After more than 40 years in the business of installing both residential and commercial fencing, we know you have many things in mind when searching for the best Farmington Hills fence company to complete your project. Nobody installs a fence haphazardly and we at Veterans Fence know that there is no such thing as a “little job” where installing a fence is concerned.
Aluminium Fencing is an Often-Overlooked Option Which Looks Good and has a Long Life
It would seem that a lot of local fence companies in the Farmington Hills have somehow forgotten this. Right now it seems that everyone wants to focus on pressuring homeowners to buy the most expensive type of fencing on the market. My dad, Jim Teets, never operated our family business in such a manner and there’s no way that I’m going to do so either. Back when I was a boy, I remember continually being told that the traditional chain link fencing was the foundation of any fence business and never to turn down a job just because the homeowner wanted to go with inexpensive chain link fencing. “Boys,” he would say, “it’s usually the woman-of-the-house who is driving to have a fence put in and her #1 concern is making sure that her tykes and the little dog she just gave them stay in the right place, secure from harm.” I believe he was right and if the entire world turns and marches the other way there will be one Farmington Hills fence company that stays the course and provides customers what they want whether chain link, vinyl, or wood.
Eventually, I bought the company from dad years ago and I can attest that I’ve seen changes in what people like in a residential fence over the years. Style, durability, and easy maintenance have made the privacy fence a top pick for local residents. That being said, I’ve made a point never to lose sight of the fact that being kind and courteous to each one of my customers and their neighbors when performing a fence installation and at the same time being quick to address any concerns are the things which are more important in the minds of those looking for a new fence than the color or material ever could be.

You can’t see him, but there’s a little dog being kept in that yard behind this attractive Cedar fence.
Notice that the term “best value” was used here. Not “cheapest”. As you can probably agree from past experience, going with the cheapest version of anything is usually a bad idea. Other Farmington Hills fence companies operate on the idea that they can only compete with older, better established and reputable companies such as ours by offering dangerously low prices.
Yes, I said “dangerously” low. How is this dangerous? To put very simply, much of the expense where installing fencing is concerned is related to the cost of materials. Pretty much all fence companies in the southeast Michigan area, from Ann Arbor to Grosse Ile, buy their materials from a small group of suppliers. That being the case, there is no way to bring the cost of materials down because there is no Farmington Hills fence company that has attempted to “become the factory” and make their fencing from raw materials.
The only way then, to bring prices down significantly when materials cost is fixed is to cut corners. Either you have to hire low-quality workers who don’t demonstrate a high amount of responsibility in their lives and thus can work for just enough money to pay for some cheeseburgers and fund their monthly subscription to their favorite World of Warcraft online game or you end up skipping out on necessary local permits which puts you at risk that the job won’t be done to the proper standards or you get hodge-podge service where a job may be started on a Monday by digging holes for posts, but not finished for another 3 weeks while the company tries to tie up loose ends on previous jobs so they can get paid. Whichever way you look at it, there is a very real “cost” associated with going with the cheapest provider in town which is why we say some quotes are “dangerously” low. It is our sincerest desire to provide the greatest overall experience in both the design, installation, and long-term enjoyment of your fence at the best price when all factors are weighed in the balance.
