Why choose us

Experienced crews, led by carpenters with 20+ years experience.

Calgary trusts us to build beautiful, functional, long-lasting fences and gates. We never compromise on quality.

No underbidding

Your quoted price is the real price.

It's a common tactic for some fence building companies to offer a low quote to get you in the door, then come to you mid-project with "surprise" expenses. That's not our style.

No cherry-picking

Every project is important.

You can expect the same level of service on your $1,000 or $10,000 project. Your project won't be bumped because "something better" came along. We treat you with respect no matter the size of your job.

Quality materials

Hand picked lumber and quality fasteners.

We make sure all lumber is straight and true at the time of installation. All structural attachments are made with anti-rust treated screws which provide superior strength and durability. We also use screws to mount all fence boards where most companies use nails or even staples to finish faster, but unfortunately leave behind an inferior fence.

Solid workmanship

We prefer to overbuild for a fence that lasts.

We dig down 42" to 48" and pour concrete for every post. We always install an arbour on gates to ensure your frame remains stable and the latch stays aligned.

Quality guaranteed

You get a workmanship warranty.

We build for longevity and quality, but if a problem comes up we'll fix any workmanship issues with your new fence.

What's the process?

Fence building 101.

We coordinate all aspects of your project from start to finish so your new fence is completed quickly.

Calculate materials

Make sure you have the right amount of quality lumber.

Wasting materials isn't good for anyone, and nobody wants unnessessary costs or to wait around for more supplies. We'll calculate the exact amount of material and always quality check our supply.

Locate utilites

Avoid water, gas, and electical lines.

To make sure we don't run into any utilities when digging we request a report of their locations on your property. This can take some time to be marked out, and is only valid for a set amount of time, so we coordinate it with your planned start date.

Mark property lines

Mark, measure, and plot your line.

Depending who owns the fence, we have to be very careful about marking where to build. Right on the property line if it's shared with a neighbour, or 100% on your property if it isn't. We take measurements based off your Real Property Report if needed.

Set posts

Make sure posts are plumb and true.

We like to anchor every post in concrete, not just the terminal ones. And dig at least 42" deep, thank you very much, to make sure your fence lasts many years!

Panels up, clean up

This is the fun part.

Install the frame between each set of posts and get the panels up according to the design. Custom build and mount each gate, install the latches, and tidy the site.


Frequently asked questions

Your questions answered.


When is the best time to build a fence in Calgary?
In Alberta, depending how long winter holds on, our fence building season runs from April up to the end of November. We tend to have more availability in the spring when the season is just getting started!
How high can I build a fence in Calgary?
Residential fences in Calgary can be up to 6'6" in the backyard and 4' in the front yard. Gate arbours can be as high as 8'2".
Who owns the fence between two houses?
Ah yes, it's a question of where the property line is! If the fence is right on the line, both parties are responsible for it. If it's fully on your property, you are the responsible party. You can find your property line using your Real Property Report.
Do I need a permit to build a fence in Calgary?
There is no permit required to build a fence in Calgary as long as it is under the maximum allowed height.
What is the lifespan of a fence in Calgary?
We build a high-quality, long lasting product. You can expect to get 20 to 30 years out of our wood fences. To prolong the life of your fence it's a good idea to put a coat of paint or stain on every few years.
Can you build a fence in my area?
From Arbour Lake to Walden, we serve all of the communities within Calgary city limits.
Can you remove my old fence before you build a new one?
Yep, for sure! We can take care of removal and disposal of your existing fence.

Have a look around your community for inspiration, or check out Pinterest for some new ideas! Front yards, back yards, side yards, gates, privacy screens, decks, pergolas, gates, pet fencing & areas – no problem, we are happy to discuss your individual project needs.


What is the cost per foot to build a new fence in Calgary?
Our cost to build a fence in Calgary with pressure-treated wood and 4x4” posts is about $45 per linear foot at 4’ tall, or $50 per foot at 6’ tall. On the higher end of the spectrum, a 6’ tall cedar fence with extra-large 6x6” support posts is closer to $70 per linear foot. Of course cost changes depending on your choice of material and style preferences.
What is included in my quoted project cost?
Everything! Utility locates, digging, setting-posts, all labour and materials – everything is included in your quoted price. A common tactic is for builders to offer a very low bid to get in the door on your project, then once you’re committed, to charge for surprises along the way. This is not our style - your quoted price is your final price, and we will not come to you with any additional charges mid-project.
How do I get an estimate for my fence project?
Please book a time in the calendar using the fence calculator. Our project manager will meet you to measure your fence and discuss your design before sending a quote for your approval.
What is the most affordable material and design?
For balancing cost, attractiveness and durability, we recommend using pressure-treated wood and 4x4 posts in the Bastion or Fortress style.

Materials and design

What materials can you build a fence with?
We work with a variety of materials including cedar, pressure-treated, and composite. Wooden fences are always a popular and attractive option, providing a natural, long-lasting barrier at an affordable price. Cedar or pressure-treated woods are durable choices ensuring your fence has a long life.
Can you build a cedar fence?
Absolutely! Plus cedar is a beautiful choice for fencing because it is naturally resistant to rot, has a consistent grain and color, ages nicely, and of course you can't beat the nice smell.
What is pressure-treated wood?
Pressure-treated woods are coated and then subjected to high pressure to infuse rot-resistant compounds into the cells of the wood. Brown-treated pine mimics the look of cedar while being more cost effective. Legislation has eliminated the use of dangerous chemicals in the treatment process making it a safe choice.
Can you pre-build a fence?
If you have a small project, maybe a panel or two for ornamental uses, a pre-built panel is a relatively easy do-it-yourself project. For anything larger though, it's actually easier to build from scratch. A full 6' panel is surprisingly heavy and difficult to transport, so we build everything in place.
How long does it take to complete a fence?
Once the project has started, things move pretty fast. A typical backyard fence takes us about two days to complete. On larger projects, you can expect a build rate of approximately 70 linear feet per day once the posts are set.
Is lumber included in your warranty?
Our one year warranty is for workmanship and not lumber as it is temperamental and liable to change outside. We always quality check the lumber supply used for your project to minimize the chances of warping. You can always give us a call if there's an issue with your fence, we'll do our best to help.
