Why professional fencing installers are worth the investment

adminFencing blog

Installing a fence requires knowledge, skill, care and attention to detail along with a raft of tools for it to be installed correctly and for the fence to last. Poorly installed fencing can result in boundaries that aren’t secure, increased repair costs and chance of damage especially in adverse weather where a poorly installed fence can fail quickly.

When considering a new garden fence for your property you might be tempted to try and save money by opting for DIY approach, or choosing a general handyman rather than a specialist garden fencing installer.

Here are some important considerations before you decide the right route for you when making an investment in the boundary of your property.

Professional installers understand boundary and planning requirements

A professional installer knows about planning requirements and boundary rules, this can avert any issues with neighbours or local authorities. Missing these and installing a fence which needs to later be adjusted can be an expensive and time consuming mistake. For advice on boundary disputes we recommend a blog by Jacksons fencing researching the common garden boundary permissions and laws when installing fencing, gates or garden decking but one benefit highlighed in the blog is a professional fence installer will know the laws and best practice.

Professional fence installers can better advise what’s right for your site and save you money in the long run

Fence installation involves thorough preparation, safety precautions and detailed aftercare. A full assessment of the site is vital, taking into consideration factors like terrain and local weather patterns because often poorly installed fencing will result in wind damaged fencing that needs replacing. The selection of appropriate fencing is also essential: poor-quality fencing often results in unexpected damage and a shortened lifespan of the product. So while the initial cost might be lower on cheaper quality fence and DIY installation, the longer term a professionally installed alternative will often work out as better value. Especially if you use an installer who can work with products that carry a guarantee.

Easier and less stressful

Hiring a trained, certified fencing professional with years of experience will make your life much simpler. They can help you choose the best fence for your requirements, make all the necessary measurements, use professional tools and complete the job quickly efficiently and neatly, minimising the disruption to your garden. That does of course rely on securing the services of an expert in the first place as, unfortunately, there are many rogue traders out there.
