    I would definitely NOT recommend Ricky Nagel Fencing, not to my family or friends. We had him replace an existing boundary fence recently, he quoted for the length of the fence then built the fence much shorter than quoted, didn’t put in an end post and left the rails exposed (the boundary fence faces the street), he hired a jack hammer that he didn’t quote for nor did he let us know, he just hired it and charged us $100. extra for it, there were 2 parts to our quote, 1 was for sleepers and 2 for the fence/tip fees, we emailed him the price accepted for the fence only (we were sharing the cost with our neighbour) and yet he went ahead and also put in the sleepers charging us for an extra sleeper, once again without communicating with us, yet some of the existing sleepers were not that bad, the other quotes we got from fence Contractors didn’t quote for sleepers, we chose Ricky because he was easy to get along with and Ricky Nagel Fencing’s quote was the 2nd cheapest. He said the boundary fence to the front of the property didn’t have a post because he doesn’t always provide a post, even though the fence he was replacing had a post, and the fence looks unfinished, he said he didn’t construct the fence the whole length because there were lilly pilly tree roots in the way and that was our fault, we should have removed them, (only told us this after the fence was finished) but he had a jack hammer so why didn’t he use it…..the previous fence contractor clearly had no trouble. Our neighbour is in dispute with us over the fence and has threatened to sue us because Ricky Nagel Fencing left a cement mess on his front lawn and left cement splashed over their pool fence. The neighbour did not share the cost of the sleepers or the $100.00 extra added to the invoice after the job was finished so we were slugged with paying it ourselves. Ricky Nagel Fencing offered to reimburse us for the short fall in the length of the fence after we contacted him yet we are still waiting. We are very disappointed in Ricky Nagel Fencing and feel ripped off, this fence contractor just does what he wants with your money. We are not satisfied with the quality of the construction and would suggest to anyone looking for a competent contractor to ask to view previous jobs, take photos of your existing fence, check reviews online and ask around for a reputable tradesman; word of mouth is an excellent advertisement. Most importantly you need a tradesman who listens to the customer and communicates, doesn’t just go ahead and spend your money without consultation. Fences cost a lot of money and you deserve value for your money. We most certainly do not believe we got it from Ricky Nagel’s Fencing.
