Wooden fences are a tried and true choice for the consumer. There are many different applications for wooden fences from privacy to ranch rail and picket. There are a myriad of styles and custom options available.
Some of the more popular styles in Florida are privacy and rail fence. For our privacy fences, we typically use pre-fabricated panels. The pickets are “dog-eared” and made of either pressured treated pine or cypress. Cypress tends to warp and crack less than pressure treated pine. The horizontal runners on our panels are 2” by 4” and typically 8 feet in length. All of the posts we use are 4 by 4s rated for ground contact. The framework is always pressure treated.
Rail fences are good for animal containment and decoration. There are many options on the type of posts and rails to use. Normally some type of rough sawn 1” by 6” by 16’ is used for the rail portion of the fence and anything from a round post to a decorative top 6” by 6” is an option for the posts.
Wood fences will crack, warp and discolor over time. The more attention they are given, the longer they will last. For more specific details or options, please contact us for a free estimate with one of our knowledgable representatives.
