"I placed the request on a Saturday. He contacted me immediately and he came the next day to give me a quote. If I didn't have to work with the insurance company I would definitely have used Brandon.. He is the kind of man you feel you can trust immediately. He is someone to be proud to have on Home Advisor.

"Ediscapes are hands down the best contractors I've dealt with in Seattle. We've used a minimum of 15 different contractors over the last five years on our South Seattle Home situated on a quarter acer; more when counting our rental in Ballard and the work that we’ve had done there. Decision and Renewal went way above and beyond. They made sure we were on the same page. They made sure we were on budget. They made sure that our expectations for a timeframe matched. We had our first child on the way. Then they came in under budget, in less than the time expected to finish and didn't charge us for several improvements that they had the opportunity to make without costing them additional time or resources. They simply made value added suggestions that made a big difference. Ediscapes felt more like project partners far more than folks we hired. Both times we hired them they earned our trust, respect, kept a close eye on the details, cleaned up the worksite each day, and exceeded our expectations every day. Regardless of the outdoor project, we're contacting them first in the future. The initial project they finished for us, which their work amounted to approximately 13k of 20k, was initially appraised to raise our property value by a minimum of 50k-75k. Their attention to detail and excellent craftsmanship has likely paid for itself three times over. Thank you Ediscapes! We're looking forward to hiring you again!"

Ideas & Inspiration from Seattle Fence Contractors

Seattle Wood Fences

Residential fences can be as individual as the homeowners who put them up. For privacy, security, pets, or purely for decoration, wood fences can provide it all. This diversity extends into design as well, where picket, post-and-rail, panel, lattice, and other fence designs are easily installed with wood fencing material. Newer fencing materials are cutting into wood's dominance of the fencing market, but their benefits have yet to seriously challenge the popularity of wood fencing.

Wood Fencing
The first concern of wood fencing in Seattle has to be the persistent precipitation. The good news is that proper planning and maintenance will give your wood fence all it needs to thrive in the Emerald City's wet climate. The bad news is that you'll need to anticipate and accept the fact that you may need to seal your fence every year or, at least, every other year. For some homeowners, the beauty of a wood fence is well worth the price of this inconvenience. Cedar is a great-performing wood for outdoor use, although some tropical (and exotic) hardwoods may be even more durable. On the other hand, as long as you have your wood pressure treated and properly and regularly sealed, your fence should be in good shape for many years.

Homeowners and Neighbors
Among the best advice we've heard from Seattle homeowners is what this Seattleite told us: "Make sure that you speak to all the neighbors you share a fence with and agree on fence style and cost before you begin." This brief statement touches on several good points. First, if you're not careful with your fence and your property line, your neighbor will have every right to tear the fence down. In fact, even if your neighbor is okay with the fence, there's no guarantee that neighbor will always be the owner of the property. So to be safe, keep the fence on your property. Second, if you're willing to consult with your next-door neighbors, they may be willing to help pay for a portion of the fence that borders their property.

Cost of Installation
Both across the country and in the Emerald City, the average cost of installing a wood fence is about $2,800, albeit with a wide range. In Seattle, wood fencing projects have run anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000, and to demonstrate that these prices weren't the result of cutting corners or price-gouging, the homeowners rated these contractors between 4.7-5.0 out of HomeAdvisor's 5-star rating system. Where your project falls on this spectrum will primarily depend on three things: the size/length of your fence, the species and quality of the wood, and the labor cost of your contractor. To help keep the project within your budget and still get the fence you want, you may need to optimize the cost-effectiveness of each of these areas. Keep in mind, though, no fence is cost-effective if you're not also committed to constructing a quality fence that will remain in good condition for many years.

For DIYers, be warned that while you may be able to install your own fence, it's harder than many homeowners think. High winds and loose soil may mean you need to dig your fence posts deeper than is conventionally advised. A hilly yard, common in Seattle, may also complicate things. In fact, you'll want to make sure you clearly communicate your expectations to your Seattle wood fencing contractor. Here's what one Seattle homeowner told us: "I would have asked the contractor to extend the fence down to the ground. I'd just assumed the fence would hit the ground everywhere." By getting multiple estimates, looking at contractor's ratings, and explicitly conveying your expectations, you can be assured of a great wood fence for a reasonable cost.
