The Best Wooden Fence Design Options for Your Home

Wooden fences as we know, have become a more viable option for fencing in both the developing and developed countries. This may be attributed to the fact that the installation of wooden fences is affordable and very durable, and can stand the proverbial 'test of time.'

Wooden fence styles

There comes the inevitable choice making that comes with this type of project, as there is a plethora of styles and designs to choose from. Not to worry, as your local contractor would guide you through in this decision-making process. Meanwhile, here are some of the major fence styles

  • Privacy Fences: This style changes area into a fortress, a place to quickly retreat to. At least 6ft in height, a privacy fence is made of solid wood wound tightly together to allow for no pockets of space in your fence, also acting as a blockade to wind and sound waves. The stockade style is the most common of this style of fencing. Variations include a board, flat privacy, and board on bottom fences.
  • Shadowbox Fences: Also referred to as semi-privacy fences, it has the basic features of the above mentioned style of fencing, except that it provides some level of visibility from different angles and allows for light and air to float into the yard. This is particularly useful in areas where local codes prohibit total enclosure.
  • Picket Fences: standing at 4ft or less, these type of fences are used to earmark a particular area, and keep children especially within a specified location. Upright posts are joined by top and bottom rails along the length of the fence. Different types of tops are available including Gothic or pointed boards and dog-eared panels.
  • Post and rail: This style is particularly useful in rural areas to keep animals within a designated area. Here, square posts are connected by two or more rails to create the required proportions of the enclosure, while spilled rail fences exhibit a more rustic open look for the animals to have an unobstructed view of their immediate surroundings.

Why you should own a wooden fence

Wooden fences give your home a warm and natural appearance, as the use of woods would not put your immediate environment to harm if the installation is done right, hence the need to insist on a standard and very professional state of the art wooden fence that would give your home a very attractive outlook. Customers that are concerned about their immediate environment are often attracted to the prospect of owning wooden fences because there is the availability of economic and environment-friendly preservatives and stabilizers. These will help keep down swelling while preventing the wood from the rot of any kind and termites.

 Wooden fences are very affordable. They come in a wide range of cost-effective dimensions as against the other types of fences like iron wrought fences, aluminum fences and or vinyl fences. Many wood fences can be maintained using water, a deck cleaner, and scrubbing brush. The process of installing a wooden fence is quite straightforward as there is a variety of quality wood to choose from.

 Due to the nature of wood which makes quality and effective wood readily available, there is the added advantage of versatility as there are many designs, styles, and options to choose from. You can choose your desired height for the fence for better cover; there is also the option of wooden gates which can be constructed as the client desires and the mounting of desired flowers along the length of the fence.

 The availability of materials used to construct a wooden fence also means that both installation and when needed, renovation and or repairs of wooden fences is done in the shortest amount of time possible.

There is also the added advantage of finishing the installation with beautiful paintings and patterns that would suit the wishes of the client.  The paint would give the fence a stunning and attractive outlook as there is a variety to choose from. 

What You Should Know About a Wooden Fence

Bad fences make terrible neighbors. It is important to note that the integrity side of the fence, that is the side with the nails and rails should face the house, while the good side faces the neighbors. This gives an aura of pleasantness to all who look at the fence and by extension, the house from the outside. A wooden fence beautifies the home, as it happens to be the first noticeable structure in the home from the outside.

It is also important to note that wooden fences are meant to be durable, hence the need to contact a competent firm to oversee the construction and maintenance of the said project. This is necessary as the experience that Moore construction has gathered over the years means we can work with you to give the best available wooden fence to reduce to the barest minimum, any risk that could be involved with works of construction in your home.

A major case against wooden fences is the complications that could arise as a result of a change in elevation in the fenced area. While this could come across as a genuine concern, it is worthy to note that a simple solution of elevating the fence as the construction goes on and vice versa has been prescribed, and the fence would be hinged on solid materials as the case may be.

Having a solid wooden fence as high as needed also provides the added comfort of privacy, as wood is neither transparent nor made to have see-through holes and this helps to keep out unwanted guests in the home and to give proper security that should come with a fence.
