Important Questions To Ask Before Hiring A Fencing Contractor

Have you recently bought a new home? Do you think that it could benefit from the installation of a new wood fence? If you're not a fan of manual labor, you're probably thinking about hiring a local fencing contractor (such as one from All Counties Fence and Supply) to do the work. Here are some questions that you should consider asking before hiring one:

What type of wood will you be using for my fence? Unless you specifically ask for a cedar fence, you probably don't give much thought to what type of wood goes into a fence. But if termites are very active in your area, you will want to ensure that the fencing contractor you choose will use wood that has been treated to repel termites. Although a true professional will use quality wood, you may still encounter someone who cuts corners by using cheaper untreated wood. 

What type of nails will you use? You may be under the impression that all nails are more or less the same, but this isn't true. Nails come in many different sizes, shapes and materials. If you decide that you want a beautiful cedar fence, your fencing contractor should be using stainless steel or aluminum nails and not potentially less expensive galvanized nails. If galvanized nails are used with cedar, there are acids in the wood that will cause those nails to corrode and stain your fence. 

What sort of deposit do you require? A fencing contractor will usually need some sort of deposit to begin work. The exact type of deposit will vary from contractor to contractor. Some contractors may want half of the money up front before they begin work, while others may only demand a third of it. Make sure you also understand whether the contractor will want more of the money during the course of the contract or if the remainder will be due only after all work is completed. 

How is waste removal and cleanup handled? During the course of installing a fence, your fencing contractor will have materials that are left over or that were otherwise unsuitable for use. Some contractors will include hauling away any waste and debris as part of your agreed-upon price. Other contractors will expect you to handle that aspect of the project or they may charge you an additional fee to get rid of any trash that is generated. Knowing what will happen to the garbage afterwards will allow you to make any necessary plans for disposal.
