Bruce Fencing did a good job for me. Nice natural cedar that weathers well.

fyi--you have to get a city permit to install a fence in Albany. I think it's $50. There are some limitations on height, especially for fencing in front yards.

I would second the Bruce Fence comment - they were very good and came back to straighten a post that was in a soft spot in the lawn.

I was really happy with the work done by Backyard Fence Co - http://www.bydfence.com. Not only was their work solid, they were also the cheapest out of the 3 estimates I received. Some of me relatives have used them as well with equal results.

Long Lumber in Slingerlands. Not the cheapest, but very nice fences. http://www.longlumber.net/

Backyard fence just installed a ceder gate and fence at my house this past weekend. They were inexpensive, easy to work with and the two guys who showed up to do the work where really nice. They also worked around the plants in my yard; lost one Hosta that was sprouting up but could have been a lot worse.

Gotta say I agree: Bruce's Fence

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone!
