So, are you looking to have a fence installed? As a resident of the Village of Homer Glen, you are going to need to apply for a fence permit before you can have a local fence company replace an existing fence, or have a new fence installed on your property for the first time. It is essential to note that the fence installation process cannot begin before obtaining this permit.
To submit for a fence permit, you will need the following information:
Your fence installation must begin within 180 days of when you obtain the fence permit and construction must end within one year of the date the permit was issued. If you do not meet these timeframes, you must file for an extension. Otherwise, the Village of Homer Glen will consider your permit null and void. The good news is, local fence companies can complete most projects in 1-3 days, depending on the size and scope of the project. It’s also important to remember that you must schedule and successfully pass a final inspection within one year, or else the village has the right to apply monetary penalties. Please keep in mind the building permit fee is non-refundable.
Do you live in a subdivision that has an HOA? You will want to make sure that you check with your homeowners’ association so that you fully understand their covenants and restrictions as it relates to your intended fence installation. There are some cases where they are even more strict than the rules and regulations that will be enforced by the Village of Homer Glen. In many cases, when you live in a subdivision with an HOA, you have to get their approval before having a fence installed. Here at Illinois Fence Company, we are very familiar with the rules and regulations of each subdivision.
Local fence companies are not allowed to install fences in the Village of Homer Glen without being a registered contractor. So make sure when you are getting multiple estimates from different fencing contractors that you verify they are registered to perform fence installations in your city. If you end up selecting a fence company that is not a registered contractor, your permit application will end in a denial. If you plan to do the work yourself, registration does not apply.
According to the Village of Homer Glen, you must request an inspection two business days ahead of time, but in some cases, you may be eligible for next day inspection (if applicable) if you ask for an inspection before 2 pm of the previous day. Make sure to have your fence permit number available when you call in to schedule your inspection. Make sure to complete the first inspection within six months of receiving the fence permit and make sure to complete your final inspection within one year. Otherwise, the permit will expire, and you will need to renew it. Here at Illinois Fence Company we can help you with this part of the fence installation process.
There are some critical rules and regulations fence companies need to follow during the fence installation process, when the homeowner is having a fence installed for the safety and security of a pool. For instance, pool gates, they must open away from the pool. They also must be self-closing and self-latching at the same time. The self-latching device needs to be installed 54 inches from the ground so that young children cannot easily access and open the gate. If the self-latching mechanism is less than 54 inches from the ground, the release mechanism must face the interior of the pool area and not be less than 3 inches from the top of the gate. If you have an in-ground pool, you will need to have a fence installed that is 48 inches in height above the grade of your backyard. If you have an above ground pool, any portion of the pool wall that is less than 48 inches, will require fencing in that area as well.
According to the Village of Homer Glen, it is the responsibility of the homeowner (not the fence company or village) to know where the property lines are before beginning the fence installation process. The village is not responsible for checking or verifying your property lines. So should you have a fence installed over your property boundaries, the expense to have it fixed will fall on you.

We love our fence! Carmen was so nice and professional. He didn't even mind my excessive questions. The men that came to install the fence were so quick and professional. They made sure to keep me in the loop with a couple minor snags. They were resolved quickly and with my approval. I would highly recommend this company.
Jason & his entire team were amazing to work with. The team did a great job with my fence. As anyone should do, I reached out to multiple fence company’s and not only was Illinois Fence Company price the best, I never once felt like it was a sales pinch or forced into picking their product. To me the little things mean the most, whether it was being 100% transparent with re scheduling due to weather or for simply filling out the village fence application permit so that I could easily take it to my village for approval. Thanks again for the great work!
We are very happy with our decision to hire Illinois Fence Company to install our new cedar fence. Jason was very thorough, professional, transparent, and honest. He helped us evaluate different options, and ultimately decide on the best fence for us. Would highly recommend!
Jason showed up on the day of our scheduled appointment and provided an estimate the same day. I called him a couple times with questions which he answered behind going ahead with the proposal. NO sales pressure at all which was nice. Just courteous professional service. The crew came out on the scheduled day and removed the old fence and installed the new one. A 6 ft Cedar, with 5x5 posts that were set in concrete. Very sturdy, well built and very well installed
