Common Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing A Fence
In order to allow you to succeed from the start of your fence project, we have prepared a summary of the common mistakes to avoid when preparing and choosing a new fence.
CHECK THE BUSINESS
For your protection and to ensure that the company that will take care of your fence project is legally constituted, first validate its constitution or registration and by clicking on the Find a company in the register button . This quick and simple search can save you many unpleasant surprises later.
It is normal for your fence installer to require an initial deposit before work begins to determine your commitment. The deposit amount should be between 10% and 20% of the total invoice amount.
Paying the full invoice at the end of the work will only maintain the commitment of your fence installer first, and will also allow you to carry out a quality check of the materials and work.
COMPARE APPLES TO APPLES!
Another common mistake that we are often told about is focusing only on the final price and getting carried away when we are presented with an estimate with a total cost that is lower than the average fence installer. Before concluding that you are making a good purchase, ask for the BRAND and MODEL of fence presented in your estimate and ask for references of achievements similar to your project. A lower price than the competition often hides a lower quality both in terms of installation and the quality of materials.
CHECK THE DEPTH AND DISTANCE BETWEEN EACH POST.
Do this check during the work to ensure that the depth of the digging of the fence posts is at least approximately 1 meter (4 feet) for clay-sandy soils, and that the distance between each post is not more approximately 2 meters (7 feet). Some fence installers may reduce the digging depth and increase the distance between each post to save time and money. In the medium and long term, the fence will be less resistant to bad weather and will be more prone to warping during freezing and thawing.
