Wood Fence Options

Choose from our beautiful wood fence designs for the perfect fence solution in Toronto

Privacy Wood Fencing

Privacy Wood Fencing

Get the ultimate standard in residential privacy fencing with our basic privacy style. You can find this design installed all across backyards in Toronto and the surrounding areas because of its simply beautiful appearance. Basic privacy wood fences are the most budget-friendly option for full privacy coverage, creating solid panels with each picket right next to each other leaving no gaps.

Board on Board Wood Fencing

Board on Board Wood Fencing

Another great way to get full privacy from your Toronto fence is with the addition of the board-on-board wood fencing style. This style is built by overlapping each picket directly on each other in a distinct, alternating pattern. Not only does this create a beautiful look, but it ensures over time your fence won't leave any gaps between boards as it ages. The optional top cap adds another dimension of style, too!

Shadowbox Wood Fencing

Shadowbox Wood Fencing

Do you want privacy, but would like your fence to have some visibility and spacing? A shadowbox wood fence is the answer for you! Similar to board on board, shadowbox wood fences have overlapping pickets, however each picket is attached by alternating boards on opposite sides of the horizontal rails. This gives the illusion of full privacy, but allows air and some visibility at an angle between the pickets. Many people prefer shadowbox due to its "finished" look on both sides of the fence.

PostMaster Posts With Every Wood Fence Installation

Wood Fence Toronto, Ontario Fence Company

At Standard Fencing Company, we always want the best for our customers. That's why we include a free upgrade to PostMaster Posts for every wood fence we install! Traditional wood posts are prone to rot and warping which can lead to expensive repairs and replacements. With PostMaster Posts, there is no need to worry about the strength of your fence over time. The design and structure of these steel posts are made to be hidden behind wooden boards as well, keeping the beautiful, natural look you love.

Building our fences with PostMaster Posts also allows us to avoid the mess of digging up our customer's backyard! Whenever possible, we install each post by driving the steel straight into the ground, avoiding the possibility of damaging landscaping or having large piles of dirt to remove by digging holes the traditional way.

Rot Prevention

PostMaster Posts are made of steel and will keep your wood fence strong without being susceptible to underground rot or deterioration like traditional wood posts.

Works with Any Wood Fence

No matter which style wood fence you choose, PostMaster Posts work seamlessly to give your fence a strong foundation while allowing you to enjoy the beauty of your natural wood fence appearance.

Limited Lifetime Warranty

When you choose a wood fence from Standard Fencing Company, you'll automatically receive PostMaster Posts for added durability and the great limited lifetime warranty from the manufacturer!

Wood fencing is a great option for many properties in the Toronto area. The secret to finding out if it's right for you is to determine your main goals and speak to our experts to find out what they would recommend. Wood fencing is often a beautiful accent to spaces needing privacy, borders, or some security. It is one of the most customizable types of fences and very versatile.

Wood fences typically last up to 20 years when properly maintained and protected. Due to their natural material, wood fences can rot and warp, but when protected with high quality paint or stain and routinely checked for problem areas, wood fences can last for decades and beautifully accent your property for many years. The lifespan of your wood fence can also be impacted by the type of wood posts you use. Our PostMaster Posts are made of steel and come with a limited lifetime warranty to give your wood fence the longest lifespan possible.

One of our favorite aspects of wood fences in the Toronto area is its versatility to be able to be modified and work in nearly any scenario. Wood fences are great for privacy, but they also work perfectly for designs that allow some visibility, like the shadowbox style. Wood fences can be adjusted in height and modified to fit the terrain of your property. The other highly desirable benefit of wood fencing is its natural beauty. While other types of fences can mimic the look of wood, nothing looks quite as natural as a traditional wood fence.

Wood fences do require more maintenance than some other types of fencing, but when properly cared for, they are a wonderful type of fence. To maintain your wood fence, be sure to seal it with a high quality stain or paint product and recoat it every few years. Also, check your fence now and then for any problem areas you may notice, like boards warping or cracking, and get the problem areas fixed right away. When you keep up with your wood fence, it can last longer than expected!

Wood fences are an excellent choice to create privacy at your home or business in the Toronto area. Wood fences can be built in solid panels or semi-private designs based on your preferences and needs. Many people who are looking for privacy choose a style of wood fencing. You can even adjust the height of your fence and the shape of the picket tops.

Staining or painting your wood fence is up to you, but we highly recommend it! Wood is a natural material that is prone to breaking down over time sooner than some other types of fences. Coating your fence with a high quality stain or paint will not only look great but will protect your fence from damage and provide the best long-term results. If you would like more tips or information on staining your fence, please reach out to our fence experts anytime!

Yes, we can! There is no need to hire a separate contractor to do the demolition and removal of your old fence. Standard Fencing can do that for you! We will even haul it away. There is an additional charge for removing your old fence so contact us at (647) 417-4805, and we'll be happy to provide you with pricing for this service.

We take care not to damage any of your existing landscaping when we install a new fence at your Toronto residence or commercial property. We do not use large equipment to dig the fence posts so there is very little possibility of harming any existing plants, trees, or shrubs.

Each obstruction is different, therefore, we find the best solution for each individual situation. For example, if there is a large obstruction like a tree in the proposed fence line, we can set a post on either side of the tree and then frame around it. We will always discuss your options and make recommendations during our on-site consultation.

We will always do our best to accommodate your needs. We schedule our fence installations to be completed as quickly as we can and as soon as we have all of the materials needed for your specific fence design. Once installation day arrives, your fence will be up very quickly, usually within 1 to 3 days, though it depends on the size of your project. For example, a 100 linear feet fence will require one day for demolition and to set the posts and one day to build the fence and gate. Contact our team to talk about what you need, and the pros at Standard Fencing will be happy to make a plan that works best for you!

We love dogs too and we know it's necessary that they be allowed to go outside when needed. It is not recommended that you allow your dog outside unattended during the active installation of your fence so that there is no chance of your furry pal getting hurt. There are a lot of materials being moved around and equipment being used so it's best not to allow your pet near the work area while we are there. We clean up the job site at the end of each day, so it is safe when we are not there.

No, you do not need to be home during the installation, but we do prefer that you are available on the first day of the installation to do a quick walk-through to verify project details before we begin. If something unexpected comes up, we can contact you by phone if needed.

We use a professional post-driving tool to drive the posts quickly and efficiently into the ground without the need to bring in any large heavy equipment. This ensures your existing lawn and property will be in the same condition as we found it.

We want your gate hardware to last so we use the durable, high-quality Everbilt brand of steel hinges, pulls, and self-latching gate latches.
