OKC and Edmond Fencing Frequently Asked Questions

Fences in Oklahoma City can be a maximum of 8 feet tall in the city. It is most common for homeowners to opt for a 6 foot tall fence. It also largely depends on HOAs. In Edmond, Oklahoma City, Nichols Hills, and surrounding areas, we always advise our customers to check with their local HOA for fence rules and regulations. There are often regulations regarding ornamental iron fences and ornamental iron gates, vinyl fencing, chain link fences and gates, as well as wood color and height.

Posts on a fence run vertically and runners on a fence run horizontally.

Galvanized Chain-Link is our most affordable fencing option for both residential and commercial. Our team can provide a cost estimate, including your specific needs like chain link fence gates and other customizations. If you’re in the greater OKC metro area, we would love to provide a quote for you! 

Our most affordable wood fence option is our gorgeous Western Red Cedar with metal posts. We do not offer cheaper wood products like white spruce because the quality just is not there. Western Red Cedar is naturally pest-resistant and is more durable than other “cheaper” woods.

It can be hard to tell sometimes. A competent fencing contractor should want to share the specifics about the materials they will be using and the differences in materials. The materials at big box building supply stores in Edmond and OKC are not nearly the same quality you are getting from a reputable fencing contractor. Some fencing contractors will sell you what they call quality and end up going to the box stores for the product.

  • We typically use Western Red Cedar pickets because it stands up to the test of time (and can withstand Oklahoma’s extreme weather) and is naturally pest-resistant. 
  • We build all of our fence panels in our shop to ensure quality.We use 1 3/4″ ring shank nails (industry standard is 1 1/4″). 
  • All of our products are made in the USA.

Yes, we secure every fence post in concrete & follow more safety measures to ensure our method adheres to the posts better. This includes:

  • We drill 6″ wide holes in the ground.
  • We use bagged QUIKRETE Concrete Mix (proven formula) that we mix with water in a wheelbarrow so that we’re pouring mixed concrete into the hole. We never dry set our posts.
  • We use heavy duty .095 gauge metal posts.
  • We set our posts in concrete a minimum of 2 feet below grade.

You would be surprised but some Oklahoma City fence contractors actually just drive fence posts in the ground without any concrete. Some get the bagged concrete and just pour that in the hole then add water. Some mix their concrete by batch mix (individual products) but that’s basically guesswork.

We always ensure accuracy when installing a new fence and work with site plans that the home builder or homeowner provides on new home installations. Although we do not work directly with a land surveyor for fence line surveys, we do have a great reference for a surveyor in the Oklahoma City area that we can direct a homeowner to if a survey is needed.
