From David Humber (owner):

 "During the past 24 years, my careers have spanned education, customer service, interior design, and retail-trades. Going back 30 years, I have worked on home construction projects in Virginia, Florida, and Tennessee with friends and non-profit groups. I have always loved working with my hands and being outdoors. When the opportunity presented itself, I began building fences as a profession in order to do something I truly enjoyed. I also wanted to create an opportunity to work with my son while he was still at home. He has become a true builder and problem solver in his own right."

"Building fences brings me deep satisfaction. I add value to the lives of my clients by delivering quality fences that enhance their enjoyment in their homes. A quality fence is an investment in your property. New fence construction is one of the quickest ways to increase the eye appeal of your home as well as your own satisfaction in your home. I build fences and gates that my clients love."

"I build fences one way--the right way. I take time to select the best materials, dig to the proper depth, fasten materials correctly, and clean up each site. I know that details matter and that quality takes time. I love this work."

 "I look forward to building an attractive, strongly built fence for you. Enjoy your home. Build strong fences."
