"I chose not to use
, which built the fence for my home's previous owner in 2005. The primary reason was that the price seemed far too high.
The company did not give me a "time and materials" bid but simply an all-in number to do the job, which the bid described as "cut[
] off 4-hinges and reweld[
] new ball bearing [hinges], install 3-ind cane bolt, install 1-post cap, grease up all hinges on both gates, and adjust as necessary." The price? $1520 plus tax.
When I told them the price was too high and that I had expected detail, I was told that the
cane bolts were $122 each, so the hinges and the cap would be $1,153 plus tax.
Heavy-duty hinges of the type they proposed can be found on-line for less than $5 each, but let's give them the benefit of the doubt and say they charge $10 each. That's $40 for the hinges. Add another $10 for the post cap, and we're at $50. That leaves $1,103 for labor. Even if it took an hour per hinge to cut off each hinge with a grinder, then weld a new one in place, that would be four hours, which would mean an hourly labor rate of $275. I could not accept that bid as reasonable for the work involved, so didn't have them do the work.

"It went excellently; I'm quite pleased.
Overall, between November and the end of March,
installed about 300 linear feet of very nice 6-foot tall iron fence, along with 5 single-gates and a double-gate. It does a very nice job of keeping out the deer (and bears).

"We had contacted
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
Gate due to Angie's List recommendation. In the initial contact, we had expressed that the outside wires had been cut from gardening in the yard and needed a new line.
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
came out and gave an estimate of $200. He didn't have the proper supplies to complete job and came back the next day. After the job was completed, he charges us $275. I didn't dispute the charge, even though he left his trash and cigarette butts throughout my yard.
The next day, my remote in my car was not functioning properly. I had to get up really close to the gate, whereas before
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
fixed it, my remote was working great. Our gate would work sometimes through the connection from the house. After a couple of weeks, I called to get
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
back out thinking that this was at least a 30 day warranty. I immediately got push back and was told that I had an old unit and that I needed to get a new unit. I explained that our remotes from cars and handheld were working great until
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
repaired it. Again, I was surprised at the resistant.
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
came back out, did a few adjustments and said if this doesn't work, then we really needed a new unit. Again, the gate was not working properly.
So we took it upon ourselves to fix it. We sealed the wire where
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
had connected outside since he had left it exposed and also found that the antenna on the gate had been bent (that is why the remotes weren't working right). The gate is working fine now.
Needless to say, I will NEVER use
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
and will tell everybody I know what had happened.

"When we started the process they estimated a 2 to 3 week wait for the work to be done, three days later they were setting posts and the next day the fence was up and done. Excellent work.

was reccomended by a lady that works for my insurance agent and it turns out we were lucky to find him. We had three different high wind storms which snapped 4x4 fence posts on our backyard privacy fence. Not good with dogs and little ones in an area where bears and cats are regular cruisers in the neighborhood. Upon calling
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
he had me send digital pics of the damage and he gave me a qoute within an hour. His response time was literally as soon as the weather permitted him to work in each case. He replaced what had been sub-standard strength cedar post with
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
Fir posts giving us back our yard security ASAP. Great to work with and nice folks.

"The company was great to deal with. We used their fence parts to construct an out door shower. As the contractor realized the different parts required as the job progressed we keep adding accessory orders. The staff was a pleasure and very accommodating. The product is fairly priced, quality vinyl, well constructed and easy to work with. I highly recommend the company and the product"

"The project was to be completed June 12. The materials were to be delivered with the second payment. So far they have 26,000 if out money and we have a ripped up deck .. And one side of yard fence done. There was a problem with the material that was delivered to be put down on the deck and this did cause a delay .. HOWEVER THERE WAS NO REASON THE FENCE MATERIAL IS NOT HERE AND THE FENCE IS NOT DONE.. All I get is one excuse after another. We only ever saw about 30 boards for the deck and although the azek rep has offered to step in and get the material .. This contractor has not responded to the request and we had to resort to hiring an attorney . Also the deck was left unsecured and unsafe and we had an accident that left us with 4 hours in the ER .and still dealing with possible complications . Overall a horrible experience .. It is now

14.. After the June 12 deadline passed .. We were promised the fence by June 27 and the deck by
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
4!! These dates have come and gone also.. Now we are told there were projects taken on before us that need to be completed .. Interesting though when the fence was started June 23 we were told they finished up and now could concentrate on us .. However they ran out of material to finish !! It's been crazy!!

and his team were excellent. The gate quality is wonderufl and the service was great. We had a slight miscommunication as to scheduling, but
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
was extremely professional about it and made up for it by throwing in a few extras and upgrading my gate model at a discount. I would definitley reccommend the

Company.

"We purchased a home with a 1 year old Fence built
by
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked

Builders with 5 year transferable warranty, which was stated to us by
both the seller
and also by Bill, owner of
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
, and on
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
's website. However, Bill did
not honor his word and would not restore the fence to working order.
Bill's communication to us was done verbally with, unfortunately, no
documentation provided to us or the previous owner.
Bill stopped by our
place when we were outside, introduced himself, and said that he also
built barns, if we were interested. We scheduled a time to review his
barns and pricing shortly after. When he came over and saw the fence he
built, he claimed he didn't want his work to look as bad as it did
because it would hurt his reputation. Bill stated that he would fix the
fence boards that were falling off and replace the warped gate that no
longer shut. He claimed the reason why the fence was in bad shape was
because he built it in the hottest of days in the summer. We stated that
we planned to stain the fence ASAP and Bill told us to wait until he
fixed the fence before it was stained. Bill told us that someone would
be out within a week to perform the repairs.
After Bill called us to canceled once and never showed multiple times later, he realized we were not going to buy
a barn from him (because of multiple delays to fix fence and that it felt fishy), he
wouldn't honor his warranty on the Fence. There were tens of missed
appointments and non-commitments stringing us along. After 8 months, someone came
out once doing the absolute minimal, only fixing a small portion of the
fence, ignoring our request to be notified before showing up with a
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
phone call, text or scheduled time. Because he would not give a
date and or time and just showed up when we were not home, we were
notified by our panicking neighbors about a man in their yard around
their
kids and dog. When we returned home, we noticed that the gate was
partially fixed, not redone as we were lead to believe, some boards that
were nailed back but were now splitting, and not all boards were fixed.
We have been kind and
courteous
but after a year + of being strung along with
Jackson Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
twisting his own words
and events around without resolve, we felt we needed to post our
experience.
In the end we feel this business does not honor their word. Please do not have the same thing happen to you and make
sure everything is in writing. He has lost our trust and we would never do business with a company like this in the future!
