Benefit #1 

A good fence provides security. One of the most common reasons cited by homeowners wanting a fence is to keep pets and children safely within the perimeter.  A good fence is also a big deterrent for keeping people out that should be kept out.

 

Benefit #2  

We all like our privacy and a fence does just that if installed properly. Whether you are having a backyard cookout or sun bathing, you don't want your nosy neighbors knowing your business.  You can also have a semi-private fence installed for a more pleasing look.

 

Benefit #3   

A nicely maintained fence will definitely improve curb appeal. Maintaining means ensuring pickets are not broken or warped, posts aren't leaning, and color is maintained by regularly applying stain or sealer.  If selling your home an appraiser will either add or deduct value depending on its condition.

Common issues tend to be warping or pulling away from the posts which then cause the panel to lean.

Frequently asked questions

How much does it cost to install a privacy wood fence?


The cost to install a wood privacy fence depends on various factors:

  • lineal footage of fence to be installed
  • the height of the fence 4ft, 5ft, or 6ft
  • type of wood used

Is a fence permit required to install or repair a fence?


Per the Development Services Department of San Antonio: All new fences require a permit. For repairs or replacement of an existing fence, a permit is only required if the total repair or replacement exceeds 25% of the continous length of the existing fence. Here is a link to the actual source DSD.




What kind of stains are best for fences?


Exterior stains usually come as follows:

  • clear
  • transparent (with a hint of color)
  • semi-transparent
  • solid color
Stains and sealers help prolong the life of fences by keeping the UV rays from damaging the wood. Between the UV rays, rain, hail, cold, and heat, fences take a beating and slowly start to turn brown or black in color. Eventually they dry out enough where they will start to crack and eventually fall apart. Clear stains and sealers don't add any color to the fence and their primary function is to repel water from penetrating the wood. Transparent stains have a hint of color so you get protection and nice looks. These allow the grain of wood to show. Semi-transparent stains provide more protection than the previous two because the stain itself has some particles that help fill in pores in the wood. Solid colr stains provide the most protection and tend to last longer than all of the other mentioned above. They also provide an even finish--not as blotchy. The more solid the stain the less you will have to re-apply in the future.




Can you stain a brand new fence?


Brand new pressur treated fences must dry out for 60 days prior to applying any kind of stain or sealer. The wood has preservatives that will not allow the stain or sealer from penetrating the wood and thus will cause premature peeling. Brand new cedar or kiln dried wood does not have any kind of preservative so those can be stained immediately. They do need to be power washed to get dirt off of them but after that they are ready to be stained.




How long does it take to complete a fence project?


It all depends if an existing fence has to be removed and the length of the fence. A standard privacy fence 200ft long will take about 4 days to complete with a good crew. If you ask your frined or relative to do this work it may take them a couple of weeks.
