A Beginner’s Guide for First-Time Fence Buyers

The experts at Fence Consultants of West Michigan have more than 200 years of combined experience in the industry, so they know how daunting it can be for homeowners who are fence installation beginners.

The first step is determining the best fencing material for you and your needs. Vinyl fencing, an aluminum fence, a wood fence, or a wire fence are all great options, but it’s important to consider which features are most advantageous to you. Wood fence panels, for example, have a distinct appearance and can be custom created; vinyl fencing, on the other hand, requires much less maintenance and will likely maintain its original look years longer than wood. Think about the primary purposes of your fencing to establish what would be best for your home. Is it primarily for aesthetics, or do you seek security? Perhaps you are thinking about installing a privacy fence or a pool fence. Ensure the material you select is the best choice for your needs.

Once you’ve decided what type of fence you need, think about finding a reputable fence company near you. Fence Consultants has been serving Michigan homeowners for 30 years and is an active member of the American Fence Association, Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce, and the Associated Builders and Contractors. We are also an accredited business with the Better Business Bureau with an A+ rating.

Finally, request a quote and gather all the necessary information. The fence company you select should be able to provide you with a cost estimate as well as a time frame for the fence installation. They should also explain to you any details regarding property lines and/or necessary permits. Have more questions or feel ready to request a quote?
