In this day and age, price weighs heavily on your decision making process. The key is to ask yourself -What am I giving up if I go with the lowest price? Often times the answer is, more than you think. In this economy many companies have sharpened their pencils to be as competitive as possible. Many of these companies have taken a hit to profit margins to keep the new business coming in. We all have to compete with the many new “Pick-up Truck Warriors” that have arisen from the many job losses and cutbacks in our area. Without the requirement of licensing for Fence Contractors in New York, basically anyone can call themselves a ”Fence Contractor” with no recourse for you.
As we all have heard, you get what you pay for. Many of these “Companies” have no Workers Comp or liability insurance policies and many do not collect and file taxes on the material you purchase from them. This leaves you holding all the liability when an injury or audit occurs. However, you can get a fair deal with the security in knowing the company will be there to address any concerns that may come up. You can also find a company that will be willing to perform any warranty work you may need down the road. All you have to do is a small bit of research.
We encourage you to visit these sites when researching your next fence company:
