Many property owners who are thinking about placing a fence around their property wonder what are the pros and cons of installing a fence on their own vs. hiring a professional fencing company. After purchasing a home, a fence is a property owner’s biggest and most important investment. Fences secure land, add visual appeal and provide a property divider. When you opt to install a fence on your own, it can be one of the biggest DIY landscape projects that you’ll ever undertake. It’s worth it to hire a professional fencing contractor like XL Fencing to ensure that your investment is properly installed and lasts for many years to come.

Our experienced team of fencing contractors will work closely with you to develop a customized fence design that meets all of your fencing needs and complements your property.

A fencing project requires laying out fence lines, acquiring any necessary permits, digging postholes, mixing concrete, setting posts, and installing rails and pickets. Installing a fence on your own may save you money at first since you are only paying for the cost of materials and possible renting of equipment, but if you are building a fence from scratch you may be paying in a lot of time and labor.
Even though there are pre-made DIY fence kits, unexpected things evitably come up throughout the fence installation process. Maybe the soil in your yard is rockier, making it more difficult to dig. If the utilities aren’t properly marked then you may encounter cable wiring where you thought you were in the clear. Addressing unexpected challenges can cost extra time and money, especially if you have to purchase an extra tool that you didn’t anticipate needing.
When you hire a professional fencing contractor, you are not just paying for materials but you are also paying for time, labor and expertise. A fencing project may take the average property owner weeks meanwhile a fencing company can complete the entire job in a matter of hours. An experienced fencing contractor also knows how to handle any unexpected challenges that may come up. When it comes to maintenance and repair, certain fences like wood fences need to be painted every few years, which can be done routinely by a professional fencing company.
