Fence Installation FAQs

Fencing is an important aspect of every home and brick-and-mortar business. In addition to providing security, privacy, and safety, fencing can also be decorative, while also marking property lines.

Preparing to install a new fence at your home or place of business? Consider the following:


Like any large project, it’s important to consider your budget. The price of fence panels varies greatly depending on which material you choose, as well as the size of your fence.

If you select wood fence panels, for example, your total cost for a small garden fence will be significantly less than the cost for a picket fence surrounding your entire property.

To find out the average cost of a new fence or to get rates about your specific fencing needs, request pricing online at any time.


As mentioned above, materials and size are both crucial considerations. But a fence installation is about much more than that. What’s the full scope of work? Think about what kind of fence gate you need — an access gate, auto door gate, or something else? Is it a deck railing or pool fence you’re looking to install?

All these choices will affect your scope of work.


Does your fence need to be completed by a certain date? How much time does that allow for ordering materials and scheduling installation? Be sure to consider the time of year and weather when figuring out a deadline.
