If you’re considering building a new fence on your property, it’s important to ask prospective contractors the right questions. We’ve come up with a list of questions to ask your soon-to-be fence company to make sure they’re a perfect fit for your needs.
1. Can you tell me about the quality of your fence materials?
Strong and durable fences are built with high quality materials. Ask your fence company what brands or manufacturers materials they are using and if there are any warranties on materials.
2. Do you use aluminum stiffeners to prevent sagging?
An stiffener is a strong, lightweight aluminum insert that is used to reinforce fence posts or railings. In order to maintain the strength of your privacy or yard fence and prevent sagging, we always install aluminum stiffeners to strengthen the bottom rail of fences we build.
3. Will you use concrete to set fence posts?
Concrete should be used for all vinyl, aluminum and chain link fence installations. The taller the fence, the deeper the posts need to be set. It’s important that posts are set in concrete in order to maintain the strength and structure over time.
4. How long have you been in the fence business?
A fence company that has been in business for a long time will have more experienced workers and knowledge of materials and techniques. Dutch Way has been proudly serving customers in the Valley since 1995.
5. Are you properly licensed and insured?
Dealing with a licensed and insured fence company protects you from shoddy work. It also ensures that you have proper legal resources in the event of any disputes or injuries to workers on your property.
