One of the ways to add value to your home is by building a fence. There are various designs of fencing that can give your home a great look, as well as increase its privacy and security. Fencing can be customized to meet the designs you have in mind, and with the help of a reputable company, such as Platinum Fence & Patio, homeowners are able to come up with a fence that is suitable for their home. For example, you can consider using a wooden fence to secure your home and give it an appealing look; wooden fences are one of the most popular types.
The popularity of wooden fences can mainly be attributed to the fact that they are affordable, and that they offer a natural look that compliments the features of nearly any landscape or outdoor garden. In addition, wooden fencing has been known to offer great privacy. Board on board is the best wooden fencing style that offers total privacy — the boards overlap one another, so no one can see into your yard.
Stockade wood fencing can also offer privacy, but without overlapping. The durability of wooden fences can be enhanced by putting in place the necessary maintenance measures, such as staining and sealing, which protects the fence against fading, climate changes, and weathering. Platinum Fence and Patio offer wood fencing made by subjecting treated pine and cypress to pressure, so the wood fences are resistant to termites. Both standard and customized wooden fences are available to clients.
The three designs of wooden, privacy fences include a basic privacy fence, lattice-top, and shadowbox. Most of these designs are made using cedar, cypress, and pressure-treated pine. The height of a privacy fence is between 6 to 8 feet, and the most popular material is the treated pine. Treated pine is highly preferred because it is long lasting and affordable. Cedar can also last for a long time, but is more costly. Out of the three types of wood, cypress lasts the longest, but it is often hard to find. Privacy fences, in most neighborhoods, are made using treated pine by putting pickets together. Initially, it is hard to see through the privacy fence, but as time goes by, gaps develop due to the shrinking of the treated pine, so it is important to replace your fence as soon as gaps begin to develop, in order to further ensure privacy and security, as well as the fence’s aesthetic qualities.
