Do I Need A Permit To Building A Custom Fence In Orlando?

Yes. Yes! Yes!!  If you want to build a fence or custom fence within the City limits of Orlando,  that fence must be permitted.   Yes. Permitted.  Yes. Approved by the powers to be…Don’t let anyone or custom fence company in Orlando convince you otherwise.  In fact, if a fence company says you don’t need a permit, run.  Run fast.  Don’t look back.   Chances are the fence company or individual is not licensed and insured. Chances are what is being requested will not meet local building codes.

If you are still thinking you don’t need a fence permit, think twice.   Build that custom fence in Orlando without a permit and more likely than not you will be cited and fined until you obtain one.  Then when you try to pull that fence permit, a city permit technician will utter words such as:

  • Historical District
  • Special District
  • Signed and Stamped Architectural Drawing
  • Planned Develop Agreement
  • Pool Code
  • Double Frontage Lot
  • Front Yard Set Back
  • Reverse Corner
  • Right-A-Way
  • Maximize Height Limits
  • Urban Design
  • Department of Transportation
  • Visibility Triangle
  • Corner Clip
  • Administrative Modification
  • Variance and much more…..

So Yes!!! You need a fence permit!  Visit the City of Orlando website and find out more: http://www.cityoforlando.net/permits/   When in doubt call Paramount Fencing or visit them on the web at www.paramountfencing.com
