Our Katy fence company know that many customers struggle to choose who should build their wooden fence, Here is how to narrow down your search and find the best local fencing contractor.

If I were to do a google search for “fence company near me” I would pull up 505,000,000 results in less than one minute that claim to be the best choice for my residential or commercial projects but without research, how do I know? The more information I learn before the fencing contractor arrives the better my chance at having the wooden fence I need. As you try to narrow down your search for Katy fence companies here are a few things you want to take into consideration.

1. How long has the fence company been in business?

Its important to know if the fence company you choose for your Katy fence has been in business long enough, they have made their fair share of mistakes- wait what? Mistakes? Let me ask you this have you ever gone to work and made an error in judgement? Of course, especially when starting out but the longer you have been preforming your role the easier everything flows together and the fewer errors you make. While everyone has a bad day from time to time if the fence contractor is new to the industry you may want to hire someone who has been in business awhile. We had a customer contact us recently that had been offered a ONE YEAR WARRANTY- The wooden fence had issue, so they called to have the fence contractor come out only to discover the Katy fence company had closed down and their warranty was useless. This is an extreme case but let’s face the facts most businesses close down in 18 months according to Bloomberg and whomever you hire for your home repairs is not exempt. Choose someone wo is not here today and gone tomorrow, has years of industry experience and knows how to build a wooden fence that will last and if there are issues your warranty is intact.

2. Choose a Katy fence company that doesn’t cut corners.

Wooden fences have more issues than any other fence in our area because wood is a natural resource that is impacted by our environment. They are susceptible to splintering, warping, rot, and mold if the fence company tries to cut corners by offering lumber that is not quality and hand selected you can run into issues. The best way to know is to ask during the estimate “What type of Cedar do you use, and do you hand select the materials?” In over 100 calls we receive each week, we never are asked. If the fence contractor is using anything les than a No. 2 its not quality. Also make sure they use screws do not nail, a three-brace system and provide options such as rot board. If you want a quality wooden fence that can last in our area you need to ask the right questions. For a list of questions here is a blog I wrote a few weeks ago that will drill into the details.

# 3 Customer Testimonials

Read their testimonials not only on their website but on Google. What does past customers have to say about the quality of their work, their experience with the fence contractor, and the communication they have throughout the project with the fence company they selected. It’s also important when you schedule your wooden fence that you have a projected start and end date. Find out what their policy is if you are unhappy with the fence? The only way to secure your investment is to ask the right questions.

# 4 Friendly Customer Service

Your Katy fence company should go over and above to ensure you have a top-notch experience; Fence contractors who have been at this awhile understand that without your happiness, word of mouth referrals do not happen and without customers no business can succeed. They should take the time to listen, answer your questions, and make you feel comfortable. They should remain accessible throughout your project. If they can’t do these simple things, then seek another Katy fence company who will.
