Cedar Mountain Fence Company had the privilege of installing a very large fence in Wilmington IL. The customer had a huge backyard and wanted the whole thing fenced in with a very custom fence. The backyard was 500’ in total footage, which is really the size of 2-3 yards put together. The fence installation crew was on the project for 4 days. They had to take their time installing the fence and pay extra attention to detail in order to make sure the customer was 100% satisfied. That is something you need to know about Cedar Mountain Fence Company, is that we never leave until the job is done exactly how the customer wants it. You can read reviews of other fence companies online, and you will see over and over again, the main compliant of most fence companies is that when something goes wrong, they are not willing to continue to work on it to make it right. Customers go online and complain that something went wrong with their fence project, and the company they choose to work with is no where to be found. Most complaints online are about something that went wrong, and when push comes to shove, the fence companies are unwilling to fix their mistake. Here at Cedar Mountain Fence Company we have never had a customer compliant that we could not fully address and resolve so that the customer was 100% satisfied with how their fence turned out. The bottom line with fence installation is that you have to be willing to go the extra mile and go above and beyond in order to make people happy.
Many of our competitors are installing 5-10 fences a day. When you move at that pace, they are looking to get in and get out as quickly as possible. Most of the cheap laborers used by other fence companies are paid by the footage of the fence they install. So they have no incentive to take their time and get the project done right. They need to move as fast as possible in order to make as much money as possible. When the fence installer is paid by the footage, they make money for every linear foot that they install. So there goal really is to move as fast as possible in order to make as much money as possible. In most cases these cheap fence laborers want to do 2+ jobs a day in order to earn a decent living. Many of the owners of these bigger fence companies take advantage of cheap fence installers and do not pay them well. So when you have a fence installation crew moving fast to make more money and you have a large fence company not paying them a fair wage, you are bound to have a fence installed that is very low in quality and not put together well. Here at Cedar Mountain Fence Company we pay our fence installation crews top dollar and extra when the job is done right. We are looking for fence installers that take their time and pay attention to detail. We don’t install more than 1-2 fences a day in order to maintain the highest level of fence quality craftsmanship. We know that if we take our time, pay attention to detail, and put our best foot forward in all of our fence installation, we will become known in the industry for having the highest quality of fence installation available. We want to be known online and off line for being the best fence company in the industry.
The Wilmington fence customer choose one of our custom fences that is hand built on site piece by piece. They selected to have 500' of Vinyl Privacy fence with a decorative spindle top with a cut scallop design. This is a beautiful fence, but it is not easy to install, and we know from experience that you have to take your time when installing this type of fence. It is detailed and intricate in every way. As you can see in the fence photos, there are small spindles that are custom inserted into the top of the fence every few inches. These spindles do not come pre-made, we literally insert them one-by-one along the top of the fence to make this one of a kind custom design. The spindles need to be installed evenly and at the right height in order to maintain the cut scallop design throughout the entire fence.
But before we were able to install this massive fence, we first had to take down and haul away the old fence. This is no easy takes and takes time in order to remove the old fence properly. We loaded up all the old fencing material onto the truck and we remove it from the property for the customer. If you are thinking about having a fence removed, please contact Cedar Mountain Fence Company and we can give you more information about taking down and hauling away your old fence at little to no charge depending on the size of the yard.
The customer also had a very big backyard, so we did not have to remove the dirt from the premises. As you may know, with every hole we dig, there is a significant amount of dirt that we unearth from the ground. It creates little piles of dirt all around the fence line next to each hole. Well in some cases our customers pay us to haul the dirt away. But this customer was looking to save money on his fence, so he decided to spread the dirt around on his property. It was a great option for him to cut down on the cost of the fence installation. Depending on your yard, you may have some space where you can spread around the dirt and it will not hinder the beauty of your backyard. Please contact Cedar Mountain Fence Company for more information about whether you need to remove the dirt from your backyard, or whether you can spread it around like our Wilmington customer did in their yard.
If you are looking to buy a fence, please contact Cedar Mountain Fence Company for all your wood, vinyl, and aluminum needs, we provide fence installation for Plainfield IL and the surrounding suburbs.
This New Lenox customer was looking for an aluminum fence. So we had Steve one of the owners go out to their house to provide them with a free fence estimate. The customers had done their research and read all the reviews online, and knew that Cedar Mountain Fence Company was the top rated fence company on both Google and Facebook. So they already knew they wanted to do business with us. The customers yard was unique, so they wanted to do a mix of both 4ft and 5ft aluminum fencing throughout different parts of their backyard. Cedar Mountain Fence Company specializes in providing high quality aluminum fencing customized to meet your specifications.
Cedar Mountain Fence Company had the privilege of installing this fence in New Lenox IL just a few days ago. The customer decided to have 345' ft of aluminum fence installed in their backyard. That may not sound like a lot, but 345 ft of fence is a big job for any fence company to tackle. Cedar Mountain Fence Company was on site for 3 full days to make sure the fence was installed properly with care and attention to detail. Many of our competitors would have slapped this fence up in a day or two. Our competitors often sub contract the fence installation out to cheap laborers in order to produce more fences per day. We take a completely different approach at Cedar Mountain Fence Company. We don't sub contract out the labor. We have our own dedicated fence installation crews that handle all the work in house. Why you may ask? Because we have found that when you sub contract out the jobs to cheap laborers the quality inevitably suffers and the customers have a bad experience because they can't communicate with the crews. So instead of trying to use cheap laborers and do 10 fences a day, Cedar Mountain Fence Company focuses on installing one quality fence per day. We use our own people for every job to ensure the highest level of quality and craftsmanship. We are a family owned and operated fence company made up of a father and son team. The dad sells the jobs and the son installs all the fences. That way you get a high level of family tradition when you choose to have your fence installed by Cedar Mountain Fence Company.
The customer was so happy with how the fence turned out, that they gave Cedar Mountain Fence Company a 5 star review on Facebook before we even left their house. Don't take our word for it, read what the customer had to say:
"We had a great experience from start to finish with cedar mountain fencing! I would recommend them to anyone looking for amazing quality of work and customer service! Thank you we love our fence!!" - Lisa Murphy

Cedar Mountain Fence Company specializes in wood, vinyl, and aluminum fence installation in Joliet IL and the surrounding suburbs. We had the privilege of installing 260' of fence in Joliet IL just a few days ago. The customer selected a 6' wood privacy fence with a dog eared straight top cut at the top of the fence. This is the best type of fence if you are looking for maximum security and privacy in your backyard. A 6ft fence keeps unwanted guests out. Also, with a 6ft fence your neighbors will not be able to see into your backyard. So whether you are enjoying a day by the pool or you are entertaining dinner guests out back, a 6ft privacy fence will give you the privacy you need to relax and enjoy your backyard. A 6ft privacy fence is also ideal if you have a dog. Its high enough so the dog cannot jump over the fence, but its also solid, so the neighborhood kids can't stick their fingers in between the fence. We have heard to many stories of dog bites from customers that have spaced picket fences where there is space in between the boards.
Our Joliet IL fence customer also requested a steel frame drive gate. Here at Cedar Mountain Fence Company we build custom drive gates that will last a lifetime. We make sure to use only the highest grade steel for our fences. On this project we used 4" inch steel posts, so that the gate would never lean or sag over time. We custom wielded the chainlink gate for maximum strength. If you are thinking about having a gate that cars can drive through, then you want to make sure that it is built to last. Many of our customers choose to have steel driveway gates, because it adds an extra level of security to their vehicles. That way they can pull the car in and close the gate behind their vehicle. This lessens the chance of someone tampering with your car while it is parked outside.
The Joliet IL homeowner was so thrilled with the way his fence turned out, that he and his wife gave us a 5 star Facebook review before we even left the house. Don't take our word for it, here is what they said
"Amazing!!! My pups got to run free for the first time in their yard oh the FUN THEY HAD this was real hard Terrain to work with and they did it. For years we will be happy, THANK YOU" - Cathleen Ma Doolin
This particular customer owned 5 dogs. Up until this point, the dogs were not able to run free in the backyard. This new fence provided these dogs with the freedom they so desperately needed. If you own a dog and you are thinking about getting a new fence, please don't hesitate to contact Cedar Mountain Fence Company for all your fencing needs.

We recently had the pleasure of installing 200’ of cedar fence in Naperville IL. The customer selected a 6’ solid privacy fence with a custom V-Out design. View Cedar Fence Gallery
Too Many Jobs=Lower Quality
Now it might not look like it from the photos, but 200’ of fence is no small project. In fact, we were out on this fence project for 2 days because we wanted to take our time and make sure to provide the highest quality of fence craftsmanship available today. Make sure when choosing a fence company for your next project, that you don’t select a fence company that is doing too much work. What do I mean by that? Well some of the bigger well known fence companies do 5-10 fence installations a day. Where in comparison we do 1-2 fence installations a day. We have worked closely with these other fence companies over the years, and what we have found is that the more fences being installed during the busy season, the more likely that the quality of your fence will suffer. Now I am not saying that all big fence companies are bad, but I am saying that when a company grows too fast or installs too many fences a day, we have personally seen that the quality of not only the fencing material, but also the installation service suffers. Here at Cedar Mountain Fence Company, we make sure not to take on too much work, as to run the risk of letting our quality be diminished in any way.
Dirt Removal Ain't Easy
Our Naperville fence customer also wanted us to remove the dirt from their property. This is a fairly common practice and something you should ask about when getting a fence estimate (contact us today). As the fence installers dig the holes, they create piles of dirt next to each hole. 1 or 2 is not a big deal, but if you are left to clean up 30-40 piles of dirt, its no small project. So here at Cedar Mountain Fence Company, when one of our fence estimators comes out to your home to give you a price on your next fence, make sure to ask whether or not dirt removal is included, and if it is, what is the charge for that service. I can tell you from personal experience that it is a much better idea to have the professional fence installers take the dirt with them upon completion of the fence installation.

Need A Fence Repair?
Today we had the great privilege of helping a customer in their time of need. Here at Cedar Mountain Fence Company, the majority of the work we do for customers throughout the year involves us installing new fences. But occasionally there are times when we get called to do a fence repair job. Depending on the needs of the customer and the type of fence they have, we determine if we are the best solution for the customers fence repair. If we feel that we are a good fit and have the fence materials the customer needs, then we offer to make the fence repair right away.
Our customer was hit by a bad storm and their fence broke apart. Literally the storm was so powerful that it cracked the fence posts that were holding up the fence panel. So a section of the fence completely fell down causing there to be about a 7’ gap in our customers fence.
This was a big problem for a variety of reasons, such as loss of security and privacy, but most importantly because this customer had a dog. They waited awhile before they decided to fix their fence, so for the last couple of months they have not been able to let their dog outside in the backyard without a leash. As you can imagine this was not a fun process during the winter months here in Illinois. The customer was finally fed up with going out in the cold with the dog every time it had to go to the bathroom.
Maybe I Can Repair the Fence Myself?
Before our customer decided to call Cedar Mountain Fence Company, he thought he was going to make the fence repair himself. He even went as far as starting to dig out the fence posts, only to realize the ground was frozen and in the end he hurt his back in the process. So after searching on online, the homeowner found Cedar Mountain Fence Company’s listing on Google, and noticed immediately that we had the highest ratings of any fence company in the area. This gave him confidence that we were a reputable fence company and most likely would be able to handle his fence repair project. So he gave us a call to get a price on the fence repair.
Repair Made The Same Week
The good news for him was that we are still in the slow season, so it made it very easy for us to come out and repair his fence in a timely manner. The customer called us on Monday and we were out on site by Friday of the same week. For those that don’t know, usually a customer would have to wait several weeks before a fence company could come out and make the repair.
No Easy Fence Repairs
Even a fence repair as simple as fixing 2 fence posts and rehanging a fence panel is quite a bit of work. Before we could make the necessary repairs to the fence, we had to first dig out the old fence posts, which were both set in concrete. Once the old fence posts were removed, we were able to install 2 brand new fence posts, which we also re-set in concrete. After the fence posts were firmly in place, we then proceeded to re-hang the old fence panel, which thankfully was not damaged during the storm. As you can see in the photos, the new fence posts are a different color than the stained fence, but the homeowner is going to stain the posts to match the fence as soon as the weather gets a little nicer.
Positive Online Review
Our customer was so happy overall with how we repaired his fence, that he gave us a positive Google review before we even left his house. This just further ads to the dozens of positive reviews we have online.

Plainfield Fence Installation
We are so excited to share this fence installation with you. We installed a fence in Plainfield, which happens to be the home of Cedar Mountain Fence Company. We install a lot of fences in Plainfield throughout the year, but this was our first fence installation of 2017. Being the first job of the year, it is always special to us. Its a sign that people are starting to think about buying fences again after a long and cold winter. It is also a reminder to us that the busy fence season is only a few short months away. Here at Cedar Mountain Fence Company, we have enjoyed a few months off during the winter, but we are ready to make 2017 our best year yet. If you are thinking about getting a fence installed this year and you want it sooner than later, we recommend that you get a fence estimate early, and secure your installation date before the busy season hits, which happens mid year.
Shadow Board Fence
Our customer in Plainfield selected a beautiful western red cedar fence to be installed in their backyard. As you can see in the photos, for this fence project we used a shadow board design. This is a unique fence design that has boards on both sides of the fence, but they are staggered. So if you look at it from an angle, you can kinda see through the fence, but when you look straight on, it appears to be solid fence construction. Its not a privacy fence in the traditional sense, but it does offer a certain level of privacy from your neighbors. If you live in Plainfield, you will want to check with your homeowners association to see if they have any rules or regulations about what type of fence you can install in your backyard.
Dog Eared Rolling Arch Fence
This fence is approximately 4’ feet high and is what we call a Dog Eared Rolling Arch design. That refers to the cut and style of the top of the fence. If you look closely at the individual fence pickets, you will see that the corners are cut off as part of this fence style. That is known in the fence industry as Dog Eared fence pickets. Also you will notice that the fence panel starts off at the post lower, then curves up towards the center of the fence panel. This creates a rolling look to the overall fence design. Based on the size of this backyard, this fence was approximately 170’ feet in total linear footage.
