Skills Needed to Become a Fence Contractor

At FloriFence, we strive to provide the best possible service to our customers in the Tampa area. This means not only providing the best selection of fence materials and customizations but sending out top-notch crews every single day. We vet our fence subcontractors very carefully and ensure that everyone who comes to your home has the skill necessary to give you a flawless fence installation. 

If you are interested in working in the fencing or construction industry, you too will be vetted intensely by the companies that hire you. If you want to make the best first impression, make sure you have these tools in your professional toolkit to succeed: 

Carpentry, metalworking, or other handyman experience

The majority of fences we build are wood or metal, which means working with these materials skillfully is a job requirement. Even the team members who don’t cut and shape the fence material are still expected to be able to construct sturdy fencing with a sound knowledge of these materials. If you don’t have any woodworking or metalworking experience, you may want to bolster your skills before joining a fence installation crew. 

Customer service skill

At FloriFence we don’t simply build fences for homeowners and business owners. We build relationships with our customers to ensure we get good word-of-mouth and repeat customers in the future. If you haven’t worked in customer service before, this is an essential skill to polish as you begin working with customers on the job. 

Impeccable time management skill

As a fence contractor, you’ll likely be managing multiple jobs and clients on any given day, which means your schedule must be airtight. Customers will become very upset if you miss deadlines or fall behind due to scheduling mishaps. If you want to make the best impression on customers, always be on time and avoid scheduling conflicts as much as possible. 

If you believe you have the skill necessary to be an asset to the FloriFence team, give us a call today to learn about available positions.
