In general, the usual time it may take before a fence is installed is either two to four weeks, or five to six weeks. The shortest time possible which is two to four weeks is possible when no fabrication of metals is required. In addition, if no difficult permits are required, this is the common time frame. In contrast, fence installation projects that necessitate metal fabrication as well as many complex permits will take five to six weeks before installation can ensue. Therefore, the metal type fences like steel or aluminum may fall into the five to six weeks range due to fabrication needs.
The standard fence installation process done by our team takes about a week. The work week is composed of about two to three working days, separated by a few non-working days. A few days are allotted in between the working days to allow settling and curing of certain materials as part of the fence installation process. It necessary to allow some time for materials like cement to dry up properly before proceeding to the next steps in the fence installation process. However, this time frame may be extended by two to three weeks for projects that need extensive customization, or for larger projects.

Legal restrictions significantly vary from one area to another. Therefore, it is difficult to respond to this question with a just a “yes” or a “no.” There may be certain fence restrictions applicable only to your area. This may happen if there are zoning ordinances in place in your neighborhood. A zoning ordinance may have prohibitions on certain attributes of your fence, such as its height. Also, some local neighborhood associations restrict fence colors and designs for uniformity reasons. We recommend that you verify whether there are restrictions like this in your area before deciding on the specifics of your fence.
Technically, there is usually no legal obligation for you to consult with your neighbors. Unless your local neighborhood association requires you to, this is usually not required. But then, as you live in close proximity and share common spaces with your neighbors, we strongly suggest that you at least notify or inform them about your projects. By doing so, they will not be too bothered by the commotion which may be caused by the installation activities since they know what is going on. Moreover, notifying them can help keep them and their family members safe. Always consider informing your neighbors even if it is not required.
Three feet is the typical minimum required depth as far as fence posts are concerned. However, there may still be difference and variations during the actual installation process itself. The exact measurement when it comes to depth would also depend on the fence type, type of materials used, and possibly, the characteristics of the soil in your area. Taller fences may require deeper posts to make sure that they can stand sturdily and correctly. However, you do not need to be very much concerned about the fence posts depth since our team of experts can manage this task for you.
For most circumstances, the answer is no, the fence should NOT touch the ground. The reason for this is straightforward. Direct contact with the ground puts your fence at risk of considerable moisture-related damage. Because soil is usually wet, water may come in contact with your fence and cause water damage. Certain materials are more susceptible to this type of damage. An example is wood. However, in some situations, a fence with no gaps at the bottom is preferable. This is important for people who want to keep small animals completely away from their property. Hence, rodents or frogs cannot enter.
Yes, certain weather conditions may affect the fence installation process. To help protect your projects, we at the Amarillo Fence Company carefully plans every step of the preparation and planning process for every fence installation project. Even if the weather is not something we can control and predict, local weather reports may help our planning crew anticipate such conditions so that our team is always ready and prepared for these situations. Our experienced crew will know whether the project may be temporarily put on hold to prevent any damage from heavy downpours. Despite a little delay, we see to it that your project is still completed on time.
Your specific needs and preferences regarding function and appearance will help determine the fence type most suitable for your project. We recommend evaluating and assessing your own requirements and inclinations when it comes to fences so that we can help you decide. You must consider your main concerns and priorities. For example, do you give much importance to privacy? If so, you must consider a fence that offers gapless options such as wood or vinyl. Is security your main concern? If yes, then you should put tough and durable materials like the metals steel and aluminum fences in your options.
There are two major considerations that may determine the height of your fence project. First are your preferences, specifically your priorities for privacy. If this is your main concern, a tall fence would be best for you to conceal your space from people on the outside. Second, there may be restrictions in your area that prohibit you from building a fence of certain height. Therefore, it is important to check if there are limitations like this so that you can plan your projects better. It is also good to know that certain fence types like back stops are really meant to be very tall.
First and foremost, the material that was used for the fence is one of the most important factors which can determine how long your fence will last. There is no questioning the fact that some materials are just more durable and long-lasting than others. To illustrate, aluminum and vinyl are materials that can last for years, and even decades. However, some materials can last longer only if proper maintenance is done. A good example for this is wood. If wooden fences are consistently repainted yearly and given proper treatment against insects and bugs, they can last longer than they are expected to.
