It’s true, many jobs we do are right up against your neighbor’s fence, property line, or their house even. Hiring an unprofessional or discourteous fence installer can easily lead to a bad experience for the people next door.
There are some things you can do to help with this before we arrive.
Share your plans: No one likes surprises. Before installing, save yourself a fence dispute and have a conversation with neighbors. If property line issues exist, resolve them before installation. No need to show neighbors the design—that’s just inviting trouble. They have to live with your choice unless it lowers property values or is dangerous.
Put the best face outward: It’s common practice to put the more finished side of your fence facing the street and your neighbor’s yard.
Maintain and improve: It’s your responsibility to clean and maintain both sides. If an aging section starts to lean, shore it or replace it.
We also are aware that in some rare cases we are going to be going into hostile territory no matter how nice you or our crew is. The good news for us in those situations, is we get to go on to another job after, but at least we will do everything possible to not be the cause of your neighbor’s high blood pressure.
