It will be summer in a few weeks here on the east coast, which means that the average homeowner is already well into making and tackling their home DIY lists. Whether it is yard work or landscaping, or anything else on the exterior of their home, there are plenty of different things that the average homeowner can tackle with great satisfaction and success. Conversely, there are also a few jobs around the house that are best left to the professionals. A new fence installation is one of those jobs.
Given not only the size and scale of the project but its proximity to your neighbor’s lines of property, it is generally best to seek out the help from experts and experience of a professional fence installer to ensure that everything goes the way that it is supposed to. However, before you hire the fence installer, there are a few questions you should ask to ensure which installer is right for the job. Read on to learn more!
Do You Have Any References?
Before you decide to roll with a contractor to do any work at all around your house, you should always ask them for a list of extensive references that you can call on to inquire about the contractor’s performance and practices. Also, make sure you check the review website for customer reviews or testimonials. Any trustworthy fence installer will offer you references or testimonials for your own confidence.
Will Your Project Be Completed?
Of course, before anything of such importance like expenses, it is wise to have a good idea of when it is projected to finish. Ask your fence installer not only for when the projected end date will be for the project but for specific points for progress. In other terms, when will the posts all be up? When will the panels all be assembled and set up in place? When is it going to be painted and stained? These are all great things to ask before in order to keep up with your contractor’s progress.
How Much Will It Cost?
By far, one of the most key aspects of the project is the price of it all. Even though they might have already given you an estimate, it is crucial that you get an itemized and detailed cost sheet to prevent a negative surprise upon the completion of your project. Make sure that you complete a line-by-line comparison of your estimate to the cost at the end of your project to check for any pesky discrepancies.
