    Customer service was outstanding, great communication every step of the process even after work was completed, very friendly staff and workers, and great workmanship. We’re very happy with the results!

  • JM Decks & Fences
    Our project was a large screened porch with a deck. We were so pleased with the porch that we had JM build a six foot fence for our back yard. While these were large projects, JM Decks & Fences were five-star throughout. We had contacted several contractors before JM: some never responded, others thought the job was too large or too complicated. From the outset, Antonio from JM made it clear that he and JM knew what they were doing, from the materials they would use, to the slope and configuration of the roof, to the size of the porch and deck, to details like layout of the floor boards. From the consultation to the completion of the project, Antonio was with us throughout. The proposal and contract that spelled out the details of the project and pricing was comprehensive and very professional. Christopher in the front office kept us posted on timelines, inspections, and any follow-up items. Their electrician made some suggestions on lights and outlets that have greatly enhanced our enjoyment of this new space. The carpenters that built the porch/deck are true craftsmen: the details in the build are truly impressive and special. We cannot say enough about how good these guys are. We have gotten compliments from neighbors, inspectors, and other contractors on the quality of job. We absolutely love our new outdoor living space! Once the porch and deck were completed, we asked JM for pricing to replace our old backyard fence. Like the porch, we got the same professional estimate, detailing materials and style. Within a month we had a brand new 6-foot fence with gates. The fence shows the same high quality craftsmanship and materials as the porch. Overall, JM Decks and Fences are the real deal: awesome service, outstanding craftsmen, reasonable pricing. Five stars all the way

  • Almost Paradise, LLC
    Rick and his sons did an amazing job! They were responsive, flexible, and went out of their way to get my fence up quickly after approval from our HOA. They were prompt, pleasant and enjoyable to have around! The fence looks great and we couldn't be happier!! I would definitely recommend them and hope to use for another property in the near future!

  • Raleys Fence Co.
    Bill is awesome to work with. He came when he said, finished the project quicker than we anticipated, and the quality is unmatched. The pricing is very competitive as well. If you need a fence, I wouldn’t call anyone else and I’ll recommend this company to anyone in the future that asks.

  • JM Decks & Fences
    JM Decks and Fences did an amazing job on replacing my entire deck and finishing my privacy fence in the back yard! I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! I worked with Christopher on all of the details from the initial consultation to the design, meeting with inspectors and execution of the job! The guys who did the work were so meticulous and professional. They went the extra mile and put a nice little mounding around each post and that added detail really made it shine. Thanks so much for the best contracted experience I’ve had since moving to NC

Fencing FAQ

  1. How much does it cost to install a fence?

    Answer: The average cost to install a fence is $2,600. A variety of factors will impact the overall cost of fencing installation, such as the length of the fence, the materials you choose, and local labor costs. Fencing projects using the lowest cost materials and with lower labor costs can cost as little as $1 to $6 per linear foot, while projects using the highest cost materials and with higher labor costs may be as high as $15 to $45.

  2. Do I need a permit to build a fence around a yard?

    Answer: Whether you’ll need a permit to build a fence around your yard will depend on your city or county's local codes. Many metropolitan and suburban areas require a permit to install most fencing, but they may not for fences situated behind a house as opposed to in front of it or fences that don’t run within a certain distance of the road. To find out if you’ll need a permit to fence your yard, reach out directly to your local government office.

  3. What is the cheapest fence to install?

    Answer: The cheapest fencing to install is chain-link fencing. Chain-link fencing is typically cheaper than other fence types because the materials cost less, and installation is generally quicker and easier than other options. Chain-link fencing is affordable, easy to install, and low maintenance. However, it’s usually considered less secure than other options and doesn’t increase resale value as much as fences made of different materials.

  4. Is a wood or vinyl fence cheaper?

    Answer: Wood fences are generally cheaper than the cost of vinyl fences. While the cost of materials for wood and vinyl fences is usually very similar, the labor cost associated with installing a vinyl fence is higher. Wood fencing is also easier to install than vinyl fencing, making it possible to save money by making wood fence installation a DIY project. It’s also possible to DIY install a vinyl fence.

  5. What is the life expectancy of a vinyl fence?

    Answer: Vinyl fencing can be expected to last between 10 and 30 years. Vinyl fencing is generally low maintenance, but proper care will ensure it lasts as long as possible. Its long life span and high return on investment make vinyl fencing a popular option for many homeowners.

  6. What type of fence adds to the property value?

    Answer: Installing quality fencing, no matter the fence type, will generally add value to your property. In general, fences made of longer-lasting, lower-maintenance, and more attractive materials—like wrought-iron, composite, or vinyl—add more value to a property than fences made of lower-cost or less attractive materials, like chain-link. To ensure your fencing adds as much value to your home as possible, be sure it’s properly permitted, approved by your homeowners association (if you have one), and installed properly.
