Is it worth it to hire a pro to build a fence?

Answered

Assuming that the fence professional you hire is good, it is generally worth it to hire someone to install a fence for you. Pros have the tools and team to build a fence correctly, on budget and on time. The job can take several days, even for those with light construction experience. Pros can also help take care of any permits and zoning issues that your area may require. Finally, an experienced pro knows how to spot potential problems down the road, saving you money on expensive repairs.
