You'll hear the expression 'pressure treated pine' used often, but realize that process does not exempt the wood from potential damage from insects or weather. Pressure treating will help limit the breakdown of the wood, but additional sealers and periodic painting or staining are needed to extend the fence's lifespan and keep it's appearance from deteriorating. In almost any neighborhood, you can see fencing that has a driftwood gray hue. That's pressure treated pine that wasn't sealed and painter (or stained) after installation. Ideally, you'll seal your pine fencing and then paint or stain it every two years or as needed.

Most chain link fences will have that standard, "silver" look to them, but they come in a surprisingly wide range of colors, qualities, sizes, and types. Chain link fences are usually coated with galvanized zinc, giving them that silver color, which protects them from rusting. They also come in a variety of gauges and post sizes. The rule of thumb here is the smaller the gauge number, the tougher the fence. Conversely, the wider the post, the stronger it will be. Wide posts are typically used at corners with smaller posts along the runs.

Such fencing is seen very frequently in rural locales and is most often made from wood. The main drawback to split rail wooden fence designs is frequent painting. It is also common for horses to attempt escape by eating their way out of wooden fences. Besides putting a dent in your pocket, this can be quite hazardous to equestrian health. The bright side is that installing vinyl split rail fencing easily solves both problems. Vinyl fences stand up to decades of exposure to the harshest elements with no sign of rotting or rusting. Not to mention that vinyl needs virtually no maintenance.

Most wood fences are installed in 8 foot sections so measure the perimeter of the property using a reel tape measure or surveyor's wheel and divide by 8. Pace off the distance to get a rough estimate or for existing fences count the existing fence posts and measure the length of 1 panel. The height of the fence will also have a major impact on the cost - most suburban privacy fences are six foot tall picket fences in one of the many styles. Eight foot and ten foot heights are also options for additional security, to obscure eyesores or for sound control purposes.

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.

Careful measurement is a necessity if you want to purchase the proper quantity of materials and avoid problems during installation. It is always important to check your property's boundary lines when measuring for fence construction. You do not want to have to make your neighbor upset and have to remove a just installed fence because you did not stay within your property boundaries. Another important item to check during fence measurement and before fence construction is your local ordinances and homeowners association rules. You need to make sure that the fence you build meets all required specifications.
