Driveway Gate Installation
I did not work through a particular Home Depot Store but through the internet. The estimator arrived when he said he would. He was very professional and gave me a written estimate on this first visit. There was no pressure. I was reviewing other estimates for the same work and told the estimator that I wanted all bids before I made a decision. The other bids were considerably lower. After discussion 'we' decided to go with a large company rather than a local builder as follow up with problems might be easier. Payment was made as I signed the contract, however, the check was not cashed until I had signed off on the project. Paying up front, except for material, does leave me a little uncomfortable. Because of my schedule we had to delay the start of the project from June to August. The scheduler at the sub-contractor, Borg Fence and Decks of Sacramento, was easy to work with. On the day of construction three men arrived with all necessary material. I had done my part, that is, removed all of the plantings on or near the fence line. Had I not done this, the cost would have been more. The men quickly removed the old fence and installed the new metal posts in concrete. The work took most of the day but the fence was complete by the end of the day. The fence is as sturdy as the estimator predicted it would be. It will probably be easier to repair in the future. All fencing that was removed was hauled away by the builders. The area around the fence was clean. Would I pay this much for the same fence again? Probably not. The local builder, that I liked the most, probably would have done an exceptional job as he had completed fences for neighbors.
