There are at least three categories when it comes to the length of time for installing fences. some take two to four weeks, while others can be around five to six weeks. we can start within a time frame of two to four weeks if there is no need to fabricate metals or have some complicated permits processed. On the other hand, the expected time frame is five to six weeks if there is need for metal fabrication. Therefore, the time frame is affected by the type of fence and the type of materials that will be needed for installation
Usually, the fence installation process itself is comprised of two or three working days that are not consecutive. It is important that these days are not following one another to allow some time for materials to settle. For example, cement needs to be left alone for some time to allow proper drying. Hence, the overall time frame is about one week to account for this. It may take a little bit longer for projects that require more extensive customization. Also, a bigger project with more linear feet in total would need more time to be completed. We allow an additional two to three weeks for those.
Yes, it is a must for all fence companies to acquire the permits that are needed to proceed with your project. Different neighborhoods may require different permits.

This is a question which we cannot guarantee a simple “yes” or a “no.” The reason for this is that legal restrictions may substantially vary from area to area. What might be allowed in one area may prohibited in another. For instance, some areas may have zoning ordinances which can limit your fences when it comes to dimensions and placements. There can also be some neighborhoods where only certain designs or colors are allowed. It is always a good practice to check with the laws and ordinances in your area so that any problems in the future may be avoided.
No, you do not really need to consult your neighbors, but we strongly recommend that you do. There are typically no written regulations that would straightforwardly require you to do a formal consultation with your neighbor. However, you and your neighbors share some common spaces within your area. Therefore, they may be affected by the commotions happening during the installation processes. It is common courtesy to notify your neighbors and inform them about what is going on. This can help keep them and their children safe. Also, communication with your neighbors can help you live harmoniously as part of your local community.
On the average, the depth of the fence posts we install is at approximately three feet. This is more or less, the minimum. However, there will be considerable differences on the exact depth depending on the type of fence you will have installed. The needed depth may also be affected by the type of material to be used. Significant depth is needed so that your fence would be able to stand properly. However, there is no need to worry about the specifics of this installation component because we have an expert team who would be in charge of these technicalities for your convenience.
For most fences and most situations, the simple general response to this question is no. According to our expert team at Las Cruces Fence Company, in an ideal situation the fence material must not be in contact with the ground. The usual reason for this is related to prevention of damage, usually from water. Certain fence material types behave differently from frequent exposure to water. This increases the risk for damage. In some situations, it may be allowed for the fence to touch the ground. In some areas, a without a gap below can help in keeping out small animals.
The short and simple answer to this is yes there is possibility for weather conditions to affect the fence installation process. We at the Las Cruces Fence Company carefully and thoroughly prepares and plans for every project to avoid any problems. The weather condition is one thing that are simply beyond our control. However, we make sure that we are prepared to deal with the situation and that your project will not be damaged even when it rains. Sometimes, we may have to stop the installation process temporarily. However, we still aim to keep up with your schedule despite delays.
Ultimately, you as the property owner would be the one who will determine the type of material which you will use for your fence installation project. To help you decide, you must assess your needs and preferences regarding the fence that would like to have. Do you have preference is terms of color? Is durability your priority? Is budget a big consideration? These are some questions that can help guide you in making a decision. For instance, if you like the classic look of wood, consider a cedar wood fence. Or if your need security for a good price, chain link would be a decent choice.
Your preferences and the restrictions in your area are the two primary things that can help determine the exact height of your fence. In terms of preference, a good example would be your considerations when it comes to privacy. In this case, a much taller fence can offer more privacy than a shorter one. In terms of the restrictions in your area, you must find out whether there are regulations that limit the height of fences in your neighborhood to specified dimensions. The function of the fence and property type would be important too. For example, back stops in ball fields are considerably tall.
The lifespan of your fence is dependent on a multitude of factors. If longevity and durability is your primary consideration when it comes to fences, you need to pay attention to which materials are long lasting to help guide your choices. It is no secret that some materials naturally outlast others. Some materials that can last more than a decade are aluminum and vinyl. Other things that can influence the lifespan of your fence is how you maintain them. This may not be applicable for low maintenance fences. Other types, such as wooden fences would need maintenance measures such as yearly repainting.
