The favorite residential fencing material in this country has always been wood. According to Thomas Baker at This Old House magazine, Americans had 59,000 miles of wood fencing installed in 2007 alone.
So, why wood fencing? It's inexpensive and lightweight, and can be easily shaped to give unique properties of character and individuality. Wood is readily available, affordable, and easily fastened with nails or screws.
There are dozens of styles, such as post-and-rail, crisscrossing lattice, and privacy stockade, as well as picket patterns and post-cap designs. A wood fence can be stained to make it pop out of the landscape or weathered to blend in. The wood fence is an individual expression within the landscape as much as it is an element of that landscape.
For hundreds of years Americans have built wood fencing. At first as property boundaries, then as functional, and commercial fences, and recently as decorative fencing. There are as many wood fences as there are needs for them, and no two are the same. With some smart research, sketches, and fence photographs in hand, you can start planning your own wood fence.
Your wood fence should last about 20 years if it’s made of rot-resistant wood. Posts are the first to go since they have direct contact with the moist ground. Panels usually last longer. If the wood fencing has a coating, the schedule for sealants can vary. Clear toners and waterproofing need annual recoating. Semi-transparent stains last three to four years, while colored stains can last up to five to seven years. Because of extreme weather issues, paint is not recommended.
Some of the many construction-grade woods we use are: Southern Yellow Pine, Douglas Fir, Redwood, Cedar, Eastern White Cedar, Cyprus, and Western Red Cedar. Contact the experienced wood fencing professionals at Hal Co to explore the many wood fence material selections and compare their features and benefits.
