Fencing Company

Introduction to fences

Fences are an upright, architectural structure that is typically made from wood or wire that encloses a certain area. The designated and closed off area is meant to prevent escaping and prohibit trespassers from entering. Homeowners enjoy fencing because it gives them more control and a sense of security. It also establishes clear boundary lines between neighbors, so there is no confusion. LimakWay can custom design fences to provide homeowners an established and private area right in the comfort of their own backyard.

What are some fence installation costs?

Before our contractors can start building, they will provide you an estimation of total costs for your fence. As a general rule of thumb, LimakWay’s costs include the following:

  • Materials – LimakWay will purchase the proper materials and parts to construct your fence. You will be charged later for the items purchased. Depending on what materials are bought will affect how costly this project will be.
  • Permits – Many cities require permits to be obtained before breaking ground. Research your city’s regulations and see what is required from you in order to receive a permit. Typically, they request the dimensions of the space, materials to be used, total projected costs and other factors.
  • Utilities – Our contractors will assess your yard to make sure where they dig does not interfere with any utility wires or pipes. We will do our best to work around these obstacles, so you won’t have to deal with any costly repairs.
  • Grading – If your property’s land is uneven or slopped, this can make fence installation a little more difficult. Therefore, there is a possibility of a higher installation cost to build the fence.
  • Labor – Work and labor costs will also be bundled into the total expense of building your fence. This will include a specific charge per linear foot of materials used and overall complexity of the project.
  • Property size – Our contractors will measure your property’s dimensions to accurately estimate the quantity of materials needed to complete the project. Straightforwardly, the bigger the property, the more materials needed, therefore, the more expensive the project will be.
  • Fence height – Most commonly, fences are around six feet in height. Six feet is the perfect height for your privacy needs, without overbearing you or your neighbors. Our contractors will factor in the desired height in correlation with the material used to project an estimated cost.

Comparing materials

As mentioned before, the materials used to construct this project will directly affect the out-of-pocket expense. Here, we will discuss and compare the most popular materials used for fence construction.
Majority of homeowners will choose either metal, wood, vinyl or aluminum as their fencing material. Each material offers a different set of pros and cons, as well as projected costs. Below is a chart of the materials and their estimated costs.

Material used Fence cost per linear foot Labor cost per linear foot
Metal $7 $10
Wood $12 $12
Vinyl $17 $7
Aluminium $26 10+

Metal fences

Metal fencing provides homeowners a simplistic solution to their fencing needs. It is a basic and affordable option that also has a long lifespan and requires minimal maintenance work. It is easiest material to install and has a different appeal than traditional wooden fences.

This project can cost between $1,100 and $2,300.

Wood fences

Wood fencing is the most common material used to construct a fence. It provides the most security and privacy compared to other materials. However, the type of wood used will determine how expensive the project will be. Depending on your property size, budget and vision you had in mind can help you decide what kind of wood you should use.

Some popular options include a basic plank material, which is the most inexpensive type of wood there is. If you are looking for a wood that looks the best and you don’t mind the cost, then redwood is the best choice. Another attractive option homeowners love is cedar wood. It looks great, but the expense can add up quickly depending on how much material is needed.

This project can cost between $1,500 and $3,500.

Vinyl fences

Vinyl fencing is a unique option and provides several benefits, for example, it has a different look compared to a traditional wooden or metal fence. Vinyl fences also gives homeowners the option to choose a more fun color. Homeowners can playfully match their vinyl fence with the exterior of their home. Lastly, vinyl fences require little maintenance. Simply, homeowners can hose down the fence to remove any accumulated debris or grime to restore its original look.

This project can cost between $2,000 and $5,000.

Aluminum fences

Aluminum fences are the most expensive kinds of fences, but the overall quality is worth the cost. This type of material requires little maintenance work and is not subject to rust over time. Many homeowners like to install aluminum fencing around their swimming pools to optimize safety conditions.

This project can cost between $2,000 and $5,000.

How long will this process take?

This ultimately depends on how big the job is. Before our contractors can project an estimated finished date, they will measure your property’s dimensions, gather the needed materials and obtain required permits in order to build. Aside from these logistics, our contractors can finish the job between one to three days. We can assure you the final outcome of this project will be completed with high-quality materials and a hard work ethic.
