If you’re looking for someone to build your fence, there are a few things you may want to know before hiring them. Like any other service industry, you want to make sure you’re dealing with someone who’s reputable. Although you’ll want to stay away from salespeople and contractors who ask for big lumps of money up-front, asking for a deposit is a common practice among fencing companies. If the company requires a deposit, make an agreement that you’ll give it to them the day they begin work, not the day you sign the contract. This will ensure they’ll show up with materials and be ready to work.
Another good tip is to find out if the contractor is bonded and licensed. Either the Department of Labor and Industries or the Construction Contractors Board can assist you in getting this information. You will also want to check and see if the fence contractor is part of a local trade association. When contractors are part of organizations like the Better Business Bureau, it shows they care about what customers have to say.
You should get multiple estimates from fence contractors, as well. Try to get at least three. You don’t want to go with the cheapest company; you want to check and see how much the company is charging you versus what the materials are worth. Within each estimate you will find the material and labor costs.
Within the estimate should also be a statement of exactly what will take place and the length of time being allotted for work. Ask for former customers’ phone numbers. You can also visit some of the homes the company has built fences for and check out the quality of the work. Take your time when looking for the right fence contractor. Your fence will last a long time if you get it right from the beginning.
