Several steps are necessary before saying “yes” to a fence contractor. Research is essential because so many fence installation companies exist. However, some companies will stand out more than others. For example, Hercules Fence started in 1955, meaning we have nearly seven decades of experience. That kind of longevity is one of many reasons Hercules Fence is credible. Here are four questions that you can ask us and should ask before hiring a fence contractor.
How Does a Fence Contractor Communicate?
Any fencing company should give you all the answers you need without hesitation. You’ll have to understand many details to ensure you receive the best products and services. A rude tone is a red flag. If the contractor seems testy or impatient when you ask questions, it’s best to hire another company. Naturally, a contractor should have an extensive knowledge of the products and services offered. However, they should also be pleasant.
How Much Experience Does the Company Have?
Fence installation should be efficient, and only a company with experience can execute that. Once again, we have tens of decades of experience, and our expertise goes farther than the residential realm. We’ve expertly built fences and other safety perimeters such as bollards and dumpster enclosures around commercial and government facilities. We’ve even worked on the I-95 overpass.
Is There a Portfolio?
While our portfolio doesn’t fully capture our beautiful and high-quality work, it’s still worth exploring. If a company doesn’t have any proof of its work, it’s impossible to make a good judgment call. You want to ensure that a fence contractor can handle your project’s scope. For example, you might be interested in intricate lattice fencing, and if you see nothing like that on the website, it can be a deterrent. However, it’s also good to consider that fence companies are busy. It’s impossible to upload every project on the website. Therefore, you can also look to Google reviews where customers upload past projects. In addition, the best rule of thumb is to show your fence contractor images of the exact fence you want, so there aren’t any discrepancies. You don’t deserve anything less than your dream fence.
Are There any Testimonials?
Once again, it would be best if you utilized Google reviews. They offer an unbiased account of customer experiences. As mentioned, some customers upload pictures of their fences. Also, they share details about if the company is worth hiring.
