Types of wooden fencing vary greatly. Privacy fences are typically 6 feet high and block the view of your yard from those around you as well as your view of adjacent properties.
Picket fences are usually shorter and have spaces between the boards to provide barriers to keep children an small pets inside while allowing you to enjoy the surroundings of your property.
Here in the Southeast, two types of wood dominate outdoor wood construction: Pressure Treated Pine (P.T.P.) and Cedar. Both are rot and bug resistant.
P.T.P. is usually more cost effective as it's readily available, produced and treated in the Southeast.
So Many Styles to Choose From
A Dog Eared privacy fence is perfect for basic needs. Scalloped and Saddled privacy fence styles are classic in design and add a higher level of decoration to your yard, enhancing your surroundings and complimenting your landscape. This wood fence has a three dimensional look by exposing the posts to the outside.
Wood Fence Materials
Pressure Treated Pine and Cedar are what wood fences are typically built from in the Southeast. You can expect approximately 15 years of reliable, low maintenance service from your new wood fence; many still usefully serve their owners for 20-25 years before having to be replaced.
Cedar offers brilliant color and grows in the Northwest and Canada and is imported to our area. Pressure treated pine is readily available and cost effective because it's grown and harvested in the Southeast. Both of these wood fence products are bug and rot resistant.
It’s recommended that your privacy fence have a sealer applied at the time of construction. Applying a quality sealer (every 3 to 5 years) will add years to the life of your fence while keeping the “new” look for a longer period of time and minimize movement of the wood during the curing process.
