Fence & Deck Connection is celebrating 30 years of serving the community in Millersville and beyond. The business has completed over 54,000 installations since 1991. Those jobs include decks, fences, screened porches and screened gazebos using first-rate materials.
“This milestone truly represents another evolution in our journey of success,” said Jeffrey Wall, a managing partner and vice president of sales and marketing.
Fence & Deck Connection has won “Best Fence and Deck Company” awards from What’s Up Annapolis, The Capital and The Maryland Gazette. Severna Park Voice readers voted for Fence & Deck Connection as “Best Fencing Contractor” for the last five years (plus awards for being the “Best Place to Work” and the “Best Home Improvement Contractor” runner-up). Best of the Best Television has named it “Best of the Best” for the last five years as well. Fence & Deck Connection has accreditation through the American Fence Association and the Maryland Home Improvement Commission, and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
“Our business has grown simply by sticking to what we do best — designing and installing fences and decks,” Wall explained. “Our executive team has stayed in the forefront of our industry, always looking for ways to streamline our business and internal processes. We have an incredible staff that works day in and day out to help drive our message since our very beginnings: building lifelong clients through our commitment to excellence. Our team of employees truly make the difference!”
In addition to providing excellent service, Fence & Deck co-owners James Rubush and Ben Wolod, along with Wall, have a passion for plugging into the community, in part because of their many personal connections and deep local roots in the area. A native of Cape St. Claire, Rubush graduated from Severna Park High School and has raised three children near Crofton.
Fence & Deck Connection also supports local charities, including Warrior Events, Wy’s Rides, the Blue Ribbon Project, Team River Runner, and the SPCA of Anne Arundel County. Fence & Deck has also sponsored the WMAR ABC2 news team’s “Built Upon a Dream” project, which has included donations of time, labor and materials to The Summit School in Edgewater, The Children’s Home in Catonsville, and the Brooklyn O’Malley Boys & Girls Club in Brooklyn.
“Success is more than numbers and sales goals — it's making a difference in our customers' lives while doing what we love,” Wall said. “Although success is mostly a state of mind, we measure it by the quality of the interactions with our clients and the impact we can make in the people and communities that surround us.”
As with many companies, Fence & Deck Connection has dealt with setbacks due to COVID-19 restrictions. The team has tried, however, to keep business flowing by coming up with creative solutions. Customers are able to receive estimates for onsite design consultations, but these are now completed outside, or even through Zoom or Google Hangouts. They have also encountered challenges as the pandemic has continued, including delays in receiving county permits and building materials.
The company is working fervently to finding patterns and rhythms that help customers feel safe while getting the high-quality work they’re looking for.
