Frequently Asked Questions
The cost of a fence depends upon several factors. The main determining factors consist of what type of fence material is selected, the style of fence being built, what type and how many gates are installed, and, of course, how many linear feet of fence is required. (Linear footage is calculated by measuring the perimeter of the area that the fence will be built on.) For privacy fences, pressure-treated pine is the most economical material choice.
Want to get a better idea of fence cost? Use our virtual fence designer. It uses satellite imagery to display a birds-eye-view of your yard and allows you to easily trace where you’d like your fence installed. Draw directly on a Google map, select fence choices, select gates, and get an INSTANT PRICE ESTIMATE.
When your backyard backs up against your neighbor’s yard, you’ll want a privacy fence with a height that gives you the most privacy. Usually, this can be accomplished with a 6ft height. But Fence King can do height transitions that work between 6ft and 8ft in order to give you more privacy or more view depending on your preferences.
If your backyard does not back up against a neighbor, but to a green space or pond, our aluminum fence is a popular choice. You can use our Aluminum Fence Design Studio to get a virtual preview of the fence in your yard. Simply upload a picture of your yard from the outside facing your home, upload the image to the design studio, and select your metal fence for a virtual preview.
The turnaround time for fence installation depends on several factors that include type of fence, length of the fence to be installed, and site conditions. Project time would also be affected by the removal of any existing fence if required. Usually, a Fence King installation takes 2 days here on the Northshore. If we’re also removing an old fence, the total time would be 3 to 4 days. Please ask your Fence King sales representative for scheduling details.
Fence King is the ONLY fence contractor that attaches your warranty directly to your fence. Our wood fences come with a ONE YEAR WARRANTY that covers the exchange of the faulty product. Please see the Fence King Wooden Fence Warranty for complete details.
Aluminum fences come with a LIFETIME WARRANTY through Aluminum Fence Supply. Please see the Aluminum Fence Supply warranty for complete details.
The land rights may vary in your area. So, it may be necessary to check with your local Tax Assessors office where you can get the actual parcel/land dimensions. However, the ownership of an existing fence is typically the same owner of the land for which the fence is installed upon. Fence King does not conduct any property surveys nor do we imply property lines. If there is an existing fence, you should check with your neighbors to be certain the fence is yours. A survey company can mark your property lines for a fee.
When fences are installed using pre-fabricated panels, fencing slopes and irregular ground levels can be difficult to properly fence. You will usually get large gaps at the bottom areas and uneven capping.
Fence King does NOT use pre-fabricated fence panels. We build custom fences. Custom fences (or stick-built fences) allow us to better follow the lay-of-the-land (topography) and gives a much smoother transition. We can include custom transitions as an upgrade to your fence installation.
