Fence Installation Process

Cedar Rustic Fence Co. strives to make the purchase and installation of your new fence as enjoyable as possible. We’ve outlined what you should expect when getting a fence from our trusted experts at the Cedar Rustic Fence Company.

Step 1

Consultation Design A Fence

Everything starts with a free in-home consultation. You can contact us at 800-262-0388 or via contact form. From there, a friendly sales representative will come to your home to help you select a fence style that fits your needs.

When you’re happy with your fence selection, review and sign the contract and place a deposit with our team. An installation date will then be scheduled.

Most fence installations are done in a day. However, sometimes unforeseen circumstances may require a little more time to complete your fence. We’ll keep you posted on the timeline.

  • Can you provide an online fence estimate?  

    We’d be happy to provide you with a free estimate because our top priority is your satisfaction. Keep in mind that online tools can't factor in unique property features like slopes, hidden obstacles, or soil type. Only an in-person assessment ensures your estimate is accurate and your fence project runs smoothly.

Step 2

Permits and Authorizations

Most townships today require a permit prior to the installation of a new fence. Usually, a copy of your plat of survey and a contract for the fence is all that is needed for a permit. Please check with your local building department for additional information or specific requirements they may have.

We also recommend that you check with your homeowner’s association to see if there are any restrictions prior to building your fence.

Please notify Cedar Rustic if there are any township or association restrictions that we need to consider when building your fence.

  • What if my HOA has specific fence restrictions?

    We have extensive experience working within HOA guidelines. Let us know your association's rules, and we'll design a fence that meets their requirements while enhancing your property.

Step 3


After your fence has been approved by your village and HOA and we have received a deposit. We will manufacture your fence in our 100,000 square foot manufacturing facility in Joliet. 

  • How do you guarantee the quality of your fences?

    At Cedar Rustic Fence Co., we control every step of production in our Joliet facility, using high-grade materials and strict quality checks. This ensures that each fence is robust, durable, and built to last.

Step 4


Two to seven days before the installation of your fence, Cedar Rustic will notify J.U.L.I.E (Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavators). If you live in Indiana, we ask you to call Diggers (1.800.382.5544). J.U.L.I.E. and Diggers will instruct local utility companies to locate their underground facilities in your yard. Please leave all flags and markings in your yard until the fence installation is complete.

Cedar Rustic Fence Co. will take care of scheduling all required inspections.

During the day of installation, your crew chief will meet with you in the morning to review the placement of your fence. Please provide a copy of your plat of survey to your crew chief so he can establish your property.

We recommend but don’t require you to be home during the installation. If you are unable to be home please make sure we have a valid phone number to contact you with any questions.

  • Will the installation damage my landscaping?

    Our crews respect your property, minimizing disruption to existing plants. Rest assured that we'll discuss any areas of concern before we start. We will need about 2 feet on the inside of the fence to work. This will be covered during our free estimate.

Step 5


When our authorized installers have completed installing your fence, your crew chief will review the job with you making sure you are satisfied with our work

Final payment or financing paperwork is due upon completion of the fence.

All of our fences come with extensive warranties: a three-year warranty on the workmanship and installation of the fence. Our gates are warrantied for one year. Our aluminum and vinyl products have a limited lifetime warranty on the material. If you have any problems with the fence after installation, don’t hesitate to call us and we’ll work hard to resolve your issue.

    The salesman Alberto was answered all my questions. He was honest and not pushy at all. The install crew did an awesome job on the fence. Their attention to detail, craftsmanship and neatness was top notch. Very well built gate with a high quality latch hardware. Highly recommended!

  • Christine Chimera

    Cedar Rustic did an amazing job from the product team who came to our house to survey the area to give us a quote, to the installers, to the finance team to called us about the bill. The fence looks beautiful! The people who put the fence up followed our complicated instructions on how to redraw the fence along a new property line and they even cut around tree roots to sit flush again the property line while not damaging the trees.

    The project manager Anthony Ramirez was incredible, kind, and patient. Anthony did everything to make a stressful project easy. His crew came right in and worked all day to finish our fence in one working day. The pricing was also the best out of 5 other fencing companies along with great material, cedar. Our fence is absolutely gorgeous. Thanks to Anthony and his crew. Great customer service and work ethic.Brenda
