The level of maintenance for your fence depends on which product you choose. Vinyl is one of the easiest fence materials to maintain. It is extremely sun and weather resistant due to UV-resistant additives and other features. To clean it, you only need to rinse it down with a hose or brush it off. Wood, wrought iron, aluminum fences, and chain-link fences may need a little more work and might even require professional repair at times, but don’t worry – all of our installations come with a five-year labor warranty. We also provide limited lifetime material warranties for our PVC and aluminum products and we back all manufacturer warranties.

Most towns require that a permit be applied for. Call your local village hall to find out what your town requirements may be.
We ask that you have a plot of the survey of your property available to ensure that your fence is installed within your property lines and recommend you have this at the time of your estimate. Most towns also require to see a plot of the survey in order to apply for a permit. If you do not have a copy, check with your town as they might have a copy on file.
We ask that someone is home when our installers arrive. This way you can review and confirm the fence layout and answer any questions that our install crew may have. We also ask for someone to be home once installation is complete. This way you can inspect the installation and also pay the balance upon completion.
After your estimate, our sales staff will be calling JULIE, Indiana 811, or the City of Chicago depending where you live, to mark for utilities as mandated by state law. You may be surprised by what’s buried in your yard. That’s because most electric, gas, water, sewer and telecommunications companies are delivering utility services underground. This will be completed within 48 hours, and once completed our sales team will confirm no utilities are interfering with where you would like your fence. If you know where any underground utilities are located please make sure to let our sales team know when they are on site. There are times where a utility might be conflicting with the placement of your fence, but Fence Masters is equipped and prepared to handle this situation and will work with you to find the best solution to your needs.
