Small deck replacement

Cole came in between jobs as previously discussed. We met on the Monday he quoted (based on hourly rate) and completed the work on Wednesday.

Very good workmanship, efficient, trustworthy and reasonable. Would definitely hire again for projects.

Fence

Cole just completed building our fence on difficult terrain. The progression each day was exciting just to watch Cole’s attention to detail and craftsmanship. He chooses his materials carefully and the end result surpassed our expectations. He keeps a clean work site, was friendly and finished within the time quoted. Look no further!!!

Fence and outdoor stairs

The fence and outdoor stairs are residual projects we had wanted to complete for a long time. They are in difficult terrain.we were fortunate to find Cole who was able to complete both projects at a high standard and at a very reasonable cost. We are very pleased with both his work and friendly but efficient manner.

Gate project completed to perfection

We asked Cole to fix our side-of-house gate.
He quoted promptly, was clear in all communications, and performed the work on time, cleanly and with a great result.
We will ask Cole again to help us with future projects.

fence

We were looking for someone to re build our back yard fence. Finding the right person was certainly a challenge until we came across FRIENDLY-FENCE.
Cole did an excellent job.
A true craftsman, reliable and communicative. We are very happy with the project and would not hesitate to recommend Cole to anyone else.
Also such a nice person!
Thank you!

Thank you so much for the review! It was a great pleasure meeting you. I hope to see you again one day. Don't hesitate to call if your gate needs a little adjustment, as they do tend to settle a tiny bit over time.

Fence, lattice work, posts

Cole rebuilt a cedar fence, under deck lattice work, and a cedar post. He also created and built corner protection to our garage. He performed well with good carpentry skills, creativity and reliability. His charges were reasonable and he provided back-up to support his invoices. We intend to use his services again.

Rebuilding front porch stairs & railings

Cole is an exemplary carpenter. He is friendly, polite, prompt, very tidy, and communicates clearly .He replaced my front porch stairs, railings and support post. He hand picked the cedar boards , he pays close attention
to detail. He even re cemented the old bottom cement Step which had deteriorated.I will definitely call Cole again .

Backyard fence, gate and garden bed retaining wall build

I recently called Cole at Friendly Fence to estimate replacing our old, falling down backyard fence. We chose a fence style from his website ( he's got lots of pictures of designs/styles to choose from ) and Cole built us a beautiful Fence and Gate - it looks Fantastic!
We're very happy we chose Cole and impressed with his quality, workmanship and his friendly personality. He left a neat and tidy work space. I would highly recommend him.
