You need to make sure you’re hiring the right Oak Hill fence company for your fence installation. Ask the right questions before you hire somebody.
When it comes to hiring an Oak Hill fence company, it’s important to find the right company to install your fence. How in-depth you decide to go to vet a company before hiring them is up to you, but our team at Superior Fence & Rail of Nashville believes there are certain questions that you should ask to make sure you’re working with a trustworthy company. Read on for some tips.
What all do you include in your estimate?
An estimate from a contractor can be incredibly vague. Whether they decide to provide you with a single number that encompasses the entirety of the project or an idea of what it would cost to get the fence installed, you’re going to want to ask for a breakdown of costs. This includes materials, labor, travel time for the contractor and the crew, as well as any other areas where they’re going to charge you. In addition to labor costs, take into account the total cost of materials that will be included with the original estimate.
Do you hire subcontractors?
It’s not uncommon for fencing companies to subcontract out fence installations. While this is often a more efficient and affordable way for them to get the job done, you could end up getting the short end of the stick. A contractor who has their own crew that’s directly involved with your fence installation will be able to hold them accountable more easily than if the work is subcontracted out. Furthermore, a fence company has more at stake by having their own crews perform an installation as it’s their reputation on the line rather than that of a smaller company that does the work for them.
Will you get any necessary permits for me?
Your Oak Hill fence installation can come to a screeching halt if you don’t have the necessary permits to get the work done. Establish who’s going to be obtaining the permits you need for your fence from the city early. Additionally, you should have the fence contractor speak with your HOA if you have one so that you don’t have to make adjustments or completely reinstall the fence because it doesn’t meet the standards they’ve set.
Where do you get the fencing materials?
Fence builders can get the materials for your fence installation from a variety of places. Some will work directly with the manufacturer to get you the best price as well as posts and pickets that were made in the same lot. Other contractors will simply go to the nearest big-box store and buy what they have available on the shelf. Knowing where your materials come from should be a determining factor in who you work with as warranties and the quality of materials can be vastly different.
