Pros & Cons of Privacy Fences

If you haven’t yet decided that a privacy fence is right for you, consider some of these upsides and downsides.

Privacy Fence Benefits

  1. Privacy – An obvious benefit to privacy fences is in the name: privacy! If you want to set your yard off from your surrounding area, making it your private, quiet sanctum, a privacy fence is right for you. Similarly, privacy fences are generally safer than other types of fences.
  2. Property Value – As is the case with any newly installed fence, a privacy fence is likely to increase your home’s property value.
  3. Aesthetics – Privacy fences are beautiful! At least, we think they are. A wood privacy fence can be an aesthetically pleasing addition to your Atlanta-area home.

Cons of Privacy Fences

  1. Cost – Since privacy fences are made of solid, high-quality wood with no gaps, they’re one of the more expensive kinds of fences we install in the Atlanta area. There can be some ongoing costs too: wood requires more maintenance than metal, chainlink, and other materials.
  2. Neighborly Disagreement – If you share a property line with your neighbors, a privacy fence could cause some strife. The height of a privacy fence might block your neighbor’s yard and their views.

Privacy Fence Materials

For wood privacy fences in Atlanta, two types of wood are most common (both of which are rot- and bug-resistant):

Pressure Treated Pine (PTP) – This type of wood is specially treated with pressure and chemicals to improve its longevity and resiliency against rot and deterioration. Pine wood can also be more cost-effective since it is grown, harvested, and treated right here in the Southeast.

Cedar – Cedar fencing is premium quality and has a beautifully rich color. We import it to Atlanta from the Pacific Northwest and Canada.

Types of Wood Privacy Fence Materials

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. We can help you find and design a privacy fence style that’s perfect for you! These are some of our most commonly built styles.

  1. Dog-eared Privacy Fences – This is a perfect style for basic privacy fence needs. Dog-eared fences are known for their trapezoidal top as seen here.

Board on Board Fences - Kennesaw

  1. Scalloped Privacy Fences – With gently curved lines punctuated by strong and sturdy anchor posts, a scalloped fence is a work of pleasing contrasts. The scalloped fence style can be used for privacy fences and picket fences.
  2. Saddled Privacy Fences – The design of a saddled wood privacy fence is very appealing thanks to the placement of the posts along the outside of the fence. This exposure adds a pleasant 3D look to the entire fence line.
  3. X-Brace Privacy Fences – This style of privacy fence is instantly recognizable from its name, featuring X-shaped bracing along its length. Check out this recent X-brace privacy fence project we did in Marietta, Georgia!
Client Testimonials
  • Brian at Apex truly cares about his business and the service he provides to his customers. We had several fence companies provide quotes. Not ONE of them demonstrated that they truly wanted to EARN our business like Brian. We replaced a large 4ft old picket fence with 6ft privacy wood and 5ft Galv Steel facing driveway. Brian's attention to detail, prompt call or email return is something rarely seen in service market. His team (Kenny, etc.) even placed temporary latch on steel door to meet code for pool fill while waiting for actual (Magna Latch) to arrive. Would HIGHLY recommend Apex Fence. Great Value at a very competitive price!

  • Carl gave us everything we wanted in our fence (privacy, security and a great place for our kids/pets to play.) I would highly recommend Apex to anyone who wants a service that covers all the basis. We requested quotes from many providers....Apex was by far the true experts at giving you the best options for your fence. -K and E Dickinson

  • Had fence put up two days ago. Love it! Dog ear 6ft privacy fence. The workmanship and materials are high quality and the workers were extremely nice, pleasant, accommodating and efficient. The same can be said about Carl who is the company manager who I originally met with. He even comes out later to check on the work and that you are completely satisfied before final payment is made. I felt very comfortable with the decision to use his company. I know they will stand behind their work. Plus they put the fence up within a day. My next door neighbors used them as well and their fence looks great too. Price was very reasonable. My only regret is not having done it earlier. The bonus is my Houdini escape artist dogs are now finding their hobby impossible to continue.

  • Apex Fence installed 215' of dog-eared, pressure treated fencing plus two gates.  The work was completed in one day. My rep, Bill, was professional, responsive and very easy to deal with. Chris and Christy in the office were also very pleasant and responsive. Good work, great service and good value from Apex. -Brad K.

  • Received estimates from three reputable fencing contractors and went with Apex. Shane was a straight shooter, and let me know what would work best in my application. The team came out and completed the fence ahead of schedule, and I couldn't be happier. Very friendly English-speaking crew. I will only use Apex fence for future projects.

  • Apex Fence Company really went above and beyond to make sure I was a satisfied customer, even coming out to speak personally with a difficult neighbor. I was really impressed with their professionalism, and ended up with a beautiful privacy fence!

  • We got two estimates for our fence, and went with Apex because it was the installer who came out to do the estimate, and he gave us some good ideas that we incorporated into our design. Everything happened just like they told us, and our fence was installed a couple of weeks ago. We were very impressed with the install, they cut each board of the privacy fence so that it followed the terrain while looking perfectly level and even at the top part. We would gladly recommend Apex to anyone who needs a fence installed.

  • My husband chose APEX based on recommendations seen on this site. They just installed a shadowbox style fence for our backyard, complete with driveway gate and staining. We are thrilled with the results. The salesperson, the workers, and the stainers always came when they promised, and on time. Everyone returned my calls (even from their vacations), and followed up to see that we were satisfied. Their proposal was tailored to fit our needs. I followed their recommendations (hefty gate hinges and good staining), and I'm glad I did. I highly recommend this company. -Jill Angela

  • Great experience from start to finish! We had Apex replace our privacy and picket fences and install an automatic gate. Bill and Christie are both very friendly and helpful and no one tried to up-sell me into buying what I didn't need or want. Stayed true to all timelines and quotes and worked within my budget. Our new fences and gates are beautiful! Would definitely recommend!

  • We had Apex install our new privacy fence and are happy with the result. Eric is great, very professional and responsive. Fence went up in two days and looks very nice. Price was reasonable. Overall, would recommend.
