Salt Lake CIty’s Frequently Asked Fencing Questions

1) Who is responsible for finding property lines/pins?

The “Property Owner” is responsible for determining where the property lines/pins are and making sure the fence is laid out on their property. If you are concerned about the property lines/pins, the best thing to do is have a survey done. If replacing an existing fence, we will normally install your new fence where the old fence was located, unless specifically instructed by you to move the fence to a different location.

2) Does Superior Vinyl Fence locate the underground utilities or do I do that?

You are responsible for informing us of any existing private utilities. If you have any of these lines, please mark them and let us know before we begin the installation of your fence. We will call Blue Stakes and have them mark the underground public utility lines.

3) Does your crew trim the bushes or tree limbs that crowd the fence line?

It is the home owner’s responsibility to provide our crew access to the fence line. You are asked to trim the bushes and tree limbs so that we can build your fence without obstructions. Our employees are experts at building fences, but not necessarily at trimming your trees and shrubs. We will need about 3 feet of access to the fence area and clear access to install your fence.

4) Will you notify the neighbors that the fence is being installed/replaced and when?

We will communicate directly with you, our customer. We would encourage you communicate with your neighbors so that they know we are coming and when.

5) Do I have to be home during the fence installation?

No, you can go about your day while we are completing the installation of your new fence. Most of our clients are not home while we work.

6) How is my fence project scheduled?

Your project will be added to the soonest available day on our schedule once we have received 1) your Initial deposit and 2) your fence materials are available. The length of time your fence will take to complete will depend on 1) type and complexity of your fence, and 2) any specific customizations you have requested. Normally fence work will begin aproximately 1-2 weeks after your deposit is received. On our inital visit we will tear out your exising fence(if applicable) and set your new fence posts.The concrete for the fence posts will need 3-5 days to set. We will then return and complete the installation. Your fence will be open during the installation period so please make arrangements for your pets, etc…

7) Do I need to mark my sprinkler lines and have them cut and capped if they are in the way of the new fence – or will Superior Vinyl Fence do that?

Yes, you will need to mark the sprinkler lines and have them repaired/moved either before or after the fence has been installed.

8) How can I find out how much a new fence will cost?

That’s easy, just contact us and we will come out to perform a visual inspection of your project and provide you with an Free Estimate. We are always happy to provide pricing for specific fencing projects. Because there are always many variables that are specific to your fencing project (location, soil conditions, topography of the lot, underground utilities, obstacles in the fence line, bushes/trees that need trimming, etc…)  pricing a fence construction project is never as easy as “We charge X dollars a foot”. If I were to call a company and they just tossed out a number for each foot of fence over the phone without seeing the property or knowing about any of these variables, I would be VERY skeptical about them. Are they going to quote me this low price over the phone, then start the work and look for ways to increase the cost??
