Choosing The Right Fence For Your Property

Choosing the right fencing for your yard can be a very tough decision. There are a lot of variables you need to consider before picking. Lucky for you, we have combed through all the research and talked to twelve different fence companies (including Halls Fence Company of NJ) to make sure you know exactly what you’re getting into when you choose.

First thing is first, you want to find a fence that fits your building. Are you residential or commercial? If you’re residential, you will want to stick with a fence that offers safety, privacy, and enhances the overall value of your home. If you are a business or commercial property, you will probably be more concerned with privacy and safety (especially construction sites).

The next step is to think about your budget. What can you afford? This will give you an idea of what type of fence you should go with and how much of the fence you can buy. If you don’t have much money to spend, try going with a wood or split rail fence. They can sometimes be the cheapest. If you want to go all out, purchase a vinyl fence. Vinyl fencing is known for being very durable. Even in the harshest of weather it stands up. This is because it is made of a hardened plastic called “PVC”.

Lastly, you will want to analyze your property and think about where the fence will go. Is it a fence that will border your entire land or just keep Sparky the dog from running away? This will give you an idea of the volume of fence to purchase.

No matter what type of fence you decide to go with, we recommend Halls Fence installation services for their supreme customer service, high quality products, and overall knowledge of the business. William Halls, the owner is a great friend of mine and has owned and operated Halls Fence for nearly twelve years now.

How To Choose The Right Fence Company

Use these simple steps to find the best fence companies in NJ…

  1. You always get what you pay for. Choose your fence company very carefully – once you have the finished product you’re stuck with it for good. Sure, quality fence installation might cost a little more than you bargained
  2. Make sure the person installing it has the right experience! You want the people doing the work to have the skill needed to install a fence.
  3. Be sure the company has a good reputation, Find out where the companies showroom is too. How well your fence turns out is a mirror of how well the business is run.
  4. What kind of warranties are available? You will not have any issues when dealing with high quality, properly installed products.
  5. Who’s looking out for you? Most utility lines and irrigation lines run along your property lines.  You want a professional who can handle the many challenges, as well as someone who is looking out for your lawn, flowers, shrubs and trees.  Just being insured isn’t enough— you need insurance from the company.
  6. Know the importance of 100% ready mix concrete for your fence post footings (from the concrete truck).  Neglecting to use ample, quality concrete will compromise the integrity of the fence.  Any fixed structure needs a secure foundation.  “Bag-crete” will not hold up well and often is used only at the bottom or at the top of the fence post hole.
  7. Be sure the company does what they say they’re going to do, when they say they’re going to do it. Hire a company with a great work ethic. This should be fun and exciting!
  8. Consider the importance of seeing and feeling the actual product and how it looks when it is installed.
  9. Knowledge is king, always hire someone who is an expert.  You are responsible for knowing these if the fence business doesn’t.  It can cost you a lot if you get fined or (God forbid) have to fix the problem fence…
