We previously had Almac build a deck and a paving stone patio and were very pleased with the results. This time we contacted them to replace an old chain link fence along one side and the back of the yard with a wood fence and to construct beds for planting adjacent to the new fence. Allan, the owner of the company, assisted us in planning the work. We decided on a six foot tall fence with pressure treated lumber for the frame and cedar boards. We also planned the beds next to the fence as well as one in our front yard. Lastly, we planned a stone retaining wall to replace an old wood one that was collapsing. Allan got back to us quickly with a quote for the work and a date to begin was arranged. Allan introduced us to the job foreman just prior to the start of the construction. All of the old chain link fencing was removed and disposed of, the new fence was built, beds and retaining wall constructed and finishing touches with new sod done within a week. Each day the crew arrived on time, worked steadily through the day and left the yard clean before leaving. Communication was excellent, and any questions we had were answered quickly and clearly. The workmanship is excellent, and we have had many compliments on the quality and appearance of all elements of the project.
The fence between our property and our neighbour's had been in place for many years and so we included our neighbour in the discussion prior to moving ahead with the new fence, even though the new one is built on our property. Both during and after the completion of the project our neighbour told us how impressed she was with the professionalism of the workers and how careful they were to leave everything on both sides of the fence better than they found it.
We are very happy with all the work which has provided us with both beauty and privacy. We would not hesitate to use Almac again in the future.
