We are a bit confused by this review....when we looked into your name we were not able to match anyone with the fencing type requested. If you could give us a bit more information we could look into this further. We appreciate all of the A's in your review but are very confused why there would be a " F" as your overall experience. We strive very hard to provide quality service and without knowing ...

My next door neighbors hired Dakota Unlimited to replace their chain link fence (including along the property line between our properties). This was something that had been on my own todo list for a couple of years now so I took the prompt and contacted Dakota Unlimted to expand the project to include the parts go the fence they were going to originally leave and the fence along the other side of ...

Fantastic job by Dakota Unlimited from start to finish. My old cedar fence was rotting and falling in. Since it was too late to install a new fence last winter, my salesman, Danny, even came out in the snow to install a temporary portion so my dogs would be safe! Josh and the tear out crew did a wonderful job, taking great care of my existing perennial beds and leaving my yard in pristine conditio...

Although Dakota Unlimited was more expensive than most fence companies, I was assured that their quality and service would make it worth it. After the job was complete, I asked that they come back out to fix one of the walls as it wasn't straight. They came out and "fixed" it but it still wasn't straight. I told them that "we are not entirely happy with the fence line but I think we can live with ...

When reading a review, I think it is best to hear both sides of the story and we appreciate the opportunity to share our side. We always strive to provide our customers with the best experience and regret that you don’t feel that is what you have received. Many times, when installing a fence, we run in to obstacles that make it difficult to provide a perfect straight line. In your case there was a...

Overall good experience, the fence and gate look amazing and really tie the backyard all together. However, the one side of the fence now places the underground sprinkler heads, which were clearly marked with flags, (3 of them) on my neighbor's yard that water the fence on his side of the property. I have reached out them but not heard back unfortunately. I hope they can provide a resolution to th...

We are so glad you love your fence. When our production manager came out immediately to assess the situation, it was made clear that we put your new privacy fence in the same location as your old chain link fence, with the exception of a tree we needed to avoid. This is not a mistake made by Dakota because we didn't install the sprinkler heads on the other side of your current fence line. While it...

Great company to work with. They contacted me within 24 hours after my initial call to set up a time to come and give and estimate. They did a beautiful job installing the 91 feet of privacy fencing where the old fence had deteriorated and seemed very knowledgable. They finished ahead of schedule, too. Customer service was excellent. Communication was excellent. Pricing was on the high side.

My experience with Dakota Unlimited exceeded expectations from beginning to end. Our salesperson Andrew was knowledgeable, thorough, and professional. He recommended products that fit exactly what we were looking for - while all along educating us on how our choices would impact the final price. While other companies wrote quick quotes, Andrew took the extra steps to ensure we were getting what we...
