Choosing your Type of Wood

Different types of woods have very different benefits and price points. If you are considering a wood fence, choosing the right type of wood is a very important decision!

Pressure-Treated Pine Wood Fences

The pine pickets are pressure-treated to protect against rot and decay using EPA-approved, safe for environment and pets, MCA (Micronized Copper Azole). Southern yellow pines typically have very wide growth rings and thick dense latewood, compared to cedar. This increases its likelihood to warp and twist from the rapid expansion and contraction caused but the inconsistant rate these different parts of the wood absorb, thus causing it to release water and dry out. These characteristics make these type of boards the least appealing to the eye as it starts to weather.

Average Fence Life: 12 - 15 Years*

Fence Warranty: Lifetime Workmanship Warranty
An additional cost to consider upfront is the application of the first staining within two weeks of install and then again every few years, depending on the product. When comparing this option to a lifetime warranty, no-maintenance option like vinyl fence, we find the investment breakeven point is about 5 to 7 years. After which time, the wood fence will cost you more money.

*Average fence life can vary, depending on environmental conditions and protection applied after installation.

Cedar - Wood Fences

Cedar has natural tannins, making it resistant to insects, rot, and decay. It is also an all-natural product, making it even safer for family and pets. Cedar also has a more consistent grain structure, allowing it to absorb and release water more uniformly, thus less susceptible to warping and twisting. It's easy to paint and stain, or can be left to age naturally and develop a beautiful patina.

Stockade Wood Fence

Wood Shadowbox Fence Design

Wood fences can stand-up to high winds, harsh weather, dogs, kids, and almost anything you can throw at them - which is why they are such a popular choice in Pace and the surrounding area. A properly installed wood fence can take a tremendous beating before breaking or failing. With our workmanship warranty, you can be sure that your wood fence is ready for just about anything! Be sure to ask about our Postmaster metal posts!

We meet or exceed all industry guidelines for the installation of wood fences. The key to the strength of any fence is in the posts. A properly set post will anchor the fence tightly and enable it to withstand a tremendous amount of pressure from high winds, kids, or anything else you "throw" at it. That is why we set our posts 30 inches deep using 80 lbs. of cement for each post! This is considerably more than many of our local competitors which is why we are one of the top wood fence contractors in the Pace, Florida area. We offer carry Postmaster metal posts which are backed by a Lifetime Warranty! You won’t have to worry about your fence posts rotting in the future.

Wood fencing is totally appropriate for providing privacy around the perimeter of any Pace, Florida property - whether it has a pool or not. High Steele Fencing works directly with the county's code enforcement department to ensure your fence meets all Florida requirements!

Many homeowners will also protect the immediate area around the pool itself. In this case, we typically recommend either aluminum fencing or vinyl fencing - both of which will not be damaged by the moisture associated with a pool area. The moisture of pool areas can create a challenge for wood fences that are too close to the pool itself. Constantly wet wood is not the best situation for a long-lasting fence.

Most towns across Florida do not require permits for any type of fence 6ft tall or less in the back yard or 4ft or less in the front yard. As fencing experts in Pace and the surrounding area, we will consult with you about your specific situation and guide you through the permitting process if you do happen to need a permit for your fence.

As with any company, we do have slight variations in how busy we are at any given time. Generally speaking, we can usually begin a new wood fence in Pace within about 2 weeks, however we will let you know for sure when we talk to you about the specifics of your fencing project.

Once we begin, most wood fences are completed the same day. We do everything we can to limit the amount of inconvenience you may experience during the project, so if we cannot finish the project that very same day, we will be back the following days to finish it up. If you happen to have a very large property, we will work out a schedule with you that minimizes your inconvenience.

We recommend you seal your fence in order to prolong the beauty of your investment. This can be done either by purchasing a penetrating sealant of your choosing and applying per the directions or by hiring a contractor.

It is also important to keep your fence clean and free of debris along the bottom of the fence. Prolonged exposure to piles of wet leaves or debris can greatly increase the likelihood of rot and/or insect damage.

Our posts are set with Sakrete brand concrete.

Unless your Florida fence is being installed with a driven metal post, all of our options are set in a minimum 80 lbs of concrete. When installed, High Steele Fencing uses the "dry pack" method. This means the concrete is actually packed in around your post to create a compaction to hold the post in. This way is actually more labor intensive, but creates a stronger bond.

We use a ring shank galvanized nail. This nail is designed to grip the wood and allow for only minimal bleed. Because a nail is metal and bleeding is inevitable even with a galvanized coating, we counter sinks the nail into the picket in an attempt to direct the bleed into the center of the picket versus down the face. Using screws will drive the cost of the fence up because there are more man hours required during installation.

Screws are also more likely to bleed than nails even if they are galvanized. The reason there is more bleed is because as the screw is screwed into the wood, the galvanized coating is stripped off of the screw either from the wood itself and/or the drill tip.

We offer a Lifetime Workmanship Warranty on all wood fences we install in the Panhandle area. This warranty covers the wood fence and the gate labor. As pine is subject to warping, cracking and splitting, we do not cover the pine material itself.

Absolutely. A cedar fence on Postmaster post is the number one way to prolong your wood fence. Many people prefer the look of cedar and it is a stronger, more dense wood making it much more durable and resistant to rotting, splitting and insect damage.

Pine is a more economical solution. As a softer wood, it is more susceptible to penetration of water - meaning it can rot and split more easily and some types of bugs can, over time, cause damage. However, a properly maintained pressure-treated pine wood fence can last for many years for Pace, FL homeowners and businesses. We are here for either style you choose!

Postmaster posts are backed by a lifetime warranty and are built to handle tropical storm winds. These are your best options for a wood fence in the Pace, Florida region.
