Wood and Wire Fencing

Wood and Wire Fencing


Construction of Wood and Wire Fencing:

As is with all Fence Workshop™ fences, our wood and wire fences are fully constructed on site. All pressure treated posts are set in belled holes with premixed concrete and Quick-rok™ for extra stability and longevity. The fence is fully framed before the wire is stretched to the perfect tension, nailed into place and often followed up with cover boards (1×4 or 1×6 strips of lumber used to hide where the wire attaches to the fence posts and or framing).

What type of wood to use?

Due to it’s lower cost, wood and wire fences are most commonly constructed of pressure treated pine lumber, here in Georgia. Other lumber choices that we offer include cedar, cypress and oak.  

What type of wire to use?

The two most common types of wire include welded wire and woven wire. Welded wire is (regularly referred to as hog wire) and is perfect for smaller pets. Choose from both regular galvanized welded steel wire and this same mesh with a black coating. Woven wire is stronger than the welded wire and the perfect choice for larger animals.

Wood board and wooden post and rail fencing in Georgia, Florida and North Carolina.Wood board fencing is a classic fence option for those customers looking to create property lines or enclose large farm animals. They are also aesthetically pleasing on farmland properties. Perhaps best of all, they are generally going to be less expensive than almost any other type of fencing on the market. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do your research before installing. Fence Workshop is the fence expert for wood board fencing, and while we do not currently supply this type of material, we want to provide all the information you need to make sure you make the right choices with whichever type of fencing you decide to use. Read on to get helpful tips for your wood board fence installation, or what to look for in a fencing professional.

A Note for Small Animal & Pet Owners:

Wood board fences can be adapted to have galvanized or coated wire attached to them to help contain small animals. This is more commonly seen in rural or residential applications.

Building Board Fences:

All wood board fences are not created equally! We recommend setting all fence posts in a hydraulic concrete which makes the posts set much faster, more accurately and much stronger. Pay strong attention to the spacing of the posts and to the flow of the rails, keeping them as symmetrical as possible. Some installation companies will allow small dips in the grade along a fence line which will interrupt the aesthetic flow of your fence. Fence Workshop™ recommends adding longer posts to accommodate for the dip, thus allowing the rails to run smooth and straight. This adds a picturesque look to any farm, pasture or property. It’s should be your installer’s goal to exceed your expectations when building board fences and we suggest asking these your installer these questions before hiring them for the job. No one likes surprises once a project has already begun!

Wood Privacy Fencing

Wood Privacy Fencing



Wood Privacy Fencing by the Pros:

When it comes increasing the privacy, security, and value of your home, our gorgeous wood privacy fencing will transform your property in ways you have to see to believe. Fence Workshop™ provides ideas and information for those looking to add wood privacy fencing to their property. Each wood privacy fence found on our site has been built by our fencing professionals, so we can provide all the tips you need to build it yourself. While we don’t sell lumber to the public at this time, we still strive to provide as much information as possible to those looking to add fencing to their property, regardless of whether we can provide the materials or installation. At Fence Workshop™ we love unique fencing and we have the knowledge to help get you a few steps closer to making your fence project a reality.

Wood Privacy Fence Installation:

While we do not provide installation services, we think there are a few things people should know when installing a wood privacy themselves, or hiring an installation company. Make sure your fence installer is licensed and insured and knowledgable in the latest installation standards. Ask them how they secure the fence posts and at what depth, how many rails of framing they’ll include, and what kind of warranty they include on their installation practice and materials. If your property has inclinations and declinations, know whether the fence will be built to follow the contour of the ground, or if it will be stepped. The latter will create gaps at the bottom of the fence but may be more aesthetically pleasing depending on the style of wood fence you’ve chosen. Wood gates can become a source of frustration overtime as the natural material is bound to make movements due to weather changes and general use. Know what your installer is doing to mitigate these issues. One such precaution is using Cedar framing on gates to reduce the weight. Another good standard to follow is the use of 6×6 posts on all wood gates, regardless of size, as they’ll be stronger and less likely to sag. Remember, the key to avoiding surprises along the way is to do your research and ask the right questions before mistakes are made!

Wood Privacy Fence Ideas:

When looking for unique wood privacy fence ideas, we have a few suggestions to help you get started. First, start by checking out the privacy fence designs we have provided, and see if there is any specific styles or features that you like. Keep in mind that we encourage our customers to mix and match different upgrades to come up with a unique design. With over ten common upgrades, there are literally thousands of possible unique designs. Next, we suggest checking out magazines for up-to-date design ideas. Most books on fencing will only have standard and outdated fence ideas, so home and garden design magazines are your best sources. In terms of online resources, a Google, Yahoo or Bing image search is another great way to find different fence ideas.

Design Your Own Unique Privacy Style With Our Wood Privacy Fence Upgrades:

  • Exposed Posts/Inset Pickets

A fence with exposed posts simply has the pickets inset between the posts, rather than across the face of the posts. This allows the fence posts to be visible when facing the front of the fence.

  • Fascia Boards

A “fascia” is a board that is placed horizontally on the face of the fence. These are used to frame the front of the fence and add asthetic appeal.

  • Top Boards

A top board is a board that lays flat on the top of each privacy fence section. Most commonly, we use 1×4’s, 2×4’s, 1×6’s and 2×6’s for top boards.

  • Lattice Top

The possibilities for a lattice-topped fence are endless. From vertical and horizontal lattice to traditional diagonal and custom designs, you can design and build any and all styles of lattice for your fencing. Just make sure your installation professional has a clear idea of what the end product should look like.

  • Cut Post Tops

Post tops can be cut any way you desire, but here are a few common ones: light dado, dual dado, french gothic and pointed.

  • Post Caps

Post cap options are seemingly endless, from copper and aluminum to solar lighted and stained glass.

  • Height

Standard wood privacy fences are generally built in either 6 or 8 foot heights, but don’t be scared to ask your installation professional for different height options.

  • Lumber Upgrade

While basic privacy fence lumber is usually MCQ™ pressure treated pine, about 1/3 of wood fencing customers upgrade to western red cedar. Other less common lumber upgrades include oak, cypress and bamboo.

  • Seal & Stain

While all the lumber most full service fence companies use when constructing fences is either chemically treated or naturally resistant to rot and decay, we strongly suggest water sealing your fencing to extend the life and natural beauty of the wood. Sealing a fence should be done a few months after installation, when the lumber is well dried. Staining wooden fencing is another popular option that will allow your fence to be almost any color desired.

Wood Privacy Fence Lumber:

Most privacy fences are built using pressure-treated pine followed by western red cedar. Other special ordered lumber includes oak, cypress, redwood, ipe (iron wood), teak and bamboo. Many of our privacy fence idea templates incorporate both cedar and pine, due to different advantages provided by each. Most commonly this is done by using pressure-treated pine posts when building a cedar fence. The advantage of this is the affordability of pressure-treated pine posts over cedar, and because setting cedar posts in concrete can cause water to pool and rot the base of the post. Three solutions to this problem include coating the base of the post with a resin-based moisture barrier, using metal sleeves over the base of the posts, or water sealing and wrapping them with a thick tape such as Tyvek Straight Flash™ or Vycor™. This should be done up to about 1″ above the top of the concrete.

  • Pine

MCQ™ pine lumber boasts a more natural look than other pressure-treated lumber. The treatment process is certified as an Environmentally Preferable Product by the Scientific Certification System. The lumber comes with a lifetime residential and agricultural limited warranty against structural damage caused by termites and fungal decay. MCQ pine lumber uses a copper-based preservative with a co-biocide and is building code compliant ICC-ES Reports, ESR-1980, ESR-2240. We suggest water sealing your pine fence no sooner than 3 months after installation.

  • Cedar

Western red cedar lumber provides natural beauty and durability that lends itself well to any backyard project. It has a natural resistance to rot and decay and usually comes with some kind of manufacturer’s warranty covering these issues. Cedar lumber varies in color from a red, golden brown, light blond and dark chocolate. A major advantage of cedar over pine, is the dimensional stability, meaning it is less likely to warp or change shape. While the application of water sealant is not necessary, it will extend the life and original beauty of the wood.

  • Bamboo

Quality bamboo privacy fence is what we suggest for those who dislike the look of traditional wood fencing because it creates privacy without the look or feel of a barrier. Bamboo panels are finely crafted and built to last. Bamboo is a great option when planning and designing your privacy fence and look great in a variety of landscapes.

Wood Privacy Fence Prices:

Wood privacy fence prices will depend on how many upgrades from the basic “privacy fence” you may want to incorporate. We have listed suggested pricing based on our experience in the fencing business, but these prices should only be looked at as starting points. Your location, amount of footage and your chosen fence company’s installation practices will affect the pricing of your fence.
