Testimonials

To the recent installation of our gateway and fence I am writing to thank you very much for your assistance in making sure this difficult project looked so simple and effective when complete. It is worth noting that with a street gradient of 28 degrees, solving my specific need for a gate that did not look out of place compared to the fence was difficult, especially seeing as though I wanted the design of the fence to follow the concept of the railing on the house. The service was great particularly as all measurements were double checked for accuracy, the colour matched the sample and you greatly assisted in problem solving.

The Service we received from FenceCorp was excellent. Our new fence looks great!
