Keep tree branches, roots and vines properly trimmed. Otherwise they can put pressure on the fence, eventually breaking it.—Romuald Hardy
“The customer always wants the estimate now and the fence built yesterday,” says Romuald Hardy, owner of Five Star Fence. “I do my best to deliver that!” He installs gates (motorized or manual), block/brick walls, and fences: wood, composite, vinyl, wrought iron, chain link, netting and hillside fences.
Previous clients valued the speed with which Five Star Fence completes a job. Romuald’s crew of four to five workers (compared to two workers that other companies generally send) gets the job done quickly. “We can do in one day what other companies do in three.”
To ensure quality, Romuald uses premium materials for his fences, including custom wrought iron, fashioned in Five Star’s shop. Romuald also emphasizes proper planning: “Common sense is essential!” For example, snake and coyote fences are typically built at the soil level, while Romuald always sinks them into the earth to keep critters out.
Clients appreciate Romuald’s design sense. He believes good design springs from collaboration: “I listen to my clients’ preferences and needs. Only then am I able to translate their ideas into reality.”
Romuald keeps the client informed of the project’s progress and any potential problems in order to avoid unnecessary costs and delays. “I know how frustrating it can be when you come home and the contractor has made changes without consulting you. I stay in touch and give the client options.”
I was dreading having to replace the wood fence that surrounds our property. I had had it redone once before and already it was falling down. Finding a company to come out and do the job sometimes is like pulling teeth, so I was surprisingly pleased by Romuald's prompt response. He came out the next day gave me a bid that was not just less than the competition's quote, but in one case, four thousand dollars less.
The crew got the fence built in two days and it is beautiful. They even fixed a post on my garden fence that wasn't part of the original work order. They were good guys.
The new fence is solid and I have high hopes that it will last a lot longer than the other ones. Five Star Fence did a great job and were out the door—that's the kind of work I like.

Five Star Fence is a great company, from the receptionist to the owner. Their management is very professional, thorough and persistent without being pushy. Their foreman and workers went above and beyond to do the job right. They built exactly what we wanted to our specifications, and they were clearly proud of their work. The foreman took a picture of our gate before going home. They were all really nice—I never once felt like I was dealing with a big-city contractor.

Five Star Fence installed a redwood fence and a ten foot chain link with nylon screen for privacy in our backyard. It was a difficult job due to the terrain of our backyard and the issues of privacy we wanted to address. Romuald resolved all of it. We found the price was fair. The entire company is a pleasure to work with and made the entire process so easy. They are professional, prompt and courteous in every aspect of the work performed from contract to finished project. I cannot recommend them enough.

I hired Five Star Fence in December of '08. The workmanship was simply amazing and I was completely satisfied with the finished product. The job was completed on time, the crew was very professional and they complied with all my requests. I was always able to speak to the owner and/or his assistant when I had a question. They are all very friendly which made this experience that much more enjoyable. I highly recommend them.

Five Star put in a redwood perimeter fence on to my property. They were efficient, reasonably priced, and did a terrific job. It would be nice if every contractor were like them!

Five Star Fence was one of the best experiences I’ve had with a contractor. It was very pleasant doing the design together. They installed an electronic gate and a picket fence. I can’t tell you how much it has changed the house for the better! I got 5 or 6 estimates and Romuald gave me a very fair price. He’s a good guy!

I got a mid-range price from Five Star to take out an old fence and put in a new one. Once we arranged for the work to be done, Romuald brought in a large team. They got the job done quickly and professionally. They cleaned up after themselves so the property looked cleaner after they did their work than when they arrived! I was very happy with the work and the service.

Five Star Fence is great! Besides the competitive price, and the nice people who worked on the job, the best thing was that they could both remove my old brick wall AND put in the new one! The work was done a half day sooner than they had said.

I had three companies come out to bid for my fence. Five Star bid $2000 less than one of them! My ornamental iron fence was done in a day! It’s top quality – commercial grade steel.

In four hours, Five Star knocked out a security fence for the employees on the second floor of my business. A team of guys showed up, got it done and cleaned up. I didn’t have to worry about debris or anything for my employees. And you can’t beat their price.
