You made a big investment when you purchased your property and any improvements made should reflect the importance of that investment. Now that you’ve selected a high quality fence from Best Outdoor Living Products, you need to choose a fence installation company.
Steps To Take When Hiring A Fence Company
It can be difficult to determine if a fence installation company is worth hiring. Here are our tips for finding the right fence installation company.
Ask Your Neighbors Which Fencing Company They Used
If you have a neighbor who has the same type of fence previously installed be sure to ask them for a recommendation – especially if their fence was installed several years ago and is still in excellent condition.
Ask about their personal experience with the company and how the installation process went. Be sure to ask about any concerns they had or issues they’ve had since having their fence installed.
Make A List Of Contractors And Research Them
Always make a long list of possible options. Google and other search engines are your friend! Be sure to do online research looking for reviews. Look for both positive and negative reviews, as well as any that specifically mention the type of fencing you plan on having installed.
Obtain Several Quotes
You should never go with the first contractor you speak to until you’ve had the opportunity to speak with and obtain quotes from several others. Don’t be afraid to ask any questions that come to mind and ask for references. Be sure to get the quote in writing and ask how long the quote is good for.
Here are a few questions that you should ask each fence installer:
- Do you offer a warranty on your work?
- How quickly can you begin the installation?
- How long will the entire process take?
- Who handles the process of obtaining a permit?
- What is included in the quote – will I need to purchase any additional materials?
- Do you see any challenges that might make it difficult to install a fence on my property?
- Are you insured and licensed?
The last question is perhaps the most important one. Never work with a fence installation company that isn’t up-to-date on their license and insurance.
First Impressions Do Matter
If you have a negative first impression, trust that feeling. A fence installation company should be prepared to sell you on the reasons why they are the right team for the job – and have proof to back those claims up.
