Does Dakota Fence stand behind their work and fence products?

One big difference at Dakota Fence is we not only have the best industry fence products available, but we stand behind our fence. We've been in business since 1972. Our complete sales team, all the way through the installation side, and our professional installers really make the difference in why one would want to go and choose Dakota Fence over other companies.

We've been in business, we know how to do it correct, and we take no shortcuts.

Why does Dakota Fence use a steel post instead of the traditional concrete post on their fence products?

Most of the wood fence always has used the wood post, or the concrete footing. In the recent years, we've went out and we actually have now supplied a steel post.

The reasons you want to go with a steel post master post is, the life expectancy is years and years of maintenance for use.

Unfortunately, the wood posts does rot eventually over time. With the high winds and the rotting, you don't get any of that with a post master.

Moveing forward, the steel post is by far the best choice for longevity. With the investment you're putting in your yard, you don't want any maintenance.

Can Dakota Fence modify and existing fence?

Dakota Fence can come in and modify, or change, or add on to any existing fence of any style. We'd be more than happy to take a look at your needs. Please give us a call.

Can you walk me through the Dakota Fence, fence installation project?

Once you've called Dakota Fence, we'd be more than happy to set up an estimate. Once the sales team arrives in your yard, takes a look at your fence project, and fits the fence of choice that meets your needs at your home. We take the project in house at that point. It's set up with our coordinator, a project folder's put together, and then they start the process of how to install your fence.

Again, this whole process is a seamless process. The coordinator will call all utilities, so you the homeowner, you'll see prior to our fence installation, they will be giving you a date. Several days before that, you'll see some orange flags and marks on your ground, on the sod, or on the dirt. That's signifying all the utilities. Once that's in place, then our coordinator will talk to you a day in front of the crews arriving. They'll let you know, "Our foreman would meet you, take a once around the yard so we get all the gates and everything just where you want them." Any little things such as flower beds, or any other particulars that you have that we need to pay attention, we will.

Once the crew is there, you're free to go about your business, go to work, whatever you need to do. Our professional team, been with us many, many years, they'll dig and set the job. Once the job is set and in the ground, we let it sit for two to three days, depending on weather conditions. Then at that point we have our finishing crew come in and finish it. Once our finishing crew is there and finishes it, it typically takes three to five workdays usually to do most yards. You really don't have to be on site, other than just give us a once around so we get everything laid out upfront. Then, we'll build the fence of your dreams.
