Types of Wooden Fences
Wood Fences and wood Gates are the most popular, because they are available in a variety of styles and lumber types. For instance, you can choose from pine, western red cedar, and other forms of wood.
Wood fencing style options:
A board-to-board wood fence, generally known as a full privacy fence and is constructed with an overlapping pattern of vertical slats, it isn’t the least expensive fence to build, but it remains visually impenetrable for its lifetime, even if the boards shrink in dry weather conditions.
Another advantage of the board-to-board style is that is not climbable from the outside. It is a good option for neighbors wishing to establish a boundary or a privacy barrier.
A Stockade Wood fence is constructed with wood boards placed tightly against one another, arranged as a solid panel.
Aside from its cost-effectiveness, stockade fencing provides privacy and security. They also help reduce noise and wind in your yard.
Many homeowners love the traditional and straightforward look of a wood stockade fence.
Shadow Box is the fence known as “the good neighbor fence”. Both sides of the fence look the same because the Shadowbox fence is constructed with spaces between the panels. And the wood pickets are installed front and back.
While offering you adequate privacy, the shadow box design ensures that you are not entirely detached from your surrounding environment. It also provides sufficient airflow across the fence.
Shadowbox fences are beautiful and have great curb appeal.
Picket fences are often used as decorative boundaries. This fence type is particularly prevalent in the United States, where the style has been used since America’s earliest colonial era, and it remains popular to date.
A Picket Fence’s unique feature is the space between the panels of the fence. This type of fence is used in both front and back yards.
When it comes to style, Horizontal Fences have replaced the vertical and picket fencing of yesteryears.
The horizontal planks can be spaced close together, with an eighth-inch gap between them for privacy; or with a quarter-inch to 1-inch opening between them for a light, open feel.
Another Horizontal Fence option is the solid-panel fence with an opening on top that creates privacy, while allowing light and air to pass through.
A Ranch Fence is also known as a Farm Fence. Designed for country life, this type of fence can be found across agricultural establishments all over the country.
However, its use is not limited to country use alone, as the strength of this type of fencing makes it an excellent choice for some residential and industrial establishments.
