PREP & TOOLS
Before You Start
1. CONFIRM YOUR PROPERTY LINE
If you do not already have a survey of your property you will want to get one. Unfortunately, R&S Fences, and most other fence installers will not be able to provide this service for you.
You can search for surveyors near you through yellowpages, other local directories, or by using Angie's List.
We have also written a helpful blog on property lines. Read more about it at the link below.
2. LOCATE UNDERGROUND UTILITIES
It is essential that you make a Pa1Call. This call notifies any local cable, pipe, and electrical companies that you will be digging underground. They will evaluate your property and mark any important areas that you need to avoid. If you do not make this call and you hit a pipe or line, you may be at fault for this.
We have written a helpful article on making Pa1Calls. Read more about it at the link below.
3. RESEARCH LOCAL ZONING CODES AND RESTRICTIONS
Every county is going to have a different set of codes for excavation and for fences. You will need to research what the specific requirements and restrictions are for your county. Additionally, if you live in a named community with an HOA make sure to refer to your codes and restrictions for your specific community.
We address this issue in a helpful article on the location of your fence in relation to your property lines. Read more about it at the link below.
