He is the BEST!
I used Reuben Borg, the fence guru, to do our fence as well as three other neighbors. We had one difficult neighbor that didn't know who Reuben was and thought we were trying to expand our yard without permits and doing a fence that didn't meet code. She was committed to stopping this fence and went to the planning committee. They came out and inspected our site and found we were in full compliance as Reuben knows the rules better than anyone else. Our permit was granted by the city as expected.
Reuben only hand selects wood that he knows won't warp over time. He never buys a post with a center heart in it as they will crack. He drove hours to replace a post that was droppd off at our site as he wanted to treat our home like it was his home.
He is very creative and thought up an idea to use our new backyard fence to include a raised garden bed on the inside area of our backyard. He also created a seating area out of the retaining wall so when we have guests over, we can sit on our raised garden bed area.
Because Reuben is starting up his new company (he founded Borg Fence but lost it years ago to his ex), he is actually less expensive than other fence companies as he has less overhead. His crews worked 13 hours per day this weekend on our 4 homes and the two nice neighbors all loved his work. We have not had any feedback on the grumpy neighbors yet but they paid so it must be okay for them.
Please take a look at the fence and gate at our home at 4822 Muirwood Drive, Pleasanton. I can't speak highly enough of this guy, use him as he is the BEST!!!

Reuben Borg Fence came over to simply repair a fence. We kept adding requests to the job until it became a much larger project. They got everything done on schedule and to spec. The foreman, Floyd, and their workers were all polite, conscientious, and professional. We recommend Reuben Borg highly and are already preparing to give them another job.
