One of the best value-for-dollar investments is a property line fence. A well-designed and professionally installed fence will upgrade your house and property, as well as provide security at the same time. The fencing materials that are available today can be combined in any number of ways to create an attractive one-of-a-kind feature, or installed without frills for a straightforward security fence. By working with a professional fence contractor, you’ll be able to determine the type of fence that best serves your needs, as well as learning whether this is a good opportunity to improve the appearance of your property.
There are numerous types of fencing materials, from redwood to cedar, to wrought iron and vinyl fencing that require no painting. Redwood and cedar can be installed in the standard full-height configuration, or accented with a top band of diamond lattice to add architectural appeal to an otherwise mundane wood fence. In addition, single and double gates can be installed at a driveway entrance and side yard access areas. A professional fence contractor can be enlisted to fabricate custom gates in any design, or to incorporate prefabricated gates of your choosing into the installation.
Combining different types of fence and masonry materials is another way to add architectural appeal to a property. Stone or brick pilasters, with wood spanning from one to the next, is a popular design concept that will add value and appeal to your property. Large stone pilasters can be used as gate columns, with smaller pilasters along the property line, and wood fence panels incorporated into the layout. Other designs, such as those for horse properties, would call for typical fence rails.
Professional fence contractors employ the latest design and estimating software that makes the new fence experience exciting in terms of viable options. Your particular property can be digitally enchanced with any number of design images and concept to determine the ideal fence. From that point, the materials and labor are incorporated into a bottom-line cost that works for your budget. The fence installation is then coordinated with other trades that might be involved, such as electrical or paving contractors, and the installation is scheduled to meet your convenience.
Some property owners and building contractors prefer to select and purchase fence materials from outside sources, then enlist an installer for the project. Depending on the situation, this approach may be cost-effective.
