Privacy fences are generally one of the more popular options for homeowners when purchasing a fence. Their durability and affordability make them a no brainer for the average consumer. Not to mention the actual privacy they provide!
What Are They?
A privacy fence is made of wood. The most common types of wood used are spruce, cedar, and pine. Each of these various types of wood has different longevity, considering the type and the maintenance that is required for fencing. Privacy fences can last anywhere from 5-40 years. Our most common and durable material is cedar. Cedar is used in a majority of privacy fences and provides the longest life for a fence. Treated vs. untreated wood will also be a factor in your fence choices. At Roark Fencing, we provide many different design options and materials to choose from.
How Are They Installed?
Wood fences are typically an easy installation. They usually take the least amount of time, despite being the most common. Once the area is measured and marked off, holes are dug for the fence posts. These will require a stable base in order to support the weight of the fence. Concrete and gravel are added in order to create a solid foundation that will harden and create support. Next, we attach the rails and fence boards to the cemented posts. Lastly, post caps are added if it is requested by the client.
