Wood Fence Replacement

After all these years, we still build fences piece by piece on site so we can customize the fence to your home and yard. Our trucks will show up with all the new redwood fence lumber to repair or replace your fence on their truck.

We will get right to work removing the old fence and laying out your new fence. We set every post in concrete so your vertical posts won’t shift or lean. We nail up every board one by one using ring shank hot-dipped galvanized nails that minimize rust and hold the boards tight. 

This allows for a much cleaner and more professional fence installation than people who try to use wood fencing panels. The finished product will be a Superior fence product that protects your property lines.

Different Wood Fence Styles

​We install a variety of styles of wood fencing. While the most common and affordable is a Dog Ear fence style, many of our Sacramento area customers select gorgeous Cap and Trim fence for its clean contemporary lines.

At the same time, we also have many customers upgrade to the more private Board on Board option for that little bit of extra concealment of overlapping pickets to prevent any gaps when the wood dries. Whether you select the most affordable Dog Ear style or one of the upgrades, rest assured you are getting a fantastic new fence.

Where Does the Wood Come From

The most common types of repairs we do are:

  • Fence post leaning, broken, or rotten

  • Rails rotten, splintered or damaged

  • Pickets missing or falling off

  • Gate dragging or not closing

Is it hard to put up a wooden fence?

In most cases, putting up wooden fencing by yourself presents a set of challenges. You have to draw up a good plan, acquire proper materials, perform all the measurements, and do all the manual labor, which can be difficult for property owners to do by themselves.

There are additional aspects to take under consideration as well, like the terrain you're working on, fence height, the materials and techniques that will be most suitable for your needs, and the effect you wish to achieve - all of which can be easier to determine and implement with the support of a good wood fence contractor.

That is why most clients benefit from working with a team of experts, even when the costs of the installation or repair are higher.

What type of wood fence lasts the longest?

The most durable wood fences are Redwood fences. Redwood not only offers a timeless and natural look but is resistant to rot and insects. It's a very stable wood with little seasonal movement, which is perfect for outdoor constructions like wood fencing.

If properly maintained, Redwood wooden fences can last even 20 years and more. White Cedar and Red Cedar are other popular wood types for wooden fencing.

What is the cheapest fence to build?

For a privacy fence, usually wood is the cheapest option in the Sacramento, CA area. Another option is Vinyl/PVC fencing. Vinyl can be used to replace wood in picket fences and stakes, as well as wood fencing panels. Another cheap alternative is wire and plain wooden or metal posts as fencing.

These solutions, however, don't provide you with many benefits that wooden fences do. A wire fence is not very aesthetically pleasing, and it won't protect you from your nosy neighbors. It can make sense if you're looking for fencing for livestock, though.

Vinyl will not look natural, so this wouldn't be the best pick if that is the effect you care about.

And although vinyl or aluminum fences are known for their durability, once destroyed, they are harder to repair than wood fences, which is something to consider when choosing fencing that will serve you for years to come.

What style of wood fencing is best?

Every solution has its advantages and disadvantages, so the final choice will depend on your priorities, style preferences, and budget.

One of the most popular wood fence styles is the Dog Ear fence style, which provides lots of privacy in your backyard while still being very affordable. With characteristic angled cuts on both sides at the top of each plank, it's a safe and reliable choice for many house styles.

If you're looking for even more privacy, the Board-on-Board style is another great option. This style is known for the sturdy construction of overlapping every other picket to the opposite side of the rails. This provides you with maximum privacy in your garden. Not to mention, it's one of the more modern-looking wood fence styles offered on the market.

Some prefer the simple yet classic picket fence style that offers lots of sunlight for your garden plants but less privacy for you, while others will be content with the Cap and Trim fence, which offers more of a decorative effect than the standard wood fences.

How often should a wood fence be replaced?

A fence made from durable material and put up with proper techniques in place can last even 20 years or more. Usually, the first repairs regard posts, whereas panels have a higher chance of staying in good condition for longer because they don't touch the ground.

Either way, this is an investment for decades. It's worth choosing the right team of professionals and the best wood to protect your home and garden from trespassing, wind, and glances from your neighbors for years ahead of you.
