Preparations Before Installing A Fence

Feb 11

Here are some great tips that can save you a lot of trouble when it comes to preparations before installing a new fence. Before you hire professional company and choose your fence type you should make sure that the things below are ready.

NOTIFY YOUR NEIGHBORS

It is always recommended to notify your neighbors that there will be fencing work and that there will probably be more noise than usual, taking care to tell them the expected date. They will appreciate this gesture which will allow you to maintain a good neighborly relationship.

CERTIFICATE OF LOCATION

Make sure you have your certificate of location on hand to help installers determine the precise location of the fence on your property.

MUNICIPAL LICENSE

Check with your municipality's planning department if a special permit is required for the installation of a fence.

MUNICIPAL REGULATIONS

In order to comply with municipal regulations and local customs, check with your municipality's planning department for regulations concerning height, color and permitted materials. Some cities may refuse certain types of fences and materials.

LAND PREPARATION

  • Have his land extended and the land must be leveled.
  • If you plan to install paving stones, it is strongly recommended to have the fence posts installed before laying the paving stones.
  • If you plan to install sod, install it only after the fencing work is completed as this allows you to have an equal space under the fence.

SOLE OWNER OR SEMI-DETACHED?

If you wish to choose the type, height, color and materials of your new fence alone, it must be installed within the limits of your property and you must bear the costs of its construction and maintenance alone.

To share construction and maintenance costs with one or more neighbours, you must jointly decide on the nature of the new fence, its height, color and the materials it is made of and enter into a written agreement.

THE LIMITS OF YOUR LAND

Check the boundaries of your land by locating the stakes OR the markers previously installed by a land surveyor. The stake is usually made of wood with a touch of red paint on one end, while the bollard is usually made of a metal rod buried deep in the ground.

Please note that staking corresponds to the opinion of a land surveyor as to the limits of a property and that it is the demarcation which establishes in an irrevocable and permanent way the limit between two properties when this one can be put in doubt.
