the person who checked for the scope of the project was not the one who did the project, it was kind of frustrating for the gate that i wanted, The installation was great, it was a good product. The price was higher than what i have expected, so i need to be involved in talking with management to get the product i've expected.

Nothing but delays. Three sent out - one for iron fence and gate, one for aluminum and chain link fence, and one to fix the crew that installed the chain link and aluminum fence. Quality of work of the crews are subpar and full of attitude...especially the iron fence and gate crew. As of this review, 8/29/17, they are more than 6 weeks behind and just called to say they will be another 3 weeks behind. Sales person, Silver D., was unable to pass along the accurate work order to the office and the install crews. Pedestrian gate installed is not leveled and therefore does not close properly. At times, Silver would not return messages. Started to dealing with their manager, Jim, 8 weeks ago. Jim is a very nice man but is unable to keep the crews on schedule. NEVER EVER USE THEM. I would not used them ever again. in the future, I would rather pay more to get the job done on time and with quality.

Do NOt hire this company for anything. They built a deck and stairs several years (5) ago on my rental house. They used the cheapest wood, nails and everything else they needed to complete job. I am now replacing the wood and nails for this deck. Everything is falling apart now. Nails coming out and wood spintering and rotting. Half way thru the job, they ask for a final payment before the job is complete. Don't pay them a cent til its done or you won't see them again. Long companies is a rip off. Don't use them for anything or you will be sorry.

I ended up not doing business with them. They came out and gave a quote, but we went with someone else. I think we put down a deposit that was refundable and then we got it refunded. My only complaint was the quote was high. Other than that the quote was professional and whatnot. I had no complaint about his punctuality.

Not well. See above. I would not hire these people if they were the last available. I would do it myself if I had to. See review above

Description of Work
I have never written a review, but I am going to start. Consider carefully whether to use these folks. "Estimator" was nice and on time. Gave me 3 prices for roof replacement depending on how fast I signed on. Really? Price is price. The highest estimate was $35,000. They called it "investment." Yes--in their vacations and kids' college. Really? Then, they refused to provide a written estimate for scope of work that included amount of and price of exact materials, by linear feet, or item (or even options), so I could compare with other detailed estimates that are the norm. For all I know, they could have written in anything once I signed on. The total estimate was more than 3x other estimates for same general shingling product and work. First he said he would not charge me for plywood ($10,000 for plywood sheets that cost $18.00 a sheet at Home Depot, and I might need 5? Really?). Then he added $10000 back in to total costs--for PLYWOOD!!!Overall cost of roof replacement would have been more than $3400 per hour for 1 day of work. Hm, They pay roofers between $15.00 and $25.00 per hour around here. Add for overhead, and you do not get $3400 per hour for a relatively standard, middle sized roof for this area. "Quality control" supervisor said would provide a real, written estimate of materials. They never did. They never took or shared pictures. I have them anyway. Buyer beware!

The worst company I ever hired to have work done at home. They charge an arm and a leg, deliver late, do not care for their customers, do not provide advice and just stopped caring about customers. I ended up hiring another company who did the work for a third of the price and two times the quality. This after I had my gate lying on the backyard for two months because of the Long Fence incompetents.

Long Fence did an excellent job. The crew arrived in the time windows that was promised. They asked a few questions, walked me through what they were going to do. Then they did the job. They finished sooner than expect and left the area clean. Long's estimate was not the lowest. But I choose to go with them because I felt the the sales person actually listened when I raised issues. Some of the others when say "okay" then write up an estimate that clearly ignored my concerns.

BUYER BEWARE. Got a quote from Long fence along with several other companies (about 500? of fencing). Decided to go with Long Fence because of a ?25 Year Warranty? and a 20% off coupon found on their website. Went to sign the contract and presented the 20% coupon and the sales guy said ?I?ve already applied your discounts?. He said ?I?ve already given your 30% off list?. I was shocked because it did not mention a list price and indicate that a certain percentage had been reduced anywhere on the contract. The quote did say ?discounts applied? but without detailing what discounts, that language is meaningless. Long story short, I told him I needed more time to look at the other quotes because this coupon wasn?t applicable and the sales guy acted like I was wasting his time. He tried to take the unsigned contract and I had explained that I wanted to keep it so I could see how it compared to the other quotes. He reluctantly gave it to me and said ?The contract is only good if I?m available to meet you in the next 10 days.? How sophomoric. He then packed up his things and forcefully shut the door behind him. Talked to the manager and he had an excuse for everything. He acted like it was a privilege to do to business with their company. BOTTOM LINE: LongFence coupons are meaningless because they put a catch-all on their quotes ?discounts applied? so they don?t have to honor them. Through all of this, the rude sales guy, the games, the manager not taking any accountability, I?m really glad I figured out the way they do business and their business integrity on the front end. I would really be disappointed if I choose to go with this company and there was a problem with the fence.

The company employee was professional during the estimate. He came out on a Saturday as promised to provide the estimate. He said he'd have the estimate back by Monday which it was. The price was completely outrageous. The original quote came back at over $1,200 but said they gave me a holiday discount and reduced it to $940. Based on the amount of work and calculating prices from some of their other jobs, I really didn't expect the estimate to come back much over $500. I replied back to the quote and the company got back to a few days later and reduced the price t0 $900. I replied back and they basically left it at "take it or leave it". BUYERS BEWARE! Here is the break down. Their average price per square foot is between $23 and $35 per square foot (this is based off looking at cost and reviews from other customer. So, given the fact that my job was so small I figured the price per foot would likely be a little higher. This is there quote for 14 feet of a 1/4 cedar (plank) fence $1,200 = $86 per foot $940 = 67 per foot $900 = 65 per foot.

Provided an estimate for a 3 ft by 14 ft 1/4 cedar fence to as a divider between me and my neighbor.

I had been evaluating venders in order to have a deck added to my home. I had had a Representative come to the house in order to take measurements and make recommendations. He provided a reasonable quote and it was left to me to follow up when i was ready to kick off the project. About 2 weeks later I had followed up to let them know I was ready to kick of the project. The gentleman that initially came out had to refer me to another guy due to his license expiring in DC. I then spoke with the other DC representative who wanted to come do his own walk through the following week and asked me to send them my plot information. I sent the plot information and did not receive any response. I sent a follow up email message to confirm receipt with no response. I called the DC representative the day before he was to come do the walk through and he THEN told me that due to the plot I was not able to get a deck. I was disappointed that 1. I had to be the one to track him down for an update and 2. that they simply said they could not get a permit due to the plot. I later followed up in order to get additional information in order to see if there were any other options and got no response. Again, very disappointed in the service in responsiveness. Back to the drawing board.

Description of Work
When it was time to start the project they were not responsive and completely dropped the ball in regards to responding to phone calls and emails and apparently were not interested in the project as the representatives did not get back to me when i was officially ready to get started.

Ultimately, the product came out as promised so no complaints there. However, the journey to get the fence details ironed out and prepared for installation was so difficult that I would not use Long Fence again. To begin, our sales representative, Robert Brooks, showed up on time and gave us a good presentation on what Long Fence could provide. At first, the price he provided was out of our budget, so he went back to his management and was able to work the fence into our budget. We thought we were off to a great start but it was all downhill from there. As we began to hone in on the specifics, we would ask questions via email and Robert would only answer half of them, which lead to multiple rounds of us having to ask the same question over and over again. Then it became apparent that Robert was not familiar with the product lines he was selling as the original quote was actually for something that did not exist within our specifications, which he was aware of from the start. This led to another round of unanswered questions, which became very frustrating. Finally after a month of back and forth, we had a signed contract but it should have not taken this long to determine exactly what we needed. When the contact was signed, Robert promised the fence would be installed by a certain date and that he or someone else from Long Fence would call us one week before the fence would be installed to confirm the installation would occur as planned. Long Fence sent someone out from their installation team about two weeks prior to the promised installation date to conduct more precise measurements, so it appeared that everything was moving along smoothly. However, as the installation date neared, we did not hear from Long Fence so we decided to call them to find out if they would be able to keep their promise. We eventually got in contact with Vicky from their customer service department who told us that the fence had not been acquired/manufactured yet and it would not be installed by the date Robert promised. Rather than attempt to fix this error, Vicky made us feel that our expectation to have the fence installed by the date Robert promised was unreasonable, which is quite ridiculous in my opinion as the date was promised to us in writing from an employee of their firm. Vicky continued to investigate the issue and then provided us another installation date, which was three weeks after the date promised by Robert. As the new installation date neared, we once again did not hear from Long Fence. Upon following up with Vicky, we found out that they would miss the installation date once again. At this point in the relationship, Vicky and Long Fence began to take ownership of their problems and offered us a $250 discount for the trouble we experienced thus far and provided a new installation date two weeks later. Finally, the fence was installed on this third date. The installation crew was professional, punctual, and did a fantastic job. The fence is great quality and looks fantastic on our porch. Even with a great product, I would not work with Long Fence again for my fencing needs as the amount of legwork we needed to put in to keep Long Fence on track was absolutely disappointing.

Long Fence's quote was right in line with everyone else, but their professionalism won me over. The sales team and office staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. The subcontractor team that did the installation started later than we expected but finished the job in 1 day instead of the 2 days we were quoted. The fence looks fantastic and it is straight as an arrow. The gates are sturdy and only minimal debris was left behind. I am completely satisfied with the work and I am impressed with the extensive warranty Long Fence offers. I would use them again for any fencing needs.

The fence is gorgeous, but the workers left with the job not finished. There were nails hanging out, which were a potential hazard for young children and in one place the fence had not received the topped off rail at the top of the slats. Gates also rubbed together when closed causing friction and sometimes were very stiff when trying to open. Long Fence promised to send the same crew back out. A couple of days later the crew, who were obviously annoyed, came and hammered in about 50% of the nails which were hanging out and finished the area that need to be topped off. The rubbing gates were not addressed, and there still remained at least 20 nails sticking out of the fence by about an inch! I called Long Fence back a second time and it was a real struggle to have it looked at, eventually they came out reluctantly and saw the gates were rubbing and attempted to fix it. Apparently both gates had been put in at angle which caused the two sides of the gate to meet at the top end and be further apart at the bottom and so needed to be reinstalled. This never happened, and with all the fuss it required to have them come out again, I gave up. A gorgeous looking fence, but now 2 years on the wood has split where the gates were rubbing and one of the gates has warped during that time, and has split entirely at the base. Not impressed at all, and now that we are moving we will look elsewhere for a fence at our new home.

When the deck was first installed, it looked fine. But now, 6 years later, it looks 15-20 years old. There are steps that are loose and tilted, there are rotten boards, the rails are cracked. I reached out to them to fix the issues when they first began and I don't feel that they handled it the best way. I feel that they could have worked more to attempt to satisfy my needs but they only told me that I had done something wrong. I also don't feel that they used treated wood or the correct type.

They did an excellent job. They are local to Maryland. It is a family-owned company. It took them about 10-hours to complete the job. They came at about 9 o’clock in the morning and they finished it about 7. The fence is fantastic. It is beautiful. I actually found them because there were a couple of offers on Angie’s List that were advertised as being 50% or 60% discount off of the regular price and I wanted to work with a local company. I called Long Fence and asked them for a comparison quote and the quote that they gave me was actually lower than the discounted price from other companies.

I know that Long Fence provides many different services and that the original companies had been divided into different companies. I can only speak to the services I received. The gentleman who came to give me an estimate was very pleasant and easy to deal with. This was about 6 weeks before Thanksgiving, and I asked if the job could be completed before Thanksgiving as one of my guests had difficulty climbing stairs and the hand railing would help. The job was completed before Thanksgiving. I did not get estimates from anyone else except Long Fence, so I don't have a price comparison.
