Whether it is for curb appeal or to curb unwanted solicitation, to keep your pet in or keep strange animals out, to match the neighborhood or to make your own decorative statement, a fence is always an important choice and a worthwhile investment for any homeowner.
Randall Holman has been selling and installing fences in the Triad for more than two decades, but the family passion for the industry goes back further than that. More than thirty years ago, Randall began working alongside his father and quickly grew to love the job. It was Randall’s father who encouraged him to pursue the dream of starting his own company. “My goal was to create a legacy for our children,” Randall says. “I could work for someone else or I could work for myself and show them what you get with hard work and determination.” That hard work and determination paid off as Randall completed fence installation school and a certified installer program for the American Fence Association, and went on to not only found and operate Holman Fence, but also serve on the Board of Directors for the Carolinas Fence Association for nearly 20 years.
Randall believes success comes from more than just hard work, however. “Relationship is everything,” he says. “When you feel at ease with your contractor, it is a win for everyone.” Working from this principle that a strong customer base is the strongest foundation for a thriving small business, Randall and his team strive to make customer relations a priority while also staying up to date with the latest product advancements and safety codes. Randall believes that no project is too small to be treated with the same attention to detail and quality craftsmanship that a larger project would receive, and says the best part of his job is interacting with customers. “From the moment we answer the phone, we want you to know how much we value your business,” he says.
Although he was born and raised in Raleigh, when Randall came to the Triad area for work, he knew he wanted to stay. He says the best thing about Kernersville is the way that residents support one another. “Whether it be the opening of a small business or supporting local charities, they always take care of each other,” he says. After living, working, and raising a family in the Kernersville area, he says he and his family have built a network of what they like to call “framily,” or friends who have become family. He says they could not imagine being a part of any other community, and want to reciprocate whenever possible. “We truly believe in giving back to our local nonprofits and charities,” Randall says. “From charity golf tournaments to school backpack donations, we try to support them in any way we can.” You can rest assured that when you choose Holman Fence as your contractor, it is a choice that supports not only Randall and his team but also the local community and economy.
When it comes to making choices, Holman Fence has a plethora of options for your next fencing project. From traditional choices such as wood or chain link to newer innovations in PVC, Trex, cable railing and more, Holman offers each with a guarantee as to the quality of both the product and the installation. All wooden fences are made with either western red cedar, import cedar, or pressure treated pine, and are stick built to custom fit your unique property both aesthetically and functionally. For those looking for a lower maintenance fencing material, PVC fences provide a clean look without the need for staining, painting, or replacing boards that have become split or warped over time. Holman Fence uses only the best PVC products that have been reinforced with aluminum for durability. Environmentally conscious buyers will be happy to find that many of Holman Fence’s PVC options meet green building standards. Trex fencing is an innovative composite material that is both environmentally friendly and durable, while giving your fence the look of wood without all the maintenance. Made from 95% recycled materials, Trex resists fading, mold, staining and cracking, and can save you hundreds in maintenance fees. Railings are another important service of Holman Fence, and are made custom to your needs. Railings can be made from a multitude of materials, including the increasingly popular cable railings that provide safety and function while creating an aesthetically pleasing, modern feel to any space. Each project is custom planned and completed by Randall and his team, who take into careful consideration the desired function, environment, style, and any unique challenges in order to create a completed product that customers will enjoy for years to come.
