Reasons Why You Need a Fence Contractor
When it comes to installing a fence on your property, many homeowners are tempted to do the work themselves. The concept of digging a bunch of holes, putting support posts in the ground and attaching the fence sections seems easy at first, but it can be a lot harder than it appears. You will need permits and tools as well as time and several extra sets of hands to get the job done. Sometimes it is just easier to hire a fence contractor to do the work for you.
Obtaining permits – You will need the necessary permits to install a fence. A licensed fence contractor can pull these permits for you who will save you time.
Liability insurance – Fence contractors need to have liability insurance which covers any damage to private property. You may not be worried about your own property being damaged, but that fence will be placed along your property line which means there is the potential to cause property damage to at least three adjacent properties.
Experience – A fence contractor has the necessary experience to get the job done right, and in the least amount of time possible. They have installed hundreds of fences over the years.
Tools – There are certain tools that are necessary for the installation of a fence. At the same time, there are other tools that will make the job faster and cheaper. The contractor knows what tools they need to get the job done right.
Stress – If you choose to install your own fence, not only will it take a while to complete, but there is a chance that you may get stressed out over the work that needs to be done. When you hire a service provider, they come in and a few days later the work is done. The only thing for you to get stressed out about is whether they step in your garden or not.
Contractual obligation – The contractor signs a legally binding contract to install your fence for a specific price and within a predetermined time period. They have the obligation to follow this contract which protects you, the homeowner.
Work guarantee – When you install the fence on your own, there is no guarantee that the fence will still be as beautiful and functional in the following years. However, if you hire a contractor, you will get a labor guarantee which means that if part of the fence breaks or needs any kind of repair, they will fix it for free.
