Advantages of Using Professionals to Build a Custom Wood Fence

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), May 28, 2014 – Total Fence Inc. (, the leader in residential, industrial, and commercial fence and deck installation in the Greater Toronto Area, is announcing the top advantages for using professionals to build a custom wood fence this summer.

“Summers in Toronto are famous for being hot and too short. As a result, most of us want to spend as much time outside enjoying the summer as possible,” says Tony Defeo, owner of Total Fence Inc. “The backyard is where people spend most of their time with family and friends. And the best way to add value to a home and create a private oasis is with a custom wood fence.”

Defeo explains that are a lot of different reasons why homeowners decide to have a custom wood fence built around their property. For starters, a wood fence adds as much as 5%–10% to the value of a property. That’s because many people, whether they want their children to have a place to play safely, have pets, like to host parties, or are looking for a quiet retreat, will pay a premium for privacy.

While many Torontonians are proud of their do-it-yourself skills, Defeo explains that building or installing a fence is best left to professionals, as both inexperience and cost-cutting measures can lead to structural instability and unnecessary repairs. Further, even if a homeowner ensures they follow all the right steps in building a wood fence, it doesn’t mean it will be properly constructed.

“Building a reliable, beautiful fence requires knowledge, skill, and experience,” he adds. “Common mistakes made when building a fence include not knowing property lines, improper anchor points, using the wrong materials, and miscalculating angles. Hitting buried wires, cables, or plumbing can also be a very costly mistake.”

When it comes to increasing security, privacy, and value, Defeo notes that a custom wood fence can transform a property. Whether the design of the custom wood fence is simple, decorative, modern, or intricate, Total Fence Inc. can help property owners select the best style and materials needed to suit their lifestyle and budgetary needs.

“Building a custom wooden fence might seem like an easy project, but there are a large number of intricate logistics that can make it complex,” Defeo concludes. “No matter where they live in the Greater Toronto Area, if someone is looking to build a custom wood fence, they can contact Total Fence Inc. At Total Fence Inc., we work with our customers on custom designs that are affordable, functional, lasting, and beautiful.”
