They showed up to provide me a quote for a fence I needed in my front yard, but after weeks they never bothered to follow through with sending me the quote . I contacted the contractor and the office but no response.

A&J marked the posts they identified as requiring support and performed as scheduled. Unfortunately, the fence was still leaning heavily in many spots because they did not identify/repair enough posts (notice in the photo only the two sister-ed posts at far right, but remainder of fence still leaning). They acknowledged this, but couldn't schedule a follow up for several months. We ended up hiring a second contractor to finish the job right.

Description of Work
Fence was leaning heavily due to rotted posts, caused by drought followed by heavy rains. We needed either post replacement, or support posts added.

Someone came out, I contacted them 5 days later to ask for the quote and have yet to hear from them. In the meantime I contacted CandJ, received a quote and have since hired them. Not giving them an F because they may be very good at what they do, but the lack of follow through on this is disappointing.

My husband was there watching them working. He was very pleased. They did a fine job. They arrived on time. It took a little extra time for them. Instead of one day, it took two days. My husband got a long time with them and there wasn't any problem. The fence turned out fine. My husband got a quote. They did exactly what they said. We never had a problem with him trying to add extra money or anything else to it. We paid exactly what they quoted us. That was very good.

Like a charm. A and J sent a crew of three plus a foreman who came by regularly; they took out the old fence in a matter of hours and had most of the new fence holes dug by the end of the first day. By the end of the second day they'd set all of the posts and the top and bottom rails, plus they completed almost half of the board-on-board as well as some of the kickboards. They finished the project ahead of schedule by early afternoon on the third day. There were no hiccups, no significant damage to plants (yes, a bush or two got kind of stepped on, but not fatally) and none to trees, and they responded promptly to the concerns of one neighbor. Their cleanup was excellent, and they did a little extra sweeping at my request on the neighbor's brick walk. A and J offers to send invoices to the neighbors if desired (presuming prior agreement with the neighbors), but we did not ask for that service.

Description of Work
We needed to replace our decrepit backyard fence around all three sides, plus a gate. We weren't after anything fancy—we wanted a "good neighbor" fence, i.e., one that looks the same from either side, with a neat and clean design, and board-on-board to eliminate the widening cracks in our old fence. The fence totaled approximately 171 board feet. A and J produced a design that met our needs. As it turned out we kicked the whole project into the following year (2016), and after A and J updated the contract we scheduled the work for early August.

beforestead of The quality of the materials used was excellent but the quality of their work was not as high as the price led us to expect. To stabilize the fence posts, they piled concrete around the base of the posts. This concrete should have been around the base of the posts no higher than ground level. Large staples fired into the front came out the back. Some stones removed to put in fence were strewn about and left there. Concrete stepping stones covering a drain were removed and not replaced (one broken). Scraps of wood and small pieces of paper and wrapping plastic were left on the ground. Valuable tools, which would have been found if a better clean-up job had been done, were left on the ground when they left. The crew (3 men) had limited English and arrived without the foreman so there was difficult communication. Should have at least knocked on the door before walking around the property.

We called in a rush to get this done by our daughters birthday however they said they did not have any available time to do this for 7 weeks. When we expained the importance of the date and that we would put ourselves on the cancel list for an earlier date. They kindly did this and we were very impressed they were there the next week. They arrived promptly at 8 as scheduled. The employees got to work right away. They worked quickly and the foreman came and updated me several times. They cleaned up after themselves and were respectful of my neighbors. The 100 foot fence was finished in the quoted 5 hours and by 2 pm they were cleaning/packing up. Our fence looks great and we are very happy with the product and service. Scott was the service representative that came out and gave us our quote. He was very nice and professional. I would definitely recommend A & J Fencing to friends!

They were in very high demand due to all the storm damage in the area so it took about five weeks before they could get around to my job. It was definitely worth the wait. They arrived promptly and did the whole fence tear down and rebuild in only one day. The gate was very sturdy and the fence was well made. The crew chief checked in with me several times to explain what was happening and make sure I was happy with the construction. They cleaned up completely and left nothing behind except a great fence.

I would not go with A and J Fencing again. Although they may well have a better supervisor and better workers at the current time, our 2006 fence work was horrible. Our next-door neighbor contracted with them and we agreed to pay half the cost of our mutual section of fence. Many problems on our section. The fence posts were not sunk in a straight line so the fence was crooked from the beginning. The fence boards started popping out early on. The concrete in the post holes was not built up and sloped down, so water gathered at the base of the posts and now, only 8 years later, the posts are rotted, the fence is leaning and about to fall over, and needs to be replaced again. The company was not responsive to our complaints. They came back once and installed leaning boards on our side to supposedly straighten the fence and we left them up for weeks, but this was aestheically unacceptable and did not solve the problem. During the job they walked all over plants near the fence and killed them. They left debris on our property. The workers did not speak English and they were not supervised during the job. Very , very shoddy work.

Overall things went well. A and J Fencing was prompt and responsive. I am pleased with the quality of the work and the price was very competitive. A few minor things keep me from giving them a higher rating but I would not hesitate to have them come back to replace any additional fence in the future.

The insurance covered it. They were very reliable and I would highly recommend them. They did an excellent job. They were willing to work with us. The only problem was that we had solar lights up around the fence and we couldn't find the same ones so we used different ones which were better than the original ones. They did a great job. I would definitely use them again.

I had 5 estimates and A&J was the best price. They came out and did gorgeous work. I have gotten many, many compliments from neighbors and business all around. Some people even stop by if we are outside just to compliment the new fence. There has been some settling (which they told me to expect) and they have come out promptly to repair the fence at no charge.

It was fine and great. They were professional and did their work. There were six people that got fences done. They still have to do the staining in 2 weeks. It will be another $850 for the staining. The price was comparable with everyone else. It was $200 more than the other people we got a quote from. We liked the work and the representative they sent out. They were right here on time. It took 2 days to do the work.

He arrived early, took a few quick measurements and inspected the areas in need of replacement, and provided a timely estimate via email free of charge. A&J's estimate was the cheapest estimate, as well as most thorough/detailed, I had received after getting 2 other free estimates done. I am buying a short-sale property and the fence replacement is one of the conditions of sale. Once (presumably) the short-sale process is approved by the seller's bank, I will be using A&J to complete the work. Once that takes place, I plan to provide an updated review once the fence work has been completed.
