Fence Maintenance

We encourage all homeowners to do their part to repair and maintain their fences – both the community facing side as well as the homeowner’s side. Below is all the information needed to maintain your fence to match the other fences within our community.

Wooden Fences

Wooden fences (lattice or screen style), regardless of who built them, found within or adjacent to your property are your responsibility to stain and maintain as detailed in the restrictive covenants registered on the title of your property. Cloverdale Paint, located at 1935 37 Street SW (403.242.7700), has the fence stain colours on file. Most fences are stained Springside Taupe, but some fences are more green – Green Tea (CA167) is the best match for these fences. Cloverdale Paint on 37th Street SW has both colours are on file under the Wentworth Residents’ Association file.

Note: there is a wood fence that borders the wooded/natural located south of 9th Avenue between Wentworth Rise and 89th Street SW that is the responsibility of the Association. The Association had this fence replaced in its entirety in the spring of 2019.

Stone Fences

All stone fences (i.e. wooden fences with stone pillars or low stone fences with metal X sections) found within or adjacent to your property are the homeowner’s responsibility to maintain. As detailed in the restrictive covenants registered on Title, homeowners are required to keep the masonry work as well as the wood or black metal portions maintained. Cloverdale on 37th Street SW has the stain information on file for the wooden sections as well as the paint information for the black railings (MultiMaster).

Note: there are two sections of fence (stone pillars with horizontal metal railings) located on each side of Wentworth Drive (adjacent to the ravine/pathway). These two sections are also the responsibility of the Association and were repaired and painted in 2014.

Stone Walls

The stone walls that are located on the east and north perimeters of the community (along 85th Street as well as Old Banff Coach Road SW) are the responsibility of the Wentworth Residents’ Association. These sections were repaired and painted in 2014.
