Important Questions to Ask Your Gate Company
Fencing and gate installation can really improve the value and appearance of your home. Working with a professional gate company is the best way to ensure you get a quality installation that you can rely on for years to come. According to IBIS World, there are over 300,000 fence and gate construction companies in the U.S. alone, but you want to make sure you get the right one for your property. Here are a few questions you should ask a gate company before hiring them.
What Styles and Materials Do You Provide?
You should be aware that not every gate company will be experienced in creating every kind of fence and gate. Some companies may specialize in some types of materials and styles. If you have a very specific type of fence and gate in mind, then you’ll need to make sure that the company can provide that type for you.
There are many types of materials you can use for fencing and gates. Your choice will depend on what your goals are for the installation and how much maintenance you’re willing to do in the future as some materials require more maintenance than others.
Do You Have References?
A reputable and experienced gate company should have plenty of references to pass along to you. If they don’t have references or if they seem hesitant to provide these, then you may need to keep looking for a different company. If they do provide references, then be sure to contact them so that you can ask further questions on how the company operates and if the past customer was happy with the service they received.
Do You Provide Warranties?
It’s great if a company can provide you with some kind of warranty for the service and products they are providing to you. If they don’t provide one, then you should still ask what they do provide if you are unhappy with the work. There should be some type of policy in place for unsatisfactory work. Also, make sure you get this in writing as well.
Do You Offer Free Estimates?
Most gate companies will provide you with a free estimate. Doing so ensures you get to know how much the service you’re interested in is. It can help you to budget your project better.
