DOES ANYONE KNOW A GOOD INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR WHO DOES FENCES?

Even after complaints to Lowes corporate no one at the Brownsville store knows how to put an estimate in writing for the bank.  Today they asked I call an Alex.  I missed his call.  In the course of an hour I called the store 4 times with no answer. His message said the most they can do is give me a verbal estimate.  The bank wants a written estimate.  I have the written estimate on the pool and new windows.  For a month Lowes has been holding me up.

So I surrender.

I made the mistake of calling Home Depot to schedule an appointment for an estimate and after being transferred 3 times to hear people in the background say they know nothing about fences, I took the hint - Home Depot is not interested in selling fences.

My real issue is both stores have lots of job openings.  I help highly qualified people apply for the jobs.  They get emails from corporate that they have been cleared, and then the store managers in both stores will not give them interviews.  This is why they are so short handed and have so many inept employees

SO DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE I CAN TRUST TO DO THE NEW FENCE?

Yes, but someone with personal one on one experience can give me a better referral than google

Use the contractor that's building the border wall. They do very good quality work and they are bonded.

just count the feet and go find out how many pieces you need and what the price per piece is, then add cement and labor. just wing it man!

After that 6 inches of rain in an hour I had to replace 40 feet. I may just do a section at a time which is really 16 feet not 8. My back yard attaches to 4 neighbors and I still have to consult with them letting them know there may be a few days when there is not fence, but the separate pool fence will be locked.
