The Value of Planning Your Fence Project with the Expertise of a Local Fence Installer

On the surface a fence might not appear all that complicated. But there’s more to the design and installation process than placing posts and attaching panels.

Your partnership with a local fence company provides the guidance and design expertise that ensures that those essential below the surface details are handled.

Whether you’re planning your first fence project or revamping an existing fence, your local fence installers understand the process from start to finish.

  • Planning your fence design
  • Defining the purpose of your fence
  • Choosing the right materials
  • Complying with local regulations

Each of these somewhat behind-the-scenes details factor into your fence design and installation process.

What’s the plan?

Material selection and measurements are a start. Even so, beyond those initial details it’s important to create a “balanced” plan for your fence.

Balance in this instance would apply to the function, aesthetics, and practicality of your fence design.

Curb appeal, increased property values, security, and the overall alignment of your fence with your surrounding environment.

Planning the purpose of your fence

What is the primary reason or purpose for your property’s fence? 

  • Privacy?
  • Security?
  • Visual appeal?

Each individually or all the above contribute to how you define the purpose of your fencing project.

Plan your fencing material choice

The materials you choose define your plan for the durability and appearance of your fence. 

Your choice of wood, vinyl, metal/steel, trex, or chain-link encompasses factors such as maintenance, climate resilience, and cost.

Plan the style and height of your fence

For example, a low picket style fence is good for curb appeal but lacks privacy and security benefits.

On the other hand, a taller, privacy style fence provides more seclusion and security.

Whatever style and height you plan for your fence keep your fence purpose in mind.

Plan for local regulations

The final planning phase for your fence project must take into account any local zoning and neighborhood guidelines. 

Ensuring compliance will enable you to avoid potential installation and legal issues.

Align your fencing plans with your local fence installers expertise

Clarity about your fence goals and plans can now benefit from the step-by-step design and installation skills of a professional fence company.

The process could vary from company to company but generally speaking they should follow a specific fence design and installation process.

  • Identify soil composition and drainage issues

Site details are an essential part of ensuring that your specific fence plan and design choices are compatible with your property.

Customized fence design proposal

Following site assessment your fence company will prepare a custom project proposal.

Their proposal should include:

  • Detailed drawings
  • Material recommendations that align with your goals and design preferences
  • An line-item cost breakdown
  • An opportunity to collaborate and compare cost and design options prior to an agreement

Stronger Fencing

Compared to wood, vinyl fencing is much stronger. Vinyl fencing is flexible and durable, which helps vinyl out-perform wood fencing in windy conditions and with environmental exposure to UV rays and weather.

More Options Available

Vinyl fencing is available in a wide variety of configurations to match any property, home, or purpose. Iconic, white vinyl picket fences give a feel of classic Americana with that white-picket-fence-style. Darker vinyl fences can be installed to make a space look more elegant or modern. From short picket to tall privacy, vinyl fencing can be designed to enhance your backyard or business.

Easy To Clean

Vinyl fencing can be cleaned easily with a regular garden hose. If you get a little mildew from moisture or shady conditions, you can use a mild dish soap and then spray off the fence with a garden hose. Vinyl fences are very easy to clean.

Beautiful Vinyl Fences

Vinyl fences are a bright, bold fence choice. Available in a variety of colors, vinyl fencing can be installed in a many configurations to help you enhance the beauty of your property. And, because vinyl isn’t as porous as wood, vinyl fences retain their color and finish much longer than wood fencing so you can enjoy your fence for years to come.

Unlike most fence types that have a “good side” and a “bad side,” with your Trex fence, you will get the same beautiful finish on either side. No unsightly picket defects or exposed support railings. A Trex fence is beautiful no matter what side of the fence you are on. 

25 Year Limited Lifetime Warranty

The power of the outdoors has met its match. Trex is engineered to endure decades of foul weather and foot traffic…with the warranty coverage to prove it.

Low Maintenance

Trex fencing can be cleaned easily with a regular garden hose . If you get a little mildew from moisture or shady conditions, you can use a mild dish soap and then spray off the fence with a garden hose. Trex fences are very easy to clean and typically only require it semi-annually,  making them a great option for low-maintenance fencing.

Eco-Friendly Fencing

 Trex eco-friendly composite fencing is made from an innovative blend of 96% recycled wood and plastic—that’s almost the whole thing. Trex fencing led the way green fencing more than 20 years, well before green was a buzzword. Because in the end, all of us want to look out on our fences and know that we’ve done our part. As one of the largest plastic recyclers in the U.S., Trex saves 400 million pounds of plastic and wood from landfills each year.
