I suggest that you send them a letter by Registered Mail.

In the letter set out the facts. Give them a deadline for either making all the repairs or removing the fence and providing you with a full refund.

Tell them if they fail to comply you will commence legal proceedings without further notice to them and then will be seeking damages, interest and your costs as well as the full refund.

If they fail to comply you can then sue them in Small Claims Court and can self-represent. If it gets that far and you find you need some help as you go through the process you can always post on this site again and I can assist you further.

Does that help as a starting point?

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
