How to choose the fence that is right for you!

Getting a new fence for your property is a great investment, so how do you choose what is right for you? Here are 7 tips to help you in your search for the perfect fence! 

  1. What is the purpose of the fence? Answering this question will help you narrow your search the most! Do you need to keep kids and animals in or out? Do you need replace an existing fence? Want privacy for your backyard space? This you should establish first then consider your budget.

  2. Central Fence does not offer financing. We require a deposit of 40%-50% of your project depending on the project cost. Upon completion of the project is when we require the balance due. Once you decide on your budget consider your materials.

  3. Material options are Vinyl, White Cedar, Aluminum, and Chainlink. All are beautiful and can be mixed and matched to suit your budget needs.

  4. What is your desired layout? This is where we come in. Give us a call or send us an e-mail and we can put together a free estimate by either doing a site visit or using our in house mapping software to get you started.

  5. Some towns have laws on the types of fence you can have in certain areas, like historical districts and around pools. Further, some towns require permits. We are familiar with a lot of the laws but not all, we recommend checking your towns building department for fence guidelines. TIP most of this information can be found on the towns website under building codes.

  6. EXTRAS! Who doesn't like to add a little curb appeal to their property! Central Fence also has a selection of Arbors, planters, and trellises in Cedar and Vinyl. We also have several post cap upgrades in various styles as well as solar lights.

  7. To install or not to install, is that your question? We do everything from ordering the materials to installing the material, but DIYers will be happy to know that we do offer material only sales! We can help determine the material you need or you can provide us with a list and we will order or manufacture your job lot. When it is complete, you will be called to pick up or ask about delivery!
