Hempstead, Texas at a Glance

History and Texas spirit collide in the small city of Hempstead, situated in Waller County, Texas. This five-square-mile city is just 50 miles from downtown Houston, giving its residents easy access to big-city amenities without sacrificing the quiet, friendly atmosphere of a small town. The “City of Character” prides itself on its community spirit, stellar schools, and its annual watermelon festival.

Although the city has neighborhoods, most of its residential areas aren’t defined with a formal name. Homes are spread out throughout the city, with a mix of farmland and waterfront property breaking up the traditional home sites. Many Hempstead homeowners use fencing to define these unique properties, add privacy, protect children and pets from accidental dunks, and enhance their homes’ curb appeal.

Prominent Hempstead Neighborhoods

Although many of "The Watermelon Capital of the World's" houses are located on smaller lots, residents also have the option of buying large parcels of land or upscale farms and ranches with ponds, pastures, and plenty of greenery. Many Hempstead farms and ranches feature a combination of fence styles, with split-rail fences corralling animals in pastures, security fences blocking children's access to ponds, and privacy fences creating quiet nooks in the backyard.

Ranches and traditional-style homes, such as those found along 5th Street, 9th Street, and Shepherd Street, frequently use privacy fences in the backyard, with horizontal-board, vertical-board, and metal fences among other popular choices. The bungalows and cottages in the lakefront neighborhood located along North Bonnie Lake Drive look quaint with stone or brick walls or classic picket fences.

Matching the fence style to the architecture of the home is the key to maximizing the value that fences add, but placement is equally important. For example, in most cases, adding a privacy fence to the front of a house detracts from its curb appeal, although this isn’t much of a concern on a ranch.

Local Costs for Fences in Hempstead

Most Hempstead homeowners spend between $1,412 and $3,220 to install fences. Like most home improvement projects, the cost depends on many factors, including the size of the land, labor costs, and the price of the fencing materials. The following table provides a quick look at how Hempstead’s prices compare to the national average:

Task

National Average

Hempstead Average

Install a fence

$2,598

$2,249

Repair a fence

$478

$533

Install a stone or brick wall

$4,576

$5,320

Homeowners should choose a fencing material based on price and durability. The area’s humid, subtropical climate can take a toll on wood fences without regular maintenance. Many Hempstead residents prefer low-maintenance options such as vinyl and aluminum.

Necessary Licensing and Qualifications

Texas doesn't require its fencing contractors to have a license to build or repair fences, but that doesn’t mean you should choose just anyone. Most experts recommend interviewing at least three contractors and getting estimates to be sure the prices are competitive. Check references to get a feel for the contractor's past work and verify that the contractor has insurance. Otherwise, you may be liable for costs associated with property damage or accidents that occur at the hands of the contractor.

How Fencing Affects the Value of a Home in Hempstead

Not having a fence can cost up to 10 percent of the home’s value in Hempstead, especially among prospective buyers with children and pets and those looking for a spot to settle with their horses or cows. With the exception of chain link, most fencing adds value equal to a 50 percent return on the investment, but on ranch properties it’s possible that 100 percent of the cost can be recouped.
