Questions when Building a Fence

When it comes to fences there are three important questions to ask yourself:

How high do I want my fence?

6 feet high fences are more popular in most new communities and allow for adequate privacy while remaining cost effective. Sometimes a four or five foot fence is installed if your home backs onto a greenspace or you prefer a slightly shorter fence. Almost any fence design can add lattice to the top to increase privacy and fence height.

Do I want 4x4, 4x6 or 6x6 inch posts?

Most basic fences have 4x4 inch posts. This is the most cost effective option and typically gives the fence enough support for most uses. The benefit of a 4x6 or 6x6 inch post is added strength due to teenagers playing football in your yard or big dogs constantly jumping up against a fence. Bigger posts will also tend to last a few years longer and prevent sag a little better over the years. That being said we recommend most people to stick with 4x4 to minimize cost.

What style of fence do I want?

We encourage people to choose one of the following fence styles below. These styles are offered by Totem Building Supplies and go under various names by many building supplies. Calgary Fences offers these styles because they are extremely popular and are great fence designs. If you want another style we encourage you to take a picture of the fence you like if it is in your neighbourhood or download a picture off the internet. As we said before there is no style of fence we cannot replicate with a picture.
