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.
White picket fence designs vary dramatically, enabling homeowners to choose the style they feel will benefit the overall design of their home. Unlike privacy fencing, picket fences leave gaps between the wooden slates, while providing a style, elegant and visually appealing surrounding to any home. These options were originally used in colonial architecture, but are one of the most recognized styles of fencing available on the market today. In fact, they have grown so popular that anyone who thinks of a family home, immediately thinks of a house with a white picket fence. When choosing this type of surrounding for the home, it’s important to know that you don’t have to go white. There is no rule book to say this is the only color you must use to create that spectacular finish to your overall design. In fact, many homeowners choose darker colors to complement their home.
Many people visualize living in a house that has a white picket fence, which resembles a perfect version of the American Dream. Most picket fencing is around three feet high and made of redwood or cedar. Of course, such fences serve to accessorize more than protect the backyard. Thus, picket fence designs typically vary the most and afford best chances to customize.
Of the three types of wood I mentioned above, treated pine is the most popular material for building wood privacy fences. This is because it cost less than other types of wood and will last a long time when it’s exposed to the outdoor weather. A lot of people choose to go with cedar when building their fence because of the red color and how it holds up to the weather. What most people don’t realize is that after a couple years, you can’t hardly tell the difference between a pine fence and a cedar fence. They both turn to a grayish color and last around the same amount of time. The main difference between the two is the price of cedar is much higher. Cypress probably last the longest out of the three, but it can sometimes be hard to find, and it costs more than pine.
