If you’re considering a fence installation for your Indianapolis home, you’re probably wondering what questions you should be asking before hiring a professional fence company. At Basic Fence, we’ve found that while there are many questions you could ask, a few top the list. We’ve narrowed it down to the top five questions to ask to help guide you during the fence installation process.
1. How Long Will the Fence Installation Process Take?
The timeline for a fence installation can vary depending on the size and complexity of the fence, as well as any obstacles that may need to be addressed. Generally, a typical fence installation takes a single day. However, it’s important to discuss the timeline with us. We’ll work with you to make sure the installation works with your schedule.
2. Do I Need to Request a Survey of My Property?
While it’s not always necessary to have a survey done on your property before installing a fence, it’s highly recommended. A survey will determine the exact boundaries of your property, which can help prevent any potential disputes with neighbors. Additionally, a survey can help ensure that the fence is installed within the legal boundaries of your property. We recommend a pinned boundary survey with a print map so it’s clear where the line resides.
3. Do I Need a City or County Permit?
The need for a permit depends on the city or county regulations in your area. We’ve been installing fences for years, so chances are that our professionals know about the requirements for your area. We can pull permits on your behalf to make the process go as smoothly as possible.
4. How Do I Get HOA Approval for My Fence?
If you live in a neighborhood with a homeowners association (HOA), it’s likely that you’ll need to get approval before installing a fence. The HOA may have specific guidelines or rules regarding the type and style of fences that are allowed in your neighborhood. We can help you provide documentation to get approval from your HOA. Keep in mind this process can take anywhere from 14-30 days, so plan accordingly.
5. Do I Need to Prepare My Property for the Installation?
Before the fence installation, it’s important to make sure that the area where the fence will be installed is cleared of any obstacles or debris. Additionally, any sprinkler systems or underground utilities should be marked to avoid damage during installation. We’ll work with you during the planning process so your property is ready for your new fence.
