Poorly installed fences can be a nightmare to deal with when it comes to your insurer.
It’s not always clear who needs to pay in the event of poor workmanship, and whether you’ll still be covered by your insurance if your fence was installed incorrectly.
You can avoid these hassles altogether by trusting the experienced team at Jim’s Fencing.

Yes, fence damage generally falls under the umbrella of your homeowner’s insurance.
It depends on your insurer and individual insurance policy, so always check the details, but most consider fences to be permanent fixtures – like pools, sheds and solar panels.
Not all insurers will cover fence damage, though, and it always depends on the circumstances.
Your fence will usually be covered by insurance in the event of things like storm and flood damage.

Unfortunately, with a busy schedule, it’s easy for things like pests and mould to go unnoticed.
That’s why the Jim’s Fencing team recommends inspecting your fence regularly, and if you spot any issues, get in touch with us immediately. A quick call and one of our experts will soon be on site to take a look.
Maintaining your fence is also crucial, and helps ensure your fence is still covered under your insurance policy.
