Amco Fencing is doing our fence as I type this. I'll let you know how things go. So far, they have been great to deal with.

Hi there. Do you mind if I ask how much Amco charges (per foot) to build the fence? Also; would you have contact information for them?

Thanks.

They were also the cheapest quote and negotiated on price.

Amco did mine also - very pleased. 5' Privacy + 1' Lattice, Pressure treated. It was about $28.00 per foot. Not sure how much the Cedar is. One thing is everything is nailed not screwed. May or may not be a problem in the future.

Nice fence indeed. I think am going to be using these guys instead if they are reasonable for a deck and new gate. They are also a lot closer to us than total fence, who's quote seem kind of high

Just as an FYI Yard Guard did our PVC fence last week and charged us 44 bucks per Linear foot. They've done a pretty good job in my opinion and I do not have any complaints.

Just bumping up this thread to see if anyone else got their fencing from Amco? My neighbour is very eager to get the fence up and has already contacted a few companies and has visited various properties with PVC fencing. He seems to like their fences.

We've hired them to do some of the homes in my row. Installation is at the end of the month. They provided a list of references, I can PM you if you like. There were a couple in your neighbourhood. I believe those were PVC and/or PVC+iron. I drove by all the Orleans locations and liked what I saw in all cases.

Thanks Jenny,

Amco gave us a list of references as well and I noticed the ones listed in my neighbourhood. My neighbour is arranging all this and I trust his instincts so i won't bother checking the others on the list.

Amco is very fast as well. I sent them an email to make a change last night and he emailed me back with the changes and updated pricing before midnight.
