6 Tips for Building a Split Rail Fence

November 25, 2017 ~ Posted By Jim Jenkins

Traditional wood split rail fence is both economical and fairly easy to install.

Traditional wood split rail fence is both economical and fairly easy to install.

Homeowners like split rail fences as they are among the simplest and most economical type of fence to build.  Drive around the rolling hills of the western Maryland area and you’re sure to see quite a few of them surrounding some lovely farms or gorgeous homes in suburban areas.  To many of us at Frederick Fence, there’s nothing more gorgeous than a split rail fence—they’re one of the most decorative and you can now build them using vinyl, which means the sections will never warp or fade!  A majority of the time you’ll see split rail fence covered with welded wire, which helps keep your children and pets in the yard and pesky critters like deer and rabbits off property.

Adding a split rail fence to your yard augments its appearance with a natural, rustic beauty. Split rail’s design is simple and it’s one of the easiest fences for a first time DIYer.  If you’re considering building a split rail fence soon, here are seven tips to help you build fence that will make your process easier:

 

  1. Consider installing a split rail style gate.  It’s a lot easier than installing a picket gate fence.  However, if you want to install a picket gate and are not sure how, call us for help!
  2. Make sure to set your posts on 10’6” centers.  Rails for a split rail fence are 11’ tip to tip.  The ends of rails are tapered or “paddled” so they can overlap when they are put in the post. If you set you posts 10’6” from the center of post to center of post, this will give you the perfect space to accommodate the rails.
  3. Rails should overlap 3” on either side. If you have less overlap, the rail are more likely to fall out over time, if your posts are too close, you can’t overlap too much and the rails won’t fit.
  4. Secure your rails with a nail on the ends and corners, and short sections.  These portions of fence are the most likely to move.  The ends are corners are called terminals and bear a lot of the load.  The short sections are custom built and need to be secured to avoid any rails falling out.
  5. Dry pack all post holes with about 25 lbs of concrete.  This will keep them in place even among the harshest of weather conditions.  If your posts are not properly set, your fence may become less sturdy over time and you may find yourself re-installing some sections if we have to endure a lot of harsh weather during winter and spring.
  6. Your gate opening should be 2” wider than the width of the actual gate panel in order to accommodate for the hardware

Wood Fence Installation: Assembled Versus Stick Built Fence

November 15, 2017 ~ Posted By Jim Jenkins

Are you a DIY devotee and wonder what type of wood fence to install?  There are two ways to install a wood fence—you can either install assembled panels or build your panels on site.  It all depends on what your needs are and the grade of your property.  Here’s some basic information to help you decide:

Stockade fence is the most popular type of assembled fence for DIYers.

Stockade fence is the most popular type of assembled fence for DIYers.

Assembled Fence

The only type of fence we install in panels is stockade fence, which is a six foot privacy fence.  If you’re looking to build a fence where you, your children and pets can enjoy the outdoors without being observed by everyone around you, this is a great fence that’s highly cost effective compared to vinyl.  Paddock fence installs also tend to go quickly and easy as most of your time is spent measuring the posts to hold up the sections.

One of the biggest downsides of using assembled fence is that you cannot accommodate a grade (a slant or hill on the fence perimeter) and you would need to step your wooden fencing panels. If you have a yard with any type of hills or slope, it’s best to stick build your fence.

Stick Built Fence

When a fence is stick built, the posts are set, runners are strung, and then the fence is boarded.  This way the fence can flow with the grade.  It is often sturdier as well because it typically is installed with joist clips for the 2x4s and uses the highest quality pressure treated or cedar boards.  Stick built fence requires significantly more time than assembled fence and a bit more skill as you constantly have to pay attention to the grade each step of the way.  You also need to measure twice as joist hangers requires an EXACT space between posts. If you measure incorrectly, your fence will turn out uneven and will not be as sturdy.

When working with stick built fence, remember your fence needs to flow with the grade of your ground in order to remain both even and sturdy.

When working with stick built fence, remember your fence needs to flow with the grade of your ground in order to remain both even and sturdy.

Just remember that wood fence is typically installed in 8’ wide sections; most pre-made wooden fencing panels are cut to this width.  When you install a fence and a portion of the fence that is less than 8’, you would need to cut the panel down to fit (which can sometimes be a pain).  If you’re building a fence and one of your sections requires you to install a 28’ stretch of fence, do not install three 8’ wide sections and then a small 3’ section, people will see the panels and think that the one small panel looks like a mistake on your part.  We recommend splitting the difference among several sections to make them all appear to be similar widths.  Trust us, it will look more appealing than the odd shorter section on one end of the fence.  When you install pre-made fence panels, you’ll just need to cut several sections to achieve that consistent look.

Our Most Frequently Asked DIY Questions and Answers!

October 15, 2017 ~ Posted By Jim Jenkins

At Frederick Fence, we love it when DIYers choose to take on the task of building their own fence.  In fact, sometimes the most rewarding thing you can do as a home owner is take personal pride when you step into your yard and see the outcome of your own handiwork!

Sometimes, however, a DIY enthusiast needs a little help.  Even though fence installation seems like a relatively easy process, we often get the same questions time and again from folks looking to build their own fence.  To help you with your next DIY fence project, we’ve assembled our most frequently asked questions and answers!  Hopefully seeing them here will help you should you decide to take on the great outdoors and build a fence for your home!

arch topHow wide is the gate?

With the exception of a split rail style gate, all of our gates are made to fit an opening.  The gate itself is not the size listed.  For example, an aluminum 4’ wide gate Is actually 46.5”, which is designed to fit in an opening of 48”.

Do you sleeve a vinyl post over a wood post?

Not only is it not necessary, it’s also not recommended.  Our vinyl posts are structural and do not need reinforcement.  The only time you might need them are for gate posts, which use metal inserts.  Putting a wood post inside a vinyl sleeve makes it more vulnerable to problems as the wood post is likely to bend, twist, or warp inside the vinyl sleeve.

Do I need to call utilities?

Yes, before you dig any hole for your DIY fence post installation! Failure to do so may result in some expensive repair damage that any county will force you to pay for, along with some hefty fines.  Don’t risk it at all!  Call before you dig!

vinyl pool fenceWhat do I need to do in order to make my fence meet pool code?

Typically, with the exception being Montgomery county, swimming pool fencing should be at least 48 inches above the side of the barrier, facing away from the swimming pool. Some states have pool fence regulation indicating the fence needs to be at least 60 inches.  Openings in the pool fence should be no larger than 4 inches wide.

There should be no more than 4 inches of space between the pool surface and the bottom of your fence.  When a fence is comprised of diagonal rails, the maximum opening between diagonal pieces should be no more than 1 ¾ inches.  Pool fence gates should be self-latching, and open away from the pool. The gate should also be self-closing.

Why don’t you sell cedar posts?

Cedar is not recommended for ground contact.  It is susceptible to rotting.  We use pressure treated pine posts that are treated for in ground contact.

Is your aluminum painted?

No.  We use aluminum fencing that comes with a Dupont certified powder coating that surpasses a salt spray test of 10000 hours.  We use an Alumiguard product, which we feel is the industry best!

How tall should my deer fence be?

On average, a deer fence is 8’ tall.  However, deer can jump really high, so don’t be surprised if a deer ends up on your property from time to time!

How do you keep rabbits out of your yard?

It is often suggested that you install a wire fence, and “trench” or bury about 4-6” of the bottom of the fence.

Buying a New Home and a New Fence in Frederick

September 24, 2017 ~ Posted By Jim Jenkins

Frederick_marylandIn terms of new housing opportunities, Frederick County remains one of the best places to live that’s just outside the Washington DC area.  With its revitalized downtown district, there are a plethora of bars, shops and fine dining establishments that make Frederick a destination for any special occasion.  Many visit Frederick to check out Top Chef contestant Brian Voltaggio’s Volt, and then end up hearing about the Tasting Room or the Wine Kitchen on the Creek, which are two of Frederick’s finest restaurants.  If you’ve never had a Tasting Room filet, you’re missing out on perfection!  If you’re into the outdoors, you can play tennis at Baker Park, hike the Catoctin Mountains or play golf at one of the area’s award-winning golf courses.

Work in the DC?  You’re in luck if you don’t relish the thought of driving down I-270 each day to the city as you can hope on the train to Union Station or take a shuttle bus to Shady Grove Station, and avoid the high parking fees and gasoline that a daily commute to DC often requires.  Work in the Chantilly or Reston area?  You can still avoid the I-270 traffic jams by taking Route 15 South each day and enjoy the view of the sprawling hills and green trees on each side of this two-lane road.

The great thing about most new communities in Frederick is that some offer a fence with the purchase of a home, depending upon which community you choose.  Having a fence included in the price of the house often makes it easier for home buyers as the fence is there when they take possession of the home, meaning they don’t have to worry about financing a fence afterward.  If you end up buying a home where you’re required to purchase your own fence, be thankful that many of these builders understand the value of curb appeal and allow just one type of fence—often maintenance free vinyl—to go on your property.

Looking for a new home and a new fence installation in Frederick? Here are a few of Frederick Fence’s favorite new communities where you can typically find our red and yellow signs within these neighborhoods.  Check them out and tell them Frederick Fence sent you!

Colored Vinyl Fence: The One Fence You’ll Need That Lasts as Long as Your Home

True, you could put up a standard wood fence and choose to stain or paint it any color you like. However, you’ll need to constantly apply a fresh coat of color every few years to maintain your fence’s unique look. Wood fences can also occasionally warp and bow or suffer damage from the elements—especially difficult winters and extremely hot summers. When this happens, your fence can fade or the colors can sometimes end up looking distorted in certain sections depending upon the type of beating the fence takes from the sun or harsh rains or inclement weather.

The good news about vinyl fence is that it’s made to withstand the elements and it never fades. Vinyl fence is also maintenance free—once you install it, typically the only thing you’ll need to do is spray it with your garden hose to clean off any debris! That means your fence may last longer than the colors on your house, depending upon your building materials!

Want Color But Something More Traditional When It Comes to Vinyl?

Should you want a vinyl fence and want something that looks more natural, but with a bit of color, you can also choose to build your fence using Grand Illusions Vinyl Woodbond™ wood grain fence. You can chose a dark vinyl like Mahagony or Cherry or go as light as rosewood or Eastern White Cedar. These are some of the most gorgeous vinyl materials on the market and are completely lifelike!

Debunking the Myth…You CAN Install a Fence in Winter!

February 10, 2017 ~ Posted By Jim Jenkins

Even though Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow—meaning we’re all in for six more weeks of winter—now’s one of the best times of year to install a fence!

What? Seriously? You’re thinking “But it’s winter! Isn’t it too cold to install a fence?”

Just because we’re roughly six weeks away from the official start of Spring (March 20, 2017 to be exact), doesn’t mean you have to wait until the weather gets warm to put a fence around your property. Yes, the outdoor home improvement industry does slow down during colder months, but that’s typically because most homeowners hibernate indoors during winter. Unless the ground is truly frozen solid several inches below the surface, installing fences in winter is still possible. That’s right, even if we get a few inches of snow—as long as it’s not frozen solid and caked with ice, you can still install fences in winter.

Advantages to Buying a Fence NOW!

Here we are in early February and look at the weather conditions for the DC, Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Southern Pennsylvania areas. We’ve had a few days where the unseasonal highs were in the 70-degree range and the lows have barely dipped below the low 30’s. True, we may still see a bit of snow and who knows how low the temperatures will go, but the environmental conditions outside lend themselves nicely for digging three-foot post holes that serve as the guide for fencing installation.

Buying in February and March also means that your fence project ends just as many your neighbors begin shopping for fence. That means longer waits to get permits approved, longer delivery times for getting the fence installed and the less time you have to truly enjoy your outdoor creation once the warm temperatures settle in and you start wishing it would snow or turn cold again.

If your idea of the perfect fence for your home is a custom design—one that includes ornate lattice work, a vibrant vinyl color or a unique logo welded to your driveway gate—now’s the best time to get started on your fence project. Custom work always takes longer because manufacturers keep a low inventory on special materials. If you want an iron gate that has trees, geometric patterns or your family name welded in a decorative font, these orders take time. During the summer months, people are surprised when they hear highly ornate fence materials can take as long as six to eight weeks to produce. That’s because there’s a high demand for custom work in summer and there are—realistically—only so many local vendors who specialize in custom fabrication of fence materials.

If you know you want something new and different that creates maximum curb appeal and sets you apart from your neighbors, get that fence project started now while there’s a lull!

Waiting until mid-June to get started on a fence project means more waiting to get what you want. Calling this time of year means your fence project can go in the ground even faster than getting your tax refund (You do know that April 15th is not that far away either!)!

Even if You’re Just Thinking About it….

If you’ve planned ahead for your home improvement needs and a fence is on your list, give us a call now or click on our online chat feature and see how easy it is to get your fence project underway. We think you’ll be surprised at how short the timeline will be.

You can also use our free online estimate tool, which gives you a realistic idea of how much your fence will cost! And, of course, any of our fence experts are more than willing to come to your home and walk you through a variety of options should you want some advice on the best fence to meet both your needs and your budget.

And Just in Case the Big Chill Happens…

If the weather does dip and things turn bitter cold and we’ve only just begun work on your fence, don’t worry! As soon as the ground thaws, we’re right back out there to get your job done in time for spring!

Choosing the right fencing contractor is a vitally important step in getting the perfect fence for you.

You have many options when it comes to choosing a fencing contractor. The Web is littered with contractor information, and many of them sound like excellent deals. But, as with everything in life, the principle of caveat emptor applies. The fencing contractor who says they can install your fence for significantly less than everybody else may be cutting corners somewhere along the line. Conversely, the fencing contractor who promises perfection but charges premium pricing may just be gauging you.
