Design & Height Requirements

In Royal Oak, you can pretty much have any reasonable type and style of fence installed at your property. This includes types like vinyl fencing, wood fencing, aluminum fence, chain link fence, and composite fencing. Styles allowed also include privacy fencing, picket fences, and ornamental fences.

The maximum height for fences installed in a backyard in Royal Oak is 6 feet tall, while fences installed in a front yard have a maximum height of 4 feet tall. Backyard fences can be any of the fence styles mentioned in the previous paragraph, however, front yard fences must be non-privacy (non-sight-obscuring) unless they meet pedestrian and vehicle traffic visibility ordinances.

When installing a fence in Royal Oak, you can install the fence to where the finished/smooth side of the fence faces either your property or your neighbor’s property. This is an ordinance that has recently changed, it used to be required that the finished side of the fence face your neighbors property.

In no situations are you allowed to install barbed wire, razor ribbon or any fence with an electrical charge around a residential property in Royal Oak.

Location Requirements

Backyard fences installed in Royal Oak can be installed along all rear property lines and along the sides of your house, but not extending beyond the front corners of the house. The potential exception to this is if your fence is a non-privacy fence and no taller than 4-ft tall. However, this is up to the discretion of the city inspector.

If you live on a corner lot, you may install your fence around your rear property and into your side/front yard (towards the side street) as long as you stay at least 1-ft away from the public sidewalk AND your fence meets all traffic and pedestrian visibility requirements.
