Best Ways To Maintain Your Fence

Here at American Design Fence we only install the highest quality fences NJ has to offer. But as with anything, severe weather and pesky animals can damage your fence. Luckily, there are some very simple tips and tricks for keeping your fence looking brand new and we’re here to share them with you…

Visually Inspect For Animals

Animals love to find ways to make your fence their new home – especially bee’s (yikes!). Every spring and summer, make sure to visually inspect your fence and make sure you do not see any holes. Even small holes in your fence could mean a big nest. You’ll want to take the necessary steps to safely rid the animals of your fence.

Check The Stain or Paint

One of the most important things you can do to keep your fence looking brand new is to stain/paint it. Staining your fence provides more protection because a stain actually goes farther into the fence, whereas paint stays only on the top layer. By staining your fence you will not have to deal with chipped paint either.

Replace Broken Pieces

Often times a fence can break due to harsh weather (especially here in New Jersey where we get some pretty big hurricanes). If your fence breaks, don’t worry. Here at American Design Fence, we have all the necessary materials to fix your broken fence. Give us a call and we’ll be over to make it look brand new again!

Remove Mold

Mold can really do a number on your fence. That’s why we recommend investing is a power washer to easily clean off any mold and debris to keep your fence looking great.

Fence Companies: What to Ask For Before Purchasing a Fence in NJ

Choosing the best fence company can be tough for a lot of people. There’s a lot to consider!

We noticed a lot of first time fence buyers wondering what they should ask prior making a purchase. If you’re one of those people, this blog post is just for you.

Today we’re going to go over everything you should look for when searching for the right fence companies in NJ.

“How much experience do they have?”

This is a big question that a lot of consumers forget to ask but it’s very important. Experience in the fencing industry will tell you a lot about how good the craftsmen are. If they’re only a few years old, you might want to pass. Look for companies like American Design Fence that have over 15 years experience.

“Are they licensed and insured?”

Making sure that the company you hire is license and insured is also very important. If something goes wrong and someone is injured, you want to make sure that there are no liabilities on your end. Plus, these things tell you that they are a legal, professional company operating in New Jersey.

“Are they reliable?”

In todays day and age, with sites like Yelp, it’s easy to see company reviews. However, be careful because the reviews you see can sometimes be from other companies  trying to damage the reputation of a competitor. This unfortunately has happened to us.

“How big is their selection of fencing products?”

Often times fence companies cannot afford to carry all of the popular styles –vinyl, aluminum, chain link, etc. Make sure to ask if they carry your preferred style in stock. That way you don’t have to wait weeks (or even months) for them to have your fence shipped from the distributor. As one of NJ’s largest fence companies, we carry the largest selection in the state. This is because we have warehouses full of the highest quality fence supplies.

“Do they serve my area?”

Even though New Jersey is a small state, a lot of fence companies only serve a small portion of it. When searching for the right company, make sure you find out if they serve your area. American Design Fence proudly serves the entire state of NJ – no job is to far away for us.

There you have it, the five questions you should ask every fence company before buying from them!
