Wood Fence

Wood privacy fence with steel VersaPosts. A wood fence has a classic look that has stood the test of time. Wood fences can come in privacy, picket or rail styles. Most often rot resistant cedar is used although redwood, pine and hem/fir are also available. Wood fences can be treated with a stain or they can be left to turn a natural shade of gray. Visit our Fence Gallery to see all of the different styles of wood fence that we sell and install.

Wood Privacy Fence

For privacy fencing wood is an economical and durable choice. The pickets are usually 6" wide and are 4 to 8' tall. Most commonly the pickets are dog-eared. This makes it easier to get a straight line along the top. Flat-top fence pickets are also used. The pickets can also be installed in a shadow-box style. This commonly known as a "good-neighbor" fence. A picture frame style can also be created in different styles. Another option is to run the pickets horizontally in rough, smooth or basket-weave styles. The posts for wood privacy fences can be cedar, treated wood or steel. For steel posts we carry a 2 3/8" CQ20 and the PostMaster.

Wood Picket Fence

Picket fences made out of wood are an attractive way to define property boundaries. The pickets are usually 4" wide and are typically 4' or 6' high. The spacing between the boards can be varied based on personal preference. The pickets almost always dog-eared and are usually cedar. The pickets can be stained or they can be left to weather to a shade of gray.

Split Rail Cedar

Split-rail cedar fencing is of course made of cedar. Split rail cedar comes in two rail or three rail styles. The posts for 5' 6" tall for a 2-rail fence and 6' 6" for a 3-rail fence. The rails come in both 8 and 10 lengths. Barrier wire can be added to keep pets in or out. The wire used is often welded wire or field fence.
