Fence Materials

  • Grey pressure treated post

    Pressure Treated Wood

    Pressure treated wood is common in residential settings, as it effectively sets boundaries for small children and pets. Pressure treated wood can be stained, painted, or kept natural. Depending on the region, pressure treated wood fencing is made from cedar, pine, redwood, or spruce.

  • Kiln-dried SPF lumber

    Kiln Dried Wood

    Kiln drying is a process that reduces the moisture content of wood. Not only is kiln drying faster than air drying, it helps get rid of fungi and insect infestations that may be present in the wood.

Stain & Sealant

Protect all of your hard work with a sealant or stain. A coat or two will seal and protect your fence, and can also add colour to coordinate with your exterior décor and garden. It is recommended that you apply a sealant or stain to your fence annually to prevent decay due to weather exposure.

Considerations Before Booking Your Installation Appointment 

Weather: Before you book your installation, it is important to know that it is not ideal to install a fence during winter. The best time of the year to install a fence is mid-April to October. This way, the ground will be thawed from the colder months.  

Underground Lines and Irrigation Systems: You are required to locate property lines, underground irrigation systems, and any cable, gas, and utility lines.  

Municipal Zoning Laws:  Check your local zoning laws and get the required permits before you book your installation appointment.  

Find out more about your local municipal zoning laws.
