Northland Fence vs. The Other Guys

Dji 0306

We understand that there are other options in the Minnesota area besides Northland Fence, so what makes us different from the other guys? How do we stand out?

Northland Fence started right here in Minnesota back in 2004. It was initially a two-man operation between our owner, Patrick, and one other employee. Nowadays, Northland Fence has over 100 employees! Patrick had worked for years with his family in the fencing industry, learning how to install fencing from his father when he was little and sticking with the industry even today. As a family-owned business, we treat our employees and customers like they’re also a part of our family. We want to offer you the best and ensure you get quality fencing that lasts.

We make sure to treat our employees right as well. We pay them during the winter and down seasons and ensure they’re well taken care of. This ensures that we have long-term employees who have experience and offer the best service possible. They’ll be there during the length of your warranty if you ever need service or repairs, unlike other fence installers who often subcontract out. If your fence needs repair 5 years from now, subcontractors are often long gone so you get stuck with a broken fence despite whatever warranties were promised.

Northland Fence will always be here to honor our warranties. With 4.9 stars out of over 800 reviews on Google, our clients have given many reasons why our service matters and why they’ll keep coming back. Here are just a few tidbits from them.

“Great team of people, very courteous and accommodating.  Matt really worked hard to make me happy and involved me whenever there were options rather than assuming what I would like.” – KG

“I have worked with other companies before. Still, Northland Fence is by far the best in all aspects: professionals, on-time, quality of work, & customer service. I had Matt, Trevor, & Phillip come to my house & install a beautiful vinyl fence. They were super friendly & respectful. They addressed all my concerns. They are really good at what they do. Northland Fence is a 5-star company.” – Thomas Nebi

“Northland Fence is fantastic! If you have a fence project they are your MUST-GO TO on fencing! I originally quoted with 6 to 7 companies back in the Fall of 2021, and Northland Fence was the second best price, but the warranty and amazing reviews over the competitors made me choose them for the project, and I am glad I did! The fence looks amazing, they were always responsive and professional and I just couldn’t be happier!” – David Olivera
