Recent Review: First time buying a fence and Brad Hopkins couldn't have made it easier. The project was a complete success and our fence was installed professionally. It looks amazing. The crew that installed the fence were great. Highly recommend..
Recent Review: These guys have fence installation down to a science. I was amazed how quickly yet precisely they put up our fence for our puppy. We have received countless compliments on their work over the past month by neighbors. Mike stands by his work and when it became apparent that he had received sub-par post caps from his material supplier he readily agreed to replace them all, without complaint. I have used C&C Fencing twice and will have another project for them this winter. I won't bother to get multiple quotes. C&C Fencing is the company of choice.
Recent Review: Mark Simpson and East Coast Landscaping were great to work with on this project. At every step of the way, Mark worked with us to get what we want, and stay within the budget we had set. They were able to completely change our backyard from a plain old DC yard with a less than ideal deck, into an oasis in NE DC. They were able to take my original plans for our yard and create a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of the DC work life and stay within budget while still adding in the little extras we came up with in the last few days. The value of the work done will add 2 times the amount spent on the project once we decide to sell and move on form this house. But that will be tough to do now that we have the backyard of our dreams. I would highly recommend East Coast Landscaping for any work you are considering getting done to your house. They are professionals and know what they are doing. It is well worth getting a quote from Mark on your next project, as they were not over priced and certainly not hard to work with through out the project. They are a quality company who valued us as customers. They where willing to come back a month later to do touch ups from the project, and fix our gate which we foolishly left open for the wind to slam shut and damage.
Recent Review: Working with The Outdoor Advantage was an extreme pleasure. Dave, Vince and crew are friendly, talented and dedicated. I'm in the process of slowly restoring an 1860s Italianate rowhouse. The backyard had been neglected for several decades and was in need of major work. So the backyard project was something I've been planning and anticipating for many years. I had specific design ideas and high expectations. The Outdoor Advantage was a perfect fit for the project. They understood and enhanced my vision, creating a final product that would not have been possible without their expertise. We worked on a design for the wood fences that incorporated classic elements to compliment the historic period of the house. I also wanted a brick for the patio that would compliment the historic building. Dave selected several appropriate brick samples and dropped them off at the house for me to approve. The outcome exceeds my expectations. The communication was always prompt; crew arrived every morning at the same time; everyone paid close attention to detail - working quickly but never rushed. It is clear that this company wants to please their clients and leave a lasting legacy of great work. I look forward to many years of enjoyment in this backyard. This company is one of the best!
Recent Review: Got of to a shaky start because the sales rep initially provided an inaccurate estimate because he relied on the measurments taken by another company rather than take his own. However, once that was straightened out, I was very pleased. The crew who installed the fence had obviously done this a few times before. Not only did they work quickly, but the quality of their workmanship and the material they used, was very high.
Recent Review: Great service, professional installation and great final product. We put an initial deposit of 30% and two weeks later had final approval on fence. Tom set up the install and it proceeded very smoothly. High recommend!
Recent Review: Fence Masters work for us was done in two phases: removing the fence and stacking it in the corner of our yard, then coming back to replace the fence in an agreed-upon new layout. They were patient, professional, and cost-effective from start to finish. The estimating process was quick but thorough, and when it came time to measure and place the new fence, their representative was incredibly helpful and detail-oriented. Everything was confirmed ahead of the work being done: where posts would be placed, how the sections should slope, how high to hang things off the ground, where to place a gate and how it should swing, etc. They also counted and maximized the number of posts and pickets that they could re-use, versus ones they would have to order new -- so there were no surprises when it came to the price. The work was done in a very reasonable timeframe and they communicated well with us about when we could expect workmen on-site. Work was done very professionally and clean-up was thorough. Overall we had no complaints and would gladly use them again!
Recent Review: We hired Freedom Fence after getting, or tried to get, multiple estimates from various companies. Freedom Fence was able to provide an estimate on the spot. We really liked the Owner Steve as it was clear that he knew his business. We also liked the fact that he would be directly involved with the install. Steve was always responsive and was able to do the job with only a small weather delay. The quality of the materials and the installation were first rate.
Recent Review: They were an excellent company to deal with. Frank came out several times to update our estimate as we decided where we wanted the fence and gates to go. The installers came when promised and worked fast on a really warm day. The fence is beautiful and the gates work well. What more could we ask for? I had one concern over the height of the fence portion that went over a retaining wall but it turned out to be a non-issue with the dog so I let it go. I'm glad Frank talked us into the cedar to match our house. It's lovely!
It went great--an excellent experience from start to finish. Originally I hired All Around to dig some fence post holes for a "do it yourself" fence project I was considering. But they quoted me such a great price for a full installation that I couldn't refuse and I ended up hiring them to do the entire thing. And they were great to deal with in other ways as well: 1. They were responsive to calls and emails; 2. They helped me put together a summary of the project so I could submit it to my HOA; 3. They showed up on time and worked efficiently; 4. They were courteous and professional; 5. They paid attention to detail and made the completed project look great; In short, I was very impressed by All Around and wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

Well. Installation was fast and well-executed. Price point was slightly higher than some competitors, but I found them to be a bit more professional/polished. Once the contract was signed, I did have to follow with a phone call to the office to see about a start date. If I remember correctly, they were simply waiting on the delivery of materials, but it would have been nice if they had reached out on their end. Regardless, this is a minor criticism and we are very pleased with the fence. Would hire again.

Salesman was great, they showed up to do the job when they were supposed to, finished quickly, large crew, cleaned up after themselves. The fence didn't wear well, boards warped and curled up and gate literally fell apart, and latch fell off gate less than 4 years old. Called them to ask for repair. Spoke with 3 or 4 people who were all really nice and took all my information. When last person called he was gruff almost to the point of being impolite. I explained to him that the wood was warping and the tops of the fence was curling up and the gate had fallen apart. He interrupted me to tell me, "well the gate alone is $750.00, do you still want me to come out and fix it." That's almost 50% of what the original cost of the entire fence was! I told him no and called a handyman who fixed the whole thing for less than $100.00. I will never use Long Fence again or any of the affiliates.

I originally contacted Doug (FBD) in October 2009 for an fence estimate. He arrived promptly, measured the boundary using survey from settlement and met the neighbors. Doug provided a great deal beyond an estimate. He understands the Columbia HOA process and imparted invaluable information on that process. Several months later contacted him again after securing multiple estimates for the job. Doug does not use subcontractors, he gives the estimate and along with Tony actually constructs the fence. There were some weather related and manufacturing delays and he provided excellent follow-up throughout. In addition, he was able to assist in neighbor issues since he was there for the initial meeting and conversation. I am enthralled with my fence, it is amazing construction and beautifully laid out around the base of a hill even my disgruntled neighbors admit it's quality craftsmenship. Passerbys remark on it and request company information, which I happily provide. I highly recommend FBD fencing, you get much more than an exceptional fence, Doug is a true professional.

Doug was very responsive to my inquiry and very quick to give me an estimate. I was not home when he came over so he left the estimate at the door and then explained everything to me over the phone. I accepted his quote and felt lucky that he said he could install the fence so quickly. He also made a special trip by my house to show me the two different types of pickets available. On the day he came the snow was melting and it made my backyard very muddy. At first I was concerned because the whole place looked like a big mud pit and I was thinking how dirty my dogs would be if I let them in the backyard. I expressed my concern to Doug and he said he would come put grass seed and straw on it the next day. The fence turned out looking great! Not only did Doug put grass seed and straw on my backyard, but I think he also put down lime or some other lawn nutrient because I could see little white balls of stuff in my yard. So to me he really went above and beyond. Doug was a very nice person and was very easy to deal with. He made the whole process low stress and I really appreciated that. I wish he did other kinds of work (other than fences) because I'd be inclined to hire him again. But my fence is so good that I likely won't need another one for 25 years.

The salesman was very nice and knowledgeable. He didn't pressure me into making a decision at our first meeting and responded to follow-up questions quickly. On the day of the fence installation the crew arrived earlier than the estimated time - calling in advance to make sure that was ok. The job required removal of an existing fence, and installation of a vinyl fence covering a larger portion of the yard than was originally fenced. They worked efficiently and finished the job in one day. So far, the fence looks great and works wonderfully. The product was exactly as described.

They did a great job. They showed up on time to do the work. They were very friendly and polite. They cleaned up well after themselves when they were done. I would use them again and would also recommend them.
