    It went well enough that I would give them an opportunity to bid another job should the need arise, however, I would be more attentive to their bid amount and get more competing bids.
    Enclosed a swimming pool and mechanical utilities.  Final product looks very nice and does function as we need.  A few delays along the way, but nothing serious.  One crew member a bit awkward with complaints about having to work so hard.  Crew chief on the job easy to work with and very positive attitude.  Minor mud mess but nothing out of the ordinary.  Uncovered cable wires and weed barriers never reburied -- need to do it myself -- somewhat of a disappointment and hassle.  My wife worked this project.  I got the distinct impression she was being slightly up-charged possibly due to location.   This is my estimate and I welcome Lynchburg Fence to provide more specifics.
    For example (I will give this example based upon six foot fence sections): 
    - Cost to us for a 6' section of fence installed was approx $162 (6 * $27/ft final charged price). 
    - Retail cost of material is approx $70 (via a google search of several locations, this could vary up or down $10). 
    - If one were to guess it took 15 minutes to install a 6' section, and to guess actual labor cost to Lynchburg Fence was about $20/hour/person, then actual labor cost to install a 6' section was approx $10 (2 crew * ($20/hr/4(15 minutes))). 
    - Therefore the gross margin per 6' section with labor was approx $82.  ($162 - ($70 + $10) = $82). 
    - An $82 gross margin is approx a margin of 51%.
    - An average gross margin would be approx 21% (according to iLumen Financial Benchmarking).
    - Consequently a possible up charge to my wife around $50 per 6 foot installed section, ((51% - 21%) * 162).
    - We had 187' installed or about 31 six foot sections installed so the possible up charge to my wife was approx $1550, (31 * $50).
    Even if my estimate of costs and margins above is incorrect by 30%, then the up charge to my wife for just the Aluminum Fence would still be around $1000, so as I said, it appears they did up charge my wife for this job.
