4 Reasons to Hire the Best Licensed Fencing Company With a Proven Track Record

Are you looking to install a fence for your home? Keep these 4 points in mind when seeking the top fence company:

1.  Experience is Everything – Before trusting what you hope is the best fence company or contractor with your home's fence installation, it's important to know how long they have been in the business. It is worth doing some research on the company you have picked to see what areas they specialize in. A general contractor may not always have the expertise required to build an excellent fence. All American Fence, however, has been installing quality vinyl and chain link fences for over 30 years, so when you hire us, you can rest assured that we have the experience and the proven track record.

2.  Accolades & Online Reviews – Do some investigation on the contractor you wish to hire. Can you find them on verified, respected review sites? Beware of sites that allow anonymous reviews, which may or may not be fake. And make sure not to base your judgment on just a single review. Look at several. It also helps if, along with positive reviews, the contractor has won any awards. This shows that they are a well-respected name in their field. All American Fence was recently voted the Best Fence Company in the High Desert, an award we have been honored to win for multiple years.

3.  License — When picking out a contractor for a fence installation, it’s important to know if they are licensed or not. Having a license, as well as the appropriate certifications, demonstrates that the company is qualified to handle the work. Acquiring this licensure requires that even the best fence company goes through training. In fact, it is illegal for a company to operate without being licensed, although many still do. Furthermore, a license is an indication of the contractor's knowledge and skill in their field. Having a license also protects you legally in case of any issues encountered during or after the fence installation.

4.  Price – When considering whether to hire a contractor for a fence installation or even fence repair, the price they quote is something that you must pay attention to. Many customers fall for choosing to go with the cheapest price, without finding out what materials are used and if the contractor is even licensed. Saving money is great, but beware not to go a route that may leave you with a poorly installed fence that was made with cheaper materials, which, in the long-run, will end up costing you more money.

The next time you are looking for the best fence company to work on your fence, keep these 4 points in mind to find the perfect match for your needs. If you have any questions or concerns, or if you would like for us to come out and give you a free estimate, feel free to give us a call today!

 

Vinyl fencing has been a popular choice for the 21st-century homeowner who wants something other than a traditional looking barrier and who doesn't have a lot of time to devote to the maintenance of a fence. If you are a homeowner attempting to secure the privacy of your home, or simply want to make it more visually dazzling, then you need to consider installing ranch style vinyl fencing. There are several benefits of vinyl fencing you may not get from other types of fencing.

Aesthetically Pleasing 

In those areas where homes sit on larger land, vinyl fencing would be the most aesthetically pleasing option because it will give the home a ranch-style appearance. For this reason, vinyl fencing for homes in Apple Valley and Oak Hills would look great. Since a vinyl fence doesn't require repeat coats of paint over time and is not susceptible to termites, it's an affordable option in the long-term with virtually zero maintenance required. 

Vinyl is Better than Wood

Compared to a wood fence, vinyl ranch style fencing is much more flexible. Not only does vinyl fencing require much less maintenance as compared to wood fencing, but if you want to clean the fence, you simply spray it with water and any dirt will be dislodged easily due to the vinyl's non-porous and glossy surface. To keep your fence looking nice, clean the vinyl material with basic household products. 

Another benefit of vinyl fencing is that, since the material is the same color throughout it's depth, it doesn't require a coat of paint to keep it looking uniform, as would be required with other materials. Wood fencing will usually be susceptible to termite damage and fungus attacks as well, whereas a vinyl fence doesn't involve any such hassles. Since vinyl ranch style fencing doesn't absorb moisture, it will never rot either. This type of fence is also unlikely to crack or split.

Environmentally Friendly

After manufacturing, vinyl fencing is not treated with harmful chemicals and is therefore considered a non-toxic type of material. Vinyl can be recycled after it is no longer needed since natural gas is a major ingredient used in its composition. The beauty of a vinyl fence is that it can also be suited to any type of home whether it's a modern home, colonial style home, or a ranch.

Before beginning your hunt for the perfect ranch style fencing, it is important to ask yourself what your main goals are, whether it's privacy, security for children and pets, or better curb appeal. In recent years vinyl fencing has become popular as an alternative to wood fencing, and it’s easy to see why.
