    Our Lumber – “From Forest to Fence”

    Wood continues to be a popular choice for both residential and commercial fencing – providing a natural beauty that can last for decades, with the right maintenance and care. When it comes to wood fencing installation, pressure treated lumber is particularly popular, with its superior protective qualities against the elements, as well as most molds, insects and rot. Premier Fencing offers only a premium grade pressure treated lumber on all of our projects. See “Our Lumber” below for more information.

    Cedar fencing is another popular choice among property owners. Cedar offers a soft, and more natural look, and largely appeals to the overall look of your landscape. With natural properties to fight off insect damage and rot, a cedar fence is an exceptional option and smells great! Cedar fencing is roughly 1.5x-2x the cost of pressure treated fencing in most cases. Those who prefer a natural, environmentally friendly product, or who have a heavier focus on their landscape design tend to go this route.Wood Fencing | Premier Fencing

    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 planned

    At Premier Fencing, we have been Kitchener/Waterloo and the wider Southern Ontario area’s custom wood fence experts for nine decades. We offer the selection and helpful, no-pressure advice installation experience – all backed by a two-year warranty – that has made us a trusted partner to generations of homeowners and businesses.

    Different Wood Fencing Styles

    While there are a wide variety of fencing boarding styles, they tend to fall into three different main categories:

    Solid:

    This contained fencing provides nearly complete privacy, typically employed for swimming pools and property-line demarcation. Our most economical option available and a popular pick among homeowners. Keep in mind- generally one side of this fence will show structural rails, and the other with vertical boards. Each customer will have their own personal preference on this. Over time you will see small 1/8” gaps develop between the fence boards allowing for air flow into your yard.

    Board on Board (Good neighbor fence):

    This type of fence has alternating, and overlapping boards on both sides. Board spacing is generally kept at 3-1/2” but for additional privacy this spacing can be tightened to 2” or even 1-1/2”. This style makes for a good neighbor’s fence, if you decide to share the costs, as both sides of this style fence look identical.

    Imitation board & Batten:

    This style is great for keeping children or pets enclosed in the yard, while clearly defining property lines and providing a distinctive look. Our most popular style to date- providing complete privacy, with overlapping boards kept to one side of the fence. This fence style provides additional privacy and an added depth to the fence line. Keep in mind- generally one side of this fence will show structural rails, and the other with vertical boards. Each customer will have their own personal preference on this.

    Evolution of Wood Fencing Installation

    The history of fences goes back to the beginnings of human civilization. The Ancient Greeks and Romans, for example, would build fences around newly conquered lands, as way of asserting ownership. The earliest settlers in North America also relied on wood fencing installation for their land claims. At the same time, many First Nations, especially in the eastern part of the continent, enclosed their villages in wooden stockades.

    Today, custom wood fences are still used to mark property lines. But they also supply privacy, or semi-privacy, keep children and pets enclosed and safe inside property lines, and come in a wide range of styles that add a special visual appeal to your home.

    How Long Does Wood Fencing Installation Take?

    Of course, the length of time it takes for wood fencing installation varies according to how big the fence is, how many hands are involved, etc. But on average, customers should allot 3-5 days for the project: one for setting of the posts, 2-3 to allow for the concrete to cure and a final day for hanging of the fencing and gates.

    While a custom wood fence can be added to your property year-round, people usually think of this type of project during the warmer months, when they are most likely to enjoy its use in the outdoor spaces. Since summer is busy season for wood fencing installation done by professionals, it’s always wise to book your project early

    Asking Permission for Your New Wood Fencing Project

    Our team of professionals will help guide you through all municipal and regional fencing bylaws. Most cities and towns have fence regulations you should be made aware of, especially when working around pools and corner lots. Besides the official permission, it’s good practice, and nice courtesy, to get the blessing of your neighbours. While the saying goes, “Good fences make good neighbours,” they also lead to nasty disputes and even legal proceedings if you are not on the same page.

    Also, if you go to your neighbours with reasons and intentions for a building a custom wood fence, not only might they give you a thumbs up, they could also decide to share in the costs of the fence-building project, which we see quite often.Wood Fencing Premier Fencing

    Know the Limits of Your Wood Fencing Installation

    Before starting your fencing project, it’s always wise to have a good understanding of where your property lines are. With a good land survey on hand, our knowable team is able to map out and locate property lines on most fence projects. Before any work begins we always have our customer sign off on final placement of all fence line and gates. Also it’s a very good idea to check for the location of private underground utility lines, this would include pool pumps, sprinkler lines, etc. Premier Fencing will handle all public utility requests for your project.

    Testimonials

    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!
