Fence Replacement

The team at First Choice Fence worked very quickly and diligently. We replaced 3 sides and 1 gate. Pratema was very responsive, and always available to answer questions. I would gladly recommend them for any fence work.

Two sides of fencing completed and gate

Hi Pratema was really helpful providing a quote and being patient whilst we spoke to neighbours as splitting cost. Helped with choice of fence and her knowledge came through. Team were hard working and fence went up in just a couple of days. Originally only did one side of fence but other neighbours liked it so much they wanted to get the other side done too! Pratema came through and completed the request thank you!!

Great Work putting up a Chain Link Fence!

Pratema was a pleasure to work with from start to finish! We went through the entire job over the phone and through pics (email). She then came to site went through every detail and finalized the contract. The team came on site at right time and did a great job putting in the fence. At any step, if there was any tweak required (due to tree in the way, etc) they notified me on the spot and came up with a solution.
Pratema also looked at the entire work throughout the day and at the end to make sure everything was up to par. Thanks a lot for your work!

Fencing Project

I am writing this for my mother who is not computer savvy. She was very pleased with the service and the workmanship for removing an old fence and replacing it with a new fence. She is very pleased with the new fence, thank you.

Yard Fencing

Pratema and team did a great job of fencing part of our yard. She was quick to respond, came for site inspection and provided a reasonable quote.
Before the work day she came for another inspection and her team came on the appointed day and did a good job.
I had told her that the fenced area was intended as a dog run and even though we have slopes her team made sure there were no gaps to the ground.

Chain link and wooden fence

Pratema was quick to respond to my query and arranged for a visit. We discussed the options available to me considering the needs of the site and my budget. The work included a chain link front and side yard fence and also a wooden portion to give privacy to the backyard. The team completed the work as scheduled. I found them efficient and professional. Overall the job was satisfactory.

Chain Link Fence Install

Pratema was quick to reply to my inquiries, came out to view the job and the price for material and install was fair and reasonable. She and her team were very professional and a pleasure to work with. We're very happy with the fence; great workmanship and it looks great. Thanks Pratema and crew!

Wasted My Time By Not Starting An Agreed Upon Project With A Deposit

It looks like this company has done a lot of high quality fence work and I'm sure they are experienced. But I did want to share one instance where Pratema and her team behaved extremely unprofessional - they basically weaseled themselves out of doing an estimated project and ended up wasting a lot of my time.

To acknowledge upfront, our town house property wasn't an easy project to begin with. We needed 2 x 23 foot side fences replaced without good access (as we're facing a condo and material would have to be brought over an existing fence).

Nevertheless, we were upfront about this, and Pratema visited our property to understand the situation. She took pictures, we agreed to a price, put in a written estimate, she took a deposit and we set a date. I took the time to obtain permission from neighbours and the condo, and moved patio furniture around.

Today, the crew arrived for the agreed start date and I could see from their body language that there was hesitation to start. After 30 minutes of looking around, Pratema basically decided that they can't do one side of the fence and pulled out of the agreed estimate.

My gut feel is that the project was too complicated for the amount, and they prefer larger and easier projects. So they found a reason to disband.

This alone is highly unprofessional and I would not recommend them to anyone (even though she was nice enough to give back the deposit).

Hi Jakub,

First and foremost, I would like to apologize for the fact that your time was wasted and we were not able to complete the project as discussed.  As explained to you on the day we came in to complete the project we needed to access both sides of the fence in order to effectively complete the job but the neighbors deck is attached to the fence. You asked our team to  jump over the fence from the building to access it where the building plants  were close to the fence . We were told by the security if anything should go wrong it's our responsibility and that is not something we were just comfortable doing. The deposit was also returned to you as these were unusual circumstances and we understand that this was an inconvenience to you. We wish you the best of luck with your project. .
