I contacted
Sweetwater Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
as well as a few other fence companies. I just needed a few wooden fence posts replaced on my stockade fence because they rotted away at ground level. They provided the best price so I went with them. They showed up right as promised and did the job excellently. I am very satisfied!

I contacted Fence Makeover and spoke with
Sweetwater Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
. She was very helpful and responsive and
Sweetwater Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
the owner came to provide estimate the next day.
Sweetwater Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
was prompt and pleasant. The estimate was better than some of the others that I had seen and was certainly better than full replacement of the fence. I specifically asked how the resetting of the posts would be done and was assured that they would be dug out and "a lot of concrete" would be added to maintain the position of the posts. He stated that the fence is 6 ft. and the posts are 8 feet with 2 feet buried into the ground, which is standard. On the day of service, a crew started cleaning at 7am, a second crew arrived to do the resetting of posts and repairs and a 3rd crew arrived to do the staining. They worked until around 8pm. I was not able to inspect the work that evening as it was dusk. The following day, I went to the

to inspect. The stain looked fine and the posts were sturdy and firm when shook, except for one. I saw some Quickcrete powder residue on

pavement but did not see evidence of new concrete at the base of any of the posts. So, I dug at the bases of two of the posts, 6" and 13" before I hit concrete which did not appear to be fresh. Per my research prior to contracting, concrete should fill the holes from below the bottom of the post and be about 3 to 4" below surface, I did not wish to dig each post so I called
Sweetwater Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
and let him know that I was concerned that there might not enough concrete. He was initially defensive and kept assuring me that it was done properly, though he was not on the job site that day. He did agree to come the next day to see for himself and arrived at 7am. He maintained that the posts were sturdy and done properly but did dig around all of them and there were only a few that there was evidence of concrete. He then said that my posts were buried 3ft and that the developer had used the 10ft post and sawed off 1 ft. I found it very difficult to believe that a subdivision developer would do that! We did not dig it up to prove it; as he continued to maintain that work was done properly but allowed that he would add the concrete if I wanted it done (they did that). There was also a fastener that was not repaired but I did not even bring this to his attention. I will do it myself or have handyman correct it.
The fence does look great and hopefully it will remain upright for a few more years. This job was not done the way it was represented to me. Even though additional concrete was added, it is not a consistent column, so not sure how that will affect function long term. I recognize that in our N. Texas clay soil even concrete is not a guarantee of longevity. As far as I know there are no specific building codes so you are on your own to determine what is proper. I would advise that before hiring for repairs to your fence that you review some videos of the correct way for the fence posts to be set so that you know what you are looking at when the work is inspected upon completion. Get the details in writing! I also spoke with a home inspector about the procedure for setting fence posts. Also, take photos! Contractors frequently assume the homeowners don't know anything so do your homework and the follow through!.

They were prompt in getting my quote scheduled and once we accepted the proposal, the work seemed to start within an appropriate time frame. The guys were here promptly on the morning they said they would be and even finished the next day in the rain! Our new fence looks great.

We went with another provider because their quote was almost double the cost of the provider we went with. They had came onsite to do a measurement then took 2 days to send a proposal when other providers gave a quote on site or less than 24 hours.

and his assistant came and installed two handrails on steps leading to my side door and to back door. He brought his equipment and materials and made the handrail on site. It took about 4 hours and now the steps are safe with something to hold on to! I especially appreciated a little curved flourish he added to the end -- it not only adds a little character to the handrails but are also functional for holding onto the vertical part of the flourish. He also painted them in dark brown to match the window frames.

The installation of the fence was completed in a timely manner, approximately 4 days. The fence looks beautiful and brings out our backyard and house. The workers were very professional, informative, knowledgable and eager to please. The owner

The installation went great. The crew of three started at 7:30am (even earlier than the 8:00am promised start) and got to work removing old fencing and digging holes.

showed up a bit later to finalize the exact locations of corners and gates. Once the specifics were agreed upon he left the crew to get to work (Fredy was in charge). Those three guys worked for 10 straight hours through pouring rain and oppressive heat. My hats off to them. A couple of days later, once the yard had dried up, Fredy came back, cleaned up the yard, and removed the old fencing materials.
Overall, we're very pleased with

, the crew, and our beautiful fence. My only gripe would be that, when not dealing directly with

, office response time is slow and muddled. I understand they're very busy and usually on a job site but an improved admin side would go a long way with prospective clients.

They cut out my back lawn, hauled it away and brought in a tractor and tilled the whole thing up. A surprising amount of bricks, rocks and roots under that lawn. They took them all out, cleaned up nicely and hauled it all away. I am thrilled with their work, their communication and their timeliness. It went great!
