Let’s Talk Questions.

We have composed a list of common questions we are asked pertaining to fence and gate projects! Check it out!

Do I need a permit for my new fence?

If your residential fence is to be installed in Bartholomew county you do not need a permit! Most counties do not require a permit for fence structures. However, you can confirm your specific county’s permit requirements with your Fence Boss estimator.

Do I need to have my utilities marked?

As a company, Fence Boss is required to hold an active locate before digging on your property. We will call Indiana 811 and have your public utilities marked before your install. Public utilities commonly include cable, water, electric and gas. Homeowners or contractors are required to have privately ran lines marked. Homeowners should also have sprinkler heads clearly marked.

What is the warranty on my fence product?

All Fence Boss fences have some type of warranty. Warranty is the BEST in our Better. Best. BOSS. motto. We aim to choose products with the best warranties in the fence industry. In fact, our vinyl manufacturer, CertainTeed, covers materials and labor if a warranty claim is needed within the first five years. Fence Boss installers are trained to install fence products by manufacturer specifications, so we do not void warranties with improper installation.

Will my fence be set in concrete?

No matter the type of fence selected, every post is set in concrete for maximum stability.

What are my options for gate hardware?

Fence Boss partners with manufacturers who supply the worlds most trusted locks, latches, and hinges. There are options for key-able, lockable, and self-closing hardware!

If you have more questions about your Fence Boss install or a future fence project reach out to Fence Boss by phone, message or stop by our physical location!

Tips for Saving!

Let’s talk cost! We think most would agree, discussing budget is the least exciting aspect of any new home project. We want to share a few best kept tips for saving on your fence system!

Tip #1 Ask the Neighbors!

The simplest way to reduce cost is to eliminate footage. Often times neighbors will plan a new fence project at the same time, so they can share fence rows. If your neighbor already has a fence, ask to connect your new fence to their existing fence; eliminating the need for a side or back row of fence! Check out how these Fence Boss neighbors designed their yard spaces to share vinyl fence runs.

Tip #2 Reduce Gates!

Most homeowners don’t realize the cost of adding an additional gate. When reducing cost is necessary, we recommend cutting back on gates. Most homeowners with standard sized residential yards are happy with one to two gates!

Tip #3 Choose Products Wisely!

Most industries have faced continuous fluctuating prices on raw materials. Ask the fence company you are working with if they can recommend a fence product that is on a downfall in cost, rather than an uptick. Our Fence Boss estimators can help you navigate, which residential fence product is best for your needs!

Automated Ranch Style Gate Installation

Fence Boss installs and provides a broad range of security and containment products, so we are always excited at the opportunity to complete a custom build project.

We were contacted by customers who envisioned an automated ranch style gate. Our estimators helped design and find products to complete their vision! After consideration, a Digger Specialties aluminum powder coated cross buck style gate was chosen to be installed on 10×10 Timbers with beveled ends adjacent to the main support beams. The gate was to be powered by a Lift Master residential gate operator.

Check out the details of the gate install!

Curious to see how the gate operates? Watch until the end!

A special thanks to the Fence Boss customers who patiently waited for their gate installation. The custom design required products from three separate Fence Boss suppliers. We aim to meet Better. Best. BOSS. standards with every installation.

Good Fence Makes Good Sense

Choosing the right fence for your outdoor space will add more than ROI value to your property.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, as homeowners spent more time outdoors, the demand for residential fence systems increased. Particularly, the demand for privacy fence increased as property owners recognized the need to keep children and pets safe while working remotely. Fences have become an important feature of many outdoor living space designs, a new modern living trend expected to continue for the years to come, as hardscape options continue to grow.

Classic fence systems in aluminum and steel are timeless staples and appreciation for a gorgeous wood fence never wanes. Although classic fence styles change slightly over time, the frequent request for wrought iron fences highlights how consumers have common interests in fence products. Today’s wrought iron fence combines the reliability of a classic fence system made of aluminum or steel with an ornamental flair and is available in a variety of heights, colors and finishes to meet every design and functional need.

Manufacturers and contractors consider the latest home design trends and collaborate to offer products that will meet practical needs and compliment design trends. Notably, vinyl fence has grown in popularity since its introduction to
the market in the late 1970s and PVC technology has improved and “yellow”, or otherwise discolored, vinyl fence is a problem of the past in most cases. The technological advances are significant enough that property owners can enjoy
peace of mind with their vinyl fence purchase.

Most warranties are limited lifetime, and some manufacturers offer labor and materials costs reimbursement for a reasonable time frame after your initial purchase. Consumers can choose from an array of colors, textures and designs. Additionally, there are PVC systems that offer sound barrier and impact resistance elements. Custom caps, lighting and key lock hardware are added features when design is as important as function.

In the market for a new fence? Here are a few tips and considerations:

  • 2021 fence trends include horizontal privacy fence designs, outdoor lighting on fencing, laser cut metal fencing, mixed materials fence systems, ex: wood and metal laser cut panels, vinyl and laser cut panels, aluminum framework with PVC infill, and any fence system that is low maintenance. CertainTeed, a leading vinyl fence manufacturer produces a textured “CertaGrain” PVC fence and offers molded panel systems with a realistic rock or wood appearance.
  • A fence company with trained employees will ensure your fence is installed according to manufacturer specifications, an important consideration for purposes. Avoid companies who sub out installations to contractors. They may not be experienced with the product you purchased.
  • Make sure the fence company representative is knowledgeable regarding fence zoning codes and requirements. Finding out about code violations after an install is no good for anyone.
  • Make sure to purchase products with a manufacturer warranty and a workmanship guarantee.
  • Request quotes for several types of fence so that you can evaluate the good, better, and best products for your space.
  • Plan your system based on needs first and then design. Privacy vs semi-privacy, wood vs vinyl and steel vs aluminum are all important design and function factors to consider. Most companies will have staff knowledgeable enough to guide you as you evaluate your fence options.
  • Determine your maintenance willingness early in quote process. Ornamental and vinyl are maintenance free but wood and galvanized chain link will require some annual maintenance.

Rest assured, the design options are limitless and the range of colors and finishes is wider than ever. Today’s product market makes purchasing a fence an exciting and satisfying experience and property owners will enjoy the benefits of a quality fence in more ways than one.

Out with the Old; In with the New!

At Fence Boss we have Better. Best. BOSS employees! Our crew is not afraid to get down and dirty during fence removals and installs. We often have to prepare for a new installation by removing and hauling away existing fence systems.

Once the fence system is removed the new fence run is clearly marked and the crew pays special attention to the location of all underground utilities. For most installs Fence Boss uses a mini-skid steer to dig fence post holes because there is some truth to working smarter and not harder! Each Fence Boss post is set 2′-3′ deep and secured with concrete. Some companies dig small diameter holes and use shorter posts to avoid the labor involved in digging deeper. We don’t cheat specs. The stability of a fence system starts with a solid post set.

After post holes are dug to the appropriate depth, determined by material type and manufacturer specifications, it is time to set posts! Depending on the ground conditions the concrete needs to cure around fence posts for 24-48 hours. Appropriate hole depth, correct hole diameter, and the right amount of time for concrete to cure ensures fence posts will not shift during framing process or heave later on.

For wood and vinyl fence systems framing and installation of the fence pickets can often be completed within the same work day. During a wood fence installation the pickets are commonly installed two inches above the ground and follow the terrain. We stick build every wood and vinyl system because stick built systems out perform pre-assembled panel type systems and they look gorgeous in comparison.

Every Fence Boss project is a team effort! Fence Boss employees are trained to follow manufacturer and industry specs to ensure the BEST products are followed by BOSS installs. On site at each project the crew respectfully checks each others work to insure our service is BETTER and we are always evaluating our finished systems to keep our focus on improving installation and training processes. We finish every project with a BOSS overview and cleanup of the project area.

Our focus will always be BETTER.BEST.BOSS so that we can get it right every time and doing everything possible to make corrections when we fall short.

Meet Hannah

Hello there! Hannah here. I’m a 22 year old wife, college student, dog mom, creative, and Office Manager of a fence company, owned by a woman (Jami)! Yep! You read that right, I said fence. When I tell people I manage a fence company too often an eye brow raises and the “did you say fence?” question immediately follows. I can’t lie, you absolutely will not find me with a shovel in my hand and dirt on my jeans (yes I get to wear jeans to work).

More often, I am found furiously typing away in my office, filming a live video, or shopping for a giveaway! My Fence Boss goal is to light a creative spark and bring a personal touch to the very male dominated construction industry! Yes..I do standard Office Manager duties, pay bills, manage employees, file one million receipts (truly). But I find the most fulfillment in chatting with over 3,000 of my favorite Fence Boss friends on social media!

What will I blog about? I hope to share and inspire. I will share stories of our Fence Boss projects, Fence Boss customer experiences, and work life as a BOSS woman in a male dominated industry. I also have a few tricks up my sleeve in regards to social media growth. I hope with new connections and learning through my Fence Boss work experience I can inspire you to hustle and develop a Better. Best. BOSS. attitude in all you do!

Thanks for joining me! Talk to you soon!
