Board-on-board

  • Enhanced Privacy: One of the primary benefits of a board-on-board fence is the high level of privacy it provides. The overlapping boards create a solid barrier with no visible gaps, effectively shielding your outdoor space from prying eyes.
  • Aesthetically Pleasing: Board-on-board fences are visually appealing and add a touch of elegance to your property. The overlapping boards create a seamless, uniform appearance, giving your outdoor space a polished and finished look.
  • Value and Resale Appeal: Installing a board-on-board fence can increase the value and curb appeal of your property. Potential buyers often appreciate the privacy and aesthetics provided by this type of fencing, making it an attractive feature that may enhance the resale value of your home.

Side-by-side

  • Cost-Effective: Side-by-side fences are often more cost-effective compared to board-on-board fences. It takes fewer pickets to build your fence.
  • Privacy and Security: Side-by-side fences offer a decent level of privacy. As the fence ages, a quarter inch gap can be expected between each picket, reducing your privacy.
  • Classic and Versatile Appearance: Side-by-side fences have a timeless and classic look. Their simplicity and clean lines can contribute to a neat and cohesive aesthetic for your outdoor space.

Horizontal Board-on-board

  • 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.
  • Max Privacy: With your fence being board-on-board, no one can see through your fence, giving your backyard space maximal privacy.

Horizontal Side-by-side

  • 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.

Types Of Wood We Build With

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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of wood fence lasts the longest?

Quality construction is key to a long-lasting fence, but when it comes to material durability, cedar stands out. Widely favored in Texas, cedar wood offers natural resistance to decay and pests like termites, thanks to its inherent oils. Additionally, cedar remains stable, resisting warping or shrinking despite Texas's variable temperatures. You can expect 20 years out of a properly maintained cedar fence.

Is pine or cedar better for a fence?

Cedar is typically considered the more resilient and enduring choice between the two woods. It withstands the elements without requiring special treatments and has a minimal tendency to warp or shrink. Conversely, pine is more prone to issues like warping, buckling, and shrinking.

How long does it take to build a wood fence?

For typical yard dimensions, constructing a wooden fence with Texas Select Fencing usually takes 1-2 days. For more expansive areas, the installation might extend to 3 days. However, our team at Texas Select Fencing often streamlines this duration. Still, the exact time frame can differ based on the project's intricacy, weather conditions, and site accessibility.

How long does fence wood take to dry?

Generally, we recommend waiting about 1-2 months before applying any stain. This time allows the wood to adjust to our local conditions and attain an optimal moisture level for staining and sealing. Staining too soon can jeopardize the wood's integrity, potentially leading to mold growth and rot.

How much does it cost to install a wood fence?

We cater to a variety of budgetary needs, with options spanning from $27 to $68 per foot. Your final cost hinges on factors like fence length, height, and chosen materials. For a precise quote tailored to your preferences, please complete the form below!
