    I've already rated then once. They were the very best company I have ever hired. I would recommend them to anyone and definitely hire them again should I need their service. They were very professional.

    He then picked it up and brought it to the my home where he took out my old retaining wall. His workers were excellent and they worked hard. I can say nothing but good about him. He later installed a small wire fence (2ft wide) at my property line where deer were able to slip through. He even has

  • Lowe's Home Improvement
    Great service, very professional. The sales person and estimator was very knowledgable about styles of fence, and products available. Because we had waited a few months after the initial estimate to purchase the fence, he came back out a second time to review the estimate and address any questions.

  • Lowe's Home Improvement
    I had two other companies also come and complete estimates for me. The other companies were not timely or detailed in their estimates, and the amounts they quoted were up to $3000 more than the $4000 I ended up paying. Additionally, the Lowe's estimator came and completed the estimate, making sure

    Mr. Kirksway and his crew were uniformly professional: punctual, polite, thorough, and efficient. A crew showed up from 8:30 to 4 every business day until they were done.

    From the start of the job we had problems with the neighbor not wanting the fence to be erected. Our neighbor liked to use our land for their purpose. With our surveys in hand this situation was handled with complete professionalism. Don and Bill are very good at handling any situation. Their

  • DeRenzo Fence Co Inc
    He was okay. We used him because of his price and the fact that he could do it right away. The other guys had to put us on hold for a while. They did a good finishing job. They finished up good. They prepared the ground well where they had dug up and put in the post. They finished it all nice,

  • DeRenzo Fence Co.,Inc.
    UPDATE TO THIS REVIEW, APRIL 2014: Al DeRenzo, Sr., the owner of this company, died in January 2014. To my knowledge, Al Jr. is now running the company, but I am not certain about that. Also, an update on my fence: It survived our long winter, but I found that the magnetic latches on all three of

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.
