WHO WE ARE

OUR STORY

At 30 years old with our first baby on the way, Brett and I took the final step in making Yutka Fence our future.

The company wasn’t handed down to us, nor would we have wanted it to be. In 2009 we bought it from Brett’s parents, Paul and Trudy, which meant we were financially invested. We already knew our hearts and minds and energy were invested, so the “transaction” of buying the company was the last piece. Our intentions were clear then, and they’re even clearer now. We are preserving Paul Yutka’s legacy while also working hard to leave our own positive imprint on another generation of communities and families we serve.  

We will constantly raise the bar for the type of experience we create for our customers and offer product guarantees that are better than any others available in the fence industry. Our company culture focuses on collaboration and continuous learning to support each team member in their personal and professional journey of growth. We aim to do our best each day with our individual talents and create relationships with customers that are rooted in honesty by doing the right thing at all times.

At the core of everything is a desire to dream big…

Brett and I met and became friends in high school, but we weren’t high school sweethearts. We attended different colleges but kept in touch. Looking back on it, we always saw something unique in each other that kept us connected. Little did we know, it would eventually lead to us dating at 22 and getting married at 26. I often wish I had more than one lifetime to live with Brett. Since one lifetime doesn’t seem like enough, the way I choose to spend my months and years with him matters deeply. The same is true for Brett. Being business owners and a husband and wife team who work together closely is an uncommon thing, and we are fortunate it works for us. It’s a gift. Setting intentions for our life and our business is energizing, and we discuss it often. At the core of everything is a desire to dream big and create a life for ourselves and our children that is rich with experiences and centered around being good people. 

Our three children are growing up in the business, just like Brett and his brother did. While we have no expectations of them taking over the company, we believe the lessons they learn from watching their mommy and daddy run a business will influence their thinking and give them courage to be bold as they set goals and pursue their own dreams and passions. Honesty in life and in business is huge to us. The importance of it can’t be understated. Aside from that one rule of honesty, we like to remind ourselves, our team, and our children that most other “rules” can be questioned. Some of the most amazing adventures Brett and I have had in our marriage are when we challenge rules and norms and choose to do things differently. Pushing past the norm and forging our own unique path is exciting and fulfilling in our business and in our personal lives. We’re constantly on a journey of discovering and becoming more of who we want to be as people and as a company.

Honesty in life and in business is huge to us. The importance of it can’t be understated.

I love to sing often and loudly.  I was not blessed with singing as a talent.

I can eat an entire cob of corn nonstop without missing a piece – typewriter method.

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.
