Walpole Wood Gates come in a variety of shapes and sizes, yet all are distinctive and stylish. Our wood gates feature half-lapped, cross-braced construction and sturdy hardware so that they'll be trouble free for years. Additionally, we are the only fence company licensed to manufacture and accurately replicate Colonial Will
Walpole's wood of choice is Northern White Cedar, selected for its durability and resistance to decay. The cedar is cut at Walpole's own mills in Chester and Detroit, Maine, and our woodworkers have the experience and skill to fashion this wood to exacting standards of symmetry and balance. By controlling the entire process, from forest to finish, we can guarantee the integrity of our products.
Northern White Cedar naturally ages to a rich, silver sheen. However, many homeowners prefer their fence or outdoor structure to be stained. Our unique in-line staining system coats the wood more evenly and thoroughly than any other method.
Because stain and cedar create a natural bond, the result is a deep rich finish. Pre-staining also means that there is no mess in your yard after installation.
While most standard products are pre-stained white, customers may request a stain color offered by Sherwin-Williams®. We can also custom mix a stain to meet your needs. These options come with an additional charge.
In addition to Northern White Cedar, Walpole woodworkers also custom builds with Red Cedar, Teak, or Mahogany, whichever best fits the style of your property.
As further support for your wood fence, Walpole offers our patented LifeGuard' post bases. These bases are the "green" alternative to chemically treated posts. They add years to the life of your fence and reduce maintenance by isolating the fence from moisture in the ground.
