There's a range of wood fence styles out there, offering varying levels of privacy and unique design elements. Explore our collection to find the perfect style that not only enhances security but also adds a touch of charm and distinctiveness to your outdoor space.
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.
There's many ways you can upgrade your wood fence. From aesthetics to strength, there's a multitude of ways to make your wood fence better. See some of our popular wood fence upgrades below.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!

Board-on-board fences have 2 layers of pickets. The first layer has a 3 1/2” gap between each pocket, then we use the second layer of pickets to cover the gap between each board creating a 100% private fence.
Side-by-side fences are your standard picket fence where the boards sit flush up against each other. After the installation of a side-by-side fence, the boards will shrink creating a small 1/4” gap between each board.
A horizontal fence is your modern fence option. This fence style is a great option for those who prefer a modern look and want to open up their backyard space. They cost the same as a vertical fence so there's no added cost to choosing a horizontal fence. The only difference is in style you choose -- board-on-board or side-by-side.
This is your more budget friendly horizontal fence option. This is a great modern fence option that gives you the privacy you want.
