What do fencing contractors do?

Of course, fencing installers erect fencing. But what does the scope of their work involve, and what can you expect when you hire their services?

Typically, a fencing contractor will:

  • Assess/ inspect the area and provide an accurate quote for the job
  • Discuss your requirements and help you select the best fencing for your needs
  • Measure up and order the amount of materials needed
  • Supply all necessary tools and equipment for the installation of the post holes and panels
  • Level the ground where the fencing is to be installed
  • Ensure all fences and fence posts are aligned, secure, and level
  • Remove and dispose of any old fence panels that have been replaced

Questions to ask fencing contractors near you

When searching for a fencing contractor near you, take the time to do your research and ask the right questions to be sure of a job well done. Here are a few suggestions:

Do you belong to a recognised trade association?

Some fencing contractors are members of the Association of Fencing Industries (AFI). This means that the contractor must meet strict criteria in their field of work and adhere to the association’s Code of Practice.

And remember, to be a Checkatrade member, a tradesperson must pass up to 12 rigorous checks; when you use our directory, you know you’re getting the real deal.

You’ll only find trades who meet our high standards and pass our quality checks on Checkatrade.

Do you have insurance?

Hiring a professional, experienced fencing company will reduce the likelihood of suffering any problems, but insurance provides peace of mind should an accident happen.

We always recommend ensuring the tradesperson you select has adequate insurance. And we insist all our members have up-to-date public liability insurance.

Does your work come with a guarantee?

A solid fence, expertly installed should stand the test of time, but what guarantees are you left with once the work is complete?

Ask your fencing contractor what guarantees or warranties are provided on the work and the materials.

For additional peace of mind, when you contact a trade through Checkatrade, our guarantee could cover you for up to 12 months. You can claim up to £1,000. Exclusions and T&Cs apply.

Will you provide a written quote?

After visiting your property, a professional fence contractor should follow up with a written quote. An itemised quote is always best, providing clarity over the scope of the work and what both parties have agreed on.

For example, if you have it in writing that the fencing contractor has included the cost of waste disposal, there’s no ambiguity. Similarly, the quote will outline payment terms, so you know in advance what is expected of you.

Read our guide to the cost of fence panel installation for further information.

Can you help me to decide the best type of fencing for my property?

An experienced fencing contractor will talk you through the options and help you select the most suitable fencing to match your requirements.

Fencing contractors will have connections with local fencing suppliers near you, providing a wide range of choices.

Can you show me examples of your previous work?

While photos of fence installations may not be the most appealing imagery, before and after shots showing an impressive transformation are reassuring to see.

Checkatrade members will showcase these types of images on their business profile page within our directory, making it easy for you to see the standard of their work.

Here, you can also check a fence company’s credentials, qualifications, and customer reviews.

How do I find experienced fencing contractors near me?

With a few key questions in your back pocket, all that’s left to do is find the right firm for the job. Here’s how:

Use a professional directory

A trade directory offers more than just a list of business names.

At Checkatrade, for example, our tradespeople have to pass up to 12 rigorous checks to become a member, so you know they’re the real deal.

It removes the ‘guesswork’ and reassures you, the homeowner, that you’ll receive high-quality work from professional tradespeople.

Check online reviews

A quick search online will help you to check what others have to say about the fence installation services of a particular contractor.

At Checkatrade, we check all our member reviews. We only display honest and verified reviews from real-life customers.

Ask for recommendations

Have any local friends, family, or neighbours had fencing installed recently? Perhaps they could recommend the fencing company they used?

Don’t forget to cross-check any recommendations on Checkatrade!
