Since we are located in Spring we mostly cover all of Greater North Houston such as Tomball, Spring, Conroe, The Woodlands, Magnolia, Montgomery, Hockley, Waller, & Cypress. Exceptions can be made depending on our schedule. Please give us a call and we’ll see what we can do!
Yes, we install both commercial & residential fencing.
The process varies slightly from customer to customer but follows this general pattern:
1. Discuss project details and get your pricing asap.
2. If you decide to move forward we will get a signed agreement in place and collect a 50% down deposit. This will also apply if you receive financing.
3. We will put in a request with Texas 811 to get public underground utilities such as gas, electric, and internet lines marked with flags and marking paint.
4. Order and arrange materials to be ready.*
5. Schedule the installation with you.
6. Meet our crew on site the first day to get every detail lined out before they begin the installation. Should you have any questions during the installation you will have your project manager's cell phone number for immediate contact.
7. Upon completion of the install we will settle up for the remaining balance.
*Lead times vary depending on the type of fencing you choose. Some options may require a special order and lead times up to several weeks. We will let you know upfront if there is a lead time or not
50% down payment with a signed agreement. Remaining 50% balance is due upon completion. 50% deposit is required before any material is ordered or the installation is put on our schedule.
Yes, we request Texas 811 to mark for public underground utilities such as gas, electric, & internet lines. It's not just for safety's sake - we are obligated by law to do so. It usually takes 48-72 business hours to be marked with flags and marking paint and will require the locators having access to the property (gates unlocked and animals under control). Texas 811 does not mark for anything private such as sprinklers, pool lines, septic tanks, propane, etc. We ask that you point out to us anything underground that you are aware of so that we can do our best to avoid any damage. Safety is our top priority.
We will gladly help answer any questions you may have and fill out anything the contractor is required to fill out on the application. However, we ask that homeowners be responsible for retrieving your own HOA's guidelines and application and also be the one to submit it to your HOA. We are happy to assist in any way possible. Permits beyond standard HOA approval are not usually required for the majority of fence projects.
If you are replacing an existing fence line this is likely to be irrelevant because we will put the new fence on the same exact line as the previous one (especially for neighborhood privacy fences). But if you are installing a new fence and not replacing an existing one, we will need to establish property lines. If you provide us a copy of your survey that shows property pins/corners and the survey is to scale with some measurements, we can find the pins and establish the property lines the majority of the time. However, we are not always a substitute for a surveying company. If property lines and/or corners are inaccessible and we are unable to locate the pins ourselves it will be your responsibility to find them or hire a surveying company to find them.
Yes, we set all posts underground in concrete unless we are flanging on top of pavement with a plate and anchor bolts.
We use quick set concrete that is cured within an hour. If it's a 1 day project we will do the entire fence on the same day. If it is a multi-day project we usually only have time to set posts on the first day so it will sit overnight [but not because it needs to sit overnight]. The one exception is for large swing gates. We prefer to let those hinge posts sit overnight just to be on the safer side due to the high amount of torque on the post.
Yes and no. For end posts and corner posts we do a full dig out and set the post in the same place so that we are not changing up the direction of the fence lines themselves. For line posts (posts between ends and corners) we set a new pattern and dig new holes. We cut the old ones at ground level and tamp them underground. It's not just to be efficient on time and cost but to also have control on the shape of the new post holes and to have consistent centers from post to post. We will NOT do full digouts for line posts and put them in the same holes as the previous ones. Not only does it ultimately make the project more complicated and costly, it could easily sacrifice the integrity of the new fence since we cannot control the shape of the holes after we dig them out.
Dirt from the holes that are dug to set the posts will be spread out along the ground/base of the fence. Dirt from holes will not be loaded up nor hauled away unless expressly agreed on for an additional cost.
Multi-neighbor jobs can get chaotic when there isn't somebody spearheading the process. We recommend someone take on the leadership role of the group so that it's easier for group discussion to take place about what you would like to do and how you would like to do it. We will provide 1 overall estimate as well as a layout drawing that breaks down the costs per section and copy/email all the neighbors on the same information. All neighbors that want to proceed will be required to sign the agreement for their respective portions before any scheduling takes place. At the end we will send out individual invoices to each neighbor and collect from each directly.
Yes, we honor a 1 year workmanship warranty on installation. This has to do with the quality of workmanship itself. We do not offer any supplemental warranty for material-related issues other than what the manufacturer/supplier may offer.
Since we are an installation contractor we only quote turnkey projects where we provide both materials and labor. We do not sell materials only, labor only, nor break out those respective costs.
Generally speaking, we do not - we are best set up for new installations or full replacements. However, we are happy to look over any pictures and information you provide to us and we'll make a case by case determination on that.
The most durable type of privacy fence is either heavy-duty galvanized steel posts and stained wood or vinyl privacy fencing.
We only do projects where we provide turnkey installation by purchasing the materials from our trusted vendors in the industry. In other words, we are not just labor for hire and will only use materials we purchase.
The best fence for windy areas are fences that are ultimately breathable such as chain link fencing, iron fencing, horse fencing, and ranch rail fencing.
The best kind of fence for property value is a long-lasting quality fence that is also visually appealing that can register into actual cash value on appraisals. Aside from what can be transferred in actual $ value to future buyers of the property, value is a purely subjective thing.
Wrought iron fences are not all created equal. There is "pre-fab" fencing that is powder-coated and maintenance-free. The expected lifetime on that varies depending on the quality of the steel if it's galvanized, and how the priming and powder coating process is controlled. There are cheaper import options as well as more expensive domestic higher quality products. Then there is primed and painted wrought iron. Ultimately it's a different finish by being painted instead of powder-coated. The advantage is that can last almost a lifetime if maintained properly. The disadvantage is that takes maintenance and requires a properly done re-finishing/re-painting job every few years.
The best fence to keep dogs contained depends on the type of property you are on. If you are in a suburban setting, cedar privacy fencing is most common and can easily contain dogs if built correctly. If you are in a more rural/farm setting, a ranch-style fence with welded wire or chain link fence will be more cost-effective. However, chain link is not always the best solution, especially for smaller dogs. With smaller dogs, it's best to have a board along the ground so they will not escape.
Privacy fencing such as cedar privacy fencing and vinyl privacy fencing is best for noise reduction. Chain link with vinyl slats will reduce noise some but not enough to be used for the purpose of noise reduction.
