Wood Fencing





Wood  

Wood fence is an economic way to add a decorative boundary or privacy to your property. Our wood fence is custom built on site. We call it “stick” building, meaning we put it together piece by piece on site. This is a stronger fence than a pre-built panel fence and will look like it was tailor made specifically to fit on your property. Once installed, your fence will last 10 to 15 years without any maintenance, however, water sealing or painting/staining will prolong the life of your fence. Our posts, runners/stringers (horizontal boards), and pickets (vertical boards) are typically pressure treated white pine, but other types of wood are available, such as Cypress.  

  

Privacy fence Styles: 

  

Board on board  

This is complete privacy and is normally 4’ tall or 6’ tall.  There are 2 layers of pickets attached to the runners/stringers.  The first layer is attached leaving a 2” space between each picket.  The second layer covers the 2” space left on the first layer. There are no gaps when the pickets contract and expand due to weather conditions.

  

Stockade 

This style is normally 4’ tall or 6’ tall. There is only one layer of pickets attached to the runners/stringers.  They are attached tightly together at the time of install, but when the pickets contract and expand due to weather conditions a small gap will appear between the pickets.

  

Semi – Privacy Style: 

  

Shadow Box 

We consider this a “neighbor - friendly” fence because both sides appear finished. This style is normally 4’ tall or 6’ tall. There is one layer of pickets on each side of the fence.  The pickets on one side are spaced 2”-3” apart and on the other side the pickets are placed where the spaces were left.  You can see through the fence if you look at it from an angle, but looking at it straight on you can not see through it. This leaves the runners/stringers somewhat exposed on each side of the fence, which also allows for some airflow. 

  

  

Picket Styles: 

 

Mainly used as boundaries for small children or small animals and as decorative fencing.  Picket fence is normally 4’ tall.  The pickets are attached to the runners/stringers leaving a space that is less than 4”.  This style can add a lot of character to your home.

  

  

Options for all styles of wood fence: 

Concave or convex top treatment

Gothic pickets

Wood Gates: 

  

Single Swing Walk-Through Gates 

Standard widths are 4’ – 5’ wide. The gates are custom built on site using a wood frame.  Metal frames are also available and are required for gates over 5’wide. Concave and convex top treatments for gates make for a nice entrance appearance.  Gate latches, handles and hinges are stainless steel powder coated black.  Gate latch can be locked using a pad lock.

  

Double Swing Drive-Through Gates 

Standard widths are 8’ wide (two 4’ wide sections), 10’ wide (two 5’ wide sections), and 12’ wide (two 6’ wide sections).  We recommend using metal frames on all double swing drive-through gates. 4” x 6” x 10’ or 6” x 6” x 10’ gate posts will be used for gates 10’ wide and over. Concave and convex top treatments for gates make for a nice entrance appearance.  Gate latches, handles, drop rods (to hold double gates open) and hinges are stainless steel powder coated black.  Gate latch can be locked using a pad lock.

  

*If you have a commercial lawn service you will want to verify that their equipment will fit through one of those openings before committing to a gate size.

  

Installation: free estimate

  

We start by digging the holes and setting 4” x 4” x 8’ posts on 8’ centers.  Then we fill the hole with approximately 60 lbs. of dry bagged concrete and top it off with the remaining dirt from the hole.  The concrete will set in 24 – 48 hours from the moisture that is already in the ground. Next, the 2” x 4” x 8’ runners/stringers (the horizontal boards) are attached to the posts using 3 hot dipped galvanized ring shank nails per each end that is attached to the post (6 per board).  Finally, the ½” x 4” x 6’ or 5/8” x 4” x 6’ dog-eared pickets (vertical boards) are attached to the runners/stringers using the same hot dipped galvanized ring shank nails.  Six nails are used to attach the picket to the runner – 2 on the top runner, 2 on the middle runner and 2 on the bottom runner.  Typically your fence will be level on the top verses following ground level, unless there is a specific reason for following the contour of the ground, like keeping a small dog in.  The extra dirt accumulated from digging the holes will be raked along the bottom of the fence line.

Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the way you choose to do business. It is very refreshing to see what I call the “Total Package” business. This is a business that knows how to do EVERYTHING right. From communications, professionalism, quality of work and price competitiveness, you do it all great. I am very glad that I was referred to you; now I will spread the word both in my neighborhood and my industry that there is only one choice for fencing of any kind, period.
