Consumer says Mission Viejo wood fence contractor performed shoddy work

Member complaint

We hired California Fence Company of Mission Viejo, California, to install wood fencing around our air conditioning units, and we paid upfront. After the fence installation, they said it needed to set for about a week before they could stain the wood to match the rest of our house.

When they came back a couple of weeks later, the stain didn’t match, even though my husband gave them the name and brand of the stain already on our house. They said they would be back in a few days, and they never came back again!

We left messages with a secretary and many messages and texts to an employee, who answered us once. He made an appointment, but never showed up or bothered to call! After months of being left in the cold and humidity, the untreated wood started to warp and screws were popping out of joints.

We had to pay for someone else to fix and finish the job that we already paid California Fence Company to do. We want to be reimbursed $750 to cover the cost of hiring another company.

Penalty Box

Have a complaint?

Our Angie’s List complaint resolution team attempts to resolve disputes between members and service providers. During this process, three outcomes can happen: Penalty Box, Resolved or Stalemate. Companies that don’t respond to a member’s complaint will be placed in the Penalty Box until they respond. A case becomes Resolved if a company addresses the complaint to the member’s satisfaction, or it becomes a Stalemate if the provider responds, but the company and the member can’t reach an agreement. Find out more about the Complaint Resolution Process.
