The unseasonably warm weather at the end of 2017 allowed us to travel around Central New York and get even more decks and fences in before the snow falls. As we all know in the fall, regardless of the weather, “winter is coming.” We took advantage of a beautiful day in October by traveling to Sherrill, NY and working with some amazing customers on a new fence for their property. After going through their options, and looking at what they already had in their home and landscaping, they went with a red cedar picket fence along their property line. The choice to go with the red cedar was made not only because it looks great but because of its resilience as well. The wood used in these picket fences in resistant to insects, warping, and rot. The natural beauty of the cedar is hands down one of the most gorgeous woods—warm and textured to perfection in the patterning. A double 12-inch gate was installed for ease f access for small equipment to get in and out of the yard.
Red Cedar Wood is Mighty Good
When we work with you on your fencing projects, there are many options in terms of materials that we can build you the best product possible that will last as long as needed, meet the demands required of it, and look great all the while. Red Cedar is a wood that has a unique beauty to it, as mentioned before, with its versatility and durability. The wood grain is decidedly crisp, with rich tonal properties that can create beautiful fences, decks, and gateways. The wood is resin free, which means it works great wit ha wide range of finishes without strange effects or distortions in the application and drying process. It also looks great au naturale—the warmth of tone and crisp grain give you the flexibility to do what you really want to do to have something that matches or adds to your property/landscape already.

The Poly Enterprises crew made the trek to the historic village of Clinton, NY to install a fence for another happy customer. They were looking to add to the idyllic look of their property while adding to the enclosure of their front lawn. They went with adding a classic 3-foot high wood cedar picket fence with gothic tops to replace their existing wooden fence. In total, we installed roughly 220 feet of fencing around the front and sides of the property. The warm cedar is beautiful in its natural, unfinished state and offers a kind of timelessness and natural beauty to the beautiful blue house.
When we install wood fencing on your property we only used the highest quality materials. We use Western Red Cedar for every project—manufactured by the Amish in Lancaster County Pennsylvania, it is sturdy and meticulously made. The pickets and components that we use in every project are custom built specifically for the said job. We offer privacy and picket wood fences with a myriad of options for you to choose from so as to perfectly fill any need you may have. The fences come with an installation warranty that ensures they will not come loose, will not lean, and will not become loose for two years from the date of installation.

Our Poly Enterprise team was recently in West Winfield, New York for a fence removal and replacement. We removed and replaced a 30 year old wooden picket fence that was installed by the homeowner. The fence held up pretty well over the past 30 years, however after three decades of CNY weather and seasonal changes the fence began to rot and fall over. The customer wanted a particular style of picket fence so they had good visibility, a view of the home and yard, along with added security. For this our team installed the Black Aluminum Series 4131 with Quad Spear Top. The Regis Black Aluminum Series 4131 fence system provides good visibility and security. Regis has the same commitment to quality that we have at Poly Enterprise and we are proud to use Regis Aluminum Fencing.
Along the property line our customer chose western red cedar for a discrete privacy fence. The choice was made to use western red cedar because of its resistance to insects, warping, and rot. The natural beauty of western red cedar is without compare; the innate colors and texture allow western red cedar fence to impress in its natural state and is an excellent base for stains and paint.
We install residential and commercial fencing systems that are practically maintenance free and have a limited lifetime warranty as well as a two-year warranty on our labor. When you have our team at Poly Enterprise install your fence you can depend on a lifetime of quality, beauty and security. Visit us online for a free easy no-hassle quote or call us at 315-843-4049

After assessing the site we decided to install a 5-foot high, 9 gauge galvanized steel chain link fence. Chain link fencing is a cost effective way to enclose an entire backyard or just an area to keep your pets safe and yard secured.

A backyard fence is a perfect solution for allowing your dogs to run loose on your property. A fenced in yard can eliminate the hassle of having to leash your pet or use unsightly tie outs.

As Halloween approaches, many people like to join in on the spooky fun by decorating their yard. When adding outdoor décor, don’t forget about your fence! While you have fun sprucing up your fence simply keep in mind not to puncture your fence with screws or tacks and that painting your fence with “Glow in the dark” paint, while spooky can damage and permanently alter your fence!
Add pumpkins: One idea to get your fence in the Halloween spirit is to add pumpkins. You can line up pumpkins around the base of the fence, or even place carved pumpkins on the fence posts (if you do this keep in mind that the pumpkin could stain your fence!).
Create a graveyard: For a spooky look, use your fence to create a graveyard. Add cobwebs around the posts and add fake graves along the inside of the fence.
Make it fun and festive: Your Halloween decorations don’t have to be scary. Consider putting up a cute scarecrow or fun Halloween signs and cute pumpkins along your fence that make your home look welcoming to Trick-or-Treaters.
Just add lights: A fun and easy way to decorate for Halloween are to add lights along your fence. You can get orange lights, or some stores carry lights with pumpkins and other Halloween figures.
Have fun with your fence!

Anyone living in Central New York is familiar with our wild winter weather. As you prepare many things in and around your homes for winter, don’t forget to take care of your wooden fencing. It’s easy to forget that the snow can have serious consequences on your wooden fence. While many people in Oneida and surrounding areas opt to have Vinyl Fencing, the classic wood fencing is always popular for a variety of homes and uses. Check out our tips to help keep you ahead of the winter damage and inevitably save you money on repairs and replacements to your wood fence in the future.
Get Ahead of Moisture Build Up
Excess moisture from winter snow and your wooden fence are not a good combination. With our long and usually very wet New York winters, your wood fence isn’t allowed the time to dry out like it does between rainstorms in the spring, summer, and fall.
Allowing moisture to build up on your wood fence also allows its bad friends to come along as well. Damaging mold, mildew and rot are can cause serious problems for a wooden fence and decrease the life of a fence dramatically.
To prevent these issues make sure to stain your fence well before winter with a good quality oil based stain. When the leaves begin to fall in autumn get ahead by keeping leaved and debris away from the bases of your fence and clip trees and bushes that hang over or have grown to closely. During the winter months be sure to shovel out the spaces between your fences to keep the snow from heaping directly against it.
Quality Wood Prevents Warping
Have you ever noticed that your doors become harder or easier to open at different times throughout the winter? The expansion of wood between different temperatures strongly effects your wooden fencing too. When your fence begins to expand and contract due to cold weather, knotholes are formed. They are not only unattractive, but they become havens for all sorts of pests that can cause further damage.
Poly Enterprises is sure to choose high quality wood that is less likely to allow knotholes to form especially if you’ve treated them with stain. If you already have a wood fence, and you aren’t sure of the wood, be sure to seal the wood properly with stain.
Prevent Falling Limbs
As snow overloads tree limbs they can break, snap, and fall. If they hit your fence they can do some serious damage.
By trimming your branches before winter comes to New York, you can avoid most branches becoming an issue for your wood fence. Keep in mind that it is important to keep up on this even through the winter just in case unexpected branches fall.
Even with preventative measures, winter damage can still happen. If you find any boards or posts that are damaged you should take steps to repair them as quickly as possible so that they don’t ruin your entire fence.
