Pressure treated fence/dog run

We hired Stephan and his crew in August of 2016 to build our fence. It turned out great; the fence is beautiful, they were communicative and always on time, his crew was friendly and respectful... couldn’t have asked for a better group of guys to build our fence. Last month (February 2018) my husband hit the fence with our tractor and damaged some of the panels. We called Stephan and he was there the following day for the repairs. Although the damages weren’t covered under warranty, he only charged us for the parts and not for the labour - a total of $75 to repair our fence which we felt was pretty generous on his part. We will continue to refer his business to anyone who needs this kind of work!

Wood fence

It was the end of this summer 2016 when I started searching for a new company to put in a new fence when Align Fence referred me to Harder contracting. At first the gentleman who came out was very kind and understanding of what transpired with another contractor who was fired off my property for substandard and unacceptable work. I agreed to hire Harder contracting to install my new pressure treated privacy fence after I had the old one removed by a different company. Day one every seemed to be going fine with Harder contracting and quick till I realized the boys have followed the grade of my property when they were clearly instructed to follow level with my sidewalks. The supervisor advised that is would be an additional cost to me regardless of their mistake and there would be an additional $180 cost for materials if they were to make the fence level since they've cut the boards down 5"8 instead of the 6"2 I requested. Not to disrupt progress I agreed though this was not my mistake and only not to hinder progress. Harder Contracting had the audacity to keep the old material without permission and already had it loaded away on there truck. At this point I said keep it to avoid any arguments. As a few days went by after the job was done most of the boards warped and separated so bad due to the lack of overlapping, most like to save themselves a board per section and staples started coming out. Harder Contracting missed three appointments to come suggest solutions or repairs and only asked for more money to come out again, apparently the lack of work quality is my fault again somehow. My calls and attempts to contact them have fallen to deaf ears. I got charged a premium for 188 feet of fencing at almost $50/linear foot, $8000 for another substandard job by another wannabe Edmonton construction company.

Wooden fence and deck

After a conversation with my wife about having our fence and deck built professionallly vs doing it myself, I walked out the front door to find one of their door hangers on my door. I usually throw the things out but I figured 'what the heck' and gave them a call.
We got a couple other quotes as well but hired Harder Contracting based on on their price.

They did all of the posts first, then built the deck - which was 10x12 feet, and looks awesome. The next day I went to work at 8 and they were just starting on the fence, got home at 5:30 and it was done too. We really couldn't be happier with our choice.

Will post pictures soon.

Thank you Stephen, you have our vote!

Couldn't be happier with my fence

Stephan is an interesting guy. I don't mean that in a bad way. Once we gave him the go-ahead, he was working in our backyard from 6AM til dark all week. Other contractors told us our fence would take about 2 weeks to build, and Stephan promised he could have it done in a week so that we could let our dog out in the yard. He had the thing done in 4 days, and it's beautiful. We have hired him to build our deck in June as well.

We've had lots of bad experiences with contractors in the past (we built our house ourselves) but Stephan took that bad taste right out of my mouth. If you're looking for an honest, hard working contractor that actually cares about his clients, he's your guy.

Thanks for all of your hard work (and for the Tim-bits, John?). I would highly recommend this company to anyone who reads this!

Fence in Sherwood Park,

Harder Contracting did a fabulous job on our fence. They were friendly, courteous and respectful. They kept us updated throughout the building process and went above and beyond what was specified in our contract. My husband and I couldn't be any happier with our choice.

Price wise, they are average. We got 3 estimates on our fence before deciding to go with them, and theirs fell right in the middle.

We would highly recommend this company if you need a fence, deck, etc.
