Got a vinyl fence installed the other day, noticed that there were large gaps between the bottom of the fence and the ground (anywhere from 4-12 inches). Apparently, they took the dirt that they dug out and used it to cover the gaps (they racked it instead of stepping it).
I'm getting ready to have a HUGE dispute with the company tomorrow - will they say this is okay because the fence was on a hill? Don't know why they destroyed the grass that was underneath the fence - maybe the grass is there but the dirt that is all over it hides it. When you push the dirt away, you see the gaps - neat trick huh?
For the gate, they said that they had to make the two posts level so they can argue that they had to dig under the gate to make the ground even there - I can possibly see that argument.
Also, for another part of the fence, they stepped it down a hill, but then used dirt again to hide the "holes" between the bottom of the fence and the ground. Is that normal? Aren't fences supposed to prevent animals from coming in?
Thanks - getting ready for a huge fight - any advice would be appreciated!
