Wood fences are the most common type of fence we build today, because of wood's availability, its aesthetic versatility, and its relative low cost of building and maintenance. The most common species used for stick-built wood fences include pine, spruce, fir, cypress, red cedar, white cedar, and redwood. Posts, which are partially buried underground, are the vertical structural members that support the rails and pickets of a fence. Stick building a wood fence offers the opportunity to be creative; however, it should be noted that several traditional styles of fence are well received by neighbors. Picket fences will generally have two rails, with evenly spaced pickets on one side of the fence. Shadowbox fences will have three rails, with evenly spaced pickets on two sides of the fence. Board on board fences (see image above) have two or three rails, depending on the height of the fence. Prior to building a fence on your property, you should have an accurate understanding of where your property lines are located. After you have planned the fence on paper, you can locate the corners and the ends of the fence on your property. Drive a nail into the center of the wood stake and run a line of string tautly from stake to stake.
Starting at a corner or at the end of the fence, hold the bottom of the picket at the height of the guide string, using a level to ensure that the picket is plumb, and attach the picket to the rails by using two appropriate fasteners at each rail.
Move to the next picket, using the block of wood to separate it from the adjacent picket if applicable. Once the pickets have been attached, your fence has been built, but it is not quite complete.

And City Fence is able to offer you a wide range of highly attractive yet cost-effective wood fences, that will fit your needs and budget, and are guaranteed to last for decades in our WNY climate. The degree of privacy offered by your fence will obviously be affected by the height of the fence. Custom sizes are also available, and your fence is custom fabricated at your home to compliment your particular terrain configurations. However, if you want to make sure that your fence doesn't end up crooked, or blow over in the first wind storm, there is more to erecting a fence than you might realize. This is by far the most popular wood type for constructing fence panels that will endure for decades in our demanding WNY climate.
However, the specific design of the fence panels is also a very important factor, since panels may be constructed so that the individual wooden fence boards have gaps between them, to increase visibility, or no gaps* between them to increase privacy. If the water soaks in and darkens the wood, then it’s time to get on that deck maintenance before any serious damage is done.
