“We've used them for twenty years, so I love that they're responsive. I love that when they didn't—if they could save me a call on coming out and a service charge, they've guided me on the phone how to fix my gate opener, which I think is unusual today and wonderful. They've always been very pleasant, so I would highly recommend them. They're A+. My daughter now lives in the house where I lived and when they call them, they say they know the address. They don't know me, but they know the address.”

“They installed a gate for me back in 1994. That was the best of services, and I still use them. I would recommend them highly. They put in a fence and a gate—it goes all the way around my property. It was excellent—nothing other than the wear and tear things that you have to redo, come back and repair, weather. That's all. Jon, who I think took over from his father, is an excellent person. I can't speak more highly of him.”

“I liked the work. They installed a new picket fence, and then they added a trellis to an existing fence. So they did both. I would grade the overall experience with an A. They could improve their customer service, in terms of scheduling, communication, things of that nature, but the work itself was incredible.”

Review by

“When you have a problem, you can schedule with them, and they will show up when they say they will. I've had them install wood fences, metal fences, electronic gates—all of those. I'd give L&C Fence & Gate an A+.”

Review by

“They did very good work. They did what they said they were going to do for a certain date and for the quoted price. They did repair on a wrought iron gate and fence area. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by

“They all seemed to be very personable and understanding of what needs to happen. They did a repair. I'd give them an A-. I think punctuality is where they slacked a little bit.”

Review by

“They did good workmanship, and the product was as promised. We were satisfied overall. They installed a new chain link fence. I'd give them an A.”

“The sales guy was really good. I had a new 25-foot gate installed, an automatic gate that opens and closes. I'd give them an A+.”

“I liked that I got a fence. They were extending an existing fence. It didn't go all the way around, and now it does. I'd give them an A.”

“They installed a new gate for our driveway. The end result was very professional looking, and it works well. I'd give them an A.”

“L&C Fence installed an electrical gate. They were responsive to any issues that we had and got back to it and got it done quickly. I would grade the overall experience with an A.”

“They repaired a chain link fence because a tree had fallen on it. They got there real quick and got it done—it was an emergency. Nice guys. I'd give them an A. I would recommend them.”

“L&C Fence & Gate were great. They replaced a backyard fence for us. They were easy to work with. They showed up when they said they were going to show up. They listened to any concerns I had, and they took care of it. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
08/21/2017

“Wonderful. They built fences for me and also fixed the electric gate. And Alex, I think he's the one that does that, he was wonderful. Friendly people. I feel like it's a reasonable price, they're on time, they do their work and get out of there. They're very efficient—A+.”

Review by
08/21/2017

“They came out to check on my electronic gate motor. The first time they were on time, nice, and helpful. They didn't exactly solve the problem, but I think they felt like that would be the case. Then the second time, I actually called three or four times, and they scheduled the appointment and no one showed up and so I sort of gave up on it. I'd give them a C.”

Review by
08/21/2017

“They added a dog run, but they also put the fence on this property when we purchased it, so they did a great job with both fences. The customer service was really good. The workers were great. The guy who came out to actually give me the estimate and talk to me about my fencing options was great, very professional. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
08/21/2017

“I have a moving gate on the backside of my property into the alley, and they were responsible for the fence and the gate. I'm a realtor and I close about $5-6 million worth of property a year, and I deal with lots of fence companies. So the best is when they do what they say they're going to do at a reasonable price, and I don't have to worry about them showing up or doing it right. So they were great—A+.”

“L & C Fence & Gate tore down an old fence and erected a new one according to our request. They did an outstanding job with a crew; fast and efficient work, good cleanup after the fact. I would recommend them to anyone in need of a new fence or a replacement.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“They were good guys. They were doing a wrought iron double swing gate for the driveway. They were quick to get the job done. From the time I went in, they had a guy come out and measure it within a week. I'd grade it an A. I would recommend them.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“They came more than once, but I think one of the last times they were fixing the motor on the automated fence. I liked that when I called them they came out even though I wasn't on the property. They took care of it and they were comfortable billing me. I'd grade it an A.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“It was a gate. Nothing in particular stood out. Nothing extremely negative or positive. I'd grade it an A-. I had to replace some of their components because they were poor quality. The rollers, for example, were pieces of metal that had to be replaced pretty quickly.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“They  put up a new fence and took down the old one. The sales guy, Donny, was excellent. He put it in layman's terms; I don't understand that stuff, so it was great. The way they dealt with the city and permits was good, and they gave me a heads up on what could happen. They did a great job. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“They put a wooden fence door up, a passage door. I liked the service. This has been a year ago. They came out quick. I called them for an appointment; they came out, gave me an estimate, came back out in a few days, and put the door up. It was good service, and good work. It was A+ work.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“They did the whole fence. It was pretty good. I'd say it was a B. I don't think the grade of the wood was that great. The fence is already breaking, so I'm going to have to give them a lower grade on the quality of the products used.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“It was a gate. Nothing really in particular stood out. They were really responsive. I had lost my gate clicker, so I needed a new one pretty quickly, and they were able to come out right away and get it done. I'd say it's an A+.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“It was either work on my fence or work on my electric gate. Positive wise, I guess they were prompt and came on time. Overall I would say it was a B+. They're very expensive. If price weren’t included, I would give them an A.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“Everything was fine. It was a backyard fence. There was nothing that stood out. I wasn't really here at the time they did this. I'd probably use them and recommend them. This is their second time to do it here at this house.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“I thought they did a good service. They fixed an outdoor gate with a lock. They were prompt and they did what they said they would do. A+ for them. I've had a lot of vendors that I would not, but I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“They  put in a brand new fence and they did the electric gate. They were excellent at follow up. They came in at price. They did a wonderful job. I have nothing to say but good things. They are worthy of an A grade.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“They did a gate repair. They were really friendly and helpful. It did take them a few times to get the part they needed, but once they were there, they were really fast and took care of it. I'd grade it an A.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“They built a fence. The craftsmanship was good. I'd grade it an A. They left something in the ground. I called them to come and get it and nobody ever came. I would definitely recommend them to other people.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“It was a very, very long time ago. They fixed an existing gate an iron gate and probably some locks on the gate. I've used them several times so obviously I like them. I'll give them an A+ across the board.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“They did a good job. They added to a chain link fence. They were efficient. They got it done on time and it seemed like they had a large crew when they did it, so it didn't take very long. I'd grade it A+.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“They took down a fence and replaced it with a new fence. The service of the gentleman that came out to do the appraisal was excellent. He was good and the workmanship was great. I'd grade it an A.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“They were good. I had a lot of work done through a contractor and the contractor chose to use them. We had our yard re-fenced, a privacy fence, and a gate that would open up in the driveway that can be closed from the backyard. They were excellent. I didn't have any problem with them at all, so I'd give them an A+. We sold that house, and they did a great job. We didn't have any problems with our fence at all.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“I really do like them. They're thorough, honest, and quick to respond. They've been out three or so times. The motor of the gate had gone out on the arm and it was causing our electric gate to go back, hit the fence, and then came back hitting my car. They put a new arm on it and had to come back to adjust it, but then the battery had gone out on it. I would grade it an A.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“They did a rolling gate. I did not work with them that much, but I know that my husband did. The gate wasn't opening that great when you would push the button, and they tried to make that process better by putting an antenna. They tried to correct the situation. I think it was an A. The cleanliness didn't really matter because it was an outside thing.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“They installed a couple of gates. The fellow that contacted me, their sales guy, was very professional and up front about things. Then I changed the order on him, and he had no issue with that either. The workers got in, did the job, and didn't fiddle around or take too much time. They did do a good job. I'd say an A.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“They did excellent work. I was very happy with them. They installed a new electric gate and fencing that tied into my existing fencing, all iron. Their professionalism, their time, their communication, the quality of their work, and the information they shared stood out to me. They were reliable. I'd grade it an A for sure.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“There were definitely some minor maintenance items that we need to take care of, but I don't necessarily attribute that to anything other than wear and tear. I don't know if what we're experiencing is normal after this length of time. They did a full-blown large fence for us with a lot of linear footage. I did my fence first and then a year later, I did my gate. I don't feel like they were the same. It was an A for both.”

Review by
09/14/2016

“I had an electric gate that they did do a great job on. Everything was perfect, but then we had to ask for a small walk through gate that just latches. It's made out of aluminum and we had asked that they put it in concrete, the posts, so that it would not tip and lean and they did not do that and they have not come back and fixed it. There was one part that was very positive and everything's been great, the motorized fence but then the walk through fence, it was very negative because they still haven't fixed in the gate so it won't closed properly. I'd grade them a C+.”

Review by

“I've used them four times on three different properties. I got a townhouse that was on a corner in Dallas, TX and they put a fence around the two sides that were on the corner. They came in later and put a little half fence in an area I needed and added another gate area. At another property, they have built an iron handrail and put in a black wrought iron four-foot fence in a courtyard. They replaced our entire wooden fence here, which was a fairly good size, about 22 square foot home. They have a good price, they hear what you're asking them to do, and they've been very efficient in getting everything installed. They used stainless steel nails instead of wood screws that rust and run down the wood. The way they put it together, it lasts. The first fence they put in for me is still standing after 2 plus years, so we're hoping that that's the same here. They use quality materials. In that entire time, three out of five times at least, I've worked with the same guys. They keep their staff. They're not running their staff off. I was looking for a Dallas company and their office is not far away from where I'm asking them to do the work. You get a better price when you find a provider that is in your own community or close to it. In a city like Dallas, you ought to be able to find a Dallas company. I had to sell my grandmother's house. They had to replace some old chain-link fences. They had to come in to a 5-year-old property and put in a new chain link gate. I'd give them an A.”

“They were putting up a new fence for me. I have a mosquito nix system. They cut that line and didn't fix it, and they cut a main line of my sprinkler system and they did not fix that and that cost me over $2, it cost me $24. I tried to tell the owner and I've left two messages for him to call me. He has not returned my call. They were supposed to, there was a fence, little fence around my air conditioning unit that they were supposed to fix and they didn't do that. I didn't even bring the sprinkler system up because they knew the mosquito nix issue was there and they just left it so they weren't going to fix the sprinkler system. Their work was fine. It was just what they did and didn't fix and they haven't come back and done my little fence around my air conditioning unit even though they told me they'd be there three times already. I'm out $24 on the sprinkler alone. I would not use them again, but their quality of work on the actual fence was lovely.”

“They're always great. I always call L & C when we have trouble with our gate. They're easy to work with, I can call them, and they come out. I've never had anything but an A+ with them.”

Review by

“It was on an electric motor gate in the back of my house. They're probably the only people around town that even work on an old system like the one I had. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“They had to do something with the gate motor. The  gate got knocked off its track and the motor burned up basically. They were super friendly and helpful. They deserve an A.”

Review by

“The fence in the back collapsed. They had to clear out the old fence, some overgrown bushes, and then they put in a new fence along the back of the creek. They deserve an A.”

Review by

“They fixed a gate switch for us. It was fine. It's still working; that's the good news. I'd give them a B. I wouldn't recommend them because I didn't meet with them.”

“They put in a new fence for one side of our house for me, and it was fabulous. They’ve done a bunch of work for my daughter on her house. So everything—they're the best. They're responsive to what we wanted, and we had a little problem with mice build up this past winter that messed up the electric gate. I talked to them, they fixed it, and they said this is just part of our guarantee—we're not going to charge you. They were really good and like my wife said, we've used them since 1974. It's the only fence company I would go to in Dallas. A+++”

Review by
10/01/2015

“They did some fencing work, I believe. I think it was 2013 that they did the work on my fence. They just seemed to do a great job. I've had other people look at it and give their opinion on it, and they felt it was a good job. I have a magazine, Best Pick Reports—I'm grateful for that. L&C Fence is definitely an A.”

Review by
10/01/2015

“The major work was done in 2008, but they've been back to make some repairs. They are responsive, and they do a good job when they come out. They initially built the fence and security gate at my house. They're very positive, they've been great at whatever they've done, and I've called them back. I've never had any problems with what they've done. I would give them an A.”

Review by
10/01/2015

“Maybe with the ice, they came and de-iced it. I remember that they got out there pretty quickly when we had a problem; they didn't schedule us too far in advance—it was like a day or two. They were adjusting a chain that had gotten stuck and changed out a wheel. The wheel had popped off our gate, and so they put a new one on. I think the previous owners had used them.”

Review by
10/01/2015

“I've just used them for years. I just know they show up when they say they will, and they know what they're doing. They're not the cheapest kids on the block, but they get the work done. I think the last thing was a controller issue on an automatic gate. They did not put the gate in—the gate's 20 years old, and they just service the motor. I've been using them for 20 years. They're friendly and professional.”

Review by
10/01/2015

“He gave me a good estimate with respect to what was wrong he fixed a problem that we had had for a while. He finally got the automatic fence to work properly. That was the sticker on our fence when we bought the house. I would recommend them. I'd give them a B, I would say it took me a while to finally get to the right solution. Even though we arrived at it was a little like pulling teeth, I had to - maybe it was communication gaps on my part but nevertheless their was one initially but it was resolved.”

Review by
10/01/2015

“They did a very good job, they were very responsive and made sure they answered all my questions that I had prior to the job beginning, and the fence turned out really nice. Actually, it was an electronic back gate with a door. I found out about them through my contractor. I would say they’re an A.”

Review by
10/01/2015

“They were efficient, and they did a really good job. We were very, very pleased with them. They put up a railing for us on our porch. They were right on time, did exactly what they said they were going to do, and did a good job. It's been a year, I think.”

Review by

“I've used L&C Fence over multiple times, and they're a great firm. The last thing they did was some gate work, some power gate work. I've used them for ten years. They do professional work—they carry it out in a professional manner. They've been around forever.”

Review by

“The fencing company did a good job. I was very happy with them. They showed up on time, they completed their work in one day, and then they left the property in good order, picked everything up that they needed to. They replaced a panel on my fence from storm damage. A is good.”

Review by

“It went well, the fence that they did. They did a really good job. They put a vinyl fence in our backyard—it’s 80 feet across and like 6 feet tall. There was one thing they had to just reattach on the bottom, but that was it—nothing major—and they came right out and did it.”

Review by
05/08/2015

“We signed a contract with them to do a fence around the pool, and they said they could do it in two or three weeks. It was like two and a half months later and then it took months for them to get it all fixed. It was just outrageous. I would give them a D grade.”

“I've used L&C Fence & Gate. I have an electric gate that breaks down from time to time. They almost always come to fix it within a day. They fix my swinging gate as well. I've been using them for about a year, and I've been satisfied. I would give them an A+ rating.”

Review by
04/09/2015

“I did use L&C Fence. My experience with them was a good one. They welded a piece onto my gate, like a driveway fence. It was just a gate in the driveway. There was a bracket that broke, and they came back and welded it on. I’d give them an A+.”

Review by
04/09/2015

“I have used L&C Fencing before. I had used them last September to install some handrails, wrought iron handrails on my front porch. I was satisfied with the job. They did a nice job so I have no complaints with that. I have called them recently for a bid on a deck on a patio but they’ve not called me. They haven’t returned my call. This was about 2 days ago. I’m assuming that they’ll return my call sometime. I’d give them a B. I have no complaints. I haven’t found anything I’ve been dissatisfied with. They got to it when they said they would and so I would give them a B on the work.”

Review by

“I had my fence replaced last year. It was right out of the Best Pick Reports. L&C Fence & Gate did a great job. The original fence was put in by the builder. This was a new one—a replacement. We've been here since 2000, so a couple of years ago, the fence finally had it, and I had them replace it. They did an excellent job. I'd give them an A.”

“We had a problem with our fence; it came off the rail and wasn’t working. The gate wasn’t opening and closing. I think it broke on a Sunday, and we called them early Monday morning. They were able to come out to the house that day and fix the problem without us having to be home. I think they had to climb over the fence or something to get inside and fix the problem. They left us a bill, and it was reasonable. Actually, it was less expensive than we had anticipated. We had a good experience, and everything has been great with no problems since. I would use them again if we needed this service again. We got a recommendation from a friend. I would recommend them, also. They deserve an A+.”

“It went well. This was not the first time I'd used them. I found out about the company through my builder. Everything was done to my satisfaction, so I would give them an A+ grade.”
