They did everything that I expected them to do. I even had an extra thing that I asked them to do to help keep my dog in. They were great to work with. I'd give them an A. I'd be very likely to recommend them.”

“They put in a fence in the backyard. They showed up when they said they would. They got the fence put in in a day. I called them back and said that it was off by half an inch. They came out and checked, saw what I was talking about, and fixed it. I'd give them an A.”

“The workmanship was good. They did both fence work and deck work. I would give them an A+ overall.”

“They did what they said they were going to do, they did it well, and they did it quickly. They were very pleasant while they did it, very professional, and very skillful. Nothing to be unhappy about. I've had both done, both deck and fence. I would give them an A+ overall.”

“The product was good, and their installation was excellent. They did a good job. They put up a metal fence on a big deck. It's 6 feet high and about 100 feet of deck. Their customer service was fine. I chose them because somebody recommended them. It was A+ work.”

“They were great. They did a very nice job. They fenced in the whole back of the house and a little bit on the side. They also put in a new gate. It was a board-on-board fence. Their customer service was excellent. They were just easy to deal with—no problems at all. We saw their work in our neighborhood. They earned an A+.”

“Tri-County came out quickly and was very responsive. They scheduled right away and did exactly what I asked them. I had them just replace an existing wooden fence. It was a pretty simple task, but they did a great job. Their customer service was excellent. I chose them just for the responsiveness. I'd say it was A+ work.”

“It was five degrees out, and they did the fence anyway. They did a residential fence in high-end cedar. Their customer service was fine. I chose them because they've done work for the company I own for the past 20 years. It's only good work or I would've been all over them for not doing a quality job—A+.”

“Tri-County did what we asked them to, basically. They put the fence around the house. It was a wood picket fence. Their customer service was good. I chose them because a neighbor recommended them. I'd give them an excellent grade—A+.”

“They did the work in the exact amount of time they said it would take, and it was excellent quality. They put in a wooden fence for me. The customer service was very good. I chose them from a referral from a friend. They earned an A+.”

“I liked everything; it was perfect. Everybody was friendly, and they did the job they were supposed to. They extended the wood fence we had already had, and they initially put it in as well. The customer service was very good. I'd give them an A grade.”

“We thought the people that came to give us the estimate were very smart about what they were recommending. They evaluated what our needs were and gave us a very smart recommendation for what we needed to have done for our yard. They fenced in our side yard. Our backyard has been fenced in by our neighbors, but the side yards that connected the house had not been fenced in. They installed gates and fencing. We really thought the person that came out to give us the estimate was really smart and knew what he was talking about. He gave us good advice—it was an awkward space that needed to be fenced in, and he was very good, very helpful, very smart. We felt our decision to go with Tri-County was based on our comfort level with who they were. It's an absolute A+. We were very, very pleased. We've recommended them to friends who thought they were very good.”

“Tri-County put a fence around our house. They're a good company, and they did good work. They built a six-foot fence around the back part of our property to go around our pool. The guys that came out were really nice, and they cleaned up and were really efficient. I would say they get an A+.”

“The service was good, and they got the job done right. They installed a chain-link fence. I chose them from a referral. I'd give them an A+.”

“The crew was very friendly, and they answered all of my questions. I wanted to deviate a little bit on the fence. When we were putting it in, I told them I wanted to come halfway down the yard and that I wanted to cut it in about four feet and then continue all the way down the yard. I showed the guy what I wanted to do, and he staked it out and said, 'No problem.' They were very good to work with. I think the reason why I chose them was they're the only people that called back, believe it or not. They were the only ones. They called, and actually, this is the second time I've used them. I used them in the winter to put a little fence at the top of my driveway, and a woman named Susan came by in the dead of the winter. She was really nice, and then they came over in the middle of the winter and did this real little job. I told her I'd probably be calling her back this summer to put a big fence in because they did such a nice job on the first one. It was A+ work.”

“When she came out to do the estimate, she was very informative and explained everything to me thoroughly. What we discussed is what was delivered. After it was done, I wanted them to switch the latch on the gate, and they did it without any pushback or other costs. They were very accommodating and timely. They fenced in my yard and put in a very wide double gate on one side and a single gate on the other side. I had a couple of estimates, and I liked the lady from Tri-County that came out to do the estimate. They did it on my time on the weekend when it was easy for me to see them. I'd rate them as an A+.”

“They did a great job on the fence. They were friendly and supportive—everything. They replaced a big part of our existing fence in the back. Their customer service was very good. I'd give them an A+.”

“I needed some rails fixed and a couple of posts replaced, and they came in and did a very good job. They were clean and neat. Everything went according to plan. I've used them in the past. They were convenient, they were in the area, and they had the kind of material I was looking for. I'd give them an A+.”

“I thought the job was well done, and also, the people that put the fence up were exceedingly nice and hardworking. They said they would finish it that day, and they did it. They worked in the dark. It wasn't a big job. It was a wooden fence. My neighbors had the bigger job and chose the company. They had their whole backyard done, and I only had a small part. I'd give them an A+.”

“Our fence was broken, so I called them to see if they could come out and fix it, which they did on short notice. Their customer service was very good. I chose them because I had had a terrible experience with the company that actually installed my fence, so I wanted to go a different route. They get an A+ from me.”

“They did fine. It was all good. They put up the fence, and they did a good job. It was a wood fence. I'd give them an A rating.”

“They installed a fence. I asked them to put in a fence, and they put in a fence. The fence is still there. It was pretty easy. It was probably 110 feet long and 90 feet wide. So it's not a small fence, but not an enormous fence. It's a pretty standard wood fence—just standard, pressure-treated wood. I chose them because the other company had a skeevy owner and Tri-County didn't. I think it's a solid A effort.”

“When I had an issue with the fence after it settled—one of the posts was kind of was leaning—they came by and fixed it. They were pretty good about it. They did a pressure-treated pine fence. It was nice—good customer service. They had two people there to install it. I'm satisfied with it. I like to go with smaller, local people if possible. I'd give them an A grade.”

“They did a great job for me. I'd give them an A grade. It was a vinyl fence.”

“I'm still in the middle of working with them. They replaced a fence for me. Their customer service is very good. They removed a wood fence, and they put in tubular aluminum. I chose them through Best Pick Reports.”

“They were great—great customer service and a great guy that gave me a quote. Their work was great.”

“It was definitely a positive experience. They had very good customer service. They were very responsive. They did a good job on our project. They did a vinyl fence for us for a private residence. They just did the fence. Their customer service was very good, and they were very responsive and easily reached. We have no concerns really. It wasn't easy to find a company that had consistent positive ratings that you could actually trust. They were actually one of the few companies in our area that has that consistency and also had the services that we needed. There were some other companies that we were looking into, but they did not provide the vinyl fence services. Also, there was a lot of good companies that we reviewed, but when we actually dealt with them, their customer service was actually not as responsive as Tri-County. They were harder to reach, so we ended up going with Tri-County because of that. Excellent, I would say.”

“Tri-County Fence & Decks did a split-rail fence. Their customer service was fantastic, both from the front office that put the estimate together to the on-site supervisor who did the job. I went with the company because they came out and did a better presentation than anybody else. I'd give them an A+. They were excellent, and I have no complaints.”

“Tri-County Fence & Decks did an excellent job with the fence. They did a wood fence with a door, and their customer service was very good. I would rate them as an A+. It was nice, clean, and neat when they left, and they did a great job.”

“I had a really great experience with Tri-County Fence & Decks—they were terrific. They built a new fence for my new house, and it is beautiful. They earned an A+.”

“They did a wooden privacy fence, and I'd grade them as an A+.”

“They did an excellent job. They were quick, they were efficient, and they got the job done. They installed a four-foot-high fence around my backyard. I went with them because I had seen other fences in the neighborhood done by them, and I was pleased by their work. I would recommend this company to family and friends with an A grade.”

“I'd rate Tri-County Fence & Decks as an A. They were reliable, and they did a good job—a really, really good job. It was a high-quality, five-foot privacy fence. I found the company in the Howard County Best Pick Reports booklet.”

“The people were polite, timely, thorough, and neat. I'm a contractor, and I was impressed with their work. They installed a split-rail fence and then fixed an all-wood fence. I would recommend Tri-County to anyone. They were a grade-A service.”

“They did a great job—without question. I didn't meet the guys who came out to do the work—I wasn't there for it—but they did a nice job. The job was done satisfactorily and in a timely fashion. The quality of their work was good; I'm very pleased with it. They installed a fence and a gate on the side of the house, and they replaced a gate on the other side of the house. I actually found them because there's a housing development down the street from my house, and I had seen them putting fences up there. I had called two other fence companies first. They both came out and either didn't want to do the job because the job was too small or never showed up for follow-up, so I was getting frustrated. When I saw Tri-County Fence & Decks' work and gave them a call, they came right over and did the job for me, so I'm pleased. I'd give them an A+.”

“I actually wasn't here during the fence construction itself—my wife was—but the fence itself, the final product, is fine. We've had it since the spring, and it's doing great. They did not leave a mess, and we're satisfied with the product. It's one of those double-slat, screening fences along the back of our property. I'd recommend Tri-County Fence & Decks to anyone who wanted to know—in fact, they have done other work in the neighborhood, so I think we canvassed people in the neighborhood already. I'd give them an A.”

“They did a fence for me in the backyard, and I'd rate their work as an A.”

“They gave me a quote, and they stuck to it. They showed up on time, and they did the work to my satisfaction. Basically, they removed an old fence and replaced it with a new one. The one they removed was basically a chain-link wooden fence—it was three different fence styles—and they replaced it with a six-foot privacy fence. I would definitely recommend them. They're an A.”

“I was pleased by both the initial estimate and the individual when they came out to give it. They explained what work was going to be done. They came in and completed the work when they said they were going to complete it, the work that was done was good quality, and they cleaned up very nicely after they left. It was all very good. They replaced a board-on-board fence in my backyard. It was a privacy fence around two-thirds of the perimeter of my house, and the fencing had fallen apart. I would definitely recommend Tri-County Fence & Decks to anyone looking for a new fence. I'd give them an A.”

“Tri-County Fence did a split-rail fence for us a couple of years ago. They were on time, they did a nice job, and I had no complaints. They get an A from me.”

“They installed a fence, and it was really good. I'm hoping to use Tri-County Fence & Decks again this year, but I haven't had the opportunity yet. The guys that came out to do the work were easy to communicate with and knew what they were doing. They came out on time and didn't leave a mess. I'd say they should get an A.”

“They put in a split-rail fence for me, and they did a great job from start to finish. They were hard workers; they came in and knocked it out. Tri-County Fence & Decks is a company I'd recommend. I'd rate them as an A.”

“The guys that came out to do the work were very professional and very easy to work with. They built a privacy fence for me. I would recommend them to everyone because I'd use Tri-County again myself. I'd definitely say they deserve an A.”

“It was fine—just your average fence job. They just did a small, private, backyard fence. The reason I chose them over a different company is this friend of mine used them and recommended them, and I would recommend them to my other friends as well. I'd give them an A.”

“We've used them a couple of times. They come and do it, and it was all done in a timely manner. There were no issues with the guys, and there was nothing I thought they could have done better. They came, they took care of permits, they took the old fence out, and they put the new fence up. It was a six-foot, scalloped, contemporary type of fence with two doors. They did our first fence 15 or 20 years ago. We had a three-foot fence, and then we got a puppy that we needed a six-foot fence for, so we just had them come out and swap it. We chose them originally just from seeing their work in the neighborhood. I'd recommend them. They're an A.”

“I didn't really interact with the guys that came out and did the work because I was at work, but the privacy fence came out great. Everything is fine, and they left the site looking good. I would recommend this company to family and friends. They deserve an A.”

“Tri-County Fence was very quick and efficient. They installed a fence around our entire backyard and made sure that it was dog friendly. They were very friendly and cleaned up after themselves. We didn't have any issues at all. They were a referral from one of our neighbors. I would recommend this company 100 percent. They get an A grade from me.”

“They built a split-rail fence with two gates around the backyard, and I liked that they did the job quickly. There was one error with the gate in a place where we didn't want it, but they came back and fixed it, and everything works fine. I would recommend the company to others, and I'd give them an A.”

“The job was done on time, and it was done very well. The installers encountered a problem, and they went the extra mile to make it right. It was a good experience. I had chain-link fencing redone at the house, and the fencing that they brought was a type that couldn't be stretched really tightly. Apparently, it's a common, residential-type fence, and the installer alerted me to the fact that it couldn't be stretched tight. We have a dog, so we needed it to be nice and tight so the dog couldn't get under the fence. The fellow who was in charge of the job came out with the materials I needed for the job on the same day, so they were able to finish that day. Considering their willingness to make things right on the same day, I'd say they earned an A grade.”

“They were pretty prompt and efficient. We have a large yard, and they worked hard and got it all done in a day. They seemed to take great care with placing the posts, and if it didn't look right, they adjusted it. I thought it was good craftsmanship. They did a four-foot white fence with bars and metal mesh so the dogs can't get out. I found the company from somebody else in the neighborhood who had used them, and I would recommend them to family and friends. I'd rate them as an A.”

“I was 100 percent happy with everything about Tri-County Fence & Decks. I had an existing split-rail fence, and they replaced some rails and posts that were rotting. They also replaced two gates and did a custom curve at the top. It's beautiful—they did it perfectly. I've recommended them to many people, and I'd absolutely give them an A+.”

“I thought Tri-County Fence & Decks was wonderful. They installed a paddock-style fence with mesh wire, and they paid very close attention to detail. I have a little dog, and they made sure that the mesh touched the ground and that there weren't any little holes where the dog could get out. They're A+.”

“The salesman and the crew that came out were excellent, and they did a great job. We had a fence repaired, and everything has held up fine. They definitely get an A+.”

“Tri-County Fence & Decks put up a six-foot privacy fence in my backyard, and it is awesome. The experience was nothing but positive. The workmanship, customer service, follow-up, billing—all of it was great. The workers were great. They get an A+.”

“Working with Tri-County Fence & Decks was a wonderful experience. The installers were very nice guys, and the customer service was good. We had them do a house in one city, so we used them to put up a vinyl stockade fence for the house in another location. They did a great job at both places. I'd give them an A+.”

“I had Tri-County Fence & Decks put a picket fence in for me, and their attention to detail made my experience a positive one. It's low maintenance. I didn't have to clean up behind them, and the customer service was excellent. They also helped in choosing what I wanted. I would give them an A+.”

“They installed our picket fence, and they did a great job. I met their sales representative, and he was very good. The work was done great. They cleaned up everything in my yard. They were on time, friendly, knowledgeable, and hardworking. I was given a good recommendation, and I have already recommended them to somebody else. They did a really good job. I would give them the best rating—an A.”

“Tri-County Fence & Decks put in a wooden fence for me, and I thought it was great. They did a wonderful job. They put in a wooden gate, as well. This was the first time I had Tri-County do work for me, and I would give them an A.”

“I contacted Tri-County Fence & Decks a while ago to get some work done. They removed a fence and installed a new one. They were very good, professional, and they did the work quickly. I'm very happy—I have no complaints. I would recommend the company. I'd say they were an A+.”

“They put a stockade fence across the back of our yard, and the work they did was very good. They were efficient, and they did the work in a timely manner. It was very professional. They cleaned up well, and the customer service was very good. I'd give them an A+.”

“Tri-County Fence & Decks did a great job. I wanted privacy, so I called them, and they did fencing halfway through my property for me. The customer service and quality of the work were good, and I would use their service again if needed. I recall being satisfied with the work. I'd give them an A+.”

“They just took down the fence that was there and replaced it with a new six-foot chain-link fence. They did a good job, did it correctly, and it was a positive experience overall. The customer service was good. I rate them an A+.”
