Here are a few questions to ask yourself when planning for a fence:
- What size fence do I want/need. Where can we install it? Whether residential or commercial, knowing what size of fence is needed is one of the main factors that influence the price of a fence. Obviously, the longer and higher the fence the more money it will cost. It is important to know where your property lines are as well as any underground electrical, water, gas and irrigation lines are located. We use NC One Call to mark the lines prior to the installation. Please note that they will not locate irrigation lines or individuals have installed. Please tell us if you have septic lines.
- What type of fence am I looking for? Fences are made or all types of materials. There is chain link in many colors, wood in all styles and sizes, aluminum in colors and styles, steel and vinyl. Please look at our website, Pricing runs from the least expensive chain link to the more expensive aluminum or PVC. Wood needs the most maintenance with Aluminum and Vinyl needed less.
- How much am I planning to spend? When considering putting a fence in, money is an important consideration. Don’t just consider the installation but the life cycle cost. Wood requires the most maintenance for sure. You can get ballpark numbers using our Fence Calculator. The least expensive option is chain link and the most expensive is aluminum or vinyl. Knowing how much you can afford to spend and/or how much you plan on spending will help us tremendously when helping you find a fence that you’re happy with, but also fits in your budget.
