Is there any height limit for a fence? If yes, what is it?

Yes. There are some strict rules to look up to before carrying your fencing venture forward. First off, figure out what sort of things are legitimate in your area. You can do this by contacting the local authority planning office.

Coming to your second question, most fencing laws limit the height of fences to 4 feet in front yards and 6 feet in backyards.

Who is responsible to repair the fence between two properties?

Basically, state laws direct responsibility of maintenance (including repairing) of fences on the owners that use the fence. Since both parties benefit from the boundary fence, it’s the responsibility of the both parties to look after it. During the process, they must also share the cost of repairing. Denial of the sharing by the neighbor leads to further course of action.

  • Prepare a letter explaining the fence problems and give it to the neighbor.
  • Repair the fence and write a demand letter that requests payment from the neighbor.
  • Go to mediation.
  • If state laws provide a provision, asks for a fence viewer and make a recommendation of whether the fence requires repair or whether the amount requested for repair is reasonable.
  • If the neighbor still overlooks the issue, sue him for reimbursement.

How much time does Minehill Fence Builders take to install my fence? Can it be completed within a day?

Not possible generally. Since wood and chain link fences require post to be set in wet cement, it takes almost seven days or so to cure. However, if you are looking for Ornamental fence installation then we can complete it even on a single day.

Do I need to be home during my fence installation?

Better, if you could afford staying at home. This way, you can review our fence builders and assist them with the required materials – providing water, electricity and the like.

How long does a typical wood fence last?

Your wooden fence relies on many factors - weather, geographic location, sun exposure, insect population. Similarly, the life expectancy of your fence hugely depends on the wood you have chosen. As a matter of fact, Spruce fences can last up to twelve years while cedar fences can last almost twice as long.

During extreme weather conditions, keep an eye on your wood fence and make sure different natural elements aren’t hampering the life expectancy of your valuable investment.

Why should I opt for a vinyl fence?

Even though vinyl fence requires a bit more dough upfront, it doesn’t require much repairing and maintenance cost (unlike wood fences) through the years.

First and foremost, vinyl fence provides a pleasant visual appeal for ages. It is an environmentally safe material with no toxins to pollute your surroundings. Vinyl fences have a smooth surface without any nails, splinters or sharp edges.

Could you tell me how much does each type of fencing cost?

The price of the fence depends on the type of fencing material. Here is a glance-view of some of them.

Wood Fences: $13 - $19 per linear foot

Vinyl Fences: Around $25 per linear foot

Wrought iron fence: Around $22 per linear foot (for residential grade at 6’ height) and $14 per linear foot (for residential grade at 3’hegiht)

Aluminum fences: $24 - $32 per linear foot

Bamboo fence: $24 - $32 per linear foot

Chain Link Fence: $12 - $14 per linear foot

What style of fencing should I choose?

This is simply a personal preference. Having said that, you need to know what the fence’s major purpose will be. Yes, every fence divides a property, but will it also keep your pets and animals within the boundary? – This is a matter of concern. Some fences allow sunlight to give you an “open feel” whereas others offer an outright privacy. At the end of the day, it is you who should identify the right need, ticking off the right option.
