I needed new range and icemaker installation. Larry responded almost immediately to my request, was here within an hour to look at the job and to assess equipment he would need. He returned later in the day, completed both jobs very satisfactorily and economically, even returned when requested to reposition the range. I give him 5 stars and will refer him to my friends. I plan to call on him later to install a kitchen cabinet and a divider wall.

Scott has done multiple projects for me over the years. He has put a new roof on my house, remodeled bathrooms, built a storage shed, installed doors and windows, installed siding, installed light fixtures. He has refinished office spaces and installed flooring. His work is very professional and he takes great pride in a job well done. I would recommend Scott for ANY project my home or office needed.

I purchased two floodlights that needed to be installed (one was high up on the house), and a new doorbell. While he was here, he also fixed my wooden gate that wouldn't close to my fenced in backyard. He was on-time, priced fair, got right to work, and did a good job. Definitely will hire again.

Great job dry walling and painting my living room. It looks beautiful! Also, Roger’s Home and Building removed a wall between the living room and kitchen. It really opened up the kitchen. I couldn’t be happier!

Paid what I was quoted, fully expecting it to be twice as much, so I am pleased as punch on the money side. The yard looks awesome, too. My only complaint was that I left my garage door open and had to sweep it after, but that's not a big deal. I'll know better NEXT time. Thank you for your integrity and doing what you said you would. It's been highly appreciated today!

Jim Desmond has done several projects for me and his work is high quality with much attention to detail. He and his crew remodeled a kitchen in one of my rental properties. The work was professional and on time. I will definitely use him again. They also did exterior wall replacement, a utility building, and screened in a porch. I would highly recommend him.

David and his crew professionally assessed the requirements that would have to be done in order to finish a job started by a handyman who turned out to be not as handy as he promised. David gave me a fair and honest appraisal of what needed to be accomplished in order to finish the job-in-progress. His candor, without impugning the capabilities or honesty of the initial individual, gave me a very good idea of what needed to be done to get back on track and how long it would take, along with an accurate estimate of the overall costs. David said he'd be done in two weeks and he was, unlike the first person who also promised two weeks then disappeared after milking me of the quoted money over a three month period, leaving a disaster, and completely disappearing. To say that I am happy with David's work is an understatement. He did what he said he would and did it very well. Outstanding is closer to describing his work and the results. My only regret is that I did not think of him initially. We would have a great building but it would have cost a lot less. I am grateful to David and his crew for cleaning up the mess left by another, and making everything right. When I saw David's name on Thumbtack I recognized it and immediately confirmed that he was the man who routinely maintained the duplex we rented when we first transferred to this area about 20 years ago. While we lived in it, he did a super job maintaining the duplex. For those who don't know, having a house on the beach may sound romantic but the romance comes at a very high maintenance price; the environment is flat-out hard on structures and vehicles. David did a superb job then and his quality of work has only improved. If you need his services, I very highly recommend him as the go to guy. Don't make the mistake I did; you will get the quality of work for which you are willing to pay. I found David to be fair and honest. His crew work hard and are as professional as he. What more could you ask?

    Kyle is prompt, hard working, dependable, friendly, and gives very fair pricing! All the work he has done so far in my yard and on my fence (the entire back of the fence had to be replaced) is superb! I don't intend on ever using anyone else for landscaping needs in Wilmington.

    Very professional.Joe installed over 3000 ft. of woven field fence around my property and around 2000 ft. of electric fence,several gates and hardware.Some of the property was difficult due to the terrain but the whole project was completed to perfection.Truly a business man of honor and takes pride in his work.


    I can think of a few ways. With every job we have great prices. Very few companies can match our prices. When it comes to roofing we lay every roof the same as we would up north where snow and ice are common. We feel added protection is a good thing! We also offer a 20 year warranty on every new architect shingle roof (5 year on 3 tab). If you loose any shingles and your home owners insurance refuses to pay we fix it FREE OF CHARGE. We also cover any leaks during this time! No house call fees apply! On our fences we "home build" every fence. We do not use store bought panels. This allows us to follow more closely the contour of your ground. Nails over time may work loose as boards are exposed to the elements. On our fences every wooden board is secured with screws AND staples. NOT SIMPLY NAILS! We also only charge for materials as a down payment. Many companies want half down PLUS materials. We feel this is unfair. We sometimes ask for a "payment" schedule when it comes to our labor but never for HALF DOWN!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How much is a redwood fence per foot?

    A redwood fence is a long-lasting home investment that can add beauty and major curb appeal to your home. Redwood fence installation costs are higher than those for pressure-treated pine or cedar, due to the relative scarcity of the wood. Pricing can vary for redwood fence installation costs based on regional labor rates, current prices of redwood planks, the height and linear feet of the fence, and any custom designs or features. Redwood fences, in addition to being beautiful, are naturally more resistant against bugs and rot than less hardy or dense woods. Redwood fences also generally fare well in wet or humid climates due to their natural oils — which also make them easier to maintain. Materials costs per linear foot for redwood planks can range anywhere from $6 to $20 or more, depending on grade, quality and height.

    How much does it cost to put up a chain-link fence?

    Chain-link fence is one of the most affordable options for adding safety and value to your home or business. The national average chain-link fence installation cost is $2,750. Chain-link fences are relatively simple for the pros to install; a fence of less than 150 linear feet can often be put up in under one day. A good rule of thumb is to add an additional workday for each additional 100 linear feet of fence to be installed.

    Chain-link fence installation costs are affected by the fluctuating cost of steel, regional labor rates, the height of fence you select, and the features you select, such as a powder-coated finish. The industry standard is galvanized steel, which is rust- and corrosion-resistant. Galvanized chain-link fence installation cost, including labor and materials, is typically $12 per linear foot. For a more contemporary and elegant option, black powder-coated galvanized chain-link fence might cost approximately $15 per linear foot on average, including materials and labor. For industrial sites or businesses, 10-foot-high galvanized chain-link fences may provide additional security, but also have an added cost. A 10-foot-high chain-link fence could cost $17-$18 per linear foot, including labor and materials.

    How much does it cost to install a vinyl fence?

    A new fence can mean added home value, increased curb appeal, and improved home security. The national average vinyl fence installation cost is $4,600. Vinyl fences have a number of appealing qualities such as their durability, their lasting good looks (they don’t weather like wood does), their versatility, and the fact that they require little to no maintenance such as staining. Fencing companies typically charge per linear foot for vinyl fence installation. They calculate their estimates based on materials to be used, height of fence, linear feet of the proposed fence, and the accessibility of the terrain. If the workers need to level the land before work begins, your vinyl fence installation costs will probably increase. Vinyl fences are typically more expensive than wood or chain-link. For example, one company might charge $19-$22 per linear foot for a basic 6-foot vinyl privacy fence. Another company might charge $25-$35 per linear foot for standard vinyl fencing, while decorative fencing with custom detail could increase that cost to $50 per linear foot. For a 6-foot-high white vinyl privacy fence with two walk-through gates (plus demolition and disposal of the old fence), the cost of the total project could run $8,000. A 4-foot-high, 36-linear-foot white picket vinyl fence with one gate could cost $2,600.

    How much does it cost to install a wood fence?

    Help define your property line, protect your home and yard, and boost your curb appeal with a new wood fence. The national average for wood fence installation cost is $3,250. Wood fence installation costs will vary based on your geographic location, the type of wood you select, the height and style of wood fence you desire, and the condition of your property. Pressure-treated pine is a common and attractive choice that is usually resilient against rot and bugs. Cedar is another budget-friendly option that, although more expensive than pressure-treated pine, can be more affordable than redwood or teak. A wood fence requires maintenance to ensure its long-term health and beauty, so keep future staining and painting costs in mind when you’re calculating fence installation costs. Here are some examples of how height and material affect the approximate cost of wood fences:

    • 6-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence: $15-$17 per linear foot.
    • 4-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence: $13-$20 per linear foot.
    • Cedar fence: $18-$25 per linear foot.
    • 6-foot-high, double-sided (meaning both sides are uniform), pressure-treated pine fence with 6x6 posts: $25 per linear foot.
    • 12-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence with custom detailing: $75 per linear foot.
    • 6-foot-high, pressure-treated pine fence with a custom lattice top: $30-$50 per linear foot.

    How much does it cost to install a fence gate?

    Adding a gate to your fence can be a practical way to provide access to a yard, work area or outdoor living space while ensuring safety and privacy. Gate installation costs will vary based on the gate material you select, the size of your gate, whether you install a fence at the same time, and any special features you’d like to add. Standard opening size for a single-wide gate is 4 feet; a double-wide gate is 8 feet. A small gate may be for decoration; a double-wide gate can be mounted on a rolling caster system to allow access for cars or wide loads. Here are some examples of average fence gate installation costs:

    • 4-foot, single-swing chain-link gate: $100 for materials and installation costs.
    • 28-foot wheeled chain-link gate on a caster system: $800-$1,000 for materials and installation costs.
    • 4-foot, single-swing wood gate: $75.
    • 8-foot double-wide wood gate: $150.
    • 4-foot white vinyl walk-through gate: $300–$400 for materials and installation costs.
    • 8-foot, double-wide white vinyl gate: about $800 for materials and installation costs.
    • White vinyl gate fence more than 8 feet wide: $1,200-$1,500 for materials and installation.
    • Arched black powder-coated aluminum pool gates: $175-$200 per gate.
