Nine years ago I bought a home that needed renovating, so over the years I have dealt with many contractors, both good and bad.  I contracted Modern Fence to fence in my yard.  Phil was professional, listened to me, and paid attention to the details that I requested. Modern Fence delivered quality workmanship and to my satisfaction.  Two years later, when we had the hail storm, I called Modern Fence to repair the damages done to my fence during the storm.  Phil promptly came to my home and replaced the damaged sections of the fence.  In my opinion, of all the contractors I have dealt with, Phil has been a contractor that is true to his word, does the work for a fair price and his team does excellent work.

Thursday, January 10 2010 I purchased a large PVC fence fro Phil Marin Approximately 7 years ago. From minute number one Phil and his men were nothing short of professional and accommodating. The fence was put up in an efficient manner utilizing expert installers. The fence has not moved and has stayed straight as an arrow even with the snow plow coming by and piling large amounts of snow against it. One time the snow was actually to the very top of the fence ! My fence recently got hit by paint-balls which put several holes in the panels. I called Phil and he was over my house in 2 hours to assess the damage. He again proved to me why i chose this company in the first place....he personally repaired the broken panels quickly and meticulously. Again job well done!! I would not hesitate to recommend Modern Fence to anyone seriously looking  for a quality fence. The price will be right , the work will be stellar, and Phil will stand by his product for years to come.

Respectfully submitted by Keith Lamanna, Torrington CT.

To whom it may concern,

 Phil Marin owner of Modern Fence installed a fence in our backyard in the summer of 2011. It was one of the best improvements we made on our house. We were indecisive about what color to get and Phil recommended a beige and white combination. What a difference it made to our yard!! We thoroughly enjoy sitting in our yard on summer days and relish the privacy we now have. we are in our own little paradise now !

 Phil and his men were efficient and neat about their work. They worked diligently on some of the hottest days even though it was early June. Then in the Fall a branch came down from a storm and damaged a section of our new fence. Phil and his crew were there very shortly after to replace the section and you would never know it had been damaged.

 I highly recommend the quality of Phil Marins work and expertise. We are thoroughly satisfied with his worksmanship and the quality of the fencing materials.

Phil about the fence your crew installed on our property this month. They did a great job, my wife and i couldn't be happier the way it looks. Even my neighbor commented on it. She said how beautiful it looks and how it compliments the backyard. The two installers were courteous and friendly. Phil, my experience with Modern Fence was a pleasure and will definitely recommend you to family and friends, I'm glad I found you for this job. Thank you so much for your help on getting this job done for us and making our yard look fantastic.

When my husband and I decided it was time to put up a fence in our backyard we started searching for local fence companies to do the job for us. We ended up meeting with three and by far Modern Fence stood out from the rest. Not only did they give us a great price, but we really appreciated the time that Phil the owner spent with us to give us recommendations on what type of fence would work best for our needs and how to best layout the fence with our backyard, house and driveway. When we made the decision to go with Modern Fence, they delivered exactly what we ordered on time. We couldn’t be happier with the fence and the service that we received. When any of my neighbors ask me who did my fence, I gladly tell them about my experience with Modern Fence and recommend them highly.

Attention: Phil

AS a customer of “Modern Fence” we would like to say how satisfied we were with the work that was done on our property. A guardrail / Fence made of 4’x8’x10’ rails with 8’x8’x6’ post ( dug3’deep ) was installed around our parking lot. The quality of the workmanship was exceptional. The work was done “on time” and the cost was reasonable. We would recommend “Modern Fence” to anyone in need of a professional company.

I would like to tell you what a very nice job your men did on our fence. I cant believe how fast the fence went up. Your men worked very hard in the hot weather everyday. They were very neat And quiet. I would definitely recommend you to anybody.                        

Thanks Again,

Lewis Ledoux

Dear Phil,

I couldn't have picked a nicer fence or ever dreamed of how nice it would turn out. It is straight, level, and i couldn't ask for any more. Your boys were really very nice. neat, polite, friendly, and did a terrific job. You can be proud of their work as i am.  It was a pleasure doing business with you. Everything is past my expectations in looks.  Even the neighbor marveled at the difference in the yard. With all my best wishes.

    Thank You for doing such a wonderful job. My store never looked so good. 

The Fence we chose really makes the plaza stand out and really catches the eye.

Everybody that comes in has complimented it & I have recommended you to all of them.

Your workers left no mess on the site and cleaned each panel after installation.

That shows a hard working Co'

Re Modern Fence letter of recommendation,

 Phil and the guys at Modern Fence were excellent. They worked with me to pick out a fence that fit our needs. They came when they said they would, installed a quality fence, and left my yard spotless. I could not be happier and look foward to using them again soon.

Modern Fence did a great job fixing our fence after hurricane Sandy. I called them on a Saturday morning and Phil came by within an hour to assess the damage. The estimate was very reasonable and he even worked with my insurance company to complete the job. The work was done quickly and efficiently and clean-up by the crew was spotless. I would definitely recommend Modern Fence. Thanks Phil and crew on a great job !!

Way back in 2001, Modern Fence installed a fence for us.  It was beautiful and we were pleased with the craftsmanship and service.  We were very upset when it fell victim to straight-line winds during a January storm.  Naturally, we called Phil.  He and his crew responded promptly and hauled it away just before the Blizzard of 2013.  We appreciate how prompt and professional they were!

We used Modern Fence in 2011 to install a new vinyl fence. We were so impressed with their professionalism-they were there when they said they would be there, were polite and courteous and cleaned up after themselves.  We are so pleased with the work they did and how great our yard now looks. We definitely recommend Modern Fence and if we ever need fencing again, will definitely use them.

My experience with Modern Fence has been a very good one.  Once a contract for the job was agreed on, the work was scheduled within a couple of weeks.  The workers were very cordial and efficient getting the job done and in a very timely fashion.  Clean up was remarkable! I do not hesitate to highly recommend Modern Fence.

I wanted to put up a fence on my property. And living near Modern Fence I thought I would stop in. As I entered the yard I met Phil Marin. He was very knowledgeable and explained everything to me. That same afternoon he came to my house to check out what to do. Phil told me what he thought was best. I signed the contract, and in about a week or so the fence came in. The workers soon came after and started to put the fence up. In about a week the fence was completed, and it looks great! They did a fine job. When the job was done they cleaned up perfect. I would recommend Modern Fence to all my friends and potential customers. FineJob!!!                                                                                                                                                                   Sincerely,

RE: Modern Fence

To whom it may concern:

Two years ago I hired Modern Fence to put up a fence on my property in Plymouth CT.

At the time I spoke to Phil regarding my fencing needs and the fence was installed the following day.

If and when I need another fencing project completed, I would definitely call Modern Fence.

 Jack Spinelli

We recently had a new fence installed by Modern Fence Company.

One sentence can sum up our whole experience:

Incredible service, impeccable worksmanship and extremely neat and clean.

Our experience was enjoyable and our fence is the best!

Definitely will call upon Modern Fence Company again and will surely recommend them to others!

Hi Phil,

Our experience with Modern Fence has been nothing short of wonderful. Instalation was very streamlined and professionally done, in a timely manner. We have had occasions to call upon Phil when mother Nature wreaked havoc on our trees which took down part of our fence. Phils responce was always quick and restored our fence to its prior state. We've been very satisfied with the worksmanship at Modern Fence and don't hesitate to recommend them to friends.

A. and S. Stevens

We would hire Modern Fence without hesitation for any of our fencing needs. They installed a 8 ft white vinyl fence around our yard 3 years ago and it still looks as nice as the day it was installed 3 years ago. One of our dogs is an escape artist and likes to dig "under" fences. Phil and his crew went the extra mile and made sure the bottom panel of the fence was flush with the ground so there wasn't any space to dig. Excellent job Phil Recommend you to any potential customers.

Sincerely,  Jean and Fred Arnansky

Dear Phil,

I would like to take e moment to thank you for the wonderful job did on our new fence. The work you have done for us over the past 25 years has allway's been completed  so quickly and professionally.

Sincerely, Ed. N


Modern Fence installed a top quality product around our yard and on top of a new concrete retaining wall. We had a total of three companies come out to price the job. The two companies before Modern Fence, Two people came out to measure and assessed the areas measured and left. They did not come with samples, color chart or any information on the materials. They also did not inform us that the original area that we were asking for was not allowed by city ordinance.

When Phil showed up to measure we discussed the scope of the job and he measured the areas while i looked at the color samples he brought for me. When he was done Phil informed us of the city regulations about about fencing close to the street. If we had not known of that, our fence would have to been removed  had it been put in by someone who had no idea.

After several chances made to our original plans we decided to have Modern do the job. Not only were they much lower priced than the other companies but their product was of a much higher Quality. They were the only ones willing to work all by hand and not bring large equipment and destroy our yard and new driveway just to make the installation "easier" ! Phil and his men did the work by hand and had no problems.Modern Fence was here each day as scheduled and did a clean up job at the end of each day- no mess was left.

Phil and his men installed the entire job within the time frame quoted. We were very happy with the work and the product installed and are happy to recommend Modern Fence to our friends and neighbors.

Tim and Mary Gaity

To whom it may concern,
  I was very pleased with the fence I purchased and had installed by
 Phil Marin of Modern Fence. He was very courteous to me and was
 on site for the entire installation. I was also surprised that the cost
 for the labor, and material was significantly cheaper than a quote
 I had previously obtained from lowes home improvement center
 for the exact same style fence. I will hire Phil to install another
 fence on my property again this year thanks guys.

We had our beautiful fence installed a few years ago by Modern Fence.  We are very happy with the professional installation and quality of the fence. It has withstood a few hurricanes and a blizzard and still looks as perfect as the day it was installed. I would highly recommend Modern Fence and their quality fencing.

   To whom it may concern,

I had a fence installed during the summer of 2012, Modern Made it easy and Phil was very helpful in explaining the products and the whole process. Their workmanship was at a high standard. I recommend their products to anyone I come across looking for fence. I believe that if you are thinking about installing a fence contact Phil of Modern Fence and you will not be dissapointed.

To Phil,

A few words cannot describe the excellent job you and your crew have done for us at our new Southington home, it looks great!

We are also recommending Modern Fence to everyone who is looking for great contractor experience, Thanks again
