On 8/23/2023 William M. had this to say:
I solicited bids from multiple contractors that returned prices all over the field. The biggest causes of variation were the quality of the material offered and the proposed method of construction. All wood regardless of use comes in various grades. Travis' mill of choice supplies what is called a "No. 1 picket" which is not void of knots, but for the most part they are smaller tight knots. Many contractors offer a "No. 2 and Better" which allows for more and larger knots, more through-cracking, warping, some soft rot, and other types of defects. I recommend you search online for images of the grading. You are going to pay more for the quality, but if you want fewer defects you are going to have to be willing to pay the premium. Travis also uses a metal post. This creates an impressive final look as the 2x4 rails are in line with the posts rather than screwed to the face of the traditional 4x4 which results in a bulky unrefined appearance. The metal post will most likely still be sound enough to replace the wood in the future as the post comes with an impressive warranty. It is even attractive from the "bad-side" which is a plus given most zoning requires the post and rails to be visible on the Owner's side. I offer a few words of caution when searching for a fencing contractor... 1) Most contractors use 4x4s, but many simply pack dirt and/or crushed rock in the hole or pour in dry concrete mix and wait for Mother Nature to add enough moisture; they do this because wet-setting requires time for the concrete to cure whereas putting them in dry allows them to blast through the project. These will move all over in the wind and with frost-heave. There isn't necessarily anything wrong with a wet-set wood post but it will not give you the finished appearance of the metal post. 2) The metal post is not unique to Bos Fencing, but do not be fooled into the promise of a long-lasting installation by a contractor simply because they use them. Some drive them in the ground 2-3ft instead of wet-setting them in concrete as Bos Fencing does. Think about it...a metal post driven in the ground 2-3ft with a 6ft "sail" racking in the wind is not going to be as stable as a metal post set in 100-150 pounds of concrete at the bottom of a 3ft hole. It's going to be a mess in a few years under harsh environmental conditions. I cannot yet speak to the longevity of the construction, but I can say the final appearance is of a high quality. Following the demolition of 385ft of deteriorated privacy fence his crew made the yard look like they were never here. Travis listened to my concerns and followed up when he said he would; that alone is better service than I received while soliciting bids from multiple contractors. I would recommend you entertain hiring Bos Fencing for your project. And, should you be happy as well, I recommend you drop a review for him as selecting a contractor for any service is a tough decision when you are often spending thousands of dollars.
