Fences, Trellises + Gates

privacy + security

why do you need a fence, trellis or gate?

Discover the multifaceted reasons why individuals choose to build fences, trellises and gates at their homes, each element contributing to an enhanced living environment. Privacy and security are paramount, as these structures create a clear boundary, offering a sense of seclusion and deterring trespassers. On the visual front, these additions are not merely functional but contribute significantly to the aesthetic enhancement, complementing the property’s architecture, landscaping and color scheme. Furthermore, they serve as effective barriers against the elements, providing wind and weather protection, acting as shields against strong winds and harsh weather conditions. Beyond functionality, fences and gates serve as canvases for decoration and landscaping, allowing homeowners to incorporate unique design elements. Trellises offer additional opportunities for creativity, providing support for climbing plants that not only add greenery but also foster a harmonious blend of nature and architecture. The decision to build fences, trellises and gates thus goes beyond functional necessity, becoming an integral part of creating a secure, beautiful, and personalized living space.

our process

At Davidson Site Works Inc., our comprehensive and transparent process is designed to turn deck vision into reality. From the initial consultation to the final permit closure, we are committed to delivering high-quality craftsmanship and exceptional customer satisfaction.

Initial Consultation

Our process begins with a personalized initial consultation. We meet with customers to understand their vision, preferences and functional requirements for the project. During this meeting, we discuss design ideas, material options, and any specific features or elements they desire.

Concept Development

Based on the information gathered in the initial consultation, we collaborate with customers to create a preliminary concept for their space. This concept serves as a foundation for further development, ensuring that it aligns with their vision and expectations.

Budgetary Estimate

Following the concept discussion, we provide customers with a budgetary estimate. This estimate outlines the anticipated costs associated with the proposed design, taking into account material choices, labour and other relevant factors. This step allows customers to make informed decisions within their budgetary constraints.

Detailed Design

Upon the customer's agreement to proceed, we move forward with generating a detailed design that incorporates all elements discussed. This design not only refines the concept but also takes into account the requirements of the local building code for potential permit applications. Ensuring compliance with local regulations is a priority in our design process.

Fixed Price Quote

Once the detailed design is approved by the customers, we provide a fixed price quote for the entire project. This quote outlines all costs associated with materials, labour, permits and any other relevant expenses. The fixed price quote provides transparency and ensures that there are no unexpected costs during the project.

Project Execution

With the customer's approval of the fixed price quote, we proceed with the execution of the project. Our experienced team takes charge of the construction phase, bringing the approved design to life. Throughout the construction process, we maintain open communication with the customers, providing updates and addressing any questions or concerns.
