Hopkinsville Fencing Articles
Before the project,
We were replacing the entire perimeter of the house with the exception of one side that belonged to a neighbor. In addition, we were installing an additional entry gate as part of an enclosure on the side of the house as an add-on to the gate in the front of the house. This enclosure can be accessed from a sliding master bedroom door. The crew tore away at the decking that was there before and created a flawless replacement.
The big difference we added was an electrically controlled sliding gate to secure a carport that faced the
Keep in mind that a project like this requires coordination between his team of workers, the ordering and delivery of materials to your location, weather issues that might come up and the automatic gate company. The fact that it all came together so seamlessly is a testament to
Before project – Delivery of materials (wood, posts, fasteners, concrete, etc.) to your location. It helps having a driveway or place to keep these items but you can work with
Day one – demolition of old fencing and cutting down of old posts. If time permits, new posts are set.
Day two – final posts are set and framing begins with the horizontal runners fastened to the posts which are cut down to the target height (8ft in our case). If time permits, vertical panel installation begins.
Day three (or longer, as needed) – Panels completed, entry gates constructed. Sliding gate hardware and panels complete so that the gate is manually operational until the arrival of the motor equipment. For us this took an extra day because of the holiday weekend. The rest of the installed vertical panels are cut down to the right height and the trim and cap installed all around.
We chose to pay a bit extra to have the trim and cap put on top of the fence for a more finished look and to create more stability in the structure. We also added the pre-treated and stained cedar to buy us quite a few maintenance free years. Everything from the wood to the nails is
I have to give props to his team also.
This fence will last for many years to come and it has upgraded the look of the house already. We are getting compliments from neighbors as well as requests for

Most salesmen have there own cell phone that you can call directly.
Or you can call the owner. I found it kind of strange that I couldn't call either of them directly.
Every contractor that I ever had do work on my house gave me there direct phone number.
I even had to go to the sight in person because I was so tired of being told by the receptionist that he (

My front fence looks nice, but the guys they had install it were very unprofessional.
I will never use this company again .
Enclosed a swimming pool and mechanical utilities. Final product looks very nice and does function as we need. A few delays along the way, but nothing serious. One crew member a bit awkward with complaints about having to work so hard. Crew chief on the job easy to work with and very positive attitude. Minor mud mess but nothing out of the ordinary. Uncovered cable wires and weed barriers never reburied -- need to do it myself -- somewhat of a disappointment and hassle. My wife worked this project. I got the distinct impression she was being slightly up-charged possibly due to location. This is my estimate and I welcome
For example (I will give this example based upon six foot fence sections):
- Cost to us for a 6' section of fence installed was approx $162 (6 * $27/ft final charged price).
- Retail cost of material is approx $70 (via a google
- If one were to guess it took 15 minutes to install a 6' section, and to guess actual labor cost to
- Therefore the gross margin per 6' section with labor was approx $82. ($162 - ($70 + $10) = $82).
- An $82 gross margin is approx a margin of 51%.
- An average gross margin would be approx 21% (according to iLumen Financial Benchmarking).
- Consequently a possible up charge to my wife around $50 per 6 foot installed section, ((51% - 21%) * 162).
- We had 187' installed or about 31 six foot sections installed so the possible up charge to my wife was approx $1550, (31 * $50).
Even if my estimate of costs and margins above is incorrect by 30%, then the up charge to my wife for just the Aluminum Fence would still be around $1000, so as I said, it appears they did up charge my wife for this job.
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
