How to put together a fence proposal for your HOA.
What’s a site plan, and why do I need one for fence installation?
It sounds like a process, but getting your HOA to approve your fence project may be more straightforward. You need to ensure that you are following the rules. We wanted this post to serve as a quick guide to help you through the process. Please share this article on social media or with a friend if you find this article valuable.

Read the covenants, conditions, and restrictions:
These could also be referred to as the (CC&Rs). They will go over various topics like colors, holiday decorations, the maintenance and repair obligations of the property owners, shared easements between property owners, etc. The CC&Rs will outline the types of fences that aren’t allowed at the HOA. They will also let you know if a formal proposal is required before starting your project. If you take the time to read this document before you begin your fence project, you will be totally informed regarding what you can and cannot do right from the get-go. This will ensure you’ll do the job right the first time.
Become familiar with your city’s zoning laws:
Zoning laws can differ based on your location. Make sure you familiarize yourself with this information and make sure your proposal takes these factors into account before submitting it. Your fence will need to comply with your HOA requirements and any local guidelines.
Hire a fence contractor:
You must look to hire a specialist (a company that works specifically with fence installation and replacement). The job will most likely be done right the first time if you choose a specialist over a generalist. At SLEEKFENCE™ we have Trained Contractors across North America that install our modern fence product. We would love any recommendations you have; we are always looking to add to the team. When interviewing fence contractors, ask questions about what materials they would recommend based on your needs. Ask about the quality of the materials and how long they can be expected to last. There is no shortage of fence companies using lower-quality material that wears out fast. It is often hard to tell low manufacturer quality from a showroom sample. Our aluminum privacy fence and aluminum screen fence product will require little to no maintenance aside from cleaning at your discretion.
