It is no secret that getting repairs made or a new project underway can be an extremely stressful experience. You have to worry about planning the project and even worse, getting the money together to pay for it but once you do that the true challenge begins. You have to find a contractor that you can trust to do a good job.

You just have to do a little research and make sure you are hiring the right contractor for the right job.  For instance, if you wanted to hire an expert fencing contractor to install the new privacy fence around your hot tub, you wouldn’t want to hire someone that is known for roof installation.

So, before you start contacting companies you should:

  • Go to your local building department. They should be able to tell you if you have all the permits and paperwork you need for your project.
  • Check your local ordinances, laws and Home Owner Association rules to make sure there won’t be any problems after you have finished your project.

When you are ready to start your search for an Atlanta fence contractor you should:

  1. Talk with friends, hardware store employees and your local building permit authority. Referrals go a long way when looking for a fencing contractor and word of mouth is a great way to find an expert.
  2. Check into the contractor’s license status and see how their license history looks. If the contractor keeps letting their license lapse, it isn’t a good sign.
  3. Check the Better Business Bureau and online sources to see if there are any complaints lodged against the contractor. Read the online complaints carefully to screen out trolls and malcontents but even one BBB compliant is usually too much.
  4. Ask questions. Get all the information you can before hiring anyone.
