Case Study : An Affordable Fence Replacement Solution for a Surrey Strata
The strata owners at 8775 161 st, Surrey, BC, were having problems with their old cedar fence. The fence was falling apart due to rotting from the rough rainy BC weather. There was also a serious concern as the deteriorating fence was located above a high retaining wall making it a dangerous area unsafe for children to play in as it had no fall protection. Over the past few years, the cedar fence repairs had increased, causing their annual maintenance budgets to go up. The strata owners finally decided it was time for a complete replacement.
The property manager reached out to us to request a quote. The strata owners’ main goal was to get a strata fence replacement that would be a long-term solution for good value. The Premium Fence team members met the strata council onsite to provide them with fence material options of Vinyl, Cedar or Aluminum. Our knowledgeable staff explained the pros and cons of each fencing material type to educate the strata owners so they could make the right decision. For this project, the strata owners quickly saw the benefits of a vinyl fence, understanding that it would last them a lifetime and need very little maintenance. The Premium Fence team then measured the site and provided them with a full quote. Once the strata council discussed this project in their annual general meeting, they realized they could not finance the project all at once. We suggested we split the fence installation project into two phases to accommodate their financial needs better. We then scheduled the installations, which took place 1 year apart, and each installation took only 3-4 weeks. The installation process was done a few units at a time starting with dismantling and hauling away the old fence.
The outcome is that the 133 condo units at 8775 161 street in Surrey have a new fence! This new lifetime vinyl fence increases the property value for strata members. They no longer have to worry about their pets getting out of their yard or their children going through the fence above a high retaining wall. In addition, the property is secure and has excellent curbside appeal. This new fence will have very little maintenance as it doesn’t require any yearly painting or staining. Vinyl fences only require a power wash every 2-3 years. This vinyl fence is protected with a lifetime product warranty, meaning the new fence owners can submit a warranty request directly to us at any time if needed. At Premium fence we believe in quality that lasts a lifetime!
