Here is the video transcript from today’s video about fences.

Steve Martin Smith here today to talk to you about fence options in Sarasota County. If you happen to like the fence that’s behind me in this video, that’s an eight foot tall white vinyl that’s supposed to be good for up to one hundred mile an hour winds. I just want to make sure that it keeps my shih-tzus in the back yard. Hopefully we’ll never have the wind rating actually tested, but hey… it’s there if we need it.

So what’s important to you for fencings? Do you not want to have a fence at all because you just want to see the beautiful lake behind your house or are you looking for some sense of privacy or to keep the dogs and kids in the back yard? Well that’s going to be important information for you to tell us up front. When you fill out our wish list on our website make sure you put that in. If having a fence is important to you, do you want a privacy fence or just a chain link fence? Some of the neighborhoods in the newer communities are allowing the wrought iron fences so there are some variety of options. We don’t want to waste your time showing you neighborhoods that you can’t have a fence in - if you want one. is how you can find out everything you need to know about us.
