Whether it's a classic white picket version or not, a nicely-built fence can do a lot to enhance your property's curb appeal. But it's not just there to look pretty—a Thornton fence installation delineates the borders of your property, discourages unwanted visitors and casual trespassers, and keeps pets and small children safely contained, so they don't decide to take themselves on a walk around the neighborhood.

Frequently Asked Questions About Thornton Fence Installation Near Me


Not sure if you need a replacement Thornton fence installation right now or if your old structure can last another few seasons? Here are some of the signs that indicate it's time to call your local Thornton handyman to get a new structure put up:

  • Cracked or broken pickets, slats, and rails
  • Missing pickets
  • Rotting, weathered or splintery wood
  • Peeling paint or flaky solid stain
  • Rust stains on metal fences
  • Sagging posts that shift when they're touched
  • Loose, bent, or warped chain link panels
  • Contact with the ground (rails, pickets, and slats should not touch soil)
  • Faded vinyl
  • Broken, loose, or squeaking gate latches and hinges
  • Difficult to open and close gate


Technically speaking, we can absolutely do that. However, homeowners should be aware that there are certain regulations in place that may prohibit a fence that tall. Typically, the City of Thornton requires side and rear yard fences to be a maximum of six feet tall, while front yard fences cannot exceed four feet tall, and structures more than 2'6" are prohibited in visibility triangles at intersection corners. That said, there is an allowance for fences "in select locations with additional approvals" to be up to eight feet tall. If your property meets the requirements and we're able to secure a special building permit, we can put up an eight-foot-tall Thornton fence installation. But otherwise, we have to stick to the regulation heights, so you can avoid fines for a non-compliant structure.

It's also worth noting that, in any case, the City of Thornton does require a building permit for installation service. However, our team has plenty of experience working in this area, and we know exactly which permits are required and how to obtain them. However, we'll handle that paperwork and communicate with the city, so you don't have to worry about it, and you can rest easily at night knowing our work will always meet or exceed municipal and state building codes. We'll also make sure to find out the location of underground utility lines or other obstructions before we dig post holes.


Your installation may be erected on or within property lines, but the City of Thornton does not verify property lines, and you are not legally required to have a property survey done before Thornton fence installation. But just because it's not required, that doesn't mean it's not a good idea. In a practical sense, residential land borders have a way of shifting from their original positions over time as people move in and out of the neighborhood, outbuildings are constructed, the landscaping changes, and so on.

Suppose there's any question whatsoever about where the official borders of your property lie, investing a little time and money into a proper land survey makes a lot of sense and can go a long way toward preventing nasty disputes between neighbors. It can also help you avoid being forced to relocate your structure after it is constructed—and who knows, you may have more yard space than you originally thought you did.
