They were extremely responsive towards my wants and needs. They came out several times at my request. They had a contract that they followed to the T. I was allowed to inspect every single move that was made, this was all apart of the contract.

I just had a split rail wood fence installed by Advance Fence, Inc. Julio is great to work with, and he and his team did an excellent job with the installation. I can't say enough good things! I would highly recommend this very professional company - you will NOT be disappointed!

Review by in Mchenry, IL
i started out by contacting 12 contractors to replace my 22 years old cedar fence. most of the posts had rotted and a large section of the fence had fallen down. of the 12 contractors, only 5 decided it was worth contacting me to give a quote. price was never a consideration since all 5 quotes were so close in price. i narrowed my list down to 2 contractors that i felt would do the best job. julio at advance fence had me sold mostly because of the great communication. he got back to me within a day no matter how i contacted him, email, phone, text... i couldn't ask for more than that since i am a realistic person and understand he has other clients and can't just drop what he is doing to answer me immediately. whenever he said he would be at my house, he was. whenever he said he would get back to me, he did. julio really seemed to know what it would take to build a very solid fence for me. i explained that i was way more concerned about the structure of the fence than i was about the looks. it didn't matter, the fence is structurally sound AND looks gorgeous! i told julio i was concerned about how fast the cedar posts were rotting and breaking. he suggested we use postmaster steel posts. i was not concerned about seeing the steel posts, but if you are, don't. julio and his crew cover the posts on both sides with cedar pickets. you would not know the posts are steel if you hadn't chosen to have them installed. the crew was amazing and very professional. they took time the time to do the job correctly instead of just throwing it up so they could move on. they also did a great job cleaning up after. you would not even know they were here working if it wasn't for the new fence. there was some other things i wanted to get done before the new fence went up. julio was great about waiting for me to get done what i needed to get done. once i called him to say i was ready, he and his crew came out within a few days to start the job. this may not be the case, but it was as if he was saving me a spot on his schedule. i have since recommended advance fence/julio to several friends and family members. it is hard to find anyone that takes pride in their work these days and truly takes the time to do it right. also, for some reason, i have a very hard time even getting anyone to call back about a potential job. you are trying to give these people your hard earned money and they won't even bother to call you back? well, if you are looking for a contractor that does everything correct, contact advance fence!!

I never do reviews but I defiantly feel that advance fence deserves one. They had my fence installed in one day while I was at work. I searched all over for fence services including on craigslist. After receiving multiple quotes Julio was the most professional, reasonable and knowledgeable out of them all. I am VERY satisfied with the work they did and would absolutely recommend them to anyone that is looking to have fence installation. I will defiantly keep them in mind for future home purchases. Thanks again Julio BEAUTIFUL WORKMANSHIP!!!!

Julio and his team did a great job on my fence. Julio answered all my questions and the team completed the job in one long day. Julio and his team were very polite and cleaned the job site nicely after all the work was done.

Julio is a quality individual and he and his crew do nice work. We had a combination of Vinyl fence and Field Fence to put in totaling 5-600ft and he handled them both. We are very happy with the installation.

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
