Fence Right is a local Canterbury business located in Halswell, Christchurch. Graeme Dempster is the Managing Director of the Company and employs staff on a permanent and casual basis to meet workload needs. Graeme started rural fencing in Blenheim in 2001 and then moved to Christchurch in 2002 where he furthered his trade and diversified into the residential market. Fence Right Ltd was then formed in 2004.


    Since 2004 Fence Right has provided fencing services in the Christchurch & Canterbury areas. Graeme’s slogan for the Company is “Right Fence Right Price”. Quality and service have always been the trade mark of this business. Graeme believes in listening to his customers and providing the product that they want not want the contractor wants. If you want the job done “RIGHT” then you are dealing with the right company.


    Have a look at the gallery and check out some of the fences/gates they have built. One of the pleasing things about this trade for Graeme is that every job has its own uniqueness and so this equates to a new challenge. One of the advantages Fence Right has over a lot of their competitors is that they have 16 yrs of experience at the helm and this experience counts when you need a job done in the most cost effective way. There is nearly always more than one way to carry out a job and so this is when experience is important!

    High Standards

    One of the reasons this company gets a lot of repeat business is its ability to produce high standards of workmanship. Graeme believes that to be successful in fencing you have to produce a quality product at an affordable cost – value for money. To do this Fence Right has had to devise and refine systems over the years to install fences that minimize labour costs but they still source quality materials to produce great fences at affordable costs.


    This approach has allowed Fence Right to pick up contracts with Land Developers such as Fulton Hogan Land Development, Milns Park and Aidanfield. In 2016, Fence Right completed its first commercial project by building fences and gates around the court yards of Burwood Hospital Redevelopment. Fence Right continues to grow and use these experiences to produce even a wider range of services for the future.


    Fence Right currently provides fencing services to Fulton Hogan Land Development and has done so for the past 7 years at Longhurst, Knightstream Park and Rosemerryn subdivisions. They have built kilometers of timber and steel fencing in and around these projects.


    Fence Right is also a member of the Fencing Contractors Association of NZ (FCANZ). The FCANZ was established in 2006 to promote, guide, inform and advise Fencing Contractors. More specifically, they foster and promote a high quality of workmanship and encourage & promote the knowledge of fencing personnel.


    Fence Right will stand behind their work. Try them, you will be glad you did!
