Choosing The Right Fence For Your Home

Choosing the fencing for your home enhances your home’s aesthetic, while providing you with security and privacy. 

There are so many fencing options to pick from, and some are better suited for certain yards than others. This is why it’s always nice to have expert advice!
FenceScape is Ottawa’s leading fencing experts. Our team of professionals will help guide you through the entire process of selecting and installing your fence.

What Style Of Fence Suits Your Needs?

Everybody has their own sense of style, and not every fence will work for every yard. 

Here at FenceScape, we understand this and our fencing experts are committed to delivering a quality fence installation experience. We have put together a simple guide to help you gauge which fence will best suit your style and needs!

PVC Fences

PVC fences are a cost-effective, stylish way to make a statement with your fencing. This easily accessible material is used in hundreds of urban and suburban homes across the Ottawa-Gatineau region.

One major benefit of PVC fencing in more densely populated regions is that the fence provides adequate privacy compared to other styles of fencing such as ornamental. 


In areas with varying degrees of extreme weather, PVC fencing may require more maintenance than other fencing styles. Depending on your personal preferences, a PVC fence may or may not be what you’re looking for.

Wood Fences

Wooden fencing has been a popular option among homeowners for years. This type of fencing has many benefits! From installation costs to the ability to easily replace segments of the fence without breaking the bank, wood fences offer convenience, style, and more.

Another reason wood fences are a popular choice is that there are so many woods and stain colours available to choose from! Work with one of our fencing experts to find a combination that is uniquely you.

Hybrid Fences

One of the most popular fence options we offer is hybrid fencing. Why choose one style of fencing when you can customize your fence to your specific style! 

Combine the suburban charm of PVC fencing with the reinforced steel of ornamental fencing to create a sturdy structure, or get creative and find a combination that works for you! The possibilities are endless.

Ornamental Fences

Ornamental fences are a luxurious style of fencing that provides excellent security without obstructing your view of the surrounding area. Ideal for country homes or for installing around your pool, this maintenance free fencing option is stylish, durable and secure.

Chain-Link Fences

Out of all fencing options, chain-link fencing is by far the most cost-effective. Chain-link fencing is great for enclosing your entire yard or even sectioning off a portion of your yard for a pet, swimming pool or garden.

Our team of experts will walk you through the pros and cons of chain-link fencing, and make sure all by-laws are being adhered to while helping you choose the perfect style of chain-link fencing for your home!
