What To Expect During Your InstallationBugra2023-01-24T14:50:16+00:00
What to expect during your installation
AEF has encountered an abundance of anomalies during our installation processes.
We have created this to set the expectation on things that we may encounter and how we will respond while installing your project.
Standard root excavation
Definition: Any root in the post hole that is 2”- 4” in diameter.
How we respond: Our team will be equipped with tools that allow us to cut through roots of these sizes and allow us to dig the proper sized footer. These obstructions cause our team to spend extra time digging the proper sized footers.
Definition: The installation team has hit an unmarked private water line while doing the installation and the pipe needs repair. There could also existing private utilities in the footers of an old fence. During removal these could be compromised and need repair.
How We Respond: Our team can excavate and repair necessary pipes. Based on the size of the pipe will determine the cost of the repair.
Definition: Charge to deliver and use a sump pump to drain the water from the holes to properly dig and set the posts.
How We Respond: Our team will organize a sump pump to be available for use to remove the water from the hole. One team member will operate the sump pump while 1-2 others place the post and pour the concrete.
Definition: Using the sump pump is an effective way to overcome a high-water table but is much more labor intensive and requires more hands to get the task done properly.
How We Respond: We will use the sump pump to remove the water from the hole, after the water is removed, we will place the post and pour the concrete. In extreme situations we may also use heavy duty contractor bags to put the post and concrete inside of. This prevents the concrete from becoming oversaturated.
Definition: Custom post to jog around existing building footers.
How We Respond: When we encounter a footer off a building, slab, or other structure, we use a modified post called a “dog leg” to successful pour a footer without compromising the foundation of the existing structure. This ensures we can minimize gaps (or meet code) and still have a structurally sound post footer.
When we run into abnormal workflows like listed above, we will notify you of our findings and document it with a Field Change Order Sheet (FCO). The foreman or supervisor on your project will present the FCO for you to review and sign.

Our pool fence (and a wood privacy fence) was installed by Matt, James, and Rajaus. This team was professional and took pride in their work installing the fencing as though it was their own. I highly recommend American Eagle Fence!
Great people to work with! Super nice guys all around. Good customer service. Thank you for a great job!
They are on time, professional, and have great communication. We will use them for every fence project here at Rocky Bayou Christian School.
They did great work and used high quality materials. They did well at communicating with me about job scheduling and were careful to clarify scope and layout before they started. They were able to fit me in ahead of schedule. Would recommend using.
Robert, Justin, Nick, Mike, and Billy were very professional and friendly. They got the work done in one day and were able to answer all our questions. We would gladly recommend this business to our family and friends. - The Gainey Fam
They did an excellent job replacing my storm damaged privacy fence. Very professional and kept me informed throughout the process. Cleaned the area after they finished the fence and were polite and efficient.
I normally don't do reviews but the professionalism, open communication and craftmanship were beyond outstanding. Billy and his crew Matt, Justin, Rajus and George were on time every day and kept us informed each step of the way. If you need a fence installed this is the company to hire! It was worth the wait!! Thank you for the beautiful fence.
Excellent from start to finish. Scott was very professional and came out right away and was honest about the job and timeline. Matt and Rajous worked very hard and did an amazing job!!! There were some tough spots to work around and they did it!!! Very polite and also very professional. They both had excellent communication throughout the job. I would for sure use American Fence again.
