Your Questions Answered
Does your company use concrete when installing a fence?
Yes, we do. We use concrete in almost all fencing applications. There are the occasional projects (mostly types of farm fencing) that don’t require the use of concrete, but as a general rule, we always use concrete for wood, vinyl, chainlink, and ornamental iron fences.
Do you use company installers or do you use subcontractors?
We use only our own Mike’s Fence Center installers, not subcontractors. We wouldn’t be able to trust anyone else to get it right! Our company installers are professionally trained in the installation of all types of fence. Because they are company employees, every foreman and assistant that works on your property is covered by our bond & insurance.
How long will it take to get my fence installed?
Lead-times to a project start date vary by season, but being the biggest and best has the advantage of faster service for our customers. Once the project gets started, the first step is digging/drilling & setting the posts in concrete. After the concrete has hardened, crews will come back and build the fence. In most cases, the fence is finished within a week to 10 days (including concrete curing time).
Are you fully insured?
Yes, at all times we have a current license, bond and are fully insured and can provide certificates of insurance if required. (CCB # 58356)
How can I pay for my fence?
We have many options for payment. Whatever is easiest for you works fine for us. We take major credit cards, personal checks, and cash.
Do you give free estimates?
Yes, estimates are always free.
Can I purchase materials only?
Of course! We have a huge inventory of fencing products and supplies competitively priced for your convenience. Our retail store and showroom is located at 59 SW Hayes Ave, Bend OR 97702.
What should I do before installing a fence on my property?
There are more steps than most people realize when installing a fence. Checking property lines, checking zoning and code restrictions for city or county, checking with neighbors and/or homeowners associations. There is a lot to consider, but we can help with a lot of it. We are happy to be the first step for your fencing project.
Why should I use a professional fence contractor to install my fencing?
Maybe you shouldn’t. But, if Quality, Consistency, Timeliness, and a 30-year track record of happy customers is important, maybe you should. Mike’s Fence Center crews have the training, experience and equipment needed to install your fencing the right way, the first time. Furthermore, if you should need repairs or adjustments in the future, you can count on us to be here 5, 10, or 20 years from now to answer the phone and help you out.
