Good Fences Make Happy Neighbors

After thinking of many selections for replacing our old redwood fence, we ultimately came to a final decision. 

Our son, Keola had occur with us to Hawaii and replaced significantly of the fencing about 22 decades back. It was a big occupation, but owning Keola’s assist made it much easier. The fencing on the facet of the home was even older and belonged to our neighbor. The slats have been now falling off (I tied them with some rope.) and carpenter bees experienced made properties in the posts. The neighbors were much more than happy when we explained to them we would like to swap it. 

Soon after having several offers, we produced our determination. His price was about in the middle of the some others, but Chris just sounded so small essential, considerate and handy. The pandemic went ridiculous suitable immediately after we bought his estimate. He then was not equipped to get the vinyl fencing shade that we needed (until he got it from China which we favored avoiding).

Two years went by and we just about gave up hope. But then, all of a sudden… very last week Chris identified as. He explained they were being placing up fencing in a new housing advancement, but was waiting for concrete to dry so he could get our fencing set up now. (Happily, our vinyl fencing experienced arrived eventually.) “When can we schedule it?” I requested.

“Tomorrow?” he answered.

“Tomorrow?!?” I requested. “How very long will it get?”

“About a week,” he reported. 

“We know charges have absent up,” I reported. “Can you convey to me how much it will cost now?”

“We’ll hold it as is,” said Chris.


We experienced to rearrange our schedule but we grabbed it. I was not positive if he’d remembered telling us that he could take care of the hideous breakage at the close of our rock wall. 

No person else could/would do it. He remembered and said they’d do it at no added value. 

Then there was this dirt trench amongst our assets and the neighbors’  hollow tile wall (on the other facet) that retains escalating weeds and little trees.

It is really a superior detail Artwork is slender since he employed to squeeze in amongst to pull out the overgrown weeds and bushes.

When the workers took down our outdated fence, Artwork cleaned it out and it took us a whole afternoon to pull out the minor trees and their tenacious roots.

We resolved to get cement from Household Depot and fill it. However, when Art calculated how much we would have to have, we realized what a overwhelming project that would be. Those people cement baggage are 30 kilos. Or was it 80? In all probability 100. We might have to have 3 bags of the stuff.

When we mentioned it to Chris, he mentioned they could just fill it with cement at the very same time they’re installing the fence. 

“Could you insert that to our monthly bill? I requested. 

“That is Ok,” he reported. 

Very seriously? 😄 But wow! They did an amazing position of filling that trench. 

The Ahead of photographs are on the still left. 

We are quite delighted. I advised Chris I could set his corporation on my website so folks would know what a fantastic position he and his employees do, but he chuckled and reported he’d rather I not do that simply because he has so much enterprise correct now that he just are unable to acknowledge anymore. 

Wow! I’m so glad we determined to retain the services of him two years back. It was a long wait but worth it.

And indeed, the neighbors are all satisfied.
