Designing a new fence?
Check out our Pinterest Fencing Board for ideas on designing your new Fence – and once you’ve found your inspiration – here are some basic checklists for things you’ll need for your Fencing project:
Before you start
Check your property lines. Moving a fence 6″ the other way can be time consuming and expensive.
Suggest spreading the cost of the new fence with your neighbour/s.
Check with your local municipality regarding regulations for perimeter fence height.
If you’re digging news holes for your posts – call before you dig. Nobody can see what’s underground, so call before you dig to find out what’s down there. You could hit a buried cable, conduit, gas line or pipe line. Call to find out where it is safe to dig. Your call is free, regardless of where you live in B.C. If you’re calling local it’s 604 257 1940 or 1 800 474 6886 toll-free elsewhere in B.C.
Take your Measurements (twice!)
Measure how long each run of fence is, making note of each before calculating your total lineal feet.
Determine the height of your new fence and make note if you plan to build a ‘step-down’ fence.
Write down the width, height and number of Gates required. Your Gate opening should allow 1/4″ to 1/2″ each side for hinges.
