For the past several years we’ve presented a challenge to Northwest homeowners: Show us your ugliest fences. This year, after reviewing some truly terrible fences, we’ve found the worst. Corvallis, Oregon resident Sherry Newton’s dilapidated, rotten, moss- and lichen-covered fence has the honor of being named the winner of our 2011 Ugliest Fence Contest.
For having a fence in such broken-down condition and letting all of us be privy to it, Sherry will receive 100 feet of free fencing materials.
Rick’s Ugliest Fence Contest takes place every summer and was held this year during our 31st anniversary celebration. Rick’s Custom Fencing & Decking was founded in 1980 in Hillsboro, OR, and has since opened five additional locations in Oregon and Washington, including the Salem store in 1998. Rick’s is a top destination for vinyl, ornamental and cedar fence materials in Portland and throughout the Northwest.
If you entered the Ugliest Fence Contest and didn’t win, you have two options:
- Save your ugly fence for next year and try again.
- Take matters into your own hands and build a new cedar or vinyl fence. Rick’s has plenty of resources to help you out, including our free fence materials calculator app for the iPhone and our eBook, A User’s Guide to Fencing & Decking Materials, which is available for free – for now.
