Any fencing contractor you choose must be reputable, fair, and skilled.

If you hope to install a new or replacement fence around your yard this summer, now is the time to find the right fencing contractor to meet your needs. This process can be more than a little intimidating. First, you know you don’t want to pay too much, since fences can get wildly expensive very quickly, but you also want a sturdy and secure fence built by a company that you can trust. The fencing contractor you choose must be reputable, fair and skilled. But with so many different fencing companies out there, how can you be sure that you’re choosing the right one for your fencing installation? Read on for tips on what to look for in your residential fencing contractor. 


Look For A Good Reputation

A good reputation is one of the first things you want to look for. Many people assume that if you’ve heard of a company that wasn’t bad, they probably will do a good job. This isn’t always the case. Always start by asking people in your life that you trust for their recommendations for any contractor. If you have friends or family who have recently had a fence installed, they can be a good resource. If your neighbor just had a fence installed, ask who they used and why they chose them. Once you have a few contractors to check out, look up their reviews online and on the Better Business Bureau, and call the companies and ask for references. Once you have references, actually reach out to them and ask questions about the quality of work, how the contractor is to work with, and if their expectations were met. 

Look For Experience and Expertise

Just because a company is new doesn’t mean it is bad; similarly, just because a company is established doesn’t mean it is great. However, generally, if a business can stick around and keep installing fences year after year, they are probably doing pretty good work. Look for a company with not only years of experience but also expertise in different materials and fencing styles. You want to make sure you’re getting the right fence for your needs, not the fence that is easiest or cheapest for the contractor to build. 

Look For Clear Communication

Once you contact a prospective contractor, pay attention to how they communicate. Are they open to answering your questions, showing proof of insurance and licensure, and providing a free estimate? Do they seem knowledgeable about the type of fence you want and your area’s requirements (like permitting)? If they blow you off, act condescending, or only talk to your spouse, choose a different contractor.
