3 Things to Ask a Fence Contractor Before Construction Begins

Getting a new fence installed around your backyard can be a wonderful way to gain additional privacy, while making your home safer against both wild animals and burglars. If you’ve decided to get new fencing installed and are seeking the help of a fence contractor, you need to make sure that you’re on the same page regarding installation and the work that will be done.

Length of Installation Period

Depending on the season and day of the installation, you may be concerned over how long the project will take. In many cases, your new fencing in Nashville TN can be installed in just one day, making it a great project when you don’t want construction that will last for days or weeks.
Discussing how long the project will take can prevent any unwelcome surprises.

Foundation and Stability 

Asking about how deep the fence will be built can help a lot when you have pets or are worried about wild animals. The depth of the fence and the materials used can also reveal a lot about how stable it will be in heavy winds.

Prepping the Yard First

In many cases, you may have a lot of landscaping debris or tree roots that could be in the way of your fence. With this in mind, you’ll need to get the yard prepared before the installation begins. Checking if the contractor offers clearing services can help you determine if you need to do the work yourself first.

Being careful to discuss all of your concerns with new fencing can ensure that you feel good moving forward with the installation. We encourage you to give Allstar Fence and Deck LLC a call to discuss your fencing concerns and service needs.

Fence Contractor: The Benefits of Choosing a Vinyl Fence for Your Home

We have recently discussed several of the reasons why vinyl fencing has become so popular among homeowners. If you are looking to install a new fence on your property, here are a few additional benefits of doing so.

A Long Lifespan

Vinyl fences are extremely durable, which makes them one of the longest-lasting fencing options available. These fences are made for the long-haul, and have been known to last from 20 to 30 years before needing replacement. In fact, manufacturers are so confident in the durability of these fences that many offer ten year warranties on them. This makes vinyl fencing a great investment in your property. While vinyl may have a higher initial start-up cost than other fences, you will likely not have to spend money maintaining, repairing, or replacing this fence in your lifetime.

Vinyl Won’t Fade

Another great thing about vinyl fences is that they have been manufactured not to fade or discolor over time. This means that vinyl fences never have to be repainted or re-stained. These fences will maintain their color and beauty for years to come. Many manufacturers even guarantee their vinyl fences against fading. These factors, which make vinyl fences durable and easy to maintain, are why so many homeowners are choosing vinyl over other fencing options. Once installed, you can rest assured that you have a beautiful, durable, easy to maintain fence protecting your property.

For many homeowners, vinyl fences prove to be a great option due to its durability, the variety of style options available with these fences, and the fact that these fences require little to no maintenance. Contact Allstar Fence and Deck LLC to learn more about vinyl fencing, as well as to find out about the various fencing options available to you, and the unique benefits that each option provides.

Why Should You Choose a Split Rail Fence?

Split rail fencing calls to mind the traditional American west and is a great option for adding a sense of rustic charm to your property. If you're looking for a simple, low-cost way to mark your property line without sacrificing looks, then a split rail fence may be just what you're looking for.

Have a large area in need of fencing? A split rail fence is a cost-effective way to enclose large properties and help corral any large animals you might be raising. The large spaces between the posts and boards in a split rail fence provide a visual marker for the edge of the property line without completely cutting off your view of the scenery around you. These spaces also mean that fewer materials and less labor are needed to install the fence in the first place, usually keeping your costs considerably lower than other fencing options.

Split rail fences can be installed with two or three rails to provide more space or more of a barrier, depending on the look of the home and the needs of the homeowner. If you have smaller children or animals, then a split rail fence may not be ideal, but simple modifications, such as running chicken wire around the interiors of the fence, can be easily made to provide a less open barrier.

While open fences like split rail fences aren't the be-all end-all of fencing choices, they're a great option for anyone with a lot of land to fence or anyone who likes the rustic look of the American west and wants to bring the aesthetic home to enjoy with their family.

If you're interested in a split rail fence for your home, please contact Allstar Fence and Deck LLC today.

Why Choose a Board on Board Fence?

Good fences may not make good neighbors, but they can certainly be a great stepping stone toward building a good relationship with the folks next door and keeping your own family safe.

A board on board fence offers both neighbors several benefits, including privacy, security, and versatility in designs and finishes. Since board on board fences are wooden, they can be stained or painted for both protection and to suit the style of the homes they're attached to. Staining or painting the boards not only helps the overall design flow well with the houses, but it also works to protect the wood from any damage that might be caused by weathering and helps keep the fence both sturdy and new-looking for years after it was initially installed.

Board on board fences create a 'shadowbox' effect inside by attaching boards to both sides of the supporting structure. While there is some space between the boards once the fence is completed, it's generally not enough for a pet or a small child to squeeze through. If this is a concern for you, just choose a design that places the boards tighter together. Not only does this double-sided design mean great privacy and security, it also means that no one is stuck with the 'unfinished' side of the fence - the one that shows the support posts.

We encourage you to call Allstar Fence and Deck LLC with any questions you may have.

Reasons to Choose Aluminum Fencing for Minimal Maintenance

If you’re eager to have new fencing installed around your property, but are concerned about maintenance and the work it will take to keep the fence looking nice, it’s best to look into the following tips. Instead of choosing a wooden fence that can take a lot of work to look it’s best over the years, look into getting an aluminum fence instead with the following benefits.

No Worries Over Staining

Aluminum fencing can be a superior option over wood fences since they won’t have an issue with staining. Regularly staining a wood fence is a necessity in order for the fencing to look its best over the years, making it smart to choose a lower maintenance fence. Aluminum will remain the same color and condition over the years without upkeep such as staining.

Durable in All Climates

Some types of fencing, especially wood fences, can deteriorate over time when exposed to rain and snow. With aluminum fencing, you don’t need to worry about your fence looking poorly years later due to the weather being a factor.

Looking into the benefits of aluminum fencing and its easy maintenance can help reassure you to get the new fencing without some of the concerns that it will lead to more work for you.We encourage you to call Allstar Fence and Deck LLC for Aluminum Fencing in Murfreesboro TN today.

Five Reasons to Choose Aluminum Fencing

Do you need a sturdy but inexpensive fence to mark your property line, keep out trespassers, and add to the overall look of your home? Here are five reasons why aluminum fencing is the perfect choice for many fencing projects.

1. Low Cost

Aluminum fencing is a much less expensive alternative to more traditional wrought iron fences. While a wrought iron fence may cost you more money than a wooden fence, it's not susceptible to rotting over time or being broken during or after the construction process.

2. Low Maintenance

Wood can become rotten and can break, and wrought iron fencing will need to be repainted every few years. Aluminum is also a nonferrous metal which means it will never rust.

 3. Security

Want added security? Choose an aluminum fence with spear-tipped pickets. A fence like this is much more difficult to breach than wooden fences which can be scaled or chain-link fences which are simple to cut with the proper tools.

4. Rakablity

The ability of fences to be placed on properties that include hills is called rakability. If a fence is not rakable, it will leave gaps when going up or downhill. Most aluminum fence panels are rakable and can adjust to the slope of your property without much effort.

5. Aesthetics

Aluminum fencing provides you with a cost-effective and low-maintenance fencing option without sacrificing style. Aluminum fencing is available in a variety of styles to fit any landscape. Aluminum fences can also be more open and airy than many traditional fencing styles, giving you separation without looking like a wall cutting through your property.

We encourage you to contact Allstar Fence and Deck LLC for more information. We’re happy to help!
