Whether you’re looking to mark the perimeter of your property, give yourself some privacy or create a dedicated area where your dogs can get some exercise, there’s a unique fencing solution that’s right for you.


Keep reading to learn more about the different types of fences and how to choose the best one for your property.



One of the first things you’ll have to think about is what the fence will be used for. The answer may seem obvious, at first, but your expectations about what function the fence will perform can have a big impact on the type of fence you should choose. For instance, do you want your fence to:

  • Create a privacy barrier between neighbours

  • Increase your home’s value and/or curb appeal

  • Mark off your property

  • Prevent animals from accessing your property

  • Prevent intruders from accessing your property

  • Provide a durable enclosure for a dog run or kennel

  • Require very little maintenance

Once you know exactly what you’re looking for in a fence, you’ll be able to choose the fencing material that corresponds with the function you want.



Whether you’re fencing a residential or commercial property, there a couple of different materials to choose from:

  • Wood is a popular choice for residential properties because it’s easy to install and comes in a variety of colours. However, it requires ongoing maintenance and upkeep.

  • Galvanized chain link fence. Affordable, maintenance-free and highly durable, galvanized chain link is a good option for businesses and homeowners alike. It can be fitted with lattice to provide greater privacy.

  • Vinyl coated chain link comes in a variety of colours and will suit virtually any property. The addition of vinyl can soften the appearance of the chain link.

  • Residential ornamental iron fencing. Ornamental fencing is the best choice if you’re looking for an esthetically pleasing fence to increase property value and boost curb appeal. Iron offers unparalleled strength and beauty that will last for years to come.
