Disputes over fences are common between neighbors, but the bulk of them can be avoided. To get a feel for the nature of such disagreements so that you can do your best to avoid making decisions that may cause one as you build a fence on your property, check out this ABC news clip.

One rule of thumb to keep in mind throughout the process is to not build a fence on your property that you would not want to see in one of your neighbors’ yards. You may even wish to consult with an immediate neighbor about building a boundary fence, as the costs of building and maintaining such a fence may be split between you so long as you neighbor is on board.

Choosing a fencing professional with a knack for building agreeable, low-profile fences can also help you display proper fencing etiquette. To speak with such a highly regarded fence builder in the Chicago area, call Paramount Fence at (630) 406-8410.
