Get Ready for Your New Fence Installation: Essential Steps To Take

Updated: Jun 11


Dear Homeowners,


Are you getting ready to have a new fence installed? We've compiled a list of essential steps to help you prepare for the process and ensure everything goes smoothly when the installation team arrives.


1. Confirm Your Installation Date and Time: Make sure you know the exact date and time your fence installation is scheduled for. If there's any uncertainty, reach out to your contractor to confirm.


2. Clear the Installation Area: Create a clear workspace for the installation team by removing any lawn furniture, toys, or gardening tools from the area. Additionally, trim back any overgrown vegetation and ensure the ground is free from debris. Here are some Products we would Recommend getting to help:

Garden Clippers
41" Tall Shovel for Digging
Blue and Gray Work Gloves

3. Mark Utilities and Underground Lines: Safety first! Identify and mark any underground utilities such as gas lines, water pipes, and electrical cables. Here at Kodiak Fence and Outdoor Supply, we contact our local Bluestakes to do this for you before starting your project. You are, however, responsible marking any peronsal lines and utilities such as your sprinkler line. Here are some products we recommend to help with this:

Orange Marking Flags for Lawn
Orange Marking paint


4. Discuss Access Requirements: Ensure the installation team has easy access to the site. Inform them about any gates, narrow passageways, or specific parking areas they should be aware of.


5. Inform Your Neighbors: Fence installation can be noisy, so it's courteous to let your neighbors know about the upcoming work, especially if the fence is along a shared property line.


6. Review Local Regulations and HOA Guidelines: Check with your Homeowners Association (HOA) and local authorities to ensure your new fence complies with regulations and obtain any necessary permits or approvals.


7. Plan for Pets and Children: Keep pets and children safely away from the work area during installation to avoid any accidents or interruptions.


8. Prepare for Noise and Activity: Fence installation involves using power tools and equipment, so be prepared for some noise. If you work from home or have specific concerns, communicate them with your contractor.


9. Plan for Payment: Review the payment terms and ensure you're prepared to make any necessary payments according to the agreed-upon schedule.


10. Review Contract: Before your fence installation begins, thoroughly review the contract to ensure it clearly outlines the scope of work, timeline, costs and payment terms, warranties, permits, site preparation, and cleanup responsibilities.


We're excited to provide you with a high-quality fence that enhances your property. If you have any questions or concerns as you prepare for your installation, feel free to reach out to us. We're here to make the process as seamless and stress-free as possible.
