I've recommended them before and I just say that they're first class, they're on time, they're nice people, and they do a great job. It's affordable and the pricing is reasonable.

When I have a problem, they come that day. They make a special effort to come quickly.

I found the estimator to be very knowledgeable and very easy to talk with. They came in, they did the work, and I was very pleased. The fence was straight, they matched it to fencing we already had and did a great job, and they also made a gate for me which required some thought and engineering on their part. I can't say enough good things about them.

The person who came out to do the estimate was very easy to talk to and knowledgeable which reassured me that I was working with someone who could do the job right, and I thought it was a fair price.

Comparative Summary

Marin Fencing Inc. has been providing fences and automatic gates for Bay Area homes and businesses since 1976. The firm offers fencing products in a wide range of styles, from aluminum and chain link to PVC and ornamental. “Chain link fences are among the most popular,” says owner Doug Monti. “We carry both silver-galvanized and vinyl-coated models. Our PVC fencing is also well-liked–it’s maintenance-free and comes in more than 30 styles, all of which carry 20-year warranties.”

Marin Fencing also specializes in automatic swinging and sliding driveway gates. “We have a wide variety of styles,” says Mr. Monti. “We also offer telephone entry, digital keypads, video recognition and loop detection systems for opening the gates. All our automatic gates have battery backup options as well.”

The company’s experienced crew members specialize in installing specific types of fencing and have developed in-depth knowledge of particular products. In addition to its C13 fencing license, the company holds a Class B general contractor’s license and can handle construction and remodeling tasks that are incidental to fence installations.

Industry Info

When it comes to maintaining fences and gates, a little goes a long way. Doug Monti, owner of Marin Fencing Inc. in San Rafael, says most fences are virtually maintenance-free after they’re installed. For automatic gate systems, however, he advises to sign a maintenance contract. “The moving parts and various sensors sometimes go wrong, no matter how high quality the installation. You should arrange for regular, professional maintenance to head off problems before the gate stops working.”

Even though fences don’t require a lot of upkeep, there are still preventive measures you can take to ensure they remain in top form for years:

• If you have a wooden fence that’s behind trees and shrubs, trim the vegetation that’s closest to the fence to help it dry quicker when it rains. Inspect the fence boards every year to determine if any are rotten or loose—fix loose boards with nails and a hammer, and immediately replace rotten boards. Wooden fences are susceptible to decomposition, but you can protect them by applying water-resistant sealer every couple of years.
• Regularly washing a vinyl fence with a hose and a large brush will keep it in good condition and make it look fresh. To remove stains, apply a combination of powdered detergent, household cleaner and water to affected areas and scrub.
• Before installing a chain link fence, make sure to select a metal that’s not prone to rusting. Make sure you regularly trim bushes and trees around the fence—water from plants can cause chain link fences to corrode. Use vinegar to remove rust formations.
• Keep electric fences free of vegetation—even a blade of grass can cause a reaction, especially in the early morning when everything is wet. Check once a month during every season except summer, when more leaves fall from plants and trees.
