Deciding how to choose a fence installation professional to build your new fence can be daunting. There are a lot of different factors to take into consideration. We’d like to share a few things that can help you choose to buy from NPR.
Hire Only Licensed Professionals
Always make sure that any contractor you hire to do work on your property is licensed, bonded and insured. This protects you against faulty workmanship and any injuries that happen to workers on your property. Any fencing contractor that is charging a price that is significantly less than other companies is possibly not carrying the proper bond and insurance amounts. Here is a link to the Washington State Labor and Industries contractor verification site.
A true fence installation professional will use quality materials so that your fence will last a long time. NPR uses 4 1/8 x 4 1/8 oversized posts. A standard 4 x 4 post is actually only 3 ½ x 3 ½. Using the smaller posts can make a significant difference in the integrity of your fence over time. We also use hot dipped galvanized nails. This ensures that the nails won’t rust and drip down the front of your fence.
A Fence Installation Professional Should Give You a Warranty
Make sure that your new fence comes with a warranty. NPR offers a 5-year warranty on our labor, 1 year for wood materials, 20 years for chain link materials, and a Lifetime warranty on PVC materials. We have been in the local fence installation industry for over 25 years, and a majority of our business comes from repeat customers and referrals. It feels good to have a customer call to say that we installed their cedar fence 20 years ago and it’s time for a new one and they want us to install that one as well.
Each type and style of fence has it’s own unique challenges and installation techniques. You want to make sure that you are choosing a contractor that has experience in the type of fence you want. We are experts in all material types and construction methods, including: wood; vinyl/PVC; composite/Trex/Bufftech/Simtek/etc; chain link; ornamental iron; picket; dog kennels; NGPA; agricultural/horse/ranch/etc; and more.
