Installation Scheduling Policy – Modern Fence Company, Inc
NOTE: this applies only to larger installations; smaller installs typically move sooner.
03/09/18: We have cautiously resumed installation of larger outdoor installations and
will continue as weather conditions allow.
We are now accepting new work for the 2018 season. As of today,
our current 2018 workload puts us at +/- 3 weeks out to start. This
lead time is likely to increase rapidly with fair weather.
If you're considering a Modern Fence Company installation for
completion early this season, RIGHT NOW is the time to act.
Book your estimate today; you can make arrangements here:

Perhaps the most relevant message we can convey to a potential client is,
please, do not wait until the last minute to proceed with your planned
As a well established fence company, our schedule does become
crowded. During high season, adhering to our standard operating
procedure (outlined below), a full installation can take several weeks,
even months, from estimate to completion. PLEASE PLAN AHEAD -
anticipate normal, course of business delays that are beyond control.
Don't set yourself up for regrets; settling for "second best" to shave a
week or two off an install date can be a costly mistake that you'll be forced
to live with.
MOST RECENT UPDATE - 3/16/18
KINDLY REVIEW THE FOLLOWING:
To better understand how your installation will be scheduled:
Your fence installation starts with your contract authorization, signature and deposit.
Once received, the following obligations, as applicable, must be met, in this order,
before your installation will be placed into our active schedule:
1.) Any required Building Permit must be paid and issued. (Lead time for Permit issue
varies by location, please consult your local building department);
2.) If necessary and only after Permit issue: Orders for “special-order” material will be
placed; all “special-order” material must then be received, delivered to our yard.
(Lead time for “special-order” material varies, please consult your estimator).
Once these terms are met, your installation will move to our active schedule. It will
then be expedited in the order that it was received into this active schedule. KNOW
THAT NO ONE WILL BE PLACED IN FRONT OF YOU; LIKEWISE, WE WILL NOT MAKE
ANOTHER CLIENT WAIT IN ORDER TO "BUMP" YOU UP IN OUR SYSTEM - PLEASE DO
NOT ASK. We have found this to be the fairest, most equitable model of operation,
most clients agree, we cannot and will not deviate from this.
Once your full installation reaches our active schedule,
Our current lead time is approx. 3 - 4 weeks.
WARNING! Find a professional that says they will install sooner? Get it in writing!
Please keep in mind that all outdoor installations are weather dependent. Each full or partial day of
inclement weather will push our entire schedule back an equal amount. We appreciate your understanding.
