Important!

We encourage you to speak with one of our fence experts before focusing solely on price! There are cheaper, inferior-quality fence materials available that will only last for a while. We don't use them. There are also very inexperienced and unprofessional fence installers who continually cut corners and don't stand behind their work, regardless of their so-called warranty.

Fences must stand up to Acadiana high winds, harsh weather, and physical abuse from animals, kids, gardeners, and neighbors. Shopping for the cheapest fence is generally not the best way to choose the fence you want to protect and beautify your home and the people you care about.

Other things can delay the start of a fencing project. If you choose custom fence material, style, color, or add-ons that must be specially ordered, your fence installation will often be delayed. These materials come from various manufacturers, and shipping and delivery times are beyond our control. We will help you identify, in advance, any of your choices that are likely to cause these additional delays, and we will offer alternatives whenever possible.

DIY Fence Estimate

If you'd like to get a rough idea on your own about how much fencing you will need, follow these easy steps:

  • If you know the dimensions of the area you wish to enclose, add the length of each side together. Use a tape measure. Rough estimates are fine; there is no need to be too precise.
  • Be sure to subtract the length of any structures, like a house, a barn, or a shed, that will serve as part of the barrier. This will give you a rough estimate of how much fencing you need.
  • For even greater accuracy, subtract the length of any gates you will be using. Often, gates are priced much differently than fencing. For this reason, we recommend that property owners looking to develop their fence estimate list the gates separately. A standard walk gate is approximately 4 feet wide, and a standard single driveway gate is closer to 10 feet wide.

Caution!

Fencing is often priced and sold by SECTIONS, not by linear feet! Even when the linear footage is included specifically in price estimates, the total number of sections is a factor in this pricing. So, price per linear foot is only a rough estimate and rarely represents the actual cost of the finished fence!

If you would love to explore and explain this difference, you can speak with one of our fence experts. Be aware that price per linear foot is a ploy many unprofessional fence installers in the Acadiana area use!

Every local municipality has a separate set of requirements when it comes to building permits, and that includes commercial fencing. Sometimes, the specific height of the fence, placement of the fence, or purpose of the fence can impact the need for a permit. There are also HOA considerations in some areas.

We have installed many commercial fences in almost every possible area across Acadiana so we are happy to answer these questions and guide you through the process.

The best way to get specific answers quickly and accurately is to call your town building code office.

Fencing is one of the most accessible industries for start-up businesses and novice laborers to get into. For these people looking to make a few extra dollars installing fences, a shovel, a level, and a string line may be all they need.

As a result, there are many individuals or companies who show up in Acadiana, install commercial fences for a short time, and then disappear. We see it all the time. Beware! You only want to work with a fully licensed and insured fencing contractor in Acadiana.

Here are some of the main pitfalls of working with non-professionals:

  1. The Commercial Fence Warranty is Void
    If the individual or company that installed your commercial fence is no longer in business, the workmanship warranty on the fence and the gates is worthless. Additionally, some manufacturers won't warranty their fence material if it was improperly installed or damaged during installation. Both situations are common with non-professionals.

  2. The Fence Almost Certainly Won't Last As Long
    As a professional fence company, our team of installers undergoes rigorous training and constant professional supervision. Our dedication to improving our skills, knowledge of the best fencing materials, and best fence installation techniques maximizes the strength and life of your fence. Companies that install fences as something they do "on the side" usually have no idea how much they don't know about commercial fencing or what is best for you and your property.

  3. Your Property May be at Risk
    Installing residential fences in the Acadiana area can be risky. Sudden, harsh weather during the fence installation can blow materials and damage your home. We've seen concrete splatter onto cars or drip down beautiful driveways or walkways as buckets of wet concrete are transported. Deep tire tracks sinking into your grass is another common issue. The secondary damage to homes and yards is common when untrained labor installs the fence.

    Additionally, you are at risk if anyone gets hurt on your property while they are working. If you hire an unlicensed or uninsured contractor, you may be liable and your insurance may deny payment!

At first glance, hiring a novice to install your fence may save you a few dollars, but in the long run, it is almost certainly a price you cannot afford to pay!

Aluminum Fence FAQs

Many small fence companies in Acadiana install aluminum fencing. Very few specifically train their teams on the best installation techniques and practices for aluminum fencing. Unfortunately, this means that your aluminum fence is probably not installed as securely as it could be, which ultimately can reduce the quality and lifespan of your aluminum fence.

Using inferior installation techniques and improper tools can also damage the aluminum fence during installation, which may have the unfortunate impact of voiding the manufacturer's warranty since you chose an unqualified contractor not approved by the manufacturer.

Here are some of the main pitfalls of working with non-professionals:

  1. The Aluminum Fence Warranty is Void
    If the individual or company that installed your aluminum fence is no longer in business, the workmanship warranty on the fence and the gates is worthless.

They're a popular choice among our customers because they are long-lasting, fully customizable, and need little upkeep while providing protection, privacy, and an aesthetically pleasing addition to any property.

The framework of the mixed material fence is made of powder-coated aluminum. The powder coating gives the aluminum its characteristic black color and ensures that the aluminum is water-proof and rust-resistant, making it great for the Acadiana area.

Vinyl Fence FAQs

Our crews are specially trained in the latest vinyl fence installation techniques, ensuring that your fence will look great, function properly, and hold up to the harsh weather typical of Acadiana.

Vinyl fencing is one of the most eco-friendly alternatives available.

Vinyl lasts a long time, so you don't have to generate or consume as many new resources to replace it. Additionally, vinyl fencing is recyclable, and this recycled vinyl fencing is often used in the next generation of new vinyl fences, making it an excellent option for those who are environmentally aware!

Another massive benefit to your immediate environment and the health of your family and pets is that vinyl fencing does not require abrasive cleaners, paint, or sealers, all of which may contain harsh or even toxic chemicals.

PVC, the material used to make vinyl fences, is nonporous; therefore, it does not readily accept paint. When it comes to fences, many xxxREGION residents select vinyl specifically because it never needs painting, staining, or sealing. Unlike wood fences, vinyl fences retain their original color and shine for their life span.

While vinyl fences can't be painted, there are many different colors and styles available to customize your fence to match your home and your personal style preferences.

Vinyl fences are an excellent choice for property owners looking for privacy. By far, the most popular privacy fence across Acadiana is the standard 6ft white vinyl privacy fence.

You can also choose semi-privacy options that obscure most of the view into your yard but also have decorative design features and come in many popular color choices.

Our vinyl fences have impressive warranties directly from the manufacturer.

Important!

We encourage you to speak with one of our fence experts before focusing solely on price! There are cheaper, very poor quality wood fence brands available that are not nearly as durable, will fade, will often warp, and have limited, if any, warranty. We don't use them.

There are also very inexperienced and unprofessional fence installers who continually cut corners and don't stand behind their work, regardless of what their so-called warranty says.

Wood fences must stand up to the physical demands of the Acadiana weather, and physical abuse from falling branches, landscapers, neighbors, animals, and more.

Shopping for the cheapest fence is generally not the best way to choose the fence you want to protect and beautify your home and the people you care about.

The overall strength of ornamental steel fences in North Louisiana varies based on the thickness of the fence posts and pickets as well as the post depth and fence height.
