Be Sure to Ask Your Fencing Contractor These Questions

Adding a fence to your property, or updating an existing fence is a great way to invest in your home. According to the publication Remodeling Costs, you can expect to receive around 50% of your total fencing project cost if you decide to sell your home. That's a pretty good return on your investment. To get the best results, you need to work with a fencing professional. Here are a few questions you should ask the contractor first.

What Type of Fences Do You Install?

There are many different types of fences available. If you already have a type of fence in mind, then you'll want to make sure you connect with a contractor that can install that type. If you aren't sure what you want, this is a good chance to learn about what's available and what the contractor specializes in.

Do You Provide Price Quotes?

Getting a quote for the work you need to be done is important. This is your chance to get more information on the project, work on budgeting the project, and get to know the contractor a little better. Make sure you get any price quotes in writing. This will reduce confusion in the future. You don't want to get charged for something you weren't expecting.

How Do You Guarantee Your Work?

The quality of the fence and the quality of the fence installation will affect the appearance of your house and the value of your home in general. For these reasons, you want to make sure you have some type of guarantee for the work being provided. You need to also get this information in writing as well. Having your information in writing helps to protect you from misunderstandings.

How Long Have You Been in Business?

The answer to this question will give you some idea of how much experience the fence contractor has. You want to hire skilled professionals who know what they are doing. A poorly installed fence can become very unattractive very quickly. More importantly, though, a poorly installed fence is a safety issue on your property. The fence could fall and injure someone. If it's not securely installed it won't provide the level of security you want for your property either. One of the main functions of most fences is to provide security to a property.

These are just a few questions you might want to ask a fence contractor before you hire them. If you're looking for fencing professionals in your area, please contact our team at Index Fence INC today. We look forward to hearing from you.
