Pros

  • Up to a lifetime of warranty
  • Flexible payment methods
  • Over 32 years of experience

Cons

  • Limited technicians
  • No vinyl fencing

Fanshaw Fence has been building fences in Calgary and surrounding areas since 1990. They provide homeowners, businesses and construction companies with fencing projects, from custom designs to simple repairs.

They specialise in installing chain links, wood, and ornamental fences, which are developed by them to ensure industry standards and high security.

We do think it’s a bit unfortunate that they don’t offer vinyl fences, considering it’s a popular and affordable material for fencing projects.

Secured with a concrete foundation, all of their fencing installations are expected to last and have a durable finish.

For cases of damages or aftersales concerns, they provide a 5-year warranty for all of their wood and ornamental fences, and a lifetime warranty for their chain link fences. This shows the confidence they have in the quality of their products, ensuring customer satisfaction.

However, we are a bit concerned about the availability of their fencing technician since they only have one, together with a small team, to help dig holes.

That said, clients who are interested in their services can get in touch for an estimate through their online form or a quick phone call.

We also like that they accept different payment methods such as cash, credit, debit, and email transfer.

Pros

  • Free estimate
  • No deposits
  • Over 25 years of experience
  • 1-year workmanship and materials warranty

Cons

  • Some reports of unresponsiveness
  • 2-man team

Having over 25 years of experience in the industry, Cottam’s Fencing and Contracting provides fence installations and services in Calgary.

They have a diverse selection of products, including chain link, vinyl, ornamental iron, wood, and farm and acreage fences.

Clients can get a free estimate by answering the online form on their website. But we advise clients to give them a phone call, especially after hearing reports of late and no responses from online requests.

It’s also good that they accept different payment methods like Visa, Master Card, cash and cheques.

Another thing we are impressed about is that they are willing to work during the winter since they have the resources to still provide industry-standard outcomes.

But we are a bit concerned with their 2-man team, consisting of the technician and an assistant. We discovered cases where this has led to some availability issues and appointment cancellations.

We also admire their dedication to striving for customer satisfaction since they don’t require any deposits and only accept payment after the work is complete and clients are satisfied.

On top of that, the company’s 1-year workmanship and materials warranty for all their services also puts clients’ minds at ease in case something happens with their finished fences.

Pros

  • Online estimate request form
  • Over 41 years of experience
  • Large team
  • In-house fence manufacturing and distribution facility
  • Up to 50 years of warranty

Cons

  • Some reports of unresponsiveness
  • Leans more toward commercial and industrial clients
  • Some reports of long wait times

Established in 1981, Phoenix Fence Corp manufacturers, supplies, and installs a variety of fences, automatic gate systems and related fence products for industrial, commercial, residential and agricultural clients.

Being in the industry for over 41 years has allowed them to grow a large team of experienced fencing professionals.

We are impressed by their in-house fence manufacturing and distribution facility, which helps them control and maintain high-quality production and deliveries.

But despite having a distribution facility, there have apparently been numerous cases of long wait times for their product deliveries, which we hope they can iron out soon.

They also tend to lean more toward commercial and industrial clients. As such, we don’t know how many residential clients they can actually accommodate.

As for quotations, you can fill out their online estimate request form where you can input the necessary details for fencing projects. Then the company will contact you with an estimate.

Do note that some clients have complained of unresponsiveness regarding online requests and emails. So we advise interested clients to make a phone call instead.

On the bright side, availing of their services also comes with a 1-year labour warranty and material warranties depending on the products used. For instance, a chain link and vinyl fence have a materials warranty of 1 year and 50 years, respectively.

Pros

  • Free quotation
  • Over 22 years of experience
  • Great product selection

Cons

  • Some reports of needing to improve communication 
  • No explicit warranty guarantees

With over 22 years of experience in the industry, The Fence Store is a supply and installation company that offers a wide variety of fence options for residential and commercial clients.

We like that they have different selections for each type of material, be it chain link, vinyl, iron or wood. It allows clients to match their desired aesthetic with the most suitable product.

They also have a high satisfaction rate of 92%, which they owe to their core strengths: their informative staff, highly experienced team, and finished fences.

But do keep in mind that their services and products don’t come with explicit warranty guarantees. A good rule of thumb is to ask for warranty details during the initial consultation to avoid aftersales issues or misunderstandings.

It’s also good to note that you can request a free quotation. They also discuss the best options you have to meet your specific needs and budget.

However, we’ve been told that emailing them for consultations can be quite unreliable. They also reportedly lack follow-through with clients calling for aftercare services. 

We suggest being firm and insistent over phone calls, particularly for any post-service concerns.

Overall, this is an ideal company, especially for small projects on a tight budget.

Pros

  • 5-year warranty
  • Offers financing options
  • Accredited business
  • After-hours emergency service

Cons

  • Some reports of delayed and postponed projects
  • Some reports on needing to improve quality of services

First Class Fencing has been providing residential, commercial, industrial, recreational, acreage and agricultural fencing installation since 2014.

They are accredited by BBB, which shows us the reliability of their business and services.

We love that they have 5-year warranties on all of their services and even lifetime warranties for selected products. They provide a warranty contract, so with this, clients can confidently claim any follow-up services within the coverage — free of charge.

Another thing we like is that they offer financing options so clients can fund their fence projects. They can even fence your entire yard starting at just $44.91 per month.

We were just a bit disappointed to hear from some former clients that they were unsatisfied with the quality of their fencing installations, specifically due to the miscalculation of dug-up holes.

In addition, there are also complaints about delayed and postponed fencing projects. 

The company seems responsive with initial consultations, but apparently there have been instances where the team didn’t show up on the scheduled appointments with no prior communication.

We hope the management can resolve this issue soon, as this can tarnish their reputation for being a reliable company.

Interested clients can reach them via email or call, and you can also book them over the weekend. You can also call them after hours, but it’s mostly for emergencies or quick quotes.
