The answer is according to the fencing project. Some fencing projects take longer to install compared to others. Fence installations that require deep digging as well as projects that cover a very wide area take a longer time of work. Upon consultation with our team, our experts will be estimating the time of completion, that is, outside of unprecedented events and occurrences. However, this estimated time is subject to variation especially because we uphold our satisfaction guarantee. Up until the point of your satisfaction, we will not declare the project completed. Other influential factors include holidays, and extreme weather conditions that do not allow for installation work. We prioritize our team’s safety greatly.

Clients actually have the option to have the fence touch the ground or otherwise. The clients who request their fence installation not to touch the ground most likely do so for maintenance and durability purposes. Fences that do not touch the ground have greater chances against weathering from different weathering elements found in soil. Clients who choose securing their fences to the ground do so for privacy and fence stability. Having the fence attached to the ground does away with the open sightline making for better privacy as well as an added layer of stability since the fence material is reinforced to the ground.
Yes, it does affect the time duration of the installation process. When consulting with our team of experts, aside from costing estimate, they also provide you with an estimated time of fence completion. This estimate is affected by factors that are beyond our team’s control, and that includes weather. Extreme weather that does not make for suitable and safe working environment for our team will surely delay the project since we won’t be dispatching our team to the field if it so happens. We have a high regard for our team’s safety. In the event of cancelled work days, we will be in complete communication with you on the changes in the arrangement.
This depends on your fence installation type, area location, purpose and budget. We have offerings that are specific to the installation type. For example, backstop fences are only made of steel since the fence’s function is more on strength and protection (spectator safety). Some area locations also have more suitable materials. For example, vinyl fences and SimTek walls work well for areas with extreme weather conditions since these materials are engineered to withstand all weather conditions to an extreme level. Purpose also plays a part in material choice since we have fence installation offerings that are for specific functions (such as dog kennels). Lastly, budget is a very important factor to consider since some materials like steel are more expensive than others. To know more about our selection, visit our services page or give us a call at 718-550-3411.
This depends on the purpose you want your fence installation to serve. When clients go for taller heights, this is usually for privacy purposes. Sport areas are also known to have fences with tall heights to protect spectators as well as serve as a security feature to avoid trespassers from accessing the premises of the court. Residential areas that install fences for more decorative purposes as well as simply to mark their property lines, go for picket styled fences of the shorter height range. If you are unsure as to what height would best suit your project, give us a call at 718-550-3411 and talk to our experts!
This will greatly depend on your material of choice as well as your degree of care towards your fence. PVC materials like vinyl and SimTek are known to last long years with minimal to no maintenance. This is the best option for people who need durability from their fence but do not have as much time to maintain it. Steel gates will need maintenance especially because it isn’t rust resistant, but this is a material known to be very enduring. Cedar lumber material is also known for its long lifespan. Some even say that it is capable of lasting a decade at best, when regularly and properly maintained.
