Types of Wooden Fence Paneling
Pine Wood Fence Panels:
Pressure treated pine wooden fence panels are among the most popular due to the inexpensive cost of using pine.
Cedar and Cypress Fence Panels:
These choices are a little more expensive than pine but can handle sun and weather damage better.
Western Red Cedar Wood Fence Panels:
Resistant to rot, moisture, and weather damage, cedar fence panels are a great mid price option.
Spruce Wood Fence Panels:
Spruce fence panels are priced in the medium range and are attractive because they don’t have to be painted due to their natural attractiveness. Spruce needs to be treated or will fall victim to warping and bug infestation.
White Oak Wood Fence Panels:
Similar to spruce in that it can warp or bow but is naturally weather resistant.
Black Locust Wood Fence Panels:
Very durable and almost maintenance free, black locust fence panels are favored among owners of livestock or horses.
Composite Wood Fence Panels:
Durable and versatile, composite panels are also favored for being environmentally friendly.
Redwood Wood Fence Panels:
One of the most expensive wooden fence types, redwood panels are one of the most pleasurable ones to look at.
Tropical Hardwood Wood Fence Panels:
The most expensive fence panel type is tropical hardwood panels. Beautiful, heavy, durable, and dense, most owners of tropical hardwood fencing find the cost worth it.
Cost Considerations for your wooden fence installation:
While it might make sense that the longer a wooden fence, the more expensive it will be. But a lot of homeowners don’t think of the cost involved if the structure isn’t a linear shape. Different patterns and obstructions that a wood fence will have to go around will add more wooden posts, hardware, and labor causing the price to rise.
Raising your wooden fence installment from the average 6 feet to 8 feet can raise your material and labor costs by 20-30%. Homeowners should evaluate the need for the taller fence. The price can be even higher if you are using some of the more expensive wood panel types. A 6 foot privacy wooden fence should cover most homeowners needs. Animals and children have almost no chance of jumping over these and keep most prying eyes away. Taller wooden fence installments are usually installed to keep out intruders and can also be noise barriers. This should be discussed in detail with a fence contractor to see what your wood fence installment needs truly are. Masters Fencing can answer these questions and any other related to your new fence project.
Gates add a couple hundred dollars or more to your upcoming fence installation depending on the type of material used. Wooden fences don’t have to use wooden gates. Chain link and wrought iron gates are chosen a lot when property owners choose to go with another material other than wood. Wrought iron gates are more pricey but look great on a front yard wooden fence installation. Chain Link gates are a more affordable option but can be unsightly to look at so most property owners choose this gate type for the side and backs of the property. The size of the gate also affects the price. Standard gates are 4 feet wide. Make sure to cover all these options with your expert fence contractor from Masters Fencing, best fencing company in Birmingham!
A homeowner can save costs by painting, sealing, or staining their wooden fence but most choose to go with a professional. While it is cheaper, most find the labor involved more than worth the cost to have a professional fence contractor take care of the project. These of course are optional but if you wish to extend the life of your wooden fence then we definitely recommend putting a sealant on to keep it protected from the weather. Painting and staining make your fence look great but ultimately isn’t needed. Ask your fence contractor from Masters Fencing what all of your options are!
Lattice fence work and some other unique fence paneling types are very costly and are chosen for their style and not their durability. They add a large cost to your fencing project. It isn’t uncommon to double the price per wood fence panel when adding lattice work.
Post Caps/Fence Toppers:
Not very expensive per cap or topper, it’s the amount that you use that can significantly raise the price of your fencing project. There are a large variety of toppers to choose from including rails, beams, solar lights, etc. that can give your wooden fence installation a more appealing, finished look or be utilitarian and offer lighting. Pricing varies greatly based on material, amount used, and features so make sure to ask the expert fence contractors at Masters Fencing what is the best cap or topper option for your wooden fence installation.
