    He pays a lot of attention to detail. It may take a little longer but the result you get is great. Would recommenced him to anyone.

  • Paula Simpkins - Homeowner

    Very polite, hard working, takes pride in his work. CY did an excellent job on our fence, he went above and beyond. He even did a walk through when finished to make sure we were satisfied. If we ever need anymore work done we will definitely call CY again.

  • Ariel Townley

    He was super flexible with what we wanted, worked with our price range and turned out a better fence than we could ever have imagined!!!!!

  • Victor Dickson

    The Fencing build was done utilizing the best attention to detail I have ever seen. CY Fencing made our home look like a million bucks and added value along with curb appeal. 10/10 would recommend!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Typically a customer will contact me via phone call, text, social media etc. and I will schedule an appointment to discuss their fencing needs. I will take measurements and evaluate the current conditions of the fence. We will talk about any restrictions or requirements if applicable to the situation. I will make sure we all understand the goal and agree upon it. Then I will usually have a quote to the customer no later than the next day. Many times I will have it to them later that evening. I will have discussed the terms of the business prior to quoting and once awarded the business I will start on the day as promised and finish the project in a reasonable time. I will work with their co-joining neighbors as well.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have my Journeyman Carpenters license with many years of experience in construction. I've been building fences recently since 2015.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Yes I have a standard pricing system that is fair and consistent. Of course sometimes there will be variables such as terrain, ground hardness, etc. but these are the exception and not the rule.


How did you get started in this business?

I ran into a friend who has a fencing business and offered me a job. We worked well together for 2 years then I decided to try it on my own. He is doing well and we have no problems working together.


What types of customers have you worked with?

Mostly residential and some light commercial.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently built a very nice 8' Cedar fence around two swimming pool areas. Two neighbors was wanting privacy, they got together and hired me. It turned out really sweet and they were more than pleased. I also built their gates and front sections. The pool guy also told the owners it looked really good and he sees alot of different fences everyday.

Also I had a young military couple who got together with their neighbor a police officer and I built them a fence completely around the whole house with pre-stained cedar and they loved it. Had their grass sod installed and it totally transformed their house. The officer who shares one section of their fence wants me to come back and install a long side section as soon as he gets the funding.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Ask for pictures of previous work. Ask for lead times. Ask how the money will be dispersed during the project. Ask for references from previous customers. Listen to your gut instinct. See how well they listen to your needs and plan on meeting those needs or explaining what are your options. Look at the price and see how they compare for the region you live. Communication is also very important, how they respond to your questions or answers. We all get busy but overall you should feel comfortable about the person and the decision to go with them.


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

They should know the scope of the project. Talk to their neighbors and see if there is any common interest in building a new fence and would they be willing to share the cost. Consider how to accommodate outside pets while the fence is down. Have the funds readily available and be ready to do it in a timely manner once your estimate is provided. Think about HOA restrictions if it applies to their neighborhood. Think about utility locations and if it will be an issue.
