Challenges with Installing your own Fence

For those looking into getting their own fence installed, be sure to account for these challenges:

  • Uncertainty with fabricators : without an understanding of the material and the workmanship behind your fence components, weather and aging may drastically reduce the lifespan of your investment.
  • Bylaws infractions : Hamilton has a number of fencing bylaws, particularly for residents with pools, and lack of compliance will result in rework and fines.
  • Time-consuming projects : a fence project can take 4x as long when a  service provider  is not engaged to help you, not including the time spent on buying materials, researching by-laws, and rework if anything goes wrong.
  • Uncertainty with optimizing fence life span : if you aren’t certain of how to optimize your fence installation for weather, unexpected projectiles, and wildlife incidents, make sure to contact our team today.

After spending time and money on your property, fence the last thing you want is to get tagged with a fencing by-law infraction. Here are some quick tips on how to stay compliant.  This is by no means a replacement for a full review of the actual Hamilton bylaw.

  1. Maximum height non-industrial: 2.0m  for non-industrial or non-farming zones.
  2. Maximum height industrial/farming: 3.0m.
  3. Parking obstruction: Ensure that the fence does not obstruct parking zones.
  4. Avoid using sheet and corrugated metal: avoid using the aforementioned materials in your fence when you are in a residential area or in the Niagara Escarpment zones.
  5. Avoid using barbed wire fencing: avoid using the aforementioned material for your fence unless you are using it for industrial or farming purposes.
  6. Avoid running electric current in your fence: unless for the purposes of keeping animals penned in on a farming property.  The electric fence must also meet the guidelines set out by Canadian Standards Association.

This highlight will help you get started, but be sure to talk to our qualified team  and review the full bylaw . If a property’s fence is enclosing a pool, other specific regulations will apply.
