Privacy Fence Repair and Other Outdoor Spaces for Homes in Dumfries, VA
Do you have a privacy fence on your property? Many people do. They’re fabulous, and a great way to create a secluded pocket paradise to enjoy the region’s outdoor spaces with family and friends. Unfortunately, no matter what your trusty privacy fence is made out of, time and the elements will take their toll. Accidents are bound to happen. Acts of vandalism are bound to happen. One way or another, the day’s going to come when you find yourself in need of privacy fence repair on your Dumfries, VA property.

You won’t find a more skilled collection of craftsmen anywhere, and nobody knows more about privacy fence repair in Dumfries, VA than we do! In the vast majority of cases, we’ll be able to restore your fence to like-new condition for a fraction of what it would take to have something new built, although we won’t be able to say that with absolute certainty until we’ve had a chance to see the damage for ourselves, so that’s our first step.
When you call on us, we’ll send one of our experienced estimators to your home to survey and assess the damage. Whatever we find, we’ll give you a full report, our professional recommendation, and a free, no-obligation estimate, so you’ll know exactly what it will take for us to complete the privacy fence repair work on your Dumfries, VA property and restore your trusty fence.
The particulars will vary from one job to the next, but in general, a good rule of thumb is: If the fence section or post is damaged 30% or less, we can repair it. More than that, and it becomes increasingly cost-effective to simply replace it.
In some cases, regardless of the extent or severity of the damage, our clients choose to see the damage to their existing fence as an opportunity to upgrade to something they like better. If that’s your preference, we can absolutely do that. In fact, our craftsmen love the challenge of designing and building custom fencing that really puts your stamp of individuality on your property.
If you know you want something custom, but you’re having trouble visualizing the specifics, our recommendation is to spend some time pouring over the extensive collection of photos we keep elsewhere on the site. Doing so provides you with two powerful benefits.
First, it gives you an opportunity to see the quality of our workmanship for yourself, allowing you to work with us with total confidence. Second, it’s sure to give you plenty of great ideas for your own custom fencing project!
Once you’ve got a clear vision of what you want to achieve with your design, we’ll sit down with you an map out your vision. The more detail we can capture on the front end, the happier you’ll be with what we ultimately build.
Just as we described in our process for privacy fence repair on your Dumfries, VA property, once we’ve turned your vision into a proper project plan, we’ll give it to you for final review, along with a free estimate. Then, assuming you’re comfortable with that estimate, we’ll set about turning your custom fencing dreams into a reality.
Of course, we do a lot more than just build custom fencing and conduct privacy fence repairs on your Dumfries, VA property. You could consider us to be your one-stop-shop for all your fencing, decking, and porch needs.
If you have an aging, sagging porch, and you want it restored to its former glory, we’re happy to help. Or, if you don’t have a porch yet, but you’ve wanted one since the day you purchased your current home, we’ve got you covered.
Our process for designing and building a custom porch is functionally similar to the one we outlined above when talking about custom fencing, but we’ll be asking a number of very specific questions, including things like:
Are you considering adding a front porch, side porch or back porch?
Do you want something extra wide that can accommodate things like a porch swing, a picnic table, or perhaps a variety of outdoor furniture?
Would you like to have the porch screened in?
Would you like the porch to wrap around your house? If so, how far?
Would you like to convert the porch into a ‘catio’ if you have cats, and want to give them an outdoor space to enjoy while keeping them safe?
How will you get from the porch to the yard? Will you need steps? If so, where and how many? What will they be made of?
What will the porch itself be made of?
Will you need safety rails? If so, should those be of the same, or different material?
As you can see, there’s a lot to cover and consider. Where materials are concerned, broadly speaking, you’ve got two choices: Pressure-treated lumber or composite materials. Pressure-treated lumber is slightly less expensive to build with, but has the disadvantage of requiring more in the way of ongoing maintenance.
Once your porch is built, you’ll need to power wash it, stain it, and re-seal it, all on an annual basis and all in a bid to help protect it from the elements. Composite materials are more expensive to build with but have less in the way of ongoing maintenance. Specifically, you don’t have to do any power washing, staining or sealing, making composites a lot more convenient.
Now, let’s talk about decking. Many homes in the region already have decks. If yours does, but you’ve let it go in the maintenance department, the first order of business is to get it back to looking like new, so it’s ready for outdoor entertaining any time you are.
That’s something we get asked to do on a regular basis, and once we’ve gotten your deck ready for action, just as with porches, we recommend having it inspected on an annual basis so we can make any incremental repairs it might need to keep it that way.
If you don’t yet have a deck, but you’ve always wanted one, we can work with you to design and build something custom, just like we described above with fences and porches. Obviously the questions we’ll be asking will differ markedly from the questions we ask when working with you on a custom porch project. In this case, our focus will be on questions like:
How big is your dream deck?
What do you want your dream deck made out of?
Where is it in relation to your house? How do you access the deck from inside the house?
How do you access the yard from the deck?
Will steps or stairs be needed? If so, what should they look like and what are they to be made out of?
Will safety rails be required? If so, are they made from the same materials as the deck itself, or something different?
Do you envision one large, open space, or several smaller, clearly defined areas, each with a specific purpose?
Does your dream deck exist all on one level, or, because of the lay of your land, will you need it to step gradually down into your yard?
What about extras like built-in seating or hidden storage compartments?
Do you want us to save room for premium extras like a hot tub or a wet bar?
As you can see, custom deck construction is highly variable. The sky really is the limit, and if you can dream it, we can build it.
That’s the bottom line, ultimately. We’re much more than just a fencing company. We’re much more than just a repair company. What we truly specialize in is turning dreams into a reality where your home’s outdoor spaces are concerned.
Give our office a call today. We’d love to build something amazing with you!
