Are you considering adding a fence to your home? If so, there are at least five elements you'll want to consider: purpose and style, the materials, needed documentation and regulations, the installation itself, and maintenance afterwards. This tutorial focuses on residential fencing, not fencing for commercial or agricultural purposes.
Security Fences Making your premises secure from entry by trespassers begins with erecting a security fence. Installing wrought iron fence designs around the entire perimeter of the backyard works best. Its height should be as tall as legal maximum to deter thieves from even thinking about climbing over onto your land. While you're at it, don't forget to weld or bolt reinforced gates onto appropriate places along the backyard security fence.
The most common style of privacy fence is the basic, treated pine, privacy fence which is made by simply butting pickets together so that it's difficult to see between them. This is the style that you see used in most neighborhoods to give homeowners privacy in their backyards. A lot of people have the misconception that once they get one of these fences built that nobody will be able to see through the fence. This is not the case most of the time. Pressure treated wood has a tendency to shrink as it dries out. This means that even if your fence is built with all the boards touching tight together, gaps will eventually form between the pickets in almost all cases.
Ask for references and look at the track record of fence companies offering their services. Do they finish the work on time? What is the type of warranty that they offer on the work they provide?
There are three wood privacy fence designs that rank among the top. These include the lattice-top, shadowbox and your basic privacy fence. Cedar, cypress and pressure treated pine are the most common types of wood used to construct these fences which usually range from 6 to 8 feet tall. You will sometimes see these privacy fence designs used for fences that are less than 6 feet tall, but they aren't really considered privacy fences. Any fence less than 6 feet tall is usually there for decoration or to keep in a pet and are not recommended for privacy.
