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.

Repairs


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 Aluminum Fencing Right for You?

Just about everyone knows that old story about how Tom Sawyer tricked his friends into whitewashing his Aunt Polly's fence, and how they were happy to do it, thinking it was some kind of contest. The truth of the matter was that fence painting is awful and Tom knew it! If only he never had to paint that fence. Well, back in those days, protecting and maintaining your fence was not only inevitable, but extremely necessary if you wanted to keep something around for longer than a few seasons. Today we have the benefit of modern building materials, including aluminum fencing, which never needs to be painted.

There are so many advantages to aluminum fencing over the traditional wood alternative. So let's begin with some pros and cons to help you decide which is best for you.

  • Strong materials resistant to weather of all kinds
  • Uniform building components without variance of structural integrity
  • Aesthetic uniformity, which means all pieces of your fence will look alike; no oddball pickets!
  • Strength and flexibility that wooden fences cannot match. 
  • Reduction in forest depletion.
  • Resistance to insects and animal destruction
  • Not having to keep replacing fence year after year will save you money!
  • Quick and easy set up!
  • The same versatility of construction that can be expected from wood
  • Years and years of maintenance-free enjoyment!
  • They can be set up anywhere a wood fence will go.

Wherever you decide the build the fence, it is going to stand the test of time. Many designs are nearly indistinguishable from wooden fences, and the installation time is comparable! The best part is that over time, your rails and pickets won't be gnawed to pieces by animals or bugs.
