8 Key Considerations When Hiring A Fence Contractor


January 29th, 2021   Category: Fence Design

When you think about your property, one of if not the first thing you think of is how you’re going to protect the property. Whether it is a commercial or personal property the goal is the same: To keep the things that belong inside in and keep those unwanted invaders out. There are many routes that you can take to go about this but when considering getting fencing for your home or business, you should really consider hiring a professional contractor. Why hire a professional over doing it yourself you ask? Well here are eight reasons why a contractor is the right way to go for your upcoming project.

Experience: The first reason goes without saying but the more experience that you have in an area of expertise, the more efficient and properly executed your project will be handled. The old adage of experience over age definitely applies when it comes to these types of projects. 

Types of Materials Needed: A professional fence contractor can recommend the best option for your specific situation. Not everyone needs a chain link fence and not everyone needs an industrial fence either. A licensed contractor take all the details into consideration before making a recommendation

Completion: We have all heard a horror story, of how a supposed “professional” left someone with a mess in their yard, a fence that is poorly installed, or worse, left the job incomplete. A good contractor will oversee your project from start to finish ensuring that it is done correctly

Professional Quote: A company with the experience needed to not only properly quote your fence project, but will listen to your wants, needs, and the goals you have for your yard. This will keep the project scope in the budget you were quoted, without surprise charges along the way.

Free Estimates: Speaking to the point above, getting an estimate on just how much a project can run you is daunting on your own. Where you as an individual would be paying more out of pocket for materials, a contractor has connections and generally can give you your best pricing by surveying your project, taking measurements, and then price out what the project could run you financially and with a time of completion. 

Versatility:  Most contractors do fencing for both residential and commercial businesses using different styles, sizes, and materials. A portfolio of their work is also available on their websites, in office, or in reviews online for their company demonstrating just how they can cater to the needs of their customers

Preservation/Maintenance: A good contractor will not only help you accomplish your vision but also help you to preserve your new investment and give you instructions on how to best keep your fencing/locks/mechanisms in tip-top shape so things don’t fail when you least expect it. 

Special Orders: Maybe you’re looking for something that you don’t see at your local hardware store or chain retailer. A contractor can help you with your design choices and pair you up with exactly what you’re in the market for. 

Bonus: Contractors handle all of the heavy lifting, take care of all of the cleanup and do all of the work so that you can just relax and watch your vision come to life.
