“They put in a metal fence that we needed for a dog. They were professional, they were quick, did a great job, and were friendly. I would grade them an A+.”

“Golden Fence installed a basic fence. They were in and they were out. They were courteous. They didn't mind my dog. I had a special needs son that kind of was watching them. They were very polite. Everything was good. Everything seems great so far. I'd give them an A- overall. They were great. I had no problems.”

“They replaced our fence. They were there when they said, they did a great job. They cleaned up after themselves and the job looks great. I would grade them an A.”

“There were no worries at all. We're all good. They've done several things. We're a contractor so they're a sub of ours. It is easy to work with them. It's point and shoot and they get it done. I haven't got an issue with them. They handle pretty much everything and it's never an issue. I can't say anything bad. I'd give them A+ across the board.”

“They were very good. They did like a wooden fence for me. Accurate and kind. I'd give them an A+.”

“It was just a wood fence with steel posts. They were very kind, hands on, and explained to me how things were going to work. I would grade them an A+.”

“I liked them. In general, their response was good. When I had some problems, they came and fixed it really quick in not much time. I'd give them an A+ on everything. They did a regular fence for me.”

“They replaced a couple of bad posts, I liked their response time. They got right back to me when I called, there wasn't even a 1/2 hour delay before somebody was calling me back to see what needed to be done. I would grade them an A.”

“They did a cedar fence for me. It was easy to work with him. The workers did what was expected. I'd give them an A.”

“They did aluminum fence, it was a full installation. The gentleman that I worked with was very attentive to phone calls and worked with us. I would grade them an A.”

“They did a whole fence installation. They were prompt, efficient, and did a good job. They cleaned up after themselves, which is nice. It hasn't been a year, but so far, I would give them an A.”

“They did a fence in my backyard. They got the work done quickly, and they were very professional. I'd give them an A.”

“Golden Fence did a great job. They were very reliable. I had very specific things that I wanted, and they were able to figure out how to do them. The whole experience was great from beginning to end. They did a fence around my pool area, and they also designed and built me a wooden gate and archway into my backyard with lattice work. I love it. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did a privacy fence. I'd give them an A for excellent work, and it is likely that I'd recommend them.”

“I had some repairs done on my fence. I got their name from a buddy of mine down the block who also had an issue. They were very responsive. They came out and took care of it like the next day. I was very happy that they were able to do that. It was a cedar fence, and some of the posts had rotted out and fallen over. They replaced three or four posts, dug them out, poured the concrete, and took care of it. I'd give them an A.”

“I'd give them an A.”

“It was great. Golden Fence was wonderful. He did what he said he was going to do, and he did it in a prompt manner. He got to me right away; he came out and gave me his estimate right on the spot. Then we scheduled a time, which was that same week. They did the work, and I was very pleased. I have an existing chain-link fence, and they replaced a gate. I needed a double gate, and I only had a single, so they did have to dig up one section of it and replace that. They get an A from me.”

“I thought they were efficient, and I thought they did excellent work. The quality of their work was very, very good. I had a fencing repair done, and they had to build more fencing for me at a rental home. The gentleman who came out to do the work came up with some very good ideas, so I was very pleased. Their customer service was excellent. There was no problem at all. I saw them in Best Picks. I saw the name, I called them, and I did some comparisons. The job was not huge, and a lot of people just aren't interested if you're not putting up a great, big fence. Golden Fence took the job even though it wasn't a huge job. They were very efficient and very polite—A+.”

“They were responsive to all of our needs. They put up a six-foot fence in our backyard. Their customer service was excellent. All my neighbors have used them, and after interviewing three fence companies, I decided to go with them, too. I'd give them an A.”

“He was efficient, he did it in the time he said it was going to do it, and he did a good job. He installed a fence about three quarters of the way around my property. The customer service was very good. I chose them because he was recommended by a friend. I'd give them an A+.”

“They got the fence up. It was a wooden fence. I talked to them once. I said, 'OK, go for it,' and it was done. It worked out. They get an A+.”

I found Eric to be very reliable and great on the work. I've never had an issue. They get five stars as far as I'm concerned. They're A+.”

“They were absolutely terrific. They installed a wooden fence. They were very responsive, finished their work quickly and expertly, and cleaned up after themselves. The workmen were very pleasant. I've recommended them to several other people who have found them to be the same. I'd give them an A+.”

“The style of fence they did for me was a five-foot wood fence all the way around. They put a gate in, too. They were very, very nice and professional. They were quick and on time, and they did a great job. The price they quoted me was the price that I paid—you can't beat that. They were good—A+.”

“They did fencing for me. I liked their straightforwardness. They came out, told me what they were going to do, and priced it, and it was done in a day and a half—it was great. I would absolutely use the company again if needed, and I would grade them as an A+.”

“Golden Fence did a great job—it was all great.”

“They did a four-foot, chain-link fence. It was very positive. They showed up on time, they were courteous to the property, and they cleaned up. They were in the area, and we had just moved in. I'd give them an A.”

“Golden Fence did a good job for me. They did the repair I needed and did it well. Everything was excellent. They're A+.”

“They were very, very reliable, and the fellow was very friendly—I believe his name was Erik. He has done a couple of jobs on the fence, and I worked with him very well. We were happy with his men and his work last year, and I am intent on calling him out again this year because our subdivision fence always needs repair. I have been kind of waiting for the Best Picks publication, but I still have his card. Erik answers his own phone. He was always very pleasant. He came out right away and gave us an estimate, and my neighbor and I collected the dues and hired the people to do the fence. He was very good about coming out a few times because we kept changing our mind, and our community will not let you rip down everything entirely—you can only do a section at a time. I'd definitely give them an A.”

“I had a chain-link fence that was falling down, and Golden Fences replaced the whole thing across the whole back of my yard and then down one side. It was good, and I felt like they did that work for me in a reasonable amount of time. I was happy and very pleased. I got them out of the Best Pick Reports, and I think they're the type of company I would call upon again if I needed some additional work. I'd give them an A.”

“Golden Fence was fine. I liked that they were very nice and friendly, and they did a good job. I would use them again. I found them through the Best Pick Reports. I would give them an A rating.”

“Golden Fence did my fence, and it was outstanding. They came on time, did the job, and left on time—it was 1, 2, 3. They did a perfect job, and they were very neat. I'd give them an A+.”

“They provided a great fence, and it came out how I wanted it to. It was custom cedar wood. The level of service and communication was excellent, and I really liked that they were family owned and operated. They deserve an A+ grade.”

“Golden Fence did gate work for me, and they did a good job. They started the work on time, and it was completed on time, and I didn't have to clean up anything afterward. They were so wonderful. I would give them an A+.”

“They installed a fence for me. I had one issue, but I didn't notice or realize it until after the winter. Golden Fence came back out to make the repair, and everything was fine. I would recommend them to people, and I'd give them an A rating.”

“I thought he was incredibly responsive and finished quickly. He was very responsible, as far as I thought. He was really good. The neighbors want part of the fence done by Golden Fence too now. I give them an A+.”

“I used Golden Fence. They were prompt, and they did a really nice job. The person that I spoke with kept his word about everything. They cleaned up really well—I think they went above and beyond. They did a very nice job. I would absolutely use their services again in the future, and I would recommend using their service. I would say they rate an A+. I got Golden Fence out of Home Reports.”

“They replaced most of the fence. The quality of the work was good. I would recommend the company. A+.”

“Golden Fence came on time, got the work done well, cleaned everything up, and did a nice job. They did a replacement for me. I would give them an A+—I thought they were great.”

“Golden Fence was fantastic. Everything they promised was done on time. It was perfect. They did an installation last summer. I would give them an A+.”

“They were on time and on budget, and they did quality work. There's nothing I thought should have gone better. They built my fence in September, and I haven't had any issues with the fence since then. I would grade Golden Fence an A+.”

“They did a good job. They did exactly what they said, and there was nothing at all that I thought should've gone differently. They replaced a fence—they took the old one out, hauled it away, and installed a new one. The fence looks great today. One of the neighbors asked who did my fence, and I referred them. I would give them an A+, and I would definitely use them again.”

“Their communication skills were very good; when they didn't answer the phone, they returned phone calls in a timely fashion. They installed a fence, and it looks great—just like the day they installed it last year. There's nothing I think they could do better. I'd grade them an A.”

“I thought they did a great job. He answered my questions very promptly, and the technicians were very considerate and nice individuals. They did a good job; the fence looks really good. I'm a little bit of a perfectionist, so there are some places where I've noticed that the color doesn't match exactly, but I think it's serving its purpose. I had to call him back once because there were some places where they were actually a little bit loose, but he was more than willing to come out and fix them. I think they're a very conscientious company. I would say they rate an A.”

“They replaced maybe five or six of my wooden posts. The quality was very good. I'd give them an A; I was very happy. I would recommend the company.”

“They did what I asked them to do. They installed the entire fence on the property. The work was done last year, and I haven't had any issues since the work was completed. I would give them an A.”

“They installed a wood fence. I liked how they did the job; the fence came out well. It's been a year, and I haven't had any problems with it. We'll know when the snow goes away. I would recommend them; we actually did recommend one of our neighbors, and she had her fencing done by them, too. I'd grade them A.”

“Golden Fence was great. I liked their responsiveness to my initial calls, and they were professional and kind when he came out. When they did the work, the technicians who came out were respectful. It was good all the way around. They installed cedar fencing; I haven't had any issues with it since they left. I would absolutely recommend calling them. They rate an A from me.”

“They did it quickly and did a quality job. They put up a fence to my standards. It was a seven-foot-high wood fence. I haven't had any issues since the work was done. I would recommend them.”

“They did a good job. It was really hot, I remember, and they did a good job in keeping my dogs in place. It's been holding up all right. I would refer other homeowners to their business.”

“Golden Fence installed a wood fence in my backyard, and I have, by far, the nicest-looking fence in the whole neighborhood. The quality of work was unbelievable to the point where my neighbors all called me to get their number. They're top-notch. It was a fabulous experience, and I'd give them an A+ for sure.”

“Golden Fence did a beautiful job, and I would recommend them to anybody. The fact that they would return my call right away was phenomenal. The workers were great. They're A+.”

“They installed and customized a wood privacy fence. The material used was high quality, and they did a good job. They were very professional and quick in terms of the time it took to put up the fence. We had a couple of conversations, and they were very thorough in asking for customer input versus making assumptions. I would recommend them to others. They deserve an A.”

“Golden Fence showed up and did the job. The fence looks nice. They put a fence up in the backyard. I haven't had to call them back out for any reason at all. I would tell a friend or family member to use them. Their customer service was fine. I think they did a really good job. They were very professional. I would say that they're an A+.”

“The work Golden Fence did for me was excellent. They were prompt. I got a very clear, written estimate, and when I chose to go ahead and authorize the work, they told me when they would come. They came and did the work, cleaned up, and left. I would definitely use their services again, and I would certainly recommend this company to someone else. They deserve an A+.”

“I've got a fence all the way around my property, so I've had a lot of different fence people. When I had Golden Fence, the work was superb. I liked the way they did it and their attitude—the whole ball of wax. I had no problems. I would highly recommend them. The way they lined it up and took their time to do it really stood out. There were no arguments—no hassle. Instead of using old pieces that they could've used, they chose to use brand new pieces, and I was never charged for it. There was no more haggling—no 'We've got to charge you a little more for this.' The original fence was put up with nails, and when the wind's blowing over the years, the nails deteriorate. Now, they have ceramic deck screws that go into the wood. I happen to have a box of them, and they went, right away, and used those rather than using the nails they got banging out the door. They cleaned up and had a great attitude. These guys, in particular, did a great job laying things out. Where they had to go was not an easy job, because I have a koi pond. These guys were meticulous, where they didn't beat on the little shrubs or plants. I've got work for them again this spring. I got a couple more posts, because like I said, I go all the way around my property with cedar, and they're going to replace it again. I spoke to Eric, but the one who did my particular work was his brother; I believe his name was Robert. It was a three-man crew, and they did beautiful work. They're going to get my business again this spring. Give them an A+; he's top of the line.”

“They were good. They repaired my cedar fence. They did a great job. The workers were good people. They were hardworking, knowledgeable, and polite. I'd use them again. They did it faster than I thought they would. They seemed honest, and they're reliable. They're A+.”

“Golden Fence did a very good job. They installed a couple of fences for me. The technicians were fine—very courteous. They respected my property. The communication with this company was very good. They're A+.”

“Golden Fence was great. They were awesome, and they did an awesome job. They fenced in our backyard. It was cedar, and they did a great job. They gave me the information on how to care for my fence; they were very informative about it.”

“They were OK. They seemed to do a decent job. We didn't have any problems; it was fine. It was a fence replacement. I would probably recommend them to other people. They were very respectful of my home and surroundings. I would give them an A+.”

“Golden Fence does good work. This was the second time I used them. They put a wooden fence in my backyard. Everything was fine. The cleanup was good. They just provided good service, and they're very friendly. I would give them an A.”

“Golden Fence did a great job. They're good guys. They worked their fanny off, and they did everything that I expected. They did fencing—just what I expected to have been done. I absolutely believe I received good, quality work from them. They get an A+.”

“They were responsive, they were efficient, and they did what they said they were going to do. I never really saw them; they were in, out, and done. It was excellent customer service. They completed the work in a reasonable time frame. I would recommend the company. I would say they're an A+.”

“It was Golden Fence that we used. They did fine. They did a good job. They were replacing a small section. We had a tree taken down and needed the fence fixed.”

“I had them do some gates and stuff for me. It was really good. It was a new installation. They were on time, they did what they needed to do, and everything was fine. I would use them again in the future. I would say they were an A.”

“Golden Fence did work for us. They were very knowledgeable about the products they were offering. They did a good job installing. It was done in the last couple of years. I've used them twice, actually. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did a wonderful job. It was a wooden fence. They communicated with me on how to take care of my fence. I wasn't here when the workers came out; they did it when I wasn't around. I heard about them from a friend of mine who uses Golden Fence; he's a contract builder, and he uses them for all their fences. Everything was perfect. They're A+.”

“I thought Golden Fence did a fine job. They were responsive, and they did their work professionally and quickly. They installed a fence. They came out and gave me an estimate, and I hired them. The workers were very professional and very friendly. I would give them an A.”

“They did a fantastic job. They repaired a fence. I would say they were an A+. The technicians were great. The quality of the work was very good. I would tell others to hire them.”

“Golden Fence did work for us about a year ago. Everything was good. We didn't have any problem. They fixed some of the wood and refinished it. I felt like they did that job in a reasonable amount of time; they responded to my initial request promptly as well. They did a good job, so they're an A.”

“They did a good job. It was a wooden fence that they repaired. The job was very good. I'm a tradesman, so I know what looks good and what looks bad.”

“They put up the fence in our neighbor's backyard, and they built the fence piece by piece. It wasn't, like, a sheet of fencing put up; it was like each piece was added individually. We asked them to do ours too. They came and put ours in on probably one of the hottest days of the summer; it was over 100 degrees. They did a fantastic job. They cleaned up everything and were very personable. There was one, little, back corner that they enclosed, so our dog wouldn't get out, and they didn't charge us for that little, extra piece. They're very, very nice people and very accommodating and helpful. It was just an excellent experience. I would say they're an A+.”

“Golden Fence did work for me. I liked how the job was done. They showed up on time. The people were very nice. Everything's good. They cleaned up well after their service. I would refer them to others.”

“Golden Fence put up some posts—not a lot. It wasn't a big job, but they did a nice job, and they were professional and all that. I would use them again. They gave a quote, and then, they came back later and finished it up. The workers were very nice. They seemed knowledgeable. The cleanup was good. They were an A.”

“We liked them very much. They came when they were supposed to, and they did what they were supposed to do. That was good. They were very, very nice. It was over the summer. It came out good. We like our fence. Everything has held up fine so far; I wouldn't expect a problem on a fence that soon, anyway. They cleaned up; they did not leave a mess. They were good about the cleanup. They were just very nice and very accommodating. I would say they should get an A.”

“We had a great experience with them. They took out an existing fence, and they put a new chain link in exactly like we wanted. Some of the posts had risen up because of the cold weather, and they sunk those for us. They were very, very nice, courteous people. I really can't say enough about their work. I'd have to give them an A+.”

“I had them fixed. They were absolutely fine. They were OK.”

“We've used them before, but we got our fence when we first moved in. One of the workers accidentally broke a septic tank tile, but they did pay for the repair and, then, finished up the fence job, so in the end, we were completely satisfied. We rented the house before, and the landlord had used them to put a fence up for them; we just knew of their work, and that's why we hired them to do this for a new home. It was cleaned up very nicely. They were honest, hardworking, and on time. I would give them an A.”

“I love the company. They did a great job. It was a fence installation for us.”

“Golden Fence is the best. They’re great—absolutely great. They were lighting fast, and their quality of work was very good. They built a new fence with two openings for my gates. The workers knew exactly what they were doing, and the cleanup was excellent. I’d say A+.”

“As far as I’m concerned, they were absolutely excellent. I’ve had other fence work done here, and they were far superior to anybody else I’ve used—far superior in their workmanship, their personality—everything.”

“I definitely had a positive experience with Golden Fence. I had them put up a fence, and the overall quality of work is excellent. The fence looks gorgeous. They just walk you through the whole process, and if there are any questions, they ask first instead of later, so that you don’t run into problems, which I appreciated.”
