About Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Located in South Central Pennsylvania, the city of Lancaster plays home to a population of just under 60,000 residents. Its size makes Lancaster a popular residential choice for families, and homes in and around the city vary in their architectural designs. Popular styles include contemporary, ranch, bungalow, Craftsman and Dutch Colonial. Whether for keeping children safe or containing pets, many homeowners here install outdoor fencing and rely on experienced local companies to get the job done. A variety of mediums including wood, metal, and vinyl offer something for every homeowner.

Area Information for Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Lancaster, Pennsylvania has much to offer locals and visitors. Roughly 200 shops and boutiques feature products unique to the community, and the downtown area offers more than 90 eateries, many of which are locally owned and operated, for hungry diners. Art lovers enjoy a variety of museums, galleries, and studios as well as live theater, dance, and music, and students appreciate the local college of art and design.

People who choose to explore Lancaster County enjoy the beauty and charm of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Visitors often take tours of local Amish settlements, enjoy authentic cuisine, and shop for Amish crafts. Other enjoyable activities in the extended community include hot-air balloon rides, horseback riding, and walking or biking tours.

Many of Lancaster’s neighborhoods, particularly Chestnut Hill, Cabbage Hill, and West End, feature homes that are several decades or more than a century old and built on sprawling lots. Fencing costs in these areas tend to run higher that they would in a neighborhood like Prospect Heights simply because of the larger yard sizes and the homeowners’ desires to choose period-appropriate fencing, such as wrought iron designs, to maintain a historically accurate look.

Costs for Fence Installation in Lancaster, Pennsylvania

While the average cost to install a fence runs about $2,500 in Lancaster, the amount of money a homeowner spends depends on the type of fence installed and the size of the area needing fencing. The table below illustrates average Lancaster costs for different types of fencing.

Type of Fence

Average Cost Per Foot

Wood

$5 to $10

Chain link

$5 to $15

Vinyl

$20

Aluminum

$20 to $30

Wrought Iron

$20 to $100

 

Residents in Lancaster rely on local fence companies and nearby contractors to meet their fencing needs. Homeowners should get pricing quotes from at least three companies to find the best option for their fencing project’s budget.

Licensing and Insurance Requirements for Local Companies

Home improvement contractors in Pennsylvania who earn more than $5,000 in any given year must be licensed under the Home Improvement Consumer Act. Contractors apply for licenses through the Pennsylvania Bureau of Consumer Protection in the Office of the Attorney General. Also specified by the Home Improvement Consumer Act, contractors are required to carry personal injury insurance of at least $50,000 and property damage insurance of at least $50,000.

How Fencing Affects the Value of a Home

The value that fencing adds to a home depends on the type of fence installed. While a chain link fence may add practical value for homeowners with small children or dogs, the resale value of the home does not rise much with this addition. On the other hand, wood fences that offer privacy and decorative iron fences usually bring the homeowner at least half of what they spent for materials and installation when it comes time to sell.
