Questions for Tulsa Fencing Contractors
What type of lumber / wood does Fence Company of Tulsa use?
For our pickets, we utilize #1 Western Red Cedar by Alta Forrest Products. We also offer pre-stained Douglas Fir as an option for the pickets. The main distinction between cedar lumber is their habitat, which will impact quality. Western Red Cedar by Alta Forest Products stands out for its exceptional durability and natural resistance to decay, making it the superior choice for building long-lasting fences. Unlike other cedar varieties, its unique grain and rich coloration provide not only a structurally sound barrier but also an aesthetically pleasing addition to any outdoor space.
Do I need to call Okie to mark gas, water, and electric lines?
No. Fence Company of Tulsa is required by law to contact Okie and let them know that we will be digging on your property. A few days before your scheduled installation, they will mark all electric, gas, and cable lines.
Does Fence Company of Tulsa locate sprinkler and septic lines?
No, we do not have the capacity to detect sprinkler or septic lines. It is the homeowner’s duty to notify us if there are any private water pipes that may not be detected by our equipment. Fence Company of Tulsa is not responsible for any damage done to your lines, even if they are marked. By hand digging around any client-marked locations on the property, we will do everything possible to avoid striking the lines, but it is not a promise that they will be unharmed.
Although our staff may carry materials to repair minor PVC line breaks, if the damage is beyond their ability, it is the homeowner’s responsibility to seek out a landscaping professional for a more comprehensive repair. If a line is hit, it is the responsibility of the crew to contact a supervisor. However, sometimes defective lines are not discovered until the sprinklers are activated the next time. After the installation crew has set posts, we recommend that the homeowner walk the fence line to ensure that they are correctly positioned. At this time, we want you to turn on your sprinklers to ensure that all zones are operational.
Does the homeowner need to do any preliminary preparations before installation?
Yes, any plants or other objects that are leaning against or hanging from the fence must be removed. The following items would be classified as constructively disruptive:
- vines or vegetation
- tree limbs
- decorations attached to the fence
- bird feeders
- flower beds with stone or rock that are in opposition to the fence
The standard guideline is that each crew member should have 2′ or more clear space on each side of the fence. If vegetation has not been cleared away and space made available for the workers, we will postpone any installation until the homeowner has met this standard.
I have several neighbors on both sides of me, how do I explain to them the installation?
Always contact the neighbors who would be affected by a new fence’s construction. Before scheduling an appointment for an estimate, we recommend contacting them first. Neighbors may have different requirements or expectations for the project’s scope. They might also want to do more than simply the shared fence. Meeting beforehand will allow each neighbor to state any concerns and demands that may influence the cost and terms of the project.
It is the homeowner’s duty to notify each neighbor as to the installation date and what type of fence will be put up. Please be informed that installation might take up to three to five business days. Keep in mind that if your project includes the removal of an old fence, it will be exposed to the other neighbor’s yards for many days while it is being built. This may be a problem for any pet owners. They’ll need to make arrangements to either keep the dogs inside or kennel them during the duration of the work. Please note that Fence Company of Tulsa is not responsible for any kennel expenses during this period. If the project is delayed for any reason, Fence Company of Tulsa will not be financially responsible for additional kennel expenditures.
My neighbors will be paying a portion of the cost, is every neighboring property charged individually by the Fence Company of Tulsa?
The homeowner who contacted us regarding the project is responsible for the entire cost, according to Fence Company of Tulsa’s policy. In the estimate, Fence Company of Tulsa will offer a split cost for each neighbor, but receipt of payment will be the homeowners’ alone. After 10 days of receiving the invoice, Fence Company of Tulsa will demand that the bill be paid in full. Disputes over payment and split costs should be handled between the homeowners and not through Fence Company of Tulsa.
