What types of fences do you install in the Memphis area?

We install many types of fencing, for both commercial and residential properties. Common examples of materials are wood, chain link, PVC and ornamental iron. For more information see our commercial and residential fence pages.

How long does it take to install a fence?

It depends on your total footage and the style of fence, but for standard wood fence with an average sized yard of approximately 250 feet, your job should only take about 2 days, weather permitting.

Who is responsible for the locate and permit before the work begins?

Bluff City Fence will call in the Tennessee 811 locate to have the public utility lines marked before we begin your fence work. This is required for all jobs that require digging on your property. If a permit is required for your fence work, we will also pull that with your city before the work begins.

Do I need to know the fence code for my city before my estimate is done?

Bluff City Fence Estimators will be able to quote your fence work per the fence code for your area, so you don’t have to worry about knowing that. However, something Bluff City Fence will not have information about is the HOA requirements for your neighborhood. If you have an HOA, please check with them before calling for your quote to make sure the fence fits with regulations, as sometimes HOA requirements are more specific than what the city requires.

Are your fences customizable in terms of style, height, and color?

Yes, your fence is customizable! There are multiple styles of fencing for each material, and we’re more than happy to go over your options when you’ve decided which type of fence you’re ready to go forward with. As far as height and color, those may vary for whatever material you’ve chosen or depending on the fence code for your area, but our Estimators will go over those with you when providing your free quote.

What is the warranty or guarantee on your fence installations?

Bluff City Fence offers a 1 year warranty on our craftsmanship for our fence installations. We are unable to warranty natural fence products due to weathering, warping, and bowing being an unavoidable process for natural products.

What factors should I consider when selecting a fence contractor in Memphis?

A big factor to consider is whether or not your contractor is licensed and insured, as not every fence company is. You should also consider the warranty a company offers, if they offer one at all.

Are there any financing options available for fence installations?

Bluff City Fence does offer financing for our residential customers with jobs that are at least $2000 or more. This is a 12 month, no interest financing option with zero credit checks. Our financing option is only available for ACH draft.

Can you explain the differences between different fence materials and their benefits?

The three most common fence materials are wood, chain link, and iron. All three have their benefits – wood fence provides privacy and offers unique styles that can increase the curb appeal of your home, chain link fence is a more economical option and is great for commercial properties, and PVC and iron fence are a long-lasting materials that require less maintenance, although they are more expensive.

What are the most popular styles of wooden fences for residential properties?

When it comes to enhancing the aesthetics and privacy of residential properties, wooden fences offer timeless charm and versatility. Among the variety of wooden fence styles, three stand out as the most popular choices. Dog ear privacy fences provide a classic and sturdy design that ensures seclusion for your outdoor space. Cap and trim fences add an elegant touch with their decorative top rail, lending an extra layer of style to your property. Meanwhile, shadowbox fences strike a balance between privacy and aesthetics, as they offer an attractive, alternating panel design that allows both air and light to filter through. These three popular wooden fence styles not only provide security but also add a touch of warmth and character to your home’s surroundings.

How does the POSTMASTER system work? What are the components?

The standard wooden fence is installed with 4×4 wooden posts, which will naturally weather and rot over time. Postmaster fence system is built with steel posts with a design that gives the finished fence a sleek and seamless look without the bulk that traditional steel fences have. The hidden steel posts withstand winds of up to 73 mph and won’t warp, shrink, or rot like wood posts. For more information, visit our POSTMASTER page.

What are the benefits of staining and sealing a fence?

Staining and sealing a fence can help extend the life of your wood fence or deck. The Wood Defender stain that we use is an oil-based formula that penetrates the wood and protects it from the effects of sun, water, and mildew. For more information, visit our Wood Defender page.

How often should I stain and seal my fence?

You should stain your fence every 2-3 years, depending on the weather, in order to offer the best protection to your fence and extend the life of the wood material.

Can staining and sealing rejuvenate an older or worn-out fence?

It is possible for Bluff City Fence to come out and clean your existing weathered fence with a solution before staining and sealing it, returning it to a newer look; if the fence is too deteriorated, however, it may not be possible to clean and the fence would need to be replaced for best results.
