Bad experience with this company. I hired Budget Fence Co. in 2012 to install a 4ft. vinyl fence in my backyard. The crew that installed it was terrible. It's as if they had never installed a vinyl fence before. The 3 core drilled posts

The owner Matt McMillen does not keep his commitments, refuses to refund money for incomplete or wrong work and is extremely rude. This business is rated F on the BBB and Angie's List.

Not a single problem with this company. We've had our fence from AF for over ten years and had a good experience along with the limited lifetime warranty on the product. Made a couple of calls over that ten year period and have NO problems

http://cpdocket.cp.cuyahogacounty.us/p_CV_All.aspx This is part 1 of my review will post later.First off I urge everyone to type in Affordable fence into cuyahoga county Common Pleas Court docket Ive tried to link it for you but easy enough to find Then on main menu click on Civil type in Affor fence and check the alias box. You will see 2 cases first judgement is for 29,000 against them The second one is 817,000 dollars Both appear to be advertising companies Make sure you read through the whole docket Part 2 coming soon Part 2-They are deliberate scammers They take deposits and will not give them back Took a grand from me and will not refund the money, I ask everyone who reads this to contact channel 19 - Scott Taylor as I did today,The fence company I have hired since then has video of Affordable- budget stealing their work signs and want to give it to the media as well, As for the good reviews, read them and take a look at the word Ed in each one. Each review has the word Ed written in a lower case e-what does that tell you? Written by the same person cause Im sure somebody would have used a capital E in the word Ed. Not too smart either. And we all know what E_D stands for- When I asked for my deposit back I was called a fricking beotch- not in those terms Lets all not be victims anymore Lets stand up and fight back against this horrible company before they harm someone else. It is my understanding that the owner has been in a psych ward solets get him back in his straight jacket where he belongs instead of preying on the elderly

Terrible customer service, rude, disrespectful and unreliable! Reported them to the BBB and they didn't even care. Even had the nerve to lie to the BBB. Unbelievable! The way they are going I don't expect them to be in business long! Stay away to avoid the headaches!

I cannot adequately describe in 5,000 characters how horrible my experience was with Budget Fence from beginning to end. Between the deplorable customer service, the six different dates I was given for my install that were cancelled, and the independent contractors sent to my house that had the wrong contract and building plans I am not quite sure where to start. If I had to pick the absolute worst part about dealing with budget fence (and there are many to choose from) was how unprofessional, nasty and disrespectful the owner of the company was to me. A close second is the complete lack of communication between the home office and the independent contractors that are hired out to do the jobs. I would receive a phone call from the main office letting me know a time frame of when the installers would be over only to find out from the installers that they were either never planning on coming to my house that day or they had already been there and left. After having to reschedule my child care and work schedule to accommodate their ever changing installation dates given they were unapologetic, unsympathetic and extremely rude. To top it all off they never pulled the permit with the city. Please don??t make the same mistake I made by hiring this company. They already have an ??F? rating on the BBB website. I am embarrassed that I did not research this company ahead of time. If I had, I would have found plenty of reviews and complaints just like this.

Reading through all the 5 star reviews looks like they were all written by the same person, aka Ed. Yeah, Ed was nice, but gave us false information and never checked up on us like he supposedly did w/ another "reviewer".

We ended up using Affordable Fence last year and had a terrible experience with the owner. We live in Westlake and when we realized the posts were not deep enough, according to city regulations, we called him. He said they have a "deal" with the city and it doesn't really have to be that deep, then sent someone out right away to cut down the poles so it's not obvious that they weren't deep enough. They never had the inspection w/ the city on the poles, as required by Westlake regulation, and when we talked to the city they said they didn't have a "deal" with Affordable Fence at all. There was another section of our yard that dips down, we suggested they use longer boards so there wouldn't be a foot gap between the grass and the boards. Unfortunately we said that to the owner who charged us 4x the normal board price for those boards. He also said we would have the coupon discount but did not give it to us, was shady all around. We were told he spends an insane amount on marketing (no word of mouth sales there), had a nervous breakdown the previous year but had always been a jerk. I can see it, that guy seemed unstable. He threatened to not finish our fence because we called the city to ask questions,

The contractor was okay, one day only one guy was out here putting up boards and his section is completely uneven, looks terrible, but we wanted to get them out of here so didn't complain. They also tried to put in the wrong size gate and didn't check w/ us on gate location, really needed to stay on them to make sure they did a good job. At each of the posts they left a big, dirty mound of cement. From what I've heard on proper fence building all cement is supposed to be below the surface or the post will work its way up. Hope that doesn't happen with our fence because Affordable Fence Company changed their name to Budget Fence Company to avoid having to honor their warranty.

Awful Company - Avoid.

Worst service I have ever experienced. Needed warranty repair work done?repeatedly for the same issue, never completed to satisfaction.
The owner Matt ? rude and unwilling to discuss alternatives for solution?not open minded. Years later and after 5 attempts to repair, we are still having same issue. Ever wonder why Matt advertises so much?
I agree with Jay C?.. Before signing contract?.ask questions regarding the warranty or workmanship. Also, best to reference the BBB site. I believe ??not so affordable? fence is no longer a member. Think there might be a reason?

had an appointment with Ed to get an estimate on a vinyl fence. I let him into our house and he didn't acknowledge me or shake my hand. I had to tell him who I was. He boasted about how he was doing a million dollar fencing job etc... he went out to measure our yard, asked what kind of fence we wanted and from then on kept saying how expensive it was going to cost us. He started drawing the yard on his paper and reiterated how much money its going to cost. We ended up having to kick him out of our house. Last time I checked we weren't asking him to pay for this fence, and it was kind of like a slap in the face meaning he thought that we probably didn't have the money to pay for the fence. we called the owner over a month ago to complain and he has not returned our call! Bottom line: don't judge a book by it's cover!!!

Having gone through the phone book and the BBB website on companies, we decided to go with Affordable Fence. We were given a fair and accurate estimate and they did the work in the time promised. They left the work site clean and undamaged as well. I don't see anything that sets them above anyone else, but they are a good company.

We had asked for estimates from many fence companies and finally settled on Affordable Fence. I can't say I'd recommend them though as we had some difficulty with them while doing the work. Our fence has been installed probably 2 years and seems fine.
