Rockwood Fence Company

Rockwood Fence CompanyIf you are a Rockwood resident, are looking to get a new fence installed in the near future, and are on the hunt to gather information together about how to best accomplish this goal, then you’ve come to the right place. It’s true that one Rockwood fence company is different from the next and not all are created equal, so doing your homework upfront is a smart decision to make.

Feel free to check out various areas of our site where you’ll find plenty of information, but while you are on this page let me tell you a few things that you may want to consider before you choose one particular Rockwood fence company over another.

1) Location – the current economy has caused many Rockwood fence companies fall upon hard times. It’s no secret that many homeowners in the southeast Michigan area (including Rockwood) have been collectively holding off on making purchases of anything and everything that costs more than a cell phone. This applies double to any purchase revolving around real estate. Many residents harbor doubts as to whether or not they’ll be keeping their home for an extended period of time and this mindset causes them to forgo investing any money in their home as they feel they may not get any return on their investment.

This is, of course, a bad decision that can lead to disastrous safety consequences for a child or a pet, but let’s ignore the fact for the moment. The bottom line is that people are not installing as many fences as they used to which in turn has led the average fence company owner from all across the area to try and expand into other areas of business that they had previously avoided in an effort the find a few more customers each month to meet their quota. This means that a local Rockwood fence company may be attempting to go as far out as Ypsilanti in order to find business but it also entails that a Ypsilanti fence company may be trying to find work in Rockwood.

It’s a good idea to give some thought to this unusual situation because you don’t want to be the victim when a company based in another county doesn’t come by to install your fence for weeks and weeks after a price for the work has been agreed upon and a check for the deposit has already been cut.

For this reason it’s best to do business with a Rockwood fence company that works in and around your community each and every day. This one simple, often overlooked, measure will go a long way to help insure your job is completed on time.

2) Rockwood Building Code Standards – obviously, we hope that you’ll choose Veterans Fence Company to install your next fencing system, however if you decided that another company is better suited, make sure that they know what they are doing where local Rockwood regulations are concerned.

Even a brand-new company who has never done so much as dig a post hole can run ads on TV or in the paper, but that’s not a guarantee that they know the ins-and-outs of dealing with the people at the code enforcement desk like a Rockwood fence company would.

3) Properly Bonded and Insured – you’ll want to make sure that you check to insure that the Rockwood fence company you choose to go with in order to install your new fence is properly bonded and insured. If a member of an installation crew injures himself while on your property, his company’s coverage should help take care of his lost time, wages, and medical expenses. If this type of coverage was never procured or was allowed to lapse then the worker might just feel that it makes sense to pursue legal action again you, the homeowner, to get the money he feels he’s entitled to.

Gibraltar Fence Company

Gibraltar Fence Company

Beautiful Decorative Fence in Gibraltar

Most people will only have a new fence installed on a home they live in one or two times in their lives. This means that they have very little contact with the industry and know even less about how the average Gibraltar fence company does business. You might think that things are rather straight-forward and regulated like any other home contracting field such as electrical repair or HVAC installation. Unfortunately, if that’s the idea you have about the fencing industry, you’re very much wrong.

While many municipalities have some permit requirements for installing a fence on either personal or commercial property, many do not. This lack of regulation means that there is very little accountability in between various Gibraltar fence companies who work in the local area. Furthermore, while installing fence as a business is not something that is easy to do for the long run, it’s something that is easy to get into. You could send in some sole proprietorship paperwork today via FedEx, rent a post hole digger, get a line of credit at a local commercial building materials supplier and be in business tomorrow. This makes the fence installation business the wild-west of the small contracting industries.

So how can you know that the Gibraltar fence company that you’re working with provides quality product, great customer service, and proper follow-up? Here’s a few things to keep in mind that will go a long way in helping you achieve that goal:

1) Check References – any company that has been in business for more than a handful of years should be able to supply references (if not full-blow testimonials) from happy customers who are willing to share their experience with you. Either ask for two or three previous customers right-off-the-bat when you call and ask for someone to come out and give you a quote so you can call the references up before the rep shows up at your front door, or ask that he bring them along when he stops by. If you choose the later, make sure you don’t make any commitment to buying a fence the same-day as you need to take some time to CALL the references and ask about how their experience with that particular Gibraltar fence company went when they had their fence put in. For this reason, it’s usually best to get the references up-front so if you like the price and style that you are shown, you’ll already know if the company follows through after the deposit is made and you can choose to move ahead with your project instead of waiting a few days.

2) Look for Professional Behavior – I know from experience that there is a lot of difference in how the team members of one Gibraltar fence company conduct themselves when compared to another. The sales representative is the first contact and most companies who know what they are doing tell their people that the first impression is the only impression. If a particular sales rep seems lazy, disinterested, and has an unpleasant demeanor or appearance, you can be assured that the installation crew will be worse. Try to stick with a company who sends their sales people out in business casual attire and show an attention to their appearance and you’ll likely get the same type of people digging holes in your ground and interacting with your neighbors.

It may seem like a short list, but keeping an eye out like a hawk for these two factors will serve you well in choosing the right Gibraltar fence company. At this point I’d like to say that our company, Veterans Fence, has served this area for over 40 years. My father started the company and has taught me from the time I was a boy that the way you treat people will determine whether you are successful in this business or not. Pricing on fencing between one company or another doesn’t vary much because the costs of materials are pretty much fixed, but the way you treat people goes a long way in determining whether or not they recommend you to family and friends. I always keep this in mind and strive for excellence in every fence project my team takes on. Please give me a call at 313-381-8530 and give me a chance to show you how a fence company should do business. I assure you that you won’t be disappointed.

"Veterans fence solved all my safety issues. I live on a busy street and my kids would always find a way near the street. I called Veterans Fence Company so that I could get a proper fence installed. They had my job completed in a few days. With other Plymouth homes that end up gettting new fencing installed, it seems like it can take forever. The team at Veterans was fast, professional and economical. Now I can let my kids play in our backyard and not have to worry." Brian Kurtz
