We often get asked to build or repair a fence using materials that match an existing installation. Is it possible? There’s no one answer: it depends on the type of material and the nature of the original installation.
For wood fences, there’s good news! The lumber used in constructing wood fences remains largely consistent over time. Wood has been a traditional fencing material for ages. You should have no trouble finding the same or similar wood materials that were used a decade ago. But bear in mind, new wood will not look the same as wood that has weathered for ten years.
Chain Link Fences:
Chain link fencing has remained relatively unchanged over the years. If you have a chain link fence installed a decade ago and need to repair or expand it, you can usually find the same materials without much difficulty.
Unlike wood and chain link, Vinyl/PVC fences have seen some changes over the years. Certain profiles or styles of Vinyl/PVC fencing may no longer be in production. If you have a specific colour or profile of vinyl fence you want to match, give us a call, and we’ll see what’s possible. Even if it’s not an exact match, it might still be possible to maintain the overall look and feel of your vinyl fence.
Iron fences and styles do evolve over the years, so it depends on what you’re dealing with. The good news: we have a fully equipped welding shop, so custom work is no problem. If your existing iron fence is no longer in the catalogue, there’s a very good chance our talented team can replicate it.
