It’s no question that a fence can greatly improve your home or business’ curb appeal, privacy, and protection, but designing and installing a fence is no easy feat. It can take weeks of your valuable time and money to complete if you’re on your own. Before you take the plunge on a new fence, be sure to follow our tried and true tips.

Hire Professionals
When you’re ready to jump in and install a new fence for your home or business, it’s always a good idea to hire the professionals at Degraff Construction. Our expert contractors in Joplin, Missouri, are ready to help guide you through every step of the installation- -from conception to completion.

Ask Yourself: What is The Purpose?
Are you building a fence strictly for utilitarian purposes (to keep the pets in the yard or to keep the neighbor’s pets out?) then perhaps a simple chain-link or picket fence will do. Are you wanting something more stylish, or something that provides more privacy? Then something taller and more solid may be the answer: a classic wood fence or a stylish bamboo fence.

Do Your Research
Before you bring in the construction crew, it may be important to chat with other homeowners in your neighborhood, or neighborhood associations about any building codes you will need to abide by. Some neighborhoods or cities have regulations concerning the look, material, and height of fencing. There may also be neighborhood rules regarding distance from the sidewalk or property lines.

Make it Your Own
Once you’ve greenlighted the fencing plans made by the Degraff Construction contractors, begin discussing decorative pieces to add to your fencing. Simple detailing, like latticework or lights to line your fence, goes a long way in creative a fence that you can enjoy for years to come.
