Residential Fence FAQs

Prices depend on the material you choose and the exact style you order. We provide quotes for free! E-Mail us or give us a call and our team of friendly, experienced staff will be glad to walk you through the process and plan a consultation.


Important!

We encourage you to speak with one of our fence experts before focusing solely on price! There are cheaper, inferior-quality fence materials available that will only last for a while. We don't use them. There are also very inexperienced and unprofessional fence installers who continually cut corners and don't stand behind their work, regardless of their so-called warranty.

Fences must stand up to Green Bay and Appleton high winds, harsh weather, and physical abuse from animals, kids, gardeners, and neighbors. Shopping for the cheapest fence is generally not the best way to choose the fence you want to protect and beautify your home and the people you care about.

We understand that homeowners in Green Bay and Appleton want a great fence and want to get it quickly! Generally, it only takes a few days maximum for one of our fence experts to get to most areas of Green Bay and Appleton, walk your property, and give you a detailed estimate of your entire residential fence project.

Once you approve the estimate, we can often install residential fences in most of Green Bay and Appleton within 1 to 3 weeks, but please check with our office about your specific project. At times throughout the year, that timeframe may be less, or it may be longer.

Other things can delay the start of a fencing project. If you choose custom fence material, style, color, or add-ons that must be specially ordered, your fence installation will often be delayed. These materials come from various manufacturers, and shipping and delivery times are beyond our control. We will help you identify, in advance, any of your choices that are likely to cause these additional delays, and we will offer alternatives whenever possible.

DIY Fence Estimate

If you'd like to get a rough idea on your own about how much fencing you will need, follow these easy steps:

  • If you know the dimensions of the area you wish to enclose, add the length of each side together. Use a tape measure. Rough estimates are fine; there is no need to be too precise.
  • Be sure to subtract the length of any structures, like a house, a barn, or a shed, that will serve as part of the barrier. This will give you a rough estimate of how much fencing you need.
  • For even greater accuracy, subtract the length of any gates you will be using. Often, gates are priced much differently than fencing. For this reason, we recommend that property owners looking to develop their fence estimate list the gates separately. A standard walk gate is approximately 4 feet wide, and a standard single driveway gate is closer to 10 feet wide.

Caution!

Fencing is often priced and sold by SECTIONS, not by linear feet! Even when the linear footage is included specifically in price estimates, the total number of sections is a factor in this pricing. So, price per linear foot is only a rough estimate and rarely represents the actual cost of the finished fence!

If you would love to explore and explain this difference, you can speak with one of our fence experts. Be aware that price per linear foot is a ploy many unprofessional fence installers in the Green Bay and Appleton area use!

Fencing is one of the most accessible industries for start-up businesses and novice laborers to get into. For these people looking to make a few extra dollars installing fences, a shovel, a level, and a string line may be all they need.

As a result, there are many individuals or companies who show up in Green Bay and Appleton, install commercial fences for a short time, and then disappear. We see it all the time. Beware! You only want to work with a fully licensed and insured fencing contractor in Green Bay and Appleton.

Here are some of the main pitfalls of working with non-professionals:

  1. The Commercial Fence Warranty is Void
    If the individual or company that installed your commercial fence is no longer in business, the workmanship warranty on the fence and the gates is worthless. Additionally, some manufacturers won't warranty their fence material if it was improperly installed or damaged during installation. Both situations are common with non-professionals.

  2. The Fence Almost Certainly Won't Last As Long
    As a professional fence company, our team of installers undergoes rigorous training and constant professional supervision. Our dedication to improving our skills, knowledge of the best fencing materials, and best fence installation techniques maximizes the strength and life of your fence. Companies that install fences as something they do "on the side" usually have no idea how much they don't know about commercial fencing or what is best for you and your property.

  3. Your Property May be at Risk
    Installing residential fences in the Green Bay and Appleton area can be risky. Sudden, harsh weather during the fence installation can blow materials and damage your home. We've seen concrete splatter onto cars or drip down beautiful driveways or walkways as buckets of wet concrete are transported. Deep tire tracks sinking into your grass is another common issue. The secondary damage to homes and yards is common when untrained labor installs the fence.

    Additionally, you are at risk if anyone gets hurt on your property while they are working. If you hire an unlicensed or uninsured contractor, you may be liable and your insurance may deny payment!

At first glance, hiring a novice to install your fence may save you a few dollars, but in the long run, it is almost certainly a price you cannot afford to pay!

Gate FAQs

There are many benefits to installing a gate on your property, including increased security, privacy, and curb appeal. A gate can help deter intruders and unwanted visitors, as well as provide a barrier to keep children and pets safely contained. It can also enhance the aesthetics of your property and add value to your home.

Many of our residential clients choose to have more than one gate for various reasons. You may want to consider more than one gate to allow for extra access points to your property, or you might also need a separate, wider entry point for automobiles, recreational vehicles, access for lawn care equipment, or leisure activities.

The price of gates is highly variable, depending on the material you select and the scope of your project. Fortunately, our team of friendly gate experts is available to provide free estimates for all of your gate projects! Even before providing an estimate, our experts are available to answer any questions you may have about the gate design or installation process.

After you reach out to our team, one of our members will contact you and schedule a time for an estimate. Once we design your dream gate and settle on a plan, we can work on sourcing our gate materials and preparing for installation! Unfortunately, some variables are out of our control, which can delay your gate installation. We have a team of dedicated, helpful staff who are available to guide you through the installation process and advise you of any delays.

We offer several types of commercial gates, including swing gates, sliding gates, vertical pivot gates, and vertical lift gates. Swing gates open inward or outward like a door, sliding gates move horizontally along a track, and vertical lift gates rise vertically. Each type has its advantages and suitability based on your specific needs and available space.

The regulations and permit requirements for installing commercial gates may vary depending on local building codes, zoning ordinances, and any applicable industry-specific regulations. It's important to check with the local authorities to ensure compliance with all necessary permits and regulations.

Aluminum Fence FAQs

Yes! We are a leading aluminum fencing contractor across the entire Green Bay and Appleton area.

Our crews are specially trained in the latest aluminum fence installation techniques, ensuring that your fence will look great, function properly, and hold up to the harsh weather typical of Green Bay and Appleton.

Aluminum fences require very little maintenance. Aluminum is naturally rust and corrosion-resistant. In addition, our professional-quality aluminum fencing has been factory-treated, further preventing rust and corrosion while resisting color fading and dull finish issues that are more common with lower-quality aluminum fencing.

For this reason, an occasional rinse with a water hose, a gentle, non-abrasive home cleaner, and a sponge should be sufficient. Apart from that, you should not need to do anything except enjoy your beautiful aluminum fence!

Make it Easy on Yourself!

Don't stress yourself! Our fence experts will gladly come to your property and take all necessary measurements! We are a full-service fence company that specializes in aluminum fence installation. You do not need to work hard to get a great new fence.

Many small fence companies in Green Bay and Appleton install aluminum fencing. Very few specifically train their teams on the best installation techniques and practices for aluminum fencing. Unfortunately, this means that your aluminum fence is probably not installed as securely as it could be, which ultimately can reduce the quality and lifespan of your aluminum fence.

Using inferior installation techniques and improper tools can also damage the aluminum fence during installation, which may have the unfortunate impact of voiding the manufacturer's warranty since you chose an unqualified contractor not approved by the manufacturer.

It is a very strong material that creates a high level of security with an unmatched elegant design.

The overall strength of ornamental steel fences in North Wisconsin varies based on the thickness of the fence posts and pickets as well as the post depth and fence height.
