Looking for a fence company and you’re not sure how to choose the right one? According to IBISWorld, as of 2023, there are an estimated 319,000 fence construction companies in the United States. That’s a lot to choose from! Here are a few tips to follow when you’re choosing your fence company.
Not all contractors are created equally. Before hiring anyone to work on your home, you’ll want to do your due diligence and learn about their experience. You can learn about the company through its website. You might be surprised by just how much information you can glean by asking the fence company a few open-ended questions. Be sure to ask them plenty of questions about how long they’ve been in business and what projects they’ve worked on before. If there’s any type of complexity with your project, you’ll want to ensure that the company has the relevant expertise.
Ask for References
Once you have a short list of potential companies, you can ask each of them for a few references. Most people get this far and then just go ahead and choose a company. Once you have the references, it’s important to contact them. You can find out a lot by speaking to past customers. Prepare a list of questions beforehand to ensure that you get all of the information you want.
Now that your list only includes two or three potential companies, it’s time to ask for written estimates. These estimates should be clear and straightforward and include the full details of your project. While most decisions don’t come down to cost, there’s also no need to overpay for services. Once you have gotten to this stage in the process, there’ll likely be one company that begins to stand out. If you need more information to make your decision, the way a company conducts its business is another deciding factor. Do they communicate the way you need them to? Is the team helpful and prompt in providing answers to your questions? Consider these questions as well when you’re comparing the cost of services.
