Additional Notes

Complaint: After torando struck Jan. 2013 tried to contact Shelby Fence to have it repaired. No retrun phone call from company.
I had Shelby Fence build a 6 ft wooden and 4 ft picket fence built by Shelby Fence. In Jan of 2012 we tried to contat Shelby Fence to have them come and repair damage to fence. No returned call. Found different company to repair fence. Still having problem with fence and will call company that repaired fence after tornado.

Business' Initial Response
Shelby Fence did install the original fence for Mr. ****** in August of 2011. At this time he was satisfied and paid in full. The fence was constructed and was in good standing from August until a tornado caused damage. Unfortunately, we have no record of a voice-mail left by Mr. ******, requesting an estimate to repair the fence. We would have gladly come and assessed the damage for him, however, Mr. ****** contacted another fence company to repair the damaged fence. Since Mr. ****** is still having problems with the tornado damaged fence, he should contact the fence company that repaired the fence after the tornado. We do apologize for any miscommunication, however, at this time, we do not feel we are responsible to cover repairs or work done by other fence companies. It seems the problem Mr. ****** is having with the fence is a repair/insurance issue rather than a warranty issue. We do not warranty storm damage.

Complaint Resolution: Company addressed the complaint issues. The consumer failed to acknowledge acceptance to BBB.
