Three Reasons Why Aluminum Fencing is the Right Choice

If you are a homeowner looking to install a new fence on your property, you have multiple options available to you. From wood to wrought iron and steel, there are certainly a lot of different materials you can use to get your new fence installed. But one material you might want to consider for your fence, if you have not already, is aluminum. Aluminum fencing has several advantages that can make the installation and long-term care of the fence easier to manage than other types of material.

Easy to Adjust During Installation
Aluminum fencing is incredibly versatile and can be molded to handle multiple types of landscapes, whether you are installing on a flat or a sloped terrain. Try doing that with say, wrought iron, and the benefits of aluminum become quite clear. On the other hand, even though it's easy to install, it can also be customized with a unique design to give your fence the exact look and detail that you want.

Low Maintenance and Durable
Aluminum fences do not need to be painted like wood. Aluminum is also an incredibly durable material and you will not have to worry about rust like you would with iron. An aluminum fence can literally last for decades without needing much more than maybe the occasional bath with some soapy water. Come hail, sleet or snow, your fence will continue to stand tall with little effort needed on your part. The lower price of aluminum compared with other materials and the lower ongoing maintenance costs make aluminum fencing one of the most affordable options around.

Friendly to the Environment
Aluminum is obviously a recyclable material which means it is friendlier to Mother Nature than some other fencing options. That previously mentioned durability also means you won't be dealing with extra paint or cleaning products that need to be safely disposed of in the years to come. When the day finally comes when you decide to move on to something else, your entire fence can likely be recycled instead of ending up in a landfill somewhere.

If you are in the market for a new fence, make sure you take a look at aluminum before you make your final decision. Aluminum fencing is easy to install as it can adapt to almost any kind of terrain while still allowing you to come up with a design that you enjoy looking at. Aluminum is recyclable and durable, meaning you won't have to put in many hours of maintenance once it is upright.

How to Protect Your Deck This Winter

If you do not properly prepare your deck for winter weather, it can weaken and potentially require costly repairs come spring. No matter the surface, be it natural wood or composite materials, your deck needs to be winter-proofed to survive the snow, ice, and harsh winds it will soon endure. Here are some tips for getting your deck ready before the temperature drops below freezing this year:

Clean Surfaces are Key
Wood surfaces are known for trapping dirt. If the dirt remains on the surface throughout the winter, mold and mildew will accumulate. This dirt, combined with any leftover leaves from fall, can retain moisture from snow, sleet, and rain and cause discoloration on your deck’s surface. 

Protect With Stain
Protective stains are excellent at preventing damage to your deck. Choose a stain that instructs you to apply two coats. Two-coat applications are much more effective at prolonging the life of the finish.  Keep in mind: these stains are only necessary if your deck is made from natural wood.

Handling Snow
We recommend only removing snow from your deck if it can be easily brushed off with a broom. Heavy snowfalls that freeze are best left to melt on their own. Removing the snow with a shovel could end up damaging your deck’s surface.

Should you find your deck looking less than perfect despite your winterization efforts, contact Allstar Fence and Deck LLC for help!

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.

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!

The Reasons to Consider Vinyl PVC Fences for Your Property

When choosing a fence for your property, it is important to take some time to consider the options available to you, as choosing the right fence will help to ensure your future satisfaction. One of the most popular fencing options among many homeowners is vinyl, as there are a variety of benefits that vinylPVC fences provide. Here are just a few of the many reasons why you should consider a vinyl PVC fence for your home.

Easy Maintenance

One of the primary reasons that homeowners choose vinyl over other fencing options is how easy these fences are to maintain. If you have ever had a traditional wooden fence, you know that they can require endless maintenance to keep them looking like new including spraying them for termites and repairing broken boards. This can make maintaining wooden fences a time-consuming endeavor; however, this is not the case with vinyl fences. All that will be required of you to keep your fence looking like new will be to wash it with a garden hose to remove any dirt and grime. You will never have a fence that is easier to take care of than a vinyl fence.


Vinyl fences are easy for homeowners to maintain due to their extreme durability. Unlike wooden fences, vinyl fences do not attract insects, and are not damaged by them. Additionally, these fences do not expand and contract in extreme temperatures, and thus do not split or crack, and they are not susceptible to water damage. Additionally, unlike metal fences, vinyl does not rust, which makes it a superior option for people who live in damp climates, and for those who live near the coast. These factors make vinyl a great option for many homeowners, as these fences maintain their look without any effort required from you.

Contact Allstar Fence and Deck in Murfreesboro TN to learn more about the reasons why you should consider adding a vinyl fence to your property.

Save Yourself Some Work
Going out for walks with your dog can be a lot of fun for both of you and can provide both of you with some much-needed exercise. For when you're busy or tired, however, being able to turn your dog out into your fence to play can save you a lot of time and work.

Have a Dedicated Outdoor Space When Needed
At times, you might need to move your dog out of your home, such as if someone who is visiting is afraid of or allergic to dogs or if you are having work done in your home. With a fence, you'll have this dedicated area.

The Reasons to Consider Vinyl Fence Installation for Your Home

When looking to install, or replace, a fence on their property, homeowners will have several options to choose from. Ultimately, which option you choose for your property will depend on several factors including the style you are looking for; however, the most common choices among homeowners tend to be wood, chain link, and vinyl fences. If you are looking to install a privacy fence on your property, here are a few of the reasons why you should consider a vinyl fence.

A Variety of Options

When it comes time to choose your vinyl fence, you will have a myriad of options to pick from, as these fences are available in a wide variety of colors, shapes, textures, heights, and styles. Vinyl fences allow you to find a fence that perfectly matches your style, as well as your home’s design, allowing you to build a fence as unique as you are. No matter what you are looking for in your new fence, there will likely be a vinyl design option available to fit your needs.

Simple to Install

Vinyl fencing is a particularly good option for homeowners who are interested in DIY installation. This is because vinyl fences come in prefabricated sections that easily slide into place. You do not have to worry about hauling heavy materials, cutting pieces, and building sections of fencing yourself. Once your materials come, you will be able to quickly erect your new fence, and will have an attractive, functional fence on your property in a matter of hours rather than days. However, should you choose to have your fence professionally installed, having your vinyl fence installed will likely cost less than other fencing installations due to how quickly these fences can be installed.

When it comes time to choose a new fence for your property, it can be easy to become overwhelmed by all of the options available to you. Ultimately, the fence that will work best for your home will depend on many factors including your budget and your overall style preferences.

Fence Building: Why You Shouldn't DIY

In this day in age people are all about doing things themselves as opposed to hiring professionals. It only makes sense for you to want to try to save money wherever possible when the cost of owning a home is high. While this seems to completely make sense, there are some scenarios and projects that you really should just leave up to the professionals. When it comes to fence building, take a look at why you shouldn't DIY. 

While you will save money in labor costs by building your fence yourself, you absolutely have to consider the long and laborious hours that you will have to spend getting the job done. And if you're new at things like carpentry and digging, the whole process will likely be a matter of trial and error while you try to find the right materials and techniques. It will likely take you a lot longer to figure this all out than it would to just hire a professional. Not only are you saving yourself tons of time and aggravation, but you are ensuring the quality of the job as well.

To expand a bit on being even slightly inexperienced at fence building, you will probably run into obstacles along the way that you may not know how to handle. For example, if your yard is rockier or more uneven than expected, or you come across hidden wiring underground that you're not sure what to do with. A professional would know exactly how to handle these types of unforeseen issues.

You will never see a professional building a fence on their own, or at least you shouldn't. They should have one or two other professionals helping them out. Each worker will serve a purpose to make certain that everything's done properly.

Contact us today at Allstar Fence & Deck for more information on why it's best that you leave the fence building up to the professionals.

3 Advantages of Aluminum Fencing

When it comes to fencing off your property, you have a plethora of options. Traditional wood fences are attractive, and they can add a touch of rustic charm to any property. Iron fences have a Gothic, old world appeal to them. You can even opt for planting bushes, creating a green border that screens your home. But if you aren't dead set on another option, it's a good idea to look at the advantages aluminum fencing offers.

1: It's Long-Lived
Aluminum, as a material, is tough. It doesn't react to wind, rain, or changes in temperature, which means that an aluminum fence is going to look pretty much the same years from now as it does today. It will need an occasional scrub, but it's never going to need to be replaced because of rust.

2: It's Inexpensive
Aluminum is a common material that’s used for everything from car parts to soda cans. Since it's so plentiful, and so easy to work with, aluminum fencing tends to be less expensive than other options. Particularly when viewed over the life of the fencing, as opposed to just comparing the initial costs.

3: It's Easy to Install
Aluminum fencing is simple to install, and it can be set up with relative ease. No matter the size of the property, or the shape the fence has to take, aluminum fencing's light weight and simple instructions makes it something anyone could install on their own, if they were inclined to do so.

Prepare Your Property Before Hiring a Fence Contractor

If you are a business owner, home owner, or own a farm or ranch; you may need the services of a fence contractor to properly secure the perimeter of your property. Fencing in your property can increase its value and add to the attractiveness of the overall landscape. Before hiring a contractor, there are some things you will need to do to prepare your property for fencing installation procedures.

Underground Utilities 
Before any digging occurs on your property, the fence company you’ve hired needs to contact TN 811. To avoid any danger to yourself or contractors, TN 811 can tell you if lines have been run underground that could be damaged during the process of setting posts for your fences. Please note, fence companies are not responsible for anything underground that is not recognized by TN 811.

Sprinkler Lines 
Often, sprinkler lines can cross over to a neighbor’s property. You should make sure in advance of having fencing done on your property that your heads and lines are inside of your property boundaries. This will save your time and avoid interference with installation of fence lines. If you’re unsure of property boundaries, it’s best to have a survey done beforehand so you’re aware of the property lines. You can request this through a survey company.

Property Pins 
Property pins are used to establish your property lines. It is important these pins are positioned correctly and your neighbors are aware of your property boundaries. As stated above, if you’re unsure of property boundaries, it’s best to have a survey done beforehand so you’re aware of the property lines.

If you follow these steps to properly prepare your property for fencing installation procedures, the process of installation should go smoothly and quickly. If you are unsure of what type of fencing you need to purchase, give Allstar Fence and Deck a call today with questions! We can be reached at (615) 635-8040.

Why Choose Aluminum Fencing?

Of course when you put up a new fence you are going to want to pick the perfect material for it. This will determine the sturdiness of your fence, how well it will stand up to the elements, and how long it will last. Aluminum fencing can do all that and so much more. Check out a few reasons why you should consider choosing it.

We all know how expensive it is to own a home and to make improvements to it. Aluminum is the most abundant and affordable type of metal out there to use for fencing. While it is more expensive than wood, it will actually end up saving you on costs for repairs and replacement down the road. It's quality fencing that's within your budget.

When it comes to a stylish look and a modern design, aluminum fencing has you covered. It's one of the only materials that can give you such a quality appearance for what it is. The style and the design of your fence is so important not only for you, but for your neighbors and your entire neighborhood.

Another benefit of aluminum fencing is its amazing durability. Wood is of the most popular fencing material choices, but it is really no comparison to aluminum when it comes to durability. Wood requires a lot of upkeep and will not last as long. You will also end up with a lot of pricey repairs, whereas aluminum is solid, won't corrode, and is easier to keep clean.

Contact us today at Allstar Fence & Deck for more information on aluminum fencing and why it's such a popular choice for so many people.

Important Facts and Considerations Before Installing a Privacy Fence (Part 2)

Now, for part two of our series on installing a privacy fence.

Aside from marketability, a privacy fence can also help your home stand out in a crowd once it's time to sell. With hundreds of homes listed at any given time in a particular area, a privacy fence adds appeal to your listing, which other homes simply cannot offer.

It should be noted, however, while a professional will install a fence around any part of your property, it's not always advisable to install a fence in the front yard.

Wooden privacy fencing around the front yard can decrease curb appeal and hide your home from potential buyers. It's always best to consider future buyers even if you have no interest in selling yet.

A privacy fence around a backyard is like adding an extension to your house. A large privacy fence surrounding your property increases your backyard safety, which allows pets and children to enjoy a worry-free backyard adventure and getaway oasis. In fact, home and family security are among the top reasons that people want a fence in the first place.

For those interested in setting up their own backyard sanctuary or vegetable garden, a wooden privacy fence is your new best friend. It can help protect your garden and landscaping efforts from wildlife and prying eyes alike. This extra protection will allow all of your hard work to come to fruition without any fear of destruction from local wildlife.

Join us next time as we cover part three of our privacy fence installation series.

Allstar Fence and Deck has earned the home service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of customer service to members of the local services marketplace and consumer review site in 2016.

This achievement is particularly significant as Angie’s List experienced unprecedented member growth in 2016. More than 1.6 million consumers, many of whom were eager to quickly hire highly qualified service pros, joined Angie’s List after the company added a new, free membership tier.

“Companies that can meet higher demands without missing a beat in their exemplary performance standards truly do stand apart from their peers,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “Only a fraction of the fence and deck companies in Murfeesboro, TN were able to do it.”

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2016 winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade, and review period grade. The SSA winners must also be in good standing with Angie’s List, pass a background check and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.

Service company ratings are updated daily on Angie’s List as new, verified consumer reviews are submitted. Companies are graded on an A through F scale in areas ranging from price to professionalism to punctuality.

For more than 21 years, Angie’s List restricted access to its verified reviews to consumers who paid membership fees. When the company removed that barrier, some companies worried that the new, non-paying members would not be as engaged as members of the past. Experience has shown, however, that these newly added members are just as engaged – across all age groups – as prior members. Also, because the company continues to adhere to its review verification process, there has been no degradation of review quality.

“The biggest change at Angie’s List is that we are connecting even more consumers to high quality service professionals,” Hicks said. “And that’s good for everyone.”


Angie's List helps facilitate happy transactions between more than 4.5 million consumers nationwide and its collection of highly rated service providers in more than 720 categories of service, ranging from home improvement to health care. Built on a foundation of more than 10 million verified reviews of local service, Angie's List connects consumers directly to its online marketplace of services from member-reviewed providers, and offers unique tools and support designed to improve the local service experience for both consumers and service professionals.

The Different Purposes Fences Serve

Most fences are built for a purpose, and you need to really consider what it is that you are trying to achieve as an end result. Maybe you're building a fence as a safe area for your children or pets to play, or maybe it's just a backdrop for your landscaping. Other people build fences for around their pools, or even simply just as a way to provide more privacy and security. No matter what your specific purpose is, it is a worthy investment for your home.

Safe Area 
If you have children or pets, it definitely makes life a lot easier when you can let them outside without having to worry about them escaping from your yard. A fence will provide you with piece of mind knowing that your children and your pets can run and play freely in a closed area.

Whether you have children and pets or not, everybody deserves some privacy. Building a fence can provide you with a sense of security that you just can't get with anything else. It can effectively block neighbors and people passing by from seeing into your yard.

If you have a pool, you may want or need to build a fence around it. This is not only important for safety reasons, but also helps to create a more comfortable and functional pool area overall.

Fences are not always just for security or privacy reasons. Sometimes people build fences solely for decorative purposes. They can make a great backdrop for your landscaping. A fence can make the perfect finishing touch to your yard.
