Post replacements and creative fence repair

Keith Fencing did an exemplary job in problem solving work around a tree that had nearly knocked out our fence. When Keith arrived to give the estimate, he listened carefully and offered up a creative solution that did not require buying extra materials or being wasteful and throwing out what was already there. When the work was done he had done as he promised and we once again had an aesthetically pleasing looking fence that was stable. Further to this fence work he replaced two posts in supreme fashion in another section of fence, reinforced a gate post, rehung our gate and levelled everything to look professional and almost like new! If I had any other fence work or deck work to do I would definitely call Keith Fencing and I will be recommending him to friends and family.

Fence Post Replacement

We hired Keith Fencing to replace seven fence posts in my backyard and hoped we could save the existing panels. Keith saved us a lot of money by putting in new fence posts and not pulling out the old ones. an innovative approach in cost cutting.
Would definitely endorse him , good work and all in one day.

chain link fence

I called Keith and 4 others for an estimate for a 55' commercial chain link fence. Keith was patient and knowledgeable. His quote was in the middle of the pack, but he got the job because of his approach, understanding and no push-back on what I wanted. Keith had to work at a disadvantage with a cranky neighbour, but completed the job exactly as I wanted. I was more than pleased with the result and will have him back to install another 60+ ft. I would highly recommend Keith to anyone who requires this service.

Backyard fence

Call for 3 estimates and decided to go with KF.
He took longer to start the work than he had said but once started he did an excellent job with his helper.Very friendly and task oriented. Very good clean-up after the work was completed.
I would not hesitate to recommend him for such work.

Cedar Fence

We had to replace a fence in downtown Ottawa. We contacted Keith along with two other fence companies.

Keith gave us a reasonable quote and helped us with the design of the fence and talked us through our options. During installation, we had some disputes with neighbours over the property lines, but Keith handled the situation very professionally, and accomodated us when we had to delay the installation due to this dispute.

Keith finished the installation and also accomodated us when we made minor changes to the location of posts.

The end results was a beautiful fence.

Keith installed a beautiful fence on our property.

Fencing by swimming pool

Keith erected a very good fence beside my swimming pool replacing one that needed attention. This was done in good time according to the contract. I noted that Keith was extremely industrious in hand digging the post holes. The wood used was white cedar and represented a much improved look to the pool. His work was very professional and his work habits were exceptional. The site was always tidy and I was delighted with the results. I apologize to Keith for being so tardy, in giving this testimonial as I have had 3 deaths in my immediate family this year. This was great work done at a very reasonable price

Townhouse Fences & Gates

After deciding that it was time to have a wooden privacy fence built to section off the small backyard of a townhouse, I proceeded to obtain quotes from five different contractors. While all quotes were in the same ball park, Keith's was the lowest. When I had researched out contractors, Keith had a very good track record. However, I have noticed that in the short term, some unfavourable reviews have appeared and I have to admit that I got a bit nervous. However, I decided to proceed with Keith and I am happy that I did.

First, Keith took the time to visit my home and provide me with a fence quotation on a Sunday. I had requested this as my personal schedule has been very busy for the past 6 weeks due to illness in faimily. While I hadn't explained this reasonig to Keith, his willingness to accomodate was very much appreciated.
Second, he made recommendations for fencing that would maximize the aesthetics of the fence based on size of yard and the presence of an existing fence even though it possibly meant a smaller sale for him.
Third, he didn't rush the work, he took the time to do a thorough and proper job - he set posts and let concrete cure. During that time he built the gates and panels at his shop which made for a tight fit between posts (no gaps). He even added an additional board to brace panels against twisting even though not requried - it is wood after all and some warping would be expected. I've seen some companies that throw a fence up in a day. I wouldn't want that so I'm glad Keith had explained how he would build a fence.
Fourth, he always kept me informed of his schedule and when he was going to charge my credit card (for deposit and completion).
Fifth, he encouraged me to raise questions or concerns while he and his team worked. He made sure that I was happy with how the work was proceeding and how the final product appeared.
Finally, both he and his staff were friendly, professional, and efficient. The final product looks great and I am very happy with it. He ensured that my yard was left as clean as when he arrived. I have to give him credit for working in less than ideal circumstances as my townhome is set quite far in so he had to naviagate an easement cluttered with junk and improperly sized gates. The gate prevented him from brining in equipment to dig holes so he and his team had dig everythign by hand (and there were quite a few rocks).
I've already passed off his business card to a work colleague who is looking to build a fence. I wouldn't hesitate to recommned Keith to anyone I know. Also, if and when I purchase another home, I won't hesitate to call Keith to help build me a fence.

I'm not sure if I can post pictures after submitting a review but if so, I will add pictures so you can see his work.

Fence

Keith's Proposal won me over because of the following.
He drills 9" holes in the ground, his competitor's holes are smaller. He uses 5" x 5" posts, his competitors use 4" x 4" posts. This matters because fences are basically large "sails" that need to be firmly attached to the ground
He uses white cedar and he does his own tongue and grooving. Our other quotes used Pressure treated lumber and the T & G's are commercially applied. The advantage of Keith's T & G is that the tongues and grooves are larger, therefore creating a more solid integrated panel. We Liked that
We are really happy with our new fence
Keith, from Keith's Fencing, was polite and a gentleman.
Treat him fairly and he will do the same for you.
I would recommend his company to anyone

Modular Iron Fence

We called Keith to come over and give us a quote, and he showed up the same day. He was very professional and very easy to deal with.

Keith called back the same night and provided us with a quote for the fence. He was slightly higher than other quotes we had received and when we discussed this, Keith was very accommodating and was able to lower his cost to match the competitors, all the while offering a superior product as well!

Keith was easy to communicate with throughout the project and he installed a great product. Installation was top notch and when we had concerns over a few details, Keith rectified them immediately.

Should I need any other fence work done at home, I will be calling Keith in for sure!

I would not hesitate to recommend Keith to anyone. He is a great guy and a great fence installer!

Deck and fence

We hired Keith for our fence (~100 ft) and 144sq ft deck installation. Keith was very professional throughout the process and very accomodating to our last minute requests for changes. The work was done in the time he had promised. We are extremely pleased with the quality of work and would happily recommend Keith to our friends. A happy customer.
