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!

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.

Styles We Offer

When it comes to residential or commercial wood fences in Melissa, we primarily offer two types: board-on-board & side-by-side. Both of these fence styles come with optional upgrades such as corbels, top cap, boxed posts & other trims.


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.

Horizontal Board-on-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.

Horizontal 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.

Why Choose Texas Select Fencing As Your Melissa Fence Company?

Every wood fence we build in Melissa comes with the following features:

Galvanized Steel Posts

We use 2-3/8" galvanized steel posts that will outlive you and me. They're strong, won't rust, and gives your fence the structural support it needs to last as long as possible.

The main cause of pickets rotting is because of direct ground contact. We keep your pickets safe and off the ground by putting a 2x6 pressure-treated kickboard across the entire bottom of your fence, elevating your fence pickets and giving them the best chance at lasting you decades.

3-Year Craftsmanship Warranty

We want to make sure your investment is safe and you get the value we're promising you. Each wood fence we build comes with a 3-year craftsmanship warranty. This warranty will cover the work we performed. If your pickets crack, your walk gate becomes inoperable, or anything else fails due to poor installation, we will help you out same-week. We honor our warranties and it's important to us that our customers receive the well-built fence we promised them.
