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.
How to Choose Fence Companies for Landscaping? Materials used, cost, warranty and experience are some of the things that you may have to consider so that you are able to make an informed choice. Choosing the right fencing company for the job is important so that you are able to avoid complications at a later stage. Contact the local building authorities to gain knowledge about fence restrictions. Style, height and location may be affected by the restrictions specified by the local authorities. Gaining knowledge about these restrictions may help you make the choice as per the requirements specified. In some cases you may have to get a building permission before you start constructing a fence.
