Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
B.08/22/2014Edit AVOID! I would find someone else for your fencing needs. I was very disappointed when the job was not completed. The fence they installed was not painted completely. I requested on April 20 that they address the unpainted surfaces, and they promptly said they would take care of it. Nothing happened. I made the request again on June 8. They responded: "We will be there in the next few days to stain the fence. " It is now August 23 and still no follow up. I have given up. We gave these people a few referrals, and you would think they would appreciate that and see the job is done right. Sadly this is not the case.

was very communicative and very responsive to communications. They worked with me and my dog to ensure that my dog would not be able to escape from the new fence.

After some initial scheduling delays, Ed came with his assist to replace the previous latch, installed years ago by him (it was not closing and latching properly) and to install a new gate on the north side of the house. I was glad to be home during the work because the gate was smaller than I expected (my fault for not realizing this was only a 42"). When I discussed my error with Ed and told him I wanted a gate the same size as the south gate, he was happy to put the old gate back up temporarily in order to make a 48" gate. He returned on Friday with the 48" gate and installed it promptly while removing the old wooden fence and cleaning up the area. And, to compensate for the scheduling difficulties, Ed gave me a discount off the initial quote for my inconvenience, now that is customer service! Thanks Ed!

Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
had a great experience with
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
. They returned my initial call quickly and
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
came out to do the estimate 2 days later. Their price was very fair. They showed up right on time and had the work done as promised. I am very pleased with the professional job they performed. I will gladly recommend them and use them in the future.

I specifically asked in my original email if they did vinyl
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
fences and gave approximate measurements. They responded saying that they did and set an appointment to come out and measure. While here the associate talked about additional options and somewhat dissuaded us from vinyl. He agreed to email a quote and some different options including vinyl and wood styles.
After 2 weeks I emailed them becasue I had not received the quote and wanted to make sure they had the correct email address. A week later they sent a quote that said vinyl in the description but the numbers we all in the column for a wood fence. Which is it? I emailed back to give one more
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
and asked for clarification. I also requested the various idea options that the man who can to the house was talking about. That was over a week ago and no response.
I'm quite disappointed in the lack of responsiveness and professionalism. Even if they were the cheapest I would not do business with them in the future. Too bad since the small
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
fence project was a test for the larger replacement of the entire 6' property fence.

Someone from
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
came out to give me an estimate during the week of 8/4/14 and said they would email me an estimate in a few days from when they left. I never got an email, phone call, or an estimate. I had already been provided with 3 estimates from other companies I found on Angie's list and they all gave me the estimate on the spot. I'm not wasting my time trying to find out why, it just didn't happen. I would get a few other estimates if you decide to try and use these guys.
- Travis A.

When I first contacted
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
I received a call back immediately to set up a time for our free estimate.
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
showed up within a few days and was extremely friendly and pleasant. He seemed to be a good hearted, honest, hardworking, southern man. We are from
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
and southern hospitality is still new to us- so when we first met him we felt extremely comfortable with him because of his "southern charm". We were not ready to do our fence for a few weeks as we were pending
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
approval. Once we received the
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
approval we contact
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
right away, he came the next day to measure, sign our contract, and get his $2000 downpayment (check was cashed immediately), and he began the fence promptly the following week,.We promptly paid him his second installment of $2000 the first day he started working. Two days into the fence being put up my fiancé and i had to travel for work- we were not home when the fence was completed (3-4 days later). My father was house sitting and as a courtesy he paid
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
the remaining $2000 balance so he would not have to wait to pay his men until we returned home for the completed job.
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
told my father to check with us to see if we wanted the gates flushed or set back slightly-he said when we came back to let him know (they were set back slightly and look AWFUL!), he was also supposed to come back and install supports for the drive gate which he never did and it constantly flies open. The drive gate was constructed poorly due to cracks in wood and poor workmanship- there is no way this gate is going to last more than a year! When my fiancé came home he inspected the rest of the fence and found some issues- he contacted
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
seemed more than happy to come back and fix the issues we had found. This was only a week after the fence was completed (second week of
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
). He was supposed to be back the following week and we are now into almost the end of August and we still have not seen
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
. I gave him two weeks before initial calling him to see when he would be coming as we hadn't heard from him when he never showed the first time. I have called him once a week since then and every time i call he says "ill be out to you sometime this weekend" and the weekend comes and
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
NEVER shows. Today he promised he would be out to fix our fence, only to find out via text he would only be fixing the way the gates were set. He replied rudely in a text to me that he would NOT BE FIXING ANYTHING ELSE- even though he had already promised to. He was supposed to be here this morning and when morning went we texted him to see when he would be coming and he stated "he was busy in another job, if it come it then maybe tomorrow but no later". We wasted our entire saturday morning waiting for him to show up! So we called him to figure out what was going on and the phone call ended with him stating our last payment states we are happy with the work completed and NEVER TO CALL HIM AGAIN!! Again we were out of town when the fence was done- out of the goodness of our hearts we trusted the work was done and paid him when he asked to be paid. My dad was house sitting- he does not own the home- and he was not the one the contract was drafted with! The issues we have found with the fence are growing and it has only been one month! Already our posts are leaning, some of the posts aren't even set in cement. He linked onto our neighbors fence and it looks TERRIBLE! He didn't use a post to join the fences, just some
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
mouse job to somehow keep them linked. The list goes on. We are first time homeowners, and just had a baby so spending $6000 on a fence is a lot of money and for the labor that was completed its ATROCIOUS- considering the majority of that $6000 paid for labor, materials were probably under $2500. We NEVER EVEN RECEIVED AN INVOICE! Below is a list of the major issues with the fence:
Gates are not flush with the rest of the fence and have cracked and splitting wood where the hinges were installed.
Several posts and portions of the fence have nails popping through.
Several posts missing: i.e. no post connecting the fence to the neighbor’s fence. He just wedged two pieces of wood into their fence
By the neighbors connection the back fence sits 5 inches or above the ground per our
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
we are to have the fence 4" off the ground to allow water to pass though an easement
Inconsistent spacing between posts- when asked about the distance being greater than 8 feet he said there wouldn’t be any issue with it. When I asked for a guarantee that the fence would last like this, he said he could not give me a guarantee.
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
measured out the fence line according to our plot plan, our homeowners association states the angle is off on one side and we have lost some of our land, when i asked
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
to check this he stated he would not move the fence even if it was off (as a professional who does fences daily he should know how to measure out a property line!
Loose and falling pieces of wood throughout the fence are present due to nails not going into the lateral supports.
Top of the fence cut poorly attempted to be
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
board with a "border board"
Quality of the wood is poor
Fence is not straight in the back, it almost "waves" out in some parts. You can look down straight and see SEVERAL posts out of line.

I live in an area that does not require yards to be fenced, even if they have a pool. However, my homeowners cancelled because I did not have a fence. I called several providers, all highly rated from Angie's list. One didn't call back, one called back with a VERY high estimate, never came to see my yard but estimated from a survey.
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
asked for paperwork, made an appointment, and came days before the original appointment! He knew I was in a situation, and responded quickly and professionally.
I was kept informed of every step of the process. He was kind, courteous, and every man in my yard extremely professional.
I hope I do not need a fence soon, but if I did I would not need to call any other providers...
Johnston City Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
would be my choice.
I want to say....I am very hard to please. For me to write a glowing recommendation like this is a sign that this man is way beyone Excellent. He embodies what customer service should be!
