Budget of Your Business

For many businesses, cost is one of the most critical factors when picking a fence for your business. There are lots of factors that can wager the total cost of the final product such as the type of material used, the size of the fence, and how it needs to be installed during the process.

There are a few different ways to help reduce the cost when having a commercial fence installed. One way is to select a material of less expense, but also consider the upkeep and maintenance that a lower expense fence may require in the later years. Aluminum fencing is similar in architectural style to a custom iron fence without the extra costs.

Some Fencing Options That May Work Best

Now that you know some of the things to look for and consider when picking out the perfect fence for your business, lets view some of options that may work best.

Chain Link Fence

One of the most cost-effective and popular fence options is a chain link fence. A big benefit of a chain link fence is that it provides a level of security without obstructing the view, if you are looking to keep your view available to others. It is popular across many different industries since it is so affordable and effective.

At Loudon County Fence, we utilize commercial/industrial grade chain link for businesses as opposed to the residential chain link. The commercial and industrial grade are thicker, making them a bit stronger. If you are looking for extra security, we can do the addition of razor wire.

There is also another service we can offer your business. It is called plated “warehouse fence”. Part of our commercial services is the ability to install an interior fence as well, including cages and storage areas. Typically, the chain link fence price increases as the height goes up.

Ornamental Fences

An ornamental fence is a great option for businesses that are in search for a fence that provides security, while adding a touch of elegance to the property. This type of fence may be perfect for businesses that are looking to add a more aesthetic appeal.

Ornamental fences are very durable against weather, corrosion, and rust making them last a long time for your business. Restaurants, state parks, and large businesses are just a few of the industries we have worked with in installing an ornamental fence.
