Living Beyond Your Lawn
Walpole Outdoors has been a leader in handcrafted outdoor living products since 1933, so it’s safe to say they are an authority on helping you to improve and maximize your alfresco space. What started as a small cedar fence company has grown and developed into an industry leader in solid cellular vinyl options for outdoor living. With what they call ‘The Walpole Difference’, they offer years of experience and craftsmanship with each product. Using an in-house airless spraying system, their pieces receive a high-quality paint and stain coverage that ensures a smooth finish and are ready to withstand the test of time.
Director of Sales Mark Bushway says, “We were really first in the game in offering AZEK cellular vinyl. Our engineer group, along with engineers at AZEK, can take a customer or a designer’s idea or sketch which become CAD (computer-aided design) drawings that can be sent directly to our fabrication shop—which are then programmed into a computerized CNC (computer numerical control) router and cut. Consistency is key in design.”
Though they have locations all over the country, their roots began here in Massachusetts, and with showrooms located in East Falmouth, along with displays at Pine Harbor Wood Products in both Hyannis and Harwich, and their corporate office in Foxboro, interested clients can get a sense of the many offerings when looking to remodel or build. Bushway remarks, “We also have an extensive gallery on our website for them to get ideas.” Walpole Outdoors offers a vast array of styles and ideas to help implement traditional or modern concepts in everything from pergolas, arbors, fences and even outdoor showers, just to name a few. Bushway says, “People don’t even realize all the different products that we sell. One may know us for our shade structures, but another may know about our mailboxes or lantern posts and not even know we also do outdoor kitchens.” He adds, “Our design consultants will meet with people at either their home or business, learn what they are trying to accomplish and together the team can help them achieve that.”
