General Information

Not only is the city of Troy one of the largest cities in the state of Michigan, it is also one of the easiest cities for getting approved to install a fence! The city offices/building department are very easy to work with when looking to start a fence installation project. All you need to do is properly fill out a permit application, submit it to the city, pay them some money (their favorite part) and BOOM! You have an approved fence permit.

There are, of course, a few details in between the lines. While most fence types and styles such as privacy fencing, chain link fence, and ornamental aluminum fences are approved; you will still need to make sure that your proposed fencing project meets all of the city fence ordinances and codes. If you are looking for a swimming pool fence, you will also need to make sure the proposed fence style meets the state and national pool code regulations. If you would like the help of a professional, feel free to Contact Us and we will be happy to get your permit approved for you at no additional charge!
