You’ve decided to either install a new fence or replace an existing fence in your Denver yard. Now what? Do you do it yourself or hire and experienced fencing contractor? Although you may believe it will cost more to hire a fencing contractor instead of embarking on a DIY fence project, you have to consider costs that only of the cold hard cash variety.
Benefits of Hiring an Experienced Fencing Contractor for Your New Fence
Your city, county or township may require special permits and your HOA may require approval before a fence is constructed on your property. Not knowing these rules before the fence goes in can result in fines once the fence is completed. A fencing contractor will be familiar with the approval and permit process and can take care of it for you.
Saves you money on expensive, specialized equipment.
Fence construction, especially in rocky and hilly areas, can require special equipment like leveling and survey tools and excavation equipment for drilling the post holes. To speed up the process of installing a fence, pneumatic nailers are generally used too. These “guns” can be pricey and will add considerable cost to your DIY fence project. Without a nailer, the fence will take you considerably longer (and with more muscle power) to construct. And, you may never use this equipment again. A fencing contractor has all these tools and knows how to use them!
With so many fencing options, how do you choose?
Wood or vinyl? Split rail or privacy? Cedar or Redwood? These are some of the decisions that have to be made before your start your fence project. An expereicne, knowledgeable fencing contractor can help you decide the type, style and materials used for your fence. The fencing contractor can also educate you on the various stains and paints available to help your fence look beautiful and last longer.
Do you even have the time?
Fences can take a long time to install. If you only have time on the weekends, then it could weeks before the fence is up. And, if you are replacing a fence and have dogs you need to keep fenced in, having a your fence incomplete for weeks will mean lots of dog walking! A fencing contractor can get your fence completed during the week while you are work; usually in a few days.
