What makes a quality fence?

“The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the pleasure of low price is forgotten.”

This is good advice when it comes to any home improvement project. Cheap out on products and services and you’ll get a cheap finished product. That means it’s more likely to wear out quickly, require repair and likely a replacement far sooner than you had hoped. The same principle applies to building a new fence for your property. Investing in a durable, long-lasting fence built with quality products and expert craftsmanship will pay off in the long run.

There are many options for your residential or commercial fence. Before making a decision on your new fence project, Soldan Fence & Metals in Edmonton offers some things to consider:

What function do you want your fence to perform?


Are you looking for a creatively designed, unique fence to beautify your property and add to your home’s aesthetic appeal? Do you need something strong and sturdy to boost security or a taller fence to maximize privacy and reduce noise in your yard and home? Fences can be built specifically to keep in pets, provide a safe place for children to play, enclose an outdoor pool or tennis court.  Determine what specific functions you want your new fence to perform and work with Edmonton fence contractors like Soldan Fence & Metals to create a solid plan for your project.

How to hire Edmonton fence contractors?

When hiring a professional fence contractor, it’s important to do your research on the company. Ask them for a list of references and speak to other customers who have hired their services. Protect yourself by making sure they have a proper business licence, insurance and WCB coverage. These important credentials, along with Better Business Bureau accreditation is what gives Soldan Fence & Metal and A+ rating on RenovationFind.com.

Get a detailed contract in writing. Your contract should include the scope of work, cost of labour plus all the materials that will be used during construction so you can verify what you ordered and what will be installed. The fence contractor should also explain the process to you, preferably also in writing, including a timeline for the project, who is removing the old fence and when, who is hauling dirt or materials away, building and completing the new fence.
