Austin Fence Installation FAQ

We’re here to help answer any questions you may have about our fences and the fence installation process. The following inquiries are some of the question we frequently receive from our customers that can provide more information prior to you consultation with Austex.

How high can my fence be in Austin?

In Austin, according to Austin’s Code Of Ordinances, solid fences cannot extend beyond 8 feet high, while you can build an ornamental fence higher than 8 feet. If your residence is adjacent to city property, you may be unable to install solid fencing at all. In any case, you’ll have to acquire a written authorization from neighbors whose properties would be affected by the fence installation in order to proceed with your project. At Austex, we stay up-to-date on city and local ordinances to ensure your project complies with mandatory regulations, so we can help you determine the types of fences suitable for your property.

Do you need a permit to build a fence in Austin?

In many cases, you may need a permit to install a fence, but the city does outline certain discrepancies. If your property isn’t within a floodplain hazard area, you shouldn’t need a permit for fences 8 feet and under. The City of Austin, as stated on their website, doesn’t regulate what kind of materials you build your fence from, though, so our wood and iron fences are always up to code.

How close to the street can I build a fence in Austin?

In most cases, the City of Austin allows you to build a fence that sits 5 to 10 feet back from the property line adjacent to the roadway. If you live on a corner lot and want to install part of your fence in the front yard, you will need to obtain the appropriate permit since certain fences can impair visibility of the roadways. If you live on an intersection, the City of Austin prohibits building any fence type higher than 3 feet if you’re installing it within 20 feet of the intersection.

What is the legal height of a fence between neighbors?

Solid fences like wood privacy fences, stone and vinyl are not to exceed between 6 and 7 feet tall. You can install an ornamental fence like pickets or iron fencing up to 8 feet. Typically, you need written consent or an agreement from your neighbors who are affected by the fence before you can obtain permitting from the city. As long as you and your neighbors are in agreement about the fence, obtaining permits for your project should be a straightforward and simple process.

Can I paint my side of my neighbor’s fence?

In short, no. The City of Austin requires fencing to be set back from the property line, so the side that faces you is still within the boundaries of your neighbor’s yard. Unless you speak to your neighbor and request to paint or stain the side that faces your home, city regulations don’t allow you to do so. If your neighbor is willing to let you paint their fence, though, you both can provide written statements detailing the agreement.

How close to the property line can you put a fence?

If you currently have a fence, we install your new fence along the same perimeter. Otherwise, we work with fencing ordinances to ensure your fence complies with city regulations. We do this so you can avoid problems down the road if you or your neighbors decide to sell in the future. Prior to installation, though, we highly suggest having your property surveyed to ensure you mark your fence boundary clearly.

Both crews were pleasant and done quickly.

WE LOVE OUR NEW ALL-CEDAR FENCE by AUSTEX FENCE ... they did a GREAT job from the estimate appointment thru the 2-day installation and our two neighbors that share the fence love it too! We had an all-cedar 6’ privacy fence built with #2 or better grade 5/8” X 6” cedar pickets and two cedar backer rails installed with metal posts including old fence tear down & haul away! We love how the cap & trim finished off the two public gate sections! PERFECTO! We were amazed at how your "gate guy" built the gates "on the fence" & cut it in half & it was an attached swinging gate ... it was like magic! Your crews were very skilled and did a super job! We were able to get an appointment for an estimate in one week and installation in two weeks in a very busy April 2022 following multiple tornadoes in the Austin metro. We highly recommend David Arkin our Residential Sales Representative ... he was on time, knowledgeable, professional, he took time to ask & listen to what we wanted and to answer all our questions at our estimate appointment, before we signed a contract, during the installation, and after installation. David's emailed 1-page estimate with drawing was easy to read and understand with all the correct measurements, details and cost breakdown for us to make a decision. AUSTEX also has a Residential Sales Coordinator who made the process run smooth and was available to answer questions. We purchased two extras ... the sprinkler insurance and cap and trim. We shared the cost with two neighbors & AUSTEX made it so easy for all 3 of us to pay our individual balances online ... so no collecting checks! Plus no service charge to use credit cards! Initially, I contacted 7 fence contractors, set estimate appointments with 4 fence contractors all who were recommended by my HOA neighbors … all 4 showed up! We received 4 estimates, 2 which we recommend. And 2 we don’t recommend due to lots of errors and missing info on their estimates. We selected AUSTEX FENCE because even tho they cost a little more they could install in two weeks (the other company was 6-8 weeks out), they only build ALL-cedar privacy fences, they try to reuse the existing post holes, easy to read estimate and easy for us & neighbors to pay online with no service charge to use credit cards. And AUSTEX FENCE has a 1-year warranty that covers defects in materials including the lumber and workmanship!

I hired Austex Fence & Deck to build a new wooden privacy fence surrounding the backyard. The fence looks great, construction started just a few days after the estimate, and it was completed in two business days. Every was responsive and easy to work with. I will definitely be recommending Austex to friends and family and will likely hire them again if we need more fence and deck installations or repairs.
