About First Class Fence

A hard-working family business with experience, First Class Fence was started in 2004 by John Homan. John's 35 years of experience in the fence and access control business are demonstrated by the knowledge and training we bring to every project. We are familiar with the latest materials, techniques, codes and requirements, so you can rest assured your job will be done quickly, neatly and efficiently. Our crews are thoroughly trained so that each customer receives "First Class" treatment!
