What To Look For In Wood Privacy Fencing
Wood privacy fencing can be found almost anywhere you look. They are a great choice for those looking to secure their properties from intruding animals or to establish a private oasis for your family and friends around the pool. Privacy fences are typically anywhere from 4ft to 8ft in height and panels should be built anywhere from 6ft to 10ft in length between posts. Your post size and style should reflect how decorative your wood privacy fence will be. If you’re adding a top cap or fascia boards and have exposed posts, you may consider using 6×6 pressure treated posts instead of 4×4 pressure treated posts. 6×6 posts are obviously larger, heavier, and will be more sturdy than 4×4 posts. 4×4 posts are usually sufficient for basic privacy fences with hidden posts, using just pickets and standard framing boards. Post length should be at least two feet greater than your fence height, as you or the installer should be submerging it anywhere from 18 – 24 inches into dirt. It is generally recommended to use Pressure Treated posts as they tend to hold up better overtime underground, delaying the rotting process. Wet concrete should be used to secure the posts in the post holes – you can take additional precautions to secure the post such as rebar or gravel to help protect the viability of the post and subsequently, your entire fence.
What To Look For in Wood Privacy Installers
While we don’t offer installation services directly, we can give you tips on what to look for when choosing an installer. 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 any surprises along the way is to do your research and ask the right questions before mistakes are made!
