Eight years after my custom wood fence was installed, I found myself having to tie one of the fence posts to the tree in my backyard to prevent the fence from falling/flying away the next time a strong wind came along.
Since the fence was originally custom built onsite, I knew that a cheap, store purchased fence fix was not going to maintain the existing aesthetic.
Earl, at Chicago Wood Care Company, reached out to me directly conveying an genuine shared appreciation for wood as a material and the importance of its handling, characteristics, and aesthetic.
Extremely accommodating, Earl was able to come out to the house early one morning before I left for work to view the fence and assess the problem.
Earl immediately expressed a course of remedy and his confidence in himself to execute the repair.
A quote arrived via email from Earl and a date was set to begin the work.
Friendly, eager, honest, reliable, skilled/talented and trustworthy speaks to Earls person. The level of Earls workmanship is measurable by that of the highest standard.
Earl was able to do the work without my having to be at home. This was very important to me.
My fence never stood so straight and level as it now does. A recent high wind forecast didnt give me a moment of worry.
I thought Earls quote was fare albeit not the cheapest. This was just one of those things you need to pay a little bit more for to get the job done right while extending the life of a fence that will one day need to be replaced altogether.
