From schools to commercial facilities, fence installation or replacement is not something you should consider doing yourself. It is a job better left to a commercial fence contractor. Professionals possess the experience necessary to install a quality fence, safely, and in a timely fashion. You’ll have options ranging from ornamental iron and chain link to gate automation and custom designs when you choose to go with a professional fencing company.
Reasons to Hire a Fence Contractor
A commercial fence contractor has years of experience and a license to go with it. An experienced fencing company has worked on projects of all sizes for schools, sports venues, government buildings, and many other commercial and industrial properties.
They will understand the type of ground they are working with and what wires and pipes may lay beneath the surface. A professional fencing company will have all the tools and equipment to safely and properly install the new fence as well. An experienced contractor will ask questions to determine the type of fence that you would like, and that would be best for your property.
A professional contractor knows how to handle any obstacles that may arise that could impact the quality and appearance of your fence. When a contractor visits your property to give you an estimate, they will check for obstacles like trees, rocks, and anything else that may hinder the fence. They will also evaluate the grade of your property and what type of access their crew will have to the property.
The installation of a commercial fence can be incredibly complex. A substantial amount of manpower, tools, and heavy equipment is needed. Safety is an excellent reason to hire a commercial fence contractor because they will have the experience, certifications, and liability insurance that is required to protect everyone involved.
Licensed contractors install fences and gates daily, and because of this, they have an efficient system in place. This system allows a contractor and their team to get your job done on time and within budget. They will also have plenty of unique options for your property’s new fence. When a contractor comes out to your property to give you an estimate, make sure to ask the right questions, so you know what to expect from them when it comes time for the install.
What Questions to Ask
Some of the questions that you will want to ask – especially if you are getting an estimate for a school or commercial property are: will they pull permits for your job? Will they call a utility locator? What is their timeline? These are all questions that need considering when deciding on a reputable fencing company for your installation project.
The cost of pulling permits, if any, should be added to their bid. Contacting a utility locator will give not only the company but you a better idea of what utilities are running underneath your property. Asking for their timeline will provide you with a better idea of how long you will be waiting for them to get their work started. Also, ask if they will be doing the work steadily or breaking it down into sections over an extended time frame.
Another question you should ask is what fencing options they would recommend for your project. A school or water plant would most likely be advised to use ornamental iron fencing because they are harder to climb and keep the occupants of the property safer. Whereas a military base would be recommended to use a chain-link fence with barbed or razor wire installed at the top of the fencing to provide a more significant intruder deterrent.
