Here Are Our Top 3 Tips When Hiring a Fencing Contractor.
As experts in the fencing industry for over 26 years here in Florida, we know a thing or two about planning, products, materials, researching, installations, permitting and just about anything else fence related.
We know how hard it can be in the service industry, to find a company you can trust and a fencing contractor that will do the job fast and right when you are ready to pull the trigger.
Today we have a simple article for you and just want to quickly share our Top 3 tips on What To Look For When Hiring A Fence Installer.
We hope these are helpful in finding a company you can trust. And certainly, if you decide to install a fence yourself (DIY), you'll give us a call for all your fencing needs.
So here they are, our top 3 tips:
1. Make sure the fencing company you are considering is established.
We recommend that unless the company you're considering has multiple references or you have seen their work first-hand, we suggest only working with fencing companies that have actively been in business for 5 years or more.
Simple ways to check this include:
- Check their online reviews.
- Check the Florida sunbiz website for their registration status.
- And certainly ask for their licensing information.
2. Make sure they are experienced in your type of fencing.
Whether you are looking for vinyl, chain link or aluminum fencing, make sure the company has experience and examples of the type of fencing you are hiring them for.
And if you hire them for a large property or commercial job, make sure they have done a similar sized or commercial project before.
Not to say a company can't do a fence on 5 acres same as a 1 acre job, but don't feel bad requesting examples to ensure that they can do what you are asking and do it right the first time, and without taking out your water main, for example.
3. Make Sure They Offer Safe Payment Terms
Never give a deposit upfront unless it's a special order. With so many fencing companies out there, this is a really easy way to save yourself the trouble of getting scammed with no one showing up on installation day.
There are many other steps you can take to ensure you end up working with a legitimate fencing company to get your project done in a timely manner and to your requirements but these 3 tips will help you cover the basics.
