WATCH THE ABC NEWS CLIP ABOUT TRIANGLE FENCE COMPANY
TRIANGLE FENCE COMPANY (operates under MANY different websites) was caught KEEPING nearly $8,500 from a homeowner. Diane Wilson, ABC News 11 troubleshooter, confronts the owner.
Do you really want to hire a fencing company who kept $8,500 and watch how he treats Diane Wilson! He finally RETURNS a bit more than 1/2 of the money after more than a FULL YEAR of keeping it, most people are not so lucky.
WRAL reports about several construction companies, one owed $220,000 to creditors and stole one family's $20,000 deposit check.
The company then filed bankruptcy.
In a THIRD WRAL story, they received eight complaints about a company owned by Andy Debnam who stole $15,000. He was arrested and put behind bars on fraud charges, but the homeowner's know they will never see their money. Unfortunately Robert Sykes who owned 3 businesses before getting a job with Brickman Landscaping Company, was able to rip off customers and businesses for nearly $100,000 and never face any criminal charges regarding the debt. Rob Sykes ended up filing bankruptcy and his customers and suppliers were never able to collect their money.
In a FOURTH WRAL story, Raleigh fence company ended up taking more than $11,000 from customers. He then went out of business and gave/sold his website to Harrison Fence Company.
In a FIFTH WRAL story, a contractor stole $100,000 in deposits from customers.
All of this proving that it is extremely hard to find reputable companies in the area.
Whether it is two or twenty days, any contractor who gets a check ahead of time, USUALLY has some type of cash flow PROBLEM. They are getting an advance from you weeks in advance in order to pay other debts. You hear about this on the news all of the time. A customer get ripped off and cannot finish their project because the contractor they hired ran off with their money or they delayed starting your project for days or even weeks after your start date, and GUESS WHAT?? You can't hire someone else because you already gave them A THOUSAND DOLLARS or MORE ahead of time right? Some companies have NO ETHICS or MORALS. Our company is NOT one of them.
- Does the Raleigh fence company you are hiring have a proven positive trackable history?
Make sure the contractor you hire has been around for at least several years. A proven track record is crucial to your own piece of mind. Is their "website" just a SINGLE page online with a phone number and maybe a few sentences and a couple photos? Our
educational section provides you with virtually everything you need to know. We also had such success in Raleigh that we expanded our territory to Burlington, Mebane, Charlotte, and Greensboro in the last three years. We have references throughout the state of North Carolina, and we are celebrating nearly TEN YEARS of success.
- Does their company use sub-contractors?
Fence companies like "Home Depot" don't actually have employees that build your privacy structure. Smaller businesses who “sub” out their jobs can often have serious problems getting your project completed, because the sub-contractor is his own company and has other companies giving him work, he can sometimes fall way behind schedule and because you hired a business that took your money to hire another person or business to build your fence, it makes getting your yard enclosed take even longer sometimes.
- Do they give you anything in writing?
How much is in writing? Just the price? Do NOT set yourself up for problems. A written contract is the best way to protect both you, the homeowner, and the installer from problems. Installers that do not give you any paperwork are the one's that usually end up running off with some or all of your money and you have little or no recourse to enforce an agreement to which you have no proof that was agreed upon. Is their company a legitimate business entity, then what recourse do you actually have against this company that does NOT actually exist?
Even if a company gives you a
one year workmanship warranty you won't likely have problems UNTIL MANY YEARS LATER when the wrong nails they used rust out and the pickets and rails FALL OFF! Will your handyman or company that doesn't officially exist COME FIX IT???
We provide A WRITTEN LIFETIME WORKMANSHIP WARRANTY meaning you NEVER have to worry about making repairs because of bad construction techniques or bad business practices.
- Does the business specialize in fencing?
Are they a handyman or “jack of all trades”. Most deck builders are not the best fence builders. General carpentry is comletely different from building fences. Anyone can repair a fence, not everyone can build one from scratch. We have seen quite a few fences done by carpenters that had to be redone by our company.
A handyman or “home improvement specialist”
that does remodeling, kitchens, and bathrooms, and does not specialize in wood fences, usually does not possess the most effective knowledge, tools, OR skills needed to do your job correctly.
This company has more than 10 years of construction experience building wood fences across North Carolina. We are the #1 company in North Carolina because we give you a written LIFETIME WARRANTY on workmanship on all fences and GUARANTEE our prices. Our business style has been replicated in Green Bay, Milwaukee, Wisconsin market, as well as the Dallas, Fort Worth, Texas market. We have plenty of experience enclosing yards and repairing fences.
