Cheryl Taylorson

Cheryl Taylorson

Residential Fence Production Assistant

My name is Cheryl Taylorson and I recently joined Fence & Deck Connection as the Scheduling Manager in the Fence Production division. Once your project reaches the production stage, I make sure any necessary permits are obtained, Miss Utilities is contacted and most importantly reach out to “you”, our customer, to set up the fence installation in the expected timeframe.

I have been in both the Property Management and Commercial Landscaping businesses for over 20 years and customer satisfaction is my top priority.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, along with my dog Izzy. I look forward the football season and love spending time outdoors.

Colleen Sarich

Commercial Railing Production Manager

After eight years in the commercial window treatment industry, I've returned to Fence & Deck Connection as the production manager for the Commercial Railing Division. I graduated from the University of Maryland College Park in 1988. Since then I have worked in the construction industry in various positions from engineering assistant and community outreach coordinator in water and wastewater treatment to inside sales in fence and deck to project management with commercial window treatments. My job at Fence and Deck Connection is to work with the customer to get the commercial projects completed on time and as specified. My goal is to help the Commercial Railing division continue to grow and to expand Fence and Deck Connection's stellar customer service reputation into the commercial industry.

I grew up locally, graduated from Arundel High School, and currently live in Columbia with my husband and teenaged son and daughter. My free time in springtime and summer is spent juggling between my son's baseball games and my daughter's lacrosse games, and my winters are spent at ice rinks all over the East Coast watching my daughter play hockey.

Joel Garvin

Joel Garvin

Residential Service Manager

My name is Joel Garvin. I have been in the fence and deck industry since 1992. I started as a laborer right out of high school and worked my way up to a crew leader. I ran a crew installing jobs for over 10 years so I know the ins and out of installation. I then moved into the position of yard manager and was responsible for ordering material, and making sure the crews had what they needed to complete their jobs. I then moved to service manager where I would meet with customers to resolve installation and warranty issues. I then opened my own business and specialized in small jobs and repairs. For the past two years I have been the residential service manager for Fence and Deck Connection. I meet with customers to resolve warranty claims, storm damage etc. I am also a licensed salesman and specialize in selling small jobs. I enjoy working with our customers to resolve issues, and get small projects completed. I am a proud resident of Harford County and enjoy being with my fam ily, working around my property and fishing.
