So how did your fence do?

A) If your fence matches with the "In Good Shape", you probably just have a few cosmetic things to deal with.  A bit of sandpaper and a fresh coat of stain or paint, and you'll be fine.
B) If your fence matches with the "Needs Repair",  you need to decide whether you want to do the repairs yourself or call 100 % Fence. If you do call 100 % Fence, you can consult with us to decide whether the fence is worth repairing, or if you're better off building a new fence.
C) If your fence matches the "Time To Replace", your fence is not just an eyesore- it's unsafe.  In order to protect your household and even passerby on the street, whether you do it yourself or hire a professional, 100% Fence, it needs to be replaced.
