Visions of the old west include open range, where the cattle roam aimlessly to graze pretty much where
they please. While this is a great vision, it is not the case in many, or most, parts of the American west
any longer. Colorado Springs is nearing half a million residents, and fences sometimes are a necessity to
secure inventory and equipment, and keep children and our homes safe from those roving cows.
When you look at Colorado Springs Fence Companies, you need to see who is local and who is
experienced. Customer service is important in fencing, as it is a security addition to you property. Fences
need to be installed correctly, panels screwed in adequately, posts set properly, and all parts secured
and finished off, so your new fence not only looks good, but holds up in our variable south central
Colorado weather.
Weather in general is hard on fencing in our state. The intense sun creates UV damage to board fence in
particular, as most good quality vinyl fencing has additives to mitigate sun damage. When you install a
board fence, any reputable fencing contractor in Colorado Springs is going to suggest a sealer be applied
to increase the life span of that board. Wood panel fences also need to be very well installed and
secured, as they are a buffer to our demanding winds. The last thing you need is your fence flat, or
worse, in the neighbor’s yard or pool.
Fencing Colorado Springs enjoys include wood (rail, panel, or picket), chain link of various weights and
heights, iron, and vinyl. Each type of fence has its advantages and challenges, ranging from what it will
keep in or out to cost to purchase and install. As a rule, wood and chain link usually are the most
economical choices, but may require more maintenance over the long run. Vinyl is durable, upscale, but
more expensive. Iron fence is the most durable choice but also the highest in original cost. A good fence
contractor can write a quote for you based on your property and the best type of fence for your needs.
Fence repair is more of a specialty than a lot of people realize, as it is actually often harder to repair a
fence so it looks right and is level and straight than to install it new. The repair might vary from a few
pickets in a dog-ear panel wooden fence to top rail replacement and reweaving of damaged fence panel
in chain link. Matching styles or materials and trying to blend in the repair is often an issue so the repair
does not detract from the beauty of a property. An experienced fencing repair company will be aware of
that, know tricks to help make the corrections looks like they belong, and can get your property secured
quickly and economically. Contact for a free estimate on
