You’ll notice that the old cedar fence was installed on a retaining wall with horizontal fillers along the bottom. These horizontal fillers with vertical cedar slats on top gave the entire fence an awkward look.
The installer ended up replacing the cedar fence with a SLEEKFENCE aluminum privacy fence product. Our modular fence system is very customizable; SLEEKFENCE can be altered and manipulated to look great in virtually any setting. You’ll notice that the client did not need to use any fillers, so the horizontal aluminum fence is consistent throughout the project. This makes the entire project look more consistent and aesthetically pleasing. You also may notice that this fence is a little taller than our standard 69” high aluminum privacy fence panels. The installer used 69” high aluminum privacy fence panels and cut up extra panels for extensions to achieve a 7ft high fence.
Project: Custom Residential.
Location: New Westminster, BC
Product: Aluminum Privacy Fence Panels.

We will take you through 3 categories for both types of fence products. Those categories will be cost and maintenance as well as installation requirements. At the end of the article, you can discern which product you prefer based on our provided data.
