Most fences play a vital role in providing homeowners with protection and privacy. Unless you have a wealth of experience, installing a fence is not a task you should adopt as a DIY project, as building a fence involves several complicated steps.
Choosing what type of fence you would like is just the beginning of a multi-faceted process that includes firmly setting posts, a lot of hammer-and-nail work, and painting. To have a high-quality fence installed on your property, you are probably looking at a span of one to two weeks from concept to construction—or longer during the spring, which is the peak fence-building season. If you need a fence to be erected more quickly, you may be able to find a contractor who can speed up the process.
Serving residents and businesses throughout the DFW area, Buzz Custom Fence is an experienced fence installation company that has spent more than three decades earning a reputation for excellence. To speak with an experienced fence contractor about the project you have in mind, call (817) 918-4118.

Have you heard the old adage, “Good fences make good neighbors”? In many respects, this maxim is true, and it doesn’t just pertain to the installation of fences. To keep your neighbors from complaining about what an eyesore your fence has become and to ensure that your fence continues to fulfill its purpose, some maintenance and care will be required. The following tips should help keep neighbors, passersby, and your own household satisfied with the state of your fence.
Annual Deep Clean
Depending on the type of fence you have, you may need to give it a simple rinse every month or so. Once a year, you should gather your cleaning supplies and give your fence a deep clean. Pay close attention to any mold spots that have cropped up since your last cleaning, and be sure to scrub away every trace. Use only mild cleaning agents that are approved for your fence’s material.
To keep your fence from becoming termite food, treat it with termiticide. Since termites generally attack fences from the ground up, it is especially important to apply termiticide to all fence posts and bottom panels.
Replace Broken Pickets and Posts
Broken pickets lead to more broken pickets. To prevent damage from spreading and to fortify your fence’s strength, hire a fence repair professional to replace the broken parts of your fence.
Painting or Staining
Once you have made all the necessary structural repairs and thoroughly cleaned your fence, it is time to stain it or apply a new coat of paint. Do this at a time when the weather is forecast to be dry for several days. This is how your fence gets its beauty, so don’t feel bad about spending a lot of time painting or staining your fence.
At Buzz Custom Fence in Fort Worth, we know that a well-designed and properly maintained fence can boost a home’s curb appeal. We also know that a shabby or decrepit fence can have the opposite effect. To arrange to have an experienced contractor replace broken pickets, panels, or posts, call us at (817) 918-4118.

Are you tired of having to step out of your car to manually open your gate every day when you arrive home from work? If so, a fencing contractor in your area can provide you with a solution in the form of access control. Access control gates are ideal for most homes and businesses, and offer the following benefits:
Forget having to deal with another key or remember a complicated combination code. With an access control gate and fence, you can secure your property and hand-pick the individuals you wish to grant access to. The standard access control gate system consists of a telephone keypad for entering the code and a sliding drive gate, which automatically opens once the code has been properly entered.
Depending on the layout of your property, manually unlocking and opening your gate when you leave and opening and locking it when you return could take up about two minutes of your day. This may not seem like a lot of time, but it can add up. Over the course of a year, you could easily spend more than 12 hours unlocking, locking, opening, and closing your gate. An automatic control gate can reduce that time to zero.
Keep Yourself Warm and Dry
Another major advantage offered by an access control gate is that it spares you from having to brave the elements when opening or closing your door. Never again will you have to step out of your car in the pouring rain to open your gate, compromising your freshly pressed attire before you even arrive at work.
As far as convenience goes, access control gates are just about the best that the fencing world has to offer. If you live in Cleburne, Granbury, or anywhere else in the DFW area and would like to have a skilled and experienced fence contractor install an access control gate on your property, contact Buzz Custom Fence at (817) 918-4118.

Some homeowners in Fort Worth will build a fence without consulting their neighbors or their neighborhood board. In some cases, this can result in fines from your neighborhood council, the forced removal of your fence, and a group of unhappy neighbors. Instead, it’s better to communicate with your neighbors before building a fence. First, read the local fence ordinances, which will outline the allowed location, height, and appearance of a fence. Then, read the property deed so you’re clear on whose legal responsibility it is to buy and maintain a fence between the two properties. After you’ve done your research, talk to your neighbor about the fence. There’s no reason to fight with a neighbor over fencing. If there is a disagreement that cannot be settled over lunch or drinks, a community mediation center or a lawyer can help you sort everything out.
