Want to learn more about what makes Ideal Fence a great Fence Company?
Ideal Fence is an Ottawa-based fencing company that provides Ottawa and its surrounding areas in Eastern Ontario with all kinds of fencing services. We cover both residential and commercial fencing needs and are ready to work under all circumstances and according to customer’s plans and wishes. We work with such fencing materials as wood, vinyl, iron, aluminum, and many others, and provide both fence installation and fencing repair services. Our goal is to become the best and most reputable fencing company in Eastern Ontario, and one that will leave a trail of happy customers wherever it goes.
Rene Deschenes – Owner/Operator:
Rene started installing fences in 1994. He started his first contracting business, a fence installation company, in 1998. As the largest sub-contractor in the city, his installation prowess allowed several other firms’ rise to prominence in the Ottawa region. Our fearless leader prides himself on treating every single customer with the utmost respect, and this is reflected in the culture of Ideal Fence. No single contractor is responsible for more residential fence installations over the last 20 years. In his rare time away from the business, he spends time touring his motorcycle, and relaxing in his pontoon on the lake.
Marquis Bouchard – Yard coordinator:
Always happy and positive, Marquis is the single point of accountability in managing our company’s inventory. With over 35 years of manufacturing and heavy machinery experience, he is responsible for overseeing everything related to construction. He is the pulse of our installations and we are very lucky to count on his ultra-reliable expertise! He attributes his infectious temperament to spending as much time as he can on his motorcycle on the weekends. He has also compared himself to Freddie Mercury in the karaoke lounge.
Christine Lanthier - Assistant Coordinator:
Christine takes on far more than any normal person could under regular circumstances. She is our “Superhero!” Christine brings years of office administration experience to the fray and provides a stability sought-after by any organization seeking to provide outstanding customer service. Christine is a devoted mother of two adult children, or three if you consider her partner of 28 years … who is notably one of the very best fencing experts in the city. Together they enjoy camping the outdoors when they are not working.
Peter “Maverick” Mitchell – Sales Representative:
Peter brings 45 years of fencing experience to the table every single day, and his resume of fence work in the Ottawa region reads like a 19th century Leo Tolstoy novel. As a former business owner, Peter has trained hundreds of installers over the years. He is regarded by industry people as the “Fence Whisperer,” for his cosmic experience with every style and product imaginable. He claims to remove his trademark baseball cap before bed, but we’ve yet to find a reliable source to corroborate this with testimony or evidence. Peter has one hobby: spending time with his grandchildren … five and counting.
Pierre Chateauvert – Sales Representative:
Pierre grew-up in Orleans and was appointed de facto mayor by the time he finished high school. Groomed by his father from the early age of 13, he co-owned and operated the Orleans Sports Skiwear store on St-Joseph Blvd. for over 10 years. After spending 40 years of his life in sales and customer service, his “off the charts” pedigree makes all his customers feel like they are the most important people in the world. Proud father of two grown children, Pierre loves to share his contagious enthusiasm and passion for life when he’s spending time with friends and family on his boat, at his favourite location in the world, Lac Simon.
Brandon Capaldi – Sales Representative:
Brandon hails from the metropolis of Windsor, ON. and made his way to Ottawa five years ago to be closer to his mother. Known for his tireless work ethic, Brandon brings a wealth of experience in both construction and sales to the fold. His steadfast commitment to customer service is unparalleled in the Ottawa fencing industry. Sky is the limit for his talent, and we are very excited to watch him become the very best fencing sales expert in the city! An avid sports enthusiast, Brandon also plays hard. His hobbies include traveling, concerts and festivals, working out, poker, golf, and cooking.
Randy Wilson – Sales Representative:
Randy Wilson has a jaw-dropping 26 years of diversified industry experience. His skillset includes landscape design, construction, manufacturing (lumber, PVC, modular iron), powder paint coating, and residential/commercial sales. Whether you are interested in discussing product, installation, or something else, Randy has an uncanny desire and ability to retain specifics about the most obscure details – ask him a question about anything! An accomplished musician and mountaineer, on his days off you will either find him on stage at a local pub in Westboro, or combing trails in Algonquin and Sandbanks Provincial Parks.
Kyle Morin – Sales Representative:
Kyle has worked in the fence industry in some capacity for close to 20 years! His early days were spent in the lumber yard, until he made his way to construction, and eventually sales. Not much free time for our “junior” sales expert, because most of it spent with his four beautiful young children. When he is not being a soccer dad, or building train tracks, or dabbling in arts and crafts, or spending time in the park … you can find him fishing on the lake. He also makes time for the cards, or a real live poker experience in Las Vegas.
Rachel Paquette – Office Manager:
The Matriarch! Rachel brings 10 years of full-time industry experience to the fold. Previously, she honed her dynamic administrative repertoire in the confines of our Federal Government. Her invaluable skill-set provides an orderly presence in what would otherwise be a chaotic office during the busy months. She is always available and happy to take calls from our customers! Rachel and Rene have been a dynamic duo for over 25 years. They share two children, and two grand-children. Rachel likes to go camping in the summer months, and travel to warmer climates in the winter.
Sylvain Pinard – Bookkeeping:
Every successful company requires a financial virtuoso. Sylvain brings 30 years of financial management experience to Ideal Fence, providing unparalleled stability in the industry. Over the years, he’s developed systems to account for financial transactions, and defined bookkeeping policies and procedures in the private hardware sector for giants such as Canadian Tire. An avid chess player, Sylvain also enjoys fishing and swimming in his time away from work.
Valerie Paquette – Office Assistant:
Valerie comes from a lineage of fence experts! She joins her Mother, Father, and younger brother as an important cog in our company. Valerie’s recent arrival really does make Ideal Fence, a family affair. She is deeply devoted to her two young boys (budding fencers?), who make life outside the workplace more sport than leisure! Val spends every free minute she can find on her parents’ pontoon boat and loves the campsite!
Melanie Desormeaux-Lavergne – Office Assistant:
Melanie is our “ray-of-sunshine” in a workplace that is comprised of every single personality type imaginable. She is happy, always! She is smiling, always! She is funny, always! The light of her life goes by the name Maël, her 5-year-old angel. Melanie channels her entrepreneurial spirit by running a side hustle as an esthetician. She likes to Zumba dance, and she likes to sing at the top of her lungs. Melanie is focused on following up her swim with dolphins, sharks, and stingrays … with a trip to Greece!
Jessica Moberg – Office Assistant:
Our company’s first point of contact, Jessica tends to a little bit of everything with steadfast and calm. She wants to be a law clerk someday; we hope she will change her mind! Jessica knows a lot about Turtles and Giraffes (seriously, just ask her). She likes puzzles, books, and swimming. She has travelled to most of the United States, her most memorable trip was to Georgia. Her 15 minutes of fame came at a Pittsburgh Penguins game when she was in the face by a rogue hockey puck!
