Often asked questions about buying fence supplies

How do you compare to big box fencing supply stores?

When shopping for fencing materials in St. Louis, you want a supplier that can source, design and install your dream fence at a price that fits your budget.

A big box store may offer low prices, but the types of fences they carry are subpar and your “sales expert” may be someone they pulled from the garden department. A basic fence company may offer a decent fence, but contract their installation services out to a company you don’t know.

Instead of shopping around, make your first and only stop Maintenance-Free Outdoor Solutions, a top fence company in St. Louis  recognized for superior quality and incredible customer service!

What Type of Fence Is Most Expensive?

According to HomeAdvisor, wrought iron fencing is typically the most expensive. Material costs are usually around $30 per foot with $10 per foot in installation costs.

After that is aluminum and steel fences, these durable types usually run homeowners about $26 per foot in material costs and around $10+ in labor costs.

Then there’s vinyl fencing at a national average of $17 for materials and $7 for labor per foot—tied with wood at a total cost of $12 for materials and $12 for labor.

However, it’s important to remember that maintenance-free types (vinyl, steel, aluminum) last significantly longer than cheaper options like wood and require far less maintenance.

At MFOS, we don’t price gauge, so you get the fairest pricing a quality company can offer.

What Fence Material Lasts the Longest?

Wrought iron fences last the longest out of all fencing materials. A well-built and adequately installed wrought iron fence can easily last a lifetime with the proper care and upkeep. For those less cared for, you can expect 60+ years of integrity.

Aluminum and steel fences won’t last quite as long—usually around 30 to 40 years and up to 50. Vinyl fences come in at about 20 to 30 years.

The most common fence type, wood, actually has the shortest lifespan of 15 to 20 years. That being said, wood requires significantly more upkeep than nearly any other fence type. Homeowners need to clean and repaint or stain every three years for the most extended lifespan. That’s not necessary for other material types.

What to consider before purchasing a fence?

If you’ve been on the edge about whether or not to start your own fencing project, making just a few decisions can help point you in the right direction:

  1. What should be my first step? Your initial step should be to find out if installing a fence is even allowed by your homeowner’s association (HOA). A growing number of HOA’s in St. Louis are placing strict requirements on the height and style of fences they’ll allow in their neighborhoods. Be sure to read your by-laws carefully, and if required, secure approval from the board before breaking ground. The last thing you want to do is invest in a fence only to have to tear it down after installation.
  2. What purpose do I want the fence to serve? Consider whether you need privacy, security for pets or children, noise reduction, decoration, or a defined boundary line. Want to have an open view of the neighborhood but still keep your pets and kids safe? Then consider a spaced picket or “picket thru” rail option that is both open and secure.
  3. Which fence complements my home and my personality? Maintenance-Free Outdoor Solutions carries a full line of fencing options. Our design experts can work with you to identify your personal style, whether it’s cutting-edge or traditional, and help you bring it to the great outdoors with fencing that also enhances the look of your home. We can even accent your fence with stylish end caps and attention-grabbing fence accessories.
  4. How much time can I dedicate to upkeep? The amount of maintenance you have to dedicate to your fence depends on the fencing materials you choose. Wood is often cheaper, but it has to be painted or stained frequently and is prone to split, crack and lean. If you want to devote your summers to relaxation, vinyl, aluminum or simulated stone may be better choices.
  5. How much do I want to spend? Fencing costs range significantly depending on the materials used and the accents you choose. To get the most bang for your buck, find your property survey, so you know exactly how many linear feet of fencing you need. Spend time researching the different fencing materials available and the estimated cost of maintenance. You may also want to get estimates from a number of fencing companies before making your final choice.

What types of fences do supply stores typically offer?

Our fence supply store offers a broad range of fencing supply materials. Maintenance-Free Outdoor Solutions, for example, specializes in providing high-quality, American-made, maintenance-free fencing options including vinyl, aluminum, and composite that imitate natural stone and wood grain.

How do I choose the right fencing material?

Choosing the right fencing material involves considering factors like durability, maintenance, aesthetics, and cost. At Maintenance-Free Outdoor Solutions, our fence supply experts guide you through these considerations, ensuring you pick the perfect material to meet both your functional needs and design preferences.

Are fence supply stores more affordable than hiring a contractor?

Purchasing materials from a fence supply store can often be more cost-effective if you are comfortable with DIY installation. Stores like Maintenance-Free Outdoor Solutions offer competitive pricing on high-quality materials and provide expert advice for DIY projects so you’d be in good hands.

Can I buy fencing supplies online?

Some fence supply stores offer online purchasing options. While Maintenance-Free Outdoor Solutions has a physical showroom in the St. Louis area, you can also consult with us virtually to explore the best fencing solutions tailored to your needs.

What are the maintenance requirements for different types of fences?

Wooden fences typically require regular painting or staining, while chain links may rust over time. In contrast, materials like vinyl and aluminum are low-maintenance options. Maintenance-Free Outdoor Solutions lives up to its name by offering durable fencing materials that require minimal upkeep.
