Walpole Woodworkers From Forest To Finish - Vertically Integrated The Walpole Difference
Cedar Forests of Maine
The Walpole Difference
Forest to finish Walpole is the only fence company that controls the entire woodworking process from forest to finish. This means that we personally take charge of every aspect of the work, from the careful selection of the lumber, to the milling, crafting, design and installation of your fence. Due to this unique control, we can confidently guarantee the durability and unmatched quality of every fence we create.
Cedar Log Selection
Lumber Only the finest quality lumber can make the finest quality fence. Northern White Cedar has been our wood of choice since 1933. Cedar is listed by the U.S. Forest Service as one of the woods most resistant to decay. Other woods are used when special needs arise. However, we do not treat any of our fence with harmful chemicals or wood preservatives.
Milling Because we have our own mills in Chester and Detroit, Maine, Walpole is ever sensitive to the value of trees and the years they take to grow. Therefore we use our own specially designed milling equipment that allows us to cost-effectively use the most wood from each tree. Every foot of Northern White Cedar is cut specifically for our fence parts. Milling to the proper size and proportion results in better looking, longer lasting fence.
Solid Cellular Vinyl
21st Century Materials & Technologies Walpole is proud to be the industry leader in developing and applying new synthetic materials such as Azek and solid cellular vinyl throughout our product line. These new synthetic materials have the look, feel, workability, and aesthetic appeal of wood. However, they are maintenance free and long lasting. Do not be confused ...these products are not shiny vinyl!
State of the Art Production
Manufacturing In our manufacturing facility, milled parts are crafted and transformed into exceptional fence. Experienced and highly skilled woodworkers use machinery specially designed by Walpole, ensuring that all manufacturing jobs meet our high standards of symmetry and balance, from the substantial dowels and joints, to the solid, aesthetically pleasing proportions.
Stain & Finish Production Lines
Staining Walpole has designed and constructed a new technologically advanced wood fence stain facility. First one coat of acrylic latex stain is applied by a state-of-the-art high pressure machine in a monitored and controlled environment. The coated fence is moved to a drying oven and then each piece is sanded and buffed. A further coating of stain is then applied. When the process is finished, the fence is carefully wrapped, packed, and made ready for delivery. The full, uniform coverage ensures a coating of the wood that is unmatched throughout the industry. It is far superior to staining after the fence has been installed, and it eliminates mess in your yard and garden. Walpole is proud to partner with Sherwin Williams®, the leader in premium coatings for more than 135 years, and to offer 14 standard colors. We can also custom-mix stain to meet your color requests.

Personalized Design Sevices
Design Consultation Our design consultants are the best trained in the industry. They work with you, your builder, or landscape architect to help you choose the right fence for your home – one that will perfectly complement the house style and landscape. If you live within our retail area, a consultant will walk your property, take measurements, discuss options, offer drawings, and develop a detailed proposal for your approval. We can even work from your own drawings. Walpole fence experts also work outside the Northeast region. In fact, for years, we have helped consumers and tradespeople nationwide with fence design and manufacture.
Installation Our trained employees have long-since perfected the art of proper fence installation. Walpole experts make certain that posts are dug to the proper depth for the size and style of fence. Then, the posts are tamped all the way up so the fence is perfectly straight and sturdy. Each section is carefully aligned and fastened securely to the posts. At all times, your grounds are treated with care and respect. We even shovel the earth onto canvas mats to protect your landscape. Walpole ships fence and provides installation nationwide. For the do-it-yourselfers, we provide detailed installation instructions, or, if you have employed the services of a landscape architect we will happily work with them, no matter where in the country you are located.
