Wooden Privacy Fencing
Our customers can choose between a classic wooden post or a metal pole. Their are advantages and disadvantages to each:
Metal poles: All come galvanized, can last up to 30 years, can generally withstand higher amounts if wind. Are much more expensive and take longer to install because of the wood to metal brackets needed to install the runners on.
Wooden posts: All come treated, generally last up to 20 years if properly set, easily replaceable, considerably cheaper than metal poles.
Either posts you choose will be set over two feet in concrete, generally 28 inches and placed on 7 foot apart. The close the posts are set together the more wind resistance it will provide. Posts can be set in 6 or even 5 foot centers upon customer request.
All of our wooden privacy fences come with three rails made of treated 2X4. Many builders and fence companies only use two which does not provide enough support for the fence, especially for treated pine fences which have a tendency to warp if not properly installed. This three rail system allows each picket to be nailed with 6 individual nails provided more stability and support.
Each post is set with approximately 120 pounds of quick dry bagged concrete that is pre-mixed before being placed in the holes to insure maximum strength and support for your fence. Concrete is never placed dry in the hole or mixed in the hole creating inconsistencies in the mix.
Customer can choose between either a treated pine picket or a cedar, their are advantages to each.
Has a natural bug deterrent, smells good, doesn't warp, but cost more.
Treated so has a bug repellent but wears off, have a tendency to warp at times, considerably cheaper.
* Remember: All pickets whether cedar or treated pine will eventually gray out and look the same if measures are not taken to preserve the wood and shield it from the suns UV rays.
All of our railing (2x4's) are fastened with 3 1/2 inch hot dipped galvanized collated ring shanked nails, and our pickets with 1 7/8 inch hot dipped galvanized ring shank nails. This means they have small rings around the entire nail which prevents it from working its way out over time. Our nails are hot dipped galvanized which means they are made especially for exterior use.
Screws are also available upon request.
Our gates all come with a turnbuckle support system which allows the gates to be easily adjusted if sagging occurs. Our locking systems are spring latches the can be open from either side as well as locked from the inside. Double gates are set with double posts to provide maximum support.
