About Us

A little bit of our story

Hello, thanks for stopping by.

I would like to tell you a little about myself and Legacy Fence & Decks. 

Legacy Fence & Decks is a small family-owned business serving Northern Indiana. The word legacy refers to something that is passed on, lasting and enduring. This is true for me as my first introduction into the Fencing and Deck Industries was working with my dad in his small business as a young man. Now, over 10 years later after moving to Texas, going to school, getting married and having a few children, I moved back to the same area I grew up in and have started my own business doing all of the things that I learned from my dad with the hope that my kids will also get to work along side me at some point. Actually my dad now works with me which is a real blessing and resource due to his over 30 years in the fencing industry. 

“All people ultimately want the same thing. They want to be treated like a person. No amount of technology, or scientific advances will undo or change this.”

Over the years as I have worked in multiple different industries including Lawn care/landscaping, Construction,  Building Maintenance, Property Management, Excavation, Automotive & Transportation, I have found that all industries have these two things in common. One, is that you will always have to interact and work with people whether you are an employee, supervisor, CEO, or customer. Second, all people ultimately want the same thing. They want to be treated like a person. No amount of technology or scientific advances will ever undo or change this.

While we do want to be up to date on things and grow, we don’t want to lose the person-to-person interaction and the valuing of this. This goes for all of the relationships that I find myself in: family, friends, employees, and customers. The legacy that I would like to pass on is more than a good product, it is more than just what we do, it is how we do it and all of the steps in between our first contact to project completion.  

I recognize that there are other options for fencing and decks and maybe another company is a better fit for you or your project needs, but if we do have the opportunity to serve you, I want to thank you for giving us the chance to work for you and build a relationship with you. We do everything from custom build projects to simple chain-link installs. If you know exactly what you want we can probably make that a reality for you — and if you have no idea what you want, we can help you figure that out. We look forward to working with you.
