Montage ornamental steel fences are popular with developers for its maintenance free coating and durable steel construction. Many prefer Montage ornamental fences over aluminum fencing for the additional strength that a welded steel fence has compared to aluminum fences.
Residential Montage decorative fencing has an E-coat maintenance-free finish and a 20 year warranty. The welded metal fence panel of the Montage has the ability to follow the steepest of grades, that is, to be installed along a slope without unsightly “stair stepping” of the fence panels. That’s because of the unique rail design. All fences in the Montage family of products have the ability to traverse 48” over an 8’ span. Review the following features of Montage in the column at right to learn more about why so many have homeowners have decided to install Montage fences on their properties.
All members of the Montage® family of fence products are manufactured with ProFusion technology. ProFusion is the revolutionary automatic process that combines fusion and laser technology to effect simultaneous welding of all pickets and rails in a panel in mere seconds. Pre-punched rails allow for picket insertion through the centerline of the rail; facilitating a “good-neighbor” profile with an identically smooth streamlined contour on both sides of the fence. The process ensures rigid, yet virtually invisible, structural connections with no unsightly exposed fasteners.
Major corrosion problems start from the inside.That’s why all members of the Montage® family of products are coated inside and outside. This is unlike all other fence products in America which are only coated on the outside.
Galvanized steel framework is subjected to a multi-stage pre-treatment/wash (with zinc phosphate), followed by a duplex cathodic electrocoat system consisting of an epoxy primer, which significantly increases corrosion protection, and an acrylic topcoat, which provides the protection necessary to withstand adverse weathering effects.
All members of the Montage® family of fencing products follow grades up to a 30 degree rise in an 8 foot run. The All Terrain Flexibility (ATF) panel design enables the maximum bias for all Montage® ornamental picket styles. It’s the only welded steel fence with the ability to adapt to severe grade changes, closely following the most uneven ground contours”
Tips on Choosing Your Fence Contractor
Fence companies that install Ameristar products are independent contractors. Since you may not have a lot of experience hiring contractors to work around your house, here are some important tips to follow when selecting one to help you get your money’s worth.
Communication: Be precise, so that the contractor understands exactly what you want done. Effective communication enables contractors to quote on performing the same work with the same materials.
Competitive Bids: If possible, find two or three contractors to quote on your project. This allows you to choose the one that offers you the best value. This is not necessarily the contractor with the lowest price. A company’s reputation, workmanship and warranty should always be considered along with the price. Be wary if one price is significantly lower than the others. Try to determine why the cost difference is so great. Remember, you generally get what you pay for.
Insurance: Most states require contractors to have worker’s compensation, liability, and property damage insurance. Some contractors try to lower their costs by not carrying insurance. This may place you at a legal risk, so make sure your contractor has all of the necessary insurance.
References: Ask for references from your contractors, along with recent installation sites. Inspect them to get a sense of the contractor’s workmanship. Quality may be the main reason one contractor’s price is higher (or lower) than the rest.
Contract: Get the contract in writing! It should include a full description of the job, a payment schedule, and an estimated time of completion. If you want to purchase a Ameristar fence, make sure it is explicitly stated in the contract. Do not sign any contract which states that “Ameristar-type” fence will be installed. Language such as this allows the contractor to substitute generic materials without your approval. (The Ameristar logo can be found on every post cap, gate and rail that we sell. This allows you to easily confirm that you have received genuine Ameristar products.)
Payment Schedule: Most contractors require a deposit before starting a job, but payment schedules vary. Some contractors ask for 50% down and 50% upon completion, while others request 1/3 down, 1/3 during installation and the balance upon completion.
Project Changes: If your project should change in any form, it is important to note this in the contract. This allows for revised prices and time tables to be set. What seems to be a minor alteration may cause the contractor to incur significant unexpected costs and delays. Try to keep changes to a minimum for this reason.
We hope that these suggestions make choosing your contractor a little easier. Remember, if you have any other questions concerning a contractor, you can contact your local Chamber of Commerce or Better Business Bureau for additional information. There are plenty of good contractors around, so try to find the one that suits your needs best. Good luck!
