Must-Have Traits of the Best Fence Installers
Almost any salesman you talk to will tell you their company is the best in the business – that’s a sales pitch. Make sure they can back it up with real facts, examples, and guarantees. These are the traits of a quality fencing company that separates the best fence installer from the empty sales pitch:
It’s one thing to say you’re the best company and that your teams are the most skilled – but they have to prove it, too. A truly quality fencing company will provide you a real warranty to give you 100% peace-of-mind for any new fence they build. If a company won’t stand behind their work, move on. At Smucker Fencing, we proudly offer a 3-year workmanship warranty on all of our fence installation work.
No Mess Left Behind Guarantee
This is another real guarantee you can inquire about when trying to find the best fence company. When a crew leaves your yard, it should be just as spotless as when they arrived on the site. Don’t trust a company that won’t promise this essential courtesy to you. After all, beautiful fences, go along with a beautiful yard. We are proud to offer a no-mess guarantee, meaning we leave your yard free of loose debris and material!
Has a Real Process to Prevent Settling
Oftentimes when amateur fence companies get an install wrong, it is because they don’t properly account for how the ground will settle around the new fence over time. This can lead to issues with the fence performing properly. Interview your potential fence company and ask them how they prevent settling to ensure the fence is installed securely. At Smucker Fencing, we take extra time to compact the ground directly around the posts to prevent settling – and we even use concrete depending on the ground.
Have Great Reviews
One of the best indications of what you can expect from a company or contractor is their track record. That’s why looking at reviews is so crucial when looking for the best fence installer. Check out platforms like Google and Facebook for relevant reviews from real customers. After all, you read reviews before you buy something online, make sure you read reviews just as diligently before you invest in a fence for your property.
Offers a Variety of High-Quality Fences
Since different fence types come in vastly different styles and offer various practical advantages, you want to consider all your options. That’s why the best fence companies offer a wide range of different materials and designs. Keep reading to see our huge selection of top-of-the-line fence options!
Check out Our Lines of Luxury Fences
The best fence for you will provide the level of backyard privacy you need – as well as the style that enhances your outdoor décor. Plus, you’ll also want to keep the price and maintenance requirements in mind when making your choice. To provide our customers with the best options for them, we offer all the top-of-the-line options:
Vinyl – Vinyl fences are a standout choice as they provide tons of elegant options for both open and fully private fences with a great aesthetic. A truly classic look, vinyl fences are a low-maintenance option, only needing to be washed with soap and water to look their best and last for decades.
Aluminum – Another ultra-low-maintenance fence, aluminum will never require re-painting or re-staining and can easily last 50+ years. While the sleek modern look of aluminum isn’t ideal for privacy, it provides a distinctly upscale look to your home.
Wood – We offer wood fencing for homeowners who want a classic and rustic look for their property. Wood fences come in a variety of models, ranging from ranch-style fences to full privacy options. Compared to vinyl and aluminum models, wooden fences will require semi-regular maintenance to prevent rot and mold.
