They didn't let the rain slow them down! I'll have more work for them in the future. Very fair pricing too.

Scott Caylor has taken over the fencing part of the business. They came out and got our farm fence up with two gates in two days. They were very professional and nice. A joy to work with. I would recommend them to anyone.

Review by Ray B. in Blue Ridge, GA
This was the worst experience I have ever had with a contractor. The fence posts were not cemented properly. Too little concrete or none at all. Posts were cut too low and then the miscuts were actually NAILED back on instead of replacing the posts. The lowest rail if the fence is practically on the ground and I will be forced to take it all down and move up so it is not exposed to the ground contact.The contractor was paid to tear down the old fence and haul away yet the majority of the old fence and concrete was thrown on my neighbors lot instead. I complained about the fence and he did come back out and replace a few of the cut posts but this time did not cut the excess at all. I have since emailed him because he did not fix all the posts but he ignores my emails. I am disgusted with the work! I don't understand how the other reviews can be five stars.

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.
