Everything You Need to Know Before You Buy a Fence

Would you like to have the best warranty offered?

Buy from us; we are proud of what we do, and we give a FIVE-YEAR warranty to prove it.

If you want a fence that will last – Buy From Us.
The secret to our fences is our better structural components and designs.
  • You get 64% more strength if you choose our fences with a third rail and a baseboard.

  • To give you initial straightness and to minimize warping, we use only #2 posts and #1 rails.

  • For longer life, we use ACQ pressure-treated posts, rails, and baseboards.

  • You get the closest economical spacing on posts which are 7 ft. apart.

  • Because you want a strong fence, we set all posts in concrete at the proper depth for their height.

  • To give maximum life and durability, the framework is tightly crafted and then nailed with galvanized nails.

If you think craftsmanship and appearance matter – Buy From Us.
We take pride in how our fences look and get glowing compliments on them.
  • Our proven designs are very attractive, especially with baseboards or caps.

  • You get a better-crafted fence because our crews have years of experience and know-how.

  • Because they never rust and stain the face of the picket, we use stainless steel nails in the pickets.

  • To ensure only the best pickets are installed, we bring extra pickets to the job so we can field inspect them as we build.

  • For the best appearance and to hold better, all nails are driven flush with the face of the picket.

  • An attractive architectural transition from picket to baseboard on larger baseboards is obtained by our beveled edge treatment.

Would you like to have a gate that works properly? – Buy From Us.
Gates are the only part of the fence that moves, and we give them extra attention for long-term ease of operation and appearance.
  • For lightweight strength and superior support, our “Tough-Gate™” is a welded steel galvanized frame that will not sag or warp like a wood cross-braced gate.

  • For long-term straightness and the best gate alignment and support, the post strength is critical. Our gate posts are specially selected and then reinforced with angle iron for superior strength.

  • Because they will not rust and stain the face of the pickets like bolts, we use stainless steel screws to attach the pickets to the gate frame.

  • For the most secure, easily operated attachment, our hinges are bolted through the post with galvanized bolts, not just lag screws to the front of the posts.
