Family Fences, Ltd, is a fence contractor which builds fences, concrete railings, and decks for residential customers. Located in Glenview, IL, this company serves the northern suburbs of Chicago, including Morton Grove, Skokie, Riverwoods, Northfield, Glencoe, Winnetka, Kenilworth, Wilmette, Niles, Park Ridge, Des Plaines, Mt Prospect, Arlington Heights, Wheeling, Prospect Heights, Deerfield, Edison Park, Lincolnwood, Evanston, Highwood, Lincolnshire, Highland Park, Bannockburn, Buffalo Grove, Northbrook, Palatine, Lake Forest, and Vernon Hills. The company has been in business since 2000 and is family owned and operated. The company uses screws to secure their fences instead of nails, which make the fences stronger and more resistant to wear and tear, as screws provide a stronger hold for the fence than nails would. Screws also make the fences easier to maintain and, because of the longevity of the materials, a more economical option, as the panels will need to be replaced less often.

Services available from this company include the construction and replacement of fences, including wooden, iron, vinyl, and chain-link fences. The fences can be custom-designed to the customer's liking in order to provide privacy and security to a customer's home and property. In addition, this company provides decks, concrete work, and porches and porch railings. For any of the work, the company will meet with the customer and consult on the materials and design in order to determine what the main goal of the project is, such as whether the customer is most interested in the privacy component of installing a fence), and advise the customer accordingly on the appropriate materials for the project.
