Renton Fence Maintenance

You’ve decided on your fence project, whether new contsruction or repairing your old fence. 

Carefully choosing the right fence contractor is important to the success of your project, while an unqualified contractor can turn your plans into a nightmare. Here are some tips for selecting the right contractor for the job:

Ask for references of recently completed projects; check each out.

The Contract

After you have selected a  contractor, make sure that all detailed information is included in the contract, such as complete names, addresses, and phone numbers of both parties, as well as the physical address of the project. Be sure that project start and finish dates are included, and that a payment plan is described in detail. It is normal for a contractor to ask for 10-33% in advance, with additional funds paid as work progresses.

How to Save on the Total Bill

If your project does not have to be completed on a priority basis, you may want to consider offering it to a contractor as a fill in job. Most contractors will take such projects at a reduced price, insuring they have other work in the event of adverse weather or materials delivery mix-ups at another project.

Finding the Right Contractor

There are at least three sources for finding a qualified building contractor in your area: word-of-mouth references from people that have recently had a similar project done, local licensing authorities who provide a list of contractors with appropriate building contractor license, and Internet web sites that make referrals.

By following these simple steps, you can avoid a potential nightmare, and insure your project is a pleasant experience for all parties involved.
