I believe it was Robert Frost who said, “Good fences make good neighbors.” I’m pretty sure I agree with this… I mean I love my neighbors but then again, I have always had a fenced-in backyard. A fence is a small thing on your property that can make all of the difference. It allows for privacy, while also being aesthetically pleasing.
If you have been thinking about putting up a fence but feel overwhelmed with the process of finding a fence contractor to do the job, check out our partner of the month: Wood & Wire Fence Company. I asked them for advice on important factors to consider when choosing a fencing company. The experts at Wood & Wire recommended that before having anyone do any type of fence work on your property, you should ask them these questions.
(They also graciously answered them for us.)
- What is their business address and do they have a display area you can visit?
Wood & Wire Fence Co, Inc. is located at 125 Higginson Avenue, Lincoln Rhode Island and they have an enormous display area with samples of the fences they offer for installation.
- How long have they been in business?
Over 26 years.
- Are they insured? Do they have a license? Do they have copies of these forms they can show you?
Yes, Wood & Wire is fully licensed and insured and can provide copies of this upon request.
- Do they hire subcontractors or are the people doing the installation their employees?
Wood & Wire Fence Co. feels that the best way to control the quality of their work is to maintain a staff of well trained employees who know the proper way to install a fence. They do not believe in subcontracting the work out.
- What type of warranties do they offer?
All of their fences come with a minimum of a 3 year warranty on parts and labor. However, some of their specific fence distributors offer extended warranties beyond that.
- Are they open in the winter in case you have a problem?
Yes!. Wood & Wire feels that it is important to be open in the winter, especially in New England where mother nature wreaks havoc on everything, including fences.
- Do they offer financing?
0% interest for 12 months.
