Estimating the Cost of Wood Privacy Fence Installation : What about the premade panels available at the local home improvement store? These premade panels are often made from pressure treated pine with three cross beams that are 1.5x2.25 inches and frequently sag after installation. The cheap fence panels can be suitable for urgent repair purposes but are not recommended for use when installing a new or replacement fence. Wood fence posts must be pressure treated and rated for ground contact. Galvanized steel fence posts offer longer life after a higher initial cost for the post and the post rail brackets that are required. Many homeowners dislike the appearance of the steel posts but this can be overcome by a simple coat of paint or wrapping the steel post in a wood enclosure. The fence rails should be 2x4 lumber from pressure treated pine or cedar wood. The style of privacy fence and the choice of wood used on the pickets will have the biggest impact to the aesthetics of the wood privacy fence installation. The basic privacy fence consists of 3.5 inch wide dog-eared pickets placed on one side of the rails; this style requires 24-25 pickets between each post. Another option is to use the wider 5.5 inch pickets which requires 16-17 pickets between posts that 8 feet apart. After the measurements are made, it is time to choose the materials for your fence.
Benefits of bamboo fence : Its naturally durable A fence made of bamboo is able to withstand harsh environment. A treated bamboo pole cannot be attacked by termites or other damaging insects. To keep the poles fully preserved, a sealant finish is recommended. With proper care and maintenance, a fence will last for a long time. Studies have shown that, bamboo lasts longer than an aluminum fence.
Split Rail Fences If the backyard is large and contains farm pets like horses, split rail fencing is your best bet. Such fencing is seen very frequently in rural locales and is most often made from wood. The main drawback to split rail wooden fence designs is frequent painting. It is also common for horses to attempt escape by eating their way out of wooden fences. Besides putting a dent in your pocket, this can be quite hazardous to equestrian health. The bright side is that installing vinyl split rail fencing easily solves both problems. Vinyl fences stand up to decades of exposure to the harshest elements with no sign of rotting or rusting. Not to mention that vinyl needs virtually no maintenance.
Picket Fences Many people visualize living in a house that has a white picket fence, which resembles a perfect version of the American Dream. Most picket fencing is around three feet high and made of redwood or cedar. Of course, such fences serve to accessorize more than protect the backyard. Thus, picket fence designs typically vary the most and afford best chances to customize.
