Advice on Dealing with Bad Contractor Behavior
The best way to avoid any issues is to thoroughly research
prospective contractors. Narrow your investigation to organizations that have
positive word of mouth along with Better Business Bureau reviews. Be sure
contractors are fully insured, licensed, and have documentation through your
city. Take time to contact references. If you do find yourself in an unsettling
situation with a person you have hired consider using the following tips:
Everything! Keep logs of conversations but try to do as much communicating via
email as possible thereby having a written record of all contact.
· Deal with
the Appropriate Individual. If the contractor is the problem, call the office.
· File a
Complaint with the States Attorney General. The attorney general will try to
mediate the problem between homeowner and contractor.
Shelter: Installing a privacy fence over any other type of perimeter barrier will provide your property with some shelter from the elements. The fence will act as a windbreaker to prevent the wind from affecting you, your plant life and your property. Depending on the positioning of the fence and of your home, this can also provide shade when it is required.
2. Protection: A privacy fence provides protection not only to help keep young children and animals within the boundary, but also to keep intruders and stray animals out. It will help your property to remain hidden from prying eyes and will reduce the temptation for children and animals to stray. Your property will benefit from having a clear indication of where the land separates from the neighboring property. 3. Noise: Where the dimensions and materials are sufficient, this type of fence can lessen the amount of noise that your yard suffers from beyond the fence. The presence of the fence and the thickness of the same will serve to dampen down noise so that it is not as intrusive as it would be with another type of fence or with no barrier at all.
