We believe that our quality customer service makes a difference, and want to help our clients make the best choices for their properties. We walk through the process with each customer to help them know what to expect and make smart buying choices that they’ll be happy with for the lifetime of their fence. Below are just a few of the tips we provide prior to fencing installation that can help you with a better fencing experience:
The purpose of your fence is more important than the look.
Many people fall in love with a particular style of fencing before considering whether it will be effective for their intended use. For example, you may love the look of aluminum but have a pet that can easily escape through its bars. Before you set your mind to a style, consider the practical purpose of your fence and the best material for that use.
Don’t over or under budget.
Fencing can last 10 to 20 years or more on your property, so it’s not something you want to skimp on if you can’t afford what you want right now. Choose a fencing option that you’ll love for years to come. On the flip side, you don’t want to overextend your budget for the sake of purchasing something trendy. There is nothing wrong with a standard wooden or vinyl fence that’s plain and affordable.
Be aware of maintenance.
Some fencing materials require more maintenance than others. If you’re not one who enjoys yard work, you may want to opt for a low-maintenance option. Fencing will last five to ten years longer if well-maintained, so don’t take this consideration lightly.
Ask your neighbors first.
If you’re building a boundary fence, it’s common courtesy to go over the plans with neighbors first. This ensures that they are aware of your plans and if they have any major dislikes that you can be respectful of these. For example, they may not be a fan of trendy colors or the maintenance of certain fence materials. While you don’t have to make your decision with them, you can maintain a favorable relationship if you keep communications open.
