A. First, choose a material that compliments the location – especially considering the building on the property. If you’re thinking about aluminum, vinyl, or wire fence, be sure to ask for a copy of the manufacturer’s warranty. If you’re considering wood, ask about the grading and general life expectancy. Always take grade into consideration, when comparing prices!
A. All vinyl and aluminum fence posts should be concreted. Wood panel fences, such as stockade or picket fences, should be concreted. Gate posts on any sort of fence should be concreted, to ensure the gate continues to operate smoothly. Rail or wire fences do not typically need concrete; these posts can be either set in drilled holes and backfilled, or driven.
A. Vinyl and aluminum fence are basically maintenance free – another great reason to use these materials! Dirt and dust should was off easily with soap and water. Wood fences can be stained, painted, or left uncoated for a natural faded gray color. We recommend a solid stain color rather than paint, so the wood can breathe. NEVER paint a Western Red Cedar fence – only stain is acceptable for this type of wood.
A. Usually, the job will be scheduled 4-8 weeks from the time we receive the signed contract with deposit, depending on our backlog and your schedule. If you have deadlines, please let us know – we will take your deadline into consideration, and let you know if we can meet it. The morning we start the job, we usually request that someone be available to walk around the job site with the crew leader. We understand that you likely will not be present on-site always, so we like to make sure we have a contact number before you leave. Once the job is completed, we’ll conduct a walk-around with you, to ensure your satisfaction with the new fence. The invoice will then be mailed out.
A. Occasionally, we will offer winter discounts. These are subject to availability and are based on the size of the job.
