Installing or replacing a fence at your strata is a huge job, when you google “fence contractor” in the lower mainland or in the Okanagan, Premium Fence Company is usually the top result along with dozens of other companies.
You’ll want to make sure that you hire a fence contractor that has the right qualifications to ensure that your fence follows best practices and proper installation methods. So how do you pick the right fence company for your strata? That’s the question we will be answering today, we hope this article serves as a guide for you when you and the council are attempting to select the best company for the job.
Hire a specialist:
It’s important that you look to hire a specialist (a company that works specifically with fence installation and/or replacement) the job is most likely going to be done right the first time if you choose a specialist over a generalist. Here at Premium Fence we believe in that philosophy and do our best to live it. That is why we specialize exclusively in full strata fence replacement projects. We wanted this to be our area of expertise and we are experts because we have worked with thousands of strata across the province.

We have been in business for 35 years, and we have seen it all. We believe the reason we have been around so long and continue to grow is in our name. We do our best to provide our clients with a premium experience.
Read reviews and ask around:
We can’t stress this enough, when you and your council members are looking for fence contractors to interview then you absolutely need to be reading reviews on Google and Facebook. The more 5 star reviews a company has the better. You can also call the company and ask to see examples of projects they have completed for other strata’s. We are happy to provide our clients with this information if they call in and ask. A good company should be proud to show its projects to prospects. It would also be very beneficial to ask others such as your property manager and or council members from other strata’s if you know them about good companies and get referrals that way.
Be sure to ask about materials:
When you are interviewing fence contractors, be sure to ask questions about what materials they would recommend based on your needs. Ask about the quality of the materials and how long they can be expected to last. Also, be sure to ask where the products are manufactured. A North American factory would be much better at servicing a warranty claim and has a local reputation to live up to. We use only the highest quality materials from well-established companies that we have had relationships with for years. There is no shortage of fence companies using lower-quality material that wears out faster. It is often hard to tell low manufacturer quality from a showroom sample; this can sometimes create the illusion that another fence company is using the same material, however many times they are not.
Ask about what happens during and after the project is complete:
Okay so you have interviewed multiple different fence companies and you have received quotes from all of them. You have selected your company and signed a contract to start construction. You will most likely have questions as construction is happening and you’ll want to make sure that this company will come and tend to any repairs or mishaps that occur after the job has been completed.
In order to receive everything that is written above, you’ll want to inquire about their customer service team and their warranty department. Premium Fence has the best warranty in the industry. We have a department dedicated to servicing these claims, and we ensure that they are dealt with quickly and efficiently. We do what we say we’re going to do. If something goes wrong and is included in our warranty guidelines, we will fix it. We also have a dedicated customer service team in-house that can answer any questions or concerns you have before, during, and after the installation process. Warranties are looked after in a timely manner, and our team strives to address every request within 1 – 2 business days.
