There are few things in life as rewarding as a project we begin and finish all on our own. Whether we want to tackle the chores or build a shed in the yard, the feeling of completion is rewarding in and of itself! Yet with some projects, it makes more sense to let the professionals lead the way.

One of the best ways to renovate and rejuvenate your yard without breaking the bank is by hiring a team of professional fence installers to work on your home. A newly installed fence can provide curbside appeal, a boost to your home’s value, and it can also add functionality to your home!

Let’s look at a few reasons why you will want to turn to the team at Western Fence Co for help on your next fencing project in Utah.

Save Yourself Both Time & Money

While we adore the DIY mindset, doing it ourselves isn’t always the most cost-effective approach to a project. DIY-ers swear that they can save time and money, but often that isn’t the case. Working on a professional fencing installation will go quicker with a team that has done it before. As Utah’s oldest fence company, Western Fence Co has the experience needed to quickly accomplish an affordable fencing installation.

If your time is valuable, let a professional fence company handle the job.

Minimize Future Maintenance Requirements

Measure twice and cut once, right? In the same way that caution can prevent mistakes, so too can professionalism. One of the main reasons to consider hiring a professional fence company for your backyard installation is to minimize the amount of maintenance that you can expect in the future.

Fence installers like Western Fence Co utilize top-of-the-line materials combined with their professional background to craft long-lasting fencing solutions for clients throughout Utah. From chain-link to vinyl, wood, and aluminum, there is something for every fencing situation.

Requires Extensive Expertise

What could be more simple than a fence? The question answers itself as most homeowners turn to fence installation companies to handle the task. Fencing requires a blend of mortaring, welding, metalworking, woodworking, and carpentry. Not only are there many specialties that need to be understood before construction can begin, but the work itself is also backbreaking and labor-intensive.

Save yourself time, money, and sweat equity by turning to professionals to handle your next fencing installation.

Installing a fence on your property is a significant financial investment and should not be done without a lot of research on the pros and cons of various material options. Vinyl fencing had grown in popularity in recent years. However, before choosing vinyl for your next fence, it is essential to understand the many disadvantages that come with a vinyl fence.

  1. One of the first disadvantages of a vinyl fence is that it does not hold up in adverse weather conditions. If you live in an area that often sees high winds, a vinyl fence might not be the right choice as strong wind gusts can cause it to bend or become dislodged from the ground. Also, unlike a wood fence, vinyl cannot withstand the impact of objects. In the event an object or weather causes the vinyl to break, it can not be repaired like wood or a metal fence, and instead, you will need to replace the entire section. Not only can harsh weather cause the fence to be damaged, but it can also cause the color on the fence to fade and over time, will lead to the need to replace the fence.
  2. Unlike wood, vinyl fences tend to grow mildew. If you water your grass and flowers near the fence regularly, you will find yourself continually needing to clean off the mildew to prevent it from turning to mold. Besides the mildew being a safety concern, it also makes the fence look dirty and unappealing on your property.
  3. Cost is also a significant deterrent to choosing vinyl for a fence. It is by far the most expensive fencing material out there. So if you do not plan on living in your home forever, it may not be the right investment for you.
  4. A fence is one of the first things your guests notice when approaching your property. While vinyl is designed to give the appearance of wood, when you get up close to it, it looks a bit cheaper and not as aesthetically pleasing as wood. The appearance of your fence is not only important as first impressions of your guests but if you go to sell your house, it could potentially become a deterrent to buyers of your home.
  5. When it comes to vinyl, you will have a limited selection of the color of the fence, and once you choose, you are stuck with it unless you replace the entire fence. With a wood fence, you can opt to stain it or even paint it a different color in the future if you would like to change up the look of your property.

No matter what type of fencing you end up choosing, it is crucial to have it installed by a professional so that it will last on your property for years to come. If you have any questions about any type of fencing, feel free to reach out to us today.
