IF you choose to use this provider, make sure you get every detail in writing. don't assume that they will follow "Best prictices" for the installation. Draw pictures because they don't understand the difference between a "Step" and a "Slope". The bottom horizontal rail was sloped with the ground instead of stepped at a post to keep the top and bottom rails parallel.The posts that are supposed to be spaced at 6' 6" vary from 6' 4" to 6' 8" apart. As a result of this spacing 2 of the horizontal rails are not hooked into the posts properly. Several of the end caps between the vertical panels and the posts are too short by about an inch and were not alligned with the posts. Just to make matters worse, I had to spend about an hour cleaning up the piles of vinyl shavings left around my yard because the didn't clean up when they were done.
They arrived almost a day late and as a result they must have been in a hurry to get done. In my opinion, this haste caused them to have poor attention to detail which resulted in an unsatisfactory installation.

What a great experience. My only regret was not getting to meet any of the people face to face. We discovered that a stretch of our 6' cedar fence was leaning due to what looked to us like a rotted post (treated, but rotted anyway . . . .). The older man who put the fence in had since retired and closed his company. I called several other fence companies from Angie's List, but everyone was either too busy for such a small job, or too far away to want to take it on. I understand that, not complaining, but it meant I had to go back and

the pages of fence companies and hope for the best. Not only did Bill agree to have someone come out and estimate the work, but with all the crazy weather and few sunny days to get work done in, he fit us into his busy schedule right away. He gave me an approximate time frame when the repair could be done, and also advised us that we had three rotten posts, not one. I came home one day to discover that the posts had been replaced and my yard left nice and clean. I especially liked being able to get the invoice via email, and paying it online. Not only would I use

again, they will be the first place I call if I need anything like this done in the future.

My originally experience went well and the price was right so I contacted them again to repair my fence after it was damaged in the wind storm at the end of June. I dealt with a salesman named

who also does repairs.

is a very nice guy to work with and takes the time to talk to you and explain things. The work performed was excellent and the area was very clean afterwards. There was one minor problem that took place, but was quickly fixed a few days later by

himself with an apology. They didn't even charge my credit card until the job was completely done to my satisfaction which I appreciate. Thats a sign of a good business in my book. I will definitely recommend them. Ask for

According to the manufacturer, the whole operation should not have taken more than a couple weeks. It has taken six months.
The contractor rarely came out himself and left all work to his minions and subcontractors.
There were problems at every step of the way, most of them resulting from inexperienced people working without supervision....More /> * Two crews and one independent subcontractor were involved with pouring the slab. The footings got washed out a couple times and there was a lot of re-digging of trenches. The resulting footings were a few inches off square, and used far more concrete than required. The slab was poured on a rainy day. They kinda lost control of the job. I ended out having to run to the hardware to buy visquine to keep the rain off. I was promised a light broom finished and a slightly crested slab. I got a complicated, rain-pocked slab that required treatment with a hardener.
* The first subcontractor to work on erecting the building didn't realize that there were two different types of arched pieces and mixed them up. They then beat on things to try to make them fit . . . without success. This destroyed materials. There was a delay when new materials were ordered.
* The Contractor's own crew then tried to assemble the building, but they, too, didn't realize that there were different types of arched pieces. They couldn't get past panel five of 20.
* The Contractor brought in someone with prior experience erecting arched steel buildings and construction. This guy figured out what was wrong and erected 11 of 20 panels with no problems, but then ran out of materials. This resulted in conflict between the Contractor and the arched building guy. The Contractor wanted to doc the guy's pay because the original order for replacement parts didn't correctly predict what was needed to finish the building. They didn't have formal contracts and there was and still is much disagreement about who is responsible for what.
* Another order went out for replacement materials. These are not stock items, and it took about two months for a factory run and for load consolidation in shipping. Once parts arrived, the building erection has gone fairly smoothly.
* When the building was up and things dried out it became apparent that the slab was soft and
Lake Tapps Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
, and generating an alarming amount of dust. Negotiation has been required to get a concrete specialist out to prep the floor and apply a commercial hardener to fix the surface problems (apparently the result of rain during the pour).
*The erected building failed its first final inspection because the contractor's employees had opted not to install the brackets to secure the building to the foundation. The contractor explicitly billed me for the anchors to install these brackets. Further negotiation was required to get these brackets installed. This is FLORIDA, and, yes, inspectors are going to be alert to any foundation anchoring that might compromise the building's hurricane strength, especially given these are specified on the engineered plans.
*Although

stated that he had filed a notice of termination with the county, county records do not show this a month after he received final payment. The effect of this is that he has a

on my title and I cannot use my property as collateral on a loan.
Negotiating with Osprey has been unpleasant. Early in the job, the Contractor accused me of liable for telling the plumber that there had been some delays in construction so he would have to come out a few days later than originally stated. A month into the work they sent a notice saying that they had a legal right to put a
Lake Tapps Fence Installers Provider Name Locked
on my property if I didn't pay up. Such notification is supposed to be in the original contract for work and needs to be signed by the Contractee. Since then, communication has been stiff.

The only good thing I can say is that Osprey has been fairly responsible about fixing mistakes, though the process has cost them many thousands of dollars and wasted an enormous amount of time.

Mr. Raymes was punctual for his estimate. His materials quote was spot on. His installation quote was very reasonable. Extremely polite was here when he said he would be. The fence looks amazing.

looked at it and said he would change the location of the latch. He was going to weld it. Within a few minutes he rang my bell and said it was fixed. It was an adjustment on the gate. It did not need to be welded. He told me there would be no charge! I asked him if he was sure and he said yes. What a nice gentlemen! I highly recommend.
