TIP Most Charleston SC Realtors will tell you that having a fence is far more desirable for resale than not having one, but beware because most HOAs have design requirements so do not build without checking with your neighborhood’s HOA. Also, make sure you know where your property lines are with a survey or plat map of the subdivision.
Most quotes are free, but the fastest way to get a quote is to know what you already have in mind. If you have a tape measure try to measure the length of fence you’d need or want and have that handy. Fencing estimates are done in linear feet. There are what seems like a hundred different styles of fence, some with fascia board, some without, some 6 ft, and some 8 ft.
Wooden fence contractors in Charleston SC usually use pressure treated pine because that is what we have available here on the east coast, where as on the west coast you’ll find most fences will be constructed out of cedar. Regardless of which wood the fence is built from the methods are all the same, most posts are laid with concrete footers, but recently some fence contractors have gone to a new method of using expanding foam which has proven to also be a good alternative.
The most common fence you’ll find here in South Carolina will be the 6ft dog eared picket as they are the most economically affordable option. The more ornate and detailed (see image to left) your fence is, with extra boards, caps, and trim will increase the price of materials and labor to install.
Vinyl fencing is a type of plastic fence made with PVC (polyvinyl chloride) just like water pipes. The PVC resin is combined with special ingredients that give vinyl fence exceptional impact strength, durability and weather-ability. Unlike wood the vinyl is not susceptible to insects and water rot.
Vinyl is an easy-care alternative to other fence materials. A vinyl fence won’t warp, rot, split or blister like a wood fence, or rust, chip, peel or corrode like aluminum. Vinyl never needs sanding, staining or painting. Surface dirt and debris wash away easily with a periodic pressure washing or spray off with a garden hose.
Plastic fence is a safe choice for families and pet owners. Unlike wood fences, which are often treated with chemicals to protect the fence from weathering, vinyl is non-toxic. It doesn’t splinter and contains any nails or sharp edges that can harm children or animals. Plastic is also an environmentally friendly fence material, since it is fully recyclable and offers an eco-conscious alternative to the dwindling supply of trees harvested for wood fencing.
Green building is something we like to pride ourselves on and we promote metal roofs for their earth friendly qualities as well as synthetic decks and porches here in Charleston SC.
