There are many questions one may have when getting a fence installed. Here of a few of our most asked questions. If you have a question that is not answered below please contact us and one of our professionals will be happy to help.
Q: Do I need a permit when getting a fence?
A: Not all towns require a permit, but many do. To be safe, we recommend you check with your township. We can provide any information your township needs from us such as certificate of liability, workers comp insurance, or our license registration number.
Q: How do I know where my property lines are?
A: Property pins indicate your property lines. If you cannot locate pins, you may ask the township for a plot plan which may give you measurements from landmarks to help you find the correct property line. You can also try asking a neighbor. We cannot be responsible for locating them for you, so if you cannot locate them a survey might be your best option.
Q: When installing a fence, how do we know where there may be any underground utilities?
A: Garrido fences will contact PA ONE and they come out and mark all public utilities. However, if you have any private lines such as pool lines, propane lines, etc., please inform the installer so he can be careful around those areas.
Q: Do you use any subcontractors?

Q: How much will a fence cost me?

Q: Are there any restrictions on fence heights?

Q: How long will it take to install my fence?
