Should I install my own fence, or hire a professional?
August 13, 2018
If you’re planning on installing a new fence on your property, you may be debating whether you should do it yourself or a hire a professional. It’s a fair question to ask, and it’s important to consider all of the pros and cons before making your decision.
To help you decide, here are some of the advantages and disadvantages of installing your own fence versus hiring a professional fencing company to do it for you.
Installing your own fence
If you’re handy and enjoy do-it-yourself projects, you may find the task of installing your own fence satisfying. It’s a tough job, but having the right tools and experience can make it easier.
One of the main reasons why people choose to install their own fence, however, is the cost savings. Since you only have to pay for materials and not labour, the project is likely to cost less if you do the work yourself.
But it is still important to consider the other costs that come along with installing your own fence: your time and effort. When it comes to fencing, it’s also very important to make sure you do it right the first time. The proper materials, finishes and installation will save you potential repair costs in the future.
Hiring a fencing company
When you hire a professional to handle your fencing installation, you can rest easy knowing that every detail will be taken care of while your hands remain clean.
The right company will have the tools and knowledge to get the job done right, and will also be able to help you choose the right type of fencing for your property and your needs.
Another benefit of hiring a fencing company with experienced installers is that they know how to properly assess your property and deal with any ‘unexpected surprises’, such as cable lines or tree roots in the ground.
Although hiring a fencing company may cost more initially, having an improperly installed fence could end up costing you more in the long run. Having your fence professionally installed will likely save you time, effort, and future repair costs.Got a question? Ask us!
