Prices on fences are dependent on the material you choose and the exact style you order. We provide quotes for free! Simply reach out to our team through our online form or give us a call and our team of friendly, experienced staff will be glad to walk you through the process and plan a consultation.
We encourage you to speak with one of our fence experts before focusing solely on price! There are cheaper, very poor quality fence materials available that will not last. We don't use them. There are also very inexperienced and unprofessional fence installers who continually cut corners and don't stand behind their work, regardless of what their so-called-warranty says.
Fences must stand up to Delaware's high winds, harsh weather, and physical abuse from animals, kids, and gardeners. Shopping for the cheapest fence is usually not the best way to make a decision about the fence you want to protect and beautify your home and the people you care about.
The best way to get an accurate estimate for your fence installation date is to call our team of friendly fence consultants!
Once you approve the estimate, we can often install residential fences in most of the Delaware area within 3 to 6 weeks, but please check with our office for your specific project. There are times throughout the year where that timeframe may be less or more.
There are other things that can delay the start of a fencing project. If you select a specific type of material, post options, or decorative options that need to be special ordered, that will often delay the installation of your fence. We will help you to identify, in advance, any of your choices that are known to be likely to cause these additional delays, and we will offer alternatives whenever possible.
Our fence experts will gladly come to your property and take all the measurements you need! We are a full-service fence company that specializes in residential fence installation; you do not need to work hard to get a great new fence.
Fencing is often priced and sold by SECTIONS, not by linear feet! Even when the linear footage is included specifically on price estimate, the total number of sections is a factor in this pricing. So, "price per linear foot" is only a rough estimate and rarely represents the actual cost of the finished fence!
This is a very interesting difference that we would love to explore and explain to you if you'd like to speak with one of our fence experts further. Be aware, "price per linear foot" is a ploy that many unprofessional fence installers in the Delaware area use!

We stand behind our work and offer a 3-year workmanship warranty on all residential fences we install.

All of our high-quality fencing is proven to last in the Delaware region. The best type of fence for you is really a matter of priorities, style, and budget.

Whether you're looking for privacy and security or a decorative touch, we have excellent residential fencing solutions that have proven popular and durable with your friends and neighbors across the entire Delaware region.
Here is a basic guideline that we use to help people get started making the best selection:
Every local municipality has a separate set of requirements when it comes to building permits, and that includes residential fencing. Sometimes the specific height of the fence, placement of the fence, or purpose of the fence can impact the need for a permit. There are also HOA considerations in some areas.
When you decide to work with Backyard Works, we will handle all of the permitting necessary for your fence project! We have installed many residential fences in just about every possible area across Delaware, so we are happy to answer these sorts of questions.
At Backyard Works, we pride ourselves on high-quality fence installations and workmanship. Therefore, we install fences for the majority of the year aside from a short break during certain periods of winter weather because of the challenges we face when attempting to install fences during these particularly cold conditions.
There are certain times during the year when our installation schedule is busier, but our fence team always does its best to get you the fence you need right when you need it. Reach out today to find out what our current schedule looks like! We always have room for one more fence!
Fence placement is ultimately the responsibility of you, the customer. Moving a fence after it's already been installed can be costly. It's never a bad idea to get a survey to be safe. However, in many cases we are more than happy to install your fence without an official survey, especially if the property lines are clear and well-marked. While a survey is not required, it can greatly reduce the chance of dealing with the headache of moving your newly installed fence.
We make it easy to get an estimate for your residential fence! You can simply reach out to our office staff through our online contact form or call us and our friendly fence pros will walk you through the process.
One of our experienced team members will come out to your property and take detailed measurements and will then provide you with a detailed estimate for your new residential fence. We'll be happy to help you design your fence and get the perfect solution for you!
Fencing is one of the easiest industries to "get into" for start-up businesses and novice laborers. For these people who are looking to make a few extra dollars installing fences, a shovel, a level, and a string line may be all they need.
As a result, there are many individuals and/or companies who show up in Delaware, install residential fences for a short time, then disappear. We see it all the time. Beware! You only want to work with a fully licensed and insured fencing contractor in the Delaware area.
Here are some of the main pitfalls of working with non-professionals:
The Residential Fence Warranty is Void
If the individual or company that installed your residential fence isn't still around, the workmanship warranty on the fence and the gates is worthless. Additionally, some manufacturers won't warranty their fence material if it was damaged during installation or installed improperly, which is very common with non-professionals.
The Fence Almost Certainly Won't Last As Long
As a professional fencing contractor, our team of installers undergoes rigorous training and constant professional supervision. We are dedicated to improving our knowledge and skills of the best fencing materials and the best fence installation techniques in order to maximize the strength and life of your fence. Companies that simply install fences as something they do "on the side" usually have no idea how much they actually don't know about residential fencing or what is best for you and your property.
Putting Your Property at Risk
Installing a residential fence in Delaware is actually somewhat risky. Sudden, harsh weather during the installation of a fence can blow materials, damaging your home. We've seen concrete splatter up onto cars or drip down beautiful driveways or walkways as buckets of wet concrete are transported. Deep tire tracks sinking into your grass is another common issue. The secondary damage to homes and yards while installing fences by untrained labor is a very common thing.
Additionally, anyone hurt on your property while they are working puts you at risk! If you hire an unlicensed or uninsured contractor, you may be liable and your homeowners insurance may deny payment!
At first glance, hiring a novice to install your fence may appear to save you a few dollars, but in the long run it is almost certainly a price that you simply cannot afford to pay!
Backyard Works has partnered with a lending source for Delaware residents who are adding fencing or an outdoor living structure to enhance and to protect their property.
