Looking for a Wood Fencing Contractor Near You?
When we talk about wooden fences and gates we really can’t do it without talking about how these gates are classic and things like that. Pretty much everyone that we have met has some nostalgic memory about a wooden fence. We are all for digging up the past, but we can’t deny that wood has fallen a little out of favor with people in recent years. We understand that you don’t want to deal with the splinters and the “high maintenance” factor it is supposed to have. Those are key points that we think we can dispute and bring a lot more people back to original wood fencing!
When selecting a type of lumber for your fence, consider the local weather. Do you live in a rainy area or a dry area? Does your area reach freezing temperatures or above 100-degree temperatures? Does the weather fluctuate or remain relatively stable? Choosing the proper wood for your climate will deter decay and provide a long-lasting fence.
The next thing to be aware of is the wood species' susceptibility to insect infestation. If the wood you choose does not have a natural repellent or is not pressure treated, termites could take up residence and eat away at your fence, leaving it to rot and fall apart.
You Know What You Are Going To Get
As we mentioned these are the types of fences that we really don’t have to explain to people. For the most part, people know or have a mental image already built in about what a wooden gate looks like. Most bad experiences come from worn down old homes and we understand that factor. In this case, you are getting a new gate and you can build it and shape it as you would have imagined! So don’t worry about old worn down gates just yet!
Natural Wood vs Hybrids
These days there are different types of wood to choose from. Not that there wasn’t before as different types of tree barks have always existed. What we mean though is that these days you can build fences out of hybrid woods that were modified in a lab. The hybrid woods are usually a lot more durable and you are still getting the look and feel of actual wood. They are also a bit more expensive. They may be something that you want to consider though when you ask us to build that new fence for you!
Color & Varnish
White picket fences were a thing once. A lot of homes in American boasted them. If you are looking for this type of fashion statement added to your home we would be more than happy to provide that. We can use different types of colors in your vinyl fences as well. The main benefit that you have in going with us with regards to coloring is the fact that you are not going to be limited by a color scale that you could get from your local home remodeling store. We are totally willing to go out of our way to help you find that perfect color that you are looking for!
A lot of the fences that you see these days, still out there have been around for quite a while. If you are under the Florida sun and humidity all day you know all too well that it is not exactly forgiving. This means that certain signs of wear and tear can show up here and there. Even if we were not the ones who built your fence in the first place we can be the ones to fix it!
