Review by Danielle G. in Lock Haven, PA
The contractors which worked for this company were great - however, the owner of Custom Fence will not return phone calls on our problem with one of the gates. He continues to be unresponsive and we paid over $13,000 dollars for the fence! Our next steps are legal and BBB. This contractor will not stand behind his warranty or his word. Do not use this company!
Response by Custom Fence Design, LLC: The bottom line here is Daniel would like me to forget he owes me $1500 and adjust his gates at my cost as well. I consider myself an expert in containing dogs and advise all of my potential customers on how and why I would do certain fencing depending on the breed. In Mr. Slenkamps case I advised against the split rail fence unless he added a bottom rail to support the wire in the middle, but he chose not to. Prior to the completion of the fence his dog escaped as I had warned he would. Mr. Slenkamp called me complaining about the dog escaping and insisted that I do the extra work at no additional cost. When I refused he swore at me and it was downhill after that. Ordinary I would have taken care of any issues immediately but under the circumstances, I can not justify my putting more of my time and money into his project.

Robert was responsive to questions and kept us updated on delivery status. That alone is refreshing. The fence is beautiful and I would definitely recommend this company.

Review by in Niantic, CT
Dave and his crew had the unenviable task of ripping out 120 feet of old and rotting 6' tall fencing, including the concrete-bases for the posts that were intertwined in tree roots. The installation was the new fence was difficult as well as those same roots, rocks and ledge presented many challenges. Result? A brand new backyard area with a lovely cedar fence surrounding it - the adjoining neighbors were delighted as well. Thanks Dave and crew!

Quoted much higher than competitors in the area. Would recommend others.
Response by Custom Fence Design, LLC: I spoke to John, and he says he did not put this review and added we came right out and the job is great. John added that he will be contacting the Home Advisor to correct.

Review by in Haddam, CT
We needed a dog run built incorporating an existing deck, which would require both chain link as well as a new wood gate and trellis on the deck to contain our two small dogs. As a dog owner himself, David Henderson was extremely helpful in planning the fencing to ensure our inquisitive and mischievous dogs would be safe. David and his crew were polite, hardworking (despite the high heat and humidity), and ensured the job was finished expertly to meet our needs.

The fence is great! They installed it when they said they would. There were some problems when it was first installed but Dave said he would "make it right" and he did.

Review by in Uncasville, CT
They showed up and started installing my fence as arranged. they are very courteous and prof. They worked very clean with concern for maintaining a neat and clean work site. Custom Fence Design just completed installation of my fence and they did an outstanding job with a lot of attention to detail. They worked clean and cleaned up all debris even the excess dirt and stones left after digging the post holes. I am 100% satisfied with the final product.

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.
