Fences and Post Holes
Good fences make good neighbours.

We've all heard the expression many times and there is a lot of truth in the statement.  Good fences are important.  They are an expression of personal taste and an extension of outside spaces.  They express a visible border between you and your neighbour, they delineate property lines, and they keep pets in and pests out while also safeguarding personal possessions and pool areas.  There are as many different reasons for fences as there are types, designs, and building materials.  Some of the more common materials include wood, wrought iron, aluminum, PVC, vinyl, chain link,  electric and even bamboo. Regardless of the material used though, most residential fences tend to fall into one of two categories:

Picket Fences

Picket fences are most commonly constructed with individual pieces of wood, usually arranged vertically, and cover the area around your yard.  They are classic and reasonably priced depending on the material used.  It is simple to incorporate gates into layouts without making them seem obvious.  Boards may be cut in a wide variety of styles to produce a very unique style and then painted or stained in almost any colour to compliment the design of your home.  

Privacy Fences

Privacy fences are also common and tend to have a similar construction to the picket style with the main difference being that privacy fences are usually much taller in height to create a wall of privacy between your home and the next.  Privacy fence material costs generally are comparable to picket fences but they do require much stronger and deeper posts to support the added weight and the potential external force applied to them such as from strong wind.

Whatever your fence requirements and your specific preferences, we realize that each yard is different and each homeowner has their own reason and purpose in mind for building a fence.  We are happy to assist you in this process with information and options available to you.

We also ensure that all fences built are in compliance with relevant building codes, property lines and use the appropriate footings and structural bases for the chosen style.  We want your fence to be exactly as you imagined it to be...  beautiful, functional and long-lasting.

Post Holes

Digging post holes is not fun.
You know it! And so do we. 

We've drilled so many post holes we've lost track.  When it comes to building a fence, even if you decide to do most of the job yourself, figuring out where to place the post holes and then digging them is one of the least enjoyable parts of the job.  Wouldn't you rather have somebody else do it for you? We've become experts at post holes and we have the proper equipment to get the job done on any property including hard and compacted clay subsoils, rocky substructures, and areas with other natural obstructions.  Give us a call!  Let us help you  with our expertise to get this part of the job done smoothly and in a timely manner.

Then you can get back to work and build your fence!
