Changing a Wood Fence Picket: Changing a Fence Picket is almost self explanatory. In the Dallas Texas metro the choices of fence pickets are starting with the best then to the last are Cedar (3-4 different grades), Composite ( recycled materials like Trex, Correct Deck ), Pressure Treated Yellow Pine and Spruce - Fir - and White Pine ( These are all in the white wood category). The white woods typically have a longevity of 7 - 10 years unless a good weather sealant is applied. Once again make sure that your screws or nails are of the proper length and either hot dipped galvanized or aluminum. You can attach a fence board to the top of the pickets or a nylon string to use to keep the top straight as you fasten them to the rails.
Installing Fencing Around Your Home TOOLS REQUIRED- Post hole digger, long handled pointed shovel, string line, measuring tape, power saw with plastic cutting blade, extension cords, concrete mixing tub, 4 level. A tripod and level can be rented and if your property is sloped, will come in handy to keep lines of fencing level as you step down (or up) in different areas, safety glasses and good work gloves. A wrench is necessary to tighten clamp bolts but a good ratchet and socket will save a lot of time.
Vinyl Fence A vinyl fence is a good choice for any of the above reasons for a fence. You have your privacy fence, view fence, pool fence, 3 rail, and picket fence. You can solve all your issues without the maintenance issues with the other types of fences. You also have the advantage of building pergolas and arbors and gazebos all out of the same material that complement each other.
Is a fence a fence? Actually a fence is really a fence no matter what its made of, but there are certainly advantages and disadvantages of one type over the other. The choice is yours. Please do your own research and find out for yourself which one would be best for you and your family. A good way to find information on a particular fence your interested in is to present your questions to someone who owns that type. Ask about maintenance and cost, along with what they like or dislike about their choice and experience.
