Our Company Standards
It is unfortunate that there are no standards, regulations, or licensing requirements for fencing contractors to meet to ensure the minimum standard of quality. Choosing the cheaper option is the biggest mistake people make when picking the right fence company. Hence the fence might not last up to five years or through its first hurricane. We take pride in saying that we have not lost a fence since Hurricane Lili (2002). Since then, we have upgraded our post thickness and installation process.
I would like to take the opportunity to educate my customers on how a quality fence is installed, from labor to material. [To read more, click here.]
Prior to 2002, we used 0.065 posts and found that it could not withstand hurricane-force winds. As a licensed contractor in the State of Louisiana, you have to stand behind the quality of your workmanship for one year by law. That is why we no longer install 4x4, 4x6, and 6x6 treated pine wood posts or 1x6 treated pine fence boards on fencing taller than 5ft. Those materials have the tendency to twist, bow, and cup, therefore tends to create an unsightly fence over time.
Many people have found that after 3-4 years or when it's time to sell your house, you have to reinvest in repairing your fence. The gates are the most important parts of a fence because that is what gets the most wear and tear. It's not rocket science to build a good fence but a good quality gate separates the good from the bad.
Quality Guaranteed: There are many fence companies that are cheaper than us but there are none that use the same quality material. Like anything else, you get what you pay for.
Security Deposit: Stinson Fencing does not require a security deposit because we have accounts in good standing for all materials purchased we do not require payment until your job is complete and you are 100% satisfied.
Employee Standards: All of our employees must go through a thorough background check and drug screening before joining the team.
