About Us

Fence by Frank history:

James’ grandfather Frank & father Frank started and ran a commercial fence business in New York. James’ father Frank brought the family business to Florida in 1972, and began schooling James’ in the fence industry at age 7. Each day father and son would serve their community, including their church Nativity Church in Brandon, Florida. Even at a young age James’ knew he loved learning all the intricacies of erecting a beautifully installed fence.

James carried on the family military tradition after high school, and enlisted in the Army’s 82nd Airborne Division and served proudly. Once home father Frank and son James worked together side by side running Fence by Frank. Intermittently, the ever curious, artistic, lover of all things wood, James set out on his own.

He educated himself in the many different kinds of tree woods, fasteners, sealants, terrain leveling, and many more (even home building trusses). He also discovered his love of bringing out the characters of the wood, settling on chainsaw carving sculptures. James created sculptures for many years until his father’s health declined and wished for James to carry on the good name of Fence by Frank. Bringing Fence by Frank into the technology age has not in any way influenced the family honor of providing superior service.
