    Our Lumber – “From Forest to Fence”

    Premier Fencing recently began the manufacturing of their own branded line of lumber and created Boyer Lumber Co. in 2016. With our new process and partners in place, we are able to deliver consistency and quality from start to finish – “From forest to fence”. We now work directly with mills across Canada, allowing us to provide you with the highest quality lumber available, at a competitive price.

    Our fencing and decking comes directly from mills in Western Canada. 100% Lodgepole Pine, kiln dried and shipped by covered carrier to our treatment plant.

    Lodgepole Pine is a premium western species which carries many benefits:

    • Smaller and tighter knots
    • Glassy finish
    • Straighter grain
    • Greater CA (treatment) absorption meaning a deeper finish and longer lasting


    Kiln dried lumber has a number of benefits including:

    • No mold
    • Dimensionally more stable
    • Will not explode into cracks and splits when exposed to sun
    • Result in a better finish when plannedWood Decks 2

    The Benefits of Wood Decks

    Installing a deck in your backyard is one of the easiest ways to increase your living space and it is a great investment in your home’s equity. Wood deck installations have a natural look and feel all their own. Less expensive than a composite or vinyl decking material, they can give you long service with the right maintenance and care. As the leading wood deck builder in Kitchener, Waterloo, and the surrounding areas, we have vast experience using many different building materials in our construction. Let us help you create your very own beautiful backyard retreat

    Cedar Decking

    Cedar is as durable as many other types of wood with its natural capabilities to resist moisture, rot and infestations of insects. As one of the top natural choices for deck building, this wood actually changes its moisture levels to match the atmosphere. Moisture is what often causes wood to warp and crack, especially in a place of climate extremes like Canada. Using cedar can reduce maintenance issues and add years to a deck’s life. It smells great too!Wood Decks

    Pressure-Treated Decking

    Pressure-treated decking is rot and insect resistant, and less expensive than cedar. Its lowest priced versions can be prone to shrinking and warping, It’s better to use higher-grade pressure treated wood. On all projects, pressured treated lumber is often used to build deck structure and supports, because of its durability and strength.Pressure Treated Decking

    Our Wood Deck Installation Process

    At Premier Fencing, our wood deck installation process is fast, reliable, efficient and cost effective. Whether you are looking for cedar decking, pressure-treated decking or hardwood decking, the sky is the limit. We begin with a free, onsite consultation, assessing the space and speaking with you to share your backyard vision.

    Afterwards we provide a free, no-obligation estimate for the work, including all wood deck costs and labour. The deck will be custom designed for your special requirements and then built with the quality and speed that has earned the Boyer family its reputation as premium wood deck builder for over 90 years.

    Once your deck is finished, our professional crew will ensure the work area is tidied and returned to its original, pristine condition. Our wood deck installations are backed by a two-year warranty that will provide you peace of mind.Wood Decks

    What to Ask Your Wood Deck Builder

    A reputable wood deck builder should be open, transparent and answer all questions honestly. For peace of mind, they should also have long experience in the field and be prepared to provide customer testimonials and references, if desired.

    Here are some of the things you should ask a prospective contractor, before signing a contract:

    • Will you provide a real quotation? – Some wood deck installation companies provide “estimates” instead of “quotations.” Extra charges will often come up along the way and the final bill can end up higher than the estimate. A quotation should reflect the amount on the final bill.
    • Is a deposit required? – A reputable builder will not often ask for a large deposit for wood deck costs upfront. They have the financial means to purchase and stock materials and then invoice at the successful completion of the project, when everyone is happy.
    • Do you have the proper insurance and licensing? – A reputable wood deck installation professional has the necessary insurance and licensing to conduct business. A handyman doing jobs on the side might not have the insurance to cover someone getting hurt on the job, or the professional standing to get a work permit.
    • Do you provide a warranty? – A good wood deck company backs their work with a warranty. A material warranty will vary in duration and terms and should last at least two years, covering two cycles of the four seasons.

    Discover what our previous customers say about our quality work.

    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!
