About Us

Our Journey in Fencing

At Perfect Picket Fence and Stain, our story is rooted in a commitment to excellence. Created by Nicholas Graham, our company emerged from a desire to fill a gap in the fencing industry: the need for higher standards and more meticulous craftsmanship. We believe a fence is more than just a boundary; it’s a key part of your home’s character and your personal style.

Our approach is simple: never settle for ‘good enough.’ Each fence we build is a testament to our dedication to quality and attention to detail. We see ourselves as more than just contractors; we are your friendly neighborhood experts, committed to enhancing your home with beautiful, durable fencing.

In our journey, we have always prioritized building strong, lasting relationships with homeowners.  At Perfect Picket, we’re not just building fences – we’re building a reputation of quality construction, customer satisfaction, and professionalism. Let’s create something exceptional together.

Identifying the Problem

Before starting Perfect Picket Fence and Stain we recognized a glaring issue with the level of service in the Cedar Valley’s fencing industry. Homeowners were often left with subpar fences and short warranties, stemming from poor communication, inadequate quotes and proposals, and unsatisfactory installation quality. This was a problem we set out to solve.

Our Resolution: Elevating Fencing Standards

Our mission is straightforward yet impactful: to provide the Cedar Valley community with the highest level of service, communication, and quality possible from a fence and stain contractor. This mission is embodied in our guiding principle: “Can we do better? If yes, then do better.” This mindset has propelled rapid improvements in every facet of our operations, from enhancing customer communication and transparency to refining our warehouse organization, material ordering, field training, and installation processes.
