Ideas & Inspiration from San Francisco Fence Contractors

San Francisco Wood Fences

There are many reasons to install a fence. They are great for increasing curb appeal, keeping pets and small children within eye sight, and marking property lines, as well. Fences can also provide privacy from nosy neighbors or passersby, as well as protect your property from the trampling feet of neighborhood kids or unwanted visitors. While there are many fencing options out there, in San Francisco, wood fences are one of the most classic and practical choices around. Those looking to install a wood fence in San Francisco will have a lot to choose from and several important decisions to make. To get the best fence for your situation, there are a few factors to consider.

One of the greatest things about wood as a fencing material is the fact that it is so incredibly versatile. While other fencing materials might come in several styles and colors, because wood is so easy to work with and is such an old material, your options will far outnumber those of other fencing materials. Not only will you be able to choose the species and grade of wood you use for your fence, but you'll have a wide array of options when it comes to form, color, and weather treatment. Basically, just about any look or any function you want for your fence can be constructed from wood.

In addition to offering homeowners more options than other fencing materials, San Francisco wood fences also have some other great qualities that make them an excellent choice in many situations. Wood fencing is more affordable than many metal and vinyl fences both in material costs and in installation price. Though some materials like wrought iron can be absolutely beautiful when well maintained, aluminum and vinyl fencing can imitate, but never duplicate the natural beauty of real wood. Additionally, in an environmentally conscious city like San Francisco, wood fencing is desirable because it is completely biodegradable.

While wood's workability and classic good looks have kept homeowners happy for centuries, it does require more maintenance than other materials. However, when vinyl fencing fades, there is really nothing you can do about it; wood fences, on the other hand, are made to be repainted. Though wood doesn't rust like some metal fencing, it does need to be sealed and resealed periodically to protect it from the moist Bay Area air which can cause rot and mold.

If you're serious about installing a new wood fence, San Francisco residents might opt for specific wood species that are naturally resistant to the environmental conditions found in and around the city. Cedar fences, for example, contain a natural oil that makes them resistant to moisture, as well as make them an undesirable home or food source for insects. Doing some research on different wood species can be beneficial, as each will have qualities that will work well in certain situations.

Though handy homeowners sometimes choose to install their own wood fences, San Francisco's sloped properties' cramped spaces might make this job a little more difficult than it would be in other areas of the country. Installing a privacy fence in the Bay Area presents a particular problem for do-it-yourselfers, as property grades can make the job a bit tricky. Nationwide, homeowners generally pay an average of about $2,900 to hire a professional to install a wood fence. San Francisco costs (of course) might be a little higher per foot of fencing than prices in other parts of the country.
