Advantages of Installing a Fence.

A frame completes any work of art or picture. Similar to how a garden will appear with a fence. A garden fence not only adds to the overall beauty of the garden but also gives the entire landscape a more complete look. A fence can be erected around the front yard, backyard or around the entirety of the property. Adequate fencing adds to the security of your house and property as well.

The different styles of fence that you can choose from include picket fences, privacy fences and post and rail fences. You should take into consideration the average cost of popular fence types which include wood, vinyl, aluminum, steel and chain link. A drive through Michigan makes it clear that the vinyl and wood fence is the fence of choice for most of the residents.

Unlike wood, vinyl fence never weathers, rots or grows mold and moss. Vinyl fence also requires little to no maintenance. The most maintenance a vinyl fence may need is an occasional hosing down due to mud or dirt. Vinyl fence also comes in a variety of colors, so you can choose which color best suits your yard. This type of material also blocks out road noise and comes in 6 foot tall privacy styles which can also help with security and give privacy in your own backyard or front yard.

Western red cedar is the most popular type of wood material used throughout Michigan. This type of fencing offers natural insulation for the property by blocking the cold winds. It also acts as a sound blocker and is great for keeping down the noise from loud neighbors.

Cedar also acts as a natural insect repellent. The cedar oil acts as a deterrent to mosquitoes, termites and other bugs, which in turn protects itself as well as the surrounding property. Cedar wood contains natural thujaplicin, this makes it one of the most durable woods. It delays the wood from rotting away due to decay causing fungi and damage. Therefore, this type of fence will have a long lifespan if it is properly cared for. If you want to give your property an elegant look, steel or aluminum fencing is your best bet.

After you have made up your mind of the style and type of fence you want to build around your garden you can go about designing it. Depending on your needs choose a proper height for the fence. However make sure that it adheres to the local regulations for residential fence heights. The state of Michigan requires you to acquire a building permit in some cities. It is always a good idea to research your local laws and regulations before selecting a style and height of a new fence.

Begin your assignment by determining the location of the fence you need. Find out if there are any obstructions on the fence line such as shrubs or trees that need to be removed. If you have your installation by Anchor Fence, we will pull the permit for you. All you would need is a mortgage survey and signature approval from your neighbors, if this is needed in your city.

Tips for Staining a Wood Fence

Staining and sealing a wood fence can make the wood last longer and make the wood more resistant to mold and rotting. Stains can also make your wood fence more aesthetically pleasing as well as make your yard stand out from the rest of the neighborhood.

There are numerous ways to stain your fence including a paint brush, roller or paint sprayer.  For larger projects, it may be worth it to invest in a quality sprayer as it will make the job go much faster and save time on labor.  For smaller projects, a simple roller and paint brush for those hard to reach areas should work just fine.

Choosing a stain is the biggest decision you will have to make when staining your fence.  There are so many variations of stain offered and big box retailers offer generic brand stains at an affordable price.  Remember though, as is the case with so many things in life, sometimes you get what you pay for.  So be sure to do PLENTY of research before settling on a stain, look up reviews for the brand to get a better understand of how well the stain will work.  Going with a cheaper brand of stain without doing your research can mean re-staining the fence in just several years. Another thing to consider is the color of the stain and how it will look on your fence.  If possible, try and get a sample of the stain prior to applying it to the whole fence, this way you won’t regret spending all that time and hard earned money and in the end have to   re-stain the entire fence.

Finally, it is time to stain the fence.  It is a good idea to wait several weeks if the wood is new for the treatments to settle in. If you live in a wet or humid climate like the Michigan, allow time for the wood to dry in warmer weather.  Make sure to apply plenty of stain to the fence and paint away!

If you need a wood fence to stain, please contact Anchor Fence for a free onsite or online estimate.

Stop Dogs from Digging Under Your Fence

If you are a dog owner, you may have seen your furry friend digging in the yard or at the base of a fence.  Dogs dig because, well, they are dogs.  They get bored, want to escape or just like to dig.  Stopping a dog from digging can be challenging and a dog that digs not only creates unsightly holes, but can create costly damage to fence, plants, lawns, etc.

There are quite a few solutions to keep a dog from digging under a fence.  The right solution may vary for each situation. You may want to test out a few different ones to see which works best for your dog and your landscaping.

Strategically Place Rocks/boulders

You can place rocks around the areas of the fence where the dog likes to dig.  This will block the dog from digging and once they try digging they won’t have any luck.

Fill in the holes with rocks or dirt

Depending on your dog you can try filling in the holes with rocks or dirt.  Dirt may just encourage them to keep digging and provide constant work for you… it just depends on the dog.  You can also fill in the holes with gravel which makes it harder for the dog to dig.

Train Your Dog

If you have the time and knowledge, train your dog. If you catch them digging, stop them and correct the behavior.  This is your best bet because it fixes the source of the problem and will stop your dog from digging even if you move.

Hire a Professional

If it is too late and your dog has destroyed your fence or has dug up some fence posts give Anchor Fence a call (313)937-0101, we can fix that for you.

Tips on Removing Old Fence

If you have an old wood or chain link fence that has been on your property for a while, chances are portions of it are in bad shape, falling down and not salvageable.  You will most likely want to tear down the fence for replacement at some point because it can be an eyesore. But before you get out your hammer and gloves, there are a few things you should do to make sure the project is completed safely and properly. There are several steps you should take before making any changes to your property. Some are legal and others are precautions. When you get started with your tear-out, you will want to take the proper safety procedures to make sure you and no one else gets hurt.

Before any tear-down is performed, it is extremely important to make sure the fence is your property. If you are unfamiliar with the history of your property and you moved in after your neighbors were already there, then that fence you are thinking about removing may not be yours. The other problem, some installation projects are done without city approval and could possibly be on your neighbor’s property line. If you do not own the fence, then you should probably give some thought to installing a fence that is inside your property line. Your other option is to discuss the situation with your neighbor and see if they would be willing to tear down the fence.

Regardless of where you live, you should always contact Miss Dig before you start digging. Your fence posts are installed about 4′ into the ground and may have been there for a very long time. If the utility companies have done any installation of lines near your fence, then you will need to know that before you start digging up fence posts. The last thing you want to do is get fined because you knocked out phone service to half the neighborhood when you took up one of your old fence posts. It is also a good idea to know where your sprinkler lines are and any private underground line that may be on your property, as Miss Dig does not mark these lines.

It is important to have a plan when removing fence posts. If you are unfamiliar with how to do it, then it may be best to hire Anchor Fence. Properly installed fences use concrete and gravel to anchor the fence posts. If you are unsure as to how to remove them, then you could get hurt and cause significant property damage. If you are confident in your ability to remove the fence yourself, then make sure that you have all of the right equipment to get the job done. If you need a professional to get the job done for you and installation after, call Anchor Fence (313) 937-0101. We will be more than happy to help you.
