Installation

Estimators Visit:  We provide you with a free estimate by a qualified estimator who will help you with the process of the selection and placement of your fence.

  • Walk over the site where the fence will be installed. Be accurate and precise to the estimator of each area the fence will follow.

  • Choose the type and style of fence. The estimator can supply you samples and brochures. Also, check out "Our Portfolio" for pictures of past projects we have done.

  • When a contract is presented to you, read the contract to insure everything you have discussed with the estimator is listed.

    1. Fence-specification of material type, height, footage, color, and style.

    2. Gates-placement, number of gates, width, type, hinges, latches, special features.

    3. Drawing-fence lines are accurately placed and measurements correct.

    4. Special-if any old fences are to be torn down/hauled away.

    5. Price-correct price and down payment. 

Office:  When your signed contract and down payment is received it will be processed. It will be dated and numbered. Every effort is used to install each job in order they are processed. The materials you have selected for your fence can determine when installation will begin, We will make all efforts to meet any deadlines you need to meet (such as the case of installation of a new pool).

  • All materials will be ordered if they are not in stock. We keep most chain link and split rail wood on stock.  All other wood takes typically 1 to 2 weeks to get in.  Vinyl fence takes 1 1/2 to 3 weeks and aluminum fence is 2 1/2 to 4 weeks depending on the time of year and how custom your fence is.

  • A crew will be assigned to install your fence once all materials are in stock.

  • PA One Call will be called a min of 3 working days before the installer will begin the installation.

  • The office staff will assist you and try to answer any questions you may have on your fence contract.

  • Any warrantees on your materials will be issued to you upon completion of the fence. The labor warranty on fencing, railing and decking is one year. Gate operators see specific.

Installation Crew:  An installation crew will call to schedule an installation  date.

  • Make sure all the fence lines are clear (i.e. wood piles, old fence, swing sets, sheds, vegetation, etc.).

  • Meet with the installer to show placement of fence, gates and unusual circumstances. Verify the contract measurements with your installer. This is a very critical point. Most problems that occur are due to improper communication between the home owner and the installer. So take the time and make sure that you are both on the same page.

  • Show any underground utilities not marked by the utility company.

  • Show installer locations of water and electric, if needed.

  • Show installer where to place the leftover dirt from excavated holes.

  • Arrange to meet the installer at the completion time to inspect the finished job, and the final payment.
