The Best Fence Contractors in Queens Are the Ones Proven Safe To Hire 


New York state does not require any state license of fence contractors in Queens so there is no state standard for competency.  New York City requires residential fence contractors in Queens to have a city license, which requires passing an exam with 21 correct answers out of 30, though the exam is not one for trade skill or knowledge on fencing specifically.  Commercial fence contractors require no such license.

So the NYC license for residential fencing is no guarantee that any particular company for fence repair or new fences in Queens is even competent, doing business ethically, delivering value, or satisfying customers.

This makes it all the more significant that all contractors for fences in Queens who bear The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have been cleared by our research staff as passing all the requirements for Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 status such as survey phone calls to previous customers to verify high satisfaction, good complaint record, verified NYC license (residential fences only), proof of liability insurance for your protection, only employees legal to work in the U.S., and more.



Fence Contractors in Queens Perform Valueable Services
For issues beyond those of simple privacy, homeowners are forever delineating their property with new fencing. Maybe you dream of the simple serenity of a white picket fence. Maybe that last visit from the neighbor's generous dog was the last straw.  Whatever your reasons, local fence contractors can help you. The installation of a good fence can be a large and difficult job, but the fence contractors in Queens provide all parts, skills and labor while you sit back and watch. 

Fence contractors in Queens might work solely with specialized aspects of fencing, including using just certain materials or styles, but others can design and build for any situation, fashion or environment, from ranches to residential, commercial and industrial fences. Fence contractors can construct livestock fences, deer barriers, or vineyard fences, as well as cattle guards. Some do their own fabrication for ornamental iron, estate rail, tennis court enclosures, bocce ball courts, pool fences, metal beam guard railings, and sound walls.

When comparing fence contractors and their bids, one key area to watch is the material being quoted (amount, type, grade, thickness, treated versus non-treated, etc.)  Another is how fence posts will be seated (how deep, how much concrete, treated posts versus non-treated, etc.) These are variables that effect price and the longevity of the fence. Fence posts seated in a cheap, shoddy manor means a fence that will soon be leaning. Untreated wood posts will rot in the ground. Both are ways that a bid can appear cheaper but will actually cost you more in the long run due to costly repairs or replacements that you could have avoided by choosing the better company to begin with.


Fence Contractors in Queens Work with a Variety of Building Materials
If you're seriously considering installing a fence, don't feel limited by chain link or whitewashed pine. There are a number of materials available to contractors that can enhance the appearance of your home or provide different levels of security. Take the various options into consideration as you mentally envision your ideal fence. If you have a more traditional preference for wood, cedar, redwood, or pressure treated fir, many fence contractors will have the skill to fabricate it for you.

If you prefer more contemporary fencing, some local fence contractors in Queens can fix or install concrete, color vinyl coated materials, mesh, or stainless steel. For higher security, fence construction specialists work with non-climbing designs, ornamental iron, barbed wire, high tensile materials, wrought iron, bronze, aluminum, or hand forged iron.

Fence contractors can usually work with efficiency materials as well, including wire, environmentally friendly lumber, chain link, pipe, solid board, recycled fence boards, and PVC pipe.

Questions To Ask Fence Contractors in Queens NY 


When it comes to hiring good fence contractors in Queens NY, first ask these questions about their experience, abilities, and promises:


• How many other fences like yours have they installed with regards to material, size, commercial versus residential, chain link versus vinyl fence versus wood fence, privacy fence versus deer barrier, custom fence design, etc.?

• How long have they been fence installers in Queens NY specifically? (Different geographical regions have different climates and soil conditions that will affect choices about installation methods, finishes, materials, etc. The amount of experience as fence installers in your specific area indicates potential knowledge of these conditions and how to adjust for them.)

• Will they give you names and numbers of previous customers for whom they did the same kind of fence who you can call? (All fence contractors in Queens NY bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their customer references called by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Will they give you their cost estimate in writing, itemized to include the amount of material you're getting, brand names and item numbers?  (This is key because cheap fence companies in Queens NY often only seem cheaper by quoting you less material, or lower quality material that will turn out to be more expensive for you later in extra maintenance, or earlier replacement or repairs.)

• Can they recommend a simple change you could make to the specifications that would significantly lower the cost, and if so, what would you be giving up in performance? Likewise, do they see a big gain in performance or appearance that you could get for just a little bit more money?

• How deep into the ground will they set the fence posts and with how much cement? (Doing substandard post setting is another way that a fence company can only seem cheaper than another by doing less work with less material.)

• In the case of wood fencing, is the wood treated to be weather resistant and how?  


• If wood fence posts, does the fence company do anything in the install process to stop the posts from rotting in the ground?

• Are there manufacturer warranties on any of the materials to be used?


• Will they give you a written guarantee on their labor, aside from any manufacturer's warranty? If so, what does it cover exactly and for how long after the fence installation?

• How long will it take them to complete the fencing once they begin?


• Do they have a showroom where you can look at samples of different finishes, styles, or materials? If not, will they bring you samples or go with you to a supply store to do this?

• Will they put in writing that the new fencing meets the local zoning ordinances and codes of your community?


• Will a permit be needed for the new fence? If so, who goes and gets the permits, you or the fence contractor?



• Can they vouch that all their employees sent to your property are legally allowed to work in the U.S.? (All fence companies in Queens bearing The Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already signed an agreement to only hire documented workers.)

• Will they show you proof of liability insurance and workers' comp? (All fence contractors in Queens NY bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had proof of insurance verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)

• Do they use only their own permanent employees, or do they use subcontractors, and if so, what are the names of those subcontracted companies so you can research them?

When you've decided on the best fence contractors in Queens NY for you, make sure they have a NYC license if the fencing is for residential. (All fence contractors bearing the Prime Buyer's Report-TOP 10 symbol have already had their NYC license verified by our research staff so you don't have to.)

Common Terms for Fencing and Fence Contractors in Queens NY

 

Aluminum Fences - Aluminum fences and aluminum fencing are long-lasting fences. Aluminum fences never rust and are known for their light but sturdy fence construction and for their Old World fencing appearance.

Bamboo Fencing - Bamboo fences are made from bamboo, the fastest growing wood-like plant. Many eco-conscious homeowners look for bamboo fencing because it is a sturdy and beautiful replacement for slower growing hardwood fencing. Some bamboo fences come as rolled fencing so that they can be used to cover or hide chainlink fences or unsightly fencing.

Chain Link Fences - Chain link fences are popular fences made from steel posts and chain link fencing. Chain link fences are often used for dog fences and as perimeter fences for property since they are one of the options for cheap fences.

Corner Posts - Fence posts located at a corner where two sections of fencing meet are called corner posts.

Deer Fences - Deer fencing is fencing that keeps deer from entering and damaging your property. Deer fences usually consist of tall fence posts that support high-strength plastic fence grids or mesh. This unique fence construction allows you to see through the fence and maintains a safe fencing option for the deer while keeping them outside the fence perimeter.

Dog Fences - Dog fences are visually appealing and strong fences that keep dogs safe and close to home. Dog fencing is tall so that dogs can't jump over the fences. Some dog fences are electric fences to discourage climbing or jumping. Hidden dog fences are also available to maintain your property's appearance.

End Posts - Fence posts located at the end of a fence line are called end posts. All end posts are only attached to fencing on one side of the end post.

Electric Fences - Electric fencing is any kind of fence that is electrified or has electrical current running through the fence. Electric fences are most often used as farm fencing to keep animals in. Electric dog fences and electric deer fences are available as well.

Fence Line - A fence line is the boundary that is created by the position of a fence.

Fence Panels / Fence Sections - Also called fence sections, fence panels are sections of fencing that are preassembled before fence installation.

Fencing Pliers - A common tool for fence companies and fencing installers, fencing pliers are made specifically for fencing projects. Fencing pliers are especially important for installing wire fencing, chain link fencing and barbed wire fencing.

Gates - Openings in fence lines where people, vehicles and animals can pass through are known as gates. Fencing gates can be decorative gates or can match the fence. Electric gates, double swing gates and hidden gates are also options offered by many fence contractors.

Lattice Fencing - Lattice fencing is wood fencing that is built with lattice panels. Lattice fencing is usually made from cedar latticework and is often used as decorative fencing or at the top of fences to turn regular fences into privacy fences. Homeowners often train vines or other plants up lattice fencing.

Metal Fences - Metal fencing is usually decorative fencing or ornate fencing made from metal. Metal fences can be very heavy, so a good fencing contractor will discuss your options for materials used in your new metal fence. Many metal fences have electric gates.

Ornamental Fencing - Ornamental fences are wrought iron fences or any other fences made of fencing material with an aesthetic appearance. Ornamental fences, like other ornate fences, are often used as a decorative and functional fencing optionn.

Perimeter Fences - Fence lines that surround the outer edges of property or yard are known as perimeter fences. Decorative wood fences and metal fences are common perimeter fences for homes or areas that need a decorative fence.

Picket Fences - A typical decorative fence type, picket fences are any kind of fencing that is built with evenly spaced fence slats.

Post Caps
- The caps covering the end of fence posts are known as post caps. Post caps are generally used in vinyl fencing, PVC fencing and chain link fences.

Post Drivers - Fence installers use post drivers to sink fence posts into the ground.

Post and Rail Fencing - Post and rail fences are informal, natural and open fences. Variations of post and rail fencing include zigzag fences and split rail fences. Because they have such wide openings between the fence slats, post and rail fences are not good security fences. Instead, post and rail fencing is used as decorative fencing.

Privacy Fences - important fences in cities and areas such as yards where you don't want people to see in, privacy fences are fences that have tight vertical slats. Some privacy fences are two-sided fences with two layers vertical slats to block sight.

Split rail fences, like post and rail fences, are generally used as decorative fences that mark the edge of a property while still allowing a view of the landscape.
