Vinyl Fence Depot
Susej H. rated

Jack was very late, and he was condescending whenever I asked a direct question and I received no real answers. The Vinyl sample was very thin and had 4 little hallow compartments inside that showed on the outside. I'm an older woman and when I squeezed the vinyl with my fingers, the vinyl gave. Very cheap! I read several articles on vinyl fencing and they all insist that the posts be filled with treated "burial" wood because the vinyl is more of a hallow "sleeve" inside. Jack scoffed at that and made some lame excuses as to why there should be no wood inside their hallow fence support posts. This cheap junk will surely warp in the hot SoCal sun. I read a bunch of Yelp reveiws and many people complained that their fences warped and that the company wouldn't fix it. In fact this company has a hard time, according to their customers, fixing poor or damaged fences that they put up. They also raised their prices if you ask to have things written down and give only a 5 year warranty

Guardian Pool Fence

DO NOT TRUST. See website for 'restocking fee.' It's not there. Business owner Steve is extremely rude and if you order you better hope nothing goes wrong because customer service is non existent. Receptionist first said "we don't take returns."From their website return policy "Childguard Industries Inc., guarantees satisfaction. We will refund the purchase price of any in-stock item that the buyer is not satisfied with."I did not even mention to them about the poor instructions that made the $250+ gate essentially useless. Before returning some sections of fence I spoke to Steve and his receptionist on separate occasions and no penalties were mentioned. So I asked him if it's not on your website or in any kind of writing you could charge 30% for all I know. Well he said do you want me to charge you 30%? I'll do it. So basically if you make a transaction and have no concerns worth mentioning then fine, you have a bunch of poles and mesh just as advertised. However, if you think there is even a slight chance you will need to contact them for service on ANYTHING then you might as well pound your head on a brick wall because that'll be more effective. On that note you can seriously question the whole 6 year warranty thing, too. I'm certainly not counting on it and hoping this holds up or I'm down a good chunk of change.

Vinyl Fence Depot
Lois T. rated

If looking to replace your fence look someplace else. This place did a terrible job on a fence that my neighbor coordinated and I paid half. I was told by the person who installed the fence that it was very difficult to scratch the fence. On the day of installation I was not home when the fence was finished. When I arrived home my neighbor told me to let the concrete set for 24 and do not clean the fence. The next day I cleaned the fence with water only and noticed several scratches and a few spots where the underlay material was showing through. Also the fence is not even. My neighbor called the company to come back out and they replaced a few of the boards/slats. However, they made it worse. There is a very strange line going through two entire sections. Vinyl Fence Depot came back out and they are now saying that it isn't their responsibility. They said it looks like someone sprayed something on the fence and that is what caused the lines. Well they are the only ones that sprayed anything on the fence. I wish I had the old rotten wood fence back and my money. If I was the person who coordinated the install I would have insisted immediately that they take the entire fence down and redo.

Did You Know?

Homes are among the most expensive purchases you'll make in your lifetime, and it's important to make it your own, both inside and out. A fence can serve a number of purposes, including keeping a rambunctious pet or child from straying too far, creating privacy for your yard, improving the value of the house or simply making your home more secure.

More than 99,000 businesses offer fencing services and products in the United States, and the industry generates about $51 billion in revenue a year. With all of these options, homeowners can team up with a fencing contractor that meets their budget and requirements.

Types of Fences

No fence is one-size-fits-all. Each home is different, with its own character and charm, and homeowners should expect their fence to reflect this aesthetic. Fortunately, there are a number of fence materials that you can choose from to add to the look and function of your home.

Wood
When people dream about a house with a picket fence, wood is often the material that comes to mind. Wood is the most popular fencing type in the U.S. because it provides privacy thanks to its build and height options, looks attractive, and will likely last for the lifetime of the home. The downside of this option is that the height and size can impact the price, and it can take time to install.

Aluminum
Aluminum may not provide the type of security that wood and other options might as it would need fill-in panels. It requires little maintenance and can be decorated any way you want. However, this type of fencing is not ideal for areas with severe weather.

PVC
If you like the look of a wood fence, but not the price, PVC could be a good option. PVC is much cheaper and can be used to replace wooden stakes and pickets. While it's not as sturdy as wood, it can significantly cut down on material costs and comes in a variety of heights and colors. A PVC fence can last for years and has a high resistance to the elements.

Vinyl
Vinyl is one of the cheapest and most durable fencing types on this list. A vinyl fence has four times the flexibility and five times the strength of comparable wood fences. Although it has a high upfront cost, it requires no maintenance and is overall less expensive than other options.

Bamboo
Homeowners that are looking to be green may find bamboo fencing to be an appealing option. Bamboo is grown naturally, rising up to a foot a year, and can be planted to create a fence. Rolled bamboo and bamboo cane options will be the sturdiest choices and are optimal for colder climates.

Electric
If you think that fences are an eyesore, an invisible electric fence might be the optimal choice. These are especially beneficial for homeowners with pets. A trench is dug along the fence's boundary, and a wire is buried within. A wireless transmitter can then interact with a pet's collar to warn the animal when it is near the edge. Pets will stay within your yard, and you won't have the bulky structure of a fence.

How to Know if a Fence Works for Your Yard

Now that you know what materials are available, you might have an idea of what type of fence you'd like. However, there are a few considerations you'll need to address to verify that a fence will work for your yard:

Check Your HOA Regulations
Before you can begin planning for a new fence, you'll want to double check the rules for your neighborhood. Some homeowners' associations have stipulations concerning fences including standards for what materials can be used, as well as height requirements. Using this information, homeowners can thoroughly assess their options and stay in line with HOA regulations. You'll want to refrain from building excessively tall structures unless permitted by the HOA and municipality ordinances. Without this allowance, your fence will end up costing more.

Draw the Lines
Now that you know what guidelines are in place for fences in your area, it's time to determine if a fence will work for your yard in particular. You'll need to confirm your property lines to ensure that you stay within your established boundaries. A fence consultant will need to come out and locate utilities and other obstructions that could interfere with construction. The slope and contour of the terrain can affect the measurement of your fence as well. Understanding these elements will help determine if your yard is a good candidate for a fence and make planning run more smoothly.

Lay out Your Reasons
Establishing a fence takes some time and investment, so it will be important to consider why you're installing a fence in the first place. If you have kids or pets, safety might be your main reason. You might put in a fence for privacy if your landscaping isn't enough to provide your desired level of seclusion. For those selling their home, a fence can add visual appeal and increase property value. These considerations may guide you on what type of fence will be best for your home.

Common Issues

To properly maintain your fence, you must first learn about what problems you may face:

Damaging Utilities
Utility lines must be marked before fence installation to prevent any damages. A simple visit from a professional can save you a lot of headaches down the road.

Overlooking Standards
If you build a fence that doesn't adhere to ordinances, it can cost you a lot to address. Be sure to check with your HOA and municipality for regulations concerning what is required to build a fence in your area.

Leaning Fences
If you don't maintain your fence properly, you can expect it to come down with a few problems. You may notice that your fence is leaning or sagging, and this can be a fairly expensive problem to fix. If you don't close the gate properly, your hinges might sag and prevent your gate from closing securely. Homeowners can prevent these situations by performing regular maintenance on their fences.

Installation

Fence installation often occurs in stages. First, the fence company will mark the utility lines in your yard. Then, a crew will dig posts and set them in concrete. About a week later, the company will come and install the stringers, gates, fencing material and everything else. The average installation cost is slightly more than $4,500, but it will largely depend on the materials used. It's inadvisable to try to make this a DIY project, as a high degree of skill is required, and many costly problems can result from a bad fence installation.

Maintenance

Aluminum, vinyl and PVC fences all require little to no maintenance. Homeowners may use soap and water to clean off these materials, but they generally don't require much more than that. These options can be good for those that want a sturdy but low-touch fence.

Wood fences, on the other hand, require a little bit more work. With exposure to the sun and the elements, wood fences are prone to cracking, warping and cupping. To prevent this, homeowners are encouraged to clean, seal and stain their fence at least every three years. Clean the fence with a specially formulated cleaner. After 15 to 20 minutes, use a pressure washer to remove any mold, mildew and debris from the fence. From there, you can seal and stain the fence to protect it and help the wood look good as new. An oil stain is recommended, as it penetrates the material and can maintain its condition for years.

Choosing a Service

With tens of thousands of fencing service companies to choose from, how do you know which one will be the best for your needs? Here are some considerations to help you make a decision:

Are There Portfolio Examples?
You'll need to do some homework on your potential contractors. First, see if they have a website and a portfolio of samples. These can indicate the provider's level of experience and highlight their capabilities.

What's Their Reputation Like?
You'll want to have a contractor that has a good reputation. Look at customer reviews as well as how long the provider has been in business. If a contractor requires an immediate decision, asks you to pay cash or doesn't provide an estimate, it should serve as a major red flag. A friend or family member may also be a good source for recommending a contractor.

Is the Work Guaranteed?
Some organizations may offer a variety of promises, such as time to completion and discounts, simply to get you in the door. It's important to question the validity of these guarantees and research whether the contractor has delivered on these commitments. If it's clear that the contractor constantly misses deadlines or doesn't meet obligations, you'll want to renew your search.

Is There a Warranty?
No matter how good a contractor is, there may be an issue with the fence a year or two down the road. You should ask about what type of warranty is offered. A warranty could help offset repair costs if you have a sagging fence, while enabling you to fix any warped or cracked panels that may occur after exposure to the elements.

Trade Associations

Homeowners should work with a fencing contractor who is certified by or a member of one or more trade organizations. Some of the biggest associations in this industry include:

American Fence Association
Since 1962, the American Fence Association has grown to be the largest and most comprehensive resource in the industry. The group aims to benefit fence-industry professionals and customers by promoting professionalism, education and certification of its members while keeping up with the latest developments, materials, standards and tools.

The AFA has created a rigorous certification program and requires recertification every three years. Professionals must prove a history of service in the industry prior to taking the certification exam and complete the multiple-choice test.

North American Fence Contractors Association
The NAFCA is a group of fence professionals who look to bring contractors and vendors together for better affordability and accessibility to educational opportunities within the industry. It's run by a number of volunteers and encourages all contractors who want to develop their skills to join.
