Things to Ask Fencing Businesses Before Selecting One

Choosing the best fencing pros for your specific project is very important. Look for contractors who have knowledge around the kind of fence you need and regularly works on like jobs. If you want to fence an entire farm, for example, a pro who deals mostly with smaller residential yards may not be the best choice, and vice versa.

As soon as you've completed the initial research and have pared down the list of potential fencing businesses in your area, take time to vet them. Begin by getting information around whether they have prior experience with projects similar to yours. You'll also want to know if they build fences made of your desired materials and how much it will cost in materials and labor to do the job. Getting all the necessary information up-front makes the whole process smoother. If you feel there's something missing about the quote or service, ask questions until you do to make sure you're choosing the right fencing installation business in Alexandria.

Understanding Kinds of Fences and Fencing Projects

Fencing work ranges from minor repairs to installing beautiful structures made of composite or other materials. Knowing which kind of fencing job is right for your yard helps you pare down the results for fencing experts in Alexandria. Some reasons to call a fencing contractor include:

  • Part of your existing fence needs minor repairs
  • You want to upgrade a portion of your fence, such as the gate
  • Your whole fence must be replaced
  • You want to surround an open space with a new fence

Frequently asked questions

  • Budget: Your budget is central in influencing which fence you buy. Figure out your spending limit and determine your budget per linear foot, as fencing costs can quickly add up.
  • Durability: Consider strength, lifespan, resistance to pests, rot and fungus, rust, and the material’s ability to withstand local weather conditions.
  • Maintenance: Maintenance, cleaning and repairs should be simple and minimal.
  • Purpose: The style of fence you choose should be suitable for its intended purpose. 
  • Installation: Find out what installation requirements, such as foundations or supports, are necessary. Research if DIY is possible or if professional installation is your only option.

  • Wood fence styles range from traditional to contemporary and from purely functional to attractive and decorative.
  • Lattice fences are affordable and decorative. You can use them as privacy fences by growing dense foliage over them.
  • Vertical board fences are the most common type of residential fence. There are budget-friendly options available as well as higher-end panels. Vertical board fences are affordable choices for basic privacy and security fences.
  • Picket fences conjure up cozy images of traditional properties with carefully tended lawns. They’re good for demarcating a property boundary but don’t provide much security.
  • Post-and-rail fences are a solid choice for making a boundary over a large area, as material use is minimal. However, they don’t provide any security or privacy.
  • Metal fences are generally stronger and more secure than other materials. You can choose from highly ornate and secure metalwork or simple but functional wire. For the higher-end options, which are often costly, homeowners often reduce costs per square foot by combining the metal with brick.
  • Aluminum fencing is an attractive, more affordable alternative to wrought iron. Although it has a similar appearance, it’s not as strong as wrought iron.
  • Steel fencing is a strong, long-lasting fencing option that’s good for creating a secure barrier around your home.
  • Vinyl fencing made from PVC comes in a range of styles, including those that mimic real wood.
  • Composite fencing is an amalgamation of wood fibers, pulp or sawdust and ground plastic particles that are bonded and held together by an acrylic resin. It looks and feels like real wood and is an environmentally friendly choice, as it usually contains a high percentage of recycled materials.
  • Wire fences are not made to enhance the aesthetics of your property, although some homeowners opt for black fencing to help boost aesthetics. They are inexpensive, purely functional products suitable for DIY or professional installation.
  • Barbed wire fencing isn’t common in residential settings. While it’s an inexpensive, fierce and intimidating security deterrent, it isn’t attractive and will not add value to your home.
