Frequently Asked Questions

How do I decide which type of fence to purchase?

First, determine the purpose of the fence. Do you want to contain your children and pets, or keep unwanted neighbors and animals out of your yard? Do you want to create privacy, or create a safe enclosure around your swimming pool?  Fences come in many different materials and styles. Our website offers you a sample of the many options that are available.  To assist you further, please visit our new state-of-the-art facility located in Loveland, Ohio. Our professional experts can be reached via phone, email or in person at our showroom, and can help you in choosing the best fence for your circumstances.

 

What do I need to know about local zoning and fence codes?

Building codes for fences and pools vary by state, county, city, and even homeowner's association. You should contact your applicable county zoning department to determine your exact requirements. Codes may determine placement, height, materials, etc.

 

What types of warranties and guarantees are available?

Warranties on materials vary. This is an important consideration when determining the type of fence you would like to purchase.  Depending on materials, terms can range from no warranty on products like wood fencing, to lifetime warranties on maintenance-free products, such as P.V.C. vinyl and aluminum fences. The lumber we use for our wood products is of top grade materials. However, lumber is a product of nature and therefore, we cannot be responsible for the natural seasoning of the lumber, which may include some warping, cracking, and shrinkage. This is a natural part of the lumber's drying process.  We will provide you with manufacturer's warranty information.  Many factors affect the life of a fence, such as local climate, soil conditions, proper installation, wear and tear, and proper maintenance.  Warranty on labor from Eads Fence Company is one year.  Warranties and guarantees are only as good as the company giving them. We have been keeping our word, backing our products, and honoring our guarantees since 1980!

 

Do I need a survey?

Surveys define exactly where your property line is and eliminate any guesswork from the layout of your fence project.  If you know exactly where your property line is, then a survey may not be necessary. However, it is our recommendation that a survey be obtained.

 

What about underground wires and utilities?

If you are building your own fence, it is very important for you to call your local underground utility source.  They will properly locate and mark any public utilities.  If we are installing your fence, we will schedule the marking of the utility lines through: Ohio: 811 or 1-800-362-2764; Kentucky: 1-800-752-6007; and Indiana: 1-800-382-5544.   They will mark public utility lines.  However, they will not mark private lines, such as sprinklers, underground downspouts, invisible fence, etc.   Eads Fence Company is not responsible for private lines.  Please alert us to any private lines.  We will be as cautious as possible but we cannot be held responsible for underground utilities that are not clearly marked or identified by the customer.

 

Do you carry insurance?

Yes, we carry general liability insurance, and worker's compensation insurance on our employees.

Several materials may apply here, such as chain link and farm fence. However, for overall aesthetics, strength, durability, ease of installation and value, you cannot beat Eads Fence Company's brand of deer fence.  Our deer fence is made of polypropylene plastic, with 2"x2" mesh and heights of 7.5 feet and 10 feet.  Our deer fence provides a virtually invisible barrier, is very strong and impact-resistant.  Our deer fence will not rust and it will last for 10-20 years.  It can be installed with posts, or attached to existing trees.  It is transparent in wooded areas and does not detract from landscapes.  Our deer fencing has proven successful in protecting backyard gardens and plants, as well as multi-acre farms and crops.  Deer fencing also brings the added benefit of decreasing the risk of tick-borne Lyme disease.
