Great fence and Great people

I had Earl come and give me an estimate and he was great at explaining everything we needed. We wanted a chain-link fence for the back yard which would hooking into our neighbors' fences as well. Earl even rounded all his numbers down when adding up the estimate! Of the 3 estimates we got FenceWorks was the most competitive by hundreds of dollars. The installation was great as well! The team was four strong and finished our ~250 ft of fence in around 6 hours. They didn't complain when we changed our minds about a post-hole position and asked for a new one. They even helped cut a few low branches away so the fence could be straight with no obstructions! I was really impressed with the professionalism of all employees of FenceWorks, the estimator, office staff, and installers. The actual fence put in may have varied slightly from the estimate, but FenceWorks kept my price fixed at the estimated cost! Thanks, I will definitely recommend FenceWorks for any project.

You may find cheaper, but not better

Eric, sales rep for Casteel, came to give us an estimate to replace our whole HVAC system. As a new home owner, I've never dealt with an HVAC before. He was patient with my questions and taught me how the system works so I was prepared to make an educated decision for my purchase. I had 4 different estimates and have to admit, I spent more than I was expecting to on a new system but Casteel helped me to avoid a mistake in going with other companies, who wanted to sell me systems with old technologies (r22 or freeon is being phased out). I was educated about heat pumps and variable speed motors and the long term and comfort advantages of both. He helped us decide what was best for our house and budget. He was very knowledgeable about our old system and was quick to find it's short comings and mis-matched parts. While I could have found a cheaper system, it would not have been as good. Compared to other equivalent systems they were even the most competitive price! The installation was prompt and well done, although there was a general lack of respect by the technicians... They started to smoke on my property without asking and complained when I asked them not to, one sat on my table, only one of them (of 3) used booties over their boots inside the house, and they were very loud and used foul language regularly. But they did do a good job and I'm grateful that they knew what they were doing. Not as professional as I'd hope, but got the job done and stuck to the estimate!

Very Nice and Professional

Had Bryan give us an estimate for fencing in our back yard. Approximately 242ft of chain link fence. He was on time and very professional, we took the time to go over any options we were interested in and Great local and small company feel. I wanted to use America Fence, but was offered a better price by an equivalent company and just couldn't argue with the numbers. I'm sure they would ahve done a great job and wanted to leave positive feedback anyways! Thanks Bryan.

Fast Repairs

Ace & A came to repair my 32 years old HVAC. Of course they recommended replacing the system, but offered the price of the repair discount. Fast service. Thanks!

I'd stay away

We were contracted out to Nations Fence through Home Depot. I talked with Rob and got a free estimate, Rob was very nice and everything and we decided to just go with it to get it done... We get set up and give the down payment and he says he'll call for our installation appt (at most 2 weeks)... 2 full weeks go by and I call Rob to see what's up and he says they are having trouble with their supplier and don't have the equipment. So I give another week, calling Rob almost daily to get the update, but he never answers or returns my calls. I haven't talked to Rob since, I have to go through the office and find out that the parts would be another week at least! In the meantime I scheduled a couple other estimates (FenceWorks of Georgia and America Fence) both or which were hundreds of dollars less, but also more professional. I Finally had to call Home Depot customer service and get a number to a manager at Nations Fence and force my way out of the contract for a refund of my down payment. Nations Fence may do nice work, but they didn't treat me with respect. And would not cooperate with me or call me back, after numerous messages. Do Business with Nations Fence AT YOUR OWN RISK, as I'm still waiting to be credited back my down payment, over a month later! UPDATE- After numerous more calls to the Nations Fence office I was finally able to get my refund. Thanks for that, but I won't be calling again.
