"The work was done the next day. The contractor NEEDS to inform the customer of all that needs to be done before giving a price. Don't wait and call after leaving to give you a list of other problems that he forgot to tell you. So far, the roof is not leaking as of 2/20/16. He does have an outgoing personality. "

"Sydney II and his team were great to work with. Each member of the team was professional and friendly. Sydney was great about communication -- be it phone, email, or text -- whatever we preferred. He was also flexible with the project timeline, when, halfway through, we opted to replace the sink. We were pleased with the finished product. I recommend Sydney and his team, and plan to use AHI again in the future."

Ideas & Inspiration from Washington Fence Contractors


Washington DC Wood Fences

With several different choices for fencing on the market, it is a testament to wood's timeless appeal that so many homeowners choose it to adorn their properties. In Washington DC, wood fences are the most popular choice among homeowners by far, and for good reason. While other materials might be less expensive or boast of better durability, there's something about wood as a fencing material that makes it as popular today as it was years ago. If you are considering a fence installation for your property in or around Washington DC, wood fencing is an option well worth looking into.

Versatile Wood Fences
One of the biggest selling points of wood fences in Washington DC (or anywhere else in the country, for that matter) is its uncommon versatility. Though not without its faults, wood is the preferred choice among homeowners because it can be easily installed just about anywhere. Not only is wood one of the easiest fencing materials to work with and alter, it is also able to take many forms and serve many different functions. Where metal fences might provide strength, they don't provide privacy; while chain link is durable and inexpensive, it lacks the classic visual appeal of wood. For homeowners in Washington DC, wood fences are likely to fit the bill, no matter what you need them to do!

Options for Fencing
Available in more styles and appearances than any other fencing material, wood simply offers homeowners more to choose from when it comes to complimenting their properties. Since wood is so easy to work with, there is no end to the variety of looks and designs you can find in wood fencing. The classic white picket is always a winner; ranch style wood fences give a property a rustic appearance and are easy to install. Once you start delving into the vast amount of options wood fencing provides, it is easy to see why so many homeowners have found it easy to pick one that suits their tastes.

Drawbacks
No material in the home improvement world is without its downside. Though versatile, beautiful, and available in more styles than any other option, wood has a few drawbacks that should be noted. Especially in an area with as much annual weather variation as Washington DC, wood fencing is going to require a bit more upkeep than other popular materials if you want it to last and look good. With hot sun in the summer, freezing winter temperatures, and all types of precipitation, constant exposure is bound to take its toll on outdoor wood. Insects can also play a role in aging a DC wood fence prematurely. There are many products on the market to reduce the amount of wear caused by bugs and climate, but the work it takes to keep a wood fence in good condition might lead some homeowners to look to other materials.

Wood Fencing Prices
The cost of a fence (especially a wood one) is determined by many factors. As different styles of fencing require different levels of involvement to install, the price of one style of fence can vary dramatically from another even if they are the same length. You also have to take into account the type of wood that is used to make the fence, and the company you hire to do the work, too.

Though no one can tell you how much the fence you want will cost without knowing the specifics, we can give you some figures we've gathered from homeowners in the area who have installed wood fences. Washington DC numbers show us that while some wood fences in the area might be installed for as little as $1,000, others might cost as much as $7,000! Though that's quite a big difference, most of the jobs we've seen in and around DC come in under $5,000 with a good portion of those running in the $2,000 to $4,000 range. Remember, getting the best price isn't always a matter of settling for a less expensive material or style; by talking to several contractors and getting quotes from each, you'll have a much better chance at getting the fence you want at a price that won't break the bank!

Fence Installation Contractors
There are few home improvement projects that offer the array of benefits you get from fencing installation. Washington DC is, like many other east coast cities, the kind of place where a fence will do more than just look pretty and mark the perimeter of your property. Issues involving privacy and pet containment are definitely at the top of the list of motives for Washington DC fencing installations, but security, curb appeal, and even plant support are also common needs your new fence can fulfill. Indeed, a single fence can perform all of these tasks and more, but even picking the perfect model fence and best fencing materials could lead to less-than-versatile (or less-than-attractive) results if you choose the wrong contractor.

When it comes to wood fence installation, Washington DC is lacking in neither companies to do the job well nor ways to find those companies. Word of mouth, online searches, ads in the phone book, or even fliers or advertisements on walls or billboards could turn up a good fencing contractor. However, few of these methods can compare to HomeAdvisor in finding the best company for the best price. Each of our contractors must pass a rigorous ten-step screening process to make sure their business is on the up-and-up, but this is only the beginning. When you use HomeAdvisor to put in a request for fencing installation, Washington DC area contractors that use us will be competing with each other for your business right from the start; this often leads to better estimates for you. Additionally, the feedback left by other homeowners who have used our contractors further ensures good service; not only will you be able to look over any complaints previous clients have had with a particular company, each company we'll match you with has an added incentive to do impress you enough to leave them positive feedback!
