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.

Nick and Matt did a great job today installing an extension on our pre-existing fence.
It provides exactly what we need and they got it done in two hours.
UPDATED! We recently had American Eagle Fence install our gate. The crew was Smitty, Barrow and Shayne. They did a fantastic job, showed up on time, professional and left the area clean. The gate is beautiful and the guys should be commended! Matt and Eli came to install the electronics on our gate and what awesome young men! Their work ethic is wonderful! They did a wonderful job and a wonderful job explaining all of the functions and operations of the gate. Each time we went out to take water or check the mail or something, they were always working - I don’t think they ever took a break. Very courteous and professional. Their supervisor Matt was amazing to explain everything and keep us updated on every step. If you have any doubt about using American Eagle, don’t! You will not be disappointed! Thank you all!
American Eagle Fence is always a pleasure to work with for every project we present them with. Dakota Gruzdas is especially knowledgeable and professional with providing quotes for a multitude of different jobs.

My experience with American Eagle Fencing was great! Dakota did a great job in walking through the project with me. They were done in a timely manner. The fence looks just like I wanted it to. Great quality work as well. It is holding up nicely even after a year of installation. I highly recommend them for any project you need with fencing.
Dakota and his assistant came to give me a quote. They were on time, professional and pleasant. Ty
I've worked with Jim in the past and he's always been very attentive to the issues I've had and helped me out considerably. It's nice to know that there are still companies that actually care about the quality of they're work and follow through on jobs. Thanks and look forward to doing business in the future.
Kameron barrow and markler Shane came on time and did a great job. Highly recommend
Colby, Robert and John did a great job installing our fence. They cleaned it off as they were getting done so it looks real nice. They had to do some “redneck re-engineering” when they encountered sprinkler pipes where the gatepost needed to be. That saved a lot of time and trouble. They knew what to do! Thanks for a job well done!
Great product, 6’ wood privacy fence with 2 12’ gates and 2 4’ gates. Powder coated door frames look great. Thanks to the team of Brendan and Tony, who worked great to get the job done professionally, before expected. Shane’s final inspection insured the installation was completed above standard. Call today if you are looking for a properly installed fence that will last.
