“Houston Fence Company installed a new fence for me, and they did an excellent job. I would 100 percent recommend them again.”
“The fence went up perfectly. I'd give Houston Fence an A+.”
“They did a great job. They built a wooden fence with a lattice over the top, and they put in a new gate. It's a beautiful fence—they did excellent work.”
“They replaced a fence for me. They did what they said they'd do, and they did a good job. I'd give them an A for my overall experience. I've recommended them already.”
“I've used Houston Fence before. This time, I had a new fence put in the backyard. They installed it very quickly. I'd give them an A—they were excellent.”
“They were very quick and efficient, they cleaned up, they were polite, and they were amazing. I loved them. It was a very small section of wooden fence. It's about 8 feet tall by 14 feet long, but it's near a creek, so it's on an angle. It was difficult—it was right next to a glass room, and no damage was done to the windows there. It was just amazing. They did it very quickly, and it was very professional. I think I would give them an A-. It could be a few more inches away from that glass window, which would have been easier access for me, but that was something that I didn't notice until after it was done. So it was too late to ask that, but honestly, they did a great job. They were avoiding things by doing it where they did it, and it's a little inconvenient for me, but I think they did a wonderful job. If I had another fence to do, I'd call them back.”
“I used Houston Fence Company—they put their name on the fence, and it was OK. They did a good job. They did a cedar fence, probably the entire back of the yard, one side, and a new wooden gate. I requested bids from three entities. I picked what I thought was the best bid and the people who had the best credentials for the job. They did an A job.”
“They're fantastic. I had a new gate put on. They did a fantastic job. I'm very happy with them. I'd give them an A.”
“They did a fantastic job on the fence. The guy that gave us an estimate was a real nice guy. They took down the old fence, and they put up the new fence and a really neat rock board. They had it a little bit off the ground where my dog got under the fence—I was going to go ahead and fix it myself, but he sent some guys out here, and they added another board to the rock board, sealing it off so my dog couldn't get out. The fence looks good. They did a great job. I usually do the fence myself, but I just didn't feel like it and his name rang a bell. I'd give them an A with no complaints. I didn't have any problems.”
“Everything went fine. They did good service, good everything. They did fine, and everything was perfect.”
“They were very good. They replaced a four-foot metal fence. I had used them like a million years ago to put a wooden fence in at a previous house, like 20 years ago. I'd give them the highest grade.”
“We had great service so I would rank them the highest in all categories.”
“It was the gate—it was hard to close, stuff like that. I'm going to be honest; the ground is shifting around my home because of the dryness and the rain in Texas. That's why the gate was off a little bit. I couldn't close it or open it. The problem is it's going to happen again. So I was pleased with the way they fixed it, and it worked fine. Every once in a while when it rains or gets too dry, even rain or dryness will cause that gate opening to open or close off, level or not being level, and that's the problem. So I'm going to have to say what they did fixed the problem at the time. It was positive because it fixed the problem I had. The customer service was fine. I chose them because they had put up a gate for me about 15 to 20 years ago. It worked all that time until we had this drought in Texas a few years ago, and then it started deteriorating, so I had them come back out. I'd give them an A+.”
“They installed a new fence in my backyard before I sold it. My experience with them was very, very positive. They put up a treated, dog-eared, cedar picket fence. I'd give them an A.”
“They just replaced a backyard fence—a wooden privacy fence. I found the company through the Best Pick Reports book. I'd give them an A.”
“They did what I wanted. We had two gates put in. I just got it done because I needed to lock up the backyard. We don't have any issues, so I would give them an A.”
“They did what they said, and they did it in a timely fashion. I had a wooden fence put up because I had a chain link fence before, and I wanted more privacy. Their customer service was good. I think someone had recommended them. I'd give them an A.”
“The work was done on time. We've used them before. Their work was better than other contractors we've seen. They know their business, and they do it well—clean, with no nails left. They tore down the old fence and erected a new one. We had used them before, and it was a good experience. I'd give them an A.”
“That was months ago. I've been doing business with them for years and years. The quality of their workmanship is my favorite thing. They replaced a whole fence—it was cedar. The work area was fine after they left. I'd recommend them. I would rate them an A. If they weren't good, I wouldn't keep coming back.”
“They put a fence in for me. They came out, and they did their job like they were supposed to. They did a good job and they left—no problems. They cleaned everything up. It was a chain-link fence. I would recommend them, and I'd rate them an A—they did a really good job.”
“They did a good job.”
“I liked the fast turnaround. They put up a horizontal wooden fence.”
“I had a positive experience. I was very happy with them.”
“They were very nice, and they did what I wanted. It was a small, wrought iron fence on my front porch. It wasn't anything big, but I was very pleased with it. The work area was left just fine. My next-door neighbor recommended them. I would recommend them, but I don't know of anybody who's really wanting anything right now. This is a very new neighborhood. I'd rate them an A.”
“It was great.”
“They did a good job. I liked just the job they did. I mean they did good work. The only thing I had negative was a lot of that little trash left around, but other than that everything else was very satisfactory. It was a stained cedar fence, and it had the decorative top on it. I called two or three people to come give me a bid, and the guy they sent out just kind of seemed more interested in getting my business, so that's why I went with them. I would recommend them to family and friends. I'd rate them an A-. I wish they just would have cleaned up a little better.”
“It was probably a year ago. They did the work that they were supposed to do. I'm recalling that there was something, but it was my wife who was mainly dealing with them. They left the area clean. It was a wrought iron fence in the backyard. They didn't do a gate. I would recommend them. I'll give them an A-.”
“They did what they said they were going to do, and they got it done on time. There were a few little minor things that were wrong, but they came out and fixed them. I was pleased. They put up a fence and two iron gates. I would say the customer service was very good. I'd give them an A-.”
“They did what I asked them to do, and they did it fairly fast. They replaced the fence on the back of the property. I thought the customer service was good. I told them what needed to be done. I went to work, came home, and it was done. It seemed like a good company. I'd give them an A.”
“They completed the work in the time that they said they were going to and at the cost that they said they were going to. I had a wooden fence constructed and a wooden gate attached. They were quick and efficient. I chose them and one other company to call, and they responded the quickest. I'd give them an A.”
“They showed up when they said they were going to, and they did what they said they were going to do at the price we agreed they would do it. I've got no complaints. They replaced our iron fence in the backyard. I didn't have any customer service issues. They just came and installed a fence. We had used them in the past. I'd give them an A.”
“It was a long time ago. It was fine. They did what they said they were going to do for the price they said they were going to do it. I think they set up a puppy guard on my fence. I had several fence projects done. The customer service was fine. I think they had done some work for me before. I mean, there was an issue, but they took care of it, so I don't know. I'd give them an A. It's hard to explain but our driveway sloped, and they didn't account for that when they were putting in the fence so the dog could still get out, but they fixed it without an issue. I'd give them an A.”
“Houston Fence Company is wonderful. They did exactly what they said they were going to do. They did a side fence and a gate, and their customer service was 100 percent excellent. I'd give them an A+.”
“They were professional. I had my total fence replaced—side, back, front, and the gate. They were friendly and easy to work with. They were quick to come out, and I knew that they were reputable. I would say they're A+. They did a great job.”
“Houston Fence Company installed a privacy fence to enclose my backyard. They were very responsive, knowledgeable, and polite, and the work was completed on time, which is always a big plus. I would definitely use them again next time.”
“They put in a fence, and they did an outstanding job. It's a solid wooden fence, and we're very happy with it. It's very good.”
“There was just something about the two guys that did the work—they did it in such a nice, orderly way, and it looks wonderful. I had used Houston Fence Company before many years ago, and that's why I chose them this time. I'd give them an A+.”
“I had a quarter of a gate and a quarter of the fence that had to be replaced. They do good work. I like the design, and the work was good quality. They didn't go over what they estimated, and I liked that they were credible in what they told me. They did good, quality work. I would recommend Houston Fence Company—they're an A+. They did an excellent job.”
“They did the work on time, they did what we talked about in terms of the cost, and they did a good job. They've done everything for us, including the security gate and the fence. I'd give them an A+.”
“Houston Fence Company did a fence for me, and I liked the wood product they used. I liked the fact that the workers were fast, too—they didn't drag on and on. They came in, did their work, and left. One year, they did the backyard, and they did the side another year. I would recommend them—I think they're probably the best ones around here. I'd give them an A.”
“They replaced our fence. They were very nice, and they followed up with us afterward. We drove by there because we live out by where they are, and we chose them because they were the nicest. Houston Fence Company is A+.”
“They got the job done quickly, and everybody I worked with was friendly and nice. They answered my questions and everything. A lot of people around here used them, so I knew that they were reputable. I found them by word of mouth. They get an A+.”
“They had good craftsmanship, and when I had to call them back for a repair, they were very prompt to do it. I remember the salesperson was very professional and provided very accurate quotes and recommendations. I'd give them an A+.”
“Houston Fence Company installed a fence so my dog couldn't escape. The customer service was pretty easy. I called them up and got an estimate. They worked with me a little bit because we made some changes. Then, they came out and put up the fence—it wasn't that hard on my end. They deserve an A+.”
“They installed a fence around my house. Their customer service was good. My neighbor recommended them to me. I'd give them an A+.”
“They built the fence around the backyard like they said they would, and they did it on schedule for the price that they quoted. My neighbors had arranged all this because it was a shared fence. I saw the work they did, and I was OK with them doing it. They're an A+.”
“Houston Fence Company did a huge fencing job between the property lines of three homes and then did some fences along the alley access to the back of our homes. They ran quite a bit of fencing for each of us. My section was rather small compared to my neighbors, but they created a different fence for me than they did for the others. I would use Houston Fence again, and I would recommend them to others. We wanted consistency because you can see across the yards, and because of where we live in Houston, the job was better consolidated to make it worthwhile. Individually, it would have started to get really complicated. Because we have common property lines, the three of us neighbors got together and decided to work with one company. It worked out very well for us. I'd give them an A+.”
“They put a 60-foot fence on the back of my house, and prior to that, they had done about a 40-foot side fence for me, too. I was very pleased with it. I called them back the second time because I was very pleased with the job. I'd give them an A+.”
“Houston Fence Company built the fence in a very timely manner, and it was exactly what we wanted. They were in the Best Pick Reports, and that's why I chose them. They're A+.”
“I liked their ability and willingness to come out and correct an issue. They installed an entire fence and then corrected a gate issue. I already have recommended them to someone. I'd give them an A+ for several different reasons.”
“They installed a fence, and they were efficient and on time. I would recommend them. I'd give them an A+.”
“They did fence work for me in the backyard. They were professional. They did what they said they were going to do, and they did the work quickly and efficiently. Houston Fence Company gets an A+.”
“Houston Fence Company did work for my mother, and she has been very happy with it. In fact, she is considering using them again for some other projects at some of her rental properties. She had a section of the fence in her backyard redone at the gate. They did about 25 feet of fence between her and the person that lives on the other side of the property. I think they deserve an A+.”
“They have prompt service, and they do the work that's requested. It works well. They have fine products. They did gate work for me. I would recommend Houston Fence Company—they're A+.”
“I'd give Houston Fence Company an A+. I recommended them to my neighbor behind me.”
“They said they were going to do the work and that they would start on a certain day, and that was when they started. They finished when they said they would. David was the person I dealt with, and he was very courteous. He actually gave me the name of two other people who are now working in the house. We are very happy. I have recommended Houston Fence Company to both of my neighbors. I'd give them an A+.”
“We've used them for several jobs. They've always been on time and cleaned up after themselves. They did a very good job. They replaced all the wood fencing around the perimeter of our property, and there have been no issues or reasons to call them back for anything. I would recommend them—A+.”
“I was very, very happy. I'd give Houston Fence Company an A+.”
“Houston Fence Company put up a fence in my backyard, and they did a very good job. They came out, did what they said they were going to do, and I didn't have to follow up on anything. I didn't have to watch over them—they did the job like we talked about. I would recommend them because they did a very good job. They deserve an A+.”
“I've used them several times. I liked their sales team and their installers. The most recent thing they did for me was replace the side fence with a gate in it. There have been no issues or reasons to call them back for anything, so I would recommend them to others. They're A+.”
“They installed a fence in the backyard. Houston Fence Company was actually the only company to come out, look, and give me a quote on the job. The quote that he gave me was what he actually charged me. I'd give them an A+.”
“Houston Fence Company did a good job at the price we agreed upon, and they had good, prompt service. They did gate and fence work for me. I would recommend them. They've been around forever, so that's how I knew about them. I'd give them an A+.”
“They did fence work for me, and I liked the quality of their work. They put up a six-foot fence all the way around my backyard. I think I heard about them from a neighbor. I would recommend them, and I'd rate them an A+.”

“We were happy with the work. They did the gate the way it was supposed to be done, and everything went smoothly as far as setting things up and getting the quote. I'd give them an A.”
“They did all right—they repaired a section of the fence. They initially installed it, and they've been repairing it on and off. There have been lots of repairs on that fence because we had some problems with the sewer system in the back of our property on the city side. The city has come in to tear the fence down several times and put it back up. I'd give Houston Fence Company an A.”
“Houston Fence Company did a fine job. I'd give them an A.”
“They did our fence and our gate, and we're happy. They built a fence for us about ten years ago, and they replaced our gate in February of this year. I'd give them an A.”
“They did a great job in the time that they were supposed to. They cleaned up everything, and it was great. I have no complaints and neither does my husband. I chose Houston Fence Company because when I called them, they told me what they could do, and they came out and did it. They get an A.”
“They did a great job, they did it quickly, and the fence looks great. We're totally pleased. They took the old fence down and put up a whole new fence. Houston Fence Company was a recommendation from a friend, so that's why we chose them. I'd give them an A.”
“They did good work, and it's a good, quality fence. They fenced the complete front. We already had an existing wrought iron fence that was 30 or more years old. They took out the old fence, replaced it with a new fence, and put in an automatic gate opener. I chose Houston Fence Company because I knew two people that knew them, and they built a fence at my office. I'd give them an A.”
“Number one, they did a good job. Number two, when something broke down a week or two later, they came back and fixed it. I'd give Houston Fence Company an A.”

“They did fence and gate work for me. They were very professional and provided an excellent-quality product. They're A+. I would recommend them.”
“They put in a wrought iron gate, and they were super responsive. The customer service was great. They did an A+ job.”
“They had done some work for me before. They did an excellent job for me. The guy that came out to do the bid was very nice and knowledgeable. We were actually putting up a fence between neighbors, and so we worked back and forth and were splitting the cost. It was a wood fence. He was extremely nice and very helpful. I would give them an A+.”
“They were professional, and the way they handled my problem made my experience positive. They put up an electronic gate. I like it—it's beautiful. It was my first time using them. It was done in about two days, because they had to lay concrete and let the concrete dry. The workers were very professional. I would give them an A+. I highly recommend them. They give very punctual service, and they're very professional people.”
“I thought Houston Fence and the work they did for me was fine. It was a positive experience. The end result is what made my experience positive. They put up a wood fence in the backyard. The time frame in which the work was finished was very adequate. The cleanup was perfect. The workers were very professional and courteous. I would use this service in the future, if needed. I would rate them an A+.”
“Houston Fence Company did excellent work. The quality of the product was excellent. They built a custom metal fence around the garden area. The time frame in which the work was finished was within my expectations. They had done work in the past for some people I know, and they have a good reputation. I would give them a grade of A+.”
“My experience was excellent. My neighbors used them, and I liked what they did. They installed a wood fence. I looked at the job they did on the neighbors' property, and I wanted that same job. My other neighbor beside me went in and got his done as well. I'd give them an A+.”
“They're very friendly and on time, and the cost came in as estimated. They were very professional, and when the gate didn't work, they came right back out several times to adjust it at no charge to me. They installed everything—some wood, some wrought iron, and electric fences with opening gates. I'd highly recommend them, which I've already done. They actually did my neighbor's fence right after mine. I would give them an A+.”
“Houston Fence Company did work for me and did a very good job. It was a positive experience because of the workmanship. They put in a whole fence on four sides with a gate for me. The technicians were very responsive. They completed the job in a timely manner. The cleanup was excellent. I would give them a grade of A. I would use them again if I needed more work done.”
“Houston Fence Company did our fence, and they were excellent. I would say it's probably been four years ago. It was a new fence installation. I would give them an A, definitely.”
“We've had Houston Fence Company do our fencing. They put up a fence for us. They put up one of those wood stockade fences—about six feet tall. Everything turned out pretty good. They did one fence in which their work turned out real well. There was another fence done through somebody else that adjoined the neighbor, and that did not turn out so well. Like the gate doesn't close just perfect. Houston Fence deserves a good grade.”
“We put a new fence in at the old house before we moved here—Houston Fence did it. They were very, very good. They were timely, and they got it done in a reasonable amount of time. They did everything perfectly.”
“For fencing, I used Houston Fence Company. Recently, they replaced a gate and a 20-foot section of fence. They did a pretty good amount of work. It went excellent. They showed up early and worked until they were through. I have no complaints about the finished product.”
“I thought it was very good work. The fence is beautiful—it gets us a lot of compliments. It's very private, which is what we wanted. I want to say that my architect recommended them. We had a specific kind of fence in mind, and she said 'Well, you may want to try them.' It's a very contemporary-looking fence. It has horizontal slats instead of vertical ones, and it has a very, very big door. The door gave us a few problems, but they were always good about coming out and fixing it and adjusting it and so on. I have recommended them to many people. I'd give them an A.”
“Their work was fantastic. They were responsive, easy to work with, and quick. They replaced a wood fence with a new identical fence. I'd give them an A.”
“It was great—wonderful. They were prompt, their materials were good, and they were reliable. It just was a good experience. The installed a cedar fence. They've been in the area for quite a while, and we were not happy with the other fence company that we had used prior, so I decided to try this one. They get an A—definitely A.”
“Everything was good. They did a good job. It's a wooden fence, and it is gorgeous. They did everything that they said were going to do, and they just followed through and did a good job. I would recommend them. I'd rate them A.”
“It went great. They responded very well. I did not want to move here until the fence was completed. Even though it took them a few tries, they were always very responsive. One time the gate didn't quite close, but they found a way of making it secure until they came back. Each time I have called either to service the gate or to do anything extra, they have been very responsive. I'm very happy with them. I would give them an A. They're very responsive and on time. I think their responsiveness is the best thing about them. They are also polite and professional.”
“It went great—it couldn't have been any better. They did a great job. The salesman was wonderful. The people were great. They did a great job, and then they recommended the people to stain it, and they did a great job as well. I would give them an A. I also recommended them to two other people.”
“The workers were really good. They installed a cedar fence. They did an excellent job. I'd rate them A.”
“We couldn't be happier. They were here on time, and they got the work done. They installed a wooden fence and a wrought iron gate. When we had some miscommunication, they took care of it instantly. We're completely satisfied. My next-door neighbor also got a fence at the same time we did, and he is equally satisfied.”
