WamBam’s 2019 Give Back Campaign!

As part of our annual “Give Back” Campaign, we here at WamBam decided to show our holiday spirit with donations to Urban Ministry Center here in our city of Charlotte, NC. The Urban Ministry Center has been providing services to Charlotte’s homeless population for over 35 years! These services include daily hot meals, laundry, shower facilities, and even assistance in creating valid IDs! Of course they are always in need of basic supplies and funds to help support their outreach, and we were happy that we could play some small part in their cause this holiday season! Throughout the month of December, our employees donated both items and money from their own pockets, which WamBam then matched.

The last few years have been years of fantastic growth and good fortune here at WamBam. We’re very proud of every member of our WamBam Family, who have not only made this kind of growth a reality, but who have also been so willing to pay it forward to others in their community!

“A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.”

– Steve Maraboli

We took all of our donations and loaded them into fence boxes before bringing them to UMC!

Testimony: “An Insidious Screening of Hideousness”

We recently received a testimony with photos from one of our creative and distinguished customers, named Andy. He explained that he wanted to hide his trash can, wood pile and recycling bin. The challenge was that the front of his house is really the back of the house; the back of the house faces the street. In Andy’s words, “Weird, huh?” Since the area of concern was visible to people driving and walking by, he needed something that would not only do the job, but look good doing it. According to Andy, he wanted something that wouldn’t be a “visual meh.” So, he turned to WamBam.

Andy decided to fence his garbage in, calling it “…an insidious screening of hideousness!” He started with a fairly blank slate. He did however discover a hidden concrete walkway as he was excavating. As with many installation projects, he was surprised at the discovery, but was not deterred. He said it “Required some carnival style ring-the-bell strikes with a sledge and voila-they were reduced to manageable rubble.” After marking the underground utilities, he was ready to go.

Next, he laid out his site, based it in and pounded the posts. He followed with pavers and a tumbled bluestone border and finished with the fence, gate and bluestone steppers. He got the creative idea to cut the WamBam 6’ Peeping Tom Vinyl Fence down to 4’. This allowed him to cover what he needed to, while still utilizing the window in the area.

Andy’s customization really showcases the creativity that can go into installing do-it-yourself fencing! He ended his letter with, “We love it, neighbors love it and no more gazing at my garbage!” This is why we at WamBam do what we do. The pleasure and pride that our customer’s experience after completing a project themselves is what drives us to keep coming out with innovative ideas and quality products.

WamBam Fence, Inc. Ranks in the Top Third with Three-Year Sales Growth of 265%

Charlotte, N.C., August 15, 2019 — Inc. Magazine recently ranked WamBam Fence, Inc. in the top third of their list of America’s fastest growing companies. Landing at 1,562 out of 5,000 companies, WamBam Fence, Inc. is the designer, manufacturer, and distributor of an innovative, no-dig system for vinyl and aluminum fence along with other outdoor products. The company has both headquarters and warehouse operations, as well as 18 employees, in the Charlotte area.

“Our incredible employees go above and beyond to serve our growing customer base, day-in and day-out,” said Denise Shields, president and co-founder, WamBam Fence, Inc. “Without their year-round dedication to do-it-yourself homeowners, we couldn’t deliver ‘the only fence that’s fun to install.’ From creative ideas that help us serve customers, to exceptional teamwork in our office and warehouse, our entire team is focused on delivering the best outdoor product to homeowners.”

WamBam Fence designs and delivers professional grade permanent fences that do not require digging holes, pouring concrete, or additional painting and maintenance. Created for the do-it-yourself market, WamBam Fence ships directly to homeowners across the country.

After many calls for a simpler fence that could be removed and reinstalled as necessary, the company launched a new line under the Zippity Outdoor Products brand in 2016. Zippity offers a simpler version of the no-dig concept for fencing and other outdoor products. Now homeowners can easily install outdoor privacy screens, mailboxes, and both permanent and semi-permanent fences without digging holes and mixing concrete (and without frustration!)

Homeowners can purchase Zippity Outdoor Products through homedepot.com, amazon.com, wayfair.com, and zippity-outdoor.com—no DIY experience necessary! The flagship WamBam Fence line is sold exclusively through wambamfence.com.
