Locating the best fencing company can be a troublesome task. Picking the type of fence suitable for your property from various materials and styles is part of this tough situation. Therefore, it is of utmost importance for homeowners to be very informed about finding the best and most qualified fence company they can trust to get the job done right.
Understand that the price is not a good signifier of the level of experience, skill and honesty that a licensed fencing contractor needs. Consider the following questions when deciding, besides your budget.
Here are some questions to ask when you are getting your vinyl fence installed.
How Long Has Your Company Been In Business?
When you choose a vinyl fence for your property, then you should be able to get an idea of your potential contractor’s business history. You should conduct an internet search for their company to get the bigger picture and any information about the people who work there. Look for anything that might point to a bad reputation and bring these up when you speak with the company directly.
You should also carefully read through the customer reviews of different vinyl fence installation companies. There are many different local review sites you can rely on that have dependable information. You should preferably pick a fencing company that has positive reviews and a professional history that goes back at least five years unless you know the contractor personally.
Do You Give References From Satisfied Customers?
Many good vinyl fence contractors will present their references as a part of their proposal or their professional portfolio. The best will also include pictures of previous installations and any contact information of former clients, which can directly show the high quality of their work. If you have not already done so, you should follow up by using that contact information and checking ratings and reviews online as well.
What Is The Installation Warranty That You Offer?
Your warranty will depend on specific things like the material of the fence, the manufacturer and the contractor. Many fencing companies will offer two to five-year warranties on the actual installation. Manufacturers of vinyl fencing will usually offer limited lifetime warranties on their products. Some might offer transferable warranties, which can be reassigned to new owners if you sell your property. Be sure that you have a good understanding of your warranty terms and make sure that you have all of the warranty documentation included within your contract.
