One of the most important things when making any purchase is your experience. Having a fence installed is more than just a purchase: you’re trusting someone to do work at your home. As with any purchase, you’re spending money and making an investment, which means you need to be careful about where, how and who that money is spent with.
There are a few things to look for when you’re choosing a fence company but here are our Top 5 Factors to Consider when you’re hiring an NJ fence company.
1. Are they kind and helpful when you speak with them?
Whether you’re calling by phone or visiting the location, getting a feel of the business will help you make your decision in the end. Are they attentive and receptive to your questions, needs and requests? Or, do they seem annoyed? The little things can go a long way and quite simply it’s not worth your time to waste on a company with bad manners.
2. Is the fence estimate scheduled in a timely manner?
We all lead incredibly busy lives, which is also perhaps one of the reasons you’re looking at having a fence installed in New Jersey. While the demeanor and your budget play a big role in your decision, finding out the cost of a project should be a simple step along the way. You’ll want to make sure that your estimate is scheduled in a kind and timely manner. It shouldn’t be your job to hunt anyone down in this situation.
3. Cost v. Quality
One of the most important steps in choosing a fence contractor is deciding just what you’re paying for. Do you want to work with a company that’s generally easy to deal with, or would you rather spend less and have a less pleasant experience? The same goes for the quality of the materials.
4. Is there financing available if you need it?
Don’t want to pay for your whole fence up front? Understandable! If this is the case, you’ll want to work with a fencing company that has financing available—and just like getting an estimate, this is information you’ll need early on in order to make your decision.
5. Does the fence company use high quality materials?
If you’re investing in a fence, you should make sure it will last. See whether the company offers a good warranty. Most will warranty their fences for one year, but if they’re willing to go beyond that, this is a sign they stand behind the materials they use. It also allows you to feel confident that you’ll have their help even if something does go wrong.
