How Often Should You Change Your Fences?
Depending upon the type of materials used and their age, sometimes a property owner will need to replace their fence.
In some cases, should your fencing not be installed correctly or inferior materials are used, your fence will need to be replaced sooner than otherwise necessary. Weather is another major factor for those looking to replace their fencing, as often severe weather will cause enough considerable damage to necessitate a replacement. No matter the cause, there are some important considerations to consider before making the decision to replace your fencing.
The first, do you have a permit to replace your existing fence? You will need to check your local zoning laws, even if you plan to use the same materials at the same height and placement. If you replace your fence before checking zoning laws and receiving a permit, the mistake could cost you big.
The second, is your property line correct? This may be a good time to double check. Sometimes a fence is installed short or beyond your property line, so this is a good time to correct and adjust your space to its correct size.
The third, check what is underground? You will need to know where all of the underground piping and wiring is before you start digging in. Even if your posts are going into the same spot as your old ones, sometimes the hole will need to be dug deeper or wider. The check could save you considerable time and money.
The fourth, do you want to replace it with the same fencing style and material? If the previous fence didn’t hold up so well it may be a good time to find a more durable or better suited style of fence. It could save you from having to do this again just a few years down the track.
