If you live in a neighborhood with an HOA, you will have to get approval from them prior to constructing your precast concrete fence. They will need to see the plans and any details you may have about the project. While a good precast concrete contractor will help guide you, you are responsible for getting approval from the HOA. The time for approval from your HOA can take, on average, one to six weeks.
Make no assumptions about the process. Here’s why: say you have neighbors around you with a particular fence, so you assume you can have that type. You skip the approval process and start the installation. Midway through the expensive installation of your new residential fence, you get a notice from the HOA that your fence is illegal.
Maybe your neighbors put up their fence without telling the HOA and got away with it. Perhaps the HOA has changed their guidelines. Whatever the case may be, you are now responsible for tearing down the work that has been done and building a new, approved fence.
Dealing with an HOA can be an aggravating experience. Here are some suggestions for making it run a whole lot smoother.
