Recent Review: Victor , the owner, and Rocco arrived shortly after 9a.m. on August 26 to begin the fence installation. They removed the old fence and will dispose of it. They laid the ground work for the new fence and began installation. Rocco was wonderful and worked hard all day, even through some light rain. My dogs can now run free without worry of them finding a place to dig under the fence. This type of fencing has opened up my property. It is nearly invisible from a distance and has been a great improvement to my back yard. I am extremely pleased with the fencing, the price, and the workmanship. They also affixed some wiring to the bottom of the stockade fence that is remaining on the right side of my property. If you have pets and want a great fence from a wonderful company, call Victor. You will not be disappointed.

Recent Review: I solicited four estimates for this job. Elite Fence and Deck was neither the highest nor the lowest bid for this job. I selected this company because of the higher degree of professionalism in their bid process. They took the time to explain all details and point out any issues I might encounter with my fence installation. The lowest bidder did not even want to come out for an estimate. They quoted me over the phone without even seeing the job. The highest bidder was substantially more. They quoted me a three week lead time to start the work and one to two days to complete the job. Now for the actual work. Exactly three weeks later they were ready to do the job. Right on schedule. How good is this? I have always had difficulty getting people who really work on schedules in this area. When they arrived, I asked for some changes in the job (more fencing than originally planned). I also asked that they try to complete the job in one day, if at all possible. They started work at 8:30am and continued to work till almost 8pm, finishing the job in one day. The fence is beautiful and this group bent over backwards to make sure I was happy! I can't say enough good things about this company and strongly recommend them.
Recent Review: the fencing was installed "long distance", as we were not in residence at the time. The Keller Fence Company was in touch with us during the entire process..calling and emailing us several times to make sure our needs for fencing were being met. we would highly recommend them to anyone who requires fencing.
Recent Review: UPDATE: Dakota Fence Minot installed my semi private fence WELL ahead of schedule. I am one happy customer beyond my expectations. My fence arrived and I was contacted immediately to begin construction. My posts were installed by the construction crew on 13 Nov. The crew foreman discussed with me a quick survey of my property to ensure where I wanted my fence and the direction of how I wanted the gate to open still applied. That was at 0900, our scheduled meeting time. By noon, there was a team of 7 crew members on my property working, marking the fence line, digging the holes, pouring the cement, etc. Then by 5pm all posts were set and my property was free of debris, dirt and my grass and sprinkler heads were as the crew found them. That weekend following the post install we had a dusting of snow. The posts were set for one week, however, almost immediately my neighbors kids used my property as their newfound football field, which it actually looked like one. The neighbors dogs also got their final toilet habits in my yard out the way, as well during that week. Thus good fences make good neighbor concept resonates. In addition to the kids and the dogs free reigning throughout my property, the light snow made it unsafe and not intended to be a playground. Due to the safety and legalities of all concerned I asked Dakota Fence to post a construction sign. The weather was definitely on my side on construction days as not only was the ground not frozen in order to post but only moments after my fence was fully erected and functional we were hit with 4" of snow. That was on 20 Nov in the morning when the crew returned and completed my fence beautifully by the first snow flake. Timing could not have been more perfect. When I expected my fence install would not begin until the spring 2014 it was fully functional within hours of our first substantial snow fall 2013. My family and our pets were able to enjoy our property without other dogs and neighbors disrespecting property lines, even after being told to refrain from doing so. No more neighbor pet poop to pick up as my own pets territory was clearly marked by their dogs or kids knocking over patio furniture and statues running amuck on other people property. The snow blanketed within my fence was a stunning sight to see to say the least. Our fence is absolutely beautiful and being that it's semi private I can continue to observe the neighbor kids attempting to use the fence as their target practice as they did with my shed or their dogs trying to get through the fence to potty and take appropriate actions as necessary. The semi private vinyl fence provided me peace of mind to enjoy my new home as intended. The Bufftech fence is warranty driven and proved itself wind resistant already and built to last. I thank Dakota Fence Minot for facilitating that source of sanity for me, my family and our pets. We love, love, love our new fence and highly recommend Dakota Fence Minot for all your fencing needs.
Recent Review: The design of our fence is unique and original due to Hal's artistry. We get lots of compliments on the looks and craftsmanship of the fence. Hal was good to work with. He was patient with us even though we changed our minds a couple of times during the process. He really wanted to be sure we were satisfied. He got the job done on time and everything was as expected. He checked back in with us later in the summer. There were a couple of decorative boards that had warped on the fence and he promplty replaced them. We liked working with Hal because of the personal touch he gave. You don't get that with the big companies, and our dogs love him too.
Overall, my interaction with Artistic Fence was exceptional; from meeting with the sales person, to communicating with the office, to the builders on site. The work was done in a timely matter with beautiful quality. I was kept informed about what to expect and when the builders would be coming out. I was impressed that a fence company would be able to re-sod and landscape my yard all in one job. Everyone I encountered was very pleasant, it was a pleasure to have worked with them and I cannot say enough good things about this company. I would highly recommend Artistic Fence for any fencing, and their brother landscape company for any other yard details. The fence still looks beautiful and I have had many wonderful comments on it.

The work was good. Had it notated on work estimate to have gate low enough so my little dog couldn't escape. It was a little higher than I wanted, but so far my dog has not been able to get out.

excellent service from the receptionist to the owner to the workers. I was very pleased with their work, their punctuality, their expertise, their friendly staff, and workers. Phone calls were returned right away as the owner carried cell phone with him. I was very pleased with my new fence, and a year later- still enjoying my new fence.

Was going to buy the parts and DIY but Keller did the repair while I waited. Keller has done small fence installs for me 3-4 times in the past. Always first class service and workmanship.

We had a hard time finding many professionals in our area that had experience working with vinyl. We found Larsen at a home show and were impressed with how knowledgeable and experienced they seemed to be with their products. They were also very up front on their cost - which was higher than I would have expected. Because I didn't really trust our other options, we decided to go with Larsen. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Randy was excellent to work with and really stepped us through the whole process. Once they began working, they were done in just a few days. The product they use appears to be much higher quality than anything I could find at any big box retailer. This was a major selling point since we didn't want to be troubled by maintenance (hence vinyl over wood) and it holds up great even in high wind. It also looks much nicer than any other vinyl in town, even a year later. They also warranty parts and labor on all their work for extra piece of mind. Yes, their services probably cost more, but if you're willing to pay for it you're getting the best.

Company worked closely with us, excellent communication, handled and worked around job complications due to our clearing issues and then re-clearing issues due to storm, in a most professional manner. They were ready to start immediately, but our project required the removal of some trees and lots of brush on our part, and I had limited time, as did my chainsaw-savy counterparts. A project manager was assigned who took this into consideration and started the job in ready areas while we continued our preparation work. As soon as the clearing work was done, a storm hit, bringing more trees down over the cleared areas. They were willing to delay but we managed to re-clear while they finished the privacy fence and the chainlink work was able to proceed smoothly when they were done with that. Excellent communication and friendly, professional workers.

I did not get the common courtesy of a response after our initial contact seeking a quote for their services. Due to a lack of response, I will not recommend their services. Even a "no" would have been appreciated. I could have been contacting other companies to do the job I have in mind.

Excellent. He was willing to come out Sunday, but we decided that Monday would work. He came out to the house at the time agreed upon and did a great job. Highly recommended.
- Brad T....
He provides excellent handyman services. He worked with a big company for years here. He knows a lot. I highly recommend him. He has years of experience through all different things because he has worked with different companies. He is a little bit slower than some of the other people you have used in the past; but he doesn't charge a lot. He is detail oriented like you would not believe. He cleans his mess like you would not believe.
