What to Know Before You Hire a Fence Contractor

The right fence contractor will do everything they can to make sure you’re happy with your new fence!

Many aspects of residential fencing can be a lot of fun—deciding what color to paint your new wooden fence, installing gorgeous hanging baskets of flowers along the length, or stringing fairy lights along the length for a beautiful nighttime scene. One of the less-than-glamorous parts is hiring the fence contractor. Here are some of our top tips for choosing the right fence contractor for your fence installation.

Ask Around

Do any of your neighbors have enviable fences? Ask them who installed the fence, how the installation process went, and if they are happy with the result. Depending on your comfort level, you can also ask them a ballpark of the final cost and how well the fence contractor stuck to the proposed budget. How was the cleanup process? Did their workers arrive on time and conduct themselves in a professional manner? Once you get a list, call around and ask about their pricing, warranties, qualifications, and insurance.

Get Some Estimates

Once you have between 3-5 fence contractors on your short list, get a detailed estimate from each one. Expect to schedule an appointment for them to visit your property, assess your land, take measurements, and discuss any particular concerns that you have. Is there sloping on your property? Will your fence be facing another neighbor’s fence? Do you need a high security or privacy fence? The right fence contractor will ask questions to make sure you get what you want.

Stay Above the Law

Some homeowners don’t realize that installing a fence means dealing with laws and regulations, but it does! Make sure that you or your fence contractor obtains the right permits from your municipality or homeowners’ association before you start the project. If you rush ahead, you might be in for a stack of hefty fines instead of a stack of lumber.
