Residential Fences

If you are considering installing a fence, please remember a permit is required for all fences.


Municipalities often have different regulations for fences and fence companies do not always know the regulations for all the municipalities they work in. Before you order your fence, please apply for a fence permit, as most fence companies require the home owner to obtain the fence permit.

Residential Fences

In Windham, residential fences are allowed to be a maximum of 6 feet in height and lower in some areas of the yard.

Swimming Pools

All swimming in ground pools and above ground pools less than 4 feet tall require a fence. The pool fence must meet the New Hampshire State Building Code.
