Ratings and Reviews

  • Excellent communication from start to finish. We obtained multiple bids and made some changes along the way. American Fence was responsive, communicated clearly the entire process and our dogs are loving our new fenced in area!

  • Alex came and gave us an estimate for our house. He was very courteous and on time. The estimate itself was very detailed and helpful. Pricing seemed fine compared to how much it would cost to do it myself. We ended up not getting the fence because we went with an electric fence for our dog (main reason we were getting a fence). Overall, we were very satisfied with Alex's professional manner and quote.

  • Alex and his crew did a great job from start to finish. Thanks to all of you.

  • Wonderful company! Very talented builders! We are very happy and excited to have this beautiful addition to our home! Thank You Brandon and team you did a Fantastic job!

  • We bought a new home and wanted a 6ft white vinyl fence with two gates for our dogs. We are an odd-shaped and rounded corner lot. American Fence was one of four bids that we received for the project and they were the lowest bid. Though I typically choose one of the middle range bids it was the warranty, price, large company size, and Alex's professionalism that sold me on American Fence. Bottom line is that we EVENTUALLY got exactly what we wanted. It's a high quality product with professional installation. Great warranty. This is a company and not a local operation. I believe they're headquartered in Nebraska. They'll be around for a long time. Other local operations can't guarantee that; and frankly they charge more. A few recommendations... Alex will be the guy to measure and give you a quote. He's absolutely awesome and should probably be CEO some day. Brandon is the office manager who will oversee the project. I've never met him but he's responsive to emails and gets things done. Between the two of them you'll be enamored with the company and ready to handover some cash. However, neither Alex nor Brandon will be present when your fence is installed. Neither of them will inspect the project when it's complete. The installers are pros but they don't know all of the important details you discussed with Alex and Brandon. Make sure you are PRESENT for the installation and standing over their shoulders. They will make judgment calls according to what they would want for themselves. They will not knock on the door to ask preferences or questions. They will not knock on the door to say "we're done, what do you think?" You'll just look outside and they'll be gone. Alex should do a final walk-through with the customer but this is not their current policy. I've had to have them come back for warranty repairs after a major wind storm. They repaired the gate so that it's ready for anything except a tornado. I'm 100% satisfied and do not regret my decision. I encourage you to use this company with the cautions mentioned above. They are currently working on a commercial project around the corner from my neighborhood. They are obviously trusted by other professionals in the community.

  • They saved us and at a really reasonable price! We had paid another company waaaaay too much money to install what ended up being just a big pile of useless aluminum that our dogs were able to just push their way out of! The guys came, removed all of the material leaving the posts, installed new fence material (heavier and properly stretched) and added a bottom rail all in one day! The only way the dogs will escape now is if they dig under or climb over and I don't think they're ambitious enough to do that. We finally have peace of mind! Thank you!

  • Fence turned out fantastic, and they were so flexible with our rescheduling issues along the way. Once they began, they finished quicker than anticipated! Heidi, Alex and crew were great to work with. Would recommend.

  • I worked with Alex from the Rochester, MN branch, and he was awesome. Very good communication, letting me know times and dates that they would be at our house (it was tough to schedule due to waiting for the ground to thaw). We had a slight issue with the locates, which he called me right away and let me know of the delay. The installers did a great job, and our dogs couldn't be happier. I would gladly recommend American Fence Company to anyone that asks.

  • I would highly recommend American Fence Company to whoever is looking to get a fence installed. We had about 320 feet of 6 foot vinyl fence installed with 2 single gates and a double gate around our back yard. Our estimator was prompt, listen to what we where looking for and answers all our question. The estimate was in the ball park of what we where expecting and was cheapest out of the other companies we had out. I normally don’t go with the cheapest but our interaction with the whole staff at American Fence Company made our choice easy. Our installation was done sooner than expected because they where able to get all the material in sooner than expected because we had this done at the time of vinyl shortage/Covid. We have had our fence for 2 years now and after the first year we notice our gates no working like they originally did after install so I let them know about the issue and they came back and fixed them for me in a timely manner. Thanks American Fence for keeping our pets in the yard and our children safe.

  • The staff was very easy to work with hand no problems with them, and product is awesome. I would recommend them to anyone needing a fence.

  • While all we needed was a simple fix, from start to finish, we were so pleased and impressed with the service we received from American Fence Company. I called and explained how our gate latch was no longer working - - a critical element to our fence as we need to keep our dog safely in our back yard. The office staff was able to send someone out that week and the repair was made that day. Top quality work and pleasant efficient staff. I would highly recommend this fence company.

  • Very professional and amazing workmanship, I love my new fence! Thank you!!

  • Did a great job with getting me a quote and a ballpark figure despite not having my measurements finalized. Friendly service and quick responses.

  • They did not install a fence for me. However, I had been having a very difficult time even getting a response from other companies as I needed a very small section of chain link fence to supplement after moving our existing fence. I spoke with Summer and Bronson and they told me to come in and they could help. They were kind, helpful, and then, as icing on the cake, very generous. It seemed to me that they run the rest of their operation in a knowledgable, professional, and skilled way. I would highly recommend giving them a chance to help you if you need a fence installed or fixed.

  • The staff at American fencing rushed our order for a great price! Because of them we were able to get our fenced in yard all up the day after we moved into our new home. I highly recommend them for all of your fencing needs!

  • I purchased a bunch of fencing from them and they were great, I was in a pinch and needed a good amount of chain link. They had it all on hand, John got my order ready quickly and pickup was smooth.

  • I can’t find my first review, but after the manager got involved he was super helpful and kind! The issue is being resolved and I am satisfied with their job.

  • Called around for an estimate, got a runaround. I called American fence company, they came out the next day to measure it up and quote me. I hired them and we love our enclosed yard! The installers were super busy, yet they found time to get mine done. Very professional, and a pleasure to work with.

  • Great group of people at American fence!!
