About Custom Fence

Crafting Quality Fences Since 1960

From humble beginnings to a leader in the fencing industry, discover the journey of Custom Fence as we continue to deliver excellence and innovation in every project.

Our Journey

From Backyard Projects to Industry Leaders

In 1960, Walter Cheal purchased his first chain link fence from Sears to secure a canal in his backyard. This simple act, combined with subsequent installations, led Sears to offer him a fencing installation job. Walter, then a JC Penny employee, accepted the challenge, collaborating with his son Lynn. Starting with just a few projects each summer, their venture quickly grew as they acquired essential equipment and a contractor’s license for wholesale material purchases in Salt Lake, enhancing their competitive edge.

By 1971, Lynn established Custom Fence Company with a dedicated building in Smithfield, Utah, to stock fencing materials. The company’s reputation for quality and reliability flourished, expanding operations beyond Utah to southern Idaho and later across multiple states from Arizona to Oregon. Today, Custom Fence proudly serves a broad area, providing everything from residential fencing to high-security solutions for airports and prisons.
