The warranty a fence company offers separate from a manufacturer warranty becomes very important in determining what costs, if any, you will be liable for in the case you make a claim against a manufacturer warranty. Some manufacturer warranties cover a contractor’s labor costs to replace the defective materials, and some don’t. If the manufacturer warranty doesn’t cover labor, it is very rare for a fence company to cover labor costs. Yutka Fence stands out and stands alone in this scenario. A Yutka Fence Guarantee™ covers the labor costs to remove defective product and replace it with new product if the manufacturer doesn’t – at no cost to you! Please refer to our Guide to Comparing Fence Warranties to understand the differences in warranties you’ll find in the industry before you purchase a fence.

We are so pleased with our new fence. The workmanship is perfection and the installers were so professional and polite. Not a piece was left for us to clean up. It was a pleasure to do business with Yutka Fence and you will be highly recommended to everyone. Thank you.

Good afternoon Brett, First of all I want to thank you and your company for the install of our new fence that was completed on Monday. My wife and I stopped in at your office about 2 months ago and talked to you about our options and what would be best fit for us. You spent some time with us and we appreciate your time.
