Like my other areas of WamBam Fence I find these products an incredible value for the money. The quality and ease of installation were perfect for my needs. Thank you!
Here’s some pictures from the 3 WamBam Fences that I have installed in the last year or so. Thank you WamBam!
I am truly pleased with this fence. I found it easy to install myself and I have received many compliments.
I ordered 18 boxes of this fencing and installed it in a weekend; without major tools. These products and their customer service are top notch. I look forward to using them for my future projects too.
We just moved into our first new home. My wife and I always used to have to stand in the snow in the backyard to monitor our labradoodle. Without a fence he could be… unpredictable. We decided a fence was the way to go for more reasons than this. In 2 weekends with my in-laws help we had over 300 linear feet of fencing completed. This fence adds a phenomenal appearance and value to my property. My dog can now roam in the back freely, and we can have peace of mind. Our future backyard oasis and garden will be protected, and many of our neighbors have complimented the fence. Thanks WAMBAM. I’m glad I didn’t have to do all that digging…
We had a bad experience with other fence company, waiting 3 months with them bailing on the last second. In comes Wambam and Christie Webster to save the day! Not only did I get in touch with someone that same-day, they helped get is everything we needed and the order was put in that day. It shipped the next day. With me being deployed in the Army they came through huge and helped by wife out. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Thanks Christie Webster! Our dog Otis loves it as well!
Our HOA is very picky. Christie was helpful in suppling pictures and links for them to review. The fence looks great!
Just finished my fence project with the steady Fredy Vinyl fence. We are so happy with the results. Our neighbors are impressed too. Installation was simple with the easy to follow instructions. The hardest part as pounding the post anchors into the ground. After that the fence easily comes together like Lego pieces. The fence is very sturdy and will surely withstand the elements. We saved on this project by doing it ourselves.
Great Product! I'm glad I went with WamBam Fence it was easy to install and very professional people to do business with had a few damaged items from the shipping and they replaced the damaged items ASAP and it didn't slow down my install. Thanks for all the help
I had to replace some old fencing and needed a match to a picket fence. I looked at every local and Big Box store. No luck, so I hit the internet. I happened upon WamBam and found exactly the fence I wanted. With some trepidation, I informed my contractor. He contacted the company and said they are based in North Carolina and have a lot of customers and seem legit. Taking it on faith, I sent off a lot of money, hoping for the best. Sometimes the Universe smiles upon you. The fencing is gorgeous, and the Customer Service is real, prompt and helpful (one of the best parts about the company). They are right there by telephone and email and hold your hand through any problem. The common carrier (not WamBam) knocked around several of the boxes. Customer Service had new parts shipped immediately and delivery FedEx to my door. Thank you Ma’am!! I recommend this company without reservation of any kind.
Thank you Wam Bam for a great product and Thank you Robert for the wonderful customer service!! We have a beautiful fence! Things went very well for us as we installed our fence. There is a little learning curve, but after measuring a few times and we were confident our posts were in the correct location we started installing posts and panels and the fence went up beautifully. We are happy we ordered the panels pre assembled, it saved us a lot of time! We also used the gas powered post pounder and highly recommend it. We did encounter some roots and used a drill with a spade bit and WamBam the post went right in! We also installed a single gate and a double gate without a problem. Your Murphy's Aluminum Fence Laws had many helpful suggestions. The jig for placing the brackets on the post worked very well. We also used 1 bottom rail from a panel with a bracket taped to each end to space out the posts. Be sure to place the "Donut" on the post before you pound it in!! The post will mushroom at the top after pounding ...we had to file the post top down on a couple posts and made sure the donut was on before pounding. We have been getting rave reviews on our fence "Beautiful" and "Classy" are just a couple of the compliments we have gotten! We would recommend WamBam Fence, wonderful product and wonderful people to work with!!
The WamBam fencing purchase and installation was an extremely good experience from start to finish. Their customer service and follow-up is unmatched. The product is high quality and the patented installation process is easily done with 1-2 people. Not having to use concrete for post installation saves not only time, but $ in potential labor costs. Instructions were clear and easy to understand. I would highly recommend WamBam products for your next fencing project.
This fencing and the matching gates were easy to assemble and install. I love the way it has transformed my pool and patio area!
My wife has many projects for me to finish since I retired in June. After a pool was built for the use of the grandkids- she decide that raising chickens would be educational and fresh eggs would be secondary. Chickens and a pool do not go well together so WamBam Fencing came to the rescue. Not only does the fence really accentuates the pool and property - it keeps the chickens and “what they are known for” away from the barefooted grandkids!
It’s very easy, once you get the hang of it. (Need to do a section at a time and line up the bottom rail to the next yellow post guide!) Pro tip- start at the lowest part of the project if you have to deal with a grade change. Use a Diablo Steel circular saw blade to cut the posts and rails if needed. The surface mounts are easy, as long as you drill straight and make sure the anchors will fit through the pre drilled holes. Mine needed to be drilled bigger than the 3/8th suggested anchors. If you run into tree roots, I did- use an 1 + 1/4 paddle bit. Line up the plastic guide and pre drill. Delivery- don’t worry if the boxes are a bit banged up on arrival, the material is packed very well. Customer service is a wonderful tool! Use them to figure out what you need and how to best get it too you.
My project was and is unique, it's an indoor project, for a self-serve dog wash shop. The shop is divided into 4 wash areas and fun zone area. I used 5 gates. Really wonderful. Easy to install in you have the proper equipment. I used the steel post mounted on heavy duty kitchen tile and concrete floor. I chose white because I wanted to reflect the cleanliness of the place and it worked! The staff and the sales agent helped me deciding what i needed to buy, they actually saved me some money. Delivery was simple, no delays, and right in front of my shop backdoor.
WamBam fence was just what I was looking for. I had received a quote to do a picket fence the traditional way and WOW that was A LOT! I had contemplated in the past with doing a fence back several years ago and I ran across WamBam, so I remembered them for when it came time to do it. I had the sketch from the contractor that came out to give me my first quote and used that to send to WamBam. Christie at WamBam was the one that contacted me from start to finish. She was great and helped me out A LOT. The ordering and shipping was awesome, I was lucky enough that the freight company had a powered lift gate and pallet jack, so they were able to set in my garage until I could tackle to project......We did the sloped look because of our yard, but we also had some trouble with getting the pipe and pipe stabilizers in the exact place and level so when we would put the posts covers on it sighted straight down the line and straight across the tops. We also had to cut many angles and customize some things too, but overall, it turned out great! I had the help from my father-in-law who was a custom home builder for 35+ years, so everything must sight straight and look good! The gas pounder is awesome, we did about 260 sq. ft. so it was a must. We did it over Memorial Day weekend/week, so it was about 5 days to complete…. Since we’ve had it complete, we have had many days with gusty winds, and it has held up perfect…. We have received many compliments from family, friends and neighbors on how great it looks with our house. Our 3 dogs are still getting use to it, while our almost 3yr old has the gates figured out already lol
I’m pretty proud of myself doing this fence alone with no help but I was about an inch or so off on one post. I guess nobody's perfect lol. The tan fence was what I put up two years ago and the white is what I just did. The white fence isn't even level or screwed in yet but still looks great and people love it. The gate replaces an old wooden gate that barely worked so this was a big upgrade for us!
I replaced an existing WamBam product (Plain Jane) using existing poles (because they are in concrete) then converted to 6ft columns and the Curious George fence. Every thing worked out great!
Fence system works great and looks great. Customer service is very responsive and helpful. One caution, we have very rocky soil in our area making it nearly impossible to drive the stakes in straight enough even considering the adjustment system built into the fence posts. I finally gave up and ended up digging holes and cementing the stakes in. I couldn't drive straight down without being stopped by a big rock, even with my 10 lb. sledge hammer and their very sturdy stakes. This is no fault of the fence system, just my misjudgment in thinking I could drive a straight stake into our exceptionally rocky soil. If you have normal soil it will probably work great for you. The adjustment system works very will, giving you a couple inches of adjustment capability to make a slightly angled stake become a perfectly leveled (straight up and down) post. Once the posts are in, the assembly in pretty straightforward. I had a couple lengths that I had to cut shorter because my overall fence length was not a multiple of 6 feet, but that was easy to do. The fencing materials are good quality. They fit together as they're supposed to. We're very pleased with the quality and appearance of our installed fence.
Install overall went well. The information available for when "things go wrong" was also incredibly helpful (especially for a crooked post). I wish I had had an impact driver initially to drill into the steel (Milwaukee drill wasn't enough) and had a higher quality string for the fence line. I also had a hard time telling where on the anchor posts to line up the horizontal board when spacing out the posts- a clearer photo would have been helpful. All in all we got the fence built. Thank you Christie for all your help!
I highly recommend this fence. Excellent product and easy step by step instructions. I used the surface mounts on the retaining wall caps and it is very sturdy. Easy to clean and looks professionally done without the high cost.

Put up 500 feet to keep dogs in. Looks sharp- always getting compliments from my neighbors!
Just a note to say "THANKS!" The product is incredible, quality is unmatched, engineering and design are perfect! We love our WamBam fence!!
As other reviews mentioned, the customer service was excellent. I took solid advantage of this by having my fence layout planned by WamBam, and then quite a while later placed the order. I also managed to make a couple goofs during installation of the gate because mistakes happen and was sent a paint pen to fix it up. I even had a couple parts left over after my plans changed, which i was able to return with no problem. Couldn't ask for anything more. The fence installation was also pretty smooth. I created two fence sections, one with a single gate, where I created a stepped-fence look. I believe I could have done a racked fence but preferred the step. The other side had a double gate and a strange grade where I tied the fence panel end to a tree, but it also came out looking nice, and the double gate measurements were spot-on using the instructions. I was very concerned going in about rocks! Having recently dug the footings for a deck to 48" in my rocky New England soil, I was pretty pessimistic about the pipes going in. Maybe I got lucky, but there were no surprise rocks. Much easier than expected. The manufacturing of the gate and panels was great, no strange off-measurement pieces and went together no problem, and the panel brackets and swivel brackets make the install very forgiving and easily modified. Very Pleased.
We love our WamBam fence! My wife and I installed about 300ft of the Plain Jane vinyl fence, along with a double gate, all in one weekend. We couldn’t believe how quickly it all came together. Honestly the most difficult and time consuming part for us was setting up our string line and making sure all our post were going in line. The manual labor portion of our project could not have gone easier. WamBam was great to work with throughout the entire process. They were never pushy, but always there to help. I wish I could give them more then 5 stars! If you’re thinking about getting a WamBam fence, we highly recommend them!
Our order came with no problem. We put the fence up around our yard and it is beautiful! Our 5-month-old Black German Shepherd loves it! He can run and play and no worries for us. He can have all kinds of play dates. It was easy to assemble and looks great. As one neighbor said, it's like a Lego building set.
I was looking for a no-dig fence that could be easily installed by myself and discovered Wambam. The online ordering was easy with the very handy and useful tool - the 'Fence Planner' on the WamBam's Website which lets you draw your fence lines on the online map of your property and automatically calculates all necessary products for your fence project. You can then either use the results as a free quote for your fence or place your order using the results as the needed items are automatically transferred into your shopping cart. You can also sign up for the WamBam survey list and receive 25% off any one product on the WamBam website. For example, a 4 foot Jiminy Picket Vinyl Gate costs $310. After 25% off, it only costs you $232.50, your saving is $77.50. For the fence installation, a gas powered pounder is recommended as it really makes installing the fence anchors a lot easier and faster. I installed my fence in the front yard. It is about 95-foot long, has 15 posts, 13 fence panels, and one gate. I finished the whole project within 2 days on my own. It was really an easy DIY project if you were a DIYer. I am really happy with the finished fence as it looks great, even the neighbors love it and many of them are interested in getting one, too. I recommend WamBam to them without hesitation. Thanks WamBam!
This spring we had a new inground pool installed and we’re looking for a fence to put around it. We knew we wanted a white vinyl so after a lot of walking around, I stumbled across WamBam. As a contractor, I spent a lot of time looking at their installation instructions and the quality of their product. We love the look and design of their many fences. Ended up choosing this traditional look for around our pool. The installation was incredibly simple especially since no extra brackets are needed for the rails. Everything is included with each package. The posts are incredibly sturdy with the way that they are designed As opposed to other fences we just have a hollow vinyl fence post. Customer service was superb and even sent me a few extra screws that I needed to complete my project for free. Highly recommend
I have built many fences in my time. None have been as easy as this one! The system is designed to be easy and error-proof. The fence looks great and is very durable. The customer service was exceptional and right on the spot to help along the way, from questions before ordering to help with issues and questions during the installation to ensuring all was exceptional at the end. Overall, I would recommend this product to anyone needing a fence!
From start to finish this was a great project! Robert from WamBam helped me select the amount of materials and hardware needed. Shipping was prompt and I had received everything within about a week. The install was super easy and only took about three days to do it all. Instructions are straightforward and easy to follow. Murphys vinyl fence laws had some helpful tips. Highly recommend! My neighbors were surprised at how quickly I finished it the fence and jealous of how great it looks!
We had never built a fence before but after reading reviews we placed an order. With some careful and detailed planning and site prep, we were ready to install. Our posts went in easy and I have to say the spacing method of using a post made a measuring tape unnecessary. We were able to the the posts installed in a few hours so that we could complete the rest of the 80 feet of fence line in a weekend. Also - the consultant we worked with was fabulous! He sent us an extra part that we needed after our scope changed ever so slightly. Would totally recommend this fence!
The fence went together almost as planned. I had to move the post on the side with the gate because "all the plumbing" for the pool runs at that spot. Just want to give a big Thanks to WamBam!
The project was to place a fence and gate around our basement egress windows to make our backyard a safe play area for our grandchildren. The installation was done in one afternoon! The instructions and help videos gave us confidence to do the installation ourselves. The peace of mind this new fence provides was well worth the investment.
I purchased this fence through HomeDepot.com. In my yard I have a retainer wall about 12ft high separating the grassy steep hill slope and my house. Because of certain NYC laws, i am unable to flatten this hill. I decided to buy this fence because it was a simple low-cost DIY solution to a problem. Preventing my little ones from falling off the wall while playing in the yard. Pros: - The materials are high quality - the fencing instructions are easy to follow - product does work as instructed and is pretty sturdy Cons: - Only good if you have a flat or mild sloping land. This warning in the instructions should be the first thing you see on the products website "WARNING! If your yard has a severe slope or an elevation change greater than approximately 3” to 4” over one panel of fence, you will not be able to install this fence. Your post will not be long enough to accommodate this slope." I can still work with this fence but it's more of a slanted look and not staggered as in the instructions. It still gets the job done although it's not as leveled as it should be. - Requires 2 people for installation to make it easier on yourself especially when it comes to leveling the pole correctly. - Should offer longer pole options for deeper slopes and more installation guides/videos for such situations. Overall, its 2 stars because of my personal situation. Otherwise, it is a great product with quality materials. It is not for everyone but if you have a nice piece of flat land or even a little slope, then i would get this product. Cheaper than having someone install a fence. <br> Manufacturer Response: Thank you for your honest feedback. While the Nantucket fence is a great fence, manufacturing constraints limit how much we can design it to rack or length of post we can offer for stepping. We'll also consider your feedback during the next round of install guide revisions. Thank you for your purchase!
We love our Plain Jane WamBam fence! We had over 330 linear feet to install with 78 boxes worth of fencing material. We installed it successfully using the gas pounder over a 2-day span. The fence looks great and we are always getting compliments on it. I'm so glad a neighbor told us about WamBam DIY fencing system. We probably saved over $5K doing this project ourselves. The only con is that they did not provide enough long screws but we made it work.
I had never built a fence, but read a lot of reviews and it seemed WamBam fence was a perfect solution for the privacy fence that we wanted to build behind our garage. Our sales consultant, Christie Webster was very helpful along the way, offering ideas to save some money on the project and by arranging to get some extra parts that we needed after getting underway with the fence job. We found that the fence was very easy to install and it looks great on our property. The customer service and the product are both 5 star! Thank you Christie and Wam-Bam fence!!
I installed this fence 3 years ago. It has survived many blizzards and some hail, as well as kicks from various wildlife (deer, bunnies, toddlers etc) quite well.
We love our WamBam fence! Jason Duffy was especially amazing at helping us figure out all the materials & quantity we needed. I felt very overwhelmed about the project until I spoke with him. He is great and so helpful! Highly recommend both working with Jason and WamBam!
This was my first time installing a fence. We chose WamBam after much research. The staff and service is second to none. They were amazing from order to completion and very patient with me in the process. The products delivered timely and we were very impressed with the quality. It was not easy as we have absolutely no level ground and many obstacles. The install videos and instructions were very helpful. Now it is all worth it. Great company. Great service. Great products.
We are absolutely in love with our new fence! Product is top notch!
When looking for a fence that was both sturdy and aesthetically pleasing for a decent price, I found this website. I made the order online but ended up calling the next day to talk with someone to make sure I ordered all necessary pieces. They lady on the phone was actually very helpful and helped me to figure out what exactly I needed based on the size of my yard. Installation was also fairly simple due to the convenient design. The freight carrier that was used was also very professional with flexible delivery times.
My husband and I purchased this fence for our new house to contain our dogs. It was very easy to install, sturdy and beautiful. We used a post ponder and the posts went in the ground quickly. Customer Service has been fantastic and delivery was fast! We will surely recommend this fence to our friends.
We have put up several “traditional“ fences. Wambam was so much easier! We were worried about it withstanding our strong winds but it’s held up great to 40MPH storms. Our neighbors also have stopped by to compliment us on our fence as we were putting it up. We highly recommend WamBam fencing. 5 Stars
Really, really super happy with our Curious George Vinyl Fencing and Cap'n Jack Post Caps! This install required that the posts be anchored atop a mow strip, leaving very little room for error. The Vinyl Surface Mounts were perfect for anchoring the posts, assembly was fast, and instructions were helpful and easy to follow. Like the name says, "WamBam" and done! We love the way it looks, and are happy to share our experience.
One year later and I am still glad I went with Wambam. My teenage sons and I installed over 300 linear feet of Steady Freddy with a double gate last spring. I purchased a used gas pounder locally and would highly recommend it. Because we have an inground pool we took out the falling down wood fence and installed the new fence in sections over 3 weekends and once we got a system going it was smooth and relatively easy compared to a traditional fence (which I have done). The fence still looks great and I get lots of compliments. The customer service I received from Jenna Simons was stellar and appreciated. My only complaint and thus the 3 stars is the double gate. For the cost of the gates I expected them to be a little more ridged. I bought and used the dual core anchors, and the metal pipe anchor stabilizers on both sides of the gate. Neither gate is on an end post. They both have at least one section of fence and therefore a secondary post they are attached to. I put extra screws in to secure the vinyl post sleeve to the dual core anchors to prevent them from twisting on the anchors. In the center where the gates meet and latch they are as close together as possible and one gate is held in place by a drop rod into a concrete driveway but still, when the wind picks up the gates flex enough that the one that doesn't have a drop rod will slip the latch and blow open in the wrong direction which I fear is hard on the hinges. I live in the Detroit area which is not a hot bed for hurricanes or tornados and it does not take that much wind to cause it to happen. If the gates were slightly stiffer or the post side of the latch had a knob at the end so it couldn't slip out of the latch itself then it would be fine. To prevent this issue I resorted to a cinder block in front of were the gates meet as a stop over the winter until I could address it in the warmer weather. The only recourse I can come up that doesn't require me to redesign the gates, or locate a different replacement latch that might not use the same hole pattern leaving ugly uncovered holes at face height, or do custom metal work to the existing latch, is to put a drop rod on the active gate so they both have one. The issue with that is if the drop rods are both down in case of wind, the gates are effectively locked from one side plus the shipping on a drop rod is almost half the cost. Please fix your gate design or your latch design. Again, love the fence. Would buy the gates again but I would absolutely not use the included latching mechanism. I would find something that once latched will stay latched on windy days.<br> WamBam response: Thank you Matt for your honest feedback! We constantly strive to improve our product from feedback like this. We'll forward your feedback to our product development team and someone from our Project Consultant team will reach out to you to discuss your situation and help provide a fix!
Don't be afraid of installing any of these fences. The most difficult part of the installation was believing that we could install a fence ourselves just like a professional. The instructions are well thought out. Don't over think it like I did and waste time. A few helpful hints. Rent the gas-powered post pounder. Use a post and pole level I attached a photo below. Lastly, have family, friends, and neighbors available to help the delivery person. We were lucky and the delivery driver was beyond helpful. He assisted in any way possible, even using his own lunch break to help us unload all the boxes. The only regrets are that we didn't purchase extra panels and that we should have done this years ago.
We are so excited about our WamBam fence. We were quoted $8000 by a fencing company for a similar vinyl fence…with WamBam we saved almost $5000!!! It takes a bit of planning, measuring, cutting, and strew driving but besides that the online instructions and videos helped guide me throughout the project. It isn’t something we threw up in one day but we took our time, followed the simple instructions and we now have a beautiful fence around our pool. Thank you WamBam!!!!
I installed this fence around my pool. I did some planning before, I laid the deck boards by installing 6x6 braces and bolted the posts down. Installing the posts and fence was so easy. Loved working with the product and would give a 5 star rating to anyone looking for a fencing installation. Currently getting ready to purchase more to enclose the yard. The staff at wambam are excellent to work with. Back when I was doing the install, I called and they helped me work out any questions that I needed answered.
The fence quality was as good as seen. It was the service and Robert's communication on a daily bases that was a 10 & helped get this project completed properly. Very Happy!
The Gate worked perfect for my project and needs. Very good quality and went together as design and directions. Perfect, great super fast shipping, sales assistance was spot on with recommendations and presale help
We are absolutely loving our new fence! The install was difficult and took us about a week of working off and on. Everyone at the company was super helpful, responded quickly and easy to work with. Our dog is loving being able to run around outside now! Last night we even had 40-50mph winds knocking our trash cans into the fence and it withheld everything. We are very happy with our purchase and choosing to go with you! Please find pictures attached. Thank you so much! Johanna and Matt
We managed to install the Steady Freddy including a gate for about a third of what the local fence contractors all wanted us to pay. I highly recommend a gas-powered post driver, though - especially if you're in an area with very hard soil like the Greater Phoenix Metro Area which seems to consist of aggregate concrete once you're more than 15" down.
We are so very pleased with the experience that we are considering doing this again next year for the entire backyard. Definitely 5 stars!
WamBam has great product and excellent customer service. However I would add that in your instructions to explain how the panels fit into the c channel, there was a little trial and error on my part but I figured it out. Thank you Christie for all your help.
Installed more than 300' Handy Andy and I'm satisfied with the fence. Although there's a learning curve at the beginning, it's not complicated to install. The quality of the materials is good and the fence looks beautiful. The customer service was great. Christie was easy to work with and helped me a lot during the process. She took her time to answer my questions over the phone and always responded to my emails on time. Overrall, I'm happy with the product.
Overall I give WamBam 5 stars! The no dig pipe installation process was excellent and easy to install once you got the hang of it. I also highly rate their customer service department, as we were short a few packages of screws and fence pickets, they were replaced without hassle. Will recommend them for any vinyl fence project.
The fence was no problem. My14 year old and I installed the fence around problems such as rain and running into rock in almost every hole. [20 holes]. After a little over 3 weeks, we finished and our 6'Freddy WamBam Privacy Fence, though not perfect, is up and in my opinion looking very nice. I give the contents of the fence and the delivery a 5 rating. I also give a 5 rating to Christie and Lori for their professionalism and patience in helping with finance. The rental of the gas post pounder went smooth, so also a 5 rating. The installation of the fence, though the You Tube instructions were helpful, I made some mistakes cutting the panels where end spaces were uneven. I'm giving the installation part a 4 rating, and my 14 year old stepson a 5 rating.
Thank you WamBam for a great addition to my back yard! Looks great and dogs love it! Special shout out to Christie W. at WamBam who walked me through the process. Installation would have been tough for me alone without help. Luckily, my neighbors had installed WamBam in their yard and were pros! Just went through a week of high coastal winds and fence withstood it, no problem! Thanks again! PB from SC
This was my third WamBam fence project. All of the projects dealt with curves and slightly sloping terrain. The WamBam Jiminy Picket product was easily adaptable to these conditions. The most recent project received custom scalloping and a custom corner treatment. I appreciate the high standard of customer service. All of the WamBam folks were attentive and professional.
Really easy to install, even in hard, rocky clay, and looks great. I was able to install the posts by myself using the gas powered pounder using a post leveler to keep it level. It took 3 days for full fence install, now I just have a couple of gates left to put up. I was lucky to get it up before the snow fell.
We can’t begin to thank Robert, and WamBam fencing, enough. Our pups have a secure area and can finally run free. We are getting artificial turf hopefully this month and our backyard will be complete. The pups can start realizing that this is their new home. Thank you, thank you, thank you, and Blessings on you all! Sincerely, Misty & Heath
Our property is a 0.8-acre heavily wooded land which is on the corner of our community main street and side street leading to a cul-de-sac. Our property is on a slope and the highest point is about 30 feet high from the main street. There is no flat place on our property that made difficult to put fence around. I decided to replace an old cedar plank fence with WamBam Even Steven Vinyl Fence. The style and white color match the deck fence which I finished 4 years ago. The soil in our area is compacted fine soil with some small and big stones. Fortunately, only a few pipes were hard to pound in. The completed fence is very smooth transition of angle as you can see in the pictures. I am proud to have finished the project very clean and looking good, but also proud to finish the project myself without having anyone to help except to unload the boxes from the truck when the big cargo truck arrived at our house. The time to finish the project took one month and a half. My neighbors all like the look of the fence and nice white color. Thank you for the good quality fence with ease of construction. I can recommend it for a DIY project!
The Peeping Tom fence is a great product. It has the ability to be customized in different ways. Christie was nice to work with as my contact at WamBam and together we were able to figure out all the different variables we encountered.
My 9-month-old roof didn’t do so well when Hurricane Ida hit New Orleans - about 25% of the shingles on the east-facing side peeled off during the hurricane. Thankfully, our Wambam fence used to hide our A/C units survived with no problems. Both pictures were taken 5 days after the storm made landfall.
I would confidently recommend using WamBam as a fence supplier. I was happy with the products I purchased and installed (Jiminy Picket fence, Curious George privacy fence, Jiminy Picket gate, and Steady Freddy gate). The support was excellent. Much of my original order got misdirected in shipping (a Fedex issue; no fault of WamBam), and a number of my boxes had Fedex shipping damage (no fault of WamBam). WamBam worked diligently to find the misdirected boxes and get them to me, as well as to replace any damaged product at no cost to me. Actually, the damaged product had a silver lining: it was nice to have, as I was provided sample pieces to work with as measuring templates. I called to ask questions a number of times during the installation process. I don’t think the phone ever rang more than four times before a real person picked up and answered my question or immediately directed me to someone who could. The gal I worked with on shipping updates (returns/swaps) was great. I am a technical writer who writes manuals for a living, so, the great product manuals supplied by the company and available for download at the website influenced by decision to eventually go with WamBam. Overall, the manuals were great. In my opinion, the one area where the manuals were a bit lacking concerns the coverage of sloping ground and under what conditions you need to swap out normal length posts/anchors for longer posts/anchors. The only guidance that is offered comes in the form of one sentence: “If slope is greater than 10 degrees, please order large anchors regardless of your fence style”. In my case, my average calculated slope over a 59’ fence line was 1.5 degrees, far less than 10. However, because the slope angle varied (never more than 6 degrees), being greater early on and decreasing/leveling out later, drawing calculations revealed I needed to use three (of nine total) larger posts/anchors. After reviewing my supplied drawing (produced with engineering drawing software) WamBam tech support agreed that I did need the three longer posts/anchors, this despite the fact that the maximum ground slope at any one point never exceeded 6 degrees. One thing to be aware of is the company’s 30 day return policy, which basically says that provided product is still in the unopened box, you can return it. Be aware that if you have a large fence project that you cannot complete in 30 days, you could risk finding out at day 45 that you need to return something (e.g., ground slope necessitates swapping out shorter posts/anchors for longer ones). I suspect the company would allow the return past the 30 days but it is something to be aware of. In the photos, one thing to note: The Jiminy Picket fencing should technically have been installed with the bottom fence rail 2” above ground. I placed the bottom rail flush with the ground because I didn’t want to give our small dog a dig temptation and a 2” head start at a tunnel under the fence. The fence probably would have looked better with the recommended 2” gap (and make grass trimming easier), but in our case, the flush-with-the-ground style was the best choice for our Houdini dog (seen in some of the photos).
This is such a great fence gate! It closes automatically and keeps our dog safe and other animals out of our backyard. Transitioning away from the wood fence gate that would swell and then not close, to this, was the best!
I am so in love with this fence. It installed easily and looks great. My yard is extremely uneven and being able to adjust the height of the fence at the end was a huge bonus. This is a high quality fence that will last for years to come. This style of pickets was a lot easier to install than the Plain Jane, because the pickets are pushed through the top rail and snap in to the bottom rail. The Plain Jane fence, which I have in the front yard, with this in the back yard, was a little bit more difficult to install.
I am so in love with this fence. I was postponing putting up a fence because of the tremendous amount of work involved. I am so glad to have found this product. The delivery to Massachusetts was wonderful. It was easily taken off the truck by the driver and placed in my driveway. The installation was so easy, however you have to be careful with your pinkies on the slam post as to not squash them. I ended up getting two panels of the 4' H fence by the road and then transitioned to the 6' H fence in the back yard where privacy is wanted. The transition looks great and I was able to adjust the fence at the end to make sure all panels were where I wanted them.
What a treat to install our WamBam Aluminum fence!! After weeks of unbearably hot weather we finally got started- and in less than 2 days we are 90% complete. Your suggestion of testing the layout for hidden rocks or tree roots with a rebar type pole saved us. We were able to make small adjustments and avoid trouble. We racked to the max on the incline and then turned right 90 degrees for 50 feet to a large pine tree. There were more than enough pieces, screws, nuts and bolts. After a slow start, we got the rhythm and with a few homemade jigs were able to move along quickly. Most important- my wife LOVES it!! Thanks for your coaching, patience and solid advice. <p> Dick Morin Kennebunk, ME
July 2021. I am 70-year-old retiree with limited carpentry skills. I was able to complete the fence project by myself by following the illustrated instructions that were included with the materials. The materials arrived intact, nothing missing and shipped in a timely matter. We were kept updated as to the arrival date so we knew when we needed to be available for delivery. Christie in customer service was very friendly and very helpful in assisting us with what we needed to complete the project. We are very pleased in the outcome of our vinyl fencing and highly recommend the WamBam company!
Our girls love their new fenced in front yard! Prompt delivery. Great customer support for any questions and help with insuring that you have everything you need. The best thing is the ease of installation. Our fence was up in just one day. No digging holes or anything. Worth every penny!
The fence arrived shortly after I moved into my new house and then, admittedly, sat in boxes in the basement for more than a month as I had an ample number of home projects to tackle. But just two weeks ago I woke up on a Saturday and thought I needed to enclose the back area for my dog. I had been intimidated to start such a “big” project as I had social activities planned for both Saturday and Sunday so didn’t have that much time to spare, but the fence was pretty straight forward and didn’t take that long. I only needed three panels to close off the area due to my neighbors‘ wooden fence on the property line. But it looks great, has made the dog (and thus the lady of the house) very happy, and I’m downright proud of having done it myself. I don’t know that I could have even gotten a contractor to bid on such a “small” project right now as they are all swamped. I did, unfortunately, over estimate how much fencing I needed and have another three panels in boxes in my basement. But I am considering buying more to fence in the side yard (I’m on a corner lot) to give the dog even more space. It’s a great product. I live in the type of neighborhood of white collar workers where most people would have contractors do a fence, and I’m enjoying the reputation as the new “handy” guy just causally throwing up his own fence in a weekend. I may not tell them that WamBam did a lot of the work for me.
I absolutely love my fence! It was easy to install and is very good quality! I love my yard now!
It wasn’t easy but if you watch the videos and take your time it’s very doable. We have a lot of clay in our yard so driving the posts was a challenge. Next to the house where it had been back filled when the house was built not too difficult. The rest of the project 80 ft of fence was best done with a gas pounder. I will definitely recommend this WamBam. Items were packed well, shipped quickly. When I needed extra posts you were very helpful. Definitely a happy customer!
Robert was great and his shining customer service is what got the two stars. As another positive, the fence also looks nice now that it’s up. This was put up by someone who has installed multiple types of fences through the years and even with this experience, it took 3 full days. It was an incredibly long process and the lack of instructions was extremely frustrating. Also there were at least 6 different types of screws but nothing was labeled as to what went with what. It would be helpful to have the screws separated, labeled, and an instruction manual that said what screw went with what. Gate was a huge hassle. Very expensive for shipping when extra parts had to be ordered. Overall a frustrating experience and not what we expected.<br><br> Response from Manufacturer: Hi Jessica! First, let us say we genuinely appreciate your honest feedback and we are happy you like your fence. We’ve passed your comments along to our product development team for them to implement. We are always looking to improve our product and help customers with clear installation instructions. We’ve just recently started the process of updating our install guides to make it more clear which screws go where. Thank you for your purchase!
I installed this fence myself in March 2021 and so far it's holding up great after some strong storms. I especially enjoy having privacy in my own yard now...“Good Fences Make Good Neighbors” is really true... The installation was smooth I didn't make any mistakes and I only made one trip to the hardware store.... incredible!
I installed this fence in March 2021 and so far it's been holding up great. Because of the concrete footer all the local companies I called first for traditional vinyl fence would only quote it for installing next to the footer. Then I discovered Wambam the ordering process was smooth and quick. This was the first fence in my life I installed and it was pretty easy DIY project. I'm really happy with the results and it looks so much better than the chain link fence it replaced.
"Truly a simple product. Me and my 79 year old dad installed it in four afternoons." Josh reached out to us to inform us that his fence is now finished! He is not only pleased with how it looks but with how simple it was to install! We truly love and value feedback from our customers.
This was my first fence I put up and it was by far super simple and easy. I was shocked at how easy it was to put into the ground. No digging holes, very minimal measuring. The hardest part of deciding which fence to buy. If you didn't want to dig yourself, or pay someone else, stop thinking and do it. This is my go to next time around.
Wambam's no-dig fence was a surprisingly easy DIY project for my family to do! We have hard packed clay soil and yet each post took less than half a dozen hits to sink into the ground. For the few posts that we misplaced, it was very easy to grip the anchor and pull it out. Now that all of the pieces are attached they are not going anywhere! It took two of us about 4 afternoons to build about 200 feet of fence and two gates. The instructions are very clear and the staff at WamBam are super helpful! I have already recommended them to my family and co-workers who are looking to fence their yards.
Installed approx 400’ of Handy Andy aluminum fence. Really excellent product; easy to install, sturdy construction, and a look that increases my property value.
This was the easiest smoothest and quickest fence install I have ever done thus far. The gas pounder made it even quicker. I have received several inquiries and compliments on it already since I live on a corner lot in a very large neighborhood. I really wish there was a sticker or label I could put on the fence so others would know where I purchased it from. I am extremely satisfied. It is unique compared to several other neighbors fence and looks to be more sturdy than the others as well. I completed it in 1 1/2 weeks in between my say job. Highly recommend!!
One of our customer's purchased our Handy Andy fence about 3 years ago. They followed up with us to let us know how happy they are with their fence at their new home. They sent over a picture, and it still looks like it did one day one! "“Here is a picture of the last two fences we purchased and installed. They look great and I think they are 3 years old. Just another reason to keep using a product that is easy to install and holds up over time. -Josh”
Well I got my fence finished ✅ 17 panels and a gate all by myself working on it for three weekends. We are so happy with WamBam I can’t even express it in words. From beginning to end you all were amazing to work with !!! Thank you so much !!! Jason Duffy was a huge help beginning to end. The whole team at WamBam was so great with explaining everything from shipping to delivery. Don’t let not being a contractor intimidated you anyone can do this project on their own.
I ordered several parts for my WamBam fence from Lowe’s and Amazon but needed some brackets and had the best experience with wambamfence.com! The shipping was super fast and customer service was excellent. Turns out we only needed one set of brackets and the return was super simple. We used the brackets to attach the fencing to the house.
A truly excellent product. The instructions were clear, the assembly process was straightforward, and the materials were high quality. Everyone I worked with at WamBam was helpful and friendly. A few lessons I learned from installation: -Getting the pre-assembled fence panel sections was well worth it. They come ready to slide into place, which saves a ton of time. -The gas pounder rental was the best decision I made. The cost increase is small in the scheme of things and it makes the process so much easier. -Having a good drill and impact driver made things a lot easier. You will be drilling and driving screws into steel.
At first, I was skeptical of WamBam fence when my wife mentioned how it was installed without any concrete or digging. I sent them a quote I received from a local fence company and they sent me back the quote with everything I would need. After watching the videos, they had on their website I gained confidence in it and went ahead with the purchase. The install is EXTREMELY EASY, and I could not be happier with how it turned out. The other good news is I will not have to replace it because it will not rot like my old wood fence. I could not be happier with my decision to use WamBam fence and highly recommend it to anyone looking to save money on your fence by doing it yourself.
Super pleased with the quality of the products and with the finished project. Highly recommend WamBam. for all of your fencing needs.
I am so glad that I found this no dig fence! It went up in a little over a day and my dogs got to enjoy freedom! This was easy to install.
Christie Has been Awesome !! 10 Stars . Every question has been answered and then some. I'm excited to start building my new fence , it arrived and I know that Christie will be available to answer any questions I have along the way. Give her a raise ! Super Customer Service person . All the People have been great by the way . Heck I feel I want to work for you now. Thank you James Burdell
I am so glad I found this picket fence option. Our property owner rules limit us to 46" high picket fence and therefore we needed a fence that I could conform to the rules and adapt to a sloping yard. Renting a local post pounder was a necessity to get the posts vertically level because the one post I drove with a manual post pounder is the least vertical. The staff at WamBam was very helpful in determining my 175' needs, then the order was processed and shipped very quickly. We are very happy with our new Jiminy vinyl fence.
I am writing you today to be entered into the WamBam Photo contest. I’ve attached some pictures to this e-mail. WOW! I must say, I am so improved with this whole process. At the start of our fence searching, I received quotes from multiple companies with huge price ranges and very unreliable people. I was lucky enough to find Wenz Fence Ohio and I am so glad that I did. Jessica from Wenz Fence made this process so seamless. I then began working with Jason Duffy and he was just on top of it as Jessica was. Not one e-mail sent to Jason went more than a couple of hours unanswered. The fence arrived as expected and Jessica and Andrew from Wenz Fence got right to it and started installing. The look of this fence is absolutely fantastic and our pup Oakley loves it even more than we do. Again, I just want to say thank you for everything! Hopefully you enjoy the pictures as much as we enjoy our new WamBam fence!
We needed a quick solution to contain our small dogs. Local fencing contractors were booked until spring of 2021 and an invisible fence would not prevent other animals from coming into our yard. Not to mention that I am the world's most inept handyman. Those three things combined pointed us towards this product. I managed to set up a small dog run (28 x 7) over the course of a weekend. I'm so happy with the result, that I plan to replace the dog gates around my patio with more WamBam fencing.
Great product went together easily looks great. The product was delivered without issue. Robert was a great person to deal with and made the purchase and installation simple. I would definitely recommend the product and don’t be scared to install it yourself.
There are multiple reasons I would give Jason and the team at Wambam more than 5 stars. The individual personalized service, rapid shipping, almost instant tech tips, and assistance with any question are the reasons why I returned to WamBam for my 2nd fence in 5 years. When the time arises again, BAM! It will be WamBam again! Thank you again for making my installation a snap and our home beautiful. Erik Steel
I couldn't recommend the Slim Jim Wan Bam more. I installed close to 380 feet of the Slim Jim fence in a weekend, and it looks GREAT. It was easier than any other fence I have ever installed. I loved not needing to dig holes or carry around bags of concrete. I highly recommend renting the gas post pounder, as it made easy work of driving the posts into the ground. Customer support is second to none, and they are committed to ensuring you are happy and are successful.
Good fence, great customer service, but could be even better. I had a pretty difficult install and had to use quite a few of the tools and methods in the Murphy's guide, and some that weren't even there. Overall I like the fence a lot, and it looks great. Shout out to Robert W. for great customer service. I have the following recommendations/comments for WamBam: 1. Include a printed out instruction booklet. I had one for the gates, but not the actual fence. It's a pain to keep referring to my phone, and almost no one has a printer these days. 2. include some extra hardware! Screwing into galvanized steel is no joke, even with the right tools and pre-drilling per the guide you end up breaking a lot of screws. After spending $4500 on supplies, you'd think we'd get a bag of extra screws/bolts, etc. I ended up buying some of my own tek screws. 3. For the small #8 tek screws, there are two different head sizes! This was baffling, about 20% of the short small screws required me to switch socket bits. 4. For the angle bracket, it doesn't really allow any racking like the normal bracket. I didn't know this going in and ended up having to cut the fence. Why not just have it open on the top and bottom like the normal bracket to allow for angles? 5. Also the angle bracket doesn't allow for the square part of the carriage bolt to lock in like the normal bracket, making it hard to tighten. 6. Of all the ways to secure a post in the Murphy's guide, the best easiest way when hitting rocks/boulders is just to simply concrete that post in. However this option isn't in the guide. Why not? This is way easier than bolting/shim to the rock,drilling through the rock, etc. and much more stable. I found that once I dug out around the post in order to remove the rocks that it was hitting the soil is disturbed and you can't get it to be as tight, just concreting them in at that point seems like the best option. I had to do 5 posts (of 40) this way and they are probably the strongest posts on the line. 7. The supplied/recommended screws for each step seem pretty arbitrary in each case. I think it could be simplified to just have a short and long screw that use the same socket size. This would also simplify the pre-drilling. 8. The bracket jig supplied was very helpful, however, the notch cut out is too big and has too much slop for the bracket. There should be better tolerance on this as the bracket can move around enough for them to not allows line up for the fence panels. 9. it should be noted more obviously that you should put the puck on BEFORE pounding the post. I had a number when I first started that I had to file down the mushroom on the post to get the puck on. I found a small note that you MAY want to do this, but honestly it should be mandatory/obvious. <p><p> Response from Manufacturer: Hi Scot! First, let us say we genuinely appreciate your honest feedback and we are happy you like your fence. We’ve passed your comments along to our product development team for them to implement. We are always looking to improve our product and help customers with clear installation instructions. We’ve actually just recently addressed the issue with different screw length and head sizes, standardizing the head size and only having screws of 2 lengths now. We are happy to provide extra/replacement screws for customers who need them. Thank you for your purchase!
Truly an amazing product. Easy to install compared to a typical fence especially once you get going. Closed off one side of our yard including a gate in one day with the help of my brothers. It's not quite as sturdy as cement but met our needs perfectly and stands up to my kids climbing on it. Just as importantly, the customer service was phenomenal. Everyone was genuinely kind and helpful. We had a couple parts damaged in shipping and they sent replacements within a week.
This is an excellent fence! We get compliments from people walking by, and many ask where we purchased it. We always let them know how pleased we are with the fence. Recently, we had a large tree fall on our fence. While it knocked it down, surprisingly, nothing was broken except for a post cap! We were able to put it back together and it looks as good as new! If we move from this house and need a fence again, we will order the same one. Very happy with both the fence and the company!
Highly recommend. Very easy to do it yourself. Day one is slow, but after that you will cruise. Just make sure the post goes in straight, or you may have some issues securing the rails if the distance between posts is not right. The instructions are very easy and accurate, leaving the installer with no questions. I also misplaced a set of screws twice, somehow, and Wambam sent me new ones (twice) at no charge. Excellent customer service!
Awesome product and great company! Jason and his team provided exceptional customer service and support. Jason work with me to ensure I ordered enough product to cover 500 linear feet of property with 2 gates and he helped me understand how everything worked. The fence is ascetically pleasing, all my neighbors say so, and is strong enough to keep in large dogs. Thanks to the WamBam team.
I started talking to Jason last fall when thinking about fencing for our backyard. This was following a free quote from Lowe's which I'm sure would have done a nice job but the quote was 16,000. It is a sizable job, over 350 ft but I was a little floored by that price. Winter came and then Covid so the fence project took a backseat to other projects first. When we did get the funds and wanted to move forward, everyone and their cousin was ordering fence from WamBam and we'd have to wait for stock to come in. No worries; it gave me time to prep and read up. The instructions and such were a little overwhelming but that's how information can be when you don't have to relate it to anything. Lots of messages during the delivery process to make sure I was home and able to help unload. As you can see in the picture below, I was ready for a lot. The driver actually used his lift gate and wheeled to the driveway and I pushed it with him. This guy was an artist getting the large pallet on to the lift. It was like parallel parking an 18 wheeler. Saved so much work! I would assume not every driver will do this but I was thankful for it. That said when product arrived and I dove in, it all made sense. I could easily see what the goal was to each step and how to adjust and fit things to my specific property. We went for a sloped look so assembly seemed to be easier because instead of leveling each section, it just had to be the same distance from the ground and pass the eye test. One bump was the gas pounder. I had over 60 posts to put in and I was cruising along to about post 35 and it quit on me. Not knowing anything about small engines, I had to go to a manual pounder. It definitely slowed me down and added some time to the project. That said, I contacted WamBam that day and they were very apologetic and actually refunded the full price of the pounder. I looked in the area to rent a pounder but no one even carried them to buy. Oh, well. How it goes sometimes. I arranged the formation of the fence a little different that our original plan and we ended up needing one more anchor and post. Jason had it shipped the next morning and had it in two days. I covered the opening and worked on the gates so our dogs could enjoy the space. To say they were over joyed is an understatement. You can see the first reaction in a video on WamBam's facebook page. I got everything finished with caps and some small adjustments to fit my eye and I'm seriously passed my expectations of how it looks. The installation was so very DIY doable. Be sure to have a drill with the correct size drill bits and heads that you need for the screws. Unpacking all the boxes was tedious but that's to protect the product and keep it organized. I just accepted that it was going to take time and kept plugging away (Just like the advise in the instructions.) My wife and I (along with the dogs) are so happy to have a backyard that looks great and is usable. The process was simplified by Jason and really the whole staff. We have exactly what we wanted when we first bought our house and we got it for less than half of a contractor doing it for us. WamBam is definitely a 5 star company with outstanding customer service and great products!
Jason was great to work with and delivered the exact parts we needed for a complete job. We went with the gas pounder and are very glad we did. The entire job took us only a couple of days and had a very short learning curve. We love the professional look of the installation, knowing that we did it ourselves.
I am very pleased with how the fence turned out. The installation went really well. Not too bad for my first ever fence install. Thanks again for all your assistance.
Wam Bam exceeds all standards in fencing companies - from the moment I called to get information on the products and pricing to the install - I could not be happier. Linda was the best and went above and beyond to help me with my order, she also recommended Shawn to help us with our installation and he made the process so easy, I would highly recommend Wam Bam for any and all of your fencing project needs!
We wanted our pool area to feel open like a resort but we needed a fence for safety reasons. The Slim Jim fence was the perfect solution. It looks so beautiful and provides the security we need. It was much easier to install than a typical fence and we’re really happy with the quality as well.
I bought this to install about 200 feet of fence. It made quick work of pounding in the steel rods. It is built to last a lifetime.
I built this fence about 4 years ago. It was easy to build, compared to a wood picket fence. It looks as good as new. The only maintenance I do is to wash it down with a hose. I like your no dig system. The steel rods are impossible to get perfectly plumb, so you invented a cam system to plumb the post. It works great. We put in about 200 feet of fence in a couple of days with gates and all. We are in our 60s. We enjoy our fence and would do it again. It is an easy DIY project. The gate is easily adjustable. I have clay soils that move a little during the seasons. I can easily adjust the latch if the soil moves in the spring.
I love this product! We received quotes from local contractors for installing a privacy fence, however, the cost to have it installed was more than we could afford. So after a few google searches, I stumbled upon Wambam. After doing a lot of research about dig-less fencing specifically Wambam, I decided to order over 300 ft of privacy fence and hope that my husband and I could install it without many difficulties. Well after only spending weekends installing 10-11 panels a week, we finished it. We used a manual pole pounder for the entire project, and saved a ton of money. Installation is pretty straightforward. No cement and no huge equipment. All you need is a drill, hand shovel, pole pounder, 4 foot and 2 foot leveler and a couple pieces of scrap wood to level the panel. Also, this product is very durable and can withstand some pretty harsh winds. We were skeptical about how sturdy it was, but after being hit with some pretty high winds the past couple months, the fence is in amazing condition and we have had zero issues with it. I highly recommend this product to anyone! Thanks Wambam.
Our dogs can finally run free! This was a great purchase. Thank you WamBam fence! We're so in love with our fence!
We are extremely happy with our new fence! This project is very cost-effective and the installation was super quick and easy. The people at WamBam are great to work with and are happy to help you with all your needs!
We are so impressed with the install process and very happy with the outcome! All of our neighbors want WamBam fences installed now. We are very pleased with our purchase. Thank you WamBam Fence!
I am SO thrilled with how well my fence turned out! We had over 400ft of Steady Freddy installed, it took about a week but looks amazing! We also had a custom trash enclosure made with leftover parts and fence. We truly couldn't be happier!
We had Wambams Peeping Tom installed. This fence is beautiful! It really does pass the wind test! We have had many high wind storms with gusts up to 70mph and not a single picket has bent or flown off. We would suggest Wambam to anyone considering a new fence.
We had an excellent experience with the Wambam installation. They are extremely professional and truly care about the product and their clients. We absolutely love our fence and are very pleased with our decision to use Wambam! Their product is top-notch and we would recommend them to anyone! Thank you again for everything! Stella (the dog) thanks you all too!
The Hubby gets deployed semi-frequently these days.. and being 6 months pregnant, I didn’t want the hassle of walking a dog with a 2 year old. so he fulfilled my request of putting in a dog space behind our garage. The entire project took us about a week, but the fence only took 2 days. This is our 2nd WamBam Fence in the last 2 years. I would definitely recommend the automatic post pounder no matter how small the project is!
I absolutely LOVE my WamBam Fence! Thank you all especially Shawn for your response and attentiveness to my specific needs. I've attached a few pics of our little fence project. Arlando and Jessica Lara
We purchased 300 feet of the Even Steven fence with two 8ft gates and a four ft. We also added a forth row because we have a large dog to keep in. This was by far the easiest fence we have installed. I definitely would recommend the ponder. We managed to do the install in four days and still have our marriage intact lol. Once we got in a groove even up and down a hill and with multiple cuts it was easy. We may have done it quicker if it wasn't 98 degrees out. Shawn was great to work with. We had a few questions in the beginning and he answered them for us right away. They also were able to place another order for us quickly when we decided to make the additional row. I would use this fencing again and have recommended it to many people. We move alot and if I had to do it again I would. It's worth every penny.
I think your product is excellent. I've been a contractor for 30 years and have been impressed with this fencing. Because of ease and speed in installation Your vinyl system is the best installation design out there. I've included a picture of how it dressed up the front of my home. The 1 acre property surrounding my house has nearly 500 feet of your fencing product, My son and I installed the entire system in about two days. I did take some liberties and modified the front section of fence in front of my house to include some scalloping. I thought you might like to see the results.
We installed approximately 75 feet of fence with two gates in May of 2019. Through the first 3 months of ownership, we are very pleased with this product. We were able to install the fence ourselves at about half the cost and half the time as compared to quotes from some local contractors. Assistance, support, and instructions from WamBam were excellent and I am convinced we made the right choice. We received many nice comments from neighbors about the appearance. Our only difficulty came with gate installation. The instructions for the gate were not quite as comprehensive as with the rest of the fence and the hardware design did not seem perfectly suited to the application. We were able to make things work and the gates are still performing well, but I do worry that I will eventually need to retrofit the hinge connections to the gate posts. Given this experience, I would have still chosen this product.
This is our 2nd wambam fence, and the experience was great once again! Shawn could not have been more helpful throughout the process.. Everytime I needed to reach out for help with something, he was right there to lend a hand! Because we stepped the fence down I forgot I would need a 7ft post In a spot where the dip was a bit greater than the others and Shawn shipped it on a Friday and it made it to us that following Monday.. much appreciated buddy! Now on to the fence... it Exceeded our expectations!! Our previous fence was the nervous Nelly, and we loved that you didn't have that secluded feeling with it (since we had woods behind us it worked well!) Moving to a development we wanted the best of both worlds, a bit more seclusion but didn't want to shut ourselves off from everyone completely.. Peeping Tom was the absolute perfect choice! Thanks again Shawn for making our purchase with wambam another solid and successful experience!! P.S. 1st fence was done with the manual post driver , and woooooooh that's a workout. Peeping Tom was done with an automatic post driver .. if I have to recommend one vs the other, it would be to go with the automatic post driver 10x over lol!
Awesome fence. I love it! I did about 200 feet of mixed fence, with the back of my yard being Jiminy Picket and the sides and front being Peeping Tom. It turned out great! The installation was really easy, although it was a lot of work and did take a while. But I’m much happier with the final result than I would have been had a contractor done it. This fence seems pretty strong, and I like how all the parts are modular, so you can mix and match different fence types and it all mounts using the same standard sizes and parts, so it works out great. I measured a lot of difference fence rails and the length variation was too small to detect with a tape measure, which is really good. Their customer service is fantastic! I had a problem with my order and they rushed me replacement parts, free of charge. I also needed some more screws toward the end, and they sent me those too. They are super easy and nice to work with. The fence is great! I love it. If I had any feedback for the WamBam company it would be to please include a few extra screws here and there, especially for a large order. I ended up using every screw I had, and needing more. These are specialized self-tapping screws that are not easy to find. When you have to make custom sections around gates, it becomes easy to run out. I had three gates in my fence, so I had to use a lot of them. Great fence! Awesome!
Great product! The quality of the material is much better than a lot of the post I have seen. The process of putting these post in are far superior to the standard way of digging a hole and using concrete. If you have a lot of poles to put in , I would suggest the gas pounder. Makes the job much easier. The customer service is awesome! I received my order and when it came, I had two boxes that had been damaged. All I had to do was contact WamBam and replacement products were sent out the same day.
The WamBam customer service was amazing! They walked me through the process of purchasing the right product right away. They also saved me a ton of money by purchasing directly from them vs a big retail store! Thanks WamBam!
This fence is absolutely perfect. We installed almost 300 feet of fencing in 1 day with a solid crew of 4 men. We originally looked for something to keep our pup in the yard and every option just seemed incredibly expensive, so we were just going to roll the dice with a flimsy (and ugly) wood fence. I am so glad a family member recommended Wam Bam. Jason was incredibly helpful from a service perspective. The dedication to our satisfaction is very obvious with him! If we had to give a tip to anyone installing this fence, definitely read ALL of the instructions before the fence arrives. Additionally, don’t underestimate the power in getting several buddies to help. We really figured 2 guys to pound posts, 2 to assemble the fence and 2 to work on the gate is ideal. We are getting raving reviews from our neighbors and we’re already planning on putting this exact fence up at a friend’s home! Thank you Wam Bam!
Thanks to Linda & the people at WamBam for amazing customer support. Take a look at my WamBam Plain Jane fence installation and the testing of the gate. https://youtu.be/gH8ntPaFBUk Thanks, Dave Dreyer
When I was looking to put a fence in on our property, one of the challenges is that I am on a typical Ozark soil that is mostly rock with a little bit of clay. By pre-drilling the holes with a SDX max hammer drill and a inch and a half bit I was able to easily pound in the posts and it couldn’t have been easier. Great design with the adjustable donuts. Looks great and everything snapped together pretty much Wam Bam. Customer service has been awesome even after I called back in when my neighbors lawn mowing service hit one of the posts. They got me a replacement quickly at a reasonable price and I had it changed out in less than an hour. If this was a typical concreted in post sleave I’m not sure what I would’ve done. Thanks for the great design guys and keep doing what you’re doing.
I love this fencing. I purchased a small run with a gate to start redoing an old chain link fence about 3 or 4 years ago and it is still in excellent condition. Last year, I purchased another much longer, partial run, and I couldn't be happier. We mixed the Nervous Nelly with about 35 feet of the Steady Freddy, as we wanted a little bit of privacy from the house next to us, but we didn't want the entire yard to be privacy fencing. The two fences meshed perfectly together. My husband and I installed about 95 feet over about 3 days (we only worked a few hours each day). And after a summer of tons of rain last year, there are no wobbling fence issues. We love this product for its durability and easy of installation! We've just ordered the rest of the fencing today to finish off replacing that ugly chain link fence! Neighbors love it too!
My fence was purchased over five years ago and looks like the day I installed it. I recently replaced a section that was damaged by a snowplow throwing heavy snow from the street and it looks like the section beside it that is five years old! Customer service was excellent in helping me get the parts I needed and very courteous. I would recommend this product highly as a very attractive and durable fence. It was also very easy to install. It’s appearance today looks like it did over five years ago! Thank you Wam Bam.
WOW!!! My fence has been up for Two Years In four Season Climate and still looks brand new!!!! I put the fence up (yes, I was able to do this alone, that is how easy it is) as a dog run for our two pit bulls. The mud and other items they get on the fence come off with a squirt from the hose. They run around and bang into the fence and it is still standing just as straight as the day we put it in. The customer service is the best I have ever encountered. they will answer all questions with a friendly voice. Any issues, they will resolve it. So happy with this fencing we are ordering more to fence in our entire yard. [the black marks at the bottom of the fence are from the lawn mower wheels and they come off easily with water and a scrub brush]
From the first time I reached out to Fezan for a quote to the final assembly of my fence the final day the customer service was top notch. I would highly recommend the product as well as the company. The install can be a bit overwhelming but read the instructions, watch the videos and before you know it you'll be installing fence like a pro. FYI the gas pounder is a must
I used these panels to fence in a half acre lot about a year and a half ago. Actually about to purchase a few more pieces to finish a new project because we had such good luck with it. I hired a handy man to install for me as it was quite a few pieces and I wanted it done faster than I could do it on my own. However, it seemed like an easy process for them. It's been a sturdy, great looking fence. When my dogs get mud on it with their paws I just hose it down and it's good as new. My experience with customer service has been very professional and helpful. The one time I called after hours and left a voicemail they called me back before noon the next day. I highly recommend this fence model and company.
I can’t say enough about the excellent customer service I received from the beginning call for a quote from all the helpful staff at WamBam. I put my fence up about 8 months ago and have so many comments from my neighbors and people driving by. I purchased about 200 linear feet of fencing of the picket Plain Jane style with one gate. The fence project was to contain and keep my lil fur buddy safe, although he had already made friends with all my neighbors. Many people were surprised on the quality of the fence and how reasonably priced it is. And the few neighbors who kept an eye on progress of the assembly commented that they were surprised that a woman would attempt the project alone. I now am in the process of building a small enclosure for my trash bins and wheel barrel. The rep at WamBam (Fezan) was quick to respond to my email and the few additional items are already en route to my home. I continue to recommend WamBam to anyone who asks about fencing ideas. Thank you wamBam, you truly have a customer focused, no pressure, no hassle professional team.
Great customer service. I would recommend WamBam to all my friends.
Buy from Wam Bam Fence Company. I couldn't be happier with their products and customer service is second to none. Excellent folks to work with. I did a 60' x 60'. It went so easy I will be adding on. Also rent the pounder, it's amazing how quickly your fence comes together. Couldn't add pictures but trust me, this is the way to go.
Your fence was unbelievably simple to put in and the way you packaged it really made the process seamless.
I recently installed 250' of this fence and it was a very smooth installation. From the time I decided to order this fence until the end, the customer service has been great. The fence was fairly simple to install and I did most of it myself. I would recommend the gas thumper for the posts. We installed 36 of them in just a couple hours. I don't necessarily like the way the gates install, but otherwise the rest was great. Time will tell on the gates. My wife and pets love it and the neighbors commented on how well it looked. I would definitely buy another fence from WamBam.
Very gorgeous fence! My company installed this fence in a new community and residents were amazed at the architectural design. A very classy and upscale look to what is normally a smooth 4 sided white white vinyl fence that blends in with the crowd. It has received many compliments and the owners are more than completely satisfied and pleased with it. The installation was very easy and quick. I would highly recommend renting the pole driver, esp for the price Wham Bam rents it for a week, and the fence will be a breeze. I will definitely be using this product moving forward into the spring!!
We had several traditional fence companies quote the job at $10,000-$12,000. We saved $6000 with wambam! My husband, son, and I installed the fence over 2 full days with the powerpounder (awesome tool). The fence is beautiful and sturdy! In fact, a few limbs fell on it this fall and there was NO damage! I couldn’t be happier! Oh, and the customer service is fantastic! They are with you every step of the way.
We seriously love our fence! We needed to keep a few sneaky neighbor kids out of our yard - but I wanted something that looked lovely. We called around to a few local companies - and even stopped at the Orange Apron Hardware store. We received quotes from $6,000 and up! Yikes! I accidentally found this DIY fence on Amazon. But we ordered directly from WamBam. Directions were kind of confusing on paper - but the videos they have really helped! We had a pretty big city yard to fence in, and rented the electric fence pounder. Basically, if you have more than 5 posts to put up, you should rent one too. The downside was that it broke 2/3 of the way through. Huge bummer. I called WamBam and they offered a partial refund. Looking back, I wish I would have waited for them to send a replacement. We were missing one of the top inserts for the lattice panel - a quick call to WamBam, and they sent us a replacement free of charge. It's now been over a year since purchasing and installing our fence. It still looks great! Super easy to clean! We're finding out you can't mow too close to the fence, or the wheels leave marks. No big deal - a simple weed wacker does the trick! We're planning on ordering a smaller, white picket fence this summer for the front yard. Just waiting on WamBam to add more "decorating" options. I would love an arbor for the front walk.
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 is 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, Loks 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, 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.
I installed wambam fence about three to four years ago and it looks great. We've had two hurricanes pass through here with high winds and the fence held strong. I had one section left to install that I had to put off due to medical issues and misplaced the mounting hardware, called wambam to order replacement screws for the ones I lost and they sent me new hardware at no charge even after I told them it was my fault I lost the hardware. I will be moving in the upcoming year and will have to build a fence at the new location. There's only one company I'm going with when the time comes. WamBam Fence.
Installed 300' of Handy Andy fencing over the course of about two days. Overall, the work is pretty straightforward and, once you get a 'system' down, highly repetitive. GREAT looking fence. Using the gas powered pounder makes the work manageable for two people. I can't imagine installing a fence having to dig holes to make it happen. Great product!
Thank you WamBam for making a great fence and for all the support. My husband and his father installed the fence just in the nick of time before he deployed. The staff was readily available to answer all our questions and quickly shipped additional fencing needed to finish the job.
This is my second purchase from Wambam. I bought and installed an aluminum fence I think 2 years ago and that one still looks great. It's been tested by our crazy weather, at one point a large oak branch fell on it, and it's still great. So, this time I decided to go with a vynil fence for my rental. It looks great as well, but my expectations were high to begin with. Yes, FedEx could have done a better job since it was more than $300 for the shipping, but in the end the fence is great. Fezan helped me with the order, he did a great job. Since it was my second time around I wasn't expecting anything but great service and I got it, seemless perfect transaction. For everyone wanting to try this fence, please read the instructions. We only needed to install 6 panels, but still managed to make a few mistakes that we had to correct (like attaching the top bar up-side-down). It even has a sticker on, that we found later. In my opinion the vynil fence was way easier to install than the aluminum. It took us half a day. We'll see how well it holds up to our weather and the renters (mostly the renters I'm worried about).
Best Fence Ever!!! I did a lot of research on DIY fences. I have never installed a fence and was looking to install a new fence that covered 270 ft on the sides and back of my house. My soil in Florida is sandy until you get down approx. 1 foot where it is a sand and clay mixture. I thought about wood fencing since it was inexpensive but in Florida I noticed that they look good the first year then degrade rapidly even when maintained. Also the installation makes them heavy on one side and prone to heavy wind from the other side pushing the fence over. Our friend put in a wood fence last year and in less than a year a wind from a storm pushed it over about a foot. This fence was installed using 4x4 wooden posts in concreted holes. I liked the look of vinyl fencing and noted that it held up much better than wooden fencing. No painting or staining. They also appeared to stand up to high winds as well due to their flexibility. The only thing I noticed is that you periodically need to clean the mildew on the northern side of the fence due to lack of sun exposure. The quote I received for a wood fence (materials and labor) was $6000 a year ago. I looked into vinyl fencing and a fencing company quoted me around $10,000. They all used post hole digging and the use of concrete. Both of these are labor intensive. During my research I finally came across Wambam Fencing. The information provided on their website was eye opening. It definitely triggered my DIY desire to install a fence that would look great but did not require digging holes for posts or using concrete! You just had to drive pipe anchors into the ground and put up the fence panels. After reviewing their site, receiving the sample and picking Linda’s (Wambam representative) brain I decided to purchase the 6 ft. Freddy privacy fence. Linda recommended renting the gas powered pounder due to the number of pipe anchors (approx.. 47) required. Best recommendation ever. The prep work for me was getting a permit, removing the existing fencing, and setting up the fence lines. My existing fence is chain link except for the wood fence back section. I removed the wood fence section that was installed on the back property line due to a portion of it being blown over during a hurricane. The posts were installed using holes filled with concrete. Taking them down was tedious and the lumber was full of screws (a lot!). I needed to remove the screws so I could toss them in the garbage. I removed the remaining chain link fence. This was much easier except for removal of the metal posts. They were also placed in holes with concrete. Removal of the wood and metal posts looked like a real tough job. I initially tried to dig them out and break off the concrete in the ground. Even when the concrete seal was broken or the concrete removed it still took a lot of effort to remove the posts from the sand. Sand definitely held the metal posts securely without concrete. I solved this back breaking post removal issue with a car jack and pipe wrench. I had to purchase a large pipe wrench for the 4x4 wood posts. My other wrench could fit the metal posts. I was able to remove each post with minimum effort by myself in 10-15 minutes. Place a wood support under the jack, get the jack as close to the post as possible, put the wrench on the post and on the jack lift pad. Hold the wrench handle down slightly and jack the wrench up making sure it bites into the post. Continue to firmly hold the wrench down on the jack lift pad as you go up. Depending how deep the post is you may have to reset the jack and reposition the wrench down and start again. This method can be done with one person and will remove the post and cement. I then used a sledge hammer to break off the concrete. I filled the holes left after removing the posts and packed the dirt down well especially those that will be adjacent to the new Wambam pipe anchors that are pounded in the ground. Delivery of the fencing products took less than a week. Wambam tells you to get help unloading the truck. So true. We had four people and it took 1.5 hours mainly due to the fence product being put all the way inside the truck vs. at the door end. There was no damage and everything was delivered. Remember that all the screws Wambam provides are exactly what is needed. If you need extras call them. The quality and look of the product is definitely a plus. Service was excellent. Before you start: “Follow their directions”. You can print them out from their website. Review them carefully and ask any questions before you start. Wambam assistance was immediate. They have technical coverage on Saturdays. Rent the gas pounder-Makes installation of the pipe anchors go smoothly and fast. The pounder can be used by one person but I recommend two. Makes the work really go easy, especially when doing the alignment checks. If you are off a little at the end the anchor donuts provide the proper fine adjustment. Check and make sure all guide lines are straight and level. During installation: “Follow their directions”-do not reinvent the wheel. Call Wambam if you have questions. We did 2 anchors and installed the posts and panels for one section initially to get a feel for the complete installation process but then we pounded the anchors for each side of the fence and then installed the panels. Since my son works we did the anchor pounding mainly on the weekends and I was able to install the posts, rails and panels by myself during the week. We kept the pounder for the 10 day rental period but it actually took us 5 days (4 hrs a day) to locate and pound the anchors. It cost $200 to rent but it was worth it. We used a post level device vs. a level when pounding the pipe anchors into the ground. I strapped it on the pipe, used it to initially ensure the post was straight and started pounding. The vibration on the anchor caused the bubbles to break up on the level but it just needed to be shaken after stopping the pounder to recombine the bubbles and check the alignment. We stopped 3 to4 times until the anchor was driven in 4’. It took us about 5 to 10 minutes per anchor to pound. Setting the anchor locations took the most time. If you make a major mistake and need to relocate the anchor remove it using my car jack method (Note-it happened once during the installation). There was no need to reinforce the anchors once they were pounded in. However, after installing the corner and gate anchors I dug down approximately 1 foot and 4” around the post and put Secureset in just to add extra reinforcement. Secureset is a foam material (available from Home Depot online) that you mix and pour into the hole. It fills around the anchor to provide more rigidity like concrete. It cost a little more than concrete but is so much easier to make and pour into the hole. This stuff was used to install hurricane resistant metal power poles by FPL. You can use Secureset for anchors that are close to previous post holes vs. concrete. Our yard is sloped as you go back and is sloped in the middle section of the back. We could have followed the contour of the ground since the slope was not steep but the step method looked nicer. Ensure your posts are long enough and the plastic anchor alignment device is deep enough to ensure you can install the rail for the panel section that steps down unless you want to notch the rail. We installed the 6 foot gate last. The only issue I had during the whole process was the gate wheel. There are no details on its installation from Wambam since it is not their product. They suggest an 8” gate wheel. The problem is when the wheel swivels it hits against the gate and prevents gate movement. You can put a spacer on the gate and install the gate wheel on it but for that size wheel it would have to be 5” wide. I opted for a cheap gate wheel (4” wheel) from Home Depot and installed a 1” spacer inside on the vertical gate section and the gate wheel on the spacer. Since my gate opened into my yard and the concrete flooring sloped downward as I opened the gate I installed the wheel onto the spacer at the fully open gate position. The gate wheel also had to be installed to ensure the spring pressure pushed the gate up slightly to avoid a slight high spot on the concrete surface as it was closed and to ensure that the gap between the latch post and gate was sufficient to allow the latch pin and latch pin holder to close properly. Install the latch pin holder last to ensure the latch pin is centered in the opening. Once set, screw the latch mechanism on the vinyl post. The figure for gluing the caps on appears to tell you to place the glue inside the cap along the portion that sits on the top of the posts. Just put the glue on the inside corners of the cap then put it on the post. Make sure all the posts are level with one another. Be sure to have extra drill bits or sharpen them periodically. It helps during the drilling of the metal pipe for the screws. If you have assistance that’s great but the installation can be accomplished by one person. Installing the pipe anchors using the gas pounder works very well with 2 people. The rest of the installation was performed by me with some help from my son over 6 weeks working just a few hours 4 days a week. I bought a few extra posts since I was going to use them for squarefoot gardens so the total cost was $6300 which includes the $200 rental fee for the pounder. Enjoy the pictures. P.S. Due to the length of time I took to complete this review my neighbor also installed a new vinyl fence using a fencing company (Note: we saved them one side of their yard). I do not know what they paid but the quality of the Wambam material is far better.
I'm so excited about my new Wam Bam fence. We've had a few challenges along the way to getting it assembled, but Wam Bam has offered great support in solving these issues and has even sent out some extra parts I ended up needing to get the job done. My dog can't wait to be free in the yard; me too!! Thanks, Wam Bam!
We bought our fence in 2015 and it has held up great!!! It was easy to install and saved us quite a bit of money. They were very helpful on the phone with any questions regarding the install. Last week a tree fell on it and damaged it. I had some replacement parts, but not all. I got on the website, did a customer support chat with Fezan and within minutes they were agreeing to send out the part I need free of charge! Great company who truly knows what customer service is!
Excellent product! Excellent customer service! Their online instructions, tutorials, and videos are very thorough and well done. First of all, I was shocked when I called this company and didn't have to go through a long list of directions from an automated phone system. Secondly, these people were speaking a language I could understand. Thirdly, I was actually talking to somebody in my own country. What a concept! Their fence products are superior. I installed a six-foot privacy fence and a 5-foot Nervous Nellie fence. The installation was quick and easy. I wouldn't even think about going with anything else.
This fencing system is amazing! It’s durable, sturdy and looks fantastic. We saved literally thousands installing the fence on our own versus having a professional installer erect the fence. The installation process literally couldn’t be easier. Within one day, my wife and I installed 15 panels and a gate along part of our yard. The post tamper is a must and made installing the posts easy. The directions are clear and they have easy to follow videos which we watched before starting the project. Several friends, neighbors and family members have bought and installed the fence after seeing ours and hearing how it’s really a DIY project. Kudos to WamBam for making a great products.
I have to say this fence is as beautiful as I could have ever imagined. It is just not my opinion but the opinion of the many folks in my small town who stopped by and commented. I messed up and glued a gate corner wrong but FK in customer services sent it new corners at no charge! Another reason to buy WamBam fence! Thanks
Can't say enough good things about Wam-Bam products. My husband and I installed the Jimmy Picket fence as a screening for A/C units and oil tank. What a difference it made. Looks beautiful and we have gotten a lot of questions about where we got it. WamBam's customer service is the best. Everyone is friendly and very helpful. Fezan was able to help us and provided superior customer service.
One thing I would like to let all of you know. We had a hail storm that hit us with golf ball size hail and 60 mph straight winds along with it. This resulted in horizontal hail projectories that covered the ground. This resulted in destruction of all the vinyl siding on the house with holes as large as your fist, replacement of the roofing shingles, dents in all the gutters and 12 windows that had to be replaced due to breakage of the plastic window sills and shredding of the screens. However, there was no visible denting of the small amount of fence I had erected. Also, there was no physical damage because I hadn't screwed any of it together because I was still trying to determine the clearance under the fence so I had to take it all back apart. There was just no damage to any part of the system and it withstood the wind even though I hadn't screwed it together! I expected to go out after it was done and see fence panels everywhere, but was pleasantly surprised. I have video of the hail storm through a small opening of the front door but wish I had thought to look out the back window at the fencing. Again, demonstrates how awesome and robust this product is! The inventor should be proud.
I could not be happier with my Wambam fence. I decided to do a large project to expand my back yard to give my young kids some room to enjoy the outdoors and to put in a swingset. When we bought the house the back yard had a decent downward slope then dropped off about 1 foot where it met the woods line. I had a large retaining wall built and fill brought in to expand and level out the usable area. The wall was about 2.5 feet high on one end of the yard but about 5.5 feet high on the far end of the yard. Having young kids i knew I would have to put in a fence to keep them away from the edge. <br><br> I began researching my options, and all the fencing companies i talked to wanted to put in large concrete footings for each fence post. Since I wanted the fence as close to the wall as possible I was worried about not only the tearing of the geo-grid the supports the wall, but also potential heaving putting more pressure against the wall in the cold NH winters. <br><br> I stumbled upon Wambam and spoke to Chris and Linda several times and they were extremely helpful. After some emails back and forth i ended up ordering about 150 feet of the slim-jim fence. My application was a little different in that i wanted the fence to be shorter than the 4 feet it came in and it needed to follow the curve of the wall. <br><br> With that in mind i ordered the panels un-assembled so I could cut them down to size. While that was VERY time consuming, i was in no rush and took my time and LOVE the finished product. I was able to use the special swivel brackets to curve the fence as well. I liked it so much i ended up ordering some additional fencing to completely close off the back yard and also i added a custom double gate i made for a sloping hill (used wambam's gate as the base).<br><br> Some observations below: 1.) If you are happy with the stock dimensions of the panel i suggest you order them preassembled to save time<br> 2.) I found the Big Bertha Post Driver sold by Wambam to be more than adequate for driving the posts in (disclaimer I am a male in my mid-30's)<br> 3.) There is definitely a learning curve but once you get the hang of the process it is easy (i put up the whole fence on my own)<br> 4.) Wambam was super responsive in answering any questions during the installation process.<br> 5.) Check all your boxes before you plan to put up the fence. I has some screws missing and one of the post was damaged but wambam got replacements out to me within a few days.<br> 6.) Take PRIDE in the fact that you did it yourself!!!!<br><br> If you are interested in the final product i have submitted additional photos to the 2017 Photo Contest.

Love this product! Easy to install, & more than that, easy to customize to your particular property. All our neighbors love it too. But beyond a great product is amazing service. These people at Wambam are there every step of the way, any kind of support needed or product information, replacement they do not hesitate to step up. Best purchase, by far best customer support EVER!!!!
I installed this fence with my father after doing the research and deciding that in Ohio clay this would be way better than digging holes. It was very easy to install having no prior knowledge about building fence and I really couldn't believe how beautiful it looked when done. Do yourself a favor and get the pounder if you have a lot of anchors to put in. I was quoted about 4 times the cost of this fence to have a contractor come in and install a vinyl fence, and this was something I was very proud of when I completed it. I'll be the first to admit most of my home improvement projects don't look as good as I had it in my head they would look (if I ever get them done) but this looked better than expected and was a joy to build. The staff was on my side the whole time. Great people to go along with a great product.
After building a new house on 2 acres in rural Northern Mississippi, we needed a fence to secure our pool and allow the dogs enough room to run and Take Care of Business!! Because we exceeded our budget on the house, we needed a fence in a hurry that fit our budget. I called around for many quotes and talked to many friends who have built a many fences (cedar privacy, iron, aluminum, etc.), and then I talked to Linda at Wam Bam Fencing!! We purchased ~200' of Plain Jane with 2 gates and could not be happier!! With the help of 8-10 friends, a whole bunch of cold beer, food and many laughs, we were done with complete installation in ~8 hours. The Wam Bam system once you get started is so easy!! We had ~24-25 posts to drive, would suggest the power pounder if you are doing more than that or, bring lots of help! I drove all but two with a standard post pounder and felt it for a few days! The fence has been in for ~3 weeks and we love it! No problems thus far! Great customer service/support throughout the entire process!! Great Pricing...cheaper then anything else I found! Easy to install and very durable!! Thank you Wam Bam Fencing!!!
Really happy with this product and the way it turned out. Perfect for our puppy and adds a nice feel to our yard without shutting our neighbors out. Customer Service was prompt and very helpful for the couple small things that we encountered. Couldn't recommend this product enough.
By far the easiest installation and nicest looking fences I have ever worked with. The only special tool that I needed to purchase was a hammer drill (wanted one anyway) so that I could install the surface mounted posts. Once those were up, the rest of the installation was actually quite simple. It felt like I was putting together a large version of a Lego set. We have received numerous positive comments from neighbors. Great price, awesome appearance and easy installation make this a no-brainer for anyone looking for a vinyl fence.
I had The Jiminy Picket fence installed by a contractor. The contractor did not install a few of the components correctly and would not fix the problem. I reached out to Stephen of WamBam. Even thought he issues were with the installation being incorrect, Stephen corrected the problem and couldn't have been any nicer. The fence looks great and their customer service is fantastic. Thanks again Stephen!
Beautiful! Our neighbors ❤️ it, especially the one adjacent to our property! The fence was put up in short order by my Husband, myself and the kids! Just Super
After installing 130 feet of fence 21 posts and two gates all I can say is WOW !!!!!! what a GREAT product. I would never ever install anything else after using the WamBam system. Out of the 21 posts I had to cement 4 because of a giant bolder in my yard but all the rest went in like a hot knife thru butter. My son and I did one side with 10 anchors. The only thing that slowed us down was checking for level. It took us a little over an hour to install them. The gas pounder (Rocky) was one of the sweetest tools I ever used and I'm a retired mechanic. Returning it was very easy to say the least. The engineering of this product is perfect it could not be better. Every section of my fence is perfectly level because the way the system is engineered it's design is pretty much foolproof. If you make a mistake you can redo it and make is right. To say I'm pleased with this product would be a understatement. The service I received it second to none. Any questions I asked were answered right away they even went way above what I expected. My hat is off to the people of WamBam fencing. My only question is "Do you need a sales rep in the Pittsburgh area"? Because you can sign me up right now. Great Great product.
I would like to thank Steve for all the help answering questions that might seem simple!! This is a great product that I heard about several years ago and when I decided to replace the fencing around my pool I went with WamBam because of the comments and reviews of others. From the time I called and spoke to Denise and received emails for Linda that the product was shipped it has been a pleasure. They are very helpful answering any questions and made using this product the right choice!1 Thank you for the great customer service I would use them again for any future projects. George MacGregor
Due to a new family member - Shortcake, our Pomeranian mix pound puppy - we needed to install a fence in our yard. After a lot of research on the internet, decided to try Wam Bam's Handy Andy Aluminum Fence. We wanted to keep an open look to the yard and the aluminum fence worked out great. It blends in with the green grass, flowers and woods perfectly. The neighbors all love it and were surprised it went up so quickly. I installed 54 panels and 3 gates (approximately 400 ft) in a little over a week.The instructions were great. I did all the installation (69 year old grandpa) myself with Big Bertha and with some help from my wife in slotting in the panels and gates. Chris , my customer service rep, was very helpful in answering questions and supplying some parts that I either lost or damaged. Thanks! Very happy with the process and the fence. Thanks Wam Bam!
Had mine for over a year and a half and it's been perfect. Even with the outrageous wind storms of Idaho. Easily to assemble and has maintained very well so far.
Great stuff. I've put up fence my whole life on the farm, barb wire, welded wire, wooden, panel, etc, etc. This was for my yard (its not strong enough for cows, but was not selected for this purpose). Its easy to put up, very forgiving for any mistakes, and looks great once in place. Once posts are lined up, install goes very very fast. Great fence, Thank you for keeping it easy and looking great!
I am 67 years old and two years ago I built a 120 foot Jiminy Picket fence myself. I actually enjoyed the process and the results were spectacular. I have received many compliments from my neighbors. CUSTOMER SUPPORT MOST IMPORTANTLY .... separates the PROS from the wannabes. Last summer I realized that I needed long black screws which came with the swinging gate to make an adjustment. I called Wam Bam and much to my surprise they confirmed my original order and sent me a bag of screws without charge. This year my home in Denver was hit by a violent hail storm and in addition to extensive damage to our cars and roof my WAM BAM fence took 4 direct hits and several parts were damaged. I called WAM BAM hoping to purchase the replacement parts. Not only did they have they parts they once again shipped them out free of charge. WAM BAM made my day. I strongly recommend WAM BAM because the stand behind their product.
Good quality fence. Install was a breeze.
I am a contractor and I installed a couple of your fences and fell deeply in love with the ease of installation. I have installed both types with the post being pounded into the ground and also mounting the fence on a flat concrete surface. Both were installed quickly and painlessly might I add.
My WamBam fence exceeded my expectations! I recently installed the Jiminy Picket 4-foot vinyl fence around my oddly shaped lot and the end result blew me away. The fence looks beautiful, substantial, and regal, with the caps and gates adding a sophisticated flair that all my neighbors have commented on. My very tall home is offset beautifully by the fence, providing just the right amount of privacy and utility. It actually makes my yard look bigger! Many people have commented on how great the fence looks and when I compare it to my neighbor’s fences, all nice, there’s just no comparison. The WamBam Jiminy Picket fence is sturdy, beautiful, and usable. I absolutely love it! It’s made it a pleasure to sit outside again and I’m inspired to take on some creative landscaping projects as well. My WamBam fence is now the ‘star’ of my street!
This product is great. Installed pretty easily, instructions easy to follow, Clean and nice look. I would recommend this product. I attached a shorter picket fence to the corner of the 6' privacy fence, and it went together easily and looks good. Also... the optional gas powered pounder was a life saver. Made life a lot easier when pounding in the metal poles.

The Best Customer Service!
So happy I found this product! Been looking to install a fence at our new house. Wanted something that I could do and would not break the bank. WamBam solved both of those problems. First panel was a little rough to get install but once I got the process down it was a piece of cake. Installed over 200 feet of over the weekend. So happy I choose WamBam for my fence then the big box stores. Also, the best part of the process was dealing with the customer support. They staff is so knowledgable and was eager to help. I would recommend this product to everyone.
First of all, I would like to express my appreciation to Wam Bam team. I have never had to deal with fence installation before and I spent quite a lot of time last fall searching the web for different options. Finally, I found this company and purchased 4x7ft Jiminy Picket PVC panels and 7ft posts for approximately 220ft of fencing. My communications with customer service were very easy and straightforward. These people are extremely friendly and cooperative. My big order arrived safely in several days after ordering. I found that the PVC material is of superior quality and design of the panels and especially posts are simply extraordinary. I am sure it is really the best. Thanks to special grooves, the posts are very durable and panels can be attached to the posts only with four screws (no mounting brackets with numerous screws required!). Taking into account complete lack of experience and rather rocky soil in my backyard, I decided to stay with traditional way instead of using Wam Bam’s no-dig installation procedure. With help of my great neighbor friend, we installed more then thirty panels and posts just following carefully written manufacturer’s instructions and using our own creativity. For the posts, we dug holes with 6-inch bit gas powered auger and used polyurethane post setting foam (Secure Set Model # SS-4-20 Concrete Alternative). Although this product is far more expensive than concrete, it is much easier work with it: a) no back pain; b) the foam sets up in a short time after mixing and pouring. It is durable enough and my fence safely survived our harsh winter winds without any problem. However, we used concrete for the gate posts to add additional security. The main purpose of the installation of the fence was to protect our backyard from frequent visits of the deer. These guys are nice and beautiful, but they are able to destroy everything green, especially in winter time. In order to avoid this, we added 1ft PVC lattice panels on a top of the 4ft picket panels. For this, we raised a position of the top rail of the panel to the very top end of the pickets. After installation of the panels and posts, we placed U-channels in combination with J-channels on the top of the rail of each panel thus covering existing holes. Then we attached 1ft U-channel and J-channel pieces to each side of the post above position of the top rail and inside of the post grooves creating a frame for the lattice. After insertion of the lattice, another piece of U-channel was added on a top the lattice. Herein, all sides of the frame were secured with stainless screws. Thus, the total height of the modified panels is 5ft. This height is good enough to stop deer from jumping through the fence. At the same time this fence is really attractive representing unusual and beautiful combination of the pickets and lattice, which I have never seen before. To complete this project I need to add gates that will be modified accordingly. As a conclusion, I would highly recommend Wam Bam products to everyone. Peter, Lancaster, NY
I have had the Steady Freddy Fence for several years now. It was very easy to install and has stood up to some serious wind. I have always appreciated the customer service at WamBam and would recommend this product.
Easy to install and great looking.
Easy install and great value.
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 Depot's website. I liked what I saw so I decided to visit their website. That's when I learned about the no-dig system. I was a little skeptical at first just like I'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 let's just say we couldn'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 "fence party". 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 Depot's website. If I hadn'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 WamBam'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, "it is very elegant." 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 company...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. I'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 wasn'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 don'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, I've been dreaming of a big yard for my dog for years and I finally have it and couldn'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. I'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 you're still digging holes to put in your posts, you'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. I'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 can'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. I'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!
It'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 didn'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!
The WamBam instructions and web videos are great. Customer service is fantastic as the people are very knowledgeable and friendly; shipping was timely.

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 couldn't be happier with this product and the experience that I have had with WamBam. At first, I was a little skeptical ordering something sight unseen on-line as this fence was being put into place to contain our two dogs and also protect our 2 year old daughter from wandering to our pond, so I needed something sturdy and substantial. All of my fears were put to rest starting immediately after ordering the product when I got a call from Customer Service. They had reviewed my order to ensure I had what I needed, walked me through the process and provided me with contacts should I have any issues. Delivery of the 29 sections of Chatty Cathy fence that came by freight carrier was efficient and prompt allowing me to start the project right on time. The assembly of the sections was well documented in the instructions and went faster with an additional person; it took us just under 4 hours to put them all together and get prepped for the following day of installation. After laying out the fence perimeter with string and determining where all the posts would go, we made quick work of those as well. For ease, we chose to pre-drill the holes with a 24" long, 1/2" auger powered by an 18V cordless drill, just to ease the driving of the posts and eliminate the any surprises of hidden obstacles. I also opted to use about 8 of the stabilizers spread evenly over my 28 posts seemed to sturdy things up even more even though I would have been fine without them. We had one person driving posts and one following behind pluming and leveling the steel rods with the provided hardware and installing the decorative posts. When all that was complete, it was an easy time installing the already assembly fence panels and gate. Again, great product with easy installation that is solid enough to last the test of time. The black fence blends in well with our surroundings while also looking distinguished next to the house. I would recommend a WamBam product to any of my family or friends, and it was fun and easy enough that I'd also offer to help put it in!
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.
I must say, I was really impressed at how straightforward and (relatively) quick the fence was put up. It came out looking awesome.
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.

Being from Kansas I was a little nervous before buying, but was assured over the phone they would stand behind the product. They had only one incident due to wind and it was in Kansas (it was a 6-foot full privacy fence facing north in the open without wind-break, the fence did not fail but the vibration from the wind worked the anchors loose in the ground). 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 have had MANY neighbors commenting on how much they like the fence and asking questions about it. I am very happy to point them to your website. No one in this area has seen anything like this.
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.
Thanks for a great product. My dogs can now run free in the backyard!
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.
I was building a new home and trying to save wherever I could. I found WamBam on line and thought it was perfect for my situation. I called the service center and they were very helpful and even offered suggestions on how I could save even more. This product is perfect for anyone who is just slightly mechanically inclined. I installed an the entire fence system by myself over the course of a day and a half. The instructions are easily followed and the product goes in just as they explain. I am very pleased with the fence and would use and recommend it again and again. Thanks for everything WamBam!
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)!

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
Great quality, A superior concept that meets all claims. The only type of vinyl fence I will ever install again (WamBam)!
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.
We love our vinyl fence from these guys. The matching gate has high quality hardware and high quality vinyl, just like the fence panels. I was surprised to see that it took someone 6 hours to put together. It only took my husband an hour or so to assemble. He's a pretty handy guy but the instructions are pretty well laid out and quite extensive and he figures that even a non handy-man should be able to put it together with relative ease. We at first thought the pricing was slightly high, but after receiving the product and comparing it to the cheaper vinyl that they have at the store, we were really happy with our decision. The manufacturer's website has some interesting videos comparing the quality of their fence to the cheaper vinyl. And it was much easier to install than digging holes (or so my husband tells me). Overall, a great purchase.
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
