The maximum height for privacy fences installed in Madison Heights is 6 feet tall and the maximum height for non-privacy fences is 4 feet tall. A non-privacy fence is something like chain link, aluminum fences, picket fences, etc. Aside from the height restrictions, you can pretty much install any common type of fence such as: vinyl fencing, wood fencing, chain link fence, aluminum fences, and composite fences.
The finished side of all fences in Madison Heights must face adjacent neighboring properties and not the installing party’s property. On some types of fences the posts and other support structures are built to be on one side of the fence while the finished/smooth side of the fence is on the other side of the fence.

No backyard fences in Madison Heights can be installed beyond the rear corners of your house. This means that you can enclose your entire back yard but must end your fence/gate at the back corners of the house rather than towards the front corners of the house. One exception to this may be if you have a side door giving access to your house/garage, then you may be able to install your fence beyond the rear corners to enclose that door.
If two fences are being installed alongside each other (for example, if there is an existing chain link fence and you want to install a privacy fence alongside it), you are required to install the new fence at least 2-ft away from the existing fence. This is to allow a good amount of space in between the two fences to allow proper maintenance of brush and weeds.
Fences may be installed in a front yard if they are no taller than 3-ft, are designed to be an ornamental fence, and are located at least 2-ft away from all public sidewalks and property lines.
