Wood Fencing Calgary
Wood Fence Builders in Calgary
Whether you have a backyard the size of a postage stamp or live on a piece of land that spans multiple acres, a wooden fence can increase your property value, provide safety and security for your children or pets, and can elevate the look of your home by providing a private gathering area for your friends and family to enjoy.
More versatile than a vinyl fence, and just as durable when properly maintained, wooden fences remain one of the additions you can make to your home’s outdoor space.
Why Choose Wood Fencing?
Wood is not only plentiful and affordable in the Calgary area. It provides a large range of fencing designs, styles, colours, finishes, and treatments to choose from.
With a wooden fence designed and built by Reliabuilt Fence and Deck you can have a unique fence that perfectly complements the appearance of your business or home. Whether you are in the market for a privacy fence with a modern look that uses horizontal boards or a more rustic design, wooden fencing can be adapted to suit your needs.
And, this versatility means it is equally well suited to allow a little extra privacy from city neighbours or to be built with the intention of keeping in the animals on an acreage property.
The versatility of wooden fencing, available in pre-set panel sizes – using pressure-treated wood, classic cedar, exotic hardwoods or composites or painted/stained wood, means that we can customize your fence to match the needs of your home or business.
Calgary and southern Alberta are known for our pretty harsh climate. Fortunately, the wood that grows in these parts is well used to this! That is why it makes for a fencing material that is durable enough to withstand the worst of the elements.
Despite the harsh weather conditions of our home, at Reliabuilt, we pride ourselves on long-lasting construction that you will be able to enjoy for decades to come. In fact, with a little care and attention, your wooden fence can protect your property for upwards of 35 years. Cedar is especially suited to our climate and pressure-treated wood adds great durability to your fence.
Pound for pound, wood remains one of the best value materials for your fence in terms of the years of performance you will get from your investment (current lumber pricing volatility has an impact on this of course – get in touch for latest price comparisons).
Think backyard fences and many people in Calgary instantly picture wood. The same goes for most acreage properties. It has been the fence material of choice for decades in this area and picket fences, in particular, are very traditional.
Cedar fences are part of the Calgary landscape and wood remains popular despite the advance in technology and new options available in vinyl, composites, and other materials.
The classic and timeless beauty of wood is alive and well. We can help you achieve that “log-cabin” type of look that brings a touch of country and nature to your city home.
In addition to adding style to your home, your Reliabuilt fence will also give it an added layer of protection.

An attractive and durable wooden fence can raise your home’s curb appeal and property value by providing a home with increased security and a backyard with protection from the harsh Calgary elements and can deter unwanted visitors from entering your backyard space.
With the increased visual appeal and added security, a fence can make potentially increase your home’s value.

Horizontal wood fencing
Horizontal wood fencing has become a popular choice for modern home designs.
A perimeter fence built with horizontal fence panels will complement nearly any home or commercial property and can be stained or painted to match a variety of architectural styles.
Plus, when paired with metal fence posts that keep the wooden panels off the ground and away from the wet, saturated ground, your horizontal fence will give you privacy for decades to come.
- Fortress fences

Frequently asked questions
The cost of your wood fence depends greatly on its size, the type of wood and style of fence, as well as the treatments and finishes you choose.
A western red cedar fence will differ in price from a spruce fence, which will be different again from the cost of a composite fence.
You must factor in the linear cost of materials per foot, as well as the height of the fence, the cost of gates and other features, additional features like post caps and latticework, possible zoning permits and labour/installation costs.
Typically, an average size property should expect to pay anywhere between $1,600 and $4,000 for a wooden fence but high-end fences may stretch to $6,000 apiece.
In most cases, you won’t need a permit to build a wood fence for your Calgary home. However, in the following circumstances you will need to apply for a permit:
