Beyond the Holidays: Year-Round Community Engagement Shines Bright

2024 New Year, shiny fairy lights, and fireworks all in gold

As the holiday season winds down, many of us are left feeling the bittersweet mix of nostalgia for all the shared joy and cheer and a twinge of relief that we can finally slow down and catch our breath. However, as we pack up our decorations and prepare for a new year, it’s important to remember that the spirit of giving and coming together doesn’t have to end once Christmas lights are taken down or New Year’s confetti is swept away. 

Community engagement is not just a theme reserved for December – it should shine bright throughout the year. The power of small acts of kindness and working towards common goals ignites a sense of unity within our local communities that transcends any single holiday. 

At A to Z Quality Fencing & Structures, our business provides our customers with the best fencing possible. This accomplishment is possible thanks to our incredible team and the philosophy to leave everything better in our personal and professional lives. As we look back on 2023, we’d like to reflect on our connections and their positive impacts on our communities.

Ways A to Z Quality Fencing Gets Involved

At A to Z Quality Fencing, we’re not just fence builders. We’re also proud community members who love to give back. From donations to volunteering, we believe in putting our time and resources towards supporting the neighborhoods we serve. 

As experts in our craft, we’re also constantly seeking opportunities to educate other fence contractors about the importance of high-quality, no-mess, no-dig fence installation and how it can improve installation, customer experience, and profitability. Whether participating in trade shows or speaking at local events, we’re always eager to share our knowledge. 

When you work with A to Z Quality Fencing, you’re not just getting top-notch craftsmanship; you’re supporting a team invested in bettering the community. Here are the 2023 community engagement highlights for A to Z Quality Fencing:

Prayer Garden

prayer garden fence construction - our biggest and most important community engagement

The construction of a prayer garden in Owatonna, MN, is a cause close to the hearts of A to Z Quality Fencing. It provides an opportunity to bring more people to God and unite the community to create a peaceful, serene space for prayer and reflection.

The company has proactively coordinated and obtained material donations from our vendors for the garden’s fencing. When the project is complete, A to Z Quality Fencing will have installed 1700 linear feet of aluminum fencing around the perimeter. Thanks to the donation of A to Z Quality Fencing’s service time, the prayer garden will be a haven for all to cherish. Completing this project in 2024 will be a milestone in the community. A to Z Quality Fencing is proud to play a part in its success.

Washington County Fair

Attending community events can be a great way to get involved with your neighbors and support local businesses. Last year, A to Z Quality Fencing had a booth at the Washington County Fair. They used the opportunity to interview and highlight other small businesses and vendors on their social media platforms. In addition, A to Z Quality Fencing supports 4-H and FFA by highlighting the kids on social media and buying their prize-winning animals for other community events and team-building opportunities.

This year, we worked with our local butcher/meat processor to split the meat between shop team members and a family in need. In addition, we reserved a lamb and pig for use at our Customer Appreciation Day.

Customer Appreciation Day

If you’re in the Hartford, WI area, mark your calendars and head to A to Z Quality Fencing’s headquarters for their annual Customer Appreciation Day! Held on October 7, 2023, this community fun day is not just for past and potential customers, but it’s also for 4-H students and families, contractors, DIYers, and everyone who supports A to Z. With a bags (cornhole) tournament that offers cash prizes, a lamb and pig roast, bouncy houses for the kids, and more – this is a community event that you can’t miss! Watch our social media for an announcement on our 2024 event date, and come on down and join in on the fun!

Team Building

Team building is critical to success at A to Z Quality Fencing. Our company believes in developing leaders in all areas of life, whether in our communities, businesses, or personal lives. We hold weekly leadership meetings to ensure all team members grow their leadership skills. And it doesn’t stop there- we also know the value of building relationships and having fun as a team. That’s why we host an annual team-building event in Wisconsin Dells for all team members and their families. 

Year-round, we ensure our installation teams feel supported by providing them with hot meals (breakfast and lunch!) on the job. To show our gratitude, we give each team member a Thanksgiving kit with a turkey and all the fixings. At A to Z Quality Fencing, we believe in investing in our team members to create a solid and successful team.

Growing the Industry

As the fence installation industry continues to evolve, we are proud to offer a solution that is the future of fence installation. Our No Mess, No Dig Fence Installation has gained recognition and praise for its innovation and efficiency. Our owner, Aaron Smith, recently presented this revolutionary installation method at the first Fence Business Conference. His dedication and passion for the industry led him to travel and train other fence professionals, sharing his knowledge and expertise. By doing so, he is helping other fence businesses grow. Working together can propel the fence industry forward and create more profitable and thriving communities.

The Benefits of Year-Round Community Engagement

Community engagement is more than just a once-a-year event. It is a continuous process that can benefit both the community and the individuals involved. Year-round community engagement can strengthen relationships between neighbors and build a sense of belonging. It can also help identify and address community issues, improve safety, and increase access to resources and opportunities. Consistent engagement fosters innovation and collaboration, allowing individuals to share their skills and expertise. Participating in community events and activities throughout the year can positively impact and help create a stronger, more vibrant community.

Looking forward to 2024

The benefits of year-round community engagement cannot be overstated. From building a stronger sense of community and connection to supporting local businesses and improving the quality of life for residents, the positive impact is undeniable. At A to Z Quality Fencing, we understand the importance of actively participating in our community and strive to make a difference through various initiatives. Whether volunteering to build fencing for a prayer garden or attending events like the Washington County Fair, we are committed to giving back. 

But our involvement continues beyond there. We also support other businesses in our area and prioritize team building within our company. However, we always seek new ways to connect with our community and would love your input. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Let’s work together to create a thriving, united community that benefits us all. Thank you for reading and being part of this journey with us!

Name
Premium Rails

Much like our fence pickets, our company takes care to only build with rails with minor defects. Taking the time to use premium fence materials helps ensure your family can enjoy the security and privacy of your new fence for years to come.

Decorative Details

Our team is committed to going the extra mile in every detail of your fence project.

Customize your fence project by asking about our add-ons we offer: decorative post caps, trim, and custom railings.

Stronger Posts

We understand that your fence is only as strong as your posts. This is why we take great care to use the strongest posts, free of defects. We not only offer heavy-duty wood posts but our no-mess, no-dig installation adds a galvanized steel post inside the wooden post for an even stronger post.

All high-quality posts are built to ensure that your fence stands strong for years.

Better Fence Pickets

We build with only the best fence pickets. These are not the typical fence pickets anyone can buy from the local big-box stores. We have partnered with suppliers to provide the highest quality wood fencing materials.

Modern, Sleek Design

A to Z Quality Fencing’s proprietary Modern Aluminum Fence features one of the most modern, sleek designs on the market. These fences are long-lasting and bring the best of A to Z’s vinyl (including simulated wood finishes) and aluminum products together, allowing for custom fabrication of modern, industrial, privacy fencing.

Stronger Top Rails

The Modern Aluminum Fence top rails are routed into the posts creating an even stronger fence installation! The U channels are screwed to the frame and the entire fence is quickly assembled on-site using our no-mess, no-dig installation.

Stronger Fencing

Compared to wood, vinyl fencing is much stronger. Vinyl fencing is flexible and durable, which helps vinyl out-perform wood fencing in windy conditions and with environmental exposure to UV rays and weather.

Versatile Inlay Options

Want to create a super durable fence that’s as unique as you? With a Modern Aluminum Fence, you can pair A to Z Quality Fencing’s commercial aluminum fence with the inlay that best fits your style. Our vinyl inlay is available in 9 colors including various simulated wood tones, so you can create the exact look you want.

Durable Frame

Modern Aluminum Fence posts are composed of galvanized steel posts covered by our commercial-grade aluminum with its superior powder coat finish to create a stronger, longer-lasting fence that is more than weather-resistant – it will not rust with exposure to the elements!

Easy to Clean

Vinyl fencing can be cleaned easily with a regular garden hose. If you get a little mildew from moisture or shady conditions, you can use a mild dish soap and then spray off the fence with a garden hose. Vinyl fences are very easy to clean, making them a great option for low-maintenance fencing.

More Options Available

Vinyl fencing is available in a wide variety of configurations to match any property, home, or purpose. Iconic, white vinyl picket fences give a feel of classic Americana with that white-picket-fence-style. Darker vinyl fences can be installed to make a space look more elegant or modern. From short picket to tall privacy, vinyl fencing can be designed to enhance your backyard or business.

Strict Standards

All our aluminum fence meets BOCA (Building Officials and Code Administrators) code. These strict standards ensure your fencing is sturdy, durable, and non-climbable, protecting your property no matter if you are fencing in a business, backyard, or swimming pool!

The BOCA health and safety codes are critical when installing fencing around a swimming pool because they prevent children from getting over, under, or through our aluminum fencing.

Beautiful Vinyl Fences

Vinyl fences are a bright, bold fence choice. Available in a variety of colors, vinyl fencing can be installed in a many configurations to help you enhance the beauty of your property. And, because vinyl isn’t as porous as wood, vinyl fences retain their color and finish much longer than wood fencing so you can enjoy your fence for years to come.

Superior Powder Coating

Our superior powder coating provides a smooth, durable finish, more resistant to chips, scratches, fading, rust, and corrosion than other finishes. This long-lasting, low-maintenance finish results from our application and curing processes that melt the powder particles to create a smooth, continuous, and permanent bond to the aluminum.

In addition, our paint finish meets AAMA (American Architectural Manufacturers Association) specifications.

Custom Fabrication

You’re steps away from a one-of-a-kind aluminum fence made just for you! Our high-quality aluminum fencing comes from our sister company A to Z Fence Supplies. We assemble each aluminum fence to meet your unique design requirements, including color, finials, puppy panels, O-rings, and custom top edges.

Stronger Posts & Hardware

A benefit of choosing our team to install your chain link fence is that we use only the most durable posts and hardware.

Chain-link fences are known for being the last fences standing during hurricanes, tornados, and other severe weather events.

Unparalleled Durability

The weakest point of any fence is where the post comes out of the ground. Our no-mess, no-dig installation process pounds a galvanized steel post into the soil. Then we slide an aluminum post over the galvanized steel posts. A steel post is stronger at ground level than an aluminum post.

Our high-quality aluminum fence, combined with our no-mess, no-dig installation process, creates a highly durable aluminum fence.

Top Quality Rails

We pride ourselves on going the extra mile to ensure your investment is built to last.

Adding a top rail to your chain link fence project creates an extra level of durability and security.

Premium Chain Link Mesh

Our chain link mesh offers a high level of security for residential, commercial, and industrial properties.

Manufactured with you in mind to provide you with security and beauty at the same time.

Nice Finishing Caps

Our team prides themselves on putting in the little details that make your fence unique to you. Ask your representative about adding premium finishing caps to your Chain Link fence project.
