Are there legal restrictions on my fence?

Because of this, fence installation may have certain legal restrictions depending on your area. One particular example in some places is a zoning ordinance. If such restrictions exist in your area are in place, it would be necessary to get a permit before starting the fence installation. Certain neighborhoods may also have set restrictions regarding the height, design, and color of fences. You should check in with your locality if there are rules like this so that problems and complaints may be avoided. 

Do I need to consult my neighbors?

In many localities, there is usually no rule in place that states that you are required to consult with your neighbors regarding your fence installation projects. But then, the fence installation activities can cause some a little disturbance within the neighborhood. It may also take some time before it is done. Even if it is not required, we highly recommend that you notify your neighbors about the project that you are planning to start. This is common courtesy to them since you share certain spaces with them. This can also help them keep their children and pets from wandering into the working area.

Because different fences are made from different materials, there is also some differences when it comes to exactly how deep should the fence posts be.

Should the fence touch the ground?

According to our team of experts at The Los Angeles Fence Company, most fences should not touch the ground. This is because direct contact with the ground can put your fence materials at risk of considerable damage. Specifically, some materials such as wood may behave differently when it catches moisture from the soil. This can affect the lifespan and sturdiness of the fence. In some cases, it is allowable to have the fences touch the ground. Customers who want to keep rodents and small animals completely away from their property may benefit from a gapless type of fence.

Does the weather affect the installation?

Part of the thorough planning we do at The Los Angeles Fence Company is the organizing our methods to make sure that the installation process goes through smoothly.

If necessary, we can put he project on hold to prevent any adverse events the harsh weather may cause. We may temporarily stop procedures under conditions of heavy rains and high humidity. 

Certain fence materials can also react to cold or heat by contracting or expanding. However, we will make sure that your projects will be done with finesse despite the unpredictable weather.
