Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Are there any steps I should take before beginning the installation process?

A. Before installing a fence on your property, you should first check with the municipality regarding zoning ordinances and building codes in your area. It is also recommended to discuss your plans with neighbors to make sure that your fence isn’t an intrusion.

Q. What are the benefits of building a fence?


  • To provide security for your family.
  • To enclose your pet(s) & keep out others.
  • To enhance the beauty of your property.
  • To establish property boundaries.
  • To provide privacy. Remember, good fences make good neighbors.
  • To protect your kids from the swimming pool, which is required in most situations.
  • To help add property value.
  • A well-built fence will help increase your property value. A fenced-in backyard is often listed in real estate ads to attract potential customers..


Q. Why should I choose a professional fence contractor to install my fencing?

A. Professional fence contractors have the training, experience and equipment needed to install your fencing properly. As the saying goes "you often get what you pay for." There are many new fence companies, backyard/ handymen, & homeowners that attempt to build fences. However, in the end the finished product will speak for itself. You see more fence companies popping up all the time...typically they do not last very long. It takes many years of experience for installers to build a fence the way it should be done.


Q. Do you require a deposit upfront?

A. A deposit of 50% of the projected total cost is due before we will begin construction of your new fence. The balance is due upon completion and satisfaction of the project. Payment terms may be different with certain general contractors.

Q. Do you offer financing programs?

A. Yes. We work with several financing companies that can lend you the money needed for your new fencing.


Q. Can I purchase materials?

A. Of course! We have an extensive inventory of fencing products and supplies competitively priced for your convenience. If we do not have it in stock, we can special order almost anything you may need.


Q. Do you warranty your fences?

A. We always warranty our craftsmanship for at least 1 year. Depending on the type of fence selected, each manufacturer provides its own warranty on the material. See links below for various material warranties.


Q. Can we mix and match different types of fences?

A. Absolutely. Some types look better together than others, but it’s very common for homeowners to use a different type of fence on the front of the house versus the type of fence on the side and back. We will be glad to discuss with you the different options.


Q. Will staining or painting my wood fence preserve the life of my fence?

A. Yes. Our wood has a lifetime warranty against wood rot and insects. However, as with any type of wood, staining or painting will help preserve and improve the appearance of your fence.


Q. When can I stain my wood fence?

A. If you ask 10 different paint/stain experts, you’ll get 10 different answers. We’re not an expert on this, but based on our discussions with others, the average time to wait is three months, depending on the type of sealant used. Please make sure to read the label on the product you choose.
