Types Of Wood We Build With

Choosing the right type of wood to use for your ranch fence is an important decision. The type of wood you select will determine how much time and money you’ll have to put into long-term maintenance, as well as the lifespan of your fence. We primarily build our ranch fences from Western Red Cedar, but we do provide pressure-treated pine as a more budget-friendly option.

Western Red Cedar

  • Durability: Cedar is more durable and rot-resistant than pine, so it is more likely to last longer. You can expect to get 30 years from a cedar fence.
  • Strength: Cedar is a stronger and more stable wood than pine, so it is less likely to warp or twist over time.
  • Insect resistant: Cedar is naturally resistant to insects, while pine is more prone to insect damage.
  • Appearance: Cedar has a more attractive appearance than pine, with a warm, reddish-brown color and a fine, straight grain. Pine has a more yellowish color and a coarser, more uneven grain.
  • Cost: Cedar is generally more expensive than pine, due to its higher quality and durability.

Pressure Treated Pine

  • Cost: Pine is generally less expensive than cedar, so it can be a more budget-friendly option for a wood fence.
  • Maintenance: Compared to Cedar, pine will require more frequent staining to protect the wood from warping and rotting away.
  • Appearance: Pine can still look very high quality with the right stain.
  • Durability: You can expect to get 20 years from a pine fence.

Fence Orientations

Choosing the right type of wood to use in your fence is an important decision. The type of wood you select will determine how much time and money you’ll have to put into long-term maintenance, as well as the lifespan of your fence. We primarily build our wood fences from Western Red Cedar, but we do provide pine as a more budget-friendly option.


  • Traditional Aesthetics: Vertical fence boards often convey a more traditional and classic appearance. This orientation is commonly associated with traditional picket fences and can provide a charming, timeless look to your property.
  • Compatibility with Sloped Terrain: In landscapes with sloped or uneven terrain, a vertically oriented fence can be more compatible and easier to install. By adjusting the length of the fence boards or stepping them along the slope, you can maintain a consistent appearance and functional fence line.
  • Quick Installation: Building a fence with vertically oriented boards is often faster and easier compared to horizontal installations. Vertical boards can be installed more efficiently, reducing the time and effort required for construction.


  • Modern and Contemporary Aesthetics: Horizontal fence boards are often associated with modern and contemporary designs. This orientation can provide a sleek, stylish, and visually appealing look, contributing to a more contemporary aesthetic for your outdoor space.
  • Visual Width and Depth: Horizontal fence boards can create an illusion of increased width and depth, making your property appear more spacious. This orientation can be particularly advantageous for smaller yards or areas where you want to visually expand the space.

Ranch Fence Upgrades We Offer

There's many ways you can upgrade your ranch fence. From aesthetics to strength, there's a multitude of ways to make your ranch fence better. See some of our popular ranch fence upgrades below.

Top Cap

  • Enhanced Visual Appeal: A top cap adds a finishing touch to the fence, giving it a polished and cohesive look. It provides a horizontal line along the top of the fence, creating a visually pleasing and balanced appearance.
  • Sizes: We offer top caps in 2x6 and 2x8 sizes.
  • Protection from Water and Moisture: The top cap acts as a protective barrier, shielding the top edges of the fence boards from direct exposure to rainwater and moisture.

Steel Posts

  • Durability: Steel posts are highly durable and resistant to weathering, rot, and decay. They can withstand harsh environmental conditions, ensuring a longer lifespan for your fence.
  • Strength: Steel posts provide excellent structural support for the fence. They can handle the pressure from large livestock, heavy winds, or other external forces without bending or breaking.
  • Cost-Effective: While the upfront cost of steel posts may be slightly higher than wood posts, their durability and longevity make them cost-effective in the long run. You'll save on maintenance and replacement expenses.

Steel Gate Frame

  • Superior Strength: Steel gate frames provide exceptional strength and rigidity, ensuring that your gate remains sturdy and secure over time. Steel is known for its high tensile strength, making it highly resistant to bending, warping, or sagging that can occur with gate frames made of other materials.
  • Added Security: A steel gate frame offers enhanced security for your property. Its robust construction makes it difficult to breach, providing a reliable barrier against unauthorized entry and enhancing the overall security of your premises.


  • Enhanced Durability: Kickboards act as a protective barrier at the base of the fence, shielding it from moisture, soil, and ground-level damage. This added protection can significantly extend the lifespan of your fence.
  • Prevents Rot: One of the primary purposes of a kickboard is to prevent moisture from the ground, such as rain or irrigation, from saturating the fence's lower portion. By keeping the wood or other fencing materials dry, it helps prevent rot, decay, and insect damage.
  • Stability and Support: Kickboards add stability and support to the fence structure. They serve as a solid foundation, preventing posts from shifting or sinking into the ground, especially in areas with soft or uneven soil.
