The size of your fence is calculated in linear feet. To determine the total number of linear feet you need, add the individual parts of your yard together. Your sales rep will also calculate this during your estimate.
Frequently Asked Questions
It is a good idea to know the general location and number of gates you need. Things to keep in mind: lawn movers (width) and access, your traffic flow, use of yard, and any grade changes. Your sales rep will discuss this with you as well.
A plat of survey is a scaled map of a property drafted by a registered land surveyor that shows property boundaries and all of the structures on the property. We will use this to determine where we can install the fence on your property. The plat is typically included with closing documents when you purchase a home.
Your plat of survey may be held by your mortgage company, a government agency that issued a previous building permit, or the land surveyor who prepared it. Check with them to see if they have a copy. If they don't, you may have to contact a surveyor to create a new one since this document is required for your installation.
Most communities require a permit for fence installation. Be sure to check with your city, township, or county for permit requirements, where to apply, approval times, and costs.
Most HOAs will have fence guidelines in their bylaws. You may also need to get the HOA's approval before your fence can be installed.
JULIE stands for Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavators. They locate and mark public utilities such as cable lines, power lines, and gas lines. We follow the markings to do our best to not hit these lines during your installation. State law requires everyone to contact JULIE before any digging project, regardless of the project size or depth. The record should be in the name of the individual or company doing the digging, so you do not need to contact them. Learn more about JULIE.
Private utilities are those that the homeowner has installed. These can include private electrical (to a shed, garage, outdoor lights), sprinkler systems, drain tiles, invisible fences, etc. It is your responsibility to mark their location and they must be marked before our arrival. We follow the markings to do our best to not hit these lines during your installation. If private utilities are not located and marked by the property owner, and we hit them as a result, we are not liable for any damages.
If you are replacing an existing fence, the cost for teardown and haul-away will be included in your estimate.
It is your responsibility to either trim or relocate any plants, trees, shrubs, or flowers that could get damaged during your installation before we arrive.
