Aluminum fences are a great option for Tampa, Florida homes and businesses. An aluminum fence enhances any home's or business' appearance with its elegant look.

Aluminum fences require very little maintenance. Simply spray your aluminum fence with water using your garden hose. This helps to keep it free from fertilizer chemicals, dirt, and grass clippings. This will keep it looking as good as new. In coastal areas, frequent spraying of your aluminum fence panels with water is advised to reduce the buildup of dirt and salt.

QUESTIONS ABOUT VINYL FENCES

Vinyl fences are a great choice for Florida homes and businesses. Vinyl fencing is designed for durability. Vinyl is resistant to damage from the elements such as rain and sunlight. It's also resistant to damage from insects such as termites and carpenter ants. Unlike other traditional materials such as metal and wood, vinyl fencing won't rot or rust over time. This flexible material is also impact-resistant, so it can stand up to everyday wear and tear. The longevity of vinyl fencing makes it a sustainable fencing option.

QUESTIONS ABOUT WOOD FENCES

Wood fences are a good option for fencing in the Tampa, Florida area.

Wood fences are long-lasting, sustainable and beautiful. It's hard to beat the beauty of a well crafted wood fence.

We use ground contact pressure treated pine for all our wood fences. Pressure treated wood is processed using high pressure to force a solution of water and preservative agents deep into the lumber to help extend its lifespan.

Ground contact pressure treated exterior wood is protected with Micronized Copper Azole (MCA-C) with BARamine provides lasting support and protection for all-purpose applications. In addition to slowing decay, these compounds have properties that make them resistant to termites, fungus, moisture and other elements that contribute to rot and damage to the wood. This process enables pressure treated fence posts to withstand years of being embedded in soil.

No, we prefer not to cut the posts to height, but rather to dig the holes to the appropriate height. This preserves the integrity of the pressure treated exterior of the wood.

Our posts are set 24 inches deep, and we use 60 lbs. of concrete per post.

For wood fences under 6 foot tall, you won't need a building permit in Tampa, Florida. If your fence design needs a building permit, we will handle everything, with no additional charges.

We will call ahead to make sure the customer will be home when we arrive. If they are unable to be home, we ask that they provide us with their phone number, in case we need to reach them. We prefer the homeowner to be home during the installation, but if they are unable to be there, we will proceed with the fence installation.

The foreman will introduce himself to the customer. Before beginning the installation process, the forman will stake out the property and get the customer's approval. He will also discuss the customer's desired direction for the gate swing. When the installation is complete, we will ask the customer to do final walkthrough, then collect any remaining balance.

We usually leave this to the customer to handle. If the customer prefers that we take care of these items, we are happy to provide that additional service, for an additional charge.

We complete most fence projects in one day. For very large fencing projects that cannot be completed in one day, we will return the next day to complete the project.

We call ahead to call-before-you-dig so that we know where all the underground utilities are before installing our fences. In the rare case that an underground utility is broken during the installation process, we fix any line we break - at no additional charge to our customer.
