About San Francisco, California

From Silicon Valley to Napa Valley, the San Francisco metropolitan area offers a diverse array of businesses, homes, attractions, and architecture that appeals to everyone from hipsters to families and empty-nesters. This vibrant city is nestled in San Francisco County, and it functions as the commercial and cultural hub of Northern California. Residents here love to get outside and enjoy the ocean, as well as local hiking opportunities, when they’re not busy changing the world at their tech startups or running the kitchens of innovative gastropubs.

Beautiful architecture and a diverse housing market provide homeowners with many different fencing options. Most yards in San Francisco aren’t exactly sprawling, but a fence can make all the difference when it comes to separating a homeowner’s diminutive outdoor plot from a neighbor’s and giving the space a feeling of autonomy. Experts recommend that homeowners choose fences that best complement their homes’ styles to maximize the potential value, and in San Francisco, home style—and therefore fencing—is critical when it comes to keeping a house competitive on the city’s explosive market.

Fencing in Prominent San Francisco Neighborhoods

From Nob Hill's stellar views of San Francisco Bay to the verdant scenery and historic attractions of the Presidio, San Francisco's neighborhoods offer a diverse array of attractions and amenities to suit a vibrant and eclectic population. Some other prominent neighborhoods include:

  • Pacific Heights offers a northern shore location with boutique shops, art galleries, and artisanal food stores situated along Union Street and within walking distance of nearby quiet residential streets.
  • Treasure Island combines a rich history dating back to 1939 when it was created for the Golden Gate International Exposition, with a bustling urban-winery atmosphere. Housing here includes apartments, townhouses, and rental homes.
  • The Fillmore neighborhood centers around the renowned Fillmore Auditorium in addition to boutique shops and funky cafes. Residents of this friendly neighborhood can choose from a variety of apartments and single-family homes.
  • The iconic Haight-Ashbury neighborhood is renowned for its hippie history and its Victorian homes.
  • Japantown mixes Japanese American culture with a lively jazz scene. Cottage-style, Italianate, and Victorian homes dominate the housing market here.

Local Costs for Fences in San Francisco

Most San Francisco homeowners spend between $2,119 and $4,563 to install a fence. The cost ultimately 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 the average local price compared to the national average:

Task National Average San Francisco Average
Repair a Fence $478 $748
Install a Fence $2,598 $3,145

San Francisco’s prices are well above the national average, which is no surprise considering the city’s notoriously high real estate prices. Many homeowners choose wood fences for a classic look, although aluminum is another popular choice that stands up to the salty sea breezes and fog blowing in off the Pacific Ocean.

Necessary Licensing and Qualifications

Homeowners in San Francisco should interview several licensed, insured contractors. The State of California provides a distinct license, called a C-13 license, to its fencing contractors, who are permitted to work on all fencing types except large masonry walls. The California Contractors State License Board doesn’t require these professionals to carry general liability insurance, instead allowing them to be “self insured” if they so choose, but it’s important to hire a fence installer who does carry a policy. Ask for the name and telephone number of prospective contractors’ insurance companies to verify their policies—they’re required to provide this information if you ask.
