Common Fence FAQ's

Best Deer Fencing

Keeping deer out of your yard or garden can be accomplished with three common fence types, including chain link, split rail wood fence with chain link, or wood fencing. With a chain-link fence, you don’t get a lot of privacy, but they can be installed up to 12’ to keep the deer out. A split rail wood fence with chain link boosts your home’s curb appeal while also provides a custom solution to keep deer and other pests out. Wood fencing is another great option that can be built up to 6’ high and customized in your choice of color to keep deer out with a stylish appearance.

Best Fences for Dogs

When choosing the right fence for your dog, be sure to consider the dog breed and size, aesthetics, and the size of your lot. A wooden or vinyl 6’ privacy fence is a great way to keep your dog contained and also provides privacy for easily distracted dogs. With a split rail fence, you get a beautiful look and the ability to protect your dog from escape and outside distractions. A chain-link fence is one of the most common and effective options for dog fencing.

Best Fences for Pools

There are three popular types of fencing used for pools, including ornamental aluminum fencing, PVC fencing, and wood fencing. If you are looking for a durable, low maintenance fence with a sophisticated appearance, ornamental fencing is your best option. PVC fencing offers privacy and safety in a variety of low maintenance styles. Woof fencing is customizable and inexpensive but does require more maintenance than other materials.

How Much is Fence Installation?

Based on information from HomeAdvisor, most homeowners can expect to spend between $1,645 and $3,946 for fence installation, with the average cost being roughly $2,737. There are a variety of factors that affect the cost of your fence installation, which include the cost for permits, parts, grading the land, utilities, labor, and the height of the fence. The type of material you choose can also increase or lower the cost. For example, chain-link is more cost-effective, whereas vinyl can be more expensive.

Should I Repair or Replace my Fence?

In some cases, repairs can be completed. For vinyl or aluminum fencing, the damaged rails or vinyl pickets can be replaced. For a damaged wooden fence, wood filler or putty can be used to repair smaller cracks or holes. More severely damaged boards or rails can be replaced. In some cases, replacement is more cost-effective. If you need to replace more than 20% of your fence pickets or fence panels, then it is recommended that you replace the entire fence.
