2 Types of Wood Fences for Plano Homes
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 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 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.
Fence Construction Methods
Tall Privacy Fences
If privacy or security is your highest concern for a fence, there are several options to choose from. With a cedar fence, options are:
Board on board
Adding Trim to top of fence
Decorative Caps on top of the fence
Depending on the HOA and city ordinances, height will play a factor in the fence style. Let Fence Makeovers help choose the right height and style of fence for your backyard enjoyment. Our team of estimators knows what cities will allow and what they won’t. We will also file for the permit if needed!
Horizontal fences are becoming a popular choice for homes in the Dallas area. With a unique curb appeal, this stylish fence solution helps your backyard to feel more open and spacious than a standard vertical fence. Our estimator can help you understand the differences in vertical vs horizontal fences, and even provide rendering options of these different fences so you can decide on the best option for your home and neighborhood. With a written rendering as well as picture of the fence style vertical or horizontal all you have to do is submit to your HOA for approval.
Traditional Vertical Fence
The traditional vertical fence design is the most common style of fence which most neighborhoods have when the home was built by the builder. Many HOAs require a certain type of fence determined in the bylaws. Having a traditional style is more affordable and highly customizable for a beautiful yet durable fence solution. This option is perfect for those who are on a limited budget or may just be looking to have a new fence installed. Many landlords recommend this type of fence to help maintain their rental properties.
Fence Add-On Options
We offer several add-on options to further enhance the beauty of a new fence installation or upgrade the existing fence for your home in Plano.
The trim on the fence will cover the tops of the dog eared pickets with a piece of trim on each side or one side of the fence.
A cap board top is often a 2×4 rail that sits on top of the fence, flattening the fence’s upper profile into a straight line.
A kickboard is a piece of wood that’s placed on the bottom of a fence and is just above the ground.
