Research is important before many kinds of home improvement projects, and those looking into a fence installation for their home are a great example.

In this two-part blog series, we’ll go over some of the key areas of research to ensure you’ve covered for any fence you’re considering.
Property Line Check
One of the first and simplest pieces of research you can do is to check the boundaries of your property. This not only helps you understand where your fence should go, but it also ensures that you’re not stepping onto a neighbor’s land or going too far in any direction.
It also helps to know if there are any issues with existing fencing that need to be addressed before you begin. For instance, if the fence has been installed a bit too close to the property line in some parts, you may need to adjust it before expanding.
Speaking to Neighbors
Down related lines, speaking to your neighbors is always a smart move when you’re planning a fence installation. They may have valuable insights into the property lines in your area, and if there are any issues that need to be addressed before you begin.
Additionally, it’s important to maintain good relationships with your neighbors, so having an open dialogue about the fence beforehand can help avoid any issues down the road.
Research on a Fence Company
Another important part of research for any fence project is to look into the company you’ll be working with. Make sure they have a good reputation and solid references, as well as all the necessary licensing and insurance required in your area.
It’s also important to get a feel for their customer service, so don’t be afraid to ask questions about their experience and how they handle installations, warranties or any other concerns you may have.
Finally, make sure to obtain a written quote from the company that outlines the costs and materials used for your fence. This will help you avoid any surprises during the installation process and ensure everyone is on the same page throughout the project.
