We cannot advise yet the exact time frame for your fence installation since a lot of factors come into play. The two main factors affecting the schedule are manufacturing and the type of fence. On an average, fence production takes about 5 weeks. But this time frame is not uniform across all fences since bigger fences will need more production time. But we can guarantee that once the fences are out of production, we can schedule the installation in the next one to two weeks. Our production takes quite some time because we want to make sure that all our products are in their best quality. So, it is better to place your orders early.
Fence installation normally takes about a week. But the actual working days are staggered throughout the week. Most of the time, our team only for works for 2 to 3 days of the specific installation week. The reason behind the interval is to allocate curing period for the cement.

But rest assured that we will always do our best to keep the installation time short. Our team is very efficient and systematic, and we value your time.

Different areas implement different restrictions. Since we have been serving property owners for quite some time now, we know, more or less, which areas has restrictions in terms of building of fences. Normally subdivisions carry out restrictions in terms of the design, material, and height of the fence. These guidelines are specified further in the rulebooks. Meanwhile, for some, they require acquiring a permit prior to installing a fence. In areas where the population is dense, contractors and property owners need permit before digging any holes. To ensure smooth installation, we urge property owners to comply with these local limitations.
Although consulting your neighbors are not of great necessity, we encourage our clients to do so. Fence installation is a major project, and it may likely be bothersome for them. If you inform your neighbors, they won’t be caught off-guard since you have prepared them for what is to happen. If they have kids and pets in the house, they can do the needed adjustments. It may only be a modest gesture, but it is very likely that they will cherish this simple act of courtesy. In this way, you can maintain the harmonious relationship with your neighbor and if you’re lucky, they may chip in.
The depth of fence posts varies based on the size of the fences that you will install. Before we can determine the needed depth, we have to first identify the height of the fence. The average height fences typically require posts to be around 3 to 4 feet deep. Meanwhile, taller fences, should have deeper posts. Also, when digging holes, it is important to leave an ample amount of space for the concrete of the fence posts. Our team can take care of the job of determining the needed depth of fence posts, as soon as they have the exact measurements for your fences.
Ideally, fences should not touch the ground. The contact between the fence and the ground can have adverse effects on the fences. The moisture from the ground can cause deterioration on it. For fences with steel material, moisture can cause rust. Depending on the damage, it may need replacement. However, for fences which are primarily intended to restrict pets and rodents, fences may touch the ground. Just be sure that you are using materials which are moisture-proof to prevent any problems in the future. If you are unsure of which material will work best for your needs, call us for more information.
Yes, bad weather can possibly affect the fence installation. As much as we want to make our services as smooth and quick as possible, we cannot control the weather. Extreme weather conditions, whether humid or wet, can affect the process most especially with the setting and curing of concrete. Also, it can happen that fence materials may contract or swell if the temperature is either too low or too high. Since unfavorable weather conditions can affect the installation, we may possibly postpone it to a latter date. Rest assured that we will advice you as soon as there are changes in schedule.
We can help you pick the best material for your fence based on what fence you need. There are a lot of materials that you can use for your fence such as vinyl, wood, steel, brick, metal, and simtek. For specific fences, you may have two to three options of which material to use. If you are looking into getting sturdy and impact resistant fences, you can go for either steel or aluminum material. Meanwhile, if you are seeking for affordable fences, vinyl and simtek materials usually come at a good cost. For visual fences, wood material can give that perfect feel.
The main purpose of the fence will determine the height that it needs to be. Tall fences can provide the best cover, security, protection, and privacy. If you want to keep any eyes from peaking into your backyard or any property for that matter, then this is the height that will suit you best. To provide the utmost protection, tall fences are typically 7 to 10 feet high. Meanwhile, if the fence is simply to serve as design, then property owners can opt for shorter ones. The average height for short fences is around 3 to 4 feet. For more details, call us now.
Different factors affect the longevity of fences but typically, fences can last up to 10 years. Some factors which affect how long the fence can last includes the maintenance that property owners put on it and the type of material used. Additionally, weather can as well influence how long the fence will last. Fences made of metal and vinyl can last long with only minimal care and maintenance. While wooden fences are very appealing, these needs high maintenance. Prior to use, wood must be treated with pest control to ensure its protection. Yearly maintenance is ideal to keep in its perfect state.
