Does my property need to be surveyed?

Ideal Fence of Madison Ltd

Most homes have been surveyed in the past and steel stakes have been placed at the corners of your property. Ideal Fence of Madison does have metal locators and we can usually find the stakes to properly complete the job. If the stakes have been removed or if we cannot find them, then a registered surveyor will need to perform a survey to verify the proper locations since we are not surveyors.

Is a permit required and are there ordinances regarding fences?

Depending on the location of your property, we can gladly advise you of a required permit or any regulations based on the most recent information. Since regulations change and some communities have their own requirements, we suggest you check with your homeowners association or municipality to see if anything is required. If a permit is needed, that will be your responsibility, but the costs of those are minimal.

Does Ideal Fence of Madison schedule to have underground utilities located?

We contact Diggers Hotline whenever we have an order for a fence installation. They will locate all public utilities (gas, electric, telephone, cable TV) and mark those prior to our installation. This is completed at no cost to the customer. It is the customer’s responsibility to alert us to any privately installed items underground such as sprinkler systems, gas lines to grills, or electrical lines to detached garages since Diggers Hotline will not locate those.

Will my property value increase with a fence?

If the fence is installed properly with quality material, studies show that it should increase the value of the property. Homes with fences sell faster than homes with unfenced yards. A fence also provides privacy and a safe and secure place for pets and children.

Do you repair fences?

Yes. We can provide an estimate for a repair to any type of fence, even if we did not install it.
