10 Questions to Ask Fencing Contractors


  1. Make sure to inform the fence company about any potential hindrances, especially easements. They should ask you first, if they don't you need to make then aware.

  2. Will the company call a utility locator to confirm location of potential water, power, sewer and gas lines? They need to be proactive to avoid costly accidents.

  3. If your lot is sloped, how will the fence installer handle grading? Stepped fence design is a common solution, however if you have pets this technique leaves gaps that could be a problem. A contoured fence solution is more secure.

  4. What is the anticipated final height of the fence? Height may vary based on grade, for statutory reasons you typically don't want to go over 6'.

  5. Are gates and any necessary hardware included in the quoted cost?

  6. What kind of warranty is offered by the fence company? Ideally, you want labor covered in addition to materials.

  7. What is an accurate schedule? Fencing companies are typically busiest in spring and summer, make sure their schedule fits yours.

  8. Will the company come back and adjust the gates for your fence?

  9. If old fencing is being removed, is the fencing contractor responsible for clean up and hauling away rubbish? Make certain you're not on the hook for disposal.

  10. Is the fencing company and its workers fully insured, licensed and bonded? Make sure an accident can't turn into a liability disaster for you.
