Paling fences in Melbourne are a dime a dozen but paling fence contractors are not. Your search for a tradesman to erect your Melbourne Timber Fence should be thorough. I will explain why.
My search for a paling fence contractor began online. There were numerous options but I did not simply choose the ones on the first page of the search engines. I would have looked at maybe 15-20 different websites.
I then ask questions to get a feel for the guy I am talking to. One question I ask is “Are you a qualified Carpenter?”. I have had some interesting replies to this.
One told me that he was not. He was a public servant but wanted to work outdoors so he bought himself a trailer and a nail gun and started his own paling fence business. Obviously this phone call ended quickly.
Don’t be afraid to ask if they are a carpenter. You want to absolute best to do your timber fence job so don’t settle for nothing but the best. Sure, the job may cost a touch more but for the sake of having a professional job done it is worth it.
You will want to hire a contractor who is busy. This tells you he is at the top of his trade and in demand because of this. A timber paling fence contractor in Melbourne who tells you he can do your job anytime probably has limited work on due to their previous work standards.
One final point to keep in mind is that at the completion of the job it might look great and you are happy. Go back and look at your paling fence in a week or two and check to see if the fence has started to lean or any other imperfections. If there is, get straight on the phone to them and let them know.
