Labor rates for fence and gate projects start at:

 

$169* for the first hour of each trip and $119 an hour after that (that’s for 2 employees)

 

Rates listed above are the usual check or cash rates per hour for labor charged to our customers for repairing and installing new wood gates or fencing (not including dump disposal fees or materials). Larger fence projects may need an onsite consultation before starting any work. This way we can take measurements, photographs, & prepare a material and scope of work plan.

 

We charge for all time included in a customer’s project, including purchasing or delivering materials, and offsite work like painting lumber prior to an installation, or for the time to haul away debris. This allows us to take on smaller projects for our fence and gate clients, rather than only lump sum projects with much higher minimums to show up.

 

Thanks to our processing partner Paypal, we do accept most major credit and debit cards now! Rates are slightly higher, please call our office for all of the details.

 

*$169 to $189 is the first hour of work charge depending on zip code of the job location. Some exclusions do apply, like same-day, after hours or weekend service or customers with pre-arranged billing agreements. Communities outside of our area of operations will be charged additional travel costs. We would be happy to answer any of your pricing questions, please call for details!

Our office is open from 8am to 5pm Pacific Standard Time Monday to Friday.

Great Question! Edward’s Enterprises is usually available:

 

Office: Monday through Friday 8:00am to 5:00pm by phone in our office to schedule carpentry projects and ask questions about service.

 

Field: As far as scheduling work, for our typical rates listed above (I know we didn’t skip that section) we normally schedule work Monday through Friday from 7am to 4pm (holidays, meetings, kids with flus may affect availability).

 

Most projects get a 2 hour window of arrival, so expect something like 7am to 9am, or 10am to 12pm, or even 1pm to 3pm window.

 

We are available for emergency carpentry work based on a first come first serve system and whether or not we have a crew available. Expect to pay more for these types of calls (we have employees and overtime is what it is).

 

If you need us to come outside of those times, expect to pay a bit more, or experience different restrictions like job minimums, etc.

If you don’t see your community on the list, but you’re close by give us a call. We may be able to service your carpentry repair request or schedule an onsite consultation for an additional minimum hour charge and/or travel charge.

Sometimes the answer to this question depends on how much stock of either the company you are purchasing has on hand. But what, if any, is the real difference between the two when discussing fencing in particular? For this discussion we are focusing on the pickets themselves, as opposed to the post or stringer as we typically install metal posts with treated 2X3 stringers or treated 4X4 posts with treated 2X4 stringers.
 
– Cedar has (common) Redwood beat in the price category, but not by much depending on where you live or where you are buying.
 
– Cedar is a light yellow wood while Redwood typically has an earthier brown/red tone, & each will definitely give you a certain look if you are planning on leaving it raw.
 
– If you are painting or staining the wood fence after installation Cedar may be the better choice over Redwood because of the price difference.
 
– As for strength & durability, if we use the Janka hardness test Redwood is the clear winner, but unless you are using your fence to catch errant foul balls Cedar (for pickets) should be more than satisfactory.
 
– While most fencing contractors will recommend redwood to prevent termite damage, Cedar & Redwood contain tannin, which is a natural insect repellent, but Redwood contains more & may outlast Cedar in a head to head race to rot.
 
As you can see the differences between the 2 types of picket are not so large & the choice will often come down to general appearance goals & price!

Don't find out the hard way why maintenance on fences is key! A few hours 2-3 times a year could be the difference between wood fencing that last for 20-30 years or a fence that needs to be replaced too soon.
 
– Every 3-6 months you should check your fence for peeling, splintering, mold or breakage, especially at the base of posts & pickets, & the tops of stringers where water can pool or collect. bIf you have a vinyl fence summers can dry out & create brittle components like caps that need to be inspected.
 
– Also look for signs of termite damage & infestation. If you find signs of termites, then you may want to consider spot treatment by an exterminator, especially if the fence is attached to your home, as you may have a larger undiscovered issue.
 
– Next, depending on the style of wood & fence, you may want to sand off rough edges or protruding splits, these can provide an entry point for wood destroying insects or dry rot fungus.
 
The next few procedures may take a bit longer; however, they only need to be preformed every year or two. Painted fences may start to look old when they start peeling & become flaky & chipped, & the loss of the paint's protection will lead to weathering & insect entry more readily. Scraping, painting & sealing can lengthen the life of your fence. First, scrape away flakes & chips before painting. Then use a primer & an outdoors paint to paint the fence. Afterwards, or instead of painting if you prefer a natural look, you may want to seal the fence with a clear or transparent product to help preserve it.
