What is the typical cost of a fence in Fort Collins?
There are a number of factors to consider when installing a fence for your home and getting a quote from a contractor. Currently, the average fence installation costing the United States is around $4500. This average price can increase depending on the size of your property, whether you have a commercial fencing need as well as the types of materials you need to use in your fence.
How long does it take to install a new fence in Fort Collins?
It ultimately depends on the size of the fence that you need installed. Most residential fences can come together in just one to three days. Larger commercial jobs and larger residential fences may require several additional days depending on the requirements of the project. Our staff will provide you with a reasonable outlook for time with your new fence installation in Fort Collins.
What sort of maintenance is required on fencing?
Sometimes a fence may need to be adjusted as it sags and settles. This usually happens within the first 90 days and we can be contacted to make adjustments if you’re having trouble opening your gate. The only real maintenance concerns that you may have with a wood fence is resealing it every few years. If you happen to notice the woods starting to rot or crumble it may also be time for replacement. Generally, fences can last between 15 to 20 years with treated lumber. Resealing generally needs to take place every 4 to 7 years.
Aluminum fences generally require the least amount of maintenance. As long as sections remain in place and the fence doesn’t think too much, you can just replace fencing components as they wear out or open up.
What are the rules for fences in Fort Collins?
You do not need a permit to build a fence in Fort Collins unless it is over 6 feet high. There may be specific zoning restrictions based on where in Fort Collins you live. The city also has various standards for fencing which you can find on the official city of Fort Collins fencing website.
Don’t forget to check with your HOA for any further restrictions your neighborhood may have regarding fences.
