Nope! You’re welcome to follow your normal routine during the construction of your fence. And don’t worry about installers making a judgement call or changing the plan without your approval—all installers are forbidden from deviating from written instructions unless authorized to do so by the company representative, and we won’t do that without your approval.
In short, use your days off for something fun—something that doesn’t involve watching us install your fence.
When working with lumber, there’s a certain amount of natural minor cracking, shrinkage, and warpage that occur over time. No type of wood is immune to these minor changes, and these are not considered defects in wood or fences.
At Memphis Fence Company, we do not locate original property pins. We’ll either install a fence where the original was located or follow your specific instructions on placement. Concerned about where your fence should be located? Consider conducting a survey before beginning the project.
It’s always wise to consult with neighbors before building a fence, especially if it’s on a shared property line.
Yes— our team is made up of expert fence builders, not landscapers. We don’t want to be responsible for making unwanted changes to your hedges or trees, so please ensure that the fence line is clear before we begin installing your fence.
A range of factors go into the cost of your fence, from total area and size to materials and special features like gates and more. The cost will be determined after an in-person estimate appointment from one of our team members.
You should be present when our initial visit to determine an estimate takes place, so that you can ask questions and provide answers for any questions our team member may have.
Some fence posts can look just fine above ground while being rotted and weakened underneath. On average, fence posts are good for around a decade. You can test their underground condition by driving an ice pick into them below the ground line. If they easily break into the post, it is likely in need of replacement.
If you’re the one engaging with us for the project, you’ll need to be paid by your neighbor directly. We’ll only bill one of you with the full cost of the project in order to simplify the process.
Wood carries a range of natural variations, so while your fence will be made up of one species of wood, there will likely be some minor variation in the overall color and shade.
We complete projects in the order that we receive initial deposits as well as the order of material availability. If you booked us immediately after the project we just completed, then you’re next in line— unless we’re still waiting on orders of materials to arrive. We’ll always keep you informed on when you can expect to have your fence completed.
