It can be challenging to choose a fence company because so many exist. You might even feel tempted to tackle fence installation yourself because so many DIY videos are on the Internet. However, we advise against that because you could potentially spend a lot of time and money attempting to build your dream fence. However, fence installation is a process that professionals should execute. The procedure can be intricate. You should hire a credible fence company with years of expertise in the fencing industry, such as Hercules Fence. Here is what to consider when choosing which fence company to hire.
Consider if a Fence Company is Credible
Every home or business owner should research the fence company they plan to hire. Look for reviews, testimonials, and a portfolio. If you discover that a company has mostly negative reviews or there aren’t any, this is a red flag. In good faith, customers are optimistic, believing that they’ll love the finished product. However, this isn’t always the case. Another factor to consider is how a company resolves issues with dissatisfied customers. You have every right to ask, “What policies do you have if I don’t like my fence?”
Ensure Your Budget Aligns with the Installation Cost
While some home and business owners pay for their fence outright, others go with a financing plan. You should call and ask for an estimate to see if the installation cost aligns with your budget. You also want to know what types of payments are accepted (cash, checks, credits), when payment is due, and if there is a deposit fee.
Find Out if the Fence Company Offers Warranties
While we install durable, high-quality fences, customers should feel relieved knowing that they’ll be covered if a product experiences wear and tear. Valuable questions to ask any business are:
- Will this warranty replace, fix, or offer a better product if this one fails?
- Are there any exceptions or restrictions?
- What is the turnaround time?
Figure Out if a Business Can Handle the Scope of Your Project
Most fence installation companies, like Hercules Fence, offer various specialties from residential to commercial to government facility projects. Our bandwidth goes far beyond wood, vinyl, and aluminum fence installation. For example, some of our signature projects include glass fences, carousel enclosures, and bike racks. Even with that in mind, it’s never safe to assume that a company can replicate your dream fence. What’s always helpful is providing an image of your dream fence and determining if a business can handle the scope of your project.
