NEWS RELEASE (DP) – Topeka, KS. Nine months after the installation of over 800’ of 8’ high Trex Seclusions at the Walgreens in southwest Topeka, reviews are pouring in. “You wouldn’t believe the compliments,” said Tom Kent, owner of Kent Fence Co. “It’s the first time we worked with the product. It’s also the first major job in the Topeka that includes Trex. But we suspect this will really lead to a lot more, especially with all of the homeowners who see it driving by. Any fence that can hold up in the 80-90 mph Kansas winds like this (Trex) is really a good product.”
Kent Fence Co. is a family owned and operated business that has been in business since 1977. Kent prides itself that there is no job too small or too large. Tom credits the combination of residential fencing and commercial projects which have allowed our company to grow to about 380 jobs a year.
“Walgreens was not an easy installation. It starts on top of a retaining wall, with downhill slope,” said Kent. “We figured out how to work with it and it came out really good. Everyone involved is really happy with it.”
Tom is one of five Kents who have contributed to the company’s history. Presently, Mark Kent is the Sales and Operations Manager and David Kent is the Senior Working Foreman.
The success of this project bodes well for both Trex Fencing and Kent Fence going forward in Tom’s estimation. For more information on this project and on Trex fencing from Kent Fence Co., contact the company at: (785) 233-2291.
