My 15 year old fence looks great and I would recommend Fence Makeovers to my friends and neighbors.

From their first visit to finish, the Makeover team worked hard and non stop in nearly 100 degree temps to repair the damages and make the rest of our fence look like new.

They worked with our schedule even with all the rain. We saved a ton of money on just restoring our fence and having it re-stained. Quick and easy process.

Carrollton Fence Company Offers 2 Types of Wood Fences

Cedar Fences

A cedar fence is the best option when repairing or replacing the fence.  Our premium cedar fence options offers the style, strength, durability, and the best value. Most would assume that a cedar fence would be costly and outside their budget yet when our estimators walk through the property they soon find out it is more economical to install a cedar fence. Value, quality and durability is the best option for fences.

Pressure Treated Pine Fences

Pressure-treated pine is a more budget friendly option yet for long term is highly not recommended! The pine wood tends to warp more quickly, rot faster and doesn’t stain as well as cedar wood. Most builders install pine fences because it is cheaper for them. Maintenance is much higher for a pine fence. At Fence Makeovers we do not recommend a pine fence. Price wise cedar is not much more than pine so for longevity and less maintenance our recommendation is cedar wood fence. Fence Makeovers has the ability to install a pine fence on your property just ask our estimators.

Fence Post Options

Metal Posts

Metal fence posts are the stronger, longer lasting, and less burdensome option we offer for fence installation. The beauty of a metal fence post is that under normal circumstances they will last for 25+ years. While they have a little more upfront cost, their durability and strength will pay for themselves very quickly.

Wood Posts

Wood posts offer a consistent appearance for your fence a installation project. Because they are wood, that makes the posts more susceptible to rotting, graying like the fence as well as warping.  Replacement costs will happen more frequently than the metal posts.
