Introduction: Most importantly, I personally supervise every project and do only one job at a time. I complete all projects as if they were my own house or yard. Other companies send out a "crew" of who knows who... I believe in quality over quantity. Therefore, I take the extra time and expense to build my fence frames with 3" deck screws, which is where fences fail in the future. The same is true with my decks as I only use screws (no nails). Currently there is a high demand for "Deck Makeovers", where we can usually remove and replace surface decking (saving current joist structure). This gives a brand new look, but provides considerable savings for the customer. Helping people complete projects without getting ripped off. I encourage my customers to read my reviews and compare how many customers I have had compared to others. Unlike most others, I specialize in fence and decks...not a "handyman" that does a little bit of everything. When I finish a project, I like to know that I would like that fence or deck at my own house.

Fence and Gate Installation

They were all extremely professional. Jon was always responsive to my texts and answered my questions. We couldn’t be happier with the fence they built for us and our new puppy.

Fence and Gate Installation

Jon and his crew constructed a new shadow box fence for me over the summer of 2020. With the shortage of lumber due to the effects of the pandemic, Jon kept me informed and my fence was constructed in about 2 and a half days. He was very responsive about any questions or concerns that I had. I had a couple of design ideas and he quoted for both. He gave his opinion on where I wanted to put gates and was honest about how much it would cost me. The price that was quoted at the beginning was the price that I paid in the end. I would recommend Jon to family and friends who are in need of a solid fence build. Thanks Jon!

The Semper Fi team did a great job constructing my fence to the high standards, great work ethic, and top quality they are known for. They were polite, respectful of my time and property, and got the job done exactly as I had hoped. The follow-up work was superb and prompt. I strongly recommend Semper Fi!

Fence and Gate Installation

Did a good job with building my fence, and even returned to replace a few boards and adjust one of my gates at my request. Very courtesy and scheduled and conducted business at the agreed times.

Fence and Gate Installation

*** Since Jon and his crew installed my new fence last December and I have been so pleased with it, I decided to have them out a second time to refinish my deck. Not only did he start the work intermediately he also took on a few additional requests during the remodel. They added an attractive siding to the elevated portion of my deck and equipped it with an easy access door for my crawl space. They also improved my stairs which were uneven and too steep. I am extremely happy with my decision and would trust them for any future work I may find I need. *** Jon and his team were a amazing. He worked with me to get the best fence possible and stay within my budget. My back yard looks better than I ever thought it could.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    No, my pricing is straight forward. For fences, I can usually give a per foot range of pricing. For decks, a sq. ft. pricing is used...But some customers don't know, that the price goes down as the deck gets bigger since much of the cost goes into the foundation. It is also important for customers to do their homework. Many times I find that customers have an unrealistic idea of what a deck costs. For ballpark purposes, a brand new ground level deck will cost between $24-30 per sq. ft. So, a 10'x10' deck will cost between $2400 - $3000.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    1. Personal meeting to evaluate the project and develop a quote. 2. Materials / scheduling deposit gets customer "locked" into calendar. 3. Mark all corners and gate placement with orange marking paint for customer approval. 4. Set posts in concrete (allow 24hrs). 5. Build frames using 3" lifetime screws. 6. Install pickets using 3" x .5" galvanized staples for extra strength. 7. Custom construct gates and install with all hardware. 8. New Backyard!!!!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have 4 college degrees to include Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, and Education. I was a licensed contractor in 1988 when I built my first house which was also my first home. Yes, I work with general contractors who keep me up to date with the latest tools, techniques and products. I also network with other fence builders, deck contractors and builders to be able to learn new skills and refer customers to other contractors if needed.
