Wood fencing is an affordable fencing alternative. Although it does not have the maintenance-free qualities of PVC, aluminum or chain link, it is a popular fencing choice. Often customers choose wood to better complement the rustic style of their home or to match a neighbor’s fence. Sealing or staining every two years will help extend the life of your wood fence. These pictures represent only a few of the many wood fence styles we offer. Think it doesn’t matter which company you choose?
Dog Ear Wood Fence
The Solid Dog Ear style of wood fence can be constructed with no spaces between the pickets as shown below or with a space of your choice. This style fence is available in Red Cedar or Treated Pine. Treated posts are recommended, cedar posts will rot prematurely when concreted. Cedar pickets and rails are recommended over treated, they have less tendency to warp or bow.
Advantages: Most economical of all our solid (no space between fence pickets) fences easy installation. The uniform and consistent pattern of fence pickets makes a shortened section invisible from the outside of fence. This style is very easy to cut down in width.
Disadvantages: The style of wood fence has a neighbor side (the good side with pickets) and your side (the post and rail side) as opposed to some styles that are the same on both sides. Initially treated fence posts do not match exactly in color if using cedar pickets and rails (until it grays in about a year or is stained). Wood is not a man-made product and will warp, crack, and fade. Consider a vinyl fence or aluminum fence for less maintenance and more consistent product.
Framed Wood Fence
Top and Bottom Trimmed with 1×4″ board with exposed post, creates the appearance of a nicely finished wooden wall. The cap can run between the post or through the post (non-exposed post) creating two diffent looks.
Convex Wood Fence
The Convex Solid style provides both privacy and good looks. treated Pine is normally used for the pickets and rails, treated pine posts are used to cement in the ground. Rot proof characteristics of CCA treated pine posts makes this fence a winner both in appearance and durability. The treated posts are used so they can be set in concrete to resist high winds. Matching cedar posts are not used, because the concrete would rot out the normally rot resistant cedar prematurely. The fence is built with no space between pickets and will shrink to leave a 1/8″ to 1/4″ space between the pickets. The vertical boards are attached with nails.
