    Morgan fixed a few posts on our fence. The fence looks great, he left the area clean, and it was completed when he said it would be. His price was fair, and he was very helpful with suggestions and answering questions that I had.

About this pro

What sets my work apart from other fence companies: - I do not use any nails or metal brackets to build my fences. I only use high quality deck screws. They look better and last much longer than nails. Most of the failures I see with fences is due to metal rail hangers pulling away from the posts. I use a minimum of two 3 1/2 inch deck screws pocket-screwed from each rail to post and then I hide the pocket with the end fence pickets. The result is superior strength and a clean, hidden connection. For pickets, I use 2 deck screws per rail connection all in a beautiful straight line. - I bury the posts at a minimum of 1/3 the total length in hard pack earth and concrete. I then taper the top of the concrete away from the posts to shed water. Making sure the top of the concrete taper is above the soil line and that there is a taper all around the post will keep them from rotting and failing right at the soil line. - If at all possible, I will never raise the final price of the project from the agreed upon bid price. Some contractors may give you a great bid in order to get your business but then find things to keep raising the price throughout the project. This has happened to me as a home owner and I absolutely hate it. The thing I like most about my job is knowing that the products I build are up to my high standards and attention to detail. Because I am a one man company, I can take the time to do things right and not worry about an employee just wanting to get through the day and cutting corners.

    Q & A

    • How did you get started doing this type of work?
      I have always crafted things. I used to weld high end, custom bicycle frames and have always been a woodworker. Whenever I see a fence, I am drawn to it. I have always wanted to make fences and make them better. I see so many broken down fences that could still be functional if they were only built better in the first place. I also get a lot of satisfaction from removing a rotten old fence and putting a gorgeous new one in it's place. Making sure that all of the things the old one was lacking are built into the new one.
    • What types of customers have you worked with?
      Fence and gate replacements. I do some repairs but I find that fences tend to wear out pretty evenly. The whole fence was built by the same company in the same soil with the same materials so, if part of it fails, the rest is not far behind.
    • Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
      I replaced a fence that was built around new trees that had since matured and grown a lot. The fence line was no longer able to avoid them. The client was more than willing to pay extra in order to avoid hurting these trees so I made custom supports for the fence and incorporated the trees into it. The trees now have room to grow without taking the new fence down in the process.
