How soon can you install my fence?
Installation time-frames depend on the type of fence being installed as well as the time of season purchased.
Projects requiring permits and material fabrication typically take around 5 weeks to be ready for install. Projects not requiring permits and/or material fabrication can be started as soon as 2-4 weeks.
In the peak of the busy season, projects can take up-to 8+ weeks to be started. We will always be transparent about expected start dates.
How long will my fence installation take?
Most fence installations will be completed over the course of a week, consisting of 2-3 working days. These are usually non-consecutive working days to allow time for cement to cure.
Some exceptions to this would be custom size gates that will be ordered after the gate posts are installed and could extend the completion of your project by 2-3 weeks (temporary gates are available upon request during this period).
Do you price-match other fence companies or contractors?
We do not match lower prices. Our customers buy from us because they want the assurance of working with a trusted company and that they are going to receive quality materials and service.

Do you know where my property lines are?
You can refer to your mortgage survey or any other property survey for details on the exact location of your property line.
If you do not have either of these documents, one may be available through your mortgage company, local building department, or builder.
If you do not have access to a property survey, We can refer you to a surveyor that works with our customers. This service typically costs between $900 – $1500.
We will place your fence where instructed. If you provide a property survey to us, we will use that to determine the fence location along with your instruction/designation. We do not, however, reveal property markers during the installation unless a property survey is ordered through Paramount Fence.
Will you obtain a fence permit for my project?
Yes. We will apply for your permit after receiving all documents that are required by your local building department. Such documents may include:
- Mortgage survey
- Neighbor(s) signature forms
- Neighborhood association approval (you must obtain this)
- Signature notarization
We will not install your fence without a required permit, as that is an unethical practice; please do not ask.
Do you call ‘missdig’ to have underground utilities marked?
Yes. As part of our project planning, we will contact MissDig and have all underground utilities located and marked prior to beginning your installation.
This process does not take place until approximately one (1) week prior to your installation.
MissDig locate specialists DO NOT mark any personal utility lines that were not installed by the utility provider. Some examples of personal utility lines that are not marked by MissDig include:
- Electric line running from house to garage
- Gas line running to outdoor barbecue grill
- Low voltage electrical wiring to landscape devices
- Electric lines running to outdoor lighting
How deep do you set fence posts?
Typically 38”-42” deep. There are two important things that we consider when setting your fence posts in cement:
- Making sure we get below frost level to prevent your posts from heaving up during the winter
- Making sure we meet all local fence post ordinances
