8 Places for Fencing in Vancouver

By AK Timber in Outdoor Design

Fences are one of those things that just takes a little bit of stress off of you. They help with security, keep your young children from running onto the street if you take your eyes off of them, allow you to let your dog out in the yard without having to worry, and even keeps lose animals and people from getting into your yard if you have a pool.

Still, fences are quite the investment and choosing a contractor shouldn’t be a quick decision. Instead, you should look at multiple companies with proven records to see if they can give you what you want. Start with these eight:

1. Fenceman Company

Despite sounding like some kind of villain in a Goosebumps book, Fenceman is actually one of the best fencing contractors in all of Vancouver. They’ve been building high-quality fences for the last 35 years and show no signs of stopping. Part of this is because they have such a good reputation of being fair and reliable to their customers. They are actually the heroes when it comes to fencing.

Working with commercial and residential customers, they are one of the only specialty fencing stores around. While they have a large amount of wood and chain link fencing material in store, they can also order special items. They offer up free estimates for their installations.

Their uniqueness is in the fact that they build on C-Posts. This means that the fences will stand up to 60 MPH winds.

2. Pioneer Fence

When you call up Pioneer Fence for a consultation, they will immediately ask you what you want to do with your fencing. From your answer, they will start to build an idea about your fence that will fulfill all of your requirements. They work diligently to ensure that if you want a fence for security, you are going to get a secure fence. If you want a fence for decor, they will get you a beautiful fence.

They work with a ton of different styles, even blending them together beautifully. Since fencing isn’t the only thing that they do, you can even get a complete make-over of your backyard from Pioneer.

3. DJ Fence Service

Sometimes you don’t need to be a huge company to really make an impact on the fencing industry. DJ Fence Service works with wood, vinyl, chain link, and ornamental fencing for residential or commercial fencing installations. They do honest, reliable work that will stand up to the elements. Not only that, but they are aware of your time and will always show up when they say they will.

If you have more space, they also work on field fences, post and rail fences, barbed wire, and gates. That work is just as high quality as the residential and commercial fencing.

As an added bonus, if you already have a fence, they will look into repairing it before they will try to sell you on a new one.

4. Rick’s Custom Fencing & Decking

Often, the reason people start to look for a fence is because they are getting a pool and learn they have to have a

fence for safety reasons. If this is the case for you, looking for a contractor that does both fencing and decking is a good way to go. By doing this, you will have the same materials, tools, and style of craftsmanship for both.

It will also save you a lot of stress.

Rick’s Custom Fencing & Decking is one of those companies.

They build absolutely gorgeous decks and fences, working diligently to ensure that their customers are happy. Not only that, they will build fencing of any kind to go around the perimeter of your property, from wooden privacy fences to ornamental aluminum.

5. Able Fence Company

If you’ve got a bit of a tough job to do, Able Fence Company is the place for you to look. After all, their logo is, “If we’re not able, it can’t be done!” For the most part, this is true. They are able to put gorgeous fencing in places that are quite tough. They can even build custom designs for people who want to mix styles or try something new.

With 35 years of experience, they have a lot of experience in making people happy. Their fences are durable and will last you for decades. In part, this is because they use only the best materials.

If you are a little low on cash, they have tons of financing options that can help you out as well.

Not only are they trusted by many of the companies on this list, but they are a favorite of people even a few states over.

They will quote you for their materials and even offer up suggestions on how to build the fence. They’ve been a leader regionally for over 20 years, so they know their way around fencing materials.

link, or ornamental iron fence is perfectly installed. They will even create custom designs so that you get the best possible product.

Call AK Timber Services for Fence Maintenance

After you have a fence installed, the work doesn’t end. You’ll have to do a thorough job cleaning your fence so that things like chemicals and natural debris don’t ruin the fencing or just make it look a lot worse.

While some of that will be up to you, AK Timber Services can help you with some of it. Trees and fences are a little bit like oil and vinegar – they really don’t mix that well. Trees can drop debris onto the fence, which in serious cases can cause weaknesses and in lesser cases cause staining.

The worst is a branch that has fallen, however. One branch can cause feet of damage and even take down an entire fence if it falls during a storm. If you have a suspect branch dangling over your fence or just want to clean up so nothing happens, give us a call today.
