Perfect for what I needed! The screen hides my trash cans well. Went together super easy--the directions were clear..... all the way around I'm pleased.
I purchased several hundred feet of this fencing to help keep our pets in. It does the job, and on top of it, makes our house and yard look even nicer. Also, this material is very durable. We live out in the country where we get high winds, and lots of snow, and this fencing holds up to all of it. The fencing is very easy to install (I was able to do it without assistance), and my order came within a couple business days. Very happy with the product, and the customer support has been great as well!
As a first time user of the WamBam fence I was skeptical of the structural stability of the these fences. After completing my first WamBam instillation I can honestly say that these fences rock! Instillation was truly as easy as they make it seem, the fence is structurally sound, and the quality of the materials is equal to if not better than most commercial grade fence manufactures. I would highly recommend this fence option for any residential or light commercial application.
Great system. Love that it can be installed virtually without any digging. I had pretty rocky soil I was putting the posts in, so I did have to make some adjustments as the posts were being driven from time to time, but felt that the overall installation went pretty smoothly. Few suggestions for people trying the "no dig" fence system by Wam Bam for the first time. Read the instructions through a few times before beginning, and watch some of the YouTube installation videos. Also make sure to pull a string for the fence line. I got the big bertha driver - not the mechanical one that can be rented. I ran just shy of 300 ft. all said and done. The driver was extremely useful, but given the soil conditions I was working with, I had to re-plumb the post several times while driving. There is a "collar" provided with the no dig kit that will adjust for some out-of-plumb installation of the post, but it will only correct for about 1/4 to 1/2" out of alignment, so make sure you check the post plumb between every few pounds. Finally, be prepared to spend several days installing this fence. I just tried to knock out about 3-4 sections per day after work each evening and it took a few weeks of labor all said and done. But the vinyl fence looks really nice and I'm looking forward to the low maintenance and no need for painting every few years.
I purchased a Jimmy picket custom gate for my pool deck. The product looks great and is well made system. The instructions were good, It took about 1 hour to assemble and install and requires basic carpentry skills. I purchased the fencing from another company and when I went to buy the gate from the same fencing company the cost was outrageous. I was recommended to try Wambam and found the cost of the jimmy picket gate about 50% cheaper. It looks Great! About 7 months later one set of hinges were not closing all the way. Paul from Wambam assisted me and sent out a new set of hinges immediately. I am very happy with the Jimmy picket gate system and Wambam fencing and would recommend it to everyone.
The Wambam fence product was incredibly strong. The product went together very easily. Anyone with basic skills could assembly this. I feel the product will last a lifetime. Strongly recommend using the post pounder. Saves a tremendous amout of time and effort. Plan ahead and the end result will be perfect. Would definitely recommend this product to anybody. I give the product 5 out of 5 stars.
The very first fence panel I needed to install connected directly to an existing fence and this made that SO easy. I measured up from the bottom of the existing post to the bottom of the existing rail, placed the bottom of the bracket at that mark and centered it - two screws later it was installed. When I got to the top bracket I realized that it needed to be placed AFTER the Steady Freddy panel had been built. I put the panel together - slid the slot at the bottom of the bracket onto the top of the panel and drove the screws in - perfect. I highly recommend these brackets if you are mounting to an existing fence or house.
What can I say except this is an excellent product all the way around. The staff is fantastic, fast service, easy to install, great videos and instructions. This is my second fence installation. I had it done in my previous house. Lots of good comments. Easy to clean with little to no maintenance. This is why I went with them a second time around in my new home. Once again lots of complements. I love the privacy my fence gives me. Furthermore we just had some high winds of 40-45mph and my fence is still standing but some my neighbors fences are tilting over. Beautiful!!!! Thanks a bunch....
Found Wam Bam from doing some research for a quality vinyl fence to surround a patio. Checked out their website videos and thought it looked too easy. So, I checked a few places locally then decided to simply get a quote and a sample of the Steady Freddy fence. Much to my surprise, the quote came the next day and the fence sample a couple of days after that. After checking out the sample I was very impressed and decided to order. I received my order in a few days. They even sent me a picture of my order before it left the warehouse! Fence went up in a day or so and is every bit of what is advertised. If you are considering a quality fence for your project, do yourself a favor and call Wam Bam first and check out a sample. Very simple to install and stronger than you expect. One major bonus, it will not need maintained beyond spraying off with garden hose occasionally. They are take your project as their own and are very professional and super easy to work with. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK WAM BAM!!!
Wow, super thrilled when I discovered online and seen no digging, no cement required for fence installation and was instantly sold on WamBam. I am a 53 year old woman, who installed the Even Steven fence 100% by myself! Yes completely by myself. I did have people on standby in the event I botched the project, did my homework, read all instructions and laws at least three times, watched all the online videos, checked off the check list, and happy to report it was a successful installation. Also, when I got tired, stopped working as I was determined to have no mistakes. The Basic Betty pole pounder was awesome to use, I recommend their pounder, not a HomeDepot one. Also the fence product is high quality and the "donut" is perfect for the final alignment. I did have a damaged vinyl post and missing screws, due to shipping, yet a replacement was sent within a two business day delivery, free of charge. I have to give special recognition to Linda from WamBam as she never hesitated answering any of my questions and her customer service is top notch! Thank you Linda! My neighbors, friends and coworkers have taken an interest in what I have accomplished on my own, and I proudly say check out WamBam Fence, online, if I can do it so can you! Truly a satisfied customer, thank you WamBam Fence! Sincerely Colleen Barbour, Punta Gorda, Florida.
When I was a child, I can still remember my mother and her friends talking about the green shuttered house & white picket fence. Now all these years later my wife wants the white picket fence. Wanting nothing more than to please Sue (my wife) I started looking (oh ya). Wood fences need constant repair because of deterioration, rot, peeling paint, etc. (Note the painting back in the day could be done for a home cooked meal from a hobo or bindle stiff.) Now I would have to do it myself. “No thanks!” Not able to afford a contractor, what to do, what to do? I needed something better than wood. I did not want to dig holes, lift heavy bags of cement, mixing with water, and pouring it into the holes to hold the posts upright. All of this led to my quest for something else. I started to search the internet. Not an easy task for a 80 Year old senior citizen. After bumbling through the internet checking Lowe’s, Home Depot, and local fence companies for what seems like forever, I somehow stumbled Across this funny name Wam Bam fence company (what the hell, give it a go!) I called the company and talked to a lady named Linda about their no dig vinyl picket fence. After several conversations with Linda, I decided to give it a try. What the hell, I have lots of friends to help me (haha). I wound up doing it myself. Now at 81 and 140 pounds there are pictures showing that I did it! I ran into all of the problems the instructions said were possible. The slope, roots, nest of roots, curve, and more. Even with all this I found the fence to be really forgiving with all my mistakes THANK YOU!
Below is my story of my Wam Bam fence installation. With the end state of me strongly recommending it to anyone looking to put up a fence. I have just recently move my family into a new neighborhood and wanted to put up a fence to keep my dogs and kids away from the pond that was located nearby. After calling around and getting quotes, I was looking at between 10 and 12 thousand dollars to have a fence put in. Then i saw Wam Bam and after some research decided to give it a go. The material for around 360 linear feet was around 5 thousand dollars. It all arrived very quickly. After getting all the boxes in the driveway I was starting to feel very overwhelmed and discouraged because it was such a large project to do on my own and for the first time. I actually started calling around to see if I could hire someone to help me but in the end I just started it on my own. To make this initially be less overwhelming pay a little extra and get the fences preassembled. This will save you a ton of time. After i put in a few stakes (strongly suggest the gas pounder it made the stakes extremely easy to place) I started to get the hang of putting in the stakes so i continued on to complete the 1st side. I was worried though that my fencing would fit between the stakes though. I followed the instructions and was pleasantly surprised to find that all the fence segments went up perfectly. Once the 1st side was complete I had the confidence to put up the rest of the fence and I did. I ended up having to put 3 angles that were less than 90 degrees so they gave me the attachments to do so. I also had to cut 5 pieces smaller to make them fit which was extremely easy. I also installed 1 gate and 1 double gate. This was probably the hardest part but still definately doable. Biggest recommendations: buy the fence preassembled, Set up a good line using a solid string and anchor, Get the proper tools (electric drill, portable drill, leveler), Rent the gas powered pounder. Lastly if you have any problems whatsoever this company has the best customer service I have ever dealt with. They walked me through several problems and were always more than willing to help and send me anything I needed to make this a successful project. I highly recommend any product from Wam Bam and ensure you that if I can do it anyone can. Good luck on your project. Thank you Wam Bam for a great product and all the help.
Great company to work with! Stephen and Chris were awesome! This is the easiest fencing ever. It took us 2 full days to put up the fence. We had around 230 feet of fence to put up. I would recommend this product to everyone, especially if you are attempting to put up your own fence. I would also suggest this fencing to contractors since it is so easy to put up. I would buy this fencing again in the future.
I can't say enough about this fence. We did the fence with a Captain America post caps - absolutely stunning and stately. Install couldn't be easier. We rented the post pounder and had 12 posts done in a little over an hour, only due to some very thick roots causing us some problems. All told, over 100' of fencing done in three hours. I'm not one to write reviews, but this product absolutely deserves it. Thanks to the WamBam team for making it such a great experience.
Does the rating only go to 5? Because I would have rated it a 100!! My husband and I just got done installing our new fence. Over 400 feet of it!! What a great experience!! I worked with Linda on the ordering. She made it so easy. We sent her a drawing and she sent back the list of what we needed, the pricing, the timing and some questions/ideas. We went back and forth a few times before we finalized everything and her suggestions we very helpful. Also, before I placed the order I watched every video!! What a cool way to learn how to install the fence. What a great idea! We rented the gas pounder since we had 60 posts to put in. What a Godsend! I highly recommend it. It was very easy to use and WamBam makes it super easy to return it. Between the installation guides and the video watching, we had no problem getting going. It all seemed too easy! We converted two single gates into one double gate on a Saturday. We had a couple questions about how to get the latches on correctly so we called the help line. We got a call back from...Steve, I think it was. He called the back the same day and was able to walk my husband through it. We are in kind of a windy area and we have realized already that the fence is very sturdy! I love it! Our little 5 pound Yorkie is loving all her new freedom to run around instead of being on a leash!! Oh, and for those wondering, the pickets are spaced 2.9" apart and she cannot get through them. And because there is a bottom rail spaced 2" from the ground (lower if you want), she can't get underneath it either. The fence is exactly how it was described, both in quality and ease of installation, oh, and price. Did I mention the price. We got quotes to have a fence installed at over 3 times what we paid for the WamBam fence. And, it was no more expensive that what you get at Lowes or HD, but much nicer and much easier. I couldn't be happier with WamBam and I have been shouting their accolades from the rooftop! No seriously, I have been telling everyone I know about it. Thanks WamBam!!!
This product is as advertised. Great quality and superb customer service. I even had a couple of shipping damaged posts that the team at Wambam covered and shipped at no additional cost to me. We are extremely happy with our investment and would highly recommend this to any would-be fence installer or home owner!
Our fence adds beautification to our home as well as our neighborhood. Every passerby stares, comments and seems to really see the difference the fence makes. However, we couldn't have done it without Wambam's product and staff. The staff is especially respectful, professional and customer service friendly and that is the reflection of EXCELLENCE! Thank You, The Roark Family
First of all, the customer service is unbelievable. They are available, helpful and flexible. They'd answered a ton of my questions before and during the installation. I can't really express how happy I am with their customer service. I have never installed a fence or railing before and my helper hasn't done it before either. I won't say it's extremely easy, but it's something that you can learn. the more challenging is your lot, the more you'll learn. We ordered Handy Andy and are very pleased with the results, the fence looks professionally installed. It looks great, goes so well with the grass, trees, leaves and snow, if you want an aesthetically good looking fence. In addition to looking great, this fence saves you a ton. I got a quote from Lowe's for 11.6k and WamBam fence costed me a little less than 3k (all per-assembled panels). Getting anything besides the manual post driver is an overkill, in my opinion. We used Betty (the smallest post driver) and that was enough for 25 posts. You are only going to pound a few times before checking on your post, so if the post driver is too heavy, that would tire you up sooner (just getting it on and off the post). Two people is definitely a plus.You do need to read the instructions. Just FYI, the tool list is not complete, since their head screws aren't the same diameter, but that's minor. This fence is more forgiving on a sloppy ground. I know they say it can accommodate 10 inches every 7 feet, but it can rack more.
I was hesitant purchasing a fence online, but after receiving pricey quotes by a local fence company and doing a little research on driving poles into the ground rather than digging and pouring concrete, I decided to give it a chance. I honestly could not be happier that I did give it a chance. First off, their customer service is impeccable. Not only was communication with their company top-notch, they pay attention to all the little details. Things like sending pictures of the product before it leaves the warehouse and providing a detailed video of what to expect on delivery day made such a difference. One piece was damaged and after reaching out to WamBam, I had the replacement within a few days. On the customer service topic, I would like to specifically mention Denise at WamBam. I got the pleasure of working with her through the purchasing and installation. She was really great and WamBam is fortunate to have her. I've ripped, crumbled, burned, tossed, swore at and even cried over installation directions in the past. Not these direction though. The directions that WamBam has created are some of the best that I've ever worked with. There is a lot of detail in the instructions. I would urge anyone to take the time ahead of installation to thoroughly read the directions and then use them when doing the installation. It will make the job easier. Lastly, we should talk about the fence. Again, purchasing online had me a bit uneasy because I couldn't really get a feel for the fence. The sample did help, but it wasn't the Slim Jim fence that I had my eye on so there was still a bit of apprehension on my part. Anyway, I moved forward with the purchase and, again, I am so glad that I did. The black aluminum Slim Jim fence is very attractive. It handles slopes very well and the swivel brackets do a nice job if you have any angles. Call me crazy, but I'm really looking forward to the seeing the contrast between the black fence and the white snow. I should also mention we've had some 60 mph wind recently. The open aluminum fence isn't quite the sail that a closed vinyl fence is, but there was no noticeable movement at all, so my fence certainly passed my local wind test with flying colors. In the end, I would recommend WamBam to anyone looking for a fence. If you are a DIYer, you'll have a blast with the installation too.
After searching for a while to find the right fence for the right price we were surprised to find the Wam Bam fence online at such a good price. I did my homework and we decided to go for the fence. We ordered around 260 feet of fence to do our entire backyard. When the pallet arrived I was a little overwhelmed at the amount of boxes but jumped right to it and started planning and laying everything out. Now I am not a builder or contractor but am fairly handy and enjoy figuring out how to build and fix things. Let me tell you this fence was simple to install and the gas powered pounder made the process of installing the anchors a breeze. If you are going to install a fair amount of fence, the gas powered pounder is a must. If not for that, I would still be pounding post in the ground as we had around 37 post to install. The install took me about two or three weeks to do between work and taking my time. I like things perfect. All in all it took me longer than it would a normal install as I worked on it for only a three or fours hours a day due to work and other obligations. Once I had the post in, the rest fell into place like butter. I have gotten so many compliments on the fence and my home builder even stopped by to compliment it and ask about it. Bottom line, if you are looking for a good quality fence at a good quality price then Wam Bam fence is the one for you. The customer service at this company is hands down the best I have come across and Linda was a huge help. Speaking with her made the whole process extremely easy and everyone I spoke with at the company was nothing but helpful. I don't plan on installing another fence for a long time but if I do, I will not hesitate to call up Wam Bam again.
My Nervous Nelly Fence went in easily and looks beautiful. When my father and I were finishing the install, neighbors were coming up and complementing my Nervous Nelly Fence and asking about it. Thanks WamBam!
Thanks to Stephen for all the help. Installation went smoothly, as expected. Reading all of the excellent installation guides twice, ahead of time, made a difference. I used a manual post pounder and found it easy to drive the posts plumb by duct-taping two small torpedo levels at right angles on the post. Pre-assembling the gate before gluing it was a help. I did it on the garage floor and after squaring it up I drew a pencil outline around it for reference. That made it easy to keep things square while gluing them together. Also, I used a couple of tubes of superglue to glue the gate pickets in the gate at bottom and top. The glue wasn't visible and made the gate much more rigid.
I can't say enough about how great of an experience I had with WamBam Fence. I installed about 175 ft of Jiminy Picket with 3 gates in my backyard and it looks fantastic. I had originally gotten a bid for a professionally installed vinyl fence, but decided to go with WamBam after I found them. Choosing to go with them saved me close to $5K and I've got an amazing looking fence as well. I can't say enough about the great support both Denise and Stephen provided me with during the entire process. There definitely is still a lot of work involved with your install, but if you follow directions you'll be surprised just how easy it is to complete the project. If I can offer one word of advice, get the gas pounder for your posts as it's money very well spent. I highly recommend WamBam and will be referring anyone I know looking for a vinyl fence application in the future!
I had a great experience with the product and personnel. I purchased 3 gate with 2 of them making a doubled gate. As product was being delivered I received a call from WamBam telling me the instructions measurements where not correct and helped with how to measure. I installed 3 gates and 19 panels. The install took a long weekend. I sent in pictures to show installation.
Great experience with the install, it was still work, but saved money. The key is to install one complete panel slowly and learn then you can go full speed. The key is to drive the poles leveled (constantly check the level) and maintain the proper distance from the other pole (may shift during pounding). Then everything else will fit nicely. If the panels do not fit, don't force it, I ruined one or two pole beam covers, just cut the panel. This is a two person install as it is difficult to drill the tek screws to the pole without moving the donut. I did not dig to have a beam buried look which saved a lot of time, still looks good. With enough pressure, tek screws went in without pre drilling. The steady Freddy was about 170 feet long, it took one full day for me to drive all the poles by myself and one full day for install with my brother. Highly recommend the auto pounder, saved me a lot of time and muscle pain. Good luck!
Where do I start. This is a great product.I built a 24'X 18' deck 20 years ago and of corse used lumber for all my fencing,railing,benches ect. Well quess what,it rotted out.The sub frame and decking were still in great shape so I ripped everything else down and started looking for something that was maintance free to replace it with.Thats when I found Wam Bam on the internet.I delt with Linda right from the start with my first order.(because I under estimated).She had answers for everything I threw at her and was wonderfull to deal with.I called Linda with my second order and she remembered me by name.WOW.How often does that happen.I had a defective part with that order. When I called Linda she sent that piece right out to me.Talk about great service.Now to the product.Top quality,easy and fun to install as described.Great on line instructions.You guys are the best.Keep up the great work.I will enter your I want to win contest with pics soon.Thanks again.
Cannot recommend this enough. The instructions were very well done and I put in 7 sections of fence in about 7 hours, with a couple of corners. As another reviewer mentioned, the slotted posts are nice looking, and they may doing the corners very straight forward. The cut list for doing the scallop fencing was also right on. Great product.
My husband and I installed 325 feet of Handy Andy in 3 days. It was actually fun. There is a small learning curve over the first few panels, but once we got into a rhythm it went very smoothly. Everything arrived packaged logically and without damages and the instructions on the website were clear and straightforward. The electric post hole pounder made this job so much easier. We have had so many compliments and I really cannot say enough good things about this fence. We did find that the preassembled panels were the way to go... on our 3 gates we lost a good bit of time just on assembly, but that's not even really a complaint, just a hint to have everything available pre-assembled.
Great company to work with from start to finish. Steve was very helpful with all questions I had. Very good product easy to install no more digging post hole for me.Fenced in swimming pool with 2 gates less than 2 days.Looks awesome couldn't be happier. Would recommend to all looking to install fence yourself.Again great product and customer service
I really like how sturdy the gate is and how professional it looks. I did have some challenges mounting the gate because the screws that attach the bracket to the post are very long and based on where the holes are positioned, you have a very narrow window where you have to get the screw. If you miss then the screw will pop out the other side and cause some minor blemishes in the post. Other than that minor issue I am very satisfied.
If I could give them more than 5 stars I would. I had a fantastic experience getting this fence installed. I had about 330 linear feet to install so it was definitely not a small job and I am no Bob Vila. I was a little overwhelmed by the size of the job so I contacted some local fencing companies for some quotes to enclose our yard and we were in the $9500 to $11000 range. This was definitely out of our budget. I started comparing different options at Home Depot, Lowes, and Menards. Most of the fences I saw were plain, cheap-feeling, and complicated to install primarily due to digging holes and pouring concrete for the posts. Then I stumbled upon the WamBam brand on Home Depotâ€™s website. I liked what I saw so I decided to visit their website. Thatâ€™s when I learned about the no-dig system. I was a little skeptical at first just like Iâ€™m sure many customers were, but when I requested my free sample I was more than impressed with what I saw. My wife and I made the decision to purchase this fence and letâ€™s just say we couldnâ€™t be happier. The fence is extremely high in quality, very professional looking, and easy to install. I really like the look of the gate posts having the grooves on each side. It adds an extra dimension to the fence. The customer service and support have been outstanding. I experienced a slight delay in receiving the shipment from the trucking company but Denise was all over it and she kept in constant contact with the trucking company (even before I got involved) to make sure that I received the shipment before my planned â€œfence partyâ€. Our dog is extremely happy now that she gets to spend much more time outside without needing supervision. We are expecting our first child around November and now my wife will be able to let the dog out and not worry about her so she can focus on the baby. I am so glad I stumbled upon this company while looking at Home Depotâ€™s website. If I hadnâ€™t I would still be digging holes and pouring concrete with another fence system. I can pretty much guarantee that anyone who uses this solution will be more than satisfied. If I have any future fencing needs I will definitely be WamBamâ€™ing!
OMG!! You want to talk about ease of installation? How does 12 minutes per section sound? You want to talk about appeal? The neighborhood loves the sight of our new fence. Quality? Fit and finish was 100% perfect. You will not/can not find a lower price after installation than this product. I saved 66% versus hiring any local fence installer!
Worth every penny. 28 posts in less than an hour. Easy to keep straight (with an extra set of hands). Where was this when I put up my last fence!!!
I'm a retired general contractor. I've seen a lot of fences over 30 years in the business. I never write reviews, but the WamBam fence is the best I've ever seen. Our Peeping Tom 6" fence has now made it through it's second North Dakota Winter. Just 20 miles from Canada, the Winters can get pretty rough up here - 60 mph winds and 30 degrees below zero are common. This past Winter, high winds pushed snow almost to the top of the fence on one side while there was almost no snow against the other side. I thought for sure the snow load would push the fence over. The fence did not lean at all. It's still perfectly plumb. Last week a wind storm damaged roofs and fences all around us. Cedar posts were snapped off at the ground. No damage to our fence. After 2 years, our fence still looks new and we still get compliments about how good it looks. Our neighbor's vinyl fence (some other brand) is about the same age as ours and is already sagging, and it has rust stains from cheap hardware. I don't believe this fence will ever sag or lean, and I know your stainless steel hardware will never rust. Thanks for a great product. There is nothing shoddy about this fence. No maintenance. No upkeep. Just a rare product that does what it's says it will do.
I put up 6 sections of this in approximately 4-5 hours last night from start to finish. The fence is great and the process couldn't be easier. Definitely better than digging holes...
Good product, friendly service!
In my opinion, even better than advertised. I have zero experience doing this type of thing, and it couldn't have been easier. Such a smart design. But please get the powered post pounder, you will not regret it! High quality. Highly recommended, and looks much better than other vinyl fences that cost so much more and aren't built as well. Has withstood 60+ mph winds no problem, and held through one of the coldest winters in history perfectly. Great customer service makes the decision even easier because someone is with you the whole time. My only complaint is the gate isn't my favorite, with the latch at the top it seems that the bottom can swing out enough for small dogs to possible escape since the plastic will bend. However, I have a small to mid size dog who has not even tried and seems to respect the gate. Just an observation. I highly recommend this fence, you will not be disappointed !
In cutting the lower rail, I incorrectly cut off center so the uprights would not be equidistant from each end post. I spoke to Aaron in CS who magically "found" an extra lower rail in the warehouse, and shipped it to me with the only charge being the shipping. I can honestly say that in dealing with companies, both online and off, for over 50 years, this has to be the best; the best product, the best information on installing, and, without a doubt, the best customer service I have ever experienced. Period! Thanks, Aaron!!!
I can't begin to tell you how impressed we have been with your company. The fence looks fantastic and was very simple to install. Your customer service has been second to none. We just received our replacement parts for our damaged fence, which arrived so quickly we couldn't believe it. Thank you so very much, you restore our faith in American companies. We knew we were ordering a relatively expensive product online, sight-unseen, which could have proven to be a bad choice. However, we have been so pleased. So we are more than happy to recommend your company.
To date I am very happy with the fencing. It hasn't been a year so a whole year with every season should determine its worthiness. I would recommend it to friends and family. Customer service is the "best". That says a great deal about the product.
Very good quality material and workmanship on the product. Easy to install and it looks wonderful. I was so proud of it I enter it in the photo contest. It made the entrance to my driveway to look like a picture you would find in a home improvement magazine.
This fence is simply amazing... so is the customer service. After having multiple people come out to give me an estimate for a fence in my backyard I decided to look into a DIY option. I cam across wambam and was happy to discover an installation option that didn't require me to dig and pour concrete for each post hole. I had a significant elevation change in my backyard and after discussing it with customer service we determined it would work. The installation instructions were very thorough and in one weekend I had a sturdy fence which looked like it was professionally installed. The best part... I saved about $1400! I highly recommend wambam!!
I live in North Dakota where it's always windy. I was extremely skeptical about ordering from WamBam. I did my research, and talked with WamBam about the anchoring system. I decided to give it a try. It's been about 6 months, and it's been perfect. It was easy to install. Once you get a few poles in and the first panel, the rest goes fast. It's been through 40+ mph winds, and is handling our cold winter nicely. If I ever move, I plan on buying and installing this type of fence again!
Great product! Have purchased both the privacy fence and picket fence. Excellent quality, looks great, durable. I highly recommend WamBam products.
I had a great experience with the product and personnel. I had never put up a fence before but had no problem with this one. I watched the instructional video on Ytube and followed the instruction manual and once I got momentum it went up fairly quickly.
I spent several months investigating fencing and this is probably the best purchase I have ever made. I would easily rate this fence and it's support people as 5 star. Late in 2013 we decided to get another puppy and after having issues with him wandering the neighborhood we decided we needed to get a better fence. 15 years ago we had installed an electric fence that worked pretty well for most of our other dogs, but it wasn't working for this new puppy. We wanted to fence in as much of our 1 acre yard as possible to allow the dogs more room to run/play, but I didn't want to spend a ton of money or get something that would require a lot of maintenance. I started doing some research and called several local suppliers to get ideas and general prices. To meet our needs almost all of them suggested installing either chainlink, wood, or vinyl. We didn't like the looks of chain link. The wood would require a lot of maintenance, but all of the ballpark estimates for vinyl were way out of our price range. The vinyl prices ranged from $22,000 to $35,000 installed. Those numbers were definitely out of the budget. I started looking for other options....

We needed a fence to contain my active 5 year old and our dog. We had been pricing fences for a while and I was getting frustrated at how much it would cost us to purchase a fence for our property. My husband found WamBam online and I was a little skeptical because the cost for the fence was more than 1/2 than what we had been quoted. The site is very easy to navigate and we were able to figure out how much material we needed for our property. Linda was a great help with providing quotes and I spoke to her several times asking many questions before finally placing my order. The fencing arrived in a couple of days and my husband was able to install the fence in about 30 hours with the help of his friend. I love the fence. It looks beautiful and very professional and my husband said in all honestly, it was really easy to install. I love it because now my son and my dog can go outside and play in the backyard and I don't have to worry about anyone coming in or getting out. My neighbors said it looks great as well. We strongly suggest getting the gas powered pounder which makes installing go much faster. Thank you WamBam!
Great fence! The instructions were very good and Denise was a big help in getting everything together. Would definitely recommend it to anyone, even the not-so-handy!
I purchased about 250 linear feet of Handy Andy fence and 3 gates for a large backyard remodel this summer. I would highly suggest going with the pre-assembled panels, the time you will save is definitely worth the small upcharge. I also highly recommend the power hammer to install the steel pipes. I really like the look of this fence and the height is perfect for going around our pool. Once you get used to the installation it goes pretty smoothly. Definitely a 2 person job!
I just wanted to write a review of the Jimmy Picket DIY fence that I installed over the past week. First, my background is that I like to take on DIY projects and we have 2 year old twin girls that like to play and play outside, but if there is only my wife or I home, it is too hard because they love to go in opposite directions, hence the reason for the fence. In my municipality, there is an regulation that a side fence and front fence cannot be taller than 36 inches high. I got several estimates to have normal hole dug and concrete poured vinyl fencing put in, but the prices ranged from $4700-$6700. I was not going to spend that, so I did my research and came across the no dig fence solution in Wam Bam Fencing. What a God send. The ordering process was very easy and the employees at Wam Bam are great. I actually rented the gas powered post pounder from a local tool rental place, highly recommend it, and pounded in 27 anchors in 6 hours. I cut all of the pickets and posts down using a miter saw, highly recommend if your cutting, in 3 days basically all day, I was working by myself. The fence looks and works great, I would highly recommend this fence for any use. My family thanks you very much.
Knowing I had an acre of property to enclose, I researched a lot of options and got quotes from many local suppliers. However, none seemed to fit my desires for a system I felt I could tackle, be a high quality material that would hold up to the high wind loads we have, and be a good monetary value. Then I found the Wambam system and all the indicators were this was the choice for me. I connected with Stephen and Denise with my plans and were pleasantly surprised with their responsiveness and true willingness to help so that sold me and I pulled the trigger. All 9000lbs of material showed up a couple weeks later and I was off to the races. I had the first 100+ ft done the first weekend and that was driving posts into some very hard and rocky soil. Even through an issue with a failing pounder a couple weekends into the project, Stephen was incredibly responsive, even on Sundays. After getting a relatively quick replacement the progress continued quickly and efficiently only taking three of us six weekends total(not being the 20-somethings anymore we kinda' slowed down a little in the middle). Ultimately, it has been a few weeks and the fence has received so many compliments besides my own personal pride. This is absolutely the best option one can buy so don't hesitate any longer. It really is a fun system.
We absolutely love our new fence! The entire process went incredibly smooth. Denise was so accommodating to work with for the ordering process. The trucking companies were great to work with on the delivery. The installation went very smooth. We researched for over a year having a wood fence installed with a local company. We are so very happy we bailed on that and went vinyl with WamBam! We keep getting very flattering comments about the fence from our neighbors. Like one neighbor said, â€œit is very elegant.â€ The day after we finished it, we had bad storms with very high winds that damaged trees but the fence withstood the storm just fine. Great price, great product, great companyâ€¦thanks much WamBam Fence!!
I ordered about 200ft of the Jiminy Picket fence and couldn't be happier. Installation was so easy that my friend and I kept waiting to find where we had messed up and, other than me not measuring properly before ordering, everything went in as planned. Denise was always quick and friendly to reply and was able to get me that additional panel & post that I needed quickly so that I could fix my error in calculations. Now my dogs are enjoying their leash-less potty and play time.
What a terrific fence system. Prior to moving to Colorado two years ago, we installed 105 feet of solid-panel WamBam Fence at our home in Wisconsin. It was unbelievably easy to set up and install. Best of all, it was motor-freighted right to our front door eliminating the hassle of having to go to a dealer to pick it up. Then when we moved to our current home,we ordered 56 feet of Jiminy Picket Vinyl Fence. Again, it has been a great addition to our front and rear patios. Kudos to Denise, our customer service/sales rep, who remembered us from two years ago and helped us again. She's even more terrific than the fence.
Thanks so much for great instructions, both on the internet and the ones you sent. Also, thanks to Denise who helped me with questions via the chat line and by phone. You are an excellent company to work with and I will be recommending you to friends and family when they need a fence. The fence is so attractive, it makes our back yard look like a resort.
Fantastic products & service. I gat a quote from an installer $8500, for 170 feet of fence I thought this was very expensive. So I did some research,found a product called wambam on BJ web page and investigated, the same fence came out to $3800. For a better product and a little hard work I installed it alone in about a week of spare time I am 75 yrs old. It came out very good still need to do some aligning.I am very happy with the way it came out. I will post some pictures when I complete the job added a couple of section to block a view of a parking lot, waiting for additional sections.
WamBam makes a great fence! We did a Nervous Nelly 35' run with a gate over the weekend and it looks fantastic! The fence arrived in just a few days after I placed the order. They even called to advise me about something in my order that, at least to them, I didn't seem to need. I over ordered some posts and poles (2 four packs of each) along with a box of 12 post tops to save money. I really only need 7 of each for this run. Because we're only about 1/3 done with the total fence we need to do I over ordered knowing I would need them anyway. They didn't know that and called me about my order. Great service!! Everything fit like a glove, the instructions were easy to follow and they were great with help on the phone when I called them with an issue of my own making. I'll be ordering the rest of my fence soon! I'll post some pictures here soon as well.
I really needed a fence. The old wooden one had seen better days. I was extremely happy with the customer service I got from Linda and Denise, very friendly and helpful. I rented the pounder because I had 27 anchors to install. Wow was that easier than I expected and the fence went together great and looks fantastic. I would definitely recommend WamBam to anyone.
I called WamBam on a recommendation from a friend and glad I did! They are very helpful and they know their product! The gas powered post pounder is a must and would make anyone jealous that has driven a post by hand. I was impressed with the quality of the product itself and all the hardware, so many companies give you low grade screws, latches, brackets etc...WamBam is definitely NOT in that category!! So far we are happy and my wife is already trying to get me to order more to replace part of the neighbor's fence! I would 100% recommend WamBam!
Just placed my second order. Wish we had done this sooner, easy to install and looks great!
It is a great pleasure work with a product that completely lives up to its advertising! Enclosing my 14' x 21' vegetable garden with the Jiminy Picket fence was easy, fun, and darn near fool-proof. I say darn near, because I mis-cut one rail, but the kind folks at WamBam overnighted a replacement part free of charge! The instructions are clear enough, but when I had a question about the gate, I got right through to a technical person who had me back to work in minutes. It's a terrific product and a very clever system. I'm sure I saved several thousand dollars over what I would have paid a fencing company.
Purchased this fence to close in new pool in backyard and it looks fabulous! Not only does it really set off the pool area and meets all pool fence regulations, it is a great product! Easy to install and clean. Customer Service is A++ as well! I would highly recommend this fencing!
I recently installed about 220 feet of the WamBam Steady Freddy Tan fencing. I couldn't be happier with the finished product or the ease of installation! I ran across the WamBam website while I was searching online for vinyl fencing. I was dreading having to dig traditional post holes in the rock hard, clay soil, around my home ( I have two shoulders that probably need surgery! LOL!) I saw the WamBam process and I started to think "Maybe this is the solution I've been looking for"...but I was still skeptical about being able to drive the anchors into my soil. I contacted WamBam and Linda was very helpful in answering my questions, easing my mind about driving the anchors, and helping me determine exactly what I needed for my project. WamBam's customer service has been excellent throughout! My fears about driving the anchors proved to be nothing. I rented one of the gas post pounders. My 12 yr old son helped me and between us we had all 32 anchors positioned and installed in only a few afternoons, working after I got home from work. Once we had the positions laid out, my son would hold the anchor upright and I would climb a step ladder with the post pounder (the Steady Freddy anchors are 8' long). My son would check for plumb with a small level and I would run the pounder. We were driving an anchor every 2 or 3 minutes (this included stopping frequently to see that we were maintaining plumb), once we had the positions worked out. I was amazed! We have some nasty, tough clay by our home. The gas pounder works so good, my 12 yr old would drive the post the last 10 to 12 inches, with no effort. The most time consuming part of my install was the fact that several of my fence sections had to be shortened to make the panels all look even. This wasn't difficult. I just had to take my time and measure twice and cut once! WamBam's vinyl material cuts easily with a simple circular saw. (I used a miter saw for cutting the horizontal sections and a table saw for cutting the panels. You don't need these types of saws, but I have them, so that is what I used). The trickiest thing to build and install was the 6' gate. I had to reread the directions several times and check the dimensions several times, to get the pieces together correctly. Once the gate was assembled, the rest of the install was pretty easy. I am ordering a second latch mechanism, from WamBam, for this gate. This gate is pretty wide and tall and it is a little flimsy with only one latch at the top of the gate. I was worried my dog would be able to push through the bottom corner. A second latch will take care of this. I love my WamBam fence! It looks great! The tan color looks amazing. The install was a snap. I have lots of people commenting on how great this fence looks! I recommend WamBam to everyone who asks!
We had a small chain link. A new unsightly neighbor moved in behind us and with our very shallow back yard, we knew something had to be done. With my experience of constructing new wood privacy fencing and replacing many broken and rotten post, I began looking for steel post options. The in-experienced help from the chain lumber yards proved to be no help. There best option was to cover the wood post with a sleeve. I discovered Wam Bam by searching the internet and after several weeks of consideration, I ordered approximately 90 feet of Courious George and a gate. My existing fence was surrounded by utilities therefore we had to install in the exact place. We layed the fence out so none of the new post had to be installed where old posts were removed. In 1.5 days, my buddy (he is a hoss) and I pounded 14 post in by hand and installed the fence. One section fence was slightly slopped and the other section was stepped. Both installations went great! I watch most the videos online. These were well done and very helpful plus the printed instructions were very descriptive. WamBam was very helpful during the ordering stage. I was a little concerned (large dog) with the gates flexibility however they sent me an extra latch so I could secure the gate at a lower position. Worked perfectly. It was easier than expected in keeping the post level however pounding in the post was the most physically challenging. I would recommend the power pounder. One of the post was next to a large tree, we hit a large root (12 inch diameter). With persistence, we finally pounded through it. My neighbors around me have all complimented the outcome.
After pricing, reading, and studying different fencing we ordered the Nervous Nelly fence for our backyard about 3 months ago. When it arrived the pallet was broken and some boxes were open with broken product. When I called Wam Bam they were extremely helpful and apologetic. Within a few days, we had replacements for everything broken. When our Colorado weather finally cleared enough to get outside and begin installation we were surprised at how easy the process was. My husband had studied all the info on installation and it went very smooth. In three days we had our fence up and were very happy with the finished product. Next came the wind test. About a week later we experienced 70 MPH winds and I'm happy to say our fence looked just the same as it did the day we finished. We live in a small town and have had many friends and neighbors comment on how nice it looks and how quickly it went up. We were even able to take advantage of the referral $ when one of our neighbors ordered their fence. So glad we chose to go with Wam Bam. Great people and a great produt!
OMG the fence was finally finished two weeks ago! We think it looks awesome and we are extremely happy with the appearance! Everyone we know who has seen the fence loves the fence and we can 100% state we did it by ourselves. It was a huge project and I am willing to bet it is the largest fence ever done to enclose a residential backyard ordered from Wam Bam Fence Company. I can state we encountered every issue possible in trying to install the fence and all the gates. Between under ground obstructions, one post pounded into the top of an old previously used steel septic tank and running into a buried dead tree trunk root, and the slope/grading of the land we far exceeded every possible learning curve associated with installing our Wam Bam fence. This installation was delayed numerous times when we had to deal with rain, freezing cold temperatures and very high winds. All in all we dealt with each obstacle with determination to finish this fence no matter what problems occurred. We are thrilled we did it and everyone has admired the quality and appearance of the fence. This style of fence was perfect for us in order to contain our dogs while not obstructing our view of the lake from any location of our house from the inside/outside or from the first or second level of the house. I think the best advice I would give anyone who is considering installing this fence would be to carefully read the instructions, but realize not every situation is covered and you may have to improvise, have great patience, keep your focus on the completion/success of the finished fence, don't allow your frustration get the best of you and really appreciate the person (particularly your wife) who is assisting you! Despite a few quirks we would still rate the fence a five star excellent fence. Time will tell if the fence will be strong during windy stormy weather at the lake. Because it is aluminum the fence should withstand windy, rainy storms without damage. We like the fact of having low to no maintenance in regards to rust or corrosion with an aluminum fence as opposed to an iron fence. We have absolutely no regrets regarding the purchase and installation of this fence. We know it looks professionally installed, attractive and sturdy. We have no ambivalence that the fence will keep our pets within the confines of the fence safe. There are no sharp edges for our dogs to hurt themselves. The clearance under the fence in relation to the ground is minimal which will prohibit the chances of the dogs digging or squeezing underneath the fence and getting out. The fence is too high for them to jump over. Because we are in a rural area on a lake the fence will also act as a deterrent for deer, rabbits and foxes to enter into the enclosed fenced area. I currently have a top notch construction company crew at our house doing exterior and interior renovations and even they commented how well made and attractive the fence is. We will for many years look at our Wam Bam fence and admire it's beautiful aesthetic appearance as an addition to our lake home.
This fence is excellent. From initial order through final installation the quality of the product and ease of the installation were only surpassed by the excellence of WamBam's customer service. Thanks WamBam! (especially Denise :) )
We are absolutely thrilled with this fence and its company. We replaced a wooden fence, so no more staining and maintenance. We couldn't be happier with the customer service, the product, easy installation and the final result. We were shocked when the company actually contacted us to answer any questions we might possibly have. They were amazing. The fence is beautiful. We are completely satisfied and recommend this company and their products without reservation.
We swooped our fence, and even with that extra work installation was a breeze. It drastically improved the appearance of our yard and I couldn't be happier. Great customer service!
I have to admit, we were a tad bit skeptical of the Wam Bam way. But with the reviews so positive, and the savings around $3000 for our project, we HAD to give Wam Bam Fence a try. Iâ€™m so glad we did! In the end we have a beautiful fence and a super happy dog! First of all, read the directions first, it really did help. I was a little overwhelmed with the scope of the project but once we got moving it went incredibly smooth. The pipes do actually level themselves (my dad checked them all and was shocked every time they were almost perfectly level). The ones that were a little off, were easily fixed with the leveling donut. The only problem we had was that we had people actually pounding in the pipes and others measuring and laying out the next ones. I would suggest if you do this, just have the people pounding them in do a quick double check on the distance. A couple of ours got moved slightly and we had to make a few fixes later in the process. The Wam Bam staff was great at helping us with suggestions though and it wasnâ€™t hard to fix our little mistakes. The gas powered pounder worked great! We had quite a few posts to pound in and once the location was set it took less than 30 seconds to get them in, and we stopped every 6-10 inches to make sure it was staying level. It did go through small tree roots like they say, and we have two big trees in our yard. I really donâ€™t have any complaints with the fencing, the installation or the people we worked with. I would definitely use the product again and have already recommended it to friends! Thanks so much Wam Bam, Iâ€™ve been dreaming of a big yard for my dog for years and I finally have it and couldnâ€™t be happier!
We purchased this product to fence in our large front yard to keep our dogs from running into the street. It abutted a pre-existing white vinyl 3-rail horse fence, and we wanted it to blend in. The fence was easy to install, and looks wonderful. There were some mix-ups in one of the post shipments, and the company immediately rectified the situation. The customer service is fantastic, the fence itself looks awesome, and the dogs are safe. We'd highly recommend this product.
We purchased this product and installed it our self. It was very easy to do. The materials are very good quality and would give it a perfect 10 !!!!!!!!!! They were very informative and helpful with all our questions throughout the whole project. Great company to work with.
Wambam is the best fence I the market for quality, price, installation, and customer service. I installed fencing for over 2 years the old dig a hole, mix concrete, set post, and back fill way. Never again. I installed over 120 feet of fence in less the 20 hrs of labor. I do suggest renting the gas post driver from Wambam. The driver is both time, and back saving. The product quality and design is the best I have seen and I have installed a lot of vinyl fence. I drew out my plan but, with the best customer in the business you can just call with number of corners, length, and number of gates and they will walk you through the whole ordering process. Speaking of corners, their line, end, and corner post is all in one. Takes the guess work out and allows for changes that may have to be made or want to be made during installation. I can't say it enough. The quality of materials are the best. You get what you pay for. And with Wambam, I got the best.
I was fortunate enough to stumble upon WamBam while looking for a way to contain my enthusiastic 2yr old. Having put up some wood fences years ago, I was prepared for a long slog. Driving posts is no picnic. So when I stumbled across wambam, I wanted to believe. Iâ€™ve now put my fence up, and am absolutely amazed at how quickly things came together, how well thought out the product has been, how professional the results have been, and how helpful and friendly customer service was. If youâ€™re still digging holes to put in your posts, youâ€™re doing it wrong. Driving them with a pounder, aside from being easier, allowed me to drive them with far more precision. In fact, driving the posts went from being the most time-consuming part of the fence construction to the least. With straighter lines. The rest of the product has been similarly well-conceived. Iâ€™m very, very impressed. In addition, their customer service has been fantastic. I had a few questions regarding a few idiosyncrasies with my project, and received an amazing level of customer service. From suggestions, to spare parts, they made sure my problems were solved. I canâ€™t recommend these guys enough.
Purchased 2 Steady Freddy gates; installation was quick and easy with no holes to dig and cement to mix. The look and design adds elegance to any house. I'm looking forward to gates that should last forever. Once the rest of my cedar fence decays I will definitely buy the WamBam product. Thanks!
We purchased this fence in May of 2013 and we absolutely love it! We have a very large yard. It took 2 1/2 days for my husband and his father from start to finish. We have had so any people come up to us and ask where we purchased our fence because they love it so much. Thank you Wam Bam Fencing for making great quality product at affordable prices.
We love our Jiminy Picket! Prettiest fence in the neighborhood! Not to mention, an easy (& fast) installation. The gas powered picket pounder was a must for our 300 ft fence. As long as you have patience and a partner, you should have no trouble. And the staff at Wam Bam is phenomenal. Linda worked with me to be sure we were comfortable with the price, product and installation. Even helped when we returned an unused panel. All-in-all, a great experience!
I couldn't believe how fast the delivery was! The instructions were good and the installation of fence and gates went very well and better yet my wife now has her white picket fence that she has always wanted.
I did a lot of shopping, online and with installers. I quickly concluded that I did not want the traditional holes and concrete application, especially in this weather zone. That decision left a limited number of options and WamBam provided the complete diy package. The fact that I could get quality materials, complete instructions, telephone support, and the pounder all from one place, all designed to work together, was very important to me and I am persuaded buying the package instead of the parts saved me from a lot of problems. For what it is, a "u do it" fence kit, I would have to give it a 5. I could not find anything else that would compare favorably. There were challenges with the fence because of our dramatic grade drop. I absorbed Stephen's advice, took a lot of deep breaths, and moved slowly. We are very pleased with the result. Curious George covers those areas that are next to walkways and neighbors. We went to Jiminy Picket on part of the back and one side. This provides some circulation and view. I was very impressed with your product and service. The materials are clearly superior, instructions were spot on, and the tolerances for fitting everything together were just incredible. I made some mistakes, but was creative in covering and you have to get up really close to see them. I built it all by my lonesome and I am 70 years old.
This was the first time using this fence company for me. I am a landscape contractor in New York State. I found Wam Bam Fence Company on-line. Well, I was skeptical at first. This was a whole new concept for me from the traditional way my company has done fencing in the past. So, I watched all the videos, read as much info I could, to make sure I wanted to try this on a job that would have my name on it!! Well, I tried it!! The truck came , we unloaded boxes and got started. At first, we started slow. Got 2 complete sections up in 3 hours, using 3 people. It looked great!! Next day, had the concept down and went to town, got 12 complete sections done! Oh better tell you this job was 276 ft. of fencing with 2 single gates and 1 double gate. We used Nervous Nelly fencing which is a 5 ft. high flat top vinyl pool fencing. Now, our location was not ideal for fencing, what I mean is very little flat or level areas. The fence went up very quickly, I was pleased! We had some areas we needed to place the section of fence that were at a 45 degree angle and these were a challenge. With the Nervous Nelly Fence, the rails come pre-cut for your slats to slide in, but because of the uneven terrain, we had to enlarge every single hole for each and every slat on each of the 3 rails needed for this section of fence!! This was time consuming! My thoughts on this were either the company make the holes larger when making rails or leaving them out completely, so you would cut your own in this type of situation. Iâ€™m not sure of the correct solution on this but that was our only problem. I would use Wam Bam Fencing again in a heartbeat!!!!! I will never construct a fence again the traditional way, augering all the holes and having all the extra dirt to remove and all that concrete, never again for this contractor!!! Even the gates went well!! This job took us 4.5 days form unloading all the boxes to complete!!! Oh and cleanup, there is very very little!!!! When you complete that section of fence and move to next one, you are done!!! AWESOME!!!!! One VERY satisfied and glad I went out on a limb, contractor!!!! Laura Ullman All Green Landscaping
Excellent DIY Fence, Installed fence with double gates enclosure around by back yard and pool. After first section its just a rinse a repeat install. I would recommend a power stomper to get initial posts in with no fuss, but i had alot of posts. Great Fence!
Last month my wife and I bought a well kept 1920's vintage home in Cavalier, North Dakota. The only thing I didn't like about this home was the absence of a fence around the large back yard. I'm a retired general contractor and over the years, I have installed virtually every kind of fence. They were all back-breaking jobs - and the cleanup could take just as long as the installation! I was not looking forward to another fence project. I wanted a fence that looked nice, was appropriately styled for the house, and required little maintenance. Searching the internet for fencing ideas, I found Wambam fence and really thought it was too good to be true. I researched all I could about Wambam fence and was unable to find a single instance of anyone who was not happy with this fence. I downloaded the installation guide and read it a couple of times. Looked easy enough, so I did a layout in the backyard, transferred that to a drawing, made a parts list and placed an order. About a week later, my fence, and gas powered driver, was delivered. My brother helped drive the posts but I did all the installation. We are both in our 60's and we took a leisurely two days to drive 28 posts. I spent about 5 more days installing almost 200 feet of fence and 4 gates. All the vinyl parts and all the hardware are first class. Everything fit perfectly. No shortages and no surprises. There are a lot of vinyl fences in my neighborhood, but none of the other fences, or the gates, look nearly as nice as my Wambam Peeping Tom. I'm a very happy customer. Thank you for an excellent product.
I really do love my Steady Freddy Fence. We've had it for a few years now and it still looks great and offers us wonderful privacy. I thought I would have to clean it more often but really, I've never touched it with a hose and it's looking just as good as the day we bought it. It stood the test of the aftermath winds of Sandy, which was a pleasant surprise. A lot of fences and sheds went flying as the strong winds came through but our fence stood up beautifully to the storm. Our basketball net actually fell on the fence and there was surprisingly no damage to it. This might have been helped by the fact that the panel popped out of the post because we didn't centre the screw properly but I was pleased to see how well it withstood the net's weight. It's also easy to install. My husband did most of it and the odd time I helped. Be forewarned though; the post pounder fell on my head when it slipped out of my husband's hands - use caution and a hard hat! lol
Spent some time doing research on different fence products on the market and went with Steady Freddy Vinyl Fence cause of the unique architectural design of the vinyl posts and the ease of installation of the fence, no holes to dig and no big clean up of dirt after the post were pounded in. Had a lot of people stop and inquirer about the fence when we were putting it up,really liked the design of the vinyl posts. Had some product left over after our project was done and Stephen took it back and gave a refund no questions asked. Would highly recommend anyone looking at a vinyl fence give WamBam Fence some consideration.
I installed the Nervous Nelly over a year ago, and it has made it through one on the longest Wisconsin winters in 10 years without out any issues. I am not a professional but very handy, and the fence was very easy and stright forward to install. Customer service and the insturctional videos were very helpful. My best advice for any new installers would be to take your time. You get one chance at each post, if it is not straight you might have to cement the post. I constantly checked, leveled, and straightened all of my posts and had not issues. The finished product is flawless. I have reffered friends and neighbors to WamBam and would not think twice about doing it agian. The fence has been perfect for a two boxer two child family.
We are extremely happy with our vinyl fence. This company and their employees are ALL first rate. I wish other companies cared about their customers as much as WamBam does. Two thumbs up!!!
As the website says; "Don't expect this to be a 1 day job." But, the project is not complicated, and well explained in the instructions (reading them is imperative). I had hoped to enlist assistance with pounding the anchor poles but when I was not able to, I just did them myself. Pounding the poles was much easier than I thought it would be. We used 3 different products ( Peeping Tom privacy fence, and Jiminy Picket fence and gate) and they all linked together seamlessly. Well Done Product!
Took my time a tried to do everything right. On the first pipe anchor, the one right beside house, I had to order pipe with a flat bottom (attach to deck) and have extension welded to them (cut post and welded to extend). Foundation of house came out 18 inches, so I drilled holes and bolted in. Then filled hole with concrete to make sure it held. Took a while to get this done. Majority of work was done over Memorial Day weekend. Used a soaker hose on the lines. Pipe anchors went in pretty easy. Your design of the parts is right on. Like other projects, took longer this time than it would to do another. No damage to any of the parts in shipping. They are packaged well. Stepping of the panels looks great Got a load of dirt and filled in the voids. Grass is spreading and should cover all of the soil by the end on the month. Gates were the most challenging. We got them all in and they look great Did I make some mistakes? Sure did, but the advantage is, I am the only one that knows what they are. No one has had anything but compliments on the project. We kept the area clear of cardboard by loading it back into trailer as soon as we emptied a carton. Saved a lot of headaches. I appreciate all the assistance with the project and will be happy to discuss the process with anyone that has concerns.
We just finished installing my new fence. It looks GREAT! Installation was fairly simple, if you follow the instructions. The best part of the fence order was the instructions. They were direct and very easy to follow. Very clear! The little man in the picture instructions was very helpful! FINAL REVIEW: On a scale of 1-10, the fence and my experience would give it a top rating of 10+!
The gate was easy to assemble and install with just the help of my two teenagers. It's sturdy and looks fabulous with the fencing. A perfect enclosure for our puppy!
Great looking fence. Very easy to install. We were able to put install a 24 X 48 fence with gate to inclose my vegetable garden within 2 days. Not only does it add to the overall value of our property but it also protects my growing garden from unwanted visitors.
This product is A+. I just recently moved and put up 200 linear ft. of this fence in less than 3 full days. I was skeptical and a little overwhelmed when the delivery truck showed up, but once I got started it was smooth sailing. The gas pounder is a must! That would have been the hardest part, driving those anchors in by hand. The final product is as good as anything on the market, and the time and money saved is even better. I had gotten quotes well over double of what I paid for this and a little of my time. You cant beat this!! Wam Bam fencing also has some of the best customer service I have ever dealt with. They were helpful from before I ordered to even helping me with something after I was done. Again the product and the people behind this company are A+ and I would absolutely do business with them again and recommend them without a doubt.
We had planned on replacing our wood fence along the alley for a year. It gave us plenty of time for research ... and we chose Wam Bam! After installing the fence, I am confident we made the right choice. When I placed the order for the fence with all surface mount posts, Wam Bam called the next day to ensure that there wasn't a mistake and also to make sure their product was being used in a proper application. I used a rotary hammer drill to set anchors for the surface mount posts, then the whole family joined in the fun of sliding the pieces together. Seventy plus feet of fence ... tore down, hauled to the dump, and replaced by a new WAM BAM Steady Freddy vinyl fence, with a gate, and on a 9 inch concrete footer all in the same day and without any major arguments ... thanks Wam Bam!
Itâ€™s a nice looking fence and sturdy. It went in and very easy. I was able to do it myself. The average person with limited skills should be able to do this fence. Neighbors are very happy. Very proud of it. Harry C Rensselaer IN
I am extremely pleased with the Jiminy Picket fence/gate and ease of installation. From start to finish it took me about 7 hours by myself to install, pounding the posts was the toughest part (clay/rocks), yet was a fraction of the time to dig post holes. Thank you WamBam for a wonderful product and exceptional customer service from questions prior to ordering, follow up after order placement to be sure we had what we needed for install and for quick replacement of parts that were damaged during shipping. I have received many compliments as to the way the fence/gate looks and how sturdy it is. I'll be sure to recommend you to any friends/family looking for vinyl fencing.
Installation was much easier than digging a hole. I just installed the fence and love how it looks. Pounding the posts into the ground took some effort but the Springy Suzy was great. I am 51 years old and weigh 135 pounds. I got them in the ground. I amazed myself. The support from WamBam was great. I thought the directions were great as well.
The fence project went very well. I did most of the project myself (my wife was out of town the first weekend but was able to help me on saturday of the final weekend with the finishing touches). I only hit one underground obstacle (a root that was only 8 inches down that I had to chop out with an axe). I only made a couple of small mistakes and no one but me even notices them. I had to get a little creative in a few spots. The fence is very versatile, and I was able to figure out how to make it work to solve the problem areas I ran into. I almost called for advice a couple of times, but figured it out without needing to call.
Like other customers on this site, we did a lot of research before deciding to go with Wam Bam. Originally, we were going to build a redwood fence, but due to the insignificant cost difference, we decided to go with a maintenance free, vinyl product that would outlast redwood. We were able to finish 300 feet of Steady Freddy privacy fence in one weekend! Installing 40+ posts with the gas powered pounder was a breeze. Needless to say, the installation was MUCH easier than building a wood fence and the finished product looks top notch. There is a slight learning curve involved, but once you get the first few panels up, the install goes very quick. We've already gotten dozens of compliments from friends and neighbors.
We did a lot of homework before purchasing our fence. We also had an estimate for professional installation at around $4500.00.That didnâ€™t make me so happy, so in the end we spent about half that by going with WamBam and doing it ourselves. The instructions and web videos are great. Customer service is fantastic as the people are very knowledgeable and friendly; shipping was timely. The quality of the WamBam fence parts is better than the big box store fence parts. The fence was fun to install. No digging was perhaps the best part.
The gas pounder makes a real difference. We installed about 3 or 4 pipe anchors manually and decided to go with the gas pounder because we had about 40 left to install. I didn't need a work-out that bad! Went very smooth with gas pounder....ordered a 2nd job of about another 40 panels. Great Quality Product.
This product is exceptional quality The videos on line are great, so are the paper instructions. Linda answered all my questions & was very helpful. The anchors pipes are so much easier to install than digging holes & filling with concrete. I'm so glad i chose WamBam fence.
My husband and I love our new fence. It provides safety for our two dogs without "closing in" our backyard. It actually looks bigger! The fence was easy to install. We loved not having to dig and make a mess of the grass. Friends commented on how "natural" the fence looks, not at all like a post fence that was just installed with bare patches and torn up grass. The only problem we had was with the screws. We melted a few attaching the yellow doughnuts to the poles. (I guess we lack drilling skills.) Installing our fence was a positive experience for us and we would do it again in a minute!
My handyman found the ground to be very hard so we opted to rent the gas pounder. It worked very well. He has been in the business for 15 years and said that this fence is very good quality. I own a couple of properties and I am thinking of using WamBam for those as well. I am very happy with my fence.
My father in-law and I (mostly my father-in-law!) installed over 50 panels of this fence at my home. The vinyl is much thicker compared to what I could purchase at my local Lowes. I also liked that there were no brackets. Had a few troubles getting the automatic pounder to work properly but overall great experience. I would recommend. Overall very impresesd.
Ahhhh....where to begin? My husband and I first saw the Wam Bam fencing system on the DIY network on one of those home improvement shows which we love to watch. We always had the intention of installing a fence since we moved into this house a couple of years ago but did not want to pay thousands of dollars to have it installed. This system intrigued us so I did some more research on line. We knew we could save a lot of money doing it ourselves but thought there would be NO way this fence could stand up to the winters we get here in Ohio. We went as far as getting a quote but did not carry it any further at that time. So this October we FINALLY took the plunge. After deciding on what style of fencing and how much we needed I emailed your company. I received a speedy response from Denise with a lot of useful information. I especially liked the fact that she showed us how we could save some money if we changed up our runs a bit. We ordered our 200 feet of fence and off we went. Now we did have some issues getting the fencing delivered by NO fault of Wam Bam as they are at the mercy of the delivery company. The communication could not have been better as Linda stayed on top of things throughout the entire process. Her sense of humor was such a breath of fresh air! The fence arrived and we got to work that weekend. Only one post was damaged and was replaced promptly by Wam Bam. The hardest part was getting those posts into our hard, clay ground. But with a little muscle and help from Uncle Fred, things went smoothly. It took us about 4 weekends all together to fully complete the project but that is because my husband is OCD and everything had to be perfect. We did have some uneven ground on the one side of our yard so we decided to step the fence from the bottom which took some time to do. With the aid of a transit, the posts were all within a ¼ inch of one another and looks like a professional installed it. I cannot tell you how may compliments we received on the fence. Here comes the interesting part! ONE weekend after we completed the fence HURRICANE SANDY hit! We had over 24 hours of sustained winds of 50mph with gusts up to 70mph here in Avon, Ohio. The house was literally shaking! In between 12 hours of manually emptying the sump pump because we lost power, I took frequent peeks outside. I was afraid that there would be no fence left standing! With tears running down my face, I thought all that hard work on that fence had been lost. After the winds had finally died down and we got our generator delivered we were able to take a deep breath and go outside and assess the damage. THE FENCE WEATHERED THE STORM! I am now a firm believer in this product! Our neighborhood was hit hard. All the basements were flooded, siding ripped off houses, trees down all around but our fence is still in one piece! I want to thank Wam Bam and all the wonderful employees you have there running your company. It was really a pleasant experience from beginning to end! minus the storm!
The finish product is high quality and their customer service surpassed the big box stores by a long shot! This product allows you to dry fit the fence and easily adjust the level of the posts before securing the screws, which to me solves the hardest part about putting in a fence (making it strait and level). The ability to adjust each post height with the three prong anchor is the key to making this project an error free experience as long as you measure twice and drill once! Great product! Patrick
Love the fence! All my neighbors are envious and tell us how nice it looks. It's hard work, but my wife and I did it all by ourselves. And we couldn't be happier!!! Thanks!
Hurricane Sandy just went thru...70 mph winds. No issues. Just ordered a second larger project. Very easy to do. I've installed a number of fences the old way way with concrete over the years. After installing this fence, I won't be going back!
I installed 42 Panels of this fence in super hard Louisina clay. Read the instructions and get an air pounder would be my only two suggestions. Once we got the air pounder....this fence was fun to install. The really easy part was installing the panels.
I installed just over 450ft of this fence at my new house in just a couple weekends. I have some experience with fencing, as I did about 300 feet of wood stockade and vinyl privacy fencing at my last house. It took me a long time to complete and was a lot of digging. I wanted a fence that would go up easier and faster. At first I thought it wasn't any easier to install than actually digging out the holes, then I had to dig out a couple holes because I hit rocks <24" down. That's when I realized the system was way easier. Digging a post out would take 20-40 minutes while driving in a anchor only took me about 10 minutes. I also realized I made a mistake not getting the pneumatic post pounder from the start as my productivity dropped off with the "Springy Suzy" as I tired after about 10 anchors. I did 20 anchors the first weekend and 35 the second weekend. As a Licensed Professional Engineer (mechanical), I felt that the system is very well thought out and engineered. The parts are well designed, strong, high quality and they all fit together with no work (provided you keep the posts properly spaced and level). There were no missing or damage parts and the directions were easy to follow and very comprehensive. I've recommended your product to several people already, including friends who have to install a fence around their new pool.
I am pleased with the product that wambam has and their customer service is excellent (Denise and Tina) is beyond excellent! The product was easy to work with and looks fantastic. I have received many compliments from the neighbors.
i had three hundred and sixty feet run that I took down, old cider post and rail and installed Wambam post and rail. Did not have the perfect ground for this application, rocky and uneven. I had to do with what I had and eventually got it done. A few anchors did not go in as deep as recommended but I had no choice when you have a bolder the size of a car to contend with. In my case definitely not a one man installation but would go with Wambam again when I need fencing. Thanks Joe, Steve and staff who are all wonderful people which made the experience even better.
I installed almost 70 panels of this fence on two different projects. I ran into all kinds of problems. Rock under the ground etc. Fence panels themselvers were a breeze to install. The anchors are tough to get into the ground straight...go slow at first and re check level. There is a learning curve....but this is the only fence I would ever go with again for installation. Extremely helpful customer service!
Works well. Takes longer to read the instructions than to build the fence. Once you are thru learning curve it goes fast, specially with a helper. Fence looks good and I'm proud of the finished product.
Overall very impressed. It's time consuming to assemble the panels. Be careful when installing the pipe anchors because the donut only allows 1/2 adjustment to level. I'm very happy with the project.
We shopped for this fence at Lowes and Home Depot and would still be installing if purchased there...plus the quality is way better. It was not fun, but my wife and I actually enjoyed putting it up. 40 panels plus is a lot of fence! I brag about this fence to my neighbors, friends and contractor buddy!
Everything went very smoothly and my neighbor and I are happy with the product and result.
We have been nothing but impressed with the level of service and the product from this company.
Instructions were fantastic. This fence was a lot easier to install than I expected. I am extremely happy with the results and would recommend to everyone.
I installed 46 panels of this fence. Many of the anchors were in solid rock.Used core drill with air jack hammer. Worked out great! Would definitely will go this route again.
The gate jig was great, and I was able to install the gate without any help. I like the way the gate is leveled using the nuts on the hinges, allow for really fine precision.
It looks great and we are all very happy to have it up.... As for my first time putting in a fence this is a great way to do it. I could't imagine why anyone would want to do it another way....
A great product at a great price!..I did my homework too! 220' of fence + 2 gates in 10 hrs with 2 guys.
The easiest fence I ever put up. Two people, two days and done.
Great product. Easy installation. Excellent customer service. They stand behind the product and make sure you are happy. The fence has been up for a year and held up great against a least two severe wind storms. Being from Kansas I was a little nervous before buying, but was assured over the phone they would stand behind the product. Two nights ago we had a severe thunderstorm with high winds. The wind broke one of the sections top rails lose and it and the lattice landed in the yard. I just emailed WamBam hoping to buy just the Top Rail as a replacement part. They are sending me a Top Rail for just the cost of shipping. Again excellent customer service.
It is way better quality than the other fences we considered. We love it.
I am very happy with the results. Pounding these posts are much easier than digging post holes and mixing cement. These anchors provide a rock solid structure. This fence turned out nicer than I thought it would. It really looks good! All of the materials are excellent quality and worth the extra cost over the fencing available at the Big Box stores.
This fence installed easily and even survived a windstorm that caused power blackouts to 80% of our area. We used a vinyl covered wood post in concrete to give added stability to our gate, though.
I am very happy with the results. It is actually nicer than I thought it would be. Excellent quality and worth the extra cost.
The fence was installed over the weekend and looks beautiful. Our carpenter who installed it loved the process and is going to recommend it to everyone.
I am very happy with the caps.I think they set the fence off a little more.
It is a GREAT and BEAUTIFUL fence. We have spawned neighborhood fence envy.
We are very happy with the outcome ... looks great.Thanks for all your help ... the fence looks great!
The fencing is an AMAZING product!! I posted pics on my Facebook account already and have had friends call me for info. Also many of my neighbors have come to inspect and admire. Definitely a great decision!!
Just want to thank you and the rest of the staff for all your help. I can't remember a smoother purchase Steve was more interested in making sure I had the right product for my application and NOT pushing a sale and I appreciated that . I have to complete my installation but I am sure I will be recommending you product to everyone in my construction circles. I already have one sale pending!!!!
Thank you so much for all the help with everything. I will guarantee you that if any one wants a new fence around here, It will be from Wam Bam Fence company. I have had soooooooooooo many compliments on how nice the fence looks. It is FANTASTIC.
I just wanted to share with you and reiterate how pleased I am. I will certainly recommend your product to anyone that asks.
This vinyl fence is exactly what I wanted and my wife and I love it. It was easy to install and is very durable....even in high winds.
I found that if you read the instructions including Murphy's fence laws, which are very clear before beginning your fence it becomes a very easy installation. I wanted to be sure it was as easy as they said. Not only was it easy, but it replaces a chain link fence. The hardest thing I had to do was remore the old fence and posts buried in concrete.
I am very happy with it and all my neighbors have given me positive feedback.
I feel obligated to communicate the high degree of satisfaction I have experienced with WamBam Fence. Although I have installed some fences in my years, I have not installed a fence SYSTEM as well planned and executed as yours. I would highly recommend it to anyone considering a high quality fence system. As a recently retired global corporate leader I believe the WamBam Fence SYSTEM will become the international standard.
The installation was professional in appearance. The WamBam'ing was simple and easy. However it was not effortless. With some degree of diligence and thought, customization can occur on the fly and does not have to be written in stone tablets during design. Overall I am extremely impressed. I experienced a company whose ads "told it like it is". The hype that I considered brag was not. It was just plain fact. And this was quite refreshing.
Customer support a WamBam is awesome! Everyone LOVES this fence. The perfect entry into my garden!
WE REALLY LIKE THIS FENCE. Everything about it is nice. It's clean, relatively easy to assemble, quality parts and finishes, high quality packaging to reduce scratches, love the gate jigs, the heavy duty hinges and heavy duty screws, the anchor level line and plumbing donut, LOVE the self-tapping screws, the bracket adjustments (used heavily), ease of cutting (with the right blade), Big Bertha, installation instructions and pictures, etc. All these details made the entire job much easier and the fence look plumb and level. We really appreciate the quality of the fence we purchased and the fine customer service and terms WamBam provided. Bill and I try to buy the best we can afford and we know we made the right choice with this fencing system. Any design lacking the qualities listed above either would not have worked on our property or would have given us severe migraines and regrets.
It is a little more expensive than traditional fence, but in Oregon it rains A LOT so vinyl is a no brainer over wood. This went together very well, looks great, I did it all by myself alone over two weekends. I will order again to replace my side fence later with these panels as well. It is worth it they look great. A huge plus is these guys customer service, parts were dinged up during shipping, the shippers dropped it, and i broke a couple of pieces, i am an idiot sometimes, and they shipped replacements free. I would recommend this company and product very strongly.
Great quality. A superior concept that meets all claims. The only type of vinyl fence I will ever install again (WamBam)!
Great quality. A superior concept that meets all claims. The only type of vinyl fence I will ever install again (WamBam)!
Minutes to install 14 caps. Look great. I installed all 14 caps in under 10 minutes
Great Product. Not as jolting as you think. Really easy to use and only a slightly sore back
Great Product. Easy to install- first time. Great instructions. Customer service from Wam Bam is the best!
Overall good quality and easy to install but a little more expensive than one would expect.The fence arrived quickly and was packaged very well. The quality was very good and the installation is much easier than a standard pickett fence and traditional posts. If installing a gate actually buy the gate kit and don't try to make one yourself, you will need the extra support. A very good product that I would recommend to others, I just expected it to cost a little less.
Good value for the money. Needed replacement pickets and this was the best deal
Quality Product. I ordered this product not because the you don't have to dig post holes, but because they have the highest grade and best profile vinyl parts. Job looks fantastic and all the neighbors are raving.
Easy to Install. Fence and gate were installed in one day. It took two men.
All here, everything worked as advertised and it looks great!I wanted to try this product because of the innovative approach. I was NOT disapointed! Everything arrived OK and the instructions were great. Their website and news letter were done first rate and fun to read. This fence panel - along with the rest of their gates, posts, etc, were thought out as a full product line - not simply copied in the cheapest manner as some products are. You still need to think about how to lay it out, but if you make an error - you can actually back up and it all works out OK
this is very basic and exact, Works great just as I had it would. One thump and my posts were at the exact height
Easy to do. We put in 30 of these in one weekend. Call WamBam to borrow their pneumatic post whomper instead of using a manual one. Use a level to try and get them upright. (We got better with practice). A hand winch tied to obliging trees can straighten the really crooked ones. WamBam's guide tells you how to deal with slightly crooked ones so nobody can tell you weren't perfect. Our fence looks great and we aren't all that handy with tools. WamBam makes these to go on concrete too.
Nice Product!I purchased two of the Jiminy Picket Vinyl Gates. I only had one problem which was a simple fix. When I received my gates through UPS (very speedy shipping), I had a couple pieces that were cracked. So I called the company WamBam and they were very responsive and nice to talk to on the phone and shipped out the pieces right away to me in the mail without any hassle. As for the Jiminy Pickets, they were very easy to assemble with snug fitting and sturdy hardware. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a picket fence gate. Yes, I recommend this product.
Production QC Needs Improvement. The gate is beautiful and quite sturdy. The parts and manual are the areas can be improved. One thing I must mention is the customer service is super fantastic. Linda & Steven were great with the helps, so that swing my opinion to recommending this product.
Easy to hang. Gate was much easier to install than expected. Done by two home owners with a shovel (for digging the 6 inch deep trough for the jig), a tube of the provided glue, and a screw driver. Can be done as a double or single gate. Comes with a handy gate jig to get your pipes spaced correctly. If you have any trouble with the latch, consider adding a few washers under the plate to hold it farther away. Measure your spacing carefully if you do a double gate - screw to jigs together to get the right length.
This product has Excelent,is of very goog quality at a good price. filled all my expectations
Great hardware, sturdy gate!This gate comes with very good quality stainless steel hardware. It did not take me too long to assemble, and the vinyl is good quality. I recommend this product
Great product! Solid, well made parts.,The product is very well made. Unlike some other vinyl fences, where the panels are attached by flimsy brackets, the WamBam fence holds the panels using the thick, vinyl posts. Mine has already stood up to 50 mph wind gusts and heavy rain. Installing the metal posts in the ground (clay with some rocks) was easy, using a small post pounder, but you do have to check often that they are straight because they will not move once installed. I had never built a fence before but the instructions on line were great and the materials were easy to work with. I also called the company for additional advice a couple times and received great service.
Easy and looks good, Can be installed by anyone with opposable thumbs. No skills needed. (Use a rag to wipe off excess glue). Share this review:
First of all, I only put up 2 separate small sections. Both are one section of peeping tom fence and a peeping tom gate attached,6 large anchors and 6 posts. I live on the Oregon coast so I was concerned how well wam bam would hold up against strong winds that we have here. I have to admit that I am somewhat impressed so far. The installation procedures were very easy to follow. The hardest part for me was getting the anchors pounded in level. The completed fence looks very nice and compliments our house. We have received good commits from our neighbors. I would recommend wam bam fence to anyone thinking about putting up fencing! Jim
