Posted on October 15th, 2014

Do You Know Your Contractor?

When thinking of renovating your home it is important to not forget about revamping the exterior. Immediately you may think of adding plants, a new walk way, new paint, and perhaps new porch furniture. Another great addition is to add a fence around the perimeter. Now you may be asking, “How in the world do I choose a Fence Contractor?” Good question. When thinking of enduring fence installation there are few a questions you should always ask a fence contractor.


How long has the company been in business? – I think Shakespeare said it best with, “Experience is by industry achieved, and perfected by the swift course of time.” Longevity in a business, especially in the fencing industry, is proof of their professionalism, knowledge, and high level of craftsmanship. Be wary of exploring the services of a young company without many recommendations.

Accountability and Insurance – We highly advise obtaining recommendations from family and friends. Ask about the quality of service, materials, and if the company completed the fence installation on time. Be careful about relying solely on internet reviews.

Another important detail to inquire about is whether the company is insured. This will give you peace of mind knowing you will not be personally liable if anything were to go wrong with the fence installation. A reputable company will have their legal matters in order.

What type of fencing would you like?– It is a good idea to review the stock of the fencing contractor you are considering. If they have to order your desired material it may require waiting longer than anticipated to get your fenced installed.

Remember, to ensure you have the greatest experience don’t be afraid to ask the right questions. When you are ready to explore your options contact us here at Fence Maintenance Service and we will be glad to help you!
