Support a Local Business

We are a locally owned and operated business. Our employees come straight from the Minnesota community, meaning we know what our community needs from their fences. As a local business, it can be hard to compete against bigger name-brand fencing companies, but your support means the world to us.

We don’t have the same support as bigger companies, but that is what makes us different. We know that the only way to continue to be able to serve our community with fences is to provide the absolute best products and installation labor possible.

Especially after the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen many companies be forced to close their doors. With our customer support, we have been grateful to continue to keep our doors open and even begin to expand after the pandemic. As we continue to build our business, we ask for your support in this endeavor whether that’s purchasing a fence or simply spreading our name around your local community. We can’t do this without you!

Professional Products and Innovative Services

Part of our Northland Fence difference is offering professional products and innovative services to all our customers. These products are manufactured to last for years and remain stable throughout the harsh Minnesota weather.

Our services are the same way. We are constantly looking for the best services to offer our customers including fence installation. We are up-to-date on the latest technologies and continue to implement the most effective ones in our services.

Steel vs. Aluminum

We choose to offer steel over aluminum products for a variety of reasons. Aluminum, while flexible and lightweight, cannot stand up to the Minnesota climate. It damages, bends, and rusts too easily as a lightweight material.

Steel, on the other hand, is extremely durable, and secure, and falls under our 15-year material warranty. With our galvanized steel especially, it is more resistant to rust and corrosion than aluminum. Steel is also more customizable than aluminum, and many of our customers value this aspect in their fences. While steel may have a higher initial cost, it is a better investment in the long run.

Vinyl vs. Cedar

We offer vinyl privacy fences to our customers instead of cedar. Vinyl is simply better for many reasons. It has higher longevity, it’s low maintenance, there are no toxic chemicals needed for preservation or staining, and it stands up to the environment, especially fire. Vinyl is a better long-term investment than wood which can warp, become damaged, rot, mold, or burn.

Driven vs. Cement Posts

Our final innovative service is using driven technologies to install fence posts rather than the traditional cement-filled holes. This process has all of the advantages of a cement installation plus some. Driven cement posts, while untraditional, give a cleaner installation and aesthetic.

They are waterproof, durable, and help to avoid post-heaving years after installation. Driven posts also have a stronger base than those set into cement and cut down on installation time and labor costs. There are no disadvantages to using a driven-post technique.

Experience The Northland Fence Difference

We created the Northland Fence difference for our customers to eliminate the negative associations between contractors and their services. We know that many of our customers have had negative experiences with sly customer service representatives and salespeople. That’s not us.

When you partner with Northland Fence for your fencing purchases and installation, we do everything hand-in-hand. We never start a step of the process without your approval, and we are honest and upfront about everything we can offer.

Our standards for ourselves are high. We pride ourselves on consistently being ranked the #1 fencing company in Minnesota, and this is because of the Northland Fence difference. Our customers come to trust us and we create long-lasting relationships with them. We are highly recommended by all of our customers to others looking for a fence, and this is what sets us apart from the competition.

Top Rated Fence Company

In 2022 we received the gold award for the Star Tribune’s reader’s choice for Minnesota’s best fencing company. We achieved this by building our reputation with our customers and the Minnesota community.

Our Values

Since our beginning in 2004, we have set and maintained our company values. Trust, honesty, and knowledge help us to continue servicing our customers with dream fences all around Minnesota.

Without these values, we would not be where we are today. All our employees embody these concepts with every project and every customer they interact with. These values guide how we approach our company policies, projects, and overall structure.


Our first value is trust. We want to make it easy for our customers to trust us to do the best work for the most affordable price. This means that we will never take a step in the fencing process without consulting you first.

We build partnerships with our customers. We set our expectations up from the beginning and work to make it so our customers can trust that we will fulfill these expectations and meet their standards.

Part of ensuring this trust is not outsourcing our labor. All of our employees are in-house and know the Northland Fence standards and how to meet them. We can continue to train and improve as a company with our employees, keeping the trust inside, rather than needing to start over with a new contractor for every project.


Our second value is honesty. We are honest with our customers from the very beginning of the process. We are upfront about our prices and contractual obligations with nothing hidden or sprung upon you during the installation.

We know that many of our customers have had negative experiences in the past with contractors, and we have a mission to repair this relationship through every fencing project. We are honest about what we can and cannot provide to our customers and promise no surprises throughout the process.

The other important aspect of honesty is being honest with ourselves. We want to continue improving as a business and the only way to do this is to honestly know what is working and what is not working. With our 15+ years of experience in the fencing industry, we have learned what we need to do to improve. We are honest with ourselves about our services and products and continue to find ways to grow through reflection.

Knowledge Customer Service

Our final value is knowledgeable customer service. The only way to continue to hold the #1 best-ranked fencing company in Minnesota status is to continue being the expert in the industry. We are constantly learning and growing as fencing professionals, and we never try to hide our expertise from our customers.

Knowledgeable customer service means that we share our information openly with our customers to answer their questions and help guide them through the complicated process of installing a fence. We are here to help you every step of the way and do not guard our information to make a profit.

Customer service also means striving for 100% customer satisfaction with all of our projects. As our number one priority, we do everything we can to ensure you are happy with your new fence. This includes offering our labor and material warranties. We are available to you before, during, and after the fence is installed should a problem ever arise. We work with you, as a partner, to find the best solution.

Labor and Material Warranties

One of the most unique parts of the Northland Difference is our labor and material warranty offers. A fence is meant to last you for years and our warranties guarantee this will happen.

Our 15-year material warranty covers all of our fencing products. We offer professional-grade products for all of our fence installations, and this warranty upholds that promise. Within 15 years after your installation, should you find an issue with the material, you can contact us and we will come to fix or replace it at absolutely no cost to you.

Our 10-year labor warranty is very similar. Because of our innovative installation process of driving fence posts into the ground rather than giving them a cement base, we know that it can be stressful to take a chance on a new process. Our labor warranty means that for 10 years after your installation if you find a problem with the way we installed the fence, like post-heaving or coming undone, we will come out and fix it for free.
