I can’t say enough good things about Doug Gorton Professional Services, who fixed our fence this week. I wanted to take a minute to publicly endorse him. Doug’s website is at http://wepaintaustin.com, and his direct phone number is 512-799-8384.
Here’s our story:
After a couple of months of putting off some relatively minor fence repair work on one side of my back yard, I was dismayed to discover a few days ago that an entire section of fence was now leaning precariously in another section of the yard. My neighbor informed me that two of the posts (on his side) were broken and in need of replacement.
I found Doug Gorton because he already had 48 “5 star” reviews on Austin’s Citysearch site. We had AusTex Fence come out to see what was needed, and they recommended a full replacement for 2 sides, at a cost of over $2000. They said that the wood was in bad shape and they wouldn’t be able to repair it. Doug Gorton came out the same day, within a couple of hours of my initial phone call, and he said that there was no need to replace it.
Two of his guys were on the job the next morning, and Doug showed up to get them started. They knocked it out in less than three hours, which included replacing two posts (set in concrete), placing the fence back, and replacing about 7 boards.
Cost? A mere $225. In fact, it ended up costing less than 10% of what the other guys wanted to charge us. The work looks great, and the workers themselves were terrific.
I can’t recommend Doug enough. If you’re looking for fence repair/replacement, call him first – you will NOT be disappointed. Since he also does painting, I intend to speak with him in the upcoming months about getting some interior paint work done.
