When planning a fence project, many people wonder whether it is worth it to have their fence professionally installed or to try their hand at DIYing it. We always recommend getting your fence installed professionally in order to get the most out of your new fence. Here’s why.
The biggest benefit of hiring professionals to install is that we make sure the posts are level and straight, we do not follow the terrain as that can cause a fence to look messy and uneven. We typically ensure that the panels have even spacing and not a bunch of 8-foot sections followed by an inconsistent 2-foot section at the end.
Professionals always make sure that we have all of the materials to complete the job because we know what we need to accomplish the task. Often with a DIY install, people have no idea what they need and when they get the materials realize they are missing pieces or they make a mistake and need to replace a part, so the cost in the end after getting all of the materials and tools required ends up being more than if they had just hired a professional.
Professionals know how to complete our projects in a timely fashion whereas DIY’ers sometimes have an ongoing fencing project for sometimes years. At OK Vinyl, our fence installations take just one or two days for smaller projects, and one to two weeks for larger projects.
Any good installer will include a warranty on their fence installation. This gives you peace of mind that you will not get on a DIY job. OK Vinyl installations all include a one-year warranty.
