HELP! Backyard Fencing Solutions

So, you need a backyard fence, not sure where to start? You are in the right place, that's what we do.

Backyard fencing is broken down into three fence materials: premium vinyl, black aluminum, and natural wood fencing

Backyard Fencing Objectives

Is the fencing for containment for children, pets, or senior adults? Maybe it's for privacy or marking a property boundary. By clarifying the objective for your fence you will narrow down the choices.

How Much Time Do You Want to Spend Maintaining Your Fence

Natural wood fence is initially the least expensive, but quickly surpasses the other fences in cost when factoring in staining and replacing parts. Premium Vinyl and Black Aluminum fencing choices are maintenance free requiring no painting and are impervious to insects.

How long do you plan to live in your present home?

1-5 years, up to 10 years, or longer than 10 years.  The longer you stay put the better the value of Premium Vinyl or Black Aluminum fence.  You see, after 10 years both Premium Vinyl and Black Aluminum fencing will retain 65% of original value while a natural wood fence may be at the end of useful life and worth practically nothing.

Let's not forget the budget!  

Premium Vinyl and Black Aluminum are both more expensive than Natural Wood Fencing. So you may be inclined to opt for natural wood fencing.  Don't get me wrong, natural wood fencing is a popular choice, as long as you know the long term total cost.

Maryville Knoxville Cedar Cypress water damageIS THIS YOUR FENCE?

Why do the Cedar and Cypress posts deteriorate after only 5 years. Simply that the cedar and cypress posts are not all heartwood. You see trees have sapwood on the outside of the tree (the living part) and heartwood which is stronger resistant wood.  When small cypress and cedar trees are used for fencing you end up with lots of sapwood in the posts. And sapwood rots away quickly. Termites also eat right thru the sapwood.
