Featured Review

"I hired Jerry Parrish owner of S&J's Landscaping. I had a concrete walk way around a pool and a patio that I wanted to be removed. I also had a large tree next to a pond that needed to be carefully removed. The tree and concrete needed to be transported from the back of the house to the front. They made sure they took all necessary precautions in protecting my property. Jerry's workers worked continuously in the rain, cold and not the most pleasant conditions. I would hire this firm again.

Ideas & Inspiration from Saint Louis Fence Contractors

St. Louis Wood Fences

In St. Louis, wood fences are a multi-purpose home improvement that will contain pets and children, create a private and romantic yard, and/or become its own stunning landscaping feature. The recent insurgence of vinyl and aluminum paneling into the residential fencing market makes a lot of sense for homes in St. Louis that are prone to considerable precipitation and moisture that can wreak havoc on wood fences. Still, there is no substitute for the classic look and feel of a wood fence. And it's still the most commonly requested residential fence installation. Whether you live in one of the 79 St. Louis neighborhoods, Metro-east, or throughout the greater St. Louis area, we can help you find the right person for all your fence installation, repair, and maintenance needs.

Fencing Designs
The single, biggest piece of advice we have for homeowners is to take some time and consider the look and design of your new fence. Rather than erecting a hastily chosen wall of wood, the number of options for wood fences is staggering. Height and width of panels, flat or undulating edges, color, texture, post caps, gates, and fencing hardware are just some of the details that can be altered within the basic wood fencing types. Look around at your neighborhood, magazines, and talk to local St. Louis fencing contractors about some of the projects they're most proud of.

Fence Plans
Of course, the best design in the world isn't going to do you any good with a solid nuts-and-bolts plan. You need to be absolutely certain on the boundary lines of your property. Without a trustworthy survey, your neighbor will have every right to tear down any section of fence that intrudes on his or her property. In fact, given that surveying isn't an exact science, you should error on the side of caution by at least a foot or two. Even if you're on good terms with your current neighbor, there is no guarantee the next person to move in next door will be so accommodating. Indeed, you might mention the possibility of going in together with your neighbor on the portion of fence that borders his or her property.

Maintenance and Repair
Wood fence maintenance is pretty straightforward. Without periodic sealing—ideally once a year—your wood can warp, bow, and detach from its fasteners. Meanwhile, the life expectancy of your fence can fall dramatically from 20 years or more to less than 10. The cost of hiring a professional to stain your fence can run a couple hundred dollars. If you can't reseal your own wood fence and if the idea of paying this fee at least every other year doesn't sit well with you, you should probably consider an alternative fencing material.

It's not uncommon for individual wood fence panels to deteriorate or fall from your fence. Often, the biggest obstacle for wood fence repair is finding a qualified professional to take the job. The most desired fencing contractors may have their pick of fencing projects and tend to gear their business toward more lucrative installation. Let us help you identify these local contractors, but be warned you should talk to every contractor we match to your project, as some may be quite a bit lower than others.

The Cost of Wood Fencing
The average cost of wood fencing in St. Louis is about $2,000, significantly less than the $2,800 we register nationally. Of course, neither average may resemble the cost of your wood fence with projects that frequently range from about $500 to $5,000, and large, top-of-the-line wood fences exceeding $10,000. Our data also suggests you'll spend about 20 percent more to substitute aluminum for your wood fencing and 35 percent for vinyl. On the other hand, the long-term cost-effectiveness of wood fencing is questionable, given the cost of maintenance. In any case, two or three thousand dollars may sound like a lot to some homeowners, and you shouldn't talk yourself out of a new fence installation because of the price until you've talked to and solicited estimates from our local contractors.
