Posted on April 8, 2016 by Lone Star Fence & Construction

Once you decide wood fencing is something that you want, whether it’s for a commercial or residential piece of property, there are some things to look at. Asking questions can help to figure out what you want, what you don’t want, and who the right company is to handle the job. From there, you can begin building a fence around your property.

What kind of wood is used?

Different fence companies use different types of wood. Some are pressure treated wood while others are not. Particularly when you have children in the backyard, it’s important for the wood to be treated to such an extent that it is smooth to the touch to avoid splinters. Some of the most common types of wood used on fences include pine, cedar, and redwood. When you have chosenwood fencing, the company will discuss the options with you, as well as the pros and cons to each to ensure you have the information needed to make an educated decision.

Can I get a privacy fence?

A privacy fence is always possible with wood fencing. The most common heights for fencing include three foot, six foot, and eight foot. If you wish to have a privacy fence, then an eight foot height would be the most desirable and the wood can be spaced close enough together to provide all of the privacy that you would desire. There are plenty of designs that will ensure privacy while still providing aesthetics to your property.

What designs are available?

There are many fence designs and it can be advantageous to talk about some of the designs you are thinking of when speaking with a contractor. One of the design consultants can show you photos of past jobs, help you to select a fence design that works for your property, and even provide customizations to ensure you have something unique.

Can a gate be included?
