Whatever the case, whether it's to keep other people's things out (noses, dogs, eyes) or to keep your stuff in (children, pets, sanity), choosing to build a fence leaves you with one big, resounding question. No, we're not talking about choosing between a vinyl fence and an aluminum fence (though we will in a minute); we're talking about how is the fence going to get up there?

If it is desired to stain the wood the stain can be applied before or after the pickets are attached. Be sure to use a high quality, heavy-bodied, oil based stain. The first application is the most important. To apply the stain do not use a garden sprayer or a roller as the stain will only rest on the surface of the wood. This will result in a fence that needs to be re-stained year after year. It is better to use a short (2 inches or less) thick-bristled brush. Using aggressive brush strokes work the stain into the wood. This does take a little more labor the first time. The brush will insure that the stain penetrates into the cells of the wood. When done properly the first year the fence will not need to be re-stained for up to five years. When the fence needs to be re-stained use a common garden sprayer.

Maintaining and Repairing a Wood Fence Wood tend to wear out over time because of exposure to the elements and also because of the possibility of insect damage. Consequently, wood fences need to be regularly maintained with waterproof sealant. If you fence is painted, a fresh coat will need to be added once in a while. If your fence posts are severely damaged, you can replace the fence post or repair the rotting wood by adding reinforcement to it. The key for wood fences is to keep them regularly maintained so that it looks nice and continues to provide the privacy or decoration for your house and yard.

Be sure that your Fence Builder is clear about the components of the proposed fence. Is it all vinyl or a composite? And is it premium or builder's grade? With synthetics and composites, it's best to see an actual sample rather than relying on a picture, so you can feel the texture and density yourself.

Also known as ornamental fencing, it was originally made from wrought iron. Steel or aluminum are now incorporated into production. Most commercial and industrial fences are made using welded or assembled steel. Aluminum is more common in the residential arena. Iron fences can be designed with pickets above or below the fence's top rail. Also, aside from its customized, ornamental appeal, iron fencing provides security by keeping unwanted prowlers out and pets and children in the yard.

Having considered a business as a viable option to make fences for you, the final check can be done by asking them to provide you with references of those whom they have provided business and the fences that have been installed subsequently have always been considered the best that there are.

Other fences do not stand up to the test of time like metal does. Some of these types of fences require a good deal of work to keep them functional. This can be time consuming for many people who do not wish this work.

There are hand tools that can do the job however these require fairly extensive physical effort and should only be considered for smaller jobs. There are gas powered tools which can make quick work of even large jobs requiring many post holes to be drilled however this powerful machinery can be dangerous to use and has a bad reputation as being something that has the potential to cause injury.
