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.

  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!

  • We needed a fence installed for our back yard. Shane Oliver came out and measured, listened to my requests and made recommendations. I appreciate his expertise! He provided a detailed quote and sketch to provide to the HOA. After scheduling, a crew of two came out and worked very hard a put up our fence in one day. They were professional and friendly. The fence is sturdy, secure and we are very happy with it. Thanks for making it happen Apex!

  • Apex recently installed a fence in our backyard and we couldn't be happier. Carl and his guys built a sturdy, good looking 6 foot wooden privacy fence with great gates at a very reasonable price. They were reliable and quick! Best of all, our dog now has a safe place to run and play and we have the peace of mind he'll stay contained by an attractive fence that we feel enhances the look of our home.

  • We had Apex install a saddle cut shadowbox fence. It looks incredible. Very professional company. Highly recommended.


  • 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

  • After speaking with Phil, my wife and I decided to go with a 6-foot privacy fence. Phil took the time to show us different photographs of the privacy fences and help us determine where the gates would be placed. We could not be happier and have already received complements from the neighbors. Prompt, courteous and professional cannot be said enough about this company. I would gladly recommend Apex and Phil to my family, friends, and neighbors.

  • Apex was great from start to finish. The quote was very reasonable, Eric was very professional and honest, the crew came on the day promised, and the privacy fence looks great. The quality of materials and workmanship is excellent. We are very happy with the final product. They are even working with me to replace the latch since my dog has figured out how to open the gate!

  • Carl Woods came out to our house to perform the site survey and create their quote. He was very knowledgeable and made several recommendations to improve the look and function of the design I had in my head. He was professional and courteous at all times. The crew did a great job on the installation. In addition, they were both professional and courteous as well.

  • I wanted a 6 foot privacy fence for my dog, I went with the scalloped design. The fence looks really great. Before the pickets went up you could look down the line of posts and only see one, they were that straight. All the scallops look the same too. The fence looks very professional. Honestly it makes the ones around me not look very good. The fence looks very sturdy, the posts are set in 2 feet of cement and the gates look great how they blend in. Everybody I dealt with was very nice too. The owner of the company even came out to check on it during the day, I appreciate that. And the price was right there what I thought it should be. I think I really got my money's worth and would highly recommend Apex. -Kathy

  • 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.
