The Cleveland Fence Company Inc. of Stoneham Massachusetts has been a Stoneham icon for the past forty years.
In 1974, Skip Cleveland, owner of the Skip Cleveland Fence Company, began installing fences as a sub-contractor for the Montvale Fence Company located at 47 Montvale Ave. In 1980, with an expanding client roster, he founded the Cleveland Fence Company Inc. located on a small lot at 319 Main Street. In 1983 Skip purchased the Montvale Fence Company, and the Cleveland Fence Company Inc. moved to its new and current location on 47 Montvale Ave.
There have been many changes in the fence industry since 1974 when materials were limited to cedar stockade, board, and chain link. Decorative aluminum and PVC fences commonly used today came many years later. As a Certified Fence Professional (CFP) Skip is accredited by the American Fence Association and continues his training through the association’s continuing education programs.
Skip enjoys assignments which require specific expertise, knowledge or diligence. For example, he installed the chain link fence inside the Polar Bear’s habitat at the Stone Zoo. He also did the installations for the planned New Braintree prison in Western Massachusetts which is now home for State Police Training. Over the past forty years Cleveland Fence has installed fences at such facilities as Logan AirPort, Walden Pond, City of Cambridge and thousands of residential properties.
Cleveland Fence takes great pride in its expert staff of designers, installers, wood workers and office personnel. Many of their employees have been with them for decade.
