- How long does a typical installation take?
First Fence of Georgia installs many different types of fences for both residential and commercial customers. There are many factors that impact installation time frames. The type of fence, length, site conditions and weather are only a few of the factors. Generally, a typical residential fence installation takes 1-5 business days to install.
- Do you work on the weekends?
First Fence believes in servicing our customers when it is convenient for them. Although our office is not open on the weekends, we do schedule our Estimators on Saturdays to meet with our clients to provide free estimates.
- Do you have a per foot price?
We believe in giving you the most value possible for your fence project. Since using a price per foot is designed to protect fence companies in a worst case scenario, using price per foot often penalizes many customers that frankly deserve better. We take the time to calculate each proposal on its own merit thus allowing us to be as competitive as possible for our clients. Beware of companies that use price per foot!
- Do you recommend us doing a survey prior to installing my fence?
Our company has installed over 20,000 fences since we opened our doors so we are very good at it. On the other hand, we have never surveyed a property. We jokingly say that a fence is not like a couch…we cannot slide it over to a different location once installed. We install fences based on where the customers instruct us to place the fence. We recommend our customers contract with a licensed land surveyor to locate the property pins unless they are 100% sure of their property lines. We cannot be held responsible should any portion of the fence be installed outside of the property lines.

- Do I need to be present for my estimate?
First Fence does require that we meet with the homeowner at the property to assure that we understand exactly the type of fence you are looking for and need. Some fence options are better than others for keeping your small children and pets safe.

We enjoy reviewing fence options with the hope that we identify the best fence option that meets your needs and your budget. This is a huge investment for a homeowner so we want to make sure you are completely satisfied with your selection.
- Do you do handrails? Decks? Landscaping?
