Hiring a contractor to do any work on your property can be daunting. The right contractor can make the difference between an investment that you can enjoy for years to come, and a liability requiring constant repairs and maintenance. But, how do you know who’s the right person for the job? Here are a few things to look for when choosing a fence contractor:
Are They Licensed and Insured?
It’s not uncommon to fall prey to a fly-by-night contractor who is eager to take your money and run, or cut as many corners as possible. One way to weed out the imposters and to verify a contractor’s legitimacy is to make sure they are fully licensed and insured.
Do They Offer Warranties & Financing?
Financing can be great way to get necessary home improvements completed without the high up-front cost. Most contractors who have a good reputation will offer financing options that allow you to pay installments after the job is completed. Additionally, warranties that are included in the cost of your fencing installation are a clear indication that a contractor is willing to stand behind the quality of their work.
Check Reviews and References
References and reviews are a great way to gauge whether or not a fencing contractor has a reputation for leaving their customers satisfied. If you can’t find any reviews for fencing company online, or they are unable to provide references, that’s typically a bad sign.
Communication is Key
Having work done on your property inevitably results in a number of inconveniences. Scheduling around your busy life, noise, and having to accommodate builders during the construction process can be a hassle. But, with good communication, these minor annoyances can be avoided. If a contractor seems unreliable and difficult to communicate with early on in the process, maybe it’s time to consider choosing a company that’s responsive, reliable and goes the extra mile to make the process hassle-free.
