Testimonials Steve Nehus

2019 |  2018 |  2017 |  2016

We entertained three estimates for fencing our property and Steven Nehus from Fence and Deck Connection met our guidelines. They delivered beyond our expectations, stuck to an aggressive schedule and finished the job in three days. Minor and the crew showed up early and worked all day. We couldn't be happier. Fence and Deck submitted a bid, stuck to it, met the deadline without issues. The other Steve (Ghiardi), project manager came by to get the lay of the land, was here on day one and followed up to assure we were happy.

Everyone did a great job from the Crew, sales person, and project manager and so on. I was pleased with the time it took to get it done the good housekeeping after the job was done and the consideration of protecting the Sod. I was pleased to see a quality control guy stop by to look at it. And I already have recommended the Fence and Deck Connection on the community face book page so all the neighbors know.

It was a pleasure working with you and everyone on your team. Your company’s and your team’s customer service is exceptional and rare. Everyone, including your office staff, was genuinely concerned about the quality of the work, was very responsive, set reasonable expectations and then performed beyond my expectation.

Please thank everyone on your team for me.

We are very happy with our new deck and fence. Everything looks great! The whole experience with Fence and Deck connection went great from our initial contact with you and the production managers (Steve G and TJ). I appreciated being informed along the way with updates and my questions we always answered promptly. The crews worked hard with a great attention to detail. They worked constantly from the time they arrived until they were done for the day.

Thanks again for a wonderful experience and we will highly recommend your company to others.

First, my wife and I love the fence. We also were thrilled with the attention we received from the entire company from day one. Starting with you Steve: you were very thorough, not pushy, confident, initiated the meeting, showed up on time - completely professional. Same was true of Steve Ghiardi. He initiated the meeting, showed up on time and was very professional. The 5-member team that put up the fence were truly, "the dream team". I watched them off and on during the day and was impressed with the fluidity of how they constructed the fence. Each one of them worked really hard and efficiently. The proof is in the pudding - the fence looks stunning. Also, a shout out to the gentleman who came out yesterday (after Steve) to pick up the remaining wood. He put up two boards over the gap between the front gate and the side of the house - excellent!. And yes, Fence & Deck Connection exceeded our expectations. We will definitely recommend your company to anyone looking for a fence or deck.

Thanks so much -
Best to all -

Asked three companies to bid on big residential job. These Fence and Deck Connection folks slightly underbid the low bid. Exceeded our expectations in many dimensions: carefully developed estimate, excellent pre-installation prep and permit processing, timely and proficient installation, thoughtful follow-up by foreman/manager and salesman. I’m a happy customer. Highly recommend.

Thank you for your presentation of the proposal you gave me. It was straight forward and understandable. You met my needs and I appreciated that. Your Production Manager Carl, worked very well with his crew and they in turn worked with respect and in perfect harmony with each other. They did my deck in one day and even followed up the next day with and last minute requests for complete satisfaction from me. I recommended your company to the HOA of Sheltered Harbour and even invited the Village neighbors to come and inspect your job. I provided your company info along with your contact info. I am sure you will be contacted and receive requests for quotes soon.

Fence and Deck Connection, far exceeded our expectations. Not only in price, but timeline as well. From our first phone call to the final follow up call, we knew we were in good hands. When Steve Nehus arrived I thought I knew what we wanted in a porch. Steve immediately made some suggestions that not only change the look of the porch from, nice to wow and the price didn’t increase! We were given a bid on the spot! (Which was better than we had hoped) Steve was easy to talk to and easy to work with. Any questions I had from roof color to work schedule to questions about parking in our driveway were quickly and professionally answered by both Carl Schmidt and TJ Farley. TJ sent beautiful 3D drawings of what the porch would look like. The crew were such hard workers! Arriving early and staying late! Always polite and cleaning up at the end of the day. And when we threw a curve by asking for a gate on the porch, the one gentleman hand built it on site!!! We are very pleased with the quality and the price of our new porch. We have and will continue to recommend Fence and Deck Connection to family and friends.

The crew arrived on time and worked diligently to quickly complete the project. Steve, my salesman, called to confirm my appointment, arrived on time, was easy to work with, and offered great suggestions for my deck replacement. I was most impressed with the production aspect of the project. The materials and the roll off dumpster all arrived when the should. The dumpster was here less than 24 hours. Everything ran like a well oiled machine; better than I could have imagined.

Scott from Baltimore, MD

Steve Nehus was such a pleasure to work with! The timeline for the project had a quick turn around time, he was very responsive to all email inquiries, and I am beyond satisfied with the finished product. Now my dog has a fenced-in yard to run around in and enjoy. I would definitely recommend Fence & Deck Connection to others. Their prices are competitive and their workmanship is one-of-a-kind. Thanks again!

Lindsay from Havre de Grace, MD

Thank you Steve Nehus, great job. My fence looks great real happy. The guys who came to install were a great bunch of guys. Cleaned my yard nice, even with all the rain we had, even took away yard waste I had in yard without asking, they just did it.

I am very happy with my new fence installed by Fence & Deck Connection. It has made a big improvement to my yard. Salesman Steven N. came out to survey my fencing needs and I received a quote a week later. Other companies came out but never sent me a quote. The price was good for removing a chain link fence and installing 115 ft of vinyl fence and two gates. Comparable if not better than other bids. They were able to find a style of fence that I wanted that was not pictured in their brochure.

The workers did exactly what was needed to install the posts to attach the fence. This required a jack hammer to take out a small section of concrete. The foreman (Alberto) came later in the day to make sure the fence was being installed correctly. He noticed the fence and gate did not look good with the concrete pillars that were there. He suggested taking them out and extending the fence in their place. This required extra work of removing and hauling away the pillars and moving the already installed posts, and using the jack hammer to remove some concrete. As an extra bonus they hauled away all of the shrubs I tore out where the fence was being installed. This exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend Fence and Deck Connection, for a fair price, quality work, and probably more then you expected to have the best looking fence in the neighborhood.

Hello Steve, I am very pleased with my deck, the quality, appearance and completion turnaround. So much that I have referred two of my neighbors to you and your company. The service I received from you, TJ and Carl totally exceeded my expectations. Every question and/or concern was always responded to and addressed timely. It was a very smooth process and a pleasure to work with all of you.

Valerie from Reisterstown, MD

I am pleased to state how convinced we were to go with your company because of the way that you communicated with us from the beginning. There was no question that we asked to which you did not provide an answer even when you needed to verify first. You responded immediately all of the time. You met our schedule dates including appointments. I would recommend you personally to anyone for this purpose and hope that your company knows how you affected our decision and why.

Joe from Perry Hall, MD

Steve did an excellent job. Jose and crew were very professional. They worked in the rain and on weekends... wish everyone worked as hard as these guys to get the job done. The quality and craftsmanship of your decks, is above all the rest! We have a beautiful deck to last a life time... Thank You Fence and Deck connection.

Steven, I wanted to thank you for your expertise in helping us choose the deck and fence that best suit our needs! We love our new fence and Brian was very helpful, courteous and friendly to deal with. Our deck is gorgeous and the process was very pleasant. Carl was the first to reach out to me by email and kept me up to speed from the beginning to the end of the project. His level of communication was exceptional and I greatly appreciated the time he took to share updates with me. Eddie and his crew were very hard working and finished our deck in 1 1/2 days much to our delight! Lennel was wonderful to deal with also, as I met him both before and twice after the project was completed. We highly valued the fact that your company has such strong quality assurance steps in place. I will most definitely refer your company to anyone with a fence or deck need!

We really love our new fence! We have been outside as much as possible, enjoying our backyard that now has a private and well constructed barrier from the alley.

The crew that came out to install the fence was fantastic. They were professional, efficient, and sensitive to the rest of my property. When there was a question about construction or any adaptations that had to happen, communication was easy and I was very pleased to be informed about any changes that needed to happen.

Our salesman Steve was a pleasure to work with. He knew what would work on our property and was always easy to get a hold of when a question came up. We felt respected and that we were getting a very fair deal for the product and services.

We did not have much contact with Bob, the production manager. I can only say that the sale and installation went so smoothly, I can’t imagine that we would have had to speak with him.

Thanks again for the great work!

Lindsey and Angie from Essex, MD

Just wanted to send a thank you to you and the entire crew for the work done. From the initial meeting with you, to the final construction of the fence, everything was handled effortlessly and professionally. The fence is lovely. I've gotten many compliments from neighbors. And, more importantly it has turned my yard into a peaceful oasis. Thanks again to all of you.

The split rail fence project went very well from the time we met until the project was complete.

The crew was on time and worked through the day even while it was raining.

They removed the old fencing and cleaned up before leaving.

Thank you.

Steven Nehus was a great salesman, he explained everything to us about the fence installation and all the required permits. He walked through our yard and took the necessary measurements. He also gave us his contact information if we had a concern we could contact him.

The crew moved quickly and they got the job done in one day. The removed an existing fence and put up the fence in the same day. We really love our new fence.

Bob Hannon the production manager of Fence & Deck was great working with as well. His customer service rep contacted me to explain what was going to happen next. They worked around our schedule since we were going on vacation; they had the fence up before we left. Overall our first time experience working with everyone was great. If we had an issue or concern it was addressed and they took care of it.

Sarah from Essex, MD

I respect the professionalism I received from Steven Nehus and Fence & Deck Connection. During our process of choosing a contractor to build our deck we reached out to several companies. Steve was the only one to stay true his words and come by physically and give us an estimate. It showed that he and Fence & Deck Connection are respective of their clients. The work was also done in a timely matter.

Steve. The crew was great that installed the fence. They went above and beyond. Could not believe the clean up they did when done. The fence looks great and you were a pleasure to deal with. I will recommend you and your company to anyone in the market for fence. Thank you.

Carl from Halethorpe, MD

First time I dealt with Steve was to build a fence and because that was such a smooth and fast process, I decided to contact F&D Connection again to have a deck built for my townhouse. As expected, communicating with Steve and Carl to get the deck built was excellent. From day one, I had all the information on what will be included in my deck and the timeline of when the project will get started and how long it will take. Even through the process of building the deck, I was updated constantly on the timeline. The deck turned out amazing and so far I have been getting nothing but compliments from friends and family who have visited. Thank you for everything F&D Connection.

I was pleased with the way Steve handled the measurements and other details of the project. Both my wife and I are very satisfied with the fence.I can't say enough about the crew.I told one of the guys that the ground was tough enough to dig into in spring and summer. I would not have attempted what they did. They're all very hard workers. They made quite a good statement for your company.

The new fence is great! I enjoyed working with you on this project. You are very knowledgeable and helped me make choices that were best for my needs. My yard is an odd shape, with a hill and one narrow gate spot. Fortunately these things were not at all a problem for you and the team. The fence looks beautiful and most important to me, it keeps my dogs safe.

Thank you very much!

Steven Nehus:

Steven, We're happy to express our praise for your company's performance on our projects. We were confident the new deck rails and the fence would be well-built and attractive, but we were stunned at just how beautiful they turned out. Our back yard went from "ho hum" to "wow!" in a matter of weeks. Your crews even made some adjustments "on the fly" to address problems they found during construction and took whatever time was needed to make the finished product just perfect. We've received many glowing compliments from neighbors and visitors who have commented on how nice it looks. We couldn't be happier with the design, the products, the installation, and your customer service. Please don't hesitate to use our name as a reference.

Thank you!

Thanks to everyone at Fence and Deck connection for a superb job! We were referred to Fence and Deck by a friend who also used them for their fence. From the first initial contact to the follow up after installation, everyone at Fence and Deck was professional, courteous and responsive! Our consultant, Steven Nehus did an excellent job guiding me throughout the process and was very kind, and professional. He provided lots of helpful, clear and straight forward information about the fencing types, installation process and pricing. Not once did we feel pressured or coerced in our selection process. In addition, Steven and the staff were very patient with our HOA approval process, and provided me with the necessary documentation as needed and permits in a timely fashion. Steven and the other staff responded quickly to my emails and calls. The day of installation was quick, efficient and painless! The crew was professional and our yard was spotless after the install-it was as if our fence appeared out of thin air! I also appreciated the follow up we received to ensure everything was to our liking. Overall we had a lovely experience with Fence and Deck and our expectations were exceeded. I would definitely use them again and would recommend them with confidence. Thanks for a great job!

Heather from Abingdon, MD

Thank you for building our fence. I think you guys provided a very good easy process for us. We appreciate your flexibility with the dates and are impressed with the quality of work that you and your team provided. We will be looking ahead in the next couple of years of expanding our deck to include an area with pavers that would lead to a fire pit. We will definately keep you guys in mind when we are ready for that project!


Rob and Renee from Severn, MD
