“I would highly recommend Mike and the team.
They aren’t the most expensive and they are not the cheapest and are mid range in price. Mike is a local business man and owns the company, it is great to work with the owner and any issues are resolved (see below). He is fantastic to work worth and they do great work.
We initially contracted out for a 4 foot, scalloped wooden picket fence. All agreed to and signed off, 3 weeks later (on time as we agreed) the show up to put the posts in. 6 days later (1 day before they were supposed to come out to finish it off) I get a call from our developer saying our 4 foot fence violates the covenants. I called Mike and put the project on hold. After mush disputes and legal advice we decided to back down from the developer (too costly to fight) and try and figure out how we could get a 6 foot fence put in (as per requirements).
Mike came out and suggested a few different options and gave his recommendation (the less expensive of the options). The team came our and moved posts, turned 4 foot posts into 6 foot posts with reinforcement and a few days later came to put the boards on. The quality of work is outstanding, considering the debacle caused by the developer and changing covenants.
Mike was great to work with through, the team is friendly and professional and I got value for money. I don’t typically write reviews, I normally consume them, but this is my first review and would happily be a reference for Advantage Fencing.”

“Estimate was prompt. Took about 4 weeks to get started, but that was not an issue. Completed the work about a week after setting the posts. Got good comments about the quality of materials. Neighbor jumped in and had his fence replaced at the same time. Quite pleased with the result. Would, and have, recommended to others.”

“Mike installed a custom fence that I ordered in from another state. He had never worked with the product before. We had several meetings where he asked a lot of questions and researched the installation of the product. The fence is done and looks great. He went out of his way to make sure it was going to be right. Overall I was pleased with the experience.”

“Contacted owner, Mike Paladino in late October with request to get a bid for 54′ of fence. I wasn’t sure what type of fencing I wanted to go with, but after multiple bids I went with Advantage due to responsiveness, reputation and price.
I was impressed with everything about the service I received. With e-mail communication it made the process easier for me when phone contact is not always an option.
I was given several prices on several styles of fences and once I made the decision, it was completed in the time frame originally given to me, which considering the cold weather was impressive.
I would recommend Advantage Fencing to anyone looking for a quality fence, reasonable price and timely installation.”

“Mike was a pleasure to work with , and was always reasonable and honest. His estimate (and final cost) were $1000 less than another fencing company in town, and the work was excellent. They did the work when they said they would and finished it quickly. When there was a problem he dealt with it personally and fixed it right away. We are very happy with how the fence looks, and with the quality. I definitely recommend them highly.”

“When I explained over the telephone what was happening, the man who answered (sorry I did not write down his name) suggested that it could be severe cold caused some heaving. He stated that he would come out, but if I was agreeable, I should wait for a couple of days with warmer temps and then try it again. If the gate still would not open, he would come right out and get it fixed for me. He was correct!! When the weather warmed, the gate opened without a problem.
I called two other companies for bids, and they each wanted to “fix” the problem right away and charge between $150-$250!
It was refreshing to have a company offer good advice without taking a customer to the cleaners!! I WILL call them the next time I have fencing needs! Thank you!”

“Fantastic experience – A+++!
Called for a quote – Mike was out same day. I think we were lucky in that regard because he stated he usually returns calls within 48 hours (still more than reasonable).
Mike bid the fence on 4-6-2014, bid was accepted next day. We were candid that we were in no “rush” to get the fence in, but that we would like it done by the end of May if possible. Mike committed to have it done by the end of May and it was (on 5-30-2014). If you have a time sensitive install, bank on about 4-6 weeks wait from the time the bid is accepted until the fence is actually installed – he will set expectations and meet them with integrity.
The fence turned out fantastic – looks gorgeous! The crew cleaned up the yard, left the excess dirt exactly where we requested it be left, and were more than respectful of the property for as long as they were present. The crew worked quick… 1 day digging/setting posts… 3-4 day delay… and 1 day installing the remainder of the pickets, cross beams, caps, etc. The quality of the work looks to be more than acceptable – we had severe weather last night with tornadoes forecast, 50mph straight line winds, etc… we don’t have a panel lying in the street so I feel pretty good about the ability of the fence to hold up under the weather.
Competitively speaking we didn’t call and price any other vendors/contractors because we were impressed with punctualtiy, polish, and professionalism. Mike and crew are so far out in front in terms of the reviews here on Angie’s List, we didn’t feel like we needed to waste time getting bids. People get reviews like this for a reason. At the close, we made the final payment, Mike stopped out and checked the quality of the work, had a good chat.
I don’t Pollyanna reviews – Mike and Advantage Fencing are the real deal.”
