Do you charge sales tax?
No. Since we pay sales tax on the materials for your fence, we are not required to charge tax to the customer for installing the fence.
What areas do you work in?
You will find our work throughout the Big Country. We generally stay within Taylor County, but will usually travel within a 35-mile radius of Abilene, TX. These are not definite boundaries, so feel free to call if you live outside of this area.
Do you use concrete when setting posts?
Yes. All of our fences are set in concrete. The hole is dug 2-3’ deep (depending on fence type) and dug wider or "belled" out at the bottom. The top of the hole can either be back-filled with dirt or have concrete filled to the top, to help prevent wood-rot. Proper installation of posts is critical to a fence installation.
Is there a long wait to have my job installed, and how long will it take once you get started?
Our waiting list for installations will vary throughout the year. The summer months are the busiest, which means a longer wait time. A good estimate is 1-2 weeks in the winter and 2-3 weeks in the summer, but your estimator will have a better time frame for you. The timespan of a job is usually 1-5 days. For wood fences, we prefer to set posts on the first day, then let the concrete harden for at least 24 hours before we come back to finish the job.
Should I paint or stain my wood fence?
We recommend applying a protective finish to the fence after it’s installed. This helps to minimize the effects of weathering and to maximize the fence’s lifespan. Be sure to reapply every 4-5 years, or as needed.
What type of residential gates are available?
For residential applications, single walkthrough gates are generally used for people to pass through, although they can be made up to 12' wide and are the same height as the fence.
Should I put my new fence on the property line?
If both neighbors are paying for the fence together and agree on the fence line, then it may be put on the property line. If you were paying for the fence by yourself, then we recommend installing the fence on your side of the property line.
