The exact time frame relies on different factors, so we cannot say as of now how soon the fences can be installed. The most significant factor that we need to consider is the production time. On average, manufacturing of fences can more or less last up to 5 weeks. But depending on the type, design, and materials of the fence, it may either take longer or shorter than the aforementioned time frame. We seek your patience since we take our time in making sure that our products meet our standards. After production, the installation may be scheduled in 1 to 2 weeks.
Typically, on an ideal setting, fence installation takes up about a week. But the actual working days are only about 2 to 3 days of the 7 days. The rest of the days are intended for cement curing time. So, there are days when the construction team may be off site.

It depends on where you live. Oftentimes, legal restrictions are implemented on a local level. We urge our clients to consult with authorities and homeowner’s association to make sure complete compliance with the law. If it is available, try to ask for a handbook as reference for a more detailed guide. Aside from that, nonconformity to the legal restrictions frequently result in delays. Because we want to avoid it from happening, we see to it to follow the rules. Normally, legal restrictions include design, material, and height of the fences. For other locations, they require permits prior to digging and construction.
Not necessarily but we encourage our clients to do so. Consulting with the neighbors is beneficial for both parties because they get a chance to talk about it. Some neighbors even collaborate with their neighbors and give contribution on the expenses. However, if your neighbor decides not to participate, they will still surely appreciate the courtesy that you showed him. Aside from that, they will also get to prepare themselves for the nuisance that the fence installation may cause them. This way, you get to avoid conflict between you and your neighbors. After all, it’s hard to live next door with someone that you’re in conflict with.
It depends. To be able to determine the depth of the fence posts, you will have to identify the height of the fences first. Average size fences require fence posts which are about 3 to 4 feet deep. Meanwhile, shorter fences will need shallower fence posts. The fence posts help in maintaining the stability of the fences. It secures the fence in its place and makes sure that it’s steady. The fence posts also need concrete to keep it locked. So, make sure to leave an allowance when digging holes for fence posts. However, we can assure you that our team can take charge of the technicalities of the fence posts.
Fences should not touch the ground. Since the ground contains moisture, contact between the two may facilitate transfer of moisture on to the fence. Moisture can be detrimental for the fence especially if it’s made of metal. It can damage the fence completely in the long run and might need repair or replacement. To avoid it from happening, maintain some ground clearance to protect your fence. Meanwhile, you do not need to worry about fences which are designed to touch the ground. Because of its design, it can withstand moisture without getting damaged so you can keep it as it is.
Yes, it does delay the fence installation. As much as possible, we try to avoid installing fences when the temperature is either too high or too low, as well as when there’s high humidity and heavy rain. Circumstances such as these may affect our materials, and may either cause it to contract or swell. Aside from that, it may also result to failure of the setting of concrete. Besides, it’s also challenging for our team to work in these conditions without being at risk or compromising the quality of work. To avoid unfavorable results, we refuse to work under abnormal conditions, and we reschedule instead.
It depends on the purpose that your fence needs to serve. Should it be heavy duty? Should it be decorative? Should it be sturdy and stable? There is certainly a suitable material for every need and type of fence. Our most preferred materials include vinyl, wood, aluminum, and steel. For those who seek for the most robust materials, we have the metal materials to offer. Vinyl, on the other hand, is perfect for those who want complete privacy. Meanwhile, for property owners who want an unobstructed view, they can go for chain link fences. Finally, if you want a sophisticated look, wood materials will surely do the job.
The height of your fences depends on your preference and the privacy that you desire. For those who want to be completely hidden behind their fences, tall fences should work for you. We can guarantee that our tall fences can provide you with top-notch safety, security, and privacy you desire. Tall fences are normally 7 to 10 feet high. At the same time, if your fences are only intended to serve as an ornament or to keep children within the vicinity, we can recommend shorter fences. Aside from being more affordable for using less materials, it will also allow your property to remain visible.
The fence will last for at least 10 years, but it varies from one fence to the other. There are numerous factors that affect fences including the type and the kind of material used. Some materials, such as chain link and vinyl, can last a long with minimum care and maintenance. Meanwhile wood, needs proper treatment prior to installation to ensure it lasts a long time. It will also need consistent annual maintenance to ensure that it remains to be in tip top condition. But here in The Fresno Fence Company, we can guarantee the quality and longevity of our products.
