and his crew did a WONDERFUL job installing our privacy fence. They showed up when they said they would.
kept my" wife and I informed of the progress. They encountered a lot of ledge which made their job more demanding to install our fence and keeping in mind our small dog that likes to crawl thru small spaces. They kept the fence as low as possible so the dog could not get out. They battled thru and the end result is amazing. We had a minor issue with one gate. It was supposed to open to the left, instead it opened to the right. We notified
of the issue and within a few days had the repair technicians (unfortunately I did not get their names) out and now the gate is opening to the left. Overall, we had a great experience with
and the Repair Techs (they deserve credit too) and would recommend them to anyone who asks. And if any future customer is lucky enough to get
and his crew, they will be very pleased (as we were) with the finished results. Thank you again to
, the Repair Techs and especially
and his crew.

"From the very first contact,
provided excellent service.
came and gave a fair and reasonable estimate and a few" days later a crew showed up to take down the old fence and build a new wood fence. The workmen were polite and cleaned up after themselves. The most important part is they built a sturdy fence and a new gate that looks really nice and I am sure will add value to my home. I would recommend this company to my friends and family.

Tips for Dealing with Flaky Contractors

Dear Angie: I gave a fencing contractor a $1,300 deposit on a $2,600 job. Months after we signed a contract, no work has been done. What should I do?


Fences provide practical and aesthetic value, but a badly conceived fence can be an eyesore and a source of conflict with neighbors. With wooden privacy fences, vinyl fences and others, it can be difficult to pick the best fencing option for your home. Consider these tips before making this investment in your home.

Hiring a professional to install a fence can increase the price of your fencing project, depending on size and the type of fence.

Angie's Answers


I would say depends on several things:

1) what % of the job is $400 ?

2) how good is the warranty - against all types of failure, or what - cedar fences usually fail in one of two ways - tornado/hurricane/waves/flood/car collision takes them out, or the posts (if not treated timber) rot out. The fence itself will change color and get fuzzy as it weathers, but should last 15-20 years in most areas.

3) generally, a fence is not something you would pay for a warranty on - if properly put up and with concreted-in copper chromate or copper napthalate treated posts (the green preservative) should last a long time and not need warranty work basically till the fasteners fail or the fence slat boards split too badly.

4) if I was going to spend extra money on a wood fence, it would be for a good quality penetrating sealer, not steel posts.

Fence Company reviews in Amherst


Thank you again for my beautiful fence. People are slowing down to take a look. I am grateful for the prompt response. I had other work that I needed to be completed. But, the fence had to go up first. I would not have been able to do any of this without their promptness and understanding. Courteous service. Fair price. Quote was less than others. Service was great. Fence was installed exactly to my specifications with care and precision.

, owner, is completely unreliable and his word isn't worth a wooden nickel. If he didn't want the job, all he had to do was say so, instead he avoids me like a relative who owes you money. His office assistant,

The fence repair was done in a timely manner however it was not finished and I was told someone would return the next day/week to stain the fence as agreed Despite several promises (at least 5), different excuses and more promises after 2 months the fence has still not be stained. In fact during my last call with
Amherst Fence Companies Provider Name Locked
he apologized and guaranteed someone would be out the following week. Still nothing I understand stuff happens but also expect more professionalism- not once have I received a call from them apologizing for not meeting their commitment I would not use again or recommend their services
- Steve G.

He was punctual, got the job done in a timely manor. Priced better than the other two estimates that I got plus he was able to get the job done sooner. Cleaned up well. Most importantly, when he found out one of my dogs could squeeze through the area between my home and the fence post, he added an extra post so the dog couldn't get out. He even took down at least 6 large lilac bushes that were in the way of the fence and didn't charge me extra.

8 days after the inspection, I still have no received an estimate for work. I sent an email and two phone calls to try to get the estimate. I spoke with
Amherst Fence Companies Provider Name Locked
the second time I called and he said he had been busy and would try to get me the estimate that day or the next. That was days ago and I never heard back from him.

I am very happy with the work provided by
Amherst Fence Companies Provider Name Locked
and his crews. Last fall they installed a 6' stockade fence around our backyard. Everything was done well except on the gate they used nails instead of screws. After a couple of slams (self-closing gate), those nails were starting to pop loose. I called them and they were out the next day to fix it up nice and tight with screws. No problems since.
When our lawn mower died this spring, we decided to get a service and I called
Amherst Fence Companies Provider Name Locked
for a recommendation, not realizing they did this also! I had an estimate the next day and the following day my
Amherst Fence Companies Provider Name Locked
yard was mowed, trimmed and picked up - yay! $30 a visit is soo worth it.
- Gail B.

Professional from day 1. Great communication and talked through our needs and made sure we were happy with what was to be done. They built us a beautiful fence with awesome doors. The cleanup job they did was great, removed all the old materials and pulled out weeds that were in the way. We could not be happier with our fence and would recommend BC to anyone. Our neighbors have had nothing but compliments on our new fence.
