  My good neighbor fence blue down in the storm . The neighbor brought Patrick over to bid on fixing the fence. He and his crew were working across the street. I mistakenly thought this was the same guy that had done his previous fence repair. We settled on $1700 and he would "start" the following Thursday. I gave my email address to my neighbor and he would forward to me the written statement. A week of rains ensued and Innever got the email (spam folder) and neighbor never came to door for direct contact. That Thursday it is raining hard and did not here from nor expect anything from Patrick, it was really not even on my mind at this point. Friday morning as I am heading home, I get a call from my Fiancé that a horrible disgusting fence is in our yard. When I got home, I couldn't not only believe a fence was put up in one day, in a torrential downpour, without my permission, but it was horrible! I contacted my neighbor, who approved the fence through a window showing about 5 feet of it. [continued below]....

..... I also showed him the empty water bottles and woodcut offs littering my yard. Apparently since I had the bigger yard, they deciding to stage on and destroy my lawn! He then saw the entire fence and was likewise appalled. It starts off at 6" and ends up at less than 5" ( Patrict letter blamed ny neighbor saying he requested a level fence) I told him I will not pay my share until this fence is completed properly. Oops, guess what my neighbor paid my share! Discounted to $1500 total I contacted Patrict with the number my neighbor gave me and he couldn't understand why I was dissatisfied, but he would come the next day and fix it. Never showed. I called the next day, he is driving back from Oregon, two days no contact! I text him requests, to document conversations, his replies... "ok" after two weeks we settle on a date. Guess what, he calls and says he be over in the afternoon instead of morning and wants to know why I want to be home for the rework, HaHa. Later he calls and says Perko is out of grade 2 fencing, no wonder the boards looked, not so good! At $1.99 a board he spent about $400 tops for supplies, pressure treated posts and cross boards. Oh and it was nailed up with.. get this, ringed finish nails! A light punch with my fist was all it took to take advantage board off. Anyway I offer to not only pay the difference to upgrade the 100 boards he was going to bring, I offered to split it with him! Yep, nice guy here but I wanted this done. No answer to that text. I go to Perko lumber and buy 50 boards and start work on it myself. I text him that if would would just buy the other 50 (he doesn't spend $200 but $140) and drop them off I would finish the fence myself. I had completed 7 out of 9 sections!

As of this writing, he has read the texts (read receipt is on, iPhone) he has not replied in 24 hours + Bottom line, my fence redo looks terrific! The way way it should have been! I am out $140 and probably another $140 to finish, plus $50 in wood screws! Absolutely do not use this guy! Yes the license number is fake! The estimate I finally found, does not list an address other that Ione. He now calls his business, "All In One Fencing and More" I so wish my neighbor didn't pay him in full or even let him begin without me here. I really wish there was a way to post pictures on here to show you all what they did! A 12 yr old could have done a better job!
