How to find a local, reliable fencing company

Fences serve many purposes, from adding a layer of privacy to your garden to increasing your home’s security by creating a border around your property. The good thing is that they come in a large range of materials and designs, so you can style your fence to blend in with your surroundings and match your home’s look.

What can a fencing company help you with?

A new fence can significantly improve your garden’s appearance, giving it a tidy structure whilst boosting your home’s kerb appeal.

A fencer can help you install a wide range of different fence styles and materials. In particular, the most popular fence materials include:

Fencing MaterialKey Features
Wooden fencingWood is the most popular domestic fence material, as it is more affordable than metal fencing choices. Once installed, your fencing specialist will paint and seal your panels to suit your tastes. Wood is prone to rotting and warping, so you’ll need to look after it at least once every few years, depending on how much water and sunshine your fence is exposed to  
Chain link fencingChain link fences are made out of metal chains that are meshed together and attached to concrete or metal stability poles. They act as great deterrents for thieves or vandals, making them a great option for anyone looking to invest in security fencing. Applying a PVC coating to your wire fence will protect it from the elements, preventing rust and allowing you to apply a choice of colours to your fencing  
Metal fencingRanging from aluminium to wrought iron, metal fencing options require less maintenance than wood and tend to be considered a more attractive alternative to wire. You can opt for an intricate design, though this will increase your fence’s overall maintenance, requiring you to sand and repaint your fence every two to three years

A fencing service can also carry out fence repair services, so make sure to add plenty of details about your project and what you’d like when you post a job.

When properly installed and maintained, a quality fence can last a lifetime. That’s why it’s important that you choose a skilled fencing company to carry out your fence installation.

Factors to consider when choosing a fencing company

It’s really important that you choose a reliable fencing company to carry out work on your garden. Failing to do this can result in stress and expensive repairs. 

Before you hire, you should do your research to ensure that your fence installers:

  1. Are an experienced company with a strong history of successful projects
  2. Have all the necessary licenses and insurance needed to protect you and their workers
  3. Have a good range of positive reviews from previous customers vouching for their reliability
  4. Are available to carry out the work in the timeframe you need it by
  5. Are quoting a price and payment option that you are happy with, having compared the quote with other local fencing companies

A local fencing company is more likely to respond quickly, as they’ll be right around the corner and ready to help.

How much does it cost to hire a fencing company?

How much you’ll end up spending on your new fence depends on a range of factors, including the size of your fence, what material you want, and where you live in the UK.

On average, you can expect to pay anywhere between £1,000 and £5,200 for a new garden fence. The type of fence panel you choose (hit and miss panels, close board fencing, Venetian panels, picket fences or lap panels) will impact on costs, as will how many wood or concrete fence posts you get.

For more information about buying, maintaining and getting rid of a fence, read our 2023 fencing cost guide. Or, if you’re thinking of renovating other parts of your garden as well, check out our garden landscaping cost guide for more details on patio, block paving and artificial grass installations.

Do I need planning permission to erect a fence?

You can remove or replace a garden fence without applying for planning permission, as long as the fence doesn’t increase in height.

For new fences, you can avoid applying for planning permission as long as your fence is under two metres (or under one metre high if it’s near a road used by vehicles).

Different rules may apply if your fence forms a boundary with a listed building, or if you live in a conservation area. Contact your local planning authority for more advice.

For more details on applying for planning permission, read our planning permission guide or visit the Planning Portal website.

Who owns the fence between houses?

It’s not always clear who owns the fence dividing your property. If that fence is old or damaged, you might be thinking about replacing it. Before you do, you’ll have to find out whether or not you own it.

Check your title, plan, or conveyance deed first. If you see a ‘T’ mark on the plan (a T on your side of the fence), then the fence belongs to you. Read our garden fence ownership blog for more information.

Even if you do own the fence that divides your property from your neighbour’s, it’s polite to consult them before any work begins.

Questions to ask a local fencing company before you hire

How many years of experience do you have?

Knowing how much experience your garden fencer has will allow you to pick a fencing company who you are confident has enough expertise to carry out a high quality job. When you’re finding a fencing specialist through Rated People, head over to their profile to check out the pictures on their work gallery and their ratings and reviews.

How much will the job cost?

Asking how much the job will cost will help you budget for the job and ensure price transparency before you hire. How much you’ll end up spending depends on the scope of your project, and where you live in the UK, so make sure you add plenty of details when you post a job.

How long will the job take?

Knowing what your project’s estimated timeline is will help you set realistic expectations about how long your fence installation will take to complete.

Are you licensed and insured?

Make sure to ask your fencing company what insurance they have before you hire. This will protect both parties and ensure you hire a skilled tradesperson. Whilst it’s not a requirement, it’s a good idea for your fencing specialist to have public liability insurance to cover you and them against any accidental damage or personal injuries.

For all your fencing needs, speak to a local fencing service to help you get the job done.
