Minnesota Fence Builder >> How to Choose a Fence Installer
Anytime that work crews come to your property to do work for you, there are risks. If the fence installation causes an injury to you, damages your property or your neighbor’s property, or if a worker is injured on the job, you can be held liable or have to pay for what happens. In addition to those risks, many homeowners and business property owners are concerned with the behavior of workers. All of those concerns are valid ones, and you should always expect that any fence installer will be careful to avoid reasons for concern. Here are some of the issues to consider when hiring a fence instalaltion contractor:
- Liability – Homeowners and business owners are liable for things that happen on their property. While your homeowner’s insurance or business insurance protects you against damages caused by yourself, your own employees, or for damages caused by trees or other hazards on your property, it usually doesn’t cover damages caused by contractors, such a fence installer, you hire. Before making a hiring decision, you should make certain that the contractor has insurance to cover damages cause by the crew. As a leading fence installation company in the Minneapolis St. Paul metro, we carry full liability coverage, and will be happy to show you proof of that coverage.
- Worker’s Compensation – If a worker from your hired fence company is injured while working on your project, you could be faced with a financial responsibility to pay for the cost of the injury, unless the company carries proper worker’s compensation insurance. Some companies hire casual employees and don’t carry this type of insurance. Make sure to check whether the fence installers are covered with proper worker’s compensation insurance. As the most trusted fence contractor in Minnesota, our own employees are covered by our worker’s compensation insurance.
- Utility Location – In Minnesota, the state law requires that before digging on your property, you or your contractor must contact Gopher State One Call. This requirement helps avoid costly underground utility damages or even deadly accidents. Some irresponsible installers may tell you to contact Gopher State One Call yourself. In contrast, we will always handle that necessary process properly ourselves, before the beginning of our installation work. We will also discuss other underground installations that may be on your property with you, to protect you and your property from damage.
- Workers’ Behavior – You may know of workers who have behaved poorly while doing work on your property or on the property of someone you know. Disrespectful behavior, unnecessary noise, bad language, and impolite interactions with property owners are things you should never have to face when a contractor comes to work at your home or business. As the most reputable fence company in the Twin Cities, our installers will never engage in such behavior. Our training and dedication to customer service means that every employee of our company will work efficiently and respectfully at all times, and will always behave in a way that reflects well on our high standards.
