Securing your property with fences is a complicated endeavor. For a fencing job to work out smoothly, you’re going to want a competent and reliable contractor on your side.
In this article, we’ll help by nailing down our top picks for the best fencing contractors in Winnipeg. We’ll also touch on how much the service costs, along with other common questions about fencing in the city.
How Much Does Fencing Cost in Winnipeg?
The cost of fencing depends on your material of choice, as well as how it’s styled and installed. Some layouts are more complex than others, making them more expensive to build.
Wooden fences also tend to be more expensive than the chain link variety, as they’re fuller and require special treatment to withstand the elements. You’ll see that in the estimates below.
|FENCE TYPE||ESTIMATED COST|
|Average wooden fence||$30 to $55 per foot|
|Cedar wood fence||$50 per foot|
|Brown treated wooden fence||$40 per foot|
|Average chain link fence||$18 to $24 per foot|
|Galvanised chain link fence||$18 per foot|
|Black PVC-coated fence||$24 per foot|
Multiply these rates by the desired perimeter of your fencing project and you have yourself a good quote to start with.

He did not disappoint us, it was done to perfection.Since then he is my go to guy for all my other properties and also has done beautiful work on my residence. It’s nice to have a contractor that I 100% trust and he always over delivers.Thanks KMA for everything you have done for my family. We truly appreciate it. Looking forward to many more projects with you.”―Shawn Dziedzic

We shopped around and were impressed with both the price and the service we got from Derek at Squirrel Construction. The fence was in a tricky spot with lots of underground utility lines, existing structures and patio stones to contend with in various places and he managed to do the job without disturbing or damaging anything. I can unreservedly recommend Squirrel for your next fence building project.”― Grahame Young
“Derek and his crew installed a 6’ tall backyard fence and a 3’ front yard fence for us last fall and did a fantastic job.
