DuraCedar - Built to Last


Don't let this happen to you!  Post failure means fence failure, and post replacement in older fences can be expensive and sometimes not worth the effort.  














Midwest is the only company in the Twin Cities that is taking proactive steps to achieve better results. We expect our posts to last 50% longer than standard.  We are the exclusive dealer of the DuraCedar© Posts.  These posts have built-in protection to resist post decay and rotting.   Your new fence will last longer with these posts!
Thanks to a new natural wood preservative and other strategic installation techniques Midwest can provide the best value for all of our cedar customers. It is the smart choice for a great look and better performance. Ask for DuraCedar© today!





As always- Free Estimates and no obligation.

Fence Company Comparisons

Before you hire a contractor, it is important that you find out a few things:
  • Do they have a current State Contractor license?
This is important because contractors must prove to the State of MN that they have enough insurance, and it means they are serious about being in this industry for the long term. You can weed out the non-licensed guys right away. A link to look up a residential contractor is provided here: www.doli.state.mn.us or you may copy and paste the address to your browser. You may be surprised to see how many fence companies are not licensed.

  • Do they use In-House crews or sub-contractors?
Subs tend to have the best interest of themselves in mind; not the homeowner. Subs are paid by the job and not by the hour, so the faster they work, the more money they make. But speed does not necessarily equal quality. Workmanship is everything!

  • Warranty on workmanship?
Anybody can warranty materials for 5, 10, 20 years, but the labor is what costs money. A board replacement or a gate adjustment are minor material costs, but the labor can be $200.00 or more. A one year labor warranty is the same as nothing. It says to the customer that if a board falls off next summer, the new board is free; but the trip charge is $200.00 (does that sound like a good warranty?) Better contractors who build durable projects, will warranty everything for 5 or more years because they know that it will last.
  • Small down payment?
Most consumer advocacy groups (BBB, Angie's List) advise paying 30% or less as a down payment. Be cautious of contractors who want more than that. Remember, this down payment reflects your commitment to the job but the contractor hasn't performed any work yet. You have nothing to show for your commitment.
  • Scope of work?
A detailed, written proposal is critical to helping you make an informed decision.  The details should include the following:
  1. Total Linear Footage
  2. Height of Fence
  3. Style of Fence
  4. Specific Brand, or Grade of Materials
  5. Installation Methods and Process
  6. Removal of Existing Fence and Haul or Recycle
  7. Warranty Information on Labor and Materials
  8. Installation Crews (subs or in-house)
  9. Project Costs
  10. Terms of Payment

You can always hire a nice guy with a "nice price", but do your homework first.  If you follow these steps, you may find that choosing your next contractor is easy and a good way to get the best value.
