Chesterfield Fence Company's Most Frequently Asked Questions
The cost of a fence depends upon several factors. The main determining factors consist of what type of fence material is selected, the style of fence being built, what type and how many gates are installed, and, of course, how many linear feet of fence is required. (Linear footage is calculated by measuring the perimeter of the area that the fence will be built on.) For privacy fences, pressure-treated pine is the most economical material choice.
Want to get a better idea of fence cost? Use our virtual fence designer. It uses satellite imagery to display a birds-eye-view of your yard and allows you to easily trace where you’d like your fence installed. Draw directly on a Google map, select fence choices, select gates, and get an INSTANT PRICE ESTIMATE.
When your backyard backs up against your neighbor’s yard, you’ll want a privacy fence with a height that gives you the most privacy. Usually, this can be accomplished with a 6ft height. But Chesterfield Fence can do height transitions that work between 6ft and 8ft in order to give you more privacy or more view depending on your preference.
If your backyard does not back up against a neighbor, but to a green space or pond, our aluminum fence is a popular choice. Enjoy the security your fence will bring while still being able to enjoy the view.
The land rights may vary in your area. So, it may be necessary to check with your local tax assessor’s office office. However, the ownership of an existing fence is typically the same owner of the land for which the fence is installed upon. Chesterfield Fence Company does not conduct any property surveys nor do we imply property lines. If there is an existing fence, you should check with your neighbors to be certain the fence is yours. A survey company can mark your property lines for a fee.
Yes. Our pine fencing products are pressure treated to make them resistant to insects, rot, and damage. All of our wood fences are Made in The USA.
Looking to add more protection to your fence? Ask about our staining services! Our stain is commercial grade, solvent free, and mineral oil based. This is the most effective and safe way to preserve your wood.
When fences are installed using pre-fabricated panels, fencing slopes and irregular ground levels can be difficult to properly fence. You will usually get large gaps at the bottom areas and uneven capping.
Chesterfield Fence Company does NOT use pre-fabricated fence panels. We build custom fences. Custom fences (or stick-built fences) allow us to better follow the lay-of-the-land (topography) and gives a much smoother transition. We can include custom transitions as an upgrade to your fence installation.
The turnaround time for fence installation depends on several factors such as type of fence, length of fence to be installed, and site conditions. Project time would also be affected by the removal of any existing fence if required. Usually, a Chesterfield Fence installation takes 2 days here in Central Virginia. If we’re also removing an old fence, the total time would be 3 to 4 days. Please ask your sales representative for scheduling details.
