Default Fence Recommendations?

Hey guys,

My fence was blown over as a result of the bad storms we got a few months ago.

After debating 6ft vs 8ft, I've made up my mind on doing it right from the start.

I'm looking for someone that can install a 8ft board on board with an electric sliding gate. The best quote so far was $10,800 which includes all materials and labor.

The communication and follow up with this individual has been a little sluggish so I wanted to reach out and see if you guys had any first hand experience with a local company that does good work.

Please let me know and I'll give them a call for a estimate.

Thank you

Word of caution - if you don't want it to happen again, make sure they use metal fence poles into concrete and screws instead of nails.

Try T-Bar in Arlington. I have never used them, just gotten a quote, and blew it off, was for a neighbor who would not fix their fence. They have done a lot of work in my hood, and it's all first class.

Thanks guys!

They are using concrete and metal poles.

I'll ask the about the screws tomorrow!

They are building it tomorrow and I'll give you guys my feedback once it is completed.
