How to Find a garden fence installation / repair professional

Find a tradesman for garden fencing

Finding the right tradesman to install or repair garden fencing can be arduous, but getting one you can trust will be your best assurance of a job well done. Plentific provides a simple service that generates a bespoke list of the best tradesmen in your local area that offer the skills you need, and even gives you quick access to customer reviews to help you make your final decision.

What do you need to know about garden fencing?

With garden fencing it all depends on what you prefer and how much you are willing to pay. Every option will have advantages and disadvantages: wood is cheaper than concrete but must be treated regularly to stop it from rotting. While concrete is more sturdy, people often do not like the way it looks. Do your research into different materials and designs before choosing your favourite.

Depending on the size of your garden you may only need to hire a single tradesman. You can ask them to produce evidence of their qualifications and experience. Do not feel worried about this: the reason you are hiring a tradesman is because you want a professionally completed job. It is a good sign if they are part of a tradesmen’s organisation, as these groups enforce high standards and codes of conduct for their members. You can also ask them to provide customer feedback from previous jobs. 

Ensure that whoever you choose has adequate coverage against accidental damage and liabilities. They should also have a guarantee, in case you are unsatisfied with their finished work.

How much does garden fencing cost?

The cost of installing garden fencing depends on what materials you choose and the size of your garden. Simple lap fence panels could cost around £15 each, while options made of more expensive wood or featuring designs will cost more. Wood is generally cheaper than concrete or metal, but must be treated regularly and is less sturdy, while concrete is much stronger but is less aesthetically appealing. Have a strict budget in place to help you pin down your options. The cost of fencing repairs will depend on the nature of the fault. It can be fairly cheap to have individual sections of a fence repaired, but be careful: your tradesman may have a minimum callout charge.

There are certain tasks that will add to your quote that you can do yourself, such as removing and disposing of your old fencing or digging out concrete and roots. If there is poor access to your garden the tradesmen you hire may have to charge extra, as the job will take longer. Ask for a price breakdown before making a decision, as this will give you ideas about what you can do yourself and will also help you compare your options to find the most cost effective choice.

Great work from Metin on fixing a few things around the house, including installing TV bracket and shoe cabinets, trimming and sanding down door frames and installing new door frame floor separators. Metin was very professional and attentive to details, he advised on best course of action and left the areas cleaned after the work. Would definitely recommend him.

What is outstanding about the men that work for LD Property Services is the personal qualities they bring, they are polite, kind, thoughtful and so hard working. They take pride in their work and will stay later to finish something off or prepare for the next day, they've also worked a couple of Saturdays.

I used BD builders to re clad the front exterior of my house and I have to say, they did a fantastic job. Very friendly, reliable and great price. They were also very clean and tidy. It was nice to see someone else taking pride in your property other than yourself. I would highly recommend and will be using them again in the future.
