Review by in Canoga Park, CA
I had Mario come out to install a 6 foot tall gate that transitioned into an 8 foot tall gate the gate ran for about 86 feet between my neighbor and my house. In short Mario and his team did an amazing job. If I need to install or repair another gate I will use Creative Outdoors. I also want to add the fact that Mario has honest pricing and he has great customer service.

Mario is a nice, courteous and professional guy. The job was done well and pricing was fair. Best of all he communicates with you every step of the way so you’re never left wondering. I recommend you consider him if you need any fencing work done.

Review by in Porter Ranch, CA
simply the best you can find ! I required a Custom Fence and am very particular on the design as well as the craftsmanship. Mario hit my needs perfectly. We have choices on where our hard earned founds go, I would go nowhere else. Thank you so much Mario for making my yard beautiful !

I had a fence that had fallen down repaired by installing new posts. The workman did a good job.

Mario was honest and upfront about the cost and timeline of my project. I had a short 20' section of dilapidated wooden fence replaced with a 7' vinyl fence with a gate. As he told me initially, it took two partial days, the first was 1/2 day to set the posts and 2-3 hours the following day to erect the fence and attach the gate. He was fast, friendly and helpful in answering any questions. He immediately asked for my input when there was a decision to be made due to a small elevation difference on each side of the fence that affected the swing of the gate. I would highly recommend Creative Outdoors. Realistic expectations, above average customer service, and good communication resulted in a quality outcome with no misunderstandings.

Seal of Approval

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)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
