Restore Fencing at Homes with Vinyl Fence Repair in Dumfries, VA

Is your trusty vinyl fence looking a bit ragged these days? Was it damaged by a recent storm? Attacked by vandals? Did you back into it in a moment of carelessness?

Hal Co is a reputable fence contractor serving Dumfries, VA residents for over 30 years. We offer:

  • Quality design, selection, installation and related services for your fence in Dumfries, VA following the highest safety procedures and industry standards.
  • In partnership, we will evaluate your fence project requirements and develop a comprehensive installation plan.
  • Personalized customer service before, during and after installing your fence in Dumfries, VA to minimize your disruption and maximize your comfort.

Ultimately, the reasons that caused the damage are immaterial. It could be nothing more than the simple passage of time, which takes its toll on all things. In the end though, you wind up in the same place. You need a repair job.

If you’re at least a moderately experienced do it yourselfer, vinyl fence repair on your Dumfries, VA property is something you can most likely handle on your own. If you don’t mind the fact that it’s almost certain to take more time than you think it will. If you don’t mind the backbreaking labor, and of course, if you don’t mind giving up a weekend or missing work to get the job done.

Given how brutal the work can be, most people choose to outsource the job, but if you’re determined to go it alone, here are a couple of things to keep in mind:

First, vinyl tends to get brittle as it ages, which means that the older your fence gets, the more prone it’s going to become to cracking. At a certain point, keeping the fence repaired is going to be a full-time job. Second, use the 30% rule of thumb. If the section of fence or fence post is less than 30% damaged, repair it. If it’s more than 30% damaged, replace it.

The good news is that you don’t have to go it alone if you don’t want to. We’ve been proudly serving the region for years, and nobody knows more about vinyl fence repair in Dumfries, VA than our skilled craftsmen.

The other silver lining is this: Vinyl is an incredibly common fencing material, which means that if you wind up having to replace sections, or having us do it, it’s generally pretty easy to get precise materials, color and style match.

In most cases, we’ll be able to complete the vinyl fence repair on your Dumfries, VA property, restoring it to like-new condition for just a fraction of what it would cost you to have the old fence torn out and have something new built in its place.

We won’t know that for sure until we’ve had a chance to survey and assess the damage for ourselves, so if you decide to work with us, that will be our first step. Once we’ve seen the damage, we’ll be able to make a professional recommendation and provide you with a free, no-obligation estimate so you’ll have a good grasp of exactly what it will take to solve the problem and repair the damage.

Of course, some of the customers we work with prefer to forego vinyl fence repair on their Dumfries, VA property, choosing instead to view the damaged fence as a great opportunity to upgrade. If that’s your preference, we’re more than happy to work with you. In fact, if you really want to put your own personal stamp on your property, we can even design and build a totally custom fence for you.

Custom fence builds are much more involved than standard repair work, so it’s important that you have a very clear vision of what you want before we begin. If you know you want something custom, but you’re struggling to put your vision into words, we invite you to spend some time browsing the extensive collection of photos we keep elsewhere on the site.

If you take the time to look through our completed projects, you’ll come away with a better sense of the quality of workmanship our craftsmen are capable of, and you’re sure to get tons of great ideas for your own custom fencing project.

The reason it’s so important to have a clear vision before we begin is that we’ll be working with you to map out your vision precisely. We’ll use the details we glean from you to create our project plan, so the more information we get, the happier you’ll be with what we ultimately build for you.

Once we’ve completed our project plan, we’ll give it to you for review, along with a free estimate so you’ll have a good understanding of the scope and scale of the project and what it will take to turn your custom fencing dream into a reality.

Then, assuming you’re comfortable with our estimate, we’ll dispatch one of our veteran build crews to your property and get to work!

Of course, we do a lot more than handling vinyl fence repair in Dumfries, VA and building custom fencing.

Do you have an old deck on your property that’s getting too rickety and unstable to use for lack of regular maintenance? Just as we can restore your old fence to its former glory, we can do the same thing for an aging deck.

Once we have your deck ready for outdoor entertaining again, our recommendation is that you call us again once a year so we can perform an annual inspection and make any incremental repairs that might be needed. We also recommend giving your deck an annual power washing, staining, and re-seal it to help protect it from the elements.

Note that the above only applies to wooden decks, by the way. If you have a deck made from some type of composite material, we still recommend the annual inspection, but you can pass on the other items. Composite decks just don’t need them. Sure, they cost a little more on the front end, but you make up for it because they require less maintenance over the longer term.

If you don’t have a deck yet, we can build you a totally custom one. Where custom deck projects are concerned, we’ll be asking a number of very specific questions to help us capture your vision in detail. Here are a few, just to get your mind turning on the subject:

  • How big is your dream deck?
  • What is it made out of?
  • How to you access the deck from inside your home?
  • How do you access your yard from the deck?
  • Do you want your deck to be built all on one level, or do you prefer a multi-level extravaganza?
  • Will you need steps and/or safety rails? If so, what should they look like, and what should they be made out of?
  • Do you want hidden storage compartments, built-in seating, or other extras like that?
  • Should we save room for a wet bar or hot tub?

You get the idea. Once we’ve collected as much information about your dream deck as we can, our process proceeds much as we described above for custom fence projects.

In addition to restoring old decks and building custom deck creations, we can also restore an aging, sagging porch if you have one. Or, if you don’t yet have a porch, we can build one for you. We can even build a screen porch for you or screen in an existing porch.

Screened porches have become incredibly popular in recent years, and it’s easy to see why. There’s no better way to enjoy the fabulous views our part of the country offers while keeping the bugs at bay!

As we described above, when we were talking about decks, we’ll need to ask a number of questions about the custom porch of your dream. Here are the kinds of questions we’ll be seeking answers for:

  • Where is the porch to be located on your house? Front? Back? Side?
  • Do you want a wraparound porch? If so, how far should it wrap around? Will it connect to some other porch already at your house?
  • Will you need steps or safety rails – or both? If so, what should they be made of?
  • What should the porch itself be made of?
  • Do you want your new porch screened in?

And so on. Once we collect that information, our process proceeds as we’ve described previously.

The real question then, is this: Are you ready to stop dreaming and start building? If so, call us today!
