Delaware Picket Fence Installation

Many Delaware residents choose Picket Fences for their properties for a number of reasons, but mainly because of their versatility and their ability to boost curb appeal.
The Leading Edge Fence & Gates team can help you bring your ideas to life, whether you have a certain picket fence style that complements your dream home or you want to explore different picket fence ideas. We combine our more than 20 years of experience with rapid, cost-effective, and customized solutions to provide top-notch service.

Benefits of Picket Fence Designs

Whether using vinyl or a wooden fence, a picket fence is versatile for homeowners. Although commonly associated with a home’s backyard, picket fences are also popular choices for farms, gardens, and even parks. Some picket fence advantages include.
A picket fence is an excellent choice when you want to demarcate your property’s boundary while keeping the exterior classy and maintaining the privacy of your family.
Picket fences can blend into just about any environment. For example, they easily blend in with any commercial business, neighborhood, or farm. In addition, vinyl or wooden material is easier to dispose of than material like stone or metal.
Maintaining your expert-installed picket fence can boost your home’s curb appeal. Whether or not your picket fence ideas include eventually selling your home, you are sure to impress friends, neighbors, and strangers when they visit or pass by your home.
In addition to providing more privacy, a picket fence installation can also add a layer of safety. If you have small children or pets, a picket fence will keep them safe and secure.

Is a Picket Fence Cost-Effective?

How much does a picket fence cost? Although a picket fence can quickly boost your home’s curb appeal, the overall cost is relatively low due to inexpensive materials.
A traditional picket fence generally consists of three main parts:
The picket fence installation typically uses either wooden or vinyl, two of the most inexpensive materials available. Additionally, when compared to materials like stone or metal, a picket fence also takes less time to install.

Make Your Picket Fence Installation Your Own

Our team at Leading Edge Fence & Gates can help you decide what material is best for your picket fence. Our comprehensive care includes a free consultation where our team can discuss the best options for you, your budget, and your home.
Additionally, our customized services allow you to:

Sealing, Painting, and Staining

By staining and sealing your picket fence, you can protect it from issues like fading, dramatic changes in temperature, and weather events. Sealing can also protect against water damage and exposure to the sun. Aim to seal your fence at least once a year for optimal results.
You can also maintain your picket fence by painting it. Painting your fence is primarily a way to match your home and yard’s aesthetic. First, you’ll want to prime your fence using an alkyd oil-based primer and a top-notch acrylic latex paint for subsequent coats.
Lastly, staining your picket fence can boost its aesthetic appeal by adding an enhanced color or texture. Some stains also protect from the sun and water damage.

We asked and wise advise with experience was given regarding how far from the property line would be good footage. We received installation of our white vinyl L shaped fence in a timely and professional manner. From the secretary gathering basic information in early November 2022 to more detailed information by the Installer. The experience went smoothly, ending in early December 2022. When enquiry was made, Leading Edge Fence & Gates were recommended to my neighbors.

Talk about quality work, these guys are the best. I was able to use their fence budget tool on their website and got a estimate right away. They came out and got rid of our 20 year old wood split rail and put in a beautiful black aluminum. The crew was very professional and hard working. The whole project was done in 2 days. That consist of taking down the old fence and installing the new. Looks so great that my cousin is getting a new fence from them also.

Wes and his team are great to work with. Very knowledgeable, friendly and personable. Answered questions I had along the way. They did an exceptional job installing the fence with the irregular shape of the backyard.
I cannot express enough how great an experience it was having you do our fence project. Very professional crew, completed project very quickly, worked very fast when I decided last minute to add more because their work was so amazing. Office staff stay in touch and answer questions immediately. I highly recommend them.

Great experience installing a wood split rail fence around a portion of my new property for a dog run. Wes helped us decide where to install the fence on the property, workable size, and answered all questions. He was even able to accommodate us moving up the proposed date to work better in line with our sooner then expected settlement date. His guys completed the fence in a matter of hours and ensured everything was completed as expected. We will use them in the future for our fencing needs.

Wes and his team were a dream to work with. They were responsive and polite from start to finish. We had a bit of a hiccup with the town and an unresolved fencing permit - but Wes took care of it for us and we did not have to pay the fine! We really appreciate the exceptional customer service, which is hard to find lately. We are just in love with our fence - and so are our dogs!

My grandparents live in the Delaware area and needed to get a fence & gate installed for more privacy. They're not great with technology so they asked me to help find someone to come out. After a lengthy search, I came across Leading Edge. They had the best reviews I could find. Wesley and his team were awesome. They put together a very fair quote and were incredibly responsive to my grandparents. I'd absolutely send anyone their way that asked me for a recommendation!
