Spring is quickly approaching and you are undoubtedly dreaming of warmer days, lemonade on the porch, and nights without kicking and screaming during homework at the kitchen table. Many homeowners use spring as an opportunity to knock out home improvement projects. If you are considering installing a fence in the spring, here are some quick tips to decide before you start the process.
Decide What You Want
This sounds obvious, but knowing what you want is essential to installing a fence. Why do you want a fence in the first place? Are you trying to keep your pets and kids in the yard? Do you want a security fence or privacy fence? Most homeowners want a fence for more than one reason, so don’t worry if your list of wants is fairly long.
Choose Your Material
Once you decide why you want a fence, decide what you want your fence to be made of. A classic white picket fence is a fabulous traditional option, but there is nothing wrong with a dramatic and elegant wrought iron fence either. Research all of the potential fencing materials you are going to use to make sure that you understand the lifespan, maintenance requirements, color options, and finishes available before you get your heart set on a certain style and can’t make it from your chosen material.
