Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
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!

Our old fence was rotted, leaning and in danger of completely failing. Jon Pike met with us and gave us options with regards to gate sizes, what we wanted, our concern for access and egress from the yard, how our expansion of the back yard would fit into our fencing needs, and overall look of the fence. He made suggestions and these resulted in cost savings for us that he could have just gone with what we "thought" we wanted and actually made more money. That is integrity! He was patient, accommodating and professional. We were willing to wait for the fence job to start because we had done our homework and knew this was going to be a quality job. Unfortunately from the time we met with Mr. Pike and when the job was to start, my mom and my husband passed away in just two weeks time period. Mr. Pike was there to supervise the job and the men that did the work were polite, courteous, respectful and gracious. My son and a family friend who are both familiar with building fences looked over the work being done and both commented on the quality of the job and the way Mr. Pike builds his fences. I am beyond pleased with the fence and Mr. Pike's work ethic. One side of our fence had to be put in with the "pretty side inside" because the neighbor's yard had holly bushes which made access to make the fence uniform in appearance from the backyard impossible. I am in the process of putting in flowerbeds to run the length of the back fence line. A shed will go in next. I am considering having Mr. Pike come back and build me a pergola for the back patio. I could not be happier with Mr. Pike's team and the job done.

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.

  • 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.
