Fence Building Company

Wood

Wood fences are the most popular type of fence, and they make up the majority of the work we do. Fences made from wood are environmentally friendly, easy to repair, and relatively cheap compared to their counterparts. They do need more care than those made of aluminum or vinyl, including staining and clear coats, but their price point keeps them at the head of the pack. It’s no wonder that wood fences dominate neighborhoods and urban settings.

Vinyl

A vinyl fence is constructed from a type of plastic called PVC (polyvinyl chloride). This PVC material is combined with certain chemical components to give the fence outstanding strength, long-term durability, and protection from the elements. Since the fence is manufactured from PVC or similar materials, vinyl fences come in a staggering array of colors. Vinyl can be a low-maintenance option when compared to other fencing materials, but the initial costs are high.

Wrought Iron

These fences are constructed of wrought iron, which is an extremely durable material. Wrought iron fences are able to hold up to a lot of pressure while still needing minimal upkeep. Iron will rust, so any portions of the fence that are scraped or scuffed should be primed and painted quickly. Although they don’t provide much in the way of privacy, their attractive look and longevity make them a good selection for numerous applications.

Chain Link

Chain link fencing is a great option to prevent pets, children, animals and unwelcome visitors from entering a yard, but it is generally not thought of as attractive like wrought iron or some wood fences. This type of fence is comprised of galvanized steel posts that sit at regular intervals, rails that typically run on the top and sometimes bottom of the fence, and mesh fencing. Installing is not a hard job, but the parts are all fairly heavy and not easy to get into place. Since chain-link fences can be tough to install, most homeowners will opt to hire a professional fence company. On its own, chain link does not provide much privacy, but homeowners can add privacy slats made from aluminum or plastic if desired. These slats are interwoven into the chain link to reduce the line-of-site.

Split-Rail Fences

Chances are, whether you know it or not, you’ve come across a split-rail fence at some point. Commonly found in rural areas, these fences are constructed from simple rough-sawn planks or split lumber (hence the name “split rail”), and their design has roots dating back to early colonial times. Displaying a distinctive rustic and straightforward appearance, split-rail fences offer a natural and beautiful option for those seeking an unassuming fencing solution.

A repair is usually less expensive and faster than a full replacement.

But how do you know if you need a repair or a replacement? Call Longview Fence Company!

Our experienced East Texas fence company crew has over a decade of experience installing and repairing fences. One of our knowledgeable team members can come by for a free consultation. We’ll determine the issues you’re having, the likelihood of additional issues coming up soon, and assess the lifespan of your current fence. Armed with this information, you’ll have a much easier time deciding on the route you’d like to pursue.

Why You Should Replace Your Fence

privacy-fence

Safety: Fences are typically installed to keep children, dogs, cats, or horses from running off, injuring themselves, or getting lost. You might also be worried about your loved ones and pets falling into things like lakes, ponds, streams, and rivers. A fence keeps loved ones and pets inside the yard, where they belong.

Security: A fence can also keep strangers from gaining access to your property. Whether it’s a person intentionally sneaking in to commit a crime, someone trespassing unintentionally, or maybe just an animal wandering through looking at your property and turning your garden into a buffet, keeping unwanted guests out of a yard is easy with the correct fence in place.

Privacy: Most of us look at our yard as an extension of our home. On those beautiful Texas days, we can’t wait to get outside to BBQ, host pool parties, eat on the patio, and entertain our guests and families in our yards. No one ruins an outdoor event as quickly as a nosy neighbor. Keep those prying eyes out with a new fence.

Boundaries: Fences can also clearly communicate boundaries. By installing a fence, you let others know that there is a clear demarcation point between your property and the next.

Keeping Sights and Sounds Out: A privacy fence can provide a certain level of noise abatement and also provide some respite from looking at the neighbor’s yard. If you’ve got a noisy or messy neighbor, we recommend a new privacy fence and possibly some strategically positioned trees or shrubs.

Curb Appeal: Last but not least, is curb appeal. The difference between an old, faded fence and a new one is striking. Replacing an old fence can dramatically increase the look of your home and even increase its value. Some communities with HOA’s may have rules in place for when you need to repair or replace a fence. Not complying with these rules can have negative consequences.

What Past Customers Are Saying

When we hired Longview Fence Company to replace our home fence, we were very impressed with how well they did their job. They did great work and gave us the best price. From the beginning, LFC was very different from the other companies in terms of customer service. Their attention to detail was impressive, and it was reflected in their work. I never imagined that I would say that about a fence, but the more I look at it, the more I like it. The total cost of the job was the lowest of the four bids I received. I cannot say enough good things about Longview Fence Company!

Longview Fence Company turned my dream of a composite deck into a reality that exceeded my expectations. The crew showed up on time, cleaned up every night before they left, and even brought my dog treats. I highly recommend Longview Fence Company for their outstanding results and commitment to excellence. Thanks to the entire team for making my outdoor living space an amazing place to relax.

The length of the fence and the kind of fence that is being placed both play a role in determining how much time is needed to complete the installation. The installation time of a typical vinyl or wooden fence that is about 150 linear feet long should take between one and three days, provided that the weather is favorable. This number also depends on how large or small our crew is for that day.
Wood, metal, and vinyl are some of the materials that may be used to construct fences. Wooden fences are normally erected one board at a time and can be fashioned from a wide range of wooden species. Many vinyl fences are prefabricated and put in sections or panels rather than using individual boards. This saves time and money. It is possible to purchase fences made of metals such as aluminum or steel in the form of chain-link fences or metal panels. Chain link fences are typically installed more quickly than other types of fencing because a single roll of chain link can cover a significant portion of the area being fenced in. If you need help deciding or want to go over the pros and cons of each type of fence for your specific yard, call us and make a consultation appointment. We'd be happy to come out and go over some ideas with you.
We'll construct your fence according to the specifications outlined for each type of fence (i.e., different types of fences require different post depths and spans). Even though the precise distance might change in conjunction with the height of your fence, we must dig fence post holes that are at least three feet deep, and for taller fences, we should dig holes that are even deeper than that. The postholes must be wide enough so that they have ample room for concrete to support the posts; however, the exact measurements will depend on the type of fence and it's overall height. This is vital for posts that will be used to support a gate, since it is possible that an extra support post will need to be built beside the primary post, and the concrete will assist in keeping both posts in their designated locations.
The short answer is yes. Although, in almost all cases, your property is yours and you don't need to ask anyone's opinion, it's always a good idea to at least inform your neighbor of your plans and let them know when you intend to have the work done. If any of your neighbors have pets or livestock, you owe it to them to inform them about the upcoming construction so that they can take the necessary precautions to ensure the wellbeing of their animals. Furthermore, if your neighbors intend to contribute to the fence or pay a portion of the cost of installation, you might want to tell them so they can get their funds together. It is possible that you will be required to give your neighbors early notice as a result of local legislation or the requirements of your homeowner's organization. Most importantly, though, this is East Texas, and we're always friendly to our neighbors.
That depends. If you live in an HOA community, they likely have restrictions on the type of fence you can have installed, and probably the color and height too. Before you can dig holes for your fence posts, you are required by law in most populated areas to contact local utility companies or the one-call service in your state in order to schedule a survey of your property in order to mark any buried utility lines. This is the case, even though this is not exactly a restriction. When we come to build your fence on your property, we make an effort to collect that information. It's safer for our employees as well.
In most circumstances, the only parts of your fence that should be in contact with the ground are the fence posts. It is more difficult to maintain your yard when your fence is allowed to touch the ground, and depending on the material used to construct your fence, it may also increase the rate at which it suffers damage from moisture more quickly. Wood fences, for example, should not touch the ground, as they'll rot much faster than if they did not. There are, without a doubt, some notable exceptions to this rule. It is possible that you may want your fence to extend all the way to the ground if you are erecting it for the purpose of excluding rats and other small animals from a garden or other area. It is also helpful if you are attempting to contain small-breed dogs or other animals that might be able to burrow beneath a fence that isn't anchored to the ground in order to escape your yard. Chain-link fences are a great example of a fence that will likely touch the ground when it's installed.
It's possible that the installation of your fence may be affected by inclement weather. If it is raining or the humidity is high, we may have trouble getting the concrete to set while installing fence posts. Temperatures that are either too high or too low can not only cause problems with the concrete, but they can also cause your fence materials to swell or contract. If it is raining or the humidity is high, you may have trouble getting the concrete to set while installing fence posts. We will make every effort to build your fence on a sunny day when there is no chance of precipitation for the following few days.
It all depends on what you're putting the fence up for. A fence that is intended to contain small-breed dogs, other small pets, and children may only require a height of 4 feet, but a fence that is intended to provide privacy or that is intended to hold large-breed dogs may require a height of six feet, eight feet, or more. The height of a security fence may range anywhere from 5 to 7 feet, whereas the height of a decorative fence is often between 3 and 4 feet. If you are unclear about how to go with this choice, call us for a free consultation.
The material that a fence is made of, as well as any preventative maintenance that is performed on it after it is built, will determine how long it will last once it is in place. Wood fences may require annual painting or sealing and may require repairs before 10 years have passed; however, vinyl and aluminum fences can survive for decades with minimum maintenance required on their part. Even though using treated timber can extend the life of wooden fences, they will still need regular care to avoid damage from animals, insects, and the elements.
Generally speaking, the person who's property has a fence on it would be the owner, but things aren't that simple. This is a fairly common dispute and can make fence replacement complicated. Texas state law does not have a specific law that focuses on this subject, so generally, the property owner is in charge. The best way to avoid these situations is to speak with your neighbors if possible.
Some fences, like wood, have two sides: the finished side and the side with the posts. Generally speaking, you want to point the finished side to your neighbors. This is common for two reasons: First, it's polite. Secondly, if you point the post side towards the neighbor, it will look like your fence is backwards. This isn't always the case, however. As with a lot of things fence-related, it all depends on the specific yard.
Absolutely! Those springtime straight-line winds are no joke. If you don't dig the fence posts deep enough and set them with concrete, your new fence will be on the ground in no time. This also holds true for mailboxes and basketball hoops. Call Longview Fence Company today for a free consultation.
