"Initial discussion of the job included the fact that the fence had to be installed straight (not undulate with the topography), since the fence sections were rigid." Instructions from representative to the foreman were changed from "straight" to "level". The terrain is not quite level, but slopes slightly. Halfway through installation, the crew realized that "level" wouldn't work, as the underground supports were sticking increasing too far out of the ground. At a gate, an unsightly "step down" was created to compensate. I have asked them to redo a portion of the installation, and offered to pay them for the work. In May of this year (2015), I was told that their current work schedule reached out to mid-
. Now, after 4 1/2 months of silence, I have been notified that they are not interested in fixing their error, even as a paid job. I am very disappointed that the fence will not be fixed. I am thoroughly disgusted at the lack of communication and professionalism. I would not recommend
Fence under any circumstance.

"The owner was very responsive and a crew came out the same day I called. The work was completed on time and on budget.

Angie's Answers


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.

Driveway Gate Installation reviews in Mechanicsville


The crew were prompt, professional, courteous, and thorough. They examined the gate and determined the cause of the gate failure and had it repaired promptly. They then tested the gate to make sure it was functioning correctly. I was very impressed by the services and the reasonable charge for the service call.

came over to check the gate, he clearly and patiently explained the various functions. This included showing us how the gate was tied to one of our phone lines. He also tested and then had us practice using the various gate functions.

explained the type of gate we had (we are new owners of the house), how to maintain the gate and exactly how to use each function.
After approximately 45 minutes, we were done and I asked him how much I owed him. He replied, "Nothing, we just hope to have your business in the future."

They replaced the chain on my gate. It took a little longer than I expected and the gate derailed and I called them again. They had to come out and change the circuit board and stopper. I didn't have a very good experience, and it ended up costing a lot of money. They did take longer to diagnose the issue to begin with, and they had to send a couple of different people. One of the workers and I had issues communicating. The gate was eventually fixed, and continues to work fine now.
- Abhishek S.

After seeing craigslist ads from this company and a good review on Angie's list I reached out first submitting a form on companies website following up immediately with a phone call which went to voicemail. After a week of no response I followed up with a second phone call which went to voicemail.
No response. Period.
If the company is too busy to take on work I would understand and accept that but silence isn't a positive.
- John S.

Everything looked so much better when they were done that we didn't even notice the issues. After some time, we noticed the pickets were bowing, the horizontal wood rails were not horizontal, and the placing of the pickets on the rails created a very jagged top line. Many of the pickets were not plumb. My neighbor had to have a few of the metal posts pulled out to get a piece of equipment in her backyard and the amount of concrete used was pitiful. Lots of cutting corners and an overall lousy job. My neighbor had a couple other fence companies out to inspect the job and recommend a fix and one of them said it should be a complete tear down and rebuild. To his credit (after a lawsuit was threatened),
Mechanicsville Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
did come out and make some fixes... however more fixes are needed and
Mechanicsville Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
has said that was all he was going to do. He also removed the "JMFences" name plate from the fence - I guess he doesn't want anyone seeing what a terrible job he did. Oh, he also said he would come back and stain the entire fence for free because of all the trouble... but he has since said he will not do that either. Do yourself a huge favor and choose another fencing company.
- Kevin J.

See above. Put up a fence : measured, dug holes, mesured fence to their specs, cemented posts in, put gates on. Covered up cement area when done. It looked great like they were never there. No trash left behind, polite.

The contract was never completed.
Mechanicsville Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
took my money and never completed the job and what little was completed was of poor quality and needs to be redone. On 02/18/15 I wired
Mechanicsville Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
K. the amount of $6,500.00 for Materials and transportation (first big clue and mistake that should have never been done).
Mechanicsville Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
only brought one employee with him (which should have been a clue for this size of a job) and started work on 02/25/15. The cedar material brought was poor quality (many large holes, split and cracked, shredded). I was also informed that I would not be getting a dogeared fence because he did not want to cut the material and instead I would be getting trim on the top and bottom of the fence. On 03/04/15

requested an additional amount of $1,500.00 from me for more materials. I transferred the amount of $1,500.00 to
Mechanicsville Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
K. on 03/05/15 by Chase QuickPay. The work was going very slow and some of that is due to rainy weather, which is forgivable and understandable, but mostly it was due to poor work ethic and time management.

would never show up before 10am-11am and would leave early often. On 03/15/15

requested more money in the amount of $900.00 for more materials again. On 03/16/15 I transferred the amount of $900 to
Mechanicsville Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
K. by Chase QuickPay. At this point, very little had been done. The little work that had been completed was very poor quality and not completely functional. I had a terrible feeling about this, but I had already given him money, so I was just hoping for a fence to keep my dogs on the property. The metal framed gates were not welded well and were done poorly. I currently have a 2x4 holding the gate shut because of his measured wrong and never fixed. He also decided to make this gate 12' instead of 10' (probably because if his "measurements"). On 03/19/15
Mechanicsville Driveway Gate Installers Provider Name Locked
requested additional money for concrete. I refused and offered to purchase the concrete myself and did so on 03/20/15 in the amount of $363.18.

and employee left on 03/24/15 and said he would be back in 5-7 days when the concrete strip had cured. He never came back. He would not answer my phone calls and only answered some text messages. He kept telling me he needed to work more jobs so he could finish my fence. Finally his "employee" returned on and began work on 04/29/15, but only had a few days before he needed to leave for another job. He agreed that we had both been cheated in this deal and he did not want to leave us like that so he came back on his own to help me. I worked with him to get as much done as possible, but it was not completely finished when he left. I also had to spend $2,000.00 more in materials to get the fence up and I will unfortunately have to spend more to replace the poor quality pickets that have already cracked and broke along with the gates that are falling apart.
I made a huge mistake, but please do not let my mistake also be yours.
- Raymond A.

I would not use them again. I have a narrow driveway and the gate they put on were directly next to the asphalt and made it to narrow to get my vehicle in. I let the crew know about the issue, who seemed to be fine with re-doing the work. Once the owner approached me, he was definitely upset and advised of all the time it would take to correct.
