Leave It to the Pros! 3 Reasons DIY Fence Installation Is a Bad Idea

Whether it's the traditional white picket fence to complete the American dream or a six-foot-tall wooden fence to gain some privacy, one question remains. Will you opt for professional fence installation or attempt to save some money by doing it yourself?

We can't tell you what to do, but we can offer some valuable insight. While there's nothing wrong with learning how to do projects such as basic house maintenance and renovations on your own, there are certain jobs that are better left in the hands of professionals. Installing a fence, in our opinion, is one of them.

However, we don't expect you to simply take our word for it. Keep reading for our top three reasons why DIY fence installation may not be one of your better ideas.

1. Time

First and foremost, installing a fence takes a considerable amount of time, especially if you do it correctly. This time will only be prolonged by inexperienced hands, improper tools, and a lack of knowledge. While we're not doubting your ability to learn, adapt, and overcome, do you really want to spend all of your free time building a fence for the next few weeks or longer?

Additionally, when you attempt DIY projects you're not necessarily qualified for, you often have to redo certain parts. Worst yet, you may even need to start over from scratch if it's a complete DIY disaster.

Opting for professional fence installation will cost you some money, sure, but it will more than makeup for it in the amount of time it saves you. Time, after all, is the one thing you can spend in this life and never earn back. 

2. Professional Work

Aside from saving you time, choosing a professional fence installation over doing the job yourself guarantees quality, professional work. We have experienced contractors and the right tools for the job, ensuring your fence will be built to last, while holding up to the most scrutinizing aesthetic standards.

For example, we offer four main types of fences - aluminum, PVC, wood, and chainlink. We also take every measure to ensure your fence is built to hold up to the harshest conditions (wind, snow, ice, dogs, and more). This includes the proper installation of posts and only using high-quality materials. 

3. Warranties

Finally, when you install a fence in your backyard using the DIY method, there are no guarantees or warranties. If it falls down the next day, there's no one but yourself to point the finger at. You have to fix it.

When you opt for a professional fence installation, however, you're also opting for guaranteed work, often backed by warranties. For example, we guarantee our materials and labor and will make any necessary repair for free based on the circumstances of the damage. Rest assured, if it's in any way our fault, we'll cover it.
