provided me with a quote for $1452.53 for a 6' tall fence (which I signed and returned on May 28), collected my 50% down payment ($726.27)," and scheduled fence installation for Friday, June 27. So far, so good. On installation day, workers arrived, tore down the existing fence, and began installing a 4' fence. When my husband brought the height error to their attention, they confirmed with
(sales rep who did the estimate) that it should be 6', returned to the shop and brought back materials for the 6' fence. Shortly thereafter, the installers received a phone call from
, the owner of the business, to stop work, pack up and leave the site. When I got in contact with the office, they explained that they couldn't find a contract for $1452.53 in their system, and the project would cost more $1600 - a $200 increase. If we wanted them to continue work, we needed to pay their increased price. Despite repeated requests to speak with
, the only person who would talk with me was the office administrator,
. On Friday, Monday and Tuesday, I asked that they 1) honor the existing contract or 2) refund the 50% down payment so we could hire a different company. On Monday,
accused me of altering the numbers in their contract from $1600+ to $1452.53. Finally,
informed me that they cannot complete the job for the $1452.53, and also refuse to refund my full down payment, stating that I am responsible for the costs of labor to tear down the existing fence, so they will refund the down payment less costs of labor. Unfortunately, contract law states that because they called off the work, they're responsible for all costs. In addition, because
called his crew off the site after they had demolished our old fence, we were left without any fence at all, so my husband and I had to purchase and install temporary fencing, as well as haul away the materials from the old fence. Our credit card company is disputing the $726.27 charge. All I want is my deposit back so I can hire another company to do the job. Ironically, other companies I've talked to have been shocked, stating
is a "large, reputable company." I wish I'd been able to work with them when they lived up to that reputation.

was responsive and easy to work with. He came out to give us a quote promptly. He was the lowest bid, but also seemed most knowledgeable." The staff were punctual and respectful. The job was completed on the date we set within the timeline
gave. I'm still waiting on the final bill, so I can't say yet how accurate the proposal was. The fence looks very nice and you can tell that
takes pride in quality craftsmanship. It was a good experience working with
. I would recommend them to friends, and if I have any other fence installation needs in the future, I will definitely go back to them.

#AskAngie: Tips for Dealing with Flaky Contractors

Dear Angie: I gave a fencing contractor a $1,300 deposit on a $2,600 job. Months after we signed a contract, no work has been done. What should I do?


Fences provide practical and aesthetic value, but a badly conceived fence can be an eyesore and a source of conflict with neighbors. With wooden privacy fences, vinyl fences and others, it can be difficult to pick the best fencing option for your home. Consider these tips before making this investment in your home.

Homeowners have many options for fences to block of their yards. But before you choose the fencing material consider all of the options for your yard.

When preparing to fence your yard, make an informed decision. These four tips can help you pick the best type of fence for your yard, family and lifestyle.

Angie's Answers


I would say depends on several things:

1) what % of the job is $400 ?

2) how good is the warranty - against all types of failure, or what - cedar fences usually fail in one of two ways - tornado/hurricane/waves/flood/car collision takes them out, or the posts (if not treated timber) rot out. The fence itself will change color and get fuzzy as it weathers, but should last 15-20 years in most areas.

3) generally, a fence is not something you would pay for a warranty on - if properly put up and with concreted-in copper chromate or copper napthalate treated posts (the green preservative) should last a long time and not need warranty work basically till the fasteners fail or the fence slat boards split too badly.

4) if I was going to spend extra money on a wood fence, it would be for a good quality penetrating sealer, not steel posts.

Fencing reviews in Madison


Before building my fence, I did a lot of research and decided to go with a 6 foot cedar
Madison Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
privacy fence. I grew up with a 4 foot white
Madison Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
fence with 4x4 posts, and the posts were always rotting and needing to be replaced. So I knew that I wanted to use steel posts. I really liked the Master Halco Postmaster fence posts, and
Madison Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
was the best place to get them. Menards and Home Depot can special order them, but when you factor in the cost of the concrete, the cost of renting the auger to drill the holes, and most of all - the time - we added it up and it ended up being only $400 more expensive to have
Madison Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
install the posts. Plus if you have a company install something permanently, you don't have to pay sales tax, as it is considered "real" property. So they charged $47.50 per Postmaster Post and then $40 each for installing.
So they showed up around 8 am, and I talked with the two guys, who answered all my questions. They started pneumatically driving in the posts (it's loud!), and it took them about 2 hours to do the 27 posts (about 200 linear feet). Then they used post hole diggers to dig the gate posts and that took about an hour for them to dig and set those in concrete.
Since I am going to be building the fence myself, they were giving me all sorts of great tips and explanations. I couldn't believe that it only took them 3 hours to do all the work.
Side note: it was going to cost $5,786 if I wanted them to install the entire fence, and not just the posts. But the lumber only cost me about $1200, so I figured I could save almost 2000 buy doing it myself. However, if I didn't want to or couldn't do it myself, I do think that price of 5,786 is reasonable.
- James E.

It went well, there was an initial snag with posts and buried power lines, however this was quickly sorted out and the installers used concrete and shallower holes in that area. This did raise the price slightly, but not significantly. The fence is holding up well 2 years later.
- Dirk N.

I contacted provider to get an estimate for a privacy fence for my yard. I was contacted quickly and an appointment was set up for the following week. The day of the appointment I received a call at work that
Madison Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
was not able to make the appointment and wanted to reschedule. We rescheduled for the following week and no one ever showed up. I called the office prior to closing and left a message asking if anyone was coming. I never received any contact after that. Provider had my cell number, my work number and could have messaged me back via Angie's List. I consider no contact from provider to be unprofessional and therefore went with another fencing company. My sister met with

2 weeks prior for an estimate for a privacy fence for her yard and after my experience will not be using Ideal to put in their fence either.
- Cassandra L.

Very well, but they had to take out a lot more shrubs and trees than was estimated in order to get the fence in. They cleaned up reasonably well although later I found some metal pieces in the brush. It looks great and the workers were very nice and professional.

, the owner and his son,
Madison Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
were both great to work with.
- Bonnie P.

They came and did it while I was at work. Completed the job in one day, cleaned up after themselves, I got exactly what I wanted. I had a issue with one corner of my fence due to a neighbors fence opening up into mine on an angle, This company was the only one that listened to me and gave me the best solution to utilize the most I could of my yard. I like the fence, my dog likes the fence and it was also close to the least expensive bid (one cheaper but he did not even come to the house to do an estimate so I was not confident it would have been that low) We had over 8 estimates before we called
Madison Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
due to seeing the high rating on Angie's list. Glad we did call because they were great. Also they were able to do the job quickly, where other companies wanted to wait a long time. It also rained the day they installed and they didn't tear up the yard or leave any mess at all. (was very wet in the yard when they came)
- Jamie V.

It went smoothly and efficiently! They came promptly when they said they would and worked quickly and were very neat. They cleaned up all the obstructed areas for the fence as well which was nice because we did not have to worry about it. After the project we noticed one of the gates was slightly too high and they immediately came and fixed the problem for us. Definitely a stellar company with excellent service! I highly recommend them. And their price was the best out of the other competition in

was absolutely great! I had called a few other companies and was frustrated by their lack of response, poor customer service, and high prices. We needed two gates to enclose the yard on our newly purchased home for our dog. Very responsive and professional,

worked with me to ensure he understood what we wanted and was communicative with usthroughout the entire process. The gates were installed on the date promised, they were perfect, and the price was very fair. I highly recommend

to any friends and neighbors who inquire about fencing. We will definitely hire

again when our existing fence needs to be replaced.
- Jamie G.

We contacted
Madison Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
about fencing in our back yard including a gate. They responded to email fairly quickly and we set up an appointment. We had specific ideas about our goals and the form we wanted but we were less specific about the structure. We wanted a fence to keep the dog in/other animals out but not block out light. When the planner came on side, we had to discuss it for a while before we got on the same page but he did explain the options. We described our ideal 3 rail design and where we wanted the panels and the gate. We liked what we heard about how they build with cedar and how long it can last when protected. We decided on the cedar facing on the posts and the cedar rails since we could attach trellises and other gardening features to it. We decided that
Madison Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
would build the fence structure and we would later apply the stain/protector product and attach welded wire to the outside.
Action gave us a couple of options for how we would do the posts and we decided on the simpler option with 1x6 panels on each side of the posts. This worked out very well visually and was cheaper than wrapped posts. The hard part in all of this was making sure that what we were describing was being understood and conveyed to the workers. We would have liked to see more of a design from the side view rather than just the overhead. It was hard to read and understand the materials list to verify that it was what we wanted. When the time came, the stuff that was worked out with no issues and no increases in cost. The workers had the right idea and they executed it well. They also left us some of the excess material to work with. Overall it worked out and we are happy with the result.
