Have you got fence questions?

Yes we do! Get in touch with our team about your fence project and we’ll provide you with a free estimate for our services.
No, in Ottawa there is no permit needed to build a fence. For those in Gatineau or outside the Ottawa area, the by-laws may vary.
As long as we have signed consent from your neighbour whose property line is in question, we can build the fence so that it falls on the property line. If your neighbour doesn’t agree, the fence must be built inside your property line.

You can choose from a variety of fences at Fencescape to meet your needs and tastes. These distinct varieties are constructed using various materials. This implies that, depending on the material chosen, there may be some difference in the depth of the fence posts.

Fence posts typically have a depth of at least three feet. This depth is typically required to ensure that fences can support themselves. Our knowledgeable team would be able to determine exactly how deep each type of fence should be. We also have the essential experience to ensure that the digging operations don’t result in any unnecessary damage.

Our knowledgeable staff at Fencescape advises against having the fences touch the ground.

Fences touching the ground directly could harm the fence’s construction materials. Water that comes from the ground may affect different materials in different ways. For instance, wood fences could be more susceptible to water damage than other kinds. However, in some circumstances, customers would prefer that the fence actually touch the ground. The finest form of fence for people who want to prevent small rats from entering their home may be a gapless fence.

When having fences installed, you should definitely pay attention to your choice of materials if a long-lasting fence is one of your top goals. This is due to the fact that some materials are by nature more resilient and enduring.

Consistency in carrying out the advised maintenance procedures conveyed to you by the fence company that installed it is among the other elements that can affect the lifespan of your fences.

Generally speaking, there is no clear law that requires you to consult with your neighbours before installing a fence. You might want to think about telling your neighbours about your plans, though. This is due to the possibility of some commotion during the fence installation processes in your neighbourhood. As a result, even if you are not compelled to, your neighbours would appreciate knowing about the activities, particularly when it is anticipated to end. This can keep your neighbours safe, especially if they have young children or curious toddlers who might wander into the construction zones as the fence is being installed.

Fence needs will vary from client to client, and the materials used to build the fences may also vary. Our goal at Fencescape is to give you a wide range of options for residential and commercial properties when it comes to your fences. Our fences are often made of metals like aluminium or steel, vinyl, simtek, wood, chain link, and a variety of other materials.

At Fencescape, we move swiftly to fulfil your requests as soon as possible. However, the length of projects typically varies, and there are a lot of reasons for this. The size of the project and the location can both affect how long it takes for your fence to be fully installed, and certain bespoke orders may take longer. We will accommodate your timetable, so if you require a fence by a certain date, we will make every effort to meet your needs.

At Fencsacepe, we are able to install fence year round with powerful machinery and skilled installers.

No, you are not required to be there while we are working on your property. However, we do require that you come meet the crew the morning your fence work starts in order to go over the specifics of the project with your crew’s foreman.


PVC fencing has a number of advantages. It is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC),  is low-maintenance and won’t fracture or splinter like wood. Buyers choose PVC because it doesn’t decay, attract insects, or require refinishing. It is also available in a variety of colours and styles, ranging from short picket fences to tall privacy fences. It can also be textured to make it look like wood.

The average cost of a PVC fence in Ottawa varies, depending on its size, height, and current material costs. The cost of labour will also vary. On average, Installing a PVC or vinyl fence costs 75-130$ a foot. Visit our product page to see our PVC Options or contact us through our contact forms for a personalised quote.

Fence post caps, texturing, lattice effects, and gates are some of the add-ons that will raise the price. In addition, the price is affected by the thickness of the material. For a more solid fence that requires less maintenance over time, it’s usually worth investing in a thicker vinyl.  Our Experts at Fencescape recommends you choose a simple design over a lower-quality material if you want to save money.

PVC is a non-toxic material that does not damage the air or soak into the earth. There are no nails, jagged edges, or splinters on PVC fencing, and it has a smooth surface.

PVC fences are similar to wood fences in terms of installation. The components are routed and pre-cut for normal installation when sold to the fence installer. Rails are put into the posts’ routed holes. For better performance, the notched rails contribute to greater resistance to pull out and firmer fastening. Following the installation of the fence, post caps are affixed with an adhesive designed specifically for fusing PVC together.


The ideal type of fence is different for everyone. However, wood fences have been around for a very long time and for good reason. Wood fences are a cost-effective and environmentally friendly choice that are also versatile in terms of how they can be designed to match your preferred look. Due to the Canadian weather, cedar and pressure treated lumber are the recommended types of wood. With proper maintenance you can expect your wood fence to last for years.
