Get a Land Survey for Fence Installation

February 7, 2020

No one would begrudge someone putting up a fence to add a little privacy to their front or back yard. Provided the job is done quickly and competently, a new fence can add value to your property and give you a little much-needed distance from your neighbors. Before they can have a fence put up, however, a savvy landowner should enlist the help of a competent land surveyor in Guadalupe County, TX.

No matter how big or small your property is, you can’t go wrong hiring a land surveyor to guarantee you’re 100 percent sure of your property lines before you get to work.

Find the pins

You may not realize it, but at the corner of every property, there are carefully placed metal pins buried deep under the ground. These pins mark each change of direction in your property line. Of course, these pins aren’t easy to find unless you’re a trained professional.

Not only does a land surveyor consult a map of your property, but they also come equipped with specialized tools designed to make the job of seeking out your pins that much easier. Some contractors may claim they know how to find the pins, but the odds are much better that a land surveyor will be able to deliver a more conclusive result when they search for the pins on your property.

No one wants to end up in court

If you’re unlucky enough to work with a contractor who puts up a fence that runs into a neighbor’s yard, then you could be in for a real problem. The investment required to have your property investigated by a land surveyor in Guadalupe County, TX will pale in comparison to the costs you’ll incur if you end up next to a litigious neighbor.

Get the size of fence you deserve

When you put up a fence on your property, you obviously want to make sure that you’re getting the most space inside the boundaries as possible. If your contractor begins their work with a muddled understanding of the property line, it’s entirely possible that you could end up with a fence line that’s smaller than you deserve. You’d be amazed by the difference a few inches can make when it’s translated to the structure of your fence.
