Do I need a property survey for my fence?

If you are unclear where your property lines are, it is advisable that you have the property surveyed prior to installation of the fence.  A property plat will give you approximate dimensions to where your property lines are, but is not intended for the establishment of property lines.  If you elect not to have the property surveyed and are comfortable as to where the property lines are, it is your responsibility to show us where the placement of the fence is going to be.

What type of wood do you use?

Central Iowa Fencing Ltd. offers cedar wood because of its natural beauty and its tendency to resist rotting and insect infestation.  But the most important part of any wood fence is the post.  That's why we recommend Steel Postmasters.  They are designed for wood fencing.  Here's a link to a free brochure.
