So it’s time to fix up the dilapidated old fence in your otherwise spacious and beautiful backyard. Where do you go from here? You want the job done correctly by professionals in a timely manner without breaking the bank, but how do you go about doing so? Here are four steps to follow when choosing a company to build your fence:
Pick Fence Specialists
The first step is finding a list of companies that specialize in fence installation in Ottawa. You don’t want to hire a general contractor or a landscaping company to install your fence when there are experts out there who do nothing but fence. A fence installation company in Ottawa can offer you quality products, professional service and a warranty on their work. Sit back and enjoy the peace of mind you get when you know that you are receiving a quality installation by experts who are passionate and knowledgeable about fencing.
Are they certified?
Now that you have a list of fence installers, the next step is to check if they are certified. It’s an important measure for quality control and customer protection. If there is an unfortunate accident on your property, you will be sure that no legal action against you. When doing your research, check for a WSIB (Workplace Safety and Insurance Board) clearance certificate on the company’s website.
Read online reviews
It’s impossible to get away with shoddy work these days because of online reviews. If you check HomeStars, Google Reviews and Client Testimonials for the companies on your list, you will find everything you need to know. If the company has many bad reviews, stay away. If they have reviews saying how happy they were with the installation and service, that’s a great sign. You’ll gain a window into the company’s process, manner, customer service, and pricing.
Check their work
Any credible fence company should have an online portfolio of their past work, and we aren’t talking about generic stock photos. Take some time to look at these pictures to get a sense of the quality and scope of the companies work. It’s important to view photos that document the work process as well. You can use this opportunity to take a look at the different fence options available to you as well and visualize the design options.
