Houston, TX (PRWEB) May 19, 2013
Having a fence installed is an excellent investment. It increases property value, marks boundaries, and provides privacy. Protecting children and keeping pets contained and out of harm's way, a fence is one of the most important additions that could be made to any yard. However, choosing the right company for the installation can be overwhelming. There are so many fence companies to choose from that they all start to run together, but Texas Fence Co. has put out a guide for buyers to make the decision easier.
Most people have no idea what they are looking for in a fence company. While it’s important to choose a fencing company that can install the fence style the buyer is interested in, there are other factors to consider. Texas Fence Co. recommends looking for a company that has been in business for several years and carries insurance for both liability and workers’ compensation. The Houston fence company also suggests getting references and looking at the workmanship to ensure that the customer will be pleased with the finished product.
The Fine Details
It is important to look at the little details when a company comes out to give an estimate. Texas Fence Co. recommends only using companies that take careful measurements and will discuss the options the customer wants before calculating the job cost estimate. The company should provide a written estimate and detailed information regarding the job.
Financing and Warranty
Fences can be expensive, but there are ways to make them more affordable. Some companies offer financing or attractive payment terms, and it’s important to learn about those options ahead of time. Replacing a fence is also expensive, but that cost can be avoided by choosing an experienced company that offers a warranty on their work.
Important Questions for References
As a consumer, many potential customers know how important it is to get references. However, they may not know which questions to ask. Texas Fence Co.'s buyers' guide provides a thorough list of questions to ensure that fence buyers hire the right company and are pleased with the work.
Important Questions for Contractors
In addition to looking at the fencing options and choosing a company that will install an attractive fence, customers also need to interview the contractor and ask questions. Texas Fence wants all prospective buyers to know that getting the answers to these questions before they sign a contract will help them find the right fencing company. Will they call the company and have utility lines marked? Reputable companies always call before they dig. What type of nails will be used? Customers should look for a company that uses galvanized ring-shanked nails that will not rust. Screws are also a good choice, but there is more labor involved with screws, which drives the price up. These questions and more are outlined in the buyers' guide that Texas Fence Co. offers.
