Gurnee, Illinois

The Village of Gurnee is an entertaining suburb located within the Chicago metropolitan area in Lake County, Illinois. Major attractions here include Gurnee Mills Mall, which features restaurants, entertainment venues, and more than 200 shops. The area is also home to Six Flags Great America, which attracts millions of tourists every year.

Gurnee’s residents can choose from dozens of different neighborhoods, each with its own style. Many of the homes here benefit from a fence, which helps define any property and enhance its beauty.

Prominent Gurnee Neighborhoods

The Village of Gurnee bustles with activity and often draws a large crowd of tourists and visitors with its major attractions. Residents have a variety of friendly, quiet neighborhoods to choose from, each with its own appeal and charm. Some of the village’s prominent neighborhoods include the following:

  • Aberdate Estates features large, upscale single-family homes on spacious lots. Architectural styles vary among the homes located in this 48-acre subdivision.
  • The neighborhood of Bittersweet Woods is nestled near Bittersweet Golf Club. The large, custom-built single-family homes feature sprawling yards and lovely curb appeal.
  • Crescent Meadows offers modest single-family homes, most of which feature traditional, ranch, and split-level architecture styles.
  • The planned community of Ravinia Woods combines a quiet area with amenities such as exercise trails, a pond, and a 10-acre park.
  • Winchester Estates is a family-friendly neighborhood that features large single-family homes, many with classic, traditional, and Georgian architecture.

Matching the fence style to the design of the home is the key to maximizing the value that fences add. For example, Victorian and Georgian homes look best with picket fences and ornate details, while Craftsman homes benefit from the look of a stone or brick garden wall. Ranches work well with metal and vertical- or horizontal-board fences. Equally important is where homeowners place the fencing. For example, privacy fencing in the front of a home detracts from its curb appeal.

Local Costs for Fences in Gurnee

Most Gurnee homeowners spend between $1,623 and $3,644 to install fences, although the final price tag depends on a variety of factors, including the size of the space, labor costs, and the price of fencing materials. The following table provides a quick look at how local prices compare to the national average:

Necessary Licensing and Qualifications

Most construction contractors don't need a license from the State of Illinois; counties and municipalities regulate their contractors instead. The Village of Gurnee only requires electricians, plumbers, HVAC technicians, roofers, and low-voltage electricians to register. For optimal results though, Gurnee homeowners should interview several insured fencing contractors, check references, and obtain multiple estimates to be sure they’re getting the most competitive prices. Likewise, it’s important to verify the contractor’s liability insurance to avoid having to cover the costs of on-the-job accidents or property damage that the fence installer might cause during the course of the project.

How Fencing Affects the Value of a Home in Gurnee

Fences add value to Gurnee homes in several ways. Monetarily, you can expect to get back about 50 percent of the amount you spent to install the fence when you sell your home. Not having a fence, however, may cost up to 10 percent of your home’s value if it’s something the buyer really wants.
