green bullet  How do I select a good, reputable, qualified fence company?

We recommend you ask several questions:

    green dot Ask your local Better Business Bureau if the company has a complaint history.
    green dot Ask the company for a list of customers, residential and commercial, and contact some of them. Make sure you contact some with recent work done and some with work done not so recently. Take the time to inspect some of this work.
    green dot Ask for bank and supplier references, including individuals to contact. Follow through with reference checks.
    green dot Ask for copies of proof of the company's liability insurance. This will protect you from liability while the company's installers are on your property.

green bullet  What do I need to know before having the fence installed?

You need to assess:

    green dot The purpose of the fence (privacy, pet or pool enclosure, property, etc.).
    green dot Where the fence will be located, exactly.
    green dot What type of fence you want (materials, height, style, features and accessories).
    green dot When you plan to have the work completed. (For example, are there landscaping, remodeling, or surveying issues which need to be completed before the fence installation?)

When a fence is well planned, properly designed, carefully crafted, and expertly installed, it leaves the impression that it belongs. A good fence will last a long time, and you need to make a decision that you will be able to live with.
