And The Winners of the 2018 WamBam Fence Photo Contest Are…

The dust has settled on the 2018 photo contest, and it was our biggest contest to date! We had more entries than ever this year, and for good reason; we had more people than ever who had beautiful fences to be proud of. We saw some of the best-looking and creative entries ever in this year’s contest! Last week we posted the 25 finalists to our Facebook page and were blown away by how quickly people came out to vote for their favorite entries! The competition was fierce for the first day or two, but by day three we had a handful of entries that were standing above the rest, leaving us with two distinct categories: the top five and everyone else. The top five battled it out for the rest of the contest, but every contest has to come to an end, and this Monday our contest did just that. And so by popular vote, here are the winning entries for the 2018 WamBam Photo Contest! If you want to see all the entries we had this year, you can find the whole album here.

1st Place: Brian Duscher

No photo description available.

Brian and his wife Dana dreamed of having the perfect fence for their doggy daycare. A combination of Jiminy Picket and Steady Freddy fences gave them just the look they wanted, and their customers love it too!

2nd Place: Lila Robinson

Lila needed a safe outdoor play area for her furry little friend. The Sturbridge Fence helped give her the perfect, stylish enclosure she was looking for!

3rd Place: Al Horvath

Al just needed a good privacy fence for his yard, and a lot of it! 260 feet of Steady Freddy Fence later and he’s got the perfect enclosure for his yard. Now he’s even getting envious glares from the neighbors!

Well that’s a wrap! Thank you to everyone who participated in 2018’s contest, either by entering or by voting. Here’s to an even better 2019!

Doggie Daycare Fencing

Doggie Daycares: A Rapidly Growing Industry

WamBam Fence has become a popular choice for doggie daycare fencing in this rapidly growing industry. WamBam Fence offers a unique and affordable surface mounted fence solution which makes it appealing to install on a concrete surface, both indoors and out. Vinyl is also a great material choice for doggie daycare fencing as it’s non-toxic, easy to clean and doesn’t show scratches as easily as other materials.

The Search for Doggie Daycare Fencing is Over

Brian and Dana Duscher searched a long time for a suitable fence for their dog spa business. When they came across WamBam Fence, they knew they had found a doggie daycare fencing fit. After several renditions of sketches and many design changes, Dana’s Dog Spa and Boarding is open for business. Round of ‘apaws’ for The Duscher’s creative efforts!

Customers Say it Best

Brian had this to say about his experience (some light editing has been done for readability):

“Customer service is above and beyond what I would have ever expected. From the first phone call to the last email they have been there supporting my project. Can’t say enough about the service. Now for the product, how do you say or express something that fit so perfect for the project? I dealt with several other companies tying to get this project designed and going. Wambam and Fezan have been amazing to work with and trust. This was a big design nightmare and struggle but after talking with Fezan several times, thinking he was going to get tired of me real soon , he was able to guide me in the right direction. My wife had something to do with a lot of the talk, she had new ideas (of course she did). Well after the struggles the product was shipped –  85 boxes! It showed up and we were off and running. The outside fencing went in like a dream, it looks amazing and was easy to follow. It actually taught me something and as cold as it was it was a joy to install. Then came the interior project, thinking this was going to be a nightmare and a struggle that I would never forget, it actually turned out to be quite an easy job once I figured out the measurements and the cuts. I have never worked with this kind of product before but the items the come with the product work awesomely, and the level adjusters make Easy work of the project. I am happy to say I was able to do the whole project in less than a month even with errors and a few hiccups from some of the product. Fezan was quick to help and to send out what ever was needed or replace what might have been wrong. The service I received kept me comfortable and confident that the investment was more than worth it. Dana’s Dog Spa is now Dana’s Dog Spa and Boarding thanks to an amazing company and superb product. I will be buying in the future. Again I can’t say enough about the product and service we received.“

Our New Home

WamBamOfficeSign-low res

With growth comes exiting changes. Earlier this year we made a big move into new office and warehouse space located in Charlotte NC.

Due to some unforeseen issues with our current 3PL, we had to move over the course of a weekend. We got the keys on Friday, moved dozens of truckloads of product on Saturday and Sunday, and started shipping from our new facility the following Monday. We were just glad it was February and not May because our inventory levels were lower!

Our first delivery:

By Monday things weren’t exactly organized to our usual standards, but we at least were able to fulfill orders from our new facility.

Progress was made over the weekend

Family and friends gathered to help out on the weekend by bringing Sunday dinner.

Despite being an exhausting weekend and week, we all survived to tell the tale. For a while a few staff members were working off make shift tables while some office renovations were completed.

A Sad Day

2

We are saddened by the news that our dear friend and business partner Clever Joe has passed away. Joe was the innovator of the no-dig fence concept that WamBam utilizes today. Because of Joe and his clever ideas, thousands upon thousands of hours have been saved installing fence by driving a pipe deep into the ground as opposed to digging holes and pouring cement footings.

We had the privilege of spending time with Joe over the years and always enjoyed our interactions with him. He was more than just a business partner; Joe was a friend. Despite his battles with illness over the past several years, he was always smiling and always optimistic. We will forever remember Joe for his innovation and passion and zest for life. He was a real trailblazer, whether it was creating solar powered ovens for the Cubans or bicycling across the continent. He was a true maverick.

The reality is that without Joe and his ideas, WamBam would more than likely not exist. We will always remember his contribution to fencing, to our business and to our personal lives. Our mascot Clever Joe was inspired by Joe. He got a kick out of the caricatures of himself that are sprinkled through our website, marketing materials, and office. It’s fitting that Clever Joe the mascot will live on to honor his memory.

Our thoughts are with Joe’s wife and two children as we all grieve his loss. Joe, you will be missed by many.
