You purchased a new home, congratulations! She’s a real fixer-upper, and you’re already rolling up your sleeves to prepare for the work ahead. You have a list of things you’d like to get started on, one of which is to tear down the old fence that borders your home. You’d eventually like to install an aluminum fence, but first, the old one needs to go. Before you break out your hammer and gloves, there are a few things you should consider first.
Every homeowner needs to take several steps before making any changes to their property. Some are legal steps, while some are common sense. Please be sure to be careful before beginning any project, to prevent damages to your property or even injury.
Is It Yours?
This seems simple, but it’s an important question to ask. If you are unfamiliar with the history of your property, then the fence you want to move may not even be yours. This can be determined by speaking with your neighbors first. Once you determine that the fence lines your property, you’re free to do as you please.
Contact Local Utility Companies
No matter on where you live, you should always contact the local utility company before you begin any digging. Most likely, your fence posts have been installed several feet into the ground and may have been there for a long time. There is a large change the utility companies have done installation near your fence. Giving them a quick call could save you from a big fine in the event you know how phone service or power while digging out your fence.

If you’re unfamiliar with removing an old fence, it may be best to hire a professional. If you’re confident in your abilities, be sure that you have all of the necessary equipment before you even begin.
