Frequently Asked Questions

How long will my fence install take?

Customers are often curious about how long a project will take, but the truth is it can be difficult to establish a timeline without seeing the property firsthand. Factors that can alter a project timeframe include length and style of fence, and the terrain of the landscape. Most projects will take anywhere from one to three days to complete. Many chain link fence projects can be completed in a day, whereas vinyl and ornamental aluminum fence projects will take at least two days as the concrete that holds the posts needs time to dry.

Will I need a building permit to construct a fence?

Every city and village has different requirements for building permits, and this includes fences. Many cities, for example, River Falls and Woodbury, do not require a building permit to construct a fence on a property. However, some villages, cities and townships do require a permit before the start of a fence project. Any required building permits are the responsibility of the customer, however, so we recommend you contact your local village or city hall before construction.

Do you offer a warranty?

Croix Area Fence offers a five-year warranty on all materials and labor once a fence project is completed. Our supplier also offers a limited lifetime warranty on products such as vinyl and ornamental aluminum fences. All chain link fence installs include a 15-year warranty. PostMaster Posts for wood fences also include a 15-year warranty. We will give our customers a breakdown of all warranties once a project is completed.

What kind of payments to you accept?

Customers of Croix Area Fence have many options to pay for a project, including cash, check and credit. We accept cards from most major credit companies, including Visa, Mastercard, Discover and American Express. Please note there may be an additional fee when paying by credit.

Are homeowners responsible for locating buried utility lines?

We make it a priority to figure out where all public utility lines are located before starting a project. We use Diggers Hotline in Wisconsin or Gopher State One Call in Minnesota before getting started on a job site.

Please be aware that private utility lines are not marked by these safe digging businesses. We are not responsible for knowing the location of these private utility lines, including irrigation, propane and private electrical lines. We ask customers to notify us about all known private lines before starting a project.
