More often than not, installing a fence is a huge undertaking. Installing a fence requires an immense amount of skill and experience for a proper installation. And depending on the type of fence you want, there are a few very important things you need to take into account when looking for a fence contractor to hire.
Word Of Mouth Is The Best Reference
Does your neighbor have a brand new wooden fence that you’ve been envious of for years now? What better time to make a new friend than now, over fence talk. Ask who did their fence installation and get all the information that you can. Ask all the questions you want to know, like how easy was the contractor was to work with? Was the price reasonable, and how was their fence selection; was it large or small? But also feel free to shop around. Call each of the prospective contractors that you’ve found and compare them to one another. By giving them a description of your planned project, they will be able to tell you whether or not that is a project that they can handle. You’ll want to make sure to ask them about their availability, pricing, and inventory. In addition, don’t be afraid to ask about any protection, such as warranties and whether or not they are licensed and insured to perform the duties you will be hiring them to perform.
Get An Estimate
When shopping around, you will want to make sure that all the possible contractors you speak with give you a rough estimate on the project you want to be completed. Once you finally narrow down your list to just a couple contractors, you have a better idea of what the potential cost to you may be, and it might just make the deciding process a little easier if you have a specific budget you are dealing with.
Get A Contract
You always want any big project to have a coinciding contract with it. Contractor even has the word contractor in it. Make sure that once you have chosen your contractor and finalized all the details of the project with him, that you get all that information in writing, signed by both parties. If you decide to make changes as the project progresses, simply add it into the contract, but make sure that you remember that any addition or change will likely affect the total cost of the project as well.
