Why should I go with a fence company that has a physical location?
Fence companies with no physical office building are typically a crew, or crews, working out of the company owner’s house or storage unit. This type of company has only been in business for a short period of time and lacks proper experience as well as reputation. Additionally, any warranty they provide in only as useful as long as they stay in business. If they do not have a physical office building, then they are likely not an established and reputable company.
Anchor Fence Inc. has over 120 years of experience and has been in business since 1892. Anchor Fence Inc. also has liability insurance and workman’s compensation, which this type of small business typically does not have.
How deep do you set fence posts?
Anchor Fence Inc. cements posts according to city/county or building codes. Typically in 42″ deep concrete footings for a strong durable hold!
Who takes care of getting permits and calling Miss Dig?
Anchor Fence Inc. can take care of these tasks for you or you have the option to handle them yourself. However, you should never pull the permit yourself because then you will be responsible for any damages or incidents that occur during that project such as calling for your own post hole inspection or final inspection. These are typically the practices of non-reputable contractors. Anchor Fence does pull permits for your cities but the customer must submit ALL necessary paperwork that your city requires if not done so, the job could prolong. Anchor Fence calls Miss Dig when the job is getting ready to begin as they stake your yards underground utility lines as we cannot see what is underground. It is wise to contact your local building department and ask what their preference is.

Anchor Fence does NOT establish property lines and are NOT responsible for where the location of fence is going shown by customer.
