Once your fence installation is complete, the Village of Orland Park will want to perform a final inspection.

We love our fence! Carmen was so nice and professional. He didn't even mind my excessive questions. The men that came to install the fence were so quick and professional. They made sure to keep me in the loop with a couple minor snags. They were resolved quickly and with my approval. I would highly recommend this company.

Jason & his entire team were amazing to work with. The team did a great job with my fence. As anyone should do, I reached out to multiple fence company’s and not only was Illinois Fence Company price the best, I never once felt like it was a sales pinch or forced into picking their product. To me the little things mean the most, whether it was being 100% transparent with re scheduling due to weather or for simply filling out the village fence application permit so that I could easily take it to my village for approval. Thanks again for the great work!

We are very happy with our decision to hire Illinois Fence Company to install our new cedar fence. Jason was very thorough, professional, transparent, and honest. He helped us evaluate different options, and ultimately decide on the best fence for us. Would highly recommend!

Jason showed up on the day of our scheduled appointment and provided an estimate the same day. I called him a couple times with questions which he answered behind going ahead with the proposal. NO sales pressure at all which was nice. Just courteous professional service. The crew came out on the scheduled day and removed the old fence and installed the new one. A 6 ft Cedar, with 5x5 posts that were set in concrete. Very sturdy, well built and very well installed
