In the bustling world of home improvement and construction, few names in the mid-Atlantic region command the same respect as Breakwater Fence. Founded by Jerry Little in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Breakwater Fence has built a stellar reputation over the years as the go-to fence installer for homes, commercial establishments, and state offices alike.

Our journey began modestly enough when Jerry started providing local fence installation services for leading retail giants Sears Roebuck and Montgomery Ward. Jerry's dedication to delivering top-quality fencing solutions soon expanded the business, and by the early 1980s, Breakwater Fence grew to incorporate multiple crews, covering a vast geographical span. From New York to Virginia, New Jersey to Maryland, the Breakwater Fence name became synonymous with superior fencing services, trusted by industrial facilities and state offices alike.

What sets Breakwater Fence apart from others in the business is its unique family-oriented approach. Jerry, a father to nine sons, instilled in them the skill of the trade. Today, five of his sons carry forward his legacy in fencing. This familial continuity embedded in our company gives us an unparalleled edge, translating into a personable, relationship-based approach with our customers that is rare to find in today's commercial world.

Our growth and expansion led us to move to a larger facility in 2011. Currently, Breakwater Fence calls a seven-acre location in Sussex County, Delaware, home. This move enabled us to efficiently manage our operations while fueling our commitment to providing the best fencing solutions in the region. Our focus remains on residential and commercial fencing, serving the people of Delaware with an unwavering commitment to quality, reliability, and exceptional customer service.

As we reflect on our history, we're proud of our humble beginnings as a local fence installer. We're proud of the growth we've achieved, the relationships we've built, and the part we've played in securing homes and businesses across multiple states. But we're most proud of staying true to our roots — to the ethos of unparalleled workmanship, relationship-based service, and the continual pursuit of excellence that Jerry instilled in the company from the very start.

At Breakwater Fence, our past shapes our present, and our present shapes the future. We're excited about what lies ahead and look forward to providing the very best in residential and commercial fencing for years to come. Our story began with a single fence in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and today, Breakwater Fence stands as a testament to Jerry’s passion for quality and craftsmanship, a legacy carried on by his sons and shared with our valued customers across the region.

Our journey of over four decades in the industry, marked by growth, determination, and a commitment to quality, demonstrates our ability to adapt and excel in the ever-evolving world of fencing. From our humble beginnings to our present broad-based operations, our core principle of delivering professional craftsmanship and cultivating long-lasting relationships with our customers continues to reign paramount.

At Breakwater Fence, we are more than just a fence installation company. We are generations of family tradition combined with a commitment to excellence, serving our surrounding communities with dedication and professionalism. As we continue to grow, we carry with us the heart and spirit of the community-focused, family-run business started by Jerry.

Fences may be our product, but trust, dedication, and reliability are our true legacy. And as we move forward, we take these values with us, anchoring Breakwater Fence as a trusted name for all fencing needs across Delaware.
