3 Tips When Interested in Fencing Around Your Garden

Having fencing installed around your home can be a great way to add security, making it a great feature to look into if you have a garden that you want to keep protected. Whether the garden is located in the front of your home or the backyard, you'll need to take steps to make sure that the fencing can be installed properly.

Instead of getting just any fencing installed, you should look into the following tips so that the garden fence can work great.

Keep the Fencing at the Right Height

If you're eager to have fencing installed at home, you need to take care to choose fencing that will be the right height for your needs. Since you'll want to keep both wildlife and any pets that may have access to your yard out, you'll need to have the fencing tall enough for this purpose. Keeping the garden still easy to access with a gate can ensure that you're able to pick a taller fence for security. 

Make Sure the Plants Do Well with the Fence

As you prepare for having fencing installed at home, you need to make sure that the plants that will grow along the fence won't be affected negatively. Climbing vines, for example, could attach themselves to any fencing installed nearby. Picking out fencing that won't be damaged by your plants is essential, making it important to take your time when selecting a fence.

Choose Fencing Suitable for the Climate

Along with choosing fencing that will stay in great shape with your plants, you need to make sure that the fencing is properly suited for the climate. Keeping the climate in mind can help you pick fencing that won't be affected negatively by rainwater or snow, depending on where you live.

Taking your time picking out the right fencing can make all the difference in the way that your garden looks and how it's protected after it's been installed. For more information on choosing the right fencing, contact Allstar Fence and Deck LLC today.

3 Reasons Why Your Business Might Want to Call a Fence Contractor

If you own a business, you are obviously going to be interested in protecting your employees and inventory. While you can hire security guards or install a security system to keep an eye on your main building, you might need some additional help along other areas of the property. Here are three reasons why you might want to call a local fence contractor to get a new fence installed on your commercial property.

Theft Deterrent 

When criminals go looking for a business to rob, they generally try to seek out the path of least resistance. If your entire property is surrounded by a large, sturdy fence that looks like it would be difficult to climb, those criminals are likely to move on to an easier target. A well-built fence can serve as your first line of defense and as a deterrent for trouble.

Protect Your Intellectual Property and Shield Your Clients and Staff

If your business is located in a congested area where the public frequently walks or drives by, you might not like the idea of people being able to glance over at your property and see what is going on. Perhaps you are working on a secret project and you don't want anyone to know what is going on yet. In this situation, a
privacy fence could be exactly what you need. Another consideration is if your company typically works with high profile clients or if you are trying to negotiate a deal with someone in your industry. A privacy fence will keep the media and any other onlookers from discovering what you have in the works until you are ready to announce it.

Block Dangerous or Sensitive Areas

While fences are great at keeping people off your land, they can also be used to redirect employees and clients away from sensitive areas within your property. For example, if your property has a building that houses your power generators or other electrical work, you could build a fence around the building and station a guard at the front. This will ensure that no employee or client accidentally wanders into a dangerous space.

For more information on the benefits that a fence can provide for your business, we encourage you to

Aluminum Fencing: Better Than Other Metals

Aluminum is an ubiquitous metal. It's used in countless products and for many applications which makes it easy to forget that up until the late 1800s, aluminum was considered a precious metal and commanded a price to match. That all changed when a process was developed to extract aluminum from bauxite, an abundant rock containing lots of aluminum. With the influx of cheap aluminum came experimentation, leading to the multitude of uses we see today. Aluminum is an excellent choice for fencing for several reasons; here’s why:

  • Corrosion Resistance. Aluminum doesn't rust, which is a big advantage for outdoor applications like fencing. Iron-containing materials can be coated or plated, but as soon as that finish gets scratched off, rust will follow. The portions of post sections that sit in the ground are particularly vulnerable to rusting and corroding. With aluminum fencing this isn't an issue as a powder coating adds further protection to all surfaces, including anything exposed through punching and notching. 
  • Ease of Fabrication. Aluminum is easier to work with than iron, which cuts down on costs. It can be formed into nearly any shape or design, allowing for lots of style options! Aluminum fencing is often made to look just like wrought iron but can be had in a variety of styles. 
  • Durability. Iron is stronger overall but aluminum has a much higher strength to weight ratio. By constructing fence rails with three contact points per pick, the strength of aluminum fences is remarkably high, which eliminates sagging. The fact that it’s light weight also allows for easier, faster installation! 

Aluminum has a lot going for it, particularly when it comes to fencing. If you are in Middle Tennessee and are weighing your options for fencing, we encourage you to contact us! Even if aluminum is not the way you decide to go, we offer a variety of fencing styles, such as picket, privacy, chain link, post and rail, and vinyl options.

Is It Better to Paint or Stain a Wood Fence?

There are a lot of reasons to choose a wood fence for your yard, but primary among those reasons is that it looks great! You simply can't beat the aesthetic of wood. However, if you spend the money to install a wood fence, you’ll want to keep it looking nice for as long as possible. In this regard, it is best to cover a wooden fence with a protective coating… but is it better to choose paint or wood stain? That is the common question.

While both options are good for preserving the wood, choosing which is best for you is more about how you want the fence to look and how much time you want to put into it. Paint has become fairly popular because you can have a wide variety of design options available. However, the downside of paint is that you will need to repaint the fence every three years for optimum protection. Furthermore, before repainting, there is a lot of prep work that needs to be done. The cracking and peeling paint needs to be scraped off, and that is a time-consuming affair! So repainting a fence is often a multi-day job.

Staining is usually the preferred option by wooden fence owners. The stain protects longer and requires much less work when it comes time to re-stain it since the stain doesn't need to be scraped away. However, stains are best at highlighting the wood features. This means you have less color options available, but the results are still beautiful. If you enjoy a natural wood look as opposed to colors made available from painting, then stain is to be preferred. Furthermore, stain tends to fade much more gracefully than paint, without any flaking or peeling; so even if you are taking your time getting around to staining it again, it will still look acceptable.

Do you have questions on the information above? If so, please don’t hesitate to contact us; we would love to help you come to a decision!

Secure your Front Yard with the Right Fencing

Installing a fence in your front yard can be a great way to add more privacy to your home. If you're curious about fencing installation, but have some reservations about getting the right fencing installed, you'll need to consider what you can do to ensure that you make the right investment. The team here at Allstar Fence and Deck can help you with that!

Consider the Fence Height

As you begin to look into fencing options for your front yard, you've likely spent a lot of time considering exactly how tall the fencing should be. Without proper planning, you could end up with fencing that's either too short or too tall for your preferences.

Since you likely don't want the front of your home to be completely blocked, it's a good idea to pick fencing that is short enough to still provide a view of your home.

Choose the Right Material

With so many different types of fencing that you can choose from, it makes sense to look for fencing that has the material you gravitate most towards. With durable options such as solid wood, vinyl, or even chain-link, you can pick the fencing that suits your budget and adds the look that best fits your home.

Keep the Cost Reasonable

Taking your time to look for good prices on fencing can make all the difference in ensuring that you get a good rate, and that the fence won't be too expensive for your budget. Knowing exactly how many feet of fencing you'll need, as you begin checking out your options, can help you to get fencing that is priced fairly.

Contact us
with any fence questions and/or service needs. It’s our pleasure to make sure you’re happy with your choice of fencing once the job is done.

Insurance Companies like Fences

From an insurance perspective, homeowners and property owners will greatly benefit from installing a fence around the perimeter of their lot or yard. Underwriters and insurance carriers like fences because they provide security and are also helpful from a liability standpoint. The professionals at Allstar Fence & Deck can install fencing that fits the specific needs of any and all customers, especially when it comes to offering a protective barrier and boundary line.


A fence is a great asset to any property because it provides a barrier that can discourage trespassers and unwanted critters from entering a person's yard or land lot. Fences can come in a variety of heights and locking mechanisms, which will go a long way in showing insurance carriers that a policyholder is proactive in keeping their property protected.

Many insurance claims are filed as a result of vandalism or theft to a property. The existence of a fence will lower the chances of a structure being burglarized or destroyed during a criminal act. Repair and replacement costs can lead to a costly insurance claim on top of unsafe feelings from being a victim of theft. A fence can provide security and a sense of relief!


Many insurance claims that are filed have to do with the issue of liability. Homeowners and landowners can be at fault if a person is on their property (even without permission) and gets harmed. Many liability cases end up in the courtroom in order to decide fault. Having that said, the installation of a fence on a property will go a long way in proving to judges and juries that the property owner was taking every precaution to keep unwanted visitors off of his or her land.

Fences also help to define property lines which can be good when neighbors try to install pools, tree houses, or additional structures. A fence that adequately follows the boundaries of one's property will be a beneficial outline to the owners and others living nearby.

Fencing Replacement to Improve your Property

If your current fence is in poor shape and you've made plans to have it torn down and replaced, it's important that you start focusing your efforts on picking out a new fence that will continue to look fantastic in your yard as time goes on. If you're worried about durability with the new fencing, there are several things that you can look for to make sure that the fencing remains in the best condition possible in the years to come after the installation.

Keep the Climate in Mind

While choosing a new fence for your yard, it's important that you keep an eye out for fencing that fits the climate you live in. If you get a lot of rain or snow in your town, it may be best to avoid wood fencing unless it has been treated to be water-resistant.

Since different fencing materials can vary in how they react to the climate, it's vital that you look for fencing that will remain in the best condition even with the climate you live in.

Stick with a Neutral Style

When you want the new fencing to continue standing in your yard for a long time, it's important that you lean towards more neutral designs that won't go out of style. Vinyl fencing, as well as iron fencing, that is neutral in color and without any flashy designs can fit a variety of landscaping styles so that it won't need to be replaced any time soon.

Get Familiar with Upkeep

Understanding just how much effort is needed for maintaining the fence you choose can help you feel much better about the costs involved, as you'll be able to take the necessary precautions to extend the lifespan of your new fence.

With the above tips in mind, you should feel more at ease when it comes to starting the process of installing your new fence and keeping up the needed maintenance to ensure your money’s worth. If you have any questions at all, we encourage you to contact us here at Allstar Fence and Deck.

Tips for Creating a Beautiful Fence

Putting some effort into the surroundings of your house can help improve its appearance quite a bit. You can give your house a fresh coat of paint, cultivate your front yard or back yard garden, and surround it all with a fence of your choosing. Not only is a fence a practical option to keep animals and people off your property, but it also makes an aesthetic addition to your home.

Using Multiple Colors vs. Using One Color

You can make your home seem more colorful by using multiple bright colors on your fence. Or you can keep things simple with a fence in just one color which matches with or simply compliments the color of your home.

The Red & White Spanish Look

The Spanish look is particularly attractive. In many sea-facing resorts in Spain, the houses and buildings are painted white with beautiful red poppies growing in niches along the walls. You can do the same with your fence. Paint it white and add a few pot holders with red flowers (or just colorful flowers, if that's what you prefer!) on the outside.

Decorating with Flowers: Simple but Stunning

Pots of flowers always make a home look very welcoming. They're a simple, inexpensive option for decorating your home but the effect can be quite stunning. Your fence will no longer look like it's only meant to keep intruders out, but will give off a welcoming effect for friends and family members.

Practical & Aesthetically Appealing Fences

So why not put a little effort into getting the right fence for your property? Go for something practical as well as aesthetically appealing. You have a number of different fence types to choose from, in terms of the material from which they're made. Some will last longer than others so it is important to do your homework and ask questions before committing to a material.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions and/or service needs that you may have. The team here at Allstar Fence and Deck would love to help you out!

3 Questions to ask yourself when finding a Good Fence Contractor

A fence is an important part of your home because it keeps intruders out and clearly marks the space which belongs to you and your family. Additionally, it's important for aesthetic reasons—it lends a finishing touch to your home. So it's important to find a good, reliable fence contractor who will be able to build the kind of fence that you want for your home. Here are a few questions you might want to ask yourself before hiring:

How long have they Been Around?

It's a good idea to look into how long a particular fence contractor has been around. The longer they've been in business, the more experience they have. And this means that they're going to be familiar with the kinds of problems people run into when it comes to fences. They'll be able to take a look at your property and understand your needs in order to come up with the right fence for you.

What are their Reviews like?

In the past, you could only get recommendations from people whom you knew. So maybe you'd see a friend's fence and ask them who their fence contractor was. This is a solid way of finding a good fence contractor.

But what if you don't know anyone with a fence that you like? What if you're looking for a fence contractor who will build you a different type of fence? Well, why not look online?

There are often websites which lists reviews of the businesses in a certain area. You should be able to find out if the fence contractor you're considering has a good reputation by checking these out.

Are They Professional and Punctual?

When you first go to meet the fence contractor (or ask them to come to your house), do they show up on time? Do they thoroughly check out your property, take measurements and give you their recommendations? Do they give you a few different options for different types of fences and quote a reasonable price? These are the signs that you're dealing with a professional who's interested in doing a good job.

Do you have questions? We encourage you to contact us.

Replacing your Fence? 3 Tips for a Timeless Addition

When the fencing around your property is in poor condition, you may be interested in what you can do to replace the fence. Doing so will help it to stay in the best shape for a long time and you can avoid replacement anytime soon.

Since you want the new fence to look fantastic with your home and stay in good shape, you should look into the following tips to make sure that you have a new fence that's installed properly and is a great addition to your home.

Choose Durability Above All Else

After replacing the fencing, due to it being in poor shape, it's so important that you make durability your top priority when picking out new fencing. Many people make the mistake of picking fencing based only on the price or appearance, resulting in the fence being in poor shape just a few years later.

Looking for durable materials and spending just a bit extra can make a big difference in getting the fence that you want for your yard.

Keep the Exterior of Your Home in Mind

Along with simply choosing a fence that looks great for your needs, it's a good idea to pick out fencing that fits in with the exterior of your home. Many people make the mistake of picking out fencing that looks great in a showroom, without considering the color or design of the home itself.

Don't Neglect the Need for Landscaping

The kind of landscaping that you want for your yard can also play a big part in picking out the right fencing. For example, some fencing is better suited for climbing vines, while other fencing may look best with shrubs planted right alongside it.

Picking out new fencing can make a big difference in the final look of your home and how much you enjoy the new fence. Having that said, we encourage you to contact us so that we can help you to make the right choice!

Aluminum Fencing: The Cleaner, Greener Option for your Fencing Needs

A lot of people are trying to live a greener lifestyle these days, and to leave the smallest carbon footprint possible. For example, people recycle newspapers and bottles, drive electric cars, and use LED light bulbs; but when it comes to home repairs and additions, people sometimes overlook obvious ways to go green.

If you're thinking about installing a fence, and looking to go green, you should choose aluminum fencing instead of wood, vinyl, or other fencing options.

What Makes Aluminum Fencing Green?

Aluminum, as you know, is not a reactive metal. It doesn't oxidize, it's long-lasting, and it can stand up to a lot of different weather. Compare that with chemically-treated wood, which can attract pests, or end up leaching its preservatives into the soil. Even other metals and plastic options lack the durability of aluminum when it comes to fences.

What makes aluminum one of the most attractive options for those concerned with being green, though, is that it is completely recyclable. So even if your fence is damaged, or just wears out, that doesn't mean it goes onto a scrap pile somewhere. Instead, it gets melted down, and recycled into something new. It could be more fencing, it might be soda cans, or it might even be airplane components! Whatever it becomes, that aluminum stays in circulation.

This decreases the amount of overall waste being generated, but it also means there's less need to mine new aluminum for fresh materials. That is not a statement you can make about a lot of other materials people use to build fences with, and its one reason aluminum has remained so popular.

We encourage you to contact us!

6 Questions to Ask a Fence Contractor

Sometimes, a good fence contractor can be hard to find. If you’re in the process of looking, ask these six important questions before you commit to hiring.

1. How long have you been in business?

Businesses with a bad reputation do not stay in business for long. The length of time a contractor has been working is an indicator of both their reputation and their ability to complete the projects they work on.

2. Are you licensed, certified, and insured?

Most states require contractors to obtain a contractor's license. This means that they understand the requirements for operating as a contractor in your area. Depending on the trade, knowledge exams may be necessary for licensing in some states, but certifications can also prove a contractor knows their trade. Insurance (or a bond) is protection in case the contractor you hire does not complete the work. In other words, your project will get finished; even if the initial contractor bails.

3. Do you have any references?

Have each contractor you talk to give you contact information for two or three satisfied customers. Talk to these customers about their experience, including how well they thought the contractor communicated with them and how well the contractor handled problems as they came up.

4. What is the timeline for completing my project?

Getting a timeline for your project will let you know when a potential contractor is available to start the work, how long it will take, and how busy they are with other projects now. Be sure to ask them how they plan to communicate any changes to the proposed timeline.

5. What should I expect while your crew is on my property?

Answers to this question should include expected noise levels and other disruptions for you and your neighbors, as well as when you might need to be on the property to consult or off the property so a specific type of work can be completed. If you have extra curious or potentially interfering neighbors, you can also ask how they would handle that situation.

6. What steps will you take to protect my property?

Elaborate with questions about how they will prep the site, and their procedures for cleanup. Their answers will tell you if they are on the same page with you as far as how to care for and protect your property while doing the work.

Evaluating their answers…

Some of the information you receive from potential contractors for your fence project is easy to verify. For most states, business and contractor licensing information is available online. Review sites are a good way to get an overall picture of their reputation and work.

Do not stop there, though. Pay attention to how your questions are answered. If a contractor tries to duck a question, or they come across as someone you may have trouble working with, it is okay to pass. Your goal should be to hire a good contractor from a fence company that will work well with you.

We encourage you to contact us with any questions!

Part 2: Five Situations where you'll be Glad You Have a Privacy Fence

In Part 1 of this series, we discussed three of the five scenarios where you may want your privacy. Here are the remaining two situations that you'll want to consider.

4.) Tending to your garden

When it comes to tending to a garden or caring for your property, a considerable amount of your time may be involved. Gardening is a common hobby that many people find to be a calming and reflective time. You likely do not want an audience and a privacyfence can help with that.

Additionally, having a fence can also keep out curious children (and on occasion adults) that may want to pick your flowers or produce. It can also keep out animals that would love to eat your plants.

5.) Your home will be less visible

Depending on the height of your fence and windows, it can make it difficult or even impossible for people to look inside of your home. Your privacy while in the safety of your home is important and should be protected, especially if your home is within close proximity to the street or to neighboring homes.

Additionally, the privacy gained by a fence will make it more difficult for any potential burglars or trespassers to try to figure out how they would find their way into your home. If someone has a limited view of a home's security system, how the house is laid out, or even what's inside, this makes it a lot less likely they'll try to target your house for a break-in.

As you can see, there are many situations where a privacy fence benefits you. Please contact us at Allstar Fence and Deck so we can help you find the right fence for your home.

Part 1: Five Situations where you'll be Glad You Have a Privacy Fence

People choose to get a fence put in around their residence for a variety of reasons. They may want to improve the overall appearance of their property, or perhaps use a fence for additional safety. These are great reasons to have a fence installed, but a fence can also help in maintaining your family's privacy. When it comes to the benefits of having a privacy fence, there are many to be listed. Here are five situations that you'll be glad you have a privacy fence for.

1.) Children playing in your yard

Whether it's your own kids, grandchildren, or the children of your friends or family, it's a good idea to have a privacy fence around your property. A fenced in yard can keep them safer, so they are unable to wander outside of it, but it can also keep them out of the view of potential predators, which could help to prevent them from ever becoming a target.

2.) Soaking up the sun

If you want to lie out on your lawn and relax while soaking in the sun, you will appreciate having the privacy of a fence as it will keep you from becoming a public spectacle. On the other hand, if you have a pool, having a fence around it will provide a much safer environment.

3.) When you invite company over

If you invite family or friends over to your home for a cook-out, you won't need to worry about being watched closely by neighbors or those passing by. You’ll want your guests to feel comfortable, and not be in the direct view of others.

You may have noticed that we only listed three of the five reasons we promised… Check out part 2 of this post (coming soon!) for the two remaining situations in which you'll enjoy a privacy fence.

If you have questions, or are in need of a fencing company, please feel free to contact us.

Why You Should Have Your Fence Installed by a Fence Contractor

When you are looking to make an improvement to your home, one of the best additions you can make is the installation of a fence.  Not only can a fence improve the curb appeal of your property, but it can provide you with additional security as well. When you are looking to have a fence installed, hiring a professional fence contractor could be a great option as they will be able to provide you with a variety of valuable services.

Fence Option Selection

When working with a fence contractor, the first service that the contractor will be able to provide is the selection of the right fencing option.  When looking for a fence for your home, you will have many options to choose from including wood, picket, iron, or chain link.  Each of these options has different advantages that need to be taken into consideration and the contractor will be able to help you make the right choice based on your situation and budget.

Expert Installation

Another advantage of having your fence installed by a professional is that you will receive expert installation services.  Installing a fence is not an easy task and requires a lot of time, labor, materials, and equipment to do it right.  A fence contractor will be able to install your fence in a quality manner that ensures it is sturdy and looks great.  Furthermore, the contractor will be able to receive any necessary approvals you need from your local community.


While a new fence can last for a long period of time, there are situations in which repairs will be needed.  A fence contractor will be able to come to your home to properly assess the situation and determine whether the fence needs to be replaced or if a simple repair is sufficient.  They will then be able to make any necessary repairs in an efficient manner while limiting your costs.

Is It Time to Install a Privacy Fence?

This is a question most homeowners are likely to ask themselves at one point or another; unless, of course, they live far enough away from a busy road, pesky neighbors or a commercial property—each of which we consider to be reasons why you should install a privacy fence. Join us below as we take a closer look at each of these factors:

Busy Road
Perhaps you deal with bright headlights shining through your windows at night when you try to sleep. Or maybe you notice people looking through your windows as they walk by. Either way, no matter what the case may be, living on a busy road can be a struggle.

However, installing a privacy fence on your property can help you better cope with some of the things affecting the comfort of your home. By contacting a fence contractor like Allstar Fence & Deck, a professional will help you determine the perfect height and style based on your concerns.

Pesky Neighbors
You don't necessarily have to like your neighbors, however, it's always best to build and keep respect for one another. But if you feel like one of your neighbors doesn't hold up their end of the bargain, it may be time to handle things on your own by installing a privacy fence.

Whether they host crowded parties, carelessly trespass, or let their dogs run free onto your property, an annoying neighbor can create a world of problems. Still, this is nothing a professional fence contractor can't help you resolve. After listening to your concerns and taking measurements, they'll begin the process of helping you enjoy a much more comfortable home life.  

Commercial Property
Living close to a commercial property presents its fair share of challenges as well. From office buildings, warehouses and hospitals to retail stores, hotels and even apartment complexes, these kinds of locations can put a serious damper on your privacy.

Not only are there a lot of vehicles, foot traffic and loud noises coming from places like this, but they also tend to be brightly lit. To reduce the impact of light pollution as well as the possibility of noise pollution, a fence contractor will consider all buildings within proximity to your home in order to provide the best solution possible.

Expressing your Creativity through your Fence

A fence around your home serves as a boundary. Not only does it keep people from trespassing and ruining your garden, it also serves to extend your home to the area surrounding it. It marks your front yard and back yard as a part of your home, thus extending that feeling of comfort and happiness that you get in a house that belongs to you and your family.

Expressing your Creativity

Since the front and back yards are extensions of the home, people like to put some effort into enclosing and beautifying them. By putting your own personal stamp into the land that belongs to you, as well as the fence surrounding it, you're expressing your creativity for everyone to see and enjoy. You can either go with a classic white picket fence or fences in a multitude of colors, depending on what appeals to you.

The Classic White Picket Fence

There's a reason why the white picket fence is always included in images of the perfect home. There's something fresh and clean about a white fence. It might be set up to keep intruders out but it never looks forbidding. Plus, a white fence pretty much goes with any color scheme you might have set up for your home.

Fences in Complementary Colors

It's not necessary to paint your entire fence one color. You can also play around with using two or more colors.
  • You could paint a fence blue and yellow. This gives a playful look to the yard, especially if you have a children's area in it.
  • A blue and white fence can give your yard a sophisticated look. It's a good choice if you have a neat yard with well-trimmed plants and boxes of flowers.
  • You can also paint your fence in the same colors as your house. For example, if your house is white with a brown roof, you can use the same colors in your fence.
Go for a Balanced Look

The above suggestions can get you started when it comes to painting your fence and enclosing your front and back yard. But there are literally hundreds of different combinations you could use. Just make sure that your yard doesn't end up looking too "busy" with too many colors or too dull because you haven't used enough colors. Try to go for a balanced look.

If you have questions or are in need of service, please feel free to contact us at Allstar Fence and Deck.
