A few weeks ago, we had a bit of a wind storm here in Sacramento. Afterwards we discovered that nearly all the posts of our back fence had failed.
I was hoping to avoid replacing the fence until after we ran new water and sewer pipes for [our remodeling project]. In fact, I wouldn’t have worried about the fence at all right now were it not for the fact that one of my neighbors (the one *without* a fence, of course) has a dog. Oh well…
I called around and got several verbal quotes yesterday. I needed about 75 linear feet of fencing installed, and most places were quoting me $1,000 to $1,500 for 4-foot high chain link fencing, not including removal of the old fence. One of the places I called, [All Fence Design] aka [All Steel Fence Design], was just finishing a job and offered to drop by my house to do a written quote, since it was right on their way. They quoted me $1,150 — not the cheapest, but far from the most expensive. They were using the same high-grade materials that the expensive places were quoting me, *and* they were willing to haul away the old fence! To top it all off, they’d had a job fall through so they were available the very next day. It sounded good to me, so I gave them a deposit on the spot, with work scheduled to begin at 7:00 am the next morning.
They arrived about ten minutes early this morning and got right to work. After making sure they had everything they needed, I went off to my own job. I came home a bit early and they were just finishing up.
Casey (between the open gate and the telephone pole above, with his back to the camera) and his crew did a great job. They got the fence installed in one day, including hauling away the old fence. Galvanized chainlink fencing isn’t a particularly aesthetic material, but these guys made it look great in spite of that. It was good workmanship, quality materials, and a fair price — you can’t ask for better than that! If you need fence work done in the Sacramento area, I strongly recommend that you get a quote from [All Fence Design].
