Are you insured?

Yes, we are fully insured. We carry liability insurance and worker’s compensation on all of our employees.

Do you give free estimates?

Yes, Elwer Fence is happy to provide free estimates on new installations. There is a fee for insurance estimates.

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes, we accept Visa and Mastercard.

We have our own fence materials and just want you to install them. Will you do this?

Unfortunately, we do not install anything other than our own products. Due to warranty issues we have encountered in the past with other products, we are unable to provide this service. All fence products we install are high quality, durable, and from trustworthy brands. For more information about the product lines we install, click the navigation menu above.

I don’t know where my property line is. Can you help?

We do not locate property pins. Look at a county auditor map found online and get a rough idea. If needed, call a surveyor prior to any installation.

I have pipeline markers and electric transformers in my yard. Can you put fence over them?

Look at your deed to determine if there are any underground easements, such as pipelines, and major utility lines. Fence lines should not be placed on these.

Who does the underground utility locate?

Elwer Fence will call for the underground utility location. Any fence in the line of a marked underground utility will have to be moved inward or outward as not to cut the utility during post hole digging.

How long does it take to do my job?

Lead times for fence installation vary greatly due to work volume. Spring and Summer are our busiest times, so plan early. Actual time in the yard varies with size but on average it takes 2-3 days to do the installation for many jobs.

I need some fence materials for a project that I am going to do myself. Can I get materials from you?

Yes, Elwer Fence carries a large inventory of the materials you may need. Special order items can usually be at our shop within a week. To inquire about materials, call 419-221-2511 or email
