A fence is the gateway to the home you love. It not only protects the people you love, but it also frames your home and is the first thing that visitors see when they pull up to your house. For this reason, when you decide to install a fence on your property, you need to be sure that you’re hiring only the best fencing company to do the job.

Sadly, many homeowners think that hiring a fencing contractor is as simple as going through the Yellow Pages and calling a number. It’s not that simple, and you should really do your homework before choosing a contractor to install your fence. In the blog below, we’ll give you a few tips for hiring the right fencing contractor for the job.

Know What Projects the Contractor Can Handle

Whether you’re looking for that white picket fence to make your home look cute and adorable or an aluminum fence to keep out stray animals and intruders, there are a few things a fencing contractor should be able to handle with ease. We’ll give you a list of these tasks in the bullet list below.

  • Consultations
  • Fence design recommendations
  • Material recommendations
  • Customizations
  • Fence building
  • Fence installation
  • Permits for zoning and building
  • Fence/gate repairs and maintenance
  • Fence gate installation, design, and building
  • Utility and boundary marking

If the fencing contractor you’re considering can’t do the above things, then it’s probably best to continue on to the next potential contractor on your list.

Ask for Recommendations

The best way to find a reputable, reliable fencing contractor is by asking people you know for recommendations. Talk to your family, friends, co-workers, and even your neighbors to see who they used to install their fences.

However, don’t just take the first recommendation you get. Instead, make a list and then do your own research as well.

Do Your Research

Now that you have a list of recommendations, you need to do your research. Call the fencing contractors you’re interested in, and see if they do the tasks above, then talk to them about what you want done. Never schedule the fence installation over the phone. It’s important that someone come out and give you a quote in person.

Ask for References

Once you’ve done your research, ask the fencing contractors you’re considering to give you three references from past or present customers. Talk to these customers to see if they are satisfied with the service they receive. Once you’ve done that, narrow your list down to the top three contractors, and schedule appointments for consultations with all three.

Schedule a Consultation

Schedule consultations with the top three contractors, then show them what you want. The contractor should help you with design, materials, and pricing. While you, of course, want the best price for the highest quality, it is important to remember you get what you pay for.

Wrap Up

These are just a few tips for helping you hire the best contractor to install your new fence. Remember, do your research well, don’t go for the cheapest price, over the highest quality, and never schedule an installation over the phone, and you will be fine.
