Attention to detail: 24" deep fence post holes as recommended by the fence post manufacturer. No exceptions. Our crews follow best practices. This means we go through rocks, roots, dirt, and pretty much anything and everything that is on the way to reaching 24". Our goal is not just to install a post, but to make sure we install it right the first time. This way we lessen the chances of future premature fence post failure, saggy gates, one of the most common fence problem in local fence work.
Our cedar pickets are handpicked onsite before installation. You will not see us skimp on this. We take the extra time to ensure you only get the very best quality wood available in the market. We immediately discard pickets with crooked cuts, ball holes, warped edges, or any type of cracks.

Modern galvanized metal fence posts' slimmer profile gives your family more usable backyard space than a traditional wooden post. An extra half foot of space all the way around your backyard can easily add up to a lot of unrealized space between you and your property line. Galvanized metal fence posts are also more durable than wooden fence posts and are less prone to buckling, rotting, and breaking.
Exterior deck screws are used from A to Z. We only use the highest quality exterior deck screws available in the market when we install your fences. Our exterior deck screws have polymer coating to provide an added protection from rust and corrosion for the life of your fence. Exterior deck screws are stronger than nails and will not get easily pulled out even when the wood had fully dried. Pickets normally fall after a few years when nails are used. This could be a safety issue, especially if a neighbor has dogs... and you have kids. Exterior deck screws simply do a better job at holding your wooden fence together and much more tightly over a longer period of time.
We have learned through the years to be extra diligent and not to blindly follow the original fence installation. This means building everything from the ground up, actually planning the new fence line, digging new and deeper holes instead of reusing old ones, and installing the fence to account for slope and general topographical features of your landscape. We do this to adjust for changes that had happened since the last install. This will avoid repeating fence design flaws, like having fence posts too near a tree, a concrete footing, or a plant bed that may have contributed to premature fence wear and tear.
Instead of installing your new fence in front of trees, we take the time to customize your new fence line to maximize your usable backyard space. This alone could give you as much as an extra foot or two of backyard space. We custom cut each picket to account for the shape of tree branches. You will not see us forcing a fence picket in place. We instead use our skills and equipment to work around trees and other obstacles. It may take a little more time, but the difference this makes in doing today pays for itself over the life of your new fence.
Include as much detail as possible including relevant dimension of your backyard in linear feet, preferred gate size, and materials you may want us to use should you have any preferences. This helps us give you an accurate estimate of the fence project.
For fence repair, maintenance, or install projects, we need to see your specific situation to provide an accurate estimate. You'll get an email reminder of our free on-site estimate. Afterward, we will email you a detailed line-item material and labor estimate for the work.
We install wooden or metal posts with picket fence. Cedar pickets may be dog eared or flat top. We can also install your pickets vertically or horizontally.
