We understand the lure of a DIY project because in our minds we are saving money and time and have the “we can do it” spirit; however, we all know that is usually not the reality of it. Sure, those videos online make it look so simple or your best friend’s cousin’s friend told you how easily they completed a project. Of course, there are numerous “small” projects that we tackle around the house with no problem, but there are some that are better left to the professionals in that area. Let’s take a glance at a few things that need to be considered when deciding between and DIY fence verses a professionally installed one.
For DIY, all planning is 100% on your shoulders. You must source all the building materials, tools, and make all the decisions. Make sure to check with your local municipality so that you are appraised of building codes and whether you need a permit issued. Every location has different codes, restrictions, and standards that you will have to learn by yourself, unless you contract an expert for help.
The time it takes to build your fence will hinge upon several factors including the type of fence that you are installing, as well as how much experience you have with carpentry and digging. Many folks have begun projects only to discover themselves knee deep in unforeseen headaches and delays along the way. Ultimately, hiring a fence company saves your hard-earned, well deserved relaxation time.
Theoretically, a DIY job is cheaper; however, that is usually just not the case especially with a big job, like a fence. This holds true for fencing situations where you know all aspects of the job. This includes buying just enough materials, budgeting your time, and knowing where to dig. Let’s not forget the many tools required to complete the job, too. A professional fence company saves you from any additional costs you may incur from having to redo the work if you don’t get it right the first time, for purchasing too many supplies, or having to purchase all the tools you will need.
