Trex and Iron Fencing in Orem, UT

The Corey project in Orem was installed at the mouth of Provo Canyon. They opted for the Trex product not only for its elegance – but for its ability to handle the canyon winds – the Trex product has a wind rating of 130 mph. The 4’ tall Fortress iron that was mounted on a concrete retaining wall was installed for safety reasons – the Corey’s didn’t want their children to go over the 8’ drop. The reason the opted for the iron on the concrete wall was for the ease and cost savings that it takes to mount the iron fence style to a concrete wall.

Iron Fencing with Cedar Posts in Bountiful, UT

The Christensen project in Bountiful was done on the foothills off of Bountiful Boulevard. The project included privacy cedar fence, 4’ tall iron with 2” metal posts and 6’ tall iron with 6x6 cedar posts. Also there was a dog kennel included that was done with the 6’ tall iron panels and 6x6 wood posts.
