    As Southern Ontario’s leading source for affordable, high quality, fence and deck solutions, Premier Fencing can quickly manufacture a reliable, strong support system, for any given project. As a growing family business starting as Boyer Lumber and continuing to expand. We now also now offering a broad range of high-quality helical piles, helical piers and screw pile connectors in a variety of sizes, Premier Fencing can tackle any deck or patio application you require.

    What is Helical Pile Installation?

    Designed to ensure maximum support, helical piles are a steel screw-in piling and ground-anchoring solution, used to underpin structures ranging from homes, decks and patios. The hollow shaft, cut diagonally at the end for ground penetration, has a large helix attached to the lower exterior, allowing it to be screwed into the ground.Helical pile installation has changed the way foundations are built, replacing conventional poured and cast concrete footings. A low speed hydraulic auger is used to screw helical piers into the earth, using exact torque to achieve desired load capacities. Premier Fencing uses cutting edge, digital, systems, which allow us to provide a digital printout of each and every helical pile footing. Our operators are able to view live data directly from the cab allowing for a true torque reading, and consistency on every project.

    All of our helical piles are signed off on, upon completion, by our licensed and highly skilled installers.

    The Evolution of Helical Pier Installation

    Screw piles date back to the early 1800s, and were used extensively in the foundations of lighthouses and harbor piers. Over the years, helical piles have found increasingly widespread use, including telecommunications, roads, houses and decks – wherever speedy, cost-effective installations are required, or when the work is near existing buildings. Manufacturers of modern helical piles claim they have a long-life expectancy – more than 150 years. In many cases helical piles will far outlast any deck, they can even be removed and re-installed  on your next project.

    Other common uses for screw pile foundations include:

    • Fence posts and flag posts
    • Hot tub base support
    • Patios
    • Wheelchair access ramps
    • Retaining walls
    • Streetlight bases
    • Highway sign bases
    • School portables
    • Pipeline support
    • Solar farms
    • Boardwalks
    • Power transmission structures
    • Slope stabilization

    Helical Piers are Quick to Install

    Helical piles have the built-in advantage of rapid installation as there is no need to mobilize specialized and messy excavation and concrete equipment. Their design allows for maximum use of soil capacity and immediate loading capabilities. The screw piles thread into the ground, providing you with an installation that is fast and secure.

    Limited Space is Required

    Helical pier installation is ideal for small areas, close to other structures, because they are drilled straight into the earth, using modern equipment. Our machines only need 39” of clearance – roughly the size of a standard backyard gate opening.

    Installing helical piles is landscape friendly. Helical piles are screwed into the ground and do not require any messy concrete or soil clean up. When installing your pile supports, our Premier Fencing crews always take care to preserve your landscape and do our best to leave it as it was before we arrived.Helical Piles

    Helical Piles Provide Strong Decking Support

    Our Premier Fencing has been formally trained and licensed, we can confidently plan structural layouts of helical piles, for any deck or patio project. We can employ pile-to-structure connectors that are easily height adjusted for jobs. Our deck footing and decking supports provide the best foundation, bar none, for your new structure.Helical Piles

    With the capability to begin the helical pile installation and start construction on the same day helps to speed up project timelines. Not having to remove displaced earth or deal with concrete also saves time and money.

    Advantages of Our Helical Pier Installation

    Besides being a cost-effective solution, there is a mirage of benefits to using steel helical pile foundations, opposed to digging out foundations:

    • The use of specialized equipment allows for quick installation
    • Helical piles will not heave, crack or sink due to frost
    • No excavation is required with.
    • Helical piles far surpass load and carrying capacities of conventional concrete
    • The use of concrete is not needed
    • Ready to build on immediately
    • Environmental impact is minimized
    • Small footprint on building site

    Only Well-Engineered Helical Piles

    Before beginning any project, we ensure that the screw piles, deck footings and deck supports being used are well suited for your project. We work directly with the manufacturer and ensure their engineering design and specifications and being met and can cope with the most challenging loads and conditions.

    We use screw piles that are engineered to meet the Ontario Building Code, in case building permits are required for your job. Working torque-monitoring systems, we can ensure that the piles we install have high torque and load-bearing capacity, and won’t sink further into the ground later, unlike convention concrete footings. We can also provide site specific engineering for your project if required by your township.

    Helical Pile Installation Experts You Can Trust

    When choosing to move forward with your next project, invest your time and money into a company that will get the job done right. Our team at Premier Fencing ensure that our screw piles are buried deep, so the helix portion of the pile is anchored beneath the frost line. Our long experience in helix pile installation for decks ensures a safe, sound structure, backed by a two-year warranty.

    Worked with Todd on the design and scheduling and Tim came in to install the elevated deck with an enclosed, water proof, storage room below it. End result is a fantastic deck, incredibly well made. Tim’s attention to detail and pride of workmanship is very apparent and greatly appreciated. Premier also installed the “wrought iron” fence around the property a couple of weeks earlier which we are also extremely pleased with. Would highly recommend.

    We had a fairly large backyard project in our new home. The quotation and design was completed using information of our new lot well prior to moving in. Within 3 weeks of moving in our fence was done, ahead of projected time and exactly on budget.

    The crew from initial quotation to final construction were incredibly kind and courteous. Their workmanship was immaculate and the cleanliness was pristine. I am yet to find a nail after the build has been completed!

    Stop searching and reach out to the team. These are the ones!

    We were very happy with the customer service we received by Premier Fencing on our deck project. Everything from the initial quote to the final project build were delivered on time. I had a lot of questions throughout the process. James encouraged me to ask as many as I needed and responded in a timely manner. He was happy to price out different options for us and was not pushy at all. Tim installed the deck efficiently and did a quality job. They cleaned up after themselves when the project was done and did minimal damage to the yard. Everyone was very friendly and professional. We would definitely recommend working with them.

    Had fence posts that were starting to lean over pretty bad. Dan provided a quick turn around on a quote to replace the posts.. Michael and Alex came out and did a good job replacing 8 – 6×6 posts. Would reccomend for sure!

    Premier Fencing & Backyard Solutions just finished a deck install on our bungalow condo. We were more than impressed from the first meeting with Todd to the building of the deck. Todd kept us very well informed from beginning to end. Tim the deck builder was amazing! The quality of his work is top notch. Our neighbours have also commented on Tim’s workmanship and quality. It was a pleasure doing business with this company. Colin & Debbie

    Our old deck was in need of replacement. After careful consideration and asking around I was directed to Premier Fencing. I wanted a company that had been around for a while. I soon discovered the roots of this company date back in the KW area over many family generations with many positive comments.
    Our new deck rests on modern Helical Screw Piles that protrude well below the frost line, installed by Premier. We opted to use composite deck planks that do not require any finishing.
    Since our deck doubles as a spring and summer outdoor living room we also opted to have a Pergola supplied and installed by Premier as well.
    Our experience with Premier has been top notch. The materials, and workmanship were excellent!

    A quality, professional company from the quote to the post crew to the fence hangers and the touch-ups. Add friendly office staff and I have no choice but to leave a 5 star review!! The fence is so nice that we may have to get them to update our deck in the future.

    Had Premier Fencing replaced our fence that was damaged in a wind storm. My wife and I are very impressed with the professional job and quality of their work. Dan and Kimberly did excellent work. Would recommend this company if you need Fencing and decking done.

    Like most home owners, we took plenty of time researching who we wanted to install our new fence and deck. In the end, we had four different companies quote the job and we are very happy that we chose Premier Fencing and Backyard Solutions. We had them take on our deck installation last summer, and have them lined up to replace our fence in the spring.

    From the initial point of contact through the design and quoting process to completion, our sales representative Paul was a pleasure to deal with. He was communicative, professional, open to our input and timely with all his communications. He’s an excellent representative for the company, and our comfort level with Paul was certainly a factor in our decision. He listened to our design ideas and priorities and shared his input, ultimately helping us make the best decisions for our backyard.

    Our installation was done by Ron, who undeniably takes pride in what he does. If Paul “talks the talk”, Ron is definitely the guy for the walk. As my wife put it “he’s very methodical. You can tell he’s been doing this for ever!”. Unlike some other “professionals” we’ve had in to work on the house, there were no expletives… no perplexed “what am I going to do now??” looks. No untimely disappearances for hours or days, with things half completed. No… Ron showed up, did his thing and left. I felt like Ron was working as if it was his backyard, not mine. Again, it’s evident that this isn’t his first rodeo, and his workmanship speaks for itself. Suffice to say, I’ll insist that RON to do the rest of the work we need done.

    All in all, our experience with Premier Fencing and Backyard Solutions was fantastic and we are very happy we decided to hire them. They will be involved with any other outdoor construction projects we undertake.

    Premier was awesome! We presented them with the challenge of building a fence to secure our pool and dog, but still have the look of a split rail farm fence. The finished product was beyond our expectations!!

    Dustyn and Dan were great to work with – professional, competent and pleasant, taking pride in their work.

    If you’re looking to build a new fence, Premier should be who you call first!

    Amazing to deal with from start of project to the end. They were very easy to work with and were great to help me get the deck and fence I had envisioned. I’m so pleased with my new deck and fence. I added a gazebo as well from Premier Fence which was the perfect touch for my perfect deck. I highly recommend Premier Fencing ! You won’t be disappointed. I dealt with both the fence crew and the deck team. All staff working on my project were friendly and their work was outstanding.Thank you for making my backyard beautiful!

    Very happy with the entire experience. Workmanship and quality was exactly as expected. Sales support was amazing (Thank you Todd).

    We just recently had a second story deck installed with Premier Fencing & Backyard Solutions and are very happy with the final result. They were able to tie the design into our pre-existing lower deck very nicely. The cost was competitive with several other quotes we received and actually came in on the lower end. We would definitely recommend Premier in the future!

    Josh and Brad came out in the middle of March to dig the holes for the posts while there was still snow on the ground. Nonetheless, they worked quickly and effectively.

    Ron was our contractor and did an excellent job! He was very easy to engage with and checked in daily to see if we had any questions or concerns. He was very open to any minor adjustments we had and ensured everything was just the way we wanted it. His craftsmanship and attention to all the fine details was excellent and he took great care in making sure the workspace/yard was cleaned up of all debris before leaving. I was blown away at how quickly it all came together. From the filling of the posts to completion it took less than a week.

    We can’t wait to enjoy this new space for many years to come!

    Service technician Ron was customer friendly and did a great job. Happy with the new fence.

    After numerous quotes, we selected Premier to replace the fence between us an our next door neighbour in the fall of 2020. We are all VERY happy with the outcome and would recommend Premier in a heartbeat. Every single person we work with was professional and friendly – Nic on the quote, Dan J, and Josh on the teardown and Ryan and Kenny on the construction and Terralyn in the back office. Keep up the great work!
