Read or leave Reviews of Massey Construction Inc. Deck and Fence. We design and install composite decks, wood fences, chain link fences, vinyl fencing, maintenance free rails and ornamental aluminum fences in the Southern Maryland, St. Mary’s, Charles and Calvert County MD areas.
As you can see by the posting of the photos online our fencing project by Mr. Massey looks awesome. Their crew was very professional, organized, and delivered everything I asked for plus more. They never left the job site without cleaning up after each day and the workmanship was superior. We have two small horse pastures and our neighbors have all commented on how great the new vinyl fencing looks. I called several other local fencing companies and they were by far the lowest bidder but, didn't cut corners on the quality of the material they used. All the post are heavy duty and set into concrete. We're enjoying our new fencing and the great improvement it made to our property!
Quality Fence Install After 3 Quotes in La Plata
We decided to get at least 3 quotes for our new fence. 2 out of the 3 quotes were from small companies and the third was from a very large company. I was immediately turned off when the salesman from the large company said something like, "If you sign in the next 24 hours I'll cut your price in half". Even with the 50% price reduction the adjusted price was still more than Massey.
Massey's quote was right in the middle with about a $300.00 difference in price when compared to the cheapest company. The fence was for our backyard - white vinyl 6ft privacy, newer La Plata development, just shy of 330 linear feet.
Why I went with Massey:
I prefer to go with small business whenever possible. Massey is small enough to be nimble, but large enough to get stuff done without major delays or problems. They truly do appreciate your business.
The sales process was great. Scheduling was flexible (they even came out twice to do more than one estimate after we changed our minds...). I also didn't do much research on purchasing a fence before they came out to do the quote. The last fence I bought was wood and over 10 years ago. The salesman took his time to educate me on the different products, work up different pricing scenarios, and gave great input on gate selection.
The salesman also checked in "just enough" while we were making our decision and getting the necessary permits.
Why I would refer others to Massey:
They're easy to do business with, sell for reasonable prices, and the quality of work is excellent. Oh, and once they get started they don't stop - day 2 was done in the rain!
There was a small discrepancy between what was on the work order and what was discussed verbally during the sales process. I called Massey management and we chatted for a few minutes. He was very reasonable and able to make a decision quickly. Everything was resolved the very next day without additional cost to me. Try doing that with the bigger players...
I didn't read the ranting from other posters. Many of them have 1 star responses and most complain about scheduling. Let's be reasonable people - these guys aren't coming out to fix your kitchen sink. A lot of stuff is involved, material has to be purchased and crews have to be organized to get something like this done.
If a place like Massey tells you 3 or 4 weeks you should set your expectations to an install date of 2 - 6 weeks. This is true for any type of major home improvement project that isn't purchased through a large chain then subbed out through one or more intermediaries (which in turn drives up cost significantly...)
Why 2- 6 weeks? Simple - places like Massey really do want to meet or exceed your expectations. However, they don't have multiple crews waiting on standby and a million dollars worth of material sitting in a warehouse just in case the schedule gets backed up. If they did, the price would be much higher. Remember - money and time always has to come from somewhere...
Ornamental Fence installed in Mechanicsville, MD
I have an ornamental fence that was installed by Massey many years ago and that job went great and the fence is still perfect and looks great. I didn't enclose my deck with the fence at that time and now needed it enclosed to keep my dog in the yard. Sonny responded as soon as I called for an estimate and worked with me to get something designed to meet my needs. He came up with a solution and I had a chain link fence and gate installed for a great price! I unfortunately called right before the blizzard so the only delay I had was due to snow and then water on the ground. The fence looks great and my dog is safe which makes me totally happy! Sonny was very responsive and I will call Massey Deck and Fence again if something new comes!
Quick Fence Customer Service In MD
We had our fence installed on our property in Maryland by Mr. Massey from Massey Fence in 2012. We have had several service calls. Our first service call was shortly after installation. The issue was taken care of quickly. Our fence is on a slope and we also deal with issues that follow after high winds. On occasion panels have blown out. Our most recent issue was after the heavy snow storm. Mr. Massey came and repaired the fence and adjusted the gate in a timely manner. He is pleasant to deal with.
On Time, Quality Fence Installation in Lusby, MD
I'm so happy with the quality of my new fence. Exactly what I requested. These men arrived when they said they would and did quality work. I asked them for an added item once they arrived. They not only accepted the additional work but completed it within the original time quoted.
Leonardtown MD Fence and Gate Installation
Massey Deck and Fence installed a fence and gates in backyard. Job went well with no issues.
La Plata MD Wood Privacy Fence Installed by Massey Fence
We had 438 feet of privacy fence installed by Massey Fence. The work was started when promised and completed when promised. Sonny Massey inspected upon the date of completion and there was some additional work to be done and he personally came out on a Sunday to complete the additional 30 feet by himself. The fence looks great and we could not be happier. Sonny Massey was very courteous and professional. We would highly recommend them for fencing and deck.
Lusby MD Vinyl Chain Link Fence Installed by Massey Fence
We were able to negotiate a little on the price and were happy with the final outcome. The installation wasn't clean, meaning that some of the fence, to keep it symmetrical, had to run through parts of our wooded area. The Massey's or their installers had no issues cleaning the brush that needed to be cleaned out to do this job. The workers were punctual, quiet, professional, communicated well, and got the job done on time and it looks great! I read other reviews that mentioned lead-time to get the job done. This was true, we had to wait about 4 weeks or so, but that was ok with us. Going in, I was not in a hurry so I was flexible on the installation date. We had to push it a bit after the first scheduled date due to much rain, but that is expected in outdoor jobs. All of the Massey family that we dealt with were very nice and professional and we would definitely use them again.
Hollywood MD Wood and Composite Deck Installed by Massey Fence
I contacted Massey Deck and Fence Company in May for a quote on a 12x24 deck in both wood and maintenance free material. They were the low bid on a maintenance free deck using Trex Lava Rock Decking with Vinyl railings. I called them back a few days later to sign my contract. They estimated 2-4 weeks to start. After about 3 weeks, they contacted me to advise me of the projected schedule. Unfortunately, I had other work being done and had to delay the deck project because there wasn't enough room for both contractors working in my back yard. But the Massey crew was able to come out and dig the footers and pour concrete to get ready to build. Once the other contractor was done, Massey came out and started framing on a Tuesday and worked straight through the week every day until my deck was completed on Friday evening. Exactly as they promised!! They did great work! Given the unseasonably cool summer we are having, we have really enjoyed eating frequent family dinners on our new deck! We absolutely love our deck. I really like dealing with family businesses and I would definitely use Massey Deck and Fence again!
Lexington Park MD Fence and Deck Installed by Massey Fence
It went good. They were reasonably priced and the fence that they did for us survived several hurricanes so we figured that they have pretty good quality stuff. The deck had gates on it too and vinyl railings. Once they started the job, their punctuality was an 'A' but it took a while before they actually started.
