Before you get your fence

Things to know prior to the installation of your Fence

A new fence should be installed as part of any construction or renovation projects. A gorgeous finishing touch that also offers security and seclusion is the ideal fence. Before having your fence installed, you should be aware of the following. If you have any queries, you may contact us by phone at (404) 324-3368‬ or by email at [email protected]


Fence Installation Preparation

We really value your business. Here are some pointers to help the installation of the fence go as smoothly as possible.

Keep in mind that the timing of your appointment can vary if the weather is severe. Usually, our team would show up there between 8 and 10 AM. When the team arrives, we ask that you meet with them to go over where the fence and gates should be placed. This meeting should last between 15 and 30 minutes or less.


Locate the precise location of the new fence line and clear it as much as possible. Although there is no official rule, we advise that you keep 6" inside the property boundary. If possible, use stakes to thread the fence’s length. This will give you a general sense of how your fence will appear and warn you of any possible issues, such as blocking trees and vegetation.


Most fence installations require access to power and water.


Inform your neighbors about your future project. When neighbors are surprised by a new fence, it may lead to conflict.


Municipalities and the HOA could ask for permission before the installation begins. Please make sure we have all proper documentation to start the installation. Work will be postponed until you obtain the relevant permits if a fence breaches the code.

Locate Utilities

Before installation begins, Hawk Fences will get in contact with 811 to survey the area for any underground obstruction (this is a cost-free service). If you are aware of any pipes, cables or any object underground, please let your Project Manager know beforehand.
