Best Fence Install Experts in Kitchener Waterloo – WRX Top 5

What Should You Know Before Installing a Fence?

 
There are a number of things to take into account when setting out to install a fence. First things first: what are you installing a fence for? It could be for practical reasons such as keeping pets in the yard, or just to delineate your property.
 
However, it could also be for aesthetic purposes and made to outline your beautiful garden that you’ve been working on for so long. It could also be to block noise or other disturbances while also adding some privacy.
 
Realistically, for most people, it usually is for a mix of different reasons. A properly setup fence brings a lot to your property while also having a lot of practical applications.

With that in mind, you should then take a look at what kind of fence you want. Wooden and vinyl fences are the go-to’s in most cases, however chainlink fences can be an option if you are looking for something strictly utilitarian.
 
In terms of noise and privacy concerns, tall solid fences are usually the best bet. For wooden fences of all kinds, you should keep in mind that there is a maintenance component associated. More specifically, wooden fences will occasionally need some amount of staining, sealing, or repair due to constant exposure to the elements.
 
If you are looking for something that requires minimal amounts of maintenance, vinyl might be a good option to look into. Other options available also include wrought iron, aluminum, steel, or even bamboo if you’re feeling adventurous.

Once you’ve decided on a few fence variants that fit your needs, you should make sure that your fencing plans meet local regulations. Generally speaking, fence installation is governed by by-laws either through the city or even through the local community or neighbourhood association.
 
Because of this, it’s always recommended to do some research to make sure you won’t have to go back and make expensive modifications. For Kitchener and Waterloo specifically, you do not require a building permit to install a fence.
 
However, you do need to make sure your installed fence meets a brief set of criteria. A few things to clarify, electric fences and barbed wire fences are strictly prohibited in the region on residential properties.
 
Typically, electric fences are allowed on agricultural properties and only if they are used for the purpose of keeping livestock in. Barbed wire fences are allowed on agricultural, commercial, and industrial properties, however they need to meet certain criteria as well.
 
On agricultural properties, it can only be used for the purpose of containing livestock. On commercial and industrial properties, it is allowed provided that it is at the top of the fence and facing inward.
 
That being said, I’m sure most of us don’t need to go around installing electric and barbed wire fences in our backyards. Therefore, we can just stick to meeting the regular bylaw requirements for ordinary fences.
 
You can find the full list of information in the City of Kitchener Fence Installation Brochure and on the City of Waterloo’s Page about Fence Regulations. Do be sure to consult these pages before setting off to install a fence, especially if you are taking the DIY route and installing it by yourself.

Last but not least, if you are building a party fence that divides your property from your neighbour’s right across the legal property line, you should thoroughly discuss it with your neighbour beforehand. Do be aware that this situation is a lot more complex than simply putting a bylaw-compliant fence somewhere on your property so your best bet would be to consult the city on the matter after discussing it with your neighbour.
 
Once you’ve figured out all of the above, you can start shopping around for the best fencing contractor to get the job done. To make your search easier, we’ve put together a list of the best fence installation experts servicing Kitchener-Waterloo.
