Fence Installation Timeline
We understand many Oklahoma residents have questions about having a fence installed and everything that goes into the process. Our fence installation timeline will help guide you through the installation process.
For many of you, this may be your first experience dealing with a fence contractor and/or having a new fence installed. Fence OKC wants to make sure the your experience is transparent and smooth as possible once you have selected Fence OKC to complete your fence project.
AGREED UPON SERVICE
Once you have reviewed your estimate and had any questions answered by your sales representative. He will submit your fence project to the main office and this will begin the fence installation timeline. Once your project is inputted, Fence OKC will order the all the materials and supply to install your new fence.
If you have any changes you wish to make, please contact your sales representative as soon as possible so they can submit a change order if necessary. Take note, some changes may delay or push-back your original install date.
SCHEDULE YOUR FENCE PROJECT
No matter if you’re fence project is 50′ or 10,000′, it is as important to us as it is to you. The second phase of our fence installation timeline is scheduling your fence project.
With several salespeople selling fence all over central Oklahoma, we keep the mindset of, “first come, first scheduled.” During the busy seasons, it is not unrealistic that any respectable fence company will be scheduled out as far as three weeks or more. We will get your fence project on our schedule as soon as possible.
Please be aware that all scheduling is dictated by weather and other circumstances that may happen beyond our control. Our scheduling department will make every effort to contact you should there be any changes to the installation schedule.
There are instances when your fence project could be moved up or fit in between other projects. If a fence installation crew finishes a project early or we have a project held up by unexpected circumstances. We will fill the spot with the next fence project that can be installed within the available time frame.
LOCATE OKLAHOMA UTILITIES
The third phase of our fence installation timeline, and one of the most important, is having underground utility lines located on your property.
Fence OKC will contact OKIE811 to schedule a time for USIC personnel to come to your home or property to locate and mark underground utility lines. By Oklahoma law, this MUST be completed before ANY work can begin and by the contractor doing the work. When OKIE811 is contacted. USIC personnel have 48 hours to locate and mark underground utility lines.
Fence OKC will call OKIE811 the week before your project is to begin (normally Wednesday) and will notify you once called. USIC personnel have up to 48 hours to locate and mark underground utility lines and usually have them marked by Friday. Please make sure all gates are accessible and pets are contained until lines are marked.
Lines may be marked with colored paint and/or colored flags. Please avoid removing or disturbing any markings, our installers will avoid these areas when installing your new fence. does not locate or mark private underground lines such as sprinkler systems or landscape lighting.
INSTALLING YOUR NEW FENCE
The installation of your new fence is the fourth phase, and most exciting phase, of our fence installation timeline. There are two parts to this phase.
We will notify you a couple days before to confirm the day of your project start date. The average Oklahoma backyard fence replacements take a minimum of 2 days (weather permitting).
Phase four of our fence installation timeline is split into two parts:
PART #1: On the first day, a Fence OKC representative will meet with you to confirm the location and details about your fence project. He will also pick up your first half of payment on your project.
Our fence installation crew will begin removing any old fence material and stack it neatly by the curb to have it picked up and hauled away (if applicable). This may take up to 48 to 72 hours before the panels are removed.
Once the old fence is removed, Fence OKC will then proceed to set posts for your new fence. When initially installed, fence posts may look to be set higher or lower than each other. This is normal and they will be cut even and dome caps will be placed on them (if applicable) at time of completion.
PART #2: The second phase of your fence project consists of installing the fence material to the previously set posts.
Fence OKC will also install any gates and complete any custom work you may have included in your project.
**Please note, on rare occasion, there may be a a few days between setting posts and the completion of your project.** This depends on Oklahoma weather and/or uncontrollable circumstances.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about your project during the fence installation timeline. Please call your sales representative at the number provided on your estimate.
