The right fence sets the boundaries of an outdoor oasis. There are plenty of factors that need to be understood before the install. These guidelines and descriptions will help before using our instant online quote tool to give the best and most accurate quote.
- 6’ tall wood privacy (stockade) is approximately $14 L.F installed. The wood stockade style is one of the most common installed fences. This fence is perfect for giving families the privacy and safety they deserve while keeping the project under budget
When installing this fence there are some things to keep in mind:
This type of fence will need to be stained or sealed every three years. After pickets shrink in the sun a for few days, the stockade style can leave small gaps between the boards.
If total privacy is a must:
- A 6’ tall “board on board” wood fence is approximately $16 L.F. This style is a nice upgrade from the stockade style. It provides both privacy and it has nice aesthetics: However, it will still require regular maintenance.
If pure aesthetics is more important:
- A 6’ tall wood shadow box is approximately $16 per L.F. Often times this fence is known as the most aesthetically pleasing, and it is commonly required for HOA covenants because of its look. Although the gaps are actually the largest of all the wood fences, they allow air penetration thus making this choice great for areas with high wind loads.

Decks are usually considered the showpiece or centerpiece of the yard and rightfully so. Decks provide most of the outdoor fun and entertainment, and they can bring the outdoors in which is a popular trend in today’s design. For these reasons, it is so important to maximize beauty and design for the enjoyment of the entire family.
Wood decking will always be the staple of outdoor living. This material is the least expensive and fastest way to make decking dreams come true. When it comes to materials, wood decking has a lot of flexibility and the possibilities are limitless. Even though wood will need to be retreated or painted every few years, wood decking gives you the most flexibility when it comes to color and finish options. And if one decides to change it in the future, this change can be done easily by a home exterior professional.

Window replacement is the most unique home renovation possible. This upgrade provides the greatest increase in value to a home. Here are just a few reasons homeowners with older windows should be considering upgrading their windows this season. For starters, windows easily have one of the biggest impacts on the aesthetics of a home both on the exterior and the interior. Secondly, the average energy lost due to outdated windows in homes is anywhere from 5-20%. Obviously, with that amount of energy inefficiency, this causes the air conditioner to run harder, compensating for the lost energy in leaking out of the windows. Finally, operational effectiveness rounds out the top three. Old, worn-out windows can be frustrating to open and shut properly. Whether it’s opening a window to let the air in or opening it to clean, a properly working window will improve quality of life. Replacing windows gives the home monetary and aesthetic value, saves the homeowner money, and makes home life easier and more enjoyable. 912 HomeWorks offers a full-line of proven, reputable replacement windows and installation pros to make this job an easy, convenient one.

Things to Consider:
Your front entryway is one of the biggest style statements your home can make. So, whether you’re building new or remodeling, you want to feel confident you’ve selected the perfect style. We provide products with such a wide variety of styles and configurations that you’re sure to find several that you love. How to choose? We’ll guide you through some of the style factors to consider in designing your new door.
Your Home Style
Is your house traditional or modern? Lowcountry or coastal? Every home has an architectural style, and one of the easiest ways to get a great-looking entry is to select a door that suits your home’s design characteristics. Maybe you need a beautiful wood-grain finish in a mahogany stain to match your shutters. Or, a smooth-finished door painted a pop of bright red to complement the ceramic flower pots that grace your porch.
Boost Curb Appeal
Although you may not be thinking about selling now, keep in mind that your new door may boost your home’s perceived value if you do decide to sell later.
Choosing a Durable Door
Kids, pets, and neighbors come and go all day long. Which means that when it comes to your new door, reliability and durability matters. Make sure to choose a door that can stand up to the everyday wear and tear that life can bring.
The Fiberglass Difference
Fiberglass doors look like wood, but they don’t warp or rot like wood, or dent or rust like steel. In fact, a fiberglass door needs only a fraction of the maintenance that wood and steel doors require. Additionally, the inside of a Therma-Tru fiberglass door is filled with an exceptional heat- and cold-resistant material that helps keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer.
Engineered to Work Together
More than just a beautiful door. We offer complete door systems made to perform as well as it looks. Unlike many door companies, we make or recommend every aspect – from the glass to the hinges – to ensure durability and reliability through the years.
Tested for Endurance
Go ahead and slam the door if you want. We did – over and over – to make sure our doors, glass, and parts live up to your toughest expectations. They have been exposed to extreme weather conditions. Heavy objects have been rolled over the sills. Parts with metal finishes have been immersed in corrosive salt atmospheres. They have been exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light to make sure the weather sealing parts and metal finishes can resist deteriorating and color fading in the sun.
Raise Your Glass
How you configure your entry is another way to control your level of privacy. Selecting a door style in which the glass is placed above eye-level is an option that welcomes light while limiting the view from outside. If a solid door makes you feel even more secure, consider adding a transom (a horizontal window above the door) to your configuration to raise the glass even higher.
Security and Privacy
Security and privacy are high on everyones list of priorities when selecting a door, but no one wants to sacrifice great style to achieve them. With our system, you don’t have to. Glass styles can be characterized by how well you can see through them at a certain distance. Our vast selection of glass options lets you decide what style you want to achieve and exactly how much privacy you want.
Rain affects our homes in many different ways. Surface level effects can include water infiltration into doors and windows, dirt and grime splashed up on the walls and even rotting fascia that is constantly exposed. More insidious effects can include excess seepage into the surrounding soil. This seepage could cause topsoil erosion, triggering grass and plant removal, but also eventual foundation problems, if left unchecked. Gutters could be the answer to water issues, but definitively establishing if you need them is key. In order to do this, the pros and cons of having gutters must be weighed. If a decision is then made to install gutters, it is also helpful to examine certain factors to consider when choosing the right gutters for your home.
There are lots of benefits to installing gutters on your home including:
- Peace of Mind– Having a gutter system gives an extra layer of protection against the damage caused by rainwater. Foundation issues can be considerably reduced because the gutter system is designed to disperse water out and away from the home, instead of letting it fall and pool at the base.
- Keeping Your Home Clean– Aside from greatly reducing the chances of erosion and foundation issues, gutters also help maintain appearance by keeping mud and debris from splashing up onto the baseline of the exterior walls.
- Helping the Environment– Gutters reduce runoff that can be harmful to plants and grass in its path through soil erosion.
Because gutters are usually left open, they do require regular maintenance. In their base configuration, leaves, small branches, insects and occasionally even small animals can accumulate or nest over time. These obstructions can sometimes cause water backups or even a breaking away of the gutter system from the home. Optimistically, however, it is a lot less inexpensive to clean out your gutters than it is to have foundation or roof repairs due to water damage.
In our unique southern climate, a screened porch is a must in Savannah, Georgia and the surrounding areas. These outdoor spaces can give shelter from the heat and protect homeowners from pesky insects. Install a big outdoor ceiling fan and enjoy the added benefit of a cool breeze. All one needs now is a tall glass of sweet iced tea to really get the most out of their new screened porch.
Our preferred partner, Renaissance Patio Products, manufacture screens that stand up to the elements and the occasional roughhousing from kids. These products are infused with microban making them resistant to mold and mildew which can wear away at your screen over time.

If maintaining a view of your surroundings is important, the our line of screens offer greater outward visibility. Stay protected from insects while enjoying a crystal clear view.
