BEFORE YOU GET YOUR FENCE

Fence Installation preparation

We truly appreciate your business.  Here are a few tips to make the fence installation process go as smoothly as possible.

If there is bad weather conditions your appointment time may change, so keep this in mind. Our crew will typically arrive between 8AM & 10AM. We ask you to meet with the crew upon arrival to review placement of the fence and gates and this process takes about 15 to 30 minutes.

Locate

Locate and clear the exact place of fence installation. Although there is no law, we recommend that you stay 6” inside the property line. Stake the fence corners with inexpensive twine and string out the entire fence line.
This will give you an idea of how your fence will look and alert you to potential problems such as trees and shrubs that are in the way.

Access

Access to water and electricity are required for most fence installations.

Inform

Inform your neighbors of what you are doing. They normally will agree and even permit you to connect to their fence if you seek permission. A new fence can cause tension between neighbors when it comes as a surprise.

Covenants

Covenants and city or county laws are important to obey. Be sure to check with your community and your governing agency for such things as fence height, type, and location. The customer is responsible for meeting these criteria.

Permits

City governments may require a permit. Be sure to inquire and comply. If a fence violates code, work will be delayed until you secure the necessary permitting.

Locate utilities

Please note Chamblee Fence will have utilities marked and they must clear before installation can happen. If you keep a locked gate the multiple utility companies will need access to your property.  These companies will include, phone, cable, internet, gas and electric. They will not locate lines such as gas lines to lights and grills, sprinkler irrigation lines and low voltage lighting. We cannot be held responsible for what we hit with an auger machine or post hole-diggers.  Please make your salesperson and installer aware of these lines to avoid problems.

Again, thank you for choosing Chamblee Fence for your fencing needs. Please feel free to reach out anytime.
