Fencing Tips in San Diego
- With San Diego’s mild climate, you have many choices for fences. It’s highly recommended by fencing professionals that wood fences by stained or painted to protect the fence from the sun and moisture. For best results, wait 30-60 days after installation before painting, to allow existing moisture in the wood to dry out.
- Mineral deposits and chlorine from San Diego’s hard-water can leave white spots on your fence. Dig around the sprinklers and put a T-coupling where each sprinkler head hits the fence and put it the necessary length from the fence to help diminish the fence’s exposure to water. Sprinklers can also eventually wash stain off the fence.
- In San Diego, a permit is usually required for fences over six feet tall, but there can also be other limitations and requirements depending on the city or neighborhood. To be certain your fence is within regulations, call the city you live in.
