Fences often sustain damage from hail that may be reimbursed through your homeowner’s insurance. HRTI works with homeowner associations and insurance companies to gain approval for repairs and installation. Most homeowner associations have covenant restrictions about fencing materials, height, and color.
From city zoning requirements to adherence to HOA covenants, property line lot surveys, and neighborhood aesthetics, there are many considerations when making changes to your property. HRTI can explore these restrictions for you and offer solutions within covenant restrictions that will work for you. HRTI can do the legwork necessary to make sure you are operating in compliance of all concerned parties.
If done professionally, fences add aesthetic appeal to your home, while also providing security, privacy, and boundaries. A number of materials are available for fencing and you may want to consider the maintenance and cost of each. Consider a wide range of fencing solutions with the help of HRTI.
Wood fences have an attractive, warm street appeal. Wood fences do require routine maintenance to protect them for longevity in our dry, Denver front-range climate. There are several different types of woods to choose from like cedar, redwood, cypress and teak. All resist insects, warping, and shrinkage, but require annual, if not bi-annual applications of oil and/or sealant to extend the life of the fence. In addition to aesthetic appeal, wood initially costs less than composite, vinyl, stone, or wrought iron. However, it will incur more cost down the road for upkeep and replacement.
Composite fence is similar to wood in appearance, but durable like plastic. It is made up of palstic and wood fibers and built to last. This material comes in a wide range of colors and styles by several different manufacturers. It requires almost no maintenance and is insect and rot resistant.
Vinyl fences cost more than wood initially but require much less upkeep throughout the life of the fence. Most vinyl fence solutions only require soap and water to keep them looking polished for years. Some vinyl fences even come with a lifetime warranty. Choosing a vinyl solution that will work well for years to come may be in your best interest. Vinyl fences come in a number of styles and colors.
Wrought iron fences add class and interest to a home. These fences are often custom designed to fit the look of your existing home. Interestingly, wrought iron requires a fair amount of upkeep throughout the years to keep from rusting. Aluminum alternatives to wrought iron fences can add the look and strength of metal while requiring much less upkeep.
Masonry is an expensive option for fencing, but the finished product looks stately and enduring. Stucco, stone, concrete, and brick are all considered options for masonry fences. Because of their weight, these fence materials require an infrastructure of metal and footings to support them, adding to their expense. To minimize costs, sometimes homeowners select a mixture of masonry and metal or wood to create a look that will endure for years.
