Carrie’s Fence of Palm Bay, Inc. wants your fence installation to be an enjoyable and worry-free experience. Here are a few things to think about…
  1. Decide on the exact layout of your fence. We recommend that you stay six inches inside your property line. Stake the fence corners and string out the entire fence line. This will give you an idea of how your fence will look and alert you to any potential problems such as trees and shrubs that might be in the way.
  2. Talk to your neighbors about your plans. Neighbors will generally be fine with your plans of installing a fence. A new fence can cause tension between neighbors when it comes as a surprise.
  3. Before us installing your fence, we are required by law to call for an underground utility locate. All main utilities such as water, phone, gas, and cable are located within 72 hours. They do not locate lines such as irrigation, pool equipment, or any additional lighting that you have installed as the homeowner. We cannot see what is underground and cannot be held responsible for what we might hit with an auger machine or posthole diggers. Please make sure to discuss any irrigation or other underground wiring with your salesperson to avoid any problems.
  4. If you live in a subdivision with a Homeowners Association, please check their guidelines on fence installation. Many allow only certain types and heights of fences to be installed. We require a letter from the HOA permitting the fence installation
  5. All cities within Brevard County require a permit to build a new fence. We will need a copy of your survey to obtain the permit. Also, if the project amount is $2,500 or higher, a Notice of Commencement must be filed at the courthouse before the city issues the permit; this is Florida law all for all contractors.
