Depending on the homeowner’s end goal and the style of the house itself, wood fences can sometimes fill the need for both form and functionality. For instance, if your chief purpose is to have a semblance of privacy or to add visual appeal to your home, there are many wooden fence styles that can address these requirements. For others, the choice is not so clear-cut. When endeavoring to provide as much security as possible to one’s property, a metal or stone fencing would be more appropriate under the circumstances, disregarding the fact that wooden fencing may be a better fit for the style of your house.
Cedar fence designs are visually appealing, not to mention they have an amazing scent about them. When you’re looking for a fencing option which will enhance the home, create a spectacular finish to your overall design and make a statement, then cedar is definitely the choice to go with.
Wood fencing may be a good choice for its aesthetics but on a more practical level, wood fences best serve two principal functions: privacy and durability. For these two important uses, several wood fence designs may be used: Stockade fence. With the wood slats vertically aligned without spaces in between and the tops pointed out, stockade fencing is one of the most appropriate wood fence designs when the intention is to afford absolute privacy from the outside. Solid board fence. Solid board fencing is also a good design alternative to provide a complete visual barrier from onlookers. It also serves as a good noise barrier and adds some degree of security as well. For a more decorative finish, a solid board fence can be combined with lattice work on top. Lattice fencing. Lattice fences are a popular choice for fences that give a semblance of privacy and yet allow for some air and sunlight at the same time. Lattice slats may be laid out diagonally for diamond-shaped spaces, but can also be placed vertically and horizontally to create square-shaped openings.
The most common style of privacy fence is the basic, treated pine, privacy fence which is made by simply butting pickets together so that it’s difficult to see between them. This is the style that you see used in most neighborhoods to give homeowners privacy in their backyards. A lot of people have the misconception that once they get one of these fences built that nobody will be able to see through the fence. This is not the case most of the time. Pressure treated wood has a tendency to shrink as it dries out. This means that even if your fence is built with all the boards touching tight together, gaps will eventually form between the pickets in almost all cases.
