Getting a new fence installed can be exciting, but it’s important to choose the right contractor for the job to ensure that you don’t waste your money on a bad fence. Before you hire a fence installation company, be sure to ask them the following questions.
First, you’ll need to perform a background check on the company. Ask them if you can see some references.
Looking at previous projects that the company has worked on will give you an idea of the quality you can expect for your fence. Also ask to see their proof of insurance. You’ll want to look at both their general liability insurance and their workers’ compensation insurance to ensure that you don’t get sued in the case of an accident.
You should also ask a contractor about the timeline of their work process. Inquire about how long they expect the fence installation to take and at what point in the process they will need to be paid. Also be sure to avoid any contracts where you need to make a deposit of more than 50% of the total price.
As long as you do plenty of research and don’t just hire the first fence installation company you find, the installation process should go smoothly.
