First Fence: Exceptional Service and Craftsmanship Since 1989

At First Fence, we have a long history of providing top-notch fencing services to Chicagoland residents and businesses. Our founder, John Buenz, started the company in 1989 after several years of experience as a fence salesman. Since then, we have become one of the most trusted fencing companies in the area, thanks in large part to our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction.

After John’s retirement, Chris Buenz took over the reins and has continued to build on the solid foundation his father created. Our team of expert installers can handle any type of residential, commercial, or specialty fencing job, and we use only the highest-quality materials to ensure that your fence will last for years to come.

At First Fence, we take pride in our reputation for excellence, and we are dedicated to delivering exceptional results on every project we undertake. Whether you are looking to enhance the security of your property, add privacy, or simply improve the appearance of your outdoor space, we have the knowledge, experience, and expertise to get the job done right.
