Semi-Privacy Fence Homeowners who want partial privacy without feeling closed in can choose a semi-privacy fence. These are typically shorter than regular privacy fencing, with small spaces between the boards. Adjusting the gap width and board heights can create aesthetically pleasing designs. Try using tall, thin boards and placing them 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch apart. The slotted effect will make the fence seem more open, while the height will provide the illusion of extra privacy.
Privacy fences serve to provide the homeowner with seclusion and an intimate setting in the back or front yard. Usually six to eight feel tall, privacy fences are common in both urban and suburban environments.
Cost The size, style, and material will all influence the cost. A larger fenced in yard will require more materials than a small fenced in area. A chain link fence or wrought iron fence will incur a different cost than a wooden fence. A short wooden fence will cost less than a tall wooden privacy.
A general rule of thumb to estimate the cost of many home improvement projects is to calculate the materials cost and double it to determine the total project cost when using a contractor. For most fence projects this method will overestimate the project cost by 10-20% so it can be used as a conservative approximation. Installing a wood privacy fence is a significant project due to the amount of work, but not too difficult for the typical homeowner and the cost savings can be substantial. The American Fence Association estimates the average cost of privacy fence installation at approximately $17 to $24 per linear foot for a licensed, bonded, and insured contractor (2013 figures). This estimate doesn't include sales tax or permit/inspection fees that may apply in your locality.
Now that all the posts are in place and the concrete has cured enough for you to continue the project it is time for you to put up the fence stringers. These horizontal connection points between the posts are what you will mount the fence boards onto. You should use a minimum of two stringers for any size fence and as many as required to make sure that you have no more than a 24 inch gap between stringers. The method of attaching fence boards that you use will depend completely on the design and style of fence that you have chosen to build. Consider renting or using a pneumatic nail gun for the process of putting up the fence boards. Using screws is ideal however somewhat overkill for most fence projects. Using a regular hammer and nails causes a fair bit of trauma to the new fence and still only somewhat cured concrete fence posts. Using a nail gun for putting up the fence boards can be a huge timesaver.
