About Crystal Lake, Illinois

Crystal Lake sees steady population growth each year, following a large increase that began in the early 2000s. As such, the town has a healthy real estate market, and many people seek out this cozy suburb to lay down roots. A fence around a yard here makes a home more appealing to potential buyers, but because the area sees extremely cold winters, some types of fences, such as wood, might not always fare as well as others. By learning about the different types, homeowners can find the one that is best for their property.

A fence enhances the appearance of a home and adds privacy and security to the yard. Fences keep pets and children safely corralled so they can play and enjoy time in the sunshine. They also separate one yard from the next to create an appealing border along the property line. From chain link to wood to vinyl, there are several materials to choose from when it comes to installing a fence.

Crystal Lake Area Information

Located about an hour outside of Chicago, Crystal Lake is a suburb that stands on its own with few individual neighborhoods. Its historic downtown district underwent revitalization to bring it back to life and turn it into a destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment. It has a thriving art district that hosts a large jazz festival each year. Though it is a small town, it has several distinct districts. Additionally, it has close ties with the neighboring communities of Bull Valley and Lakewood.

Fence Project Costs

The total project cost for installing a fence depends on the type of fence and the size of the yard. Contractors typically charge per linear foot for the project. On average, homeowners nationwide spend between $1,578 and $3,668 to install a fence. In Crystal Lake, homeowners can expect to spend between $1,960.30 and $3,647.30 to install a wooden fence on their property. The table below lists the average costs for the main types of fences available.

Type of Fence

Average Project Cost

Chain/Metal

$1,100 - $2,300

Wood

$1,500 - $3,500

Aluminum

$2,000 - $5,000

Vinyl

$2,000 - $5,000

Invisible/Underground

$1,070 and up

 

Homeowners can save a bit of money on the total project cost by sourcing their own materials rather than relying on the contractor to supply them. Aluminum is one of the more expensive choices, but this investment holds up best in the area’s humid summer climate and frigid, snowy winters.

Licensing and Insurance Requirements

Illinois does not require general contractors to obtain a statewide license. Additionally, the county in which Crystal Lake is located, McHenry County, does not require a building permit for a non-privacy fence—one in which visibility through the fence is 50 percent or more. However, permits are required for privacy fences and are issued by the McHenry County Planning and Development Department. When interviewing prospective installers, be sure to ask about their insurance policies and call the insurance companies to verify if needed; insurance is critical for protecting homeowners against incurring costs associated with damage and accidents during the course of the project.

How a Fence Affects the Value of a Crystal Lake Home

Installing a fence on a property affects the value of a home by increasing its curb appeal for potential buyers. This is especially true when it ties into the landscape around the home, which can really beautify the property. It also creates a more usable outdoor space, which is appealing to those who enjoy spending time outdoors.
