5 Mistakes To Avoid When Choosing a Fence Company

Choosing the right fence company doesn’t have to be a hard decision. With the right preparation and a little bit of research you will be on your way to finding a fencing company that understands your needs. Finding the right company takes a bit of time and you don’t want to make a costly mistake like some people do.

Below are the top five mistakes to avoid when choosing a fence company…

  1. Hiring a one-man company.

If you have a small budget, it might be tempting to hire the friend or family member who says they can install your fence. This is a big mistake. Often time’s people underestimate how much goes into a fence installation project… One has to analyze the landscape, make postholes, determine where to put the slats, and more. Needless to say, this is a job for a team and not one person.

  1. Choosing a company based on price.

Many companies, especially in New Jersey, have drastically low prices. This is a ploy. Once they get you to sign a contract, they either take forever to finish the job or give you much less than what you thought you were getting. A respectable fence company, such as Fence Supply Source, prices their services honestly so that you get the best service and highest quality fence materials for your project.

  1. Choosing a fence from a photo.

If you go to the fence company and they try to sell you on only a photo, this can have drastic consequences. First, an image, in certain light, can look much different than what it is intended to look like. Second, when you see an image of a fence, you aren’t getting the whole experience. I had a neighbor who ordered a wood fence just looking at a picture and when it was installed, they realized it was fake wood (plastic).

  1. Not looking at reviews.

When choosing a fence company, always go with the one that has the most reviews (ones that are most helpful). Often you will see companies who have very opposite reviews (very positive and very negative). This is for a few reasons. First, some competitors like to post negative reviews to bring down their competition. Second, the happiest customers leave the brightest reviews.

  1. Hiring a company that doesn’t specialize in fences.

Many companies, especially contractors, like to say they are fencing experts when they really aren’t. In fact I have even had some plumbers tell me they are expert fence installers too. Don’t go with a company that only installs or repairs fences sometimes, go with a professional that knows exactly what they are doing.


With a bit of homework and really reviewing companies, you will find one that is perfect for you and your next fence project.
