Q: Do you offer paint or stain for my fence?
A: Yes we can power wash, paint and stain any fence, new or old.
Q: Do you provide free estimates?
A: Yes, a “rough” estimate may be acquired over the phone based on the information you give us (the measurements, type of fence, and number of gates). There are many different conditions that play a part in the actual cost of your new fence, so Anthony prefers to be able to meet with you personally to ensure he understands what you want and so he can give you an an exact price and let you know what to expect.
Q: What if I have a pool?
A. We will put up temporary fencing around your pool until your new fence is complete.
Q: What is a typical privacy fence made of?
A: Cedar is the most popular type of wood used for a new residential privacy fence. Cedar offers more stability than other woods, and is easy to work with, while at the same time being resilient enough for Dallas-Fort Worth weather.
Q: Is it normal to have different shades of cedar in my pickets?
A: Yes, cedar is a natural product that is not treated in any way. Because of this, every new picket is unique in color and grain.
Q: What types of fences do you build?
A: We will build you the fence that best fits your needs and can custom build something for you too. Our wood fences are usually 6′ or 8′ tall and are built in different styles (see our photos and individual fence pages for more information). We use galvanized steel posts that are set at least 24 to 28 inches deep in concrete, treated rails and bottom boards, and standard or custom gates.
Q: Which is better, an iron or an aluminum fence?
A: They both have positive and negative attributes. If it is pre-galvanized and powder coated, an iron fence can last a long time and is very durable. Aluminum, on the other hand, will withstand the extreme Texas weather, but it can be more expensive than iron.
Q: Does Dallas Fence Experts only build new fences?
A: In addition to building new wood fences in the DFW Metroplex for years, we also specialize in concrete and natural stone work, retaining walls, custom wrought iron fences and automatic driveway gates.
Q: Are you also a commercial fence contractor?
A: Yes! We offer commercial solutions such as fencing, landscaping, perimeter security, access control and retaining walls. And, if we can’t help you with what you need, we will recommend someone who can.
Q: How tall should my retaining wall be?
A: Retaining wall heights vary depending on the materials you use and the site conditions. Dallas Fence Experts specializes in erosion and drainage control services and can help you select the right material and height for your retaining wall.
Q: Can I use pavers for my driveway?
A: Depending on the material, pavers may be used for driveways. We can provide you with a variety of custom concrete or stone solutions for your driveways, walkway or patio and consult you on which material is best to use.
