Frequently Asked Questions
You’ve Got Questions, we’ve got answers…
Do I Need a Permit to Install Our Fence in Denver?
Every municipality, Denver included, has building codes that extend to the exterior of your property. As such, any fence installation or replacement must comply with these codes. As your fence installation contractor, we can help with any necessary fence permits and ensure your installation meets or exceeds your local building codes.
In some cases, a permit may not be needed at all. For example, under Denver Zoning Code 10.5.5, a front or backyard fence 4ft or less in height does not require a zoning permit.
Can We Keep the Top of The Fence Level?
This is an interesting question we hear a lot. Despite some confusion, there is a marked difference between “level” and “straight”. Although we can absolutely keep the fence straight, plotted to whatever course or property line you wish, it is almost always advisable to follow the contour of the ground as far as being ‘level’ is concerned. That said, we always do our best to keep the fence as level as the terrain allows. In other cases, utilizing ‘stepped’ panels may be the most appropriate solution.
How High Can My Fence Be in Denver?
Privacy is a major concern (and benefit) for our fence customers. Generally speaking, 6ft is the maximum. Anything over 6ft is usually considered a “structure” and requires a different type of permit.
Based On Denver Zoning Codes, Can I Have My Fence Installed Right on the Property Line?
According to Denver zoning codes, fences must be installed no less than 6” back from any public sidewalk.
Boundary fences, those placed directly on the property line, have a special set of regulations and statutes that apply to both their installation and maintenance
Our team can help you find the right solution and work with you to ensure your fence is everything you hoped for.
How Long Will The Fence Installation Last Given the (sometimes) Harsh Climate in Denver?
There are a few factors that can contribute to fence longevity: materials used, style of fence, climate, use/abuse, and upkeep/maintenance.
However, in general, the following are broad estimates:
Wood fencing: Spruce (4-7 years), Pine (5-12 years), Cedar (15-30 years)
Metal Fences: such as chain link or wrought iron can last for decades
Vinyl/PVC: largely impervious to weather these can last upwards of 30+ years
Do I Need to Be In My Denver Home when My Fence is Installed?
Although it is preferred that you are on-site in case of any issues that arise, this is not at all a requirement. That said, being available by phone in case of any unforeseen problems is advisable.
What Is a “Rock Charge”?
The depth of your fence’s posts is one of the most important aspects of your fence, providing a solid foundation to support your fence for years to come. Certain Denver building codes also require specific post depths that we must adhere to.
In some cases, our crew may run into unforeseen issues, such as rock beds, large rocks, hard clay or other obstructions that make reaching the ideal post depth a challenge. We’ll always let you know if this is the case and show you the issue so you can verify yourself. Should you wish to proceed, we may advise you of a “rock charge” to cover the additional labor and/or use of power tools to achieve optimal post depth.

How tall can a backyard fence be?
In almost every circumstance it’s 6 feet for a residential fence. The customer may apply for a variance with the city/county for anything over 6 feet.
Do you install wrought iron?
We install ornamental steel which has all but eliminated on site welded “wrought iron”. It’s cheaper, easier to install and can be repaired much more easily than welded wrought iron. The coating is better also which keeps rust at bay.
What do you do if landscaping (dirt, mulch, rock etc.) is pushing the fence over from the bottom?
We can incorporate a retaining wall with the fence that will help hold back landscaping.
What type of latch do you install on the gate?
We use an industry standard anti sag latch that can be operated and locked from both sides of the fence.
We have a large gate that is sagging, what can you do to prevent that?
We can install single or double steel frame gates up to 16 feet in width.
