"
was easily the lowest price of the 4 bids I got. He was very easy to speak with and discuss what we wanted to have done. Since we were trying" to keep costs as low as possible, he allowed me to do some of the work myself in between there work. His crew was nice and would explain what they were doing. They were very careful to keep everything tarped off and clean as possible. The best thing was
was available by text after I would get off work late if I had questions, he would take care of any issues soon after our discussions. The work was done on time and as scheduled. There were some hiccups along the way as with any big project, but he kept be up to date with changes and everything was done to our liking. The only thing that was not done correctly was the tile flooring was supposed to go in on a diagonal to the door not perpendicular, it wasn't a big deal and he made up for it by doing a few extra things at no cost; he did offer to pull it up and redo it but we declined. Several months after some of the tile grout started to Chip and I let him know, he sent his tile guy who laid the floor out to look at it and it was determined that little bit of flex in the plywood flooring caused the grout cracking, but the tile was still laminated to the floor. The
solution was to use the color match latex caulk grout that will flex; that fixed the problem and didn't require ripping up the floor and all the work that entails. Overall very happy with how our bathrooms turned out., (this being written almost a year later)

"How did it go... well, as a first time home-owner, and never having to make these kind of decisions, it was an adventure! Using Angies List and a couple others," I put together a list of the top recommended business for my area and called to make arrangements for some estimates. 3 of the 4 business were able to come out within a couple days of my calling.
was one of the 3. The owner of the business,
, came to my home and introduced himself with his business card and from there we were off talking about what I was looking for.
's personality made it easy for me, a first time home-owner making another big purchase, to talk to. He wasn't pushy, didn't force information on me, answered my questions, and definitely knew what he was talking about. I have an unusual back yard with an awkward hill and property line. I didn't know where the corners of my lots were, but I had the plat map!
said, "not a problem", went to his truck and grabbed his super-duper metal detector thingy (I can't remember what it was called). He walked over to where he thought the pin would be in my front corner of the lot and scanned the ground. Wouldn't you know it he was pretty much standing on top of it. AMAZING!! He found the remaining pins, took down some measurements, discussed the installation process, materials to be used, and how long it would take. He said that he would have an estimate to me by that night, and he was true to his word. Over the next couple days I received several other estimates from the remaining 3 companies.
had set the bar high for me. The three estimates were similar to Keystone Fences. However, not one of the other 3 business came close to his professionalism. There is something to be said about a business owner speaking to a potential client, listening and respecting they're thoughts, ideas, and opinions. It was mostly because of this, that my choice was to allow
to earn my business ... and the estimate was solid too, not the cheapest and certainly not the most.
's commitment to making sure I got the best was convincing, so I bought in. The day came to install the fence.
's workers showed up, introduced themselves, did a walk through with me, and then they were off an running. Before I knew it, all posts were cemented into the ground and the rails were going up. After lunch time, the fence slats were going on. after 5 hours of work, I had a complete fence!! WOOHOO. The quality of work was great. All the posts were plumb, the slats were nice and tight, the tops evenly followed the contour of the hill, the fence gate was squared, and had some heavy duty hardware for hinges and lock. I think its important to note that as the workers went through the process of installing, they made sure to clean up any spent building materials. There was no mess left after they had left my property Later in the day
stopped by to check the installation and to make sure that I was satisfied with my new fence. We walked it, checking the spacing and the top contour ensuring it was even, and everything was great. He pointed out things that I would never have thought of. Like, not to put the posts up against the home. This way when the wind blows those posts are not rubbing against the house. Who would have thought about that, not me! I couldn't tell
enough how satisfied I was with the process start to finish. As I had mentioned before, he made the process easy and left some hope that there are still good business people out in this world. It made handing that check over to him a heck of a lot easier knowing that he takes pride in his business and will stand behind it. So If you've made it this far, please do not hesitate to use
for your fence needs.
wants to earn your business for the right reasons. He will deliver on his word and he will personally make sure you get what you signed up for. Thank you
! Now to paint that fence ... ugh....

#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

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.

cedar fence
Fencing, Fencing & Driveway Gates

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.

wood fence for privacy
Fencing, Animal Fencing

Fence installation costs often varies on factors, such as material and quality. A highly rated fencing contractor can help explain options and prices.

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.

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.

Our home was built in the mid-1980s and has been updated with appliances and carpeting about 15 years ago. It was time to give it a makeover and we saved and planned it for years. We searched several contractors and designers and met with a few. We selected
Arcola Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
because he was very creative and, most important, confident in the work he proposed. We wanted someone to take our ideas and input and make it happen. We are more than happy with the result.
We started in

and the final project completed in November with a few odds and ends in December. Overall, we could not even imagine how great the results would be once completed. Every evening when we got home from work during the project we would admire the various improvements and progress throughout our home that

and his team executed.
Starting with the Kitchen. We took out a pantry and wall with the oven and microwave. We wanted to expand the opening to the den and this was the only way.
Arcola Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
suggested a microwave drawer. I had not even considered it and wasn't sure. We trusted
Arcola Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
and he was right. The microwave drawer is terrific. Nothing spills and it's so easy and out of the way.
With the loss of the pantry,
Arcola Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
showed us how he could open up the space under the stairway from the kitchen and we ended up with more storage space in this area with rolling carts and china boxes that were previously stored in the garage.Next, we had him build a breakfast nook in the kitchen with a bench. He added drawers there and with the new sliding doors and side window panels, it's beautiful and we can see the atrium with our plants and enjoy the light. He put crown moulding around the beams under the kitchen skylight and it's beautiful and updated.He created a built in space for the frig and it's gorgeous with crown moulding and shaker doors to match the new cabinets. There's storage for the trash and recycling that are in the cabinets and a special set of drawers for oils and large pots and pans that pull out from the corner lower cabinet. I could go on, but there are other spaces to share.
In the den, we had the fireplace completely remodeled. They ripped out the old brick, brought the wall down to the studs to make sure it was safe and put in some strapping to secure the chimney. Then

came up with the idea of floating glass shelves. I wasn't sure, but I was willing to take a risk. Wow, it's a showcase. Our neighbors and friends can't get over how nice and luxurious it is. The floors in the kitchen, pantry and den are the wood porcelain floor tiles. They are amazing.

takes you to his "special place" to select all the finishes for counter tops, flooring, everything! He has contacts at locations where we received very good pricing and service on all of our appliances and fixtures.
I wanted to replace the stair railing, but wasn't sure we could afford it.

brought the custom builder in and handled all the specs. he gave us a variety of choices. We now have the stair rail that makes our home so nice and just the way we like it. Again, another dream come true.
Upstairs in the Master Bath, we had one of those 1980s large oval spa tubs with a step. Let's put it this way, I hated it. We just shower and never takes baths. So,
Arcola Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
came up with the idea to change it to a large shower. Well, let me tell you - it's large. I was a bit embarrassed at first at how large it was turning out. But after it was done, I can't imagine it being any other size than what it is now. With the fixtures

suggested for the shower heads, towel holders and custom glass doors - we feel like we are in a resort. It's wonderful. He was able to put in fans (I don't know how and I don't care). I'm thrilled we have fans in our bathrooms now. We're are in the 21st century.

's team customized our master bath vanity with espresso cabinets, custom mirror medicine cabinets (mirrors on both sides of the medicine cabinet doors). Tiled the space and backsplash and new lighting and electrical in both the cabinets. It's crazy great! Gorgeous tile work on the floors and walls. New toilet fixtures. Lighting. All done to perfection!
The guest bathroom was redone differently. We took out a wall and opened it up between the bath tub/shower space and the vanity. New pre-fab vanity and mirrors that look terrific. The guest bedroom is where we splurged even more on cabinetry.
Arcola Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
had a custom-built 16 drawer cabinet built under the inset window. It holds so much. Just what we needed.
There were minor repairs to some bad wood on our deck, some areas in our garage and around the entry. His team replaced doors - every one of them throughout the home. It's amazing what new doors can do to your home value. He also loves electrical outlets. So he installed several in the kitchen and bathrooms. We thought it might be overkill, but we use them more than ever. He was right. The knobs and pulls in all the cabinets and drawers match.
The cabinetry is all custom throughout the house. His team are true artisans. I can't thank them enough and tell them how much I admire their skill.
I have to say,
Arcola Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
and everyone of his team members know what they are doing. They are the best I've seen. My dad was a building contractor, so I have an amazing point of reference. I can say without a doubt,

Unfortunately, we decided to go with a vinyl fence for more privacy, which they do not carry/install. However, this was our first choice for our fencing needs; reasonable price, would deal with the hassle of

A representative from the company quickly returned my request for a quote and came out to measure my property. He brought lots of photos and ideas, but did not rush or pressure me into a decision (he actually offered some cost-saving alternatives).
