1. Does a fence add value to your home?

Many features of a property add (or detract) from the value. Whether or not a fence will impact the assessed value of a property is debatable. However, a fence can add real value if the prospective owner actually needs one. Even if it doesn’t increase the value of the property, having a quality fence in good condition will not hurt the sale of a property for prospective buyers that are looking for homes with existing fences, but an unattractive or degrading fence could negatively impact the value or sellability of the property when the prospective owner considers the additional expense a new fence will add to the cost of the home after its purchase. On the other hand, if the prospective owner needs a fence and a Trex fence is already on the property, it can add value to the sale of the home both in terms of real dollars and appeal. A Trex fence requires virtually no maintenance and will last 25+ years. Even an older Trex fence can give the new owner the peace of mind that they will not need to budget for painting, staining, or replacing rotting materials. The name brand alone is a selling feature and the fact that the warranty is transferable from the original owner to the next owner adds even more appeal. Homeowners that purchase Trex fences often look beyond the value of the fence for their own enjoyment and look to the potential of increasing the value of their home for a prospective buyer.

4. Does Trex make gates?

As the distributing partner for Trex Fencing, FDS Distributors fabricates gates out of the composite material made-to-order. We offer both standard and custom sizes, so whatever sized gate you are needing, FDS Distributors has you covered.

 

5. How deep should a fence post hole be?

A fence post hole should be deep enough to ensure the post won’t be displaced by wind or other forces in normal conditions. For a 6-foot tall privacy fence, that depth will usually be at least 24″ and can exceed 36″ if the area where the fence is installed has a deep frost line. Typically, your fence installer will know the best depth for a fence post in your particular area since soil and climate can have a dramatic impact on the best depth. Most municipalities have guidance or requirements. Check the permit requirements in your area to see if this is the case. The city or county building and planning departments oftentimes can also provide advice on post-hole depth.

 

6. How do you install Trex fencing?

The best way to install Trex Fencing is by referring to our official installation guides and resources. Installing Trex Fencing is considered a DIY project, and most customers find it to be relatively easier than most wood fence installations.

 

7. How long does a wood fence last?

The average life of a wood fence is anywhere around 10-15 years. It is important to remember, though, that a wood fence requires a lot in both time and money to keep it maintained. In order to get the most life out of your wood fence, you will need to repaint, restain, and make necessary repairs about every 3-5 years.

 

8. How much does a 6 foot privacy fence cost?

The cost of a 6-foot privacy fence depends on the type of material used and if you are installing it yourself or paying someone else to do it. Where you are located can also make a difference, primarily for the cost of labor. For materials, a simple 6-foot wood privacy fence can cost as low as $25 afoot, although these types of wood fences won’t last very long. If you upgrade to w high-quality, pre-stained wood, you may pay $40+ per foot for materials. Vinyl fences also have ranges depending on quality, color, and brand.

A cheap vinyl 6-foot privacy fence can be similar to a cheap wood fence in price, whereas a high-end vinyl fence can cost more than $50 per foot. Trex composite 6-foot privacy fence costs about $55 per foot for materials. Since it is the sturdiest low-maintenance alternative to wood fencing, it tends to be the best overall value if you are looking for a long-lasting fence. For installation, you can expect to add $10-$25/ft for any style of fence in most areas of the country and more than that in high-cost markets.

10. Is composite fencing worth the cost?

Composite fencing is worth the cost, as long as it fits what you are looking for in a fence. Composite fencing, specifically Trex, offers a beautiful wood aesthetic, without maintenance.
