“Good Fences Make Good Neighbors.”
—Robert Frost, Mending Wall
Owned, Family Run Fence Company
We are a family-owned, family-run business, and the Dermodys are committed to continue the 50-year tradition of quality. Kevin and Theresa’s hard-earned reputation has been staked out through 35 years of operating their family-owned residential and commercial real estate development and general contracting business. They’ve developed properties on multiple continents and forged a successful project management style based on the commonsense principle of the “Golden Rule”—treat others like you want to be treated.
The team’s knowledge and hands-on involvement is delivered with accuracy, expertise, and a genuine Irish smile. Call us at (941) 921-4659 today for a no-obligation consultation. We’re ready to earn your business!
At Florida Fence, you are always greeted with a smile and a friendly face. But if you are lucky, you might also run into our resident mascot and “Chief Canine Officer”, Picket.
Picket found us just after Thanksgiving 2014, weighing in a 2.2 pounds, breed unknown. He is responsible for countless smiles and laughter throughout the office, as well as the occasional accident on the showroom floor.
He is available for house calls to lend his expert advice on all things puppy and is a favorite of our customers – who ask for him by name. He has grown quite a bit since these photos!
Picket has become our spokesdog, with his own social media accounts and following. He is involved in all things Florida Fence and is representative of what we are all about – family & fences.
If you need a Sarasota or Manatee County fence installed, call us for a free consultation. And ask for Picket – he loves meeting our customers!

Laura is our Phone Boss/Client Relations/Front Desk Reception guru. She always wears a smile that you can even hear over the phone. Even better, she hands out pastries when you walk in our door.
Viji works in Accounts Payable. Sweet, kind, and smart, Viji helps to make sure our external obligations are met in a timely manner.
Colton is responsible for making sure that the warehouse is ready to meet all of our clients’ needs in fencing, from standard PVC to custom designs. He keeps the process humming in order to produce our fencing panels on time.
Rigo is our go-to man for shop production and special installation projects. Rigo has years of experience installing fencing, is a whiz with power tools and shop machinery, and is an ace at creating the best fence panels in the industry.

Conor examines each fence installation upon completion, checking to make sure it meets Florida Fence standards. Like his folks, he is not afraid of hard work, so can often be found making repairs whenever necessary.
