Frequently Asked Questions

Our customers ask a lot of great questions. We thought we'd share some of them with you ... as you might be wondering about some of these things as well.

With ActiveYards' Glidelock technology, vinyl pickets will not blow apart with high winds. In high winds, vinyl pickets can bow and come out of the rail. To prevent that, we use ActiveYards' Stay Straight technology, which uses rail locks to lock the rails together so they will not come out of the posts. These features make vinyl fences incredibly strong while StaySquare technology fortifies the gates. Optional steel posts can be used to prevent the posts from bowing at the ground.

This depends on the type and condition of your current fence. ActiveYards fences can often be modified and changed to add on new features or swap out old rails. Contact Mr. Fence fencing contractors and tell us the age and type of the fence you currently want to work around. We can help you to plan your fencing project right here in Evansville, Indiana.

When installing wood fences, vinyl fences, aluminum fences, and chain link fences, we use our own Mr. Fence formulation of concrete that allows us to get better compaction in the footer to prevent frost heave. This procedure reduces the likelihood of frost heave caused by the freezing and thawing of the ground during seasonal changes. The concrete will be completely set in a week or two.

For both pressure treated and cedar fences, we use pressure treated wood for the posts and rails. For pressure treated wood fences, we use pressure treated wood for the pickets. This type of wood will absorb and evaporate water at a very inconsistant rate, which can cause warping, cracking and twisting. Staining and sealing can help this, but not prevent it. Cedar pickets are more stable in our Evansville Indiana environment, so it is less prone to warping, splitting, and cracking, however, it will eventually rot. We recommend staining and sealing your new cedar fence within two weeks of installation to help prevent this.

A wood fence has natural characteristics and beauty that most people love to look at. Wood also warps, cracks, checks, splits and rots - sometimes excessively and not what you expected. Vinyl fencing is clean, neat, and true with a lifetime warranty and will stay looking like the original install for many many years. Wood fencing needs to be stained, sealed and protected within two weeks, which can be costly. This will need to be repeated every 3 to 4 years. The cost breakeven point is in about 5 to 7 years. If you have your wood fence any longer than that, it actually is more expensive than a vinyl fence.

It depends on several items. We are very fast and efficient. Most residential projects are completed in one day with our unique installation techniques. We use a dry pack post setting method, using our own proprietary mix, enabling us to set our posts and build our fence in the same day.

Generally, 6' tall is the highest height for residential settings. When considering a wood fence, vinyl fence or aluminum fence, 6' tall is common for privacy and a 4' hight is most common for decorative purposes and to keep small kids and pets in the yard. For a pool fence, 5' or 6' tall fences are required in some areas as a minumim height. Although some areas only require a 5' fence around a pool, we recommend 6' tall to put in the safest product possible to keep everyone safe. We can customize your fence to any height you desire.

Our price isn't any higher than anyone else. We we come out to your property, we will dissect your needs and give you a feature and benefit to match those needs. We build our price structure around the value of the product.

How will my fence be affected by the weather in Vanderburgh County, Indiana? Aluminum fencing does not require any preparation for winters in the Evansville, Indiana area. Aluminum can withstand snow and freezing temperatures much better than a wood fences or even wrought iron.

At Mr. Fence we highly recommend Cambium vinyl fencing if you want a durable, high security fence that looks like wood. Cambium is much more durable and offers better protection than wood fences. It closely resembles redwood, saddlewood and birchwood. This is a great alternative to installing a wooden fence on your Vanderburgh County, Indiana property.
