We shopped around and got quotes from several area fencing companies, Northern was by far the lowest. The crew showed up on time and finished the fence in one day. We get compliments from our neighbors all the time! Keagan was very friendly and answered any questions I had. I highly recommend them. We wouldn't hesitate to use them again if we needed fencing in the future.
Northern Fence installed a wood fence for me in late 2021. They were professional, timely, and installed a great product! Unfortunately, ol' man winter heaved up the fence section with the gate latch so it would not close properly. No problem - Northern came back, realigned the latch and repaired the gate! The same thing happened last winter and they are coming beck to get it all lined up again. This company is very responsive and helpful - much appreciated!
We had a great experience with Northern Fence! They worked with us on all the details while we were out of town, and we came home to a really clean black chain link fence installed exactly the way we needed it. Would highly recommend them for any size project!
It was a pleasure working with Jim on the 125’ of cedar privacy fence. We had an unexpected complication with a lot of rock and a limestone shelf. We developed a work-around and got it done for the original quote, very satisfying!
From Matthew doing the estimate and drawing for my building permit, to Mychele quickly responding to emails on scheduling, and to the installers, I had a great experience. The installation was done ahead of schedule by about 2 weeks. There were four installers who were friendly, respectful and informed me on how they would remove my old fence and put up the new one. I highly recommend Northern Fence to anyone who is thinking of a new fence.
Outstanding experience. I had 160' of dilapidated wooden board on board fence removed and replaced with vinyl privacy. Responded promptly to my request for a quote. Competitively priced. A 5 man crew was very well organized, efficient, and made certain the install was done according to my wishes. The work was completed in just over 4 hours, clean up was thorough, and was done 3 weeks earlier than originally scheduled. Use this company!
Northern Fence did a great job communicating ETA and expectations. They removed the old fence, didn't damage anything in the yard. The new fence looks much nicer than I expected and cost about $1000 less than the other quote. I would definitely recommend them
I was happy to get a good quality fence installed on my property before the snow came in December. They made sure to get it done even with delays due to the weather. Very nice solid fence. Would recommend.
We hired Northern Fence to fence in our backyard and had them install 6’ white vinyl. They completed the job in 2 days and it turned out great! They were very responsive to all of my questions and met the install date that they initially provided.I would gladly hire them again and highly recommend them for your fencing needs!
I expressed my safety concerns about my special needs child running out of the yard and down the driveway. They were great helping us get our backyard secure and safe for her. They even suggested adding an additional gate for bringing bigger things into the yard, I hadn't even given that a thought and it has been a lifesaver...and they put the whole thing up in one day! Thanks for all your help and for the beautiful fence!
We have used Northern Fence three times since moving into our house. The first was our initial fence, second was a fence on the back side of our property, and the third was to move around a couple pieces and add a chain link over our driveway. Matt and his team have always been fantastic to work with and their prices are fair. I have had many people ask about fencing companies and I always suggest Northern Fence. If we ever had another house they would be the first contact for me if we needed a fence installed! They do fantastic work!
We bought our new home and struggled with what kind of fence to put up in our backyard. Northern Fence was amazing in helping with the expert advice! We chose a black coated chain link fence and couldn't be happier. From the initial visit and estimate to the day they installed I was very pleased with the punctuality, expertise, and work ethic! Every one of the employees were kind and respectful. I would use and recommend them highly!
Northern Fence came in at a good price compared to other companies we got quotes from. They were responsive to questions and worked quickly. Appointment got pushed back due to weather, but the company communicated with me every step of the way. I love my completed fence and so does my dogs!
Northern Fence is a great company all around. They came right away for an estimate. Wonderful communication between everyone, fair pricing. Great quality of fence, super easy to pay deposit and final payment. Highly recommend them to anyone.
Northern fence responded to our inquiry in a timely manner, and we were able to get our fence put in faster than we anticipated. The fence looks awesome and has made our yard much more private. We will definitely use them again for our next project!
They were prompt and courteous. Committed to a project date and then delivered. Had one small adjustment to make after job was complete and they did not invoice for final amount until they satisfied our concern. Our fence is stronger than some others inn our neighborhood.
We love our new fence! We appreciate the help with getting all of our questions answered. Northern Fence really helped make our ideas turn in to reality. We have a 6 ft privacy fence in the front, and a 4 ft picket style fence in the back so we can continue to enjoy the view of the vast farm fields behind us.
They have a great streamlined system that includes good client communication (especially regarding install date). I had a last minute change to my project and they made it work with no issues. Installers were clean and efficient as well.
Wonderful experience! They removed and disposed of our existing fence, and replaced with much nicer fencing with considerably more practical gates. All work was done well and quickly. We expected it'd be a 1.5-2 day project, but they were done within 8 hours. We couldn't be happier with the work!
Love my new fence! They did a great job, they also respond to your inquiries right away. I had told them I had family coming in from AZ for my install date and they actually told me they'd try to move it up (since it was a smaller job - not something I asked for) and they did by a week! Installers were courteous and it was done in no time at all! Highly recommend!
We had our fence installed last week and absolutely love it! We have a 10 month old puppy and it's a game changer to be able to let her out without a leash. She is so happy! The crew that installed the fence were very professional and fast! Even our neighbors commented how fast it was. The fence looks awesome. The office manager Mychele was very on top of things! We always got prompt emails to our questions, and updates on possible delays due to the rain last week. We will be recommending Northern Fence to anyone we know looking to get a fence.
I am so happy with my privacy fence that Northern Fence installed for me. I was really in a bind because we needed the fence installed sooner than later to keep new puppies in their backyard. I was originally quoted for June 28 or 29 but ended up having the fence installed 3 weeks early! The communication back and forth was amazing and the crew showed up a bit earlier than expected. They got the fence installed in no time and were very professional. I can’t wait to get my new lawn put in so I can truly enjoy the privacy this fence has given me. I can’t say enough about how happy I am. Thank you Northern Fence!!
The crew was amazing! They installed 100 feet of fence in 3 hours. The office people are very prompt with emails and responses. Overall, very happy with result. Installation date was moved up, which was awesome.
I got about 10-15 quotes for my fence and Northern Fence was the least expensive and communicated the best out of all the companies I contacted. They were they installed my fence very quickly and with high quality. I would definitely recommend!!!
We recently had Northern Fence install a vinyl fence around our back yard. We were impressed from beginning to end. They were quick to schedule us for a quote, very professional when we first met, had inventory to get the job done quickly and were reasonably priced. Communication on install timing was excellent and the crew was great. They had the job done in one day and left the yard immaculate when their work was done. I would highly recommend Northern Fence. We couldn't be happier with our choice!
We went to northern fence for our gate repair this summer and we are so happy we chose them! Everyone was extremely responsive and helpful. When we requested a quote they were very upfront about a ball park estimate and asked if we were comfortable mo ING forward. Northern Fence gave continued updates on install dates and even came earlier than they thought! Quality of our gate repair is awesome! Definitely would recommend Northern Fence for all fencing needs and when we can, we will use them for our future chain link repairs!
Prompt, reliable and quality service from initial contact to receive an onsite quote to installation. We wanted a fence within our budget and were provided many beautiful options. Installation date was scheduled in advance and date kept. Follow through with company was wonderful. We are happy and are spreading the work to our neighbors, friends and family to go with Northern Fence!
Very happy with the quality, cost and look of our new cedar fence. Installation was moved up earlier than expected and crew was professional and efficient. All of our questions were answered quickly, and all our requests were completed without any issues. I highly recommend Northern Fence Inc. for your fencing project.
We absolutely love the look and functionality of our new vinyl coated chain link fence. The guys showed up when they were scheduled to and knocked out our project in no time at all. They foreman was courteous and knowledgeable and he and his crew did a fantastic job.
Had my old fence taken down and replaced with a new shadow box fence last year. Then rescued a dog later in the year and need to get a gate across driveway and completely surround my yard with fence. They came through beginning of this year and got it done. My dog and I both love it. Thanks guys.
I cannot express my happiness with my brand new fence from Northern Fence! The whole team is thorough, professional, efficient and knowledgeable at what they do. The Northern Fence team came early and worked in the blistering cold for 2 days (although if it was nice out i know that team could smash out a brand new fence in one day). i’m beyond thrilled. it looks great, and I can’t complain for the price! for all fencing needs: Northern Fence is the place to seek!
The crew replaced a section of fence, installed a new gate, and put in support posts where needed - they did a fantastic job! I am very happy with the quality of their work and friendly service. Highly recommend and will be having them back next year to do the other gate.
We can HIGHLY recommend Northern Fence. They were incredibly professional and did what they could to find out property lines in a pinch. The installers were incredibly nice as well. It was super hot weather while they were installing so we supplied a cooler of water for them!! They were so appreciative!After the install, we noticed a couple boards had some issues. Right after I sent the email to Matt, I had a response that they would come back Monday to replace; which they did!!Incredible customer service!! Hands down the best. We are very glad we went with them.
Rough start as they were extremely busy but once we got our fence installed it is great. Looks good too. Our dog loves to be able to run now. The crew who did installation were very professional and pleasant to work with.
We had several quotes for a new fence and they were very reasonably priced and professional. Job was completed in one day and when we had one small issue they came back right away to fix it for us. We have nothing but good things to say regarding Northern Fence!
Northern Fence recently installed a wood privacy fence at our home. I would highly recommend them for any of your fencing needs. They are very reasonably priced and easy to work with. Also, they have very responsive and helpful customer service!
Absolutely beautiful job on our privacy fence. We had one minor issue with a piece that was slightly damaged and they repaired it quickly and without questions. Thank you Northern Fence. We love it. Great job.
I can't say enough good things about Northern Fence. We had some questionable neighbors move in next door and we decided to build a privacy fence. Northern Fence was quick to give us a quote, quick to put us on the schedule and the guys that built the fence were fast. I checked other companies in the area and Northern Fence was by far the best deal. I highly recommend them if you want a job well done.
Was very happy with the work I had done! Even with the virus they came out promptly and got my fence done so I don’t have to worry about my fur babies anymore. Thank you very much also the installers were very nice.
Our fence project turned out great! From the bidding process to the finished product, working with Northern Fence was an easy, positive experience. Small company, nice people. Because the project got pushed back a couple of times I almost gave them a four star rating instead of five. But the delay was due to weather - can hardly blame Northern for that!
Northern Fence did a great job. Came out for an estimate, got a quote, and had the job don all in a matter of 2 months. I called to get the ball rolling on this mid-season and figured there would be no way it would get done that quick. Very pleased with final product.
I am very happy with my cedar fence by Northern Fence Inc. Matt and his crew did excellent work. I spend alot of time in my backyard and love the look of my new fence. I would definitely recommend Northern Fence Inc.
Northern Fence was awesome to work with. Matt took the time to not only answer my questions but educate me on what my fencing options were. They had patience when we were dealing with some property line issues with the neighbor and were flexible with setting my appointment.I really appreciated their no nonsense approach and the fence looks great - thanks guys !!!
Matt and the team were great to work with - they are always very busy this time of year and I know they respond as soon as they are able. They installed 72 feet of cedar fence and was done in just a few hours and looks great. Good work for a good price.
Contracted with Northern Fence to put in black vinyl coated fencing around our back yard to let our new puppy have room to run around. I was provided a very competitive bid fairly quick, but the weather pushed the project back. But once scheduled, it was done in less than a day and it looks fantastic. I would use them again.
Although I had to wait a few days longer than expected (weather not the company's fault), the guys were able to install the whole fence within a morning. They were very courteous and clean (I have not found a scrap of garbage in my yard). I am very pleased with how it turned out and my dogs love the new freedom in their yard.
Although we had to wait a little longer than expected for our fence to be put up, we were thrilled with the results. (Fence was actually built on July 4th!) Thanks, guys, for working on a holiday and for keeping us in the loop regarding the delays. Beautiful, well-built fence...worth the wait! Dunkin loves his new freedom!
Northern Fence installed our fence in one day. The job was done very meticulously and efficiently. The materials used were of very high quality and the work was done by professionals. We highly recommend Northern Fence for anyone needing a high quality fence at a very fair price.
Fence looks great. Installers were professional and left the yard clean of any scraps or garbage. Matt was very easy to work with getting everything quoted and work set up. Price was very reasonable. We would go with Northern Fence again.
Steps To Planning Your Appleton Fence Installation
1. Know Why You Need/Want a Fence
To help your Appleton fencing project be as successful as possible, we recommend planning out your fence’s purpose and what type of fence your prefer and/or need. Consider whether your fence’s purpose is to provide privacy, safety for your children or pets, or improved security.
2. Determine Size & Budget
Next, you’ll need to measure the boundaries of your yard and property and provide your Appleton fencing company with an estimated range. This will help you know how to budget for the project. If you’re not comfortable with or not able to perform this step, our fence installers can help you. It’s helpful to also have a good idea of how much you’re willing to spend on the new fence.
Now let’s talk about the type of fence material you should choose for your home or commercial property:
Vinyl Fence: Vinyl fences, otherwise known as PVC fences, is the type of fence for people who prefer not to worry about having to maintain their fence. This fencing requires little to no maintenance and will outlast most other types of fencing. Some other benefits of vinyl fencing include resistance to weather, insect damage, and rotting. Vinyl fencing is versatile and is available in various colors and styles.
Wood Fence: Northern’s wood fencing is made with beautiful red cedar fencing boards. Every red cedar board has a unique color, giving our cedar wood fences a different look with each installation. These fences are built to last, with the red cedar being very durable and weather resistant.
Chain Link Fence: Chain fences are perfect for people who want to have a strong and durable fence to protect their pets and add security to their home at a reasonable cost. They are also the perfect solution for commercial properties. With a chain link fence installation from your local Appleton fence company, you can expect durability, cost effectiveness, and rust resistance.
Wrought Iron Fence:Looking for a way to raise the value of your home? Our wrought iron fences provide driveway, pool, walkways, and gardens with an upscale, attractive appeal for your property. They are also a strong and durable fence type that are well worth your investment.

Appleton Fencing FAQs
What is the longest lasting fence?
While all of our fence types are built to withstand decades of use, the longest lasting fence is the galvanized steel chain link fence. If chain link isn’t your preference or privacy is what you’re looking for, then we recommend a durable vinyl, wood, or wrought iron fence installation from a local Appleton fencing company that you trust.
What is the maximum height for a fence in Wisconsin?
No matter what type of material you choose, a fence in Wisconsin needs to stand at least 50 inches tall. Also, at the bottom, it should be no more than 4 inches above the ground. The average height for a fence installation in a front yard is around 3 ft., while fences installed in a backyard are between 6 and 8 feet.
How do you install a fence?
There are multiple steps involved in installing a fence. First, you need to plan out all details of your fence project, determining your budget and materials. Next, you need to obtain a permit prior to beginning any work. Next, measure and lay out the fence posts and dig the holes. Position the posts in the concrete and attach the rails or panels to the posts. Lastly, attach the post caps to the fencing.
