Whether it’s because you are looking to keep your youngsters secure, keep your dog in the yard, or keep stray animals trespassers out, you’ve probably stopped by this site because you are looking for a reliable Flat Rock fence company.

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 company over another.

1) Company Location – the current economy has caused many fence companies to go through tough times of late.  It’s no secret that lots of people in Flat Rock as well SE Michigan as a whole are holding off on purchasing anything and everything that they normally would and this includes installing a fence.

Let’s ignore the fact that this could be a safety hazard that ends up producing disastrous results and just deal with the facts.  People are not installing as many fences as they used to which in turn has led fence companies from all across the area to try and expand their area of business in an effort the find a few more customers each month to meet their quota.

Sounds fine for business, but in the end what often happens is that when a fence installation job is located too far away from a company’s base of operations, that job will often be relegated to the bottom of the workload and often have its install date pushed back needlessly.

For this reason, it’s best to work with a Flat Rock company that works in and around your community each and every day.  This goes a long way to ensure your job is completed on time.


2) Flat Rock Building Code Standards – obviously, we hope that you’ll choose Veterans Fence Company to install your next fencing system, should you make the decision to go with a company that is perhaps owned by someone in your family or a member of your church, ask them if they know how to deal with the code enforcement people of Flat Rock.

Any company 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 Flat Rock code enforcement desk.


3) Insured and Bonded– you’ll want to make sure that you check to ensure the fence company you contract with 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.


At Veterans Fence we’ve always maintained our contractor’s license in good standing as well as all the required insurance coverage to give you that extra peace of mind when our fence company is on-site installing your fence.  You can ask for a copy at any time and we’ll be glad to provide it to you.
