DIY aluminum fencing: Service and value wins again

Last year my wife and I decided to have an in ground swimming pool installed but were concerned about the cost.  After about a month of research we finally narrowed our pool companies down to two.  Then the “what can you do for me that the other company can’t” began.  We wanted to do as much work as possible for cost savings.  We requested bids for both complete installation (including deck, fence, and landscaping) and just pool.  We decided on just the pool and do the deck, landscape, and fence ourselves.

The decking and landscape was an easy choice for materials.  The fence was a different story.  Every local building supply and hundreds of on-line companies sell aluminum fencing.  After receiving several estimates from four different suppliers, iFence had by far the best deal.  I was not only impressed with the price but the quality of the material was better as well.  Thicker walls on the posts and rails come standard with iFence, you have to pay for the same thickness with other companies.  And some companies don’t offer a .080 thick wall on post.  The web-site ( is amazing, very informative and easy to navigate.  It has everything you need to make your selection and decide your needs.  The design studio feature is very nice, you can see how each style will look in a home setting…choices, choices, choices.

Another important fact about iFence is that the customer service is second to none!!!  My sales representative (John) talked me through every step of the order.  He asked questions to get me started in the right direction, helped me decide on the correct style, color, and configuration.  John at iFence even gave me some installation advice to make my life easier during installation.  Payment and shipping was seamless.  And once my fence arrived, all I had to do was unpack it and install.  Every part was there in perfect condition, how rare is that?  After installation our pool area was the talk of the neighborhood.  Everyone kept asking about our fence and how great it looked.

I know it’s only a year old but it still looks great.  With literally 8-10 children (including my two) and several parents in and out our pool area daily, we have had zero issues with our iFence.  We are so impressed with the product and service of iFence, I just ordered another fence to enclose an area at our walkout basement to contain our dogs.  And again the customer service (John) was great!

My point in all of this is there may be a better company, there may be a better price and fence but I have not found it.  By purchasing the fence through and installing it ourselves we saved over $1500.   ifence sells a great product, the service is impeccable.  I would recommend to anyone wanting to install a fence, save yourself some time and headache by calling iFence FIRST!!

Very Satisfied Customer,
