When it comes to protecting your business, there are many ways to do it. Having a commercial fence installed is a great one. However, the price of having this installed may have you wary at first. Luckily, with these tips below, you’ll be able to save yourself a bundle on your commercial fence installation.
Pick an Inexpensive Material
The material that you utilize is the biggest deciding factor of the price that you’ll pay for your fence. The most inexpensive materials are going to be chain-link and some lightweight vinyl. On the more expensive end, wrought iron and heavy vinyl will break the bank. The fencing material that you can use will highly depend on the functionality of your fence. If you’re just looking to create a boundary, then a chain-link fence is all that you need and will be light on your budget.
Opt for Installation in the Slow Season
When you think of having a fence installed, you may initially think of installing it during the spring or summer months. This is the busiest time of year for commercial fencing installers. To save yourself a bit of money, consider waiting to have your fence installed until after the busy season. Many fencing contractors can offer discounted prices on leftover materials. The slow season is usually between December and February.
Only Install Fencing Where Necessary
The more area that needs fencing, the higher the cost is going to be. Do yourself a favor and actually think about where you need a fence to be. If you’re just trying to protect outside assets, then consider having a fence that is just big enough to encase them. While it may be nice to have a fence around your entire property, it can get expensive, especially when it comes to slopes and trees. Take a moment and consider what areas may be trickier to install a fence around and see if there is an easier way to avoid that area to save yourself some money.
Get Your Own Permits
The second biggest cost of any commercial fence installation is labor costs. It’s best to do as much as possible to reduce the amount of time that your fencing contractor has to spend on your project. Getting permits is one of these areas where you can do it yourself. With a simple look online and a call to your local planning office, you can get all the information you need to apply and get a permit for your new fence.
Having a fence installed can be a great way to protect your business assets and boost your security level. However, it can get expensive. By following the tips outlined for you above, you should be able to save yourself a bundle on your next commercial fence installation.
