What kind of warranty do you offer?

All manufacturers’ warranties vary from five years to lifetime on the material. We offer a one year warranty on the labor.

Should I notify my neighbor that a new fence is being installed?

It depends upon local ordinance of your community. Some allow you to put the fence right on the property line, others require you to be anywhere from six inches to one foot from the property line. We do recommend that you discuss the upcoming installation with your neighbor.

Do I need to be present during the installation?

We require that someone meet with the foreman on the first day of installation for approximately fifteen minutes prior to the start of work to review the layout and answer any final questions. It is also helpful to walk the fence line with the foreman at the end of the project to make sure that everything has been completed to your satisfaction. However, you do not need to be present during the main installation.

Do you trim the tree limbs or bushes in the way of the fence?

Yes we do, for an additional fee. We’d be happy to provide you with an estimate on that additional cost.

What is the process for scheduling an installation?

Once we receive a signed copy of the proposal/contract back along with a 1/3 down payment, we will schedule your project. You'll get a call from our office within two days of receiving your payment with a tentative start date for your fencing project. If your fencing project is scheduled for more than ten days from the date we receive your check we will provide you with periodic updates on when the work will actually start. While we do our best to meet the originally scheduled installation date, sometimes we are delayed waiting on materials or by the weather.

Is a deposit required?

Yes, a down payment of 1/3 of the total cost of the project is required to schedule your installation.

Do you install year round?

Yes, we do. However, there are times when the weather keeps us from working, most often in the winter.

Do you have a payment plan?

No, at the present time we do not offer any payment plans.

How are posts put in the ground?

Fence posts are installed based upon the type of fencing. The two most common options are pounded or set in concrete.

Do you contact the utility companies regarding the digging?

Yes. Our experienced installers take care of contacting 811 – PA One Call at least three days before we start your project to have any potential utilities marked on your property. Please keep in mind that utility companies do not mark on private property. If you have any previously installed underground utilities for outdoor lighting or sheds, you are responsible for marking those items before our installation crew begins work.
