A fence installation is a big project, no matter if you plan on hiring a professional or you aim to do it yourself. But when you consider the time and money you’ll have to dedicate to a fence installation, it’s essential to look at the big picture. There are some advantages and disadvantages to both options — professional and DIY — that you may not have considered before.

Professional Help: The Pros and Cons

Professional fencing contractors know what they’re doing. With experts on the job, our fencing project goes quickly and smoothly. If you’re on a strict deadline for project completion or you just aren’t confident in your fence-building skills, this is the route to go.

The main con to hiring a pro is that you have to pay for their expertise! It can drive up the cost and force you to expand your budget to get the fence you need.

DIY Project: The Benefits and Drawbacks

The do-it-yourself route is a common one for many of the customers at Utah Fence Warehouse. One of the main motivations to install a fence on your own is that you’ll save money. It’s much more cost-effective to handle a fence installation yourself versus paying a contractor for their time.

Tool rental can drive up the cost, but Utah Fence Warehouse allows our customers to rent our tools and equipment for free. It’s one of the ways we try to make getting a new fence easy and affordable for our Utah customers.

Another big benefit is you’re able to construct the fence exactly the way you want it. You don’t have to worry that a breakdown in communication will translate to a result you don’t like.

As far as the drawbacks go, you will have to dedicate a lot of time to your project, especially if it’s your first time. When you encounter challenges, it might be difficult to figure out what to do if you don’t have the experience.
