Fences are built in order to protect one’s property. Fences are very useful when created from durable materials and with the right and proportioned measurements. The fencing of houses and other business establishments can make it difficult for intruders and thieves who have a vile plan about robbing one’s belongings. It is also useful for protecting vulnerable children and small dogs and puppies from running away into the busy roads and run over by vehicles. Many American states allow fencing of residents and commercial structures for purposes of protection and for marking private territories. In some states in America, fence constructions are controlled by the zoning experts hired by the local government.

In Austin, Texas the zonal regulations department are in charge of controlling and overseeing the construction of fences in both residential and commercial districts. Every fence the fence builders in Austin Texas create must be evaluated and approved first by the zoning office. The materials the fence company uses for fencing are wood, metal and some vinyl. Vinyl is usually mixed with wood to add more strength and oftentimes when vinyl is added to wood, it also must be checked by the Texas zoning regulations and review office. There are parts of Austin, Texas where the fences are made of stones and some wood pickets; others are in stockades styling. It all depends on the rules laid out by the people in the zoning review board. The fences put up by fence builders in any zone of Austin are responsible to report to the zoning review office with regards to the fences they construct.

Texas is located at a USDA zone where there are warmer bouts of temperature as opposed to colder weather. What makes it better is that the state of Texas is not affected by the freezing icy weather during winter- although the temperature drops slightly to a comfortable cool level. Virtually any wood, metal (but mostly cast iron), and vinyl material can be used to construct fences in Austin because of this type of weather. As long as the materials and designs of the fences are approved by the zoning review office, the fence builders can start on their fence building projects.

Fence building involves the choosing of materials to be used and the selection of fence designs as well. Metal is commonly used in residential zones like in huge estate houses that require heightened security and privacy; the same goes with big commercial spots such as factories and also some government offices. The picket fence types are more frequently seen in neighborhoods that allow constructing of this fence type to match the uniformity of the certain residential zone layout.

Chain link type of fencing is also common in some school playgrounds and in schools. This type of fence provide protection to the children but still visible to their parents when classes end in the afternoon. This type of fence is especially useful to barricade the busy roads near schools to prevent small children and younger students from getting hit by oncoming vehicles. The fence builders in Austin Texas know this and they comply with the rules and regulations of the Texan zoning review and regulations bureau.

Probably one of the most important questions and aspects of any fence installation. Our general Rule at Patriot Fence for a 6′ tall fence is to set your posts 22″ deep. However there are exceptions to the rule. Generally the harder the ground you are going to concrete into, the less depth you will have to set the post. So on the jobs we are digging out the holes of pure rock with a Jackhammer a bare 15″ into limestone is more than adequate. On the other hand if you hire a fence contractor and you have pure dirt or loosely compacted soil your probably going to need to set anywhere from 22″ to 32″ to prevent future problems. These recommendations are taking into consideration my experience from working on and repairing fences in Central Texas. In other geographical areas regulations and specs change with many factors to consider. Call a professional fence contractor for a consultation about any fence project your are considering. Also do independent research to make sure you are educated on what you want and need.

According to the Humane Society 39% of American households are dog owners. When man’s best friend is roaming in your backyard is he in a safe environment? Your main measure of safety for your dog is a well constructed fence.

If you’re a long time dog owner moving into a new house, a new dog owner introducing your new family member into their home or are wondering about the safety of your loyal canine friend, before you let Rover out into your backyard take a look at your fence! The fence protecting your yard and your animal friend need a lot of thought and consideration.

Dogs need a degree of open space to roam, and the backyard is the territory afforded to many of Man’s Best Friends. But to be sure that he doesn’t escape is a priority. The common fence works well enough for aesthetics, but extra measures need to be taken given a dog’s habits. Many breeds of dogs have strong digging instinct and this can be a huge problem if you’re not prepared! If your fence’s posts and slats are only set against the ground, a determined puppy can dig the upper soil up and squeeze under the boards, exposing itself to the dangers of a busy street. An existing chain link fence in disrepair can have weaknesses in the perimeter that a curious animal can try to squeeze through, potentially exposing it to sharp exposed metal and grievous injuries! Never hesitate to call in a professional to not only install a fence, but to inspect and repair and existing fence!

Take your dogs individual needs into consideration. Does the size and constitution of the fence can come into question? Can your wood privacy fence take the force of an excited Great Dane jumping against it? Can your particularly energetic German Shepherd jump over your chain link fence? In the long run, new fence is a small investment to ensure the safety of your beloved family member.

Your friendly local fence contractor will have the knowledge needed to suit your individual needs. Call or e-mail our team here at Patriot Fence Austin for absolutely free quotes and consultation.

When building wood fences especially in Austin Texas there are some major and minor precautions you should use to improve the quality of a fence. One recommendation a client insisted on a cedar fence with cedar posts was to mound the concrete above ground level to improve water run off from the base of the fence post. This is a very effective method to prevent water rot that we see very often in cedar 4 x 4 posts and landscape timbers. We do not feel it is necessary to mound concrete around pressure treated pine 4 x 4 posts and galvanized steel posts because they are built and pre-treated to resist corrosion and rot. Cedar 4 x 4 posts are a great post to maintain the beautiful look of cedar on wood fences while at the same time using a wood that does not warp as much as pressure treated pine. Please bring this issue up when speaking to your local fence installer, contractor, or builder. If you use this method of post fastening you will have posts that will last longer in the future.

Building Fences in Austin, Texas

 

There are zonal regulations in North America and among the regulations involve the use of fences in subdivisions and commercial properties. There are two purposes of fencing- one is to mainly safeguard the safety of the owner’s property while the other one adds some visual feature to the fence built. Concrete and stone fences are common in big suburbs and cities like Los Angeles, California where the famous Hollywood place is located. The fences in this area are built with consideration to its durability and also to its aesthetic character; while in farming towns and in some other American cities such as Austin, Texas, the fences are mostly made of wood picket fence, and a few chain link fences and other solid fences to protect commercial property. The fence builders in Austin Texas are regulated by the Zoning Review Department of the city and each fence the fence company installs, it is always evaluated and approved by the regulating body.

 

Because of the suitably warm weather conditions, the fencing industries in Austin can choose from a variety of fencing material options. The fence builders in Austin Texas can select whatever fencing material they want to use- they are not limited to what choices of materials they can use because of the hot weather climate in the place. Snow is not there to ruin a simple wooden fencing material.

 

Consulting a fence builder, you will have to have an idea what fence design you would like the fence builders to create. It is up to you if you want your fence built for the purpose of utility like what you see in a commercial establishment, or if you want to have some design patterns added into it and make it more visually attractive.

 

Most commercial business owners would like to have their fence built in a chain link type. This is designed especially for keeping intruders out from a factory. Some would even demand to have an added barbwire on top of the chain link fence. Fences are built according to its purpose and the style and material used.  There are many kinds of fences- the stockade kind, the picket fence commonly seen in rural areas; the slat types which are mostly composed of wood which are put horizontally on top of each other, and there is the chain link fencing type.

In residential fencing a great way to ensure customer satisfaction is to discuss details and put them is writing before a project starts. A fence company should be knowledgeable about the options and details on wood fencing, ornamental iron fencing and Chain link fencing alike. Please see the new article on Patriot Fence’s Website about Grades of wood to consider when purchasing a wood privacy fence. With ornamental iron and chain link fencing a consumer should ask the size of posts and rails, thickness of steel, and coatings to protect corrosion such as galvanization, powder coating, and painting. A consumer and fence company should pay much attention to details when making an agreement on a fence project. Doing so allows for protection of both parties and most importantly customer satisfaction.

I wanted to make a short post that serves to protect consumers in selecting a fence company. Fence companies differ all around from service to support to products and when selecting a company to do your fence follow these steps to protect yourself in the buying process. Firstly you must decide and be as detailed as possible as to what type of fence you want including material, size, grade, measurements, etc.. This ensures you to be able to convey what you want to a company rep and helps the bidding process so you can compare “apples to apples” different companies. Secondly, find out about the companies you are getting bids from and research everything from references to online reputation. Be prepared that nobody is perfect, however this step will save you major headache and set apart the quality from the schmucks. Last of all protect yourself with the agreement and contract. If there is something you want make sure that it is agreed upon in writing and vise versa if there is something you don’t want make sure that it is noted and signed by both parties. This quick dialogue can help anyone looking to hire a fence company so please follow these steps and be careful in selecting a company to build your fence.
