Strong and Resilient

Cedar fences can last for decades if properly maintained. It’s extremely durable — even more so than pine, spruce, and fir. When you install a cedar fence, you don’t have to worry about rain, wind, or sun damage since it can withstand extreme weather conditions and various climates.

Pest Resistant

The natural oils in cedar are highly effective at repelling insects and pests. These oils also ensure that cedar enhances the water-resistant capabilities which makes it rot-resistant as well. So you’ll never need to treat it with chemicals before you install it.


Environmentally Friendly

Cedar is one of the most environmentally friendly fence materials around as it requires no preservatives, chemical stains, or painting. It will age naturally to a soft gray colour that nicely blends with the natural elements of your lawn and garden.

Your cedar fence can easily last up to 20 years with regular care. Cleaning and general maintenance are necessary to keep the fence in good condition, but when cared for properly, it will remain structurally sound and attractive over its entire lifetime.

Frequently Asked Questions

At Ideal Fence, we offer Western Red Cedar and Eastern White Cedar fencing. Both fencing options are made from the highest-grade wood, primarily used in the manufacturing of high-end fences.

Western Red Cedar comes from the Rocky Mountains and Eastern White Cedar comes from Northeastern Canada. White cedar is smaller and slightly weaker than red cedar, however, it is still decay-resistant and incredibly strong. Because of the size and shipping costs, white cedar is also more affordable than red cedar.

Cedar fencing is an excellent option when you want more privacy without sacrificing aesthetics. Cedar also offers the lowest maintenance of any wood fence. You’ll never have to paint or stain cedar, it’s naturally beautiful.

Yes, cedar can be manufactured in many different heights and sizes to suit your needs. If you have a particular style in mind, contact our office to discuss your ideas in more detail.

That depends on the project, but typically, the materials and installation costs are higher for a vinyl fence. However, vinyl will last longer and will require less maintenance than cedar. So you can expect the fences to be fairly equivalent in price when factoring in all initial and long term costs.

The natural oils in the wood protect it from rotting, however, cedar fences can start to rot if exposed to consistent moisture. To prevent this from happening we install the cedar fence above the ground.

Cedar wood will weather over time and slightly change in colour. To maintain its appearance and durability, we recommend applying a protective finish every year for long-lasting results. Applying a water-resistant sealer to the fence will give the wood even more protection against rain and moisture, and a UV sealer will protect the wood against the sun’s damaging rays.

Our installation period usually runs from April to December with lead times ranging between 2-3 weeks in the spring and 5-8 weeks through the summer. Because we meet with our customers year-round, we recommend that you book your installation as soon as possible to ensure we can fit your project in before winter.

Client Testimonials

A very positive experience from sale to completion of installation. Would highly recommend for a professional installation.

Trever Morrison, Kare-Mor

My experience dealing with the guys from Ideal fence were first class. René the owner, from beginning to end , kept communication on point throughout the entire job. Considering this was my first large scale fencing project, I couldn’t have asked for things to go as smooth, and the very large crew of men ensured things wouldn’t drag on. I thank Rene and his entire staff for a great job, cheers to the gentle giant!!
