  1. How long will a precast concrete fence last?
    1. Precast concrete fences can withstand the test of time! A precast concrete fence can offer 20+ maintenance-free years and will still look as good as the day it was installed!
  2. How long has your company been in business? 
    1. Our owner Chris Miller has been in the business for over 20 years and started this company three years ago when he moved back to Texas with his family.
  3. Where are you located and do you have conventional office space?
    1. Our main office is located in Flint, TX but we work all over Texas and frequently have a representative in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin, or San Antonio on any given day. 
  4. Will you contact my utility company to verify the location of the buried lines?
    1. We always call 8-1-1 before the start of any project to make sure no utility lines may be in the proposed fence line. 
  5. Do you provide references from satisfied customers?
    1. Our testimonials are available on our website and we recommend Google for honest reviews from real people. We pride ourselves on maintaining excellent customer service and a willingness to go above and beyond for our customers. 
  6. What is the width of each fence panel you plan to install?
    1. The dimensions of our concrete fence systems are typically 56 5/8 inches long by 12 inches high by 2 inches wide at its maximum and no less than 1 ½ inches wide at its minimum.
  7. How deep will your company set the posts? Will you use concrete?
    1. The depth of the piers will depend on the overall height of your fence. For an average 8’ high fence, we set our post in a 5.5-ft deep hole that is typically 12-18 in diameter. We set each post in concrete and add rebar cages where additional support is required. 
  8. How should the fence be maintained when you have finished the job?
