There are many reasons you may be looking for a Southgate fence company.  You may be wanting to ensure safety for your family, friends, and guests or you may have gotten a new dog that needs to be secured.

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 Southgate 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 be honest with each other. 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.

Make sure you look deeper into this type of situation though because you don’t want to be the victim when a company based in Jackson doesn’t come by to install your fence for weeks and weeks after they’ve already taken your deposit.
For this reason, it’s best to work with a Southgate fence 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) Southgate Building Code Standards – obviously, we hope that you’ll choose Veterans Fence Company to install your next fencing system, but should you choose someone else, make sure that they are very familiar with the code regulations about installing a fence for Southgate.

Remember, a company based in Jackson can run an ad in the local paper or Yellow Pages but that doesn’t mean they have the experience dealing with the Southgate community planning department.  This is another reason why working with a local fence company is in your best interests.

3) Bonded and Insured – make sure to ask to see a copy of insurance paperwork for any company you choose.  This is crucial because many fence companies are operating without it, or have let it lapse.  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.

We hope that these tips have helped you get a firm grasp of some of the things that you’ll want to consider when choosing a Southgate fence company.  Feel free to call at any time to have someone answer any questions you may have about getting your new fence installed properly…and at the best price.  Our phone number is 313-381-8530.
