Cedar Privacy Fence Installation
Cedar is the top of the line in wood fencing. Cedar has less tendency to warp and shrink, and weathers extremely well, when compared to treated pine. Cedar is initially more costly than treated pine, but it will maintain its appearance longer, and requires less overall maintenance. Cedar is naturally resistant to insects and decay. A standard Cedar Privacy Fence is built with cedar pickets and treated pine posts and runners. Cedar posts and runners available by request. Posts are set on average 8’ apart.
Save time and money by having Memphis Fencing Company install pre-stained fencing. You can choose to have all components (pickets, runners, and posts) pre-stained, or just the pickets. Available for cedar only.
Treated Pine Privacy Fence
A standard Treated Pine Privacy Fence is built with treated pine pickets, posts, and runners. By nature, treated pine will have splits and cracks in it. Treated pine does not have loose knots or knot holes. Treated pine is more prone to shrink and warp than cedar. Once the lumber is treated and begins to dry out, it can twist and warp. Over time, the spacing between pickets may increase up to ½”. Wood shrinkage and warpage is unpredictable and variable. Posts are set on average 8’ apart.
Horizontal fencing is gaining popularity in the Memphis area. These fences are built with cedar pickets and treated pine posts. Not available with treated pine pickets. Horizontal fencing is built with 5 ½” pickets, 3 ½” pickets, or alternating between 3 ½” and 5 ½” pickets. Front and top are seamed with 1” x 4” cedar boards. Posts are typically set 6’ apart. All styles have a standard 1” spacing between picket, but are available with no spacing by request. The height of the fence can range from 70” – 74” (approximately 6’) depending on the spacing requested. Horizontal fences will stair step and cannot follow the flow of the ground.
