Who Gets the Good Side of the Fence?
Most types of fences have a finished side with a more eye-pleasing appearance than the other side where the rails and posts may be exposed. Though you may be tempted to keep the finished side turned inward where you can see it from your patio, the industry norm is to have the finished side face outward. This ensures that your home reaps the curb-appeal benefits of an attractive fence as guests, neighbors, and passersby will be able to admire its beauty. Plus, it’s the polite thing to do for your neighbors.
Being a Good Neighbor
Facing the finished side of the fence away from your home is just one thing you can do to be a good neighbor. In fact, you may want to have a conversation with your neighbors before moving forward with a fence installation project. For instance, confirming where the property lines meet can ensure your new fence stays within your square footage and can prevent a dispute down the road. After your fence is installed, be sure to keep up with maintenance so that your new fence doesn’t become an eyesore after years of exposure to the elements.
Have Your New Fence Professionally Installed
When it comes to installing a new fence, it’s best to hire a professional for the job. With an experienced contractor leading the project, you can be sure your fence will be installed where and how it is supposed to. A properly installed fence will last for years, providing an attractive focal point for your yard that your neighbors will also be pleased to look at.
