Which Style of Fencing is Right for Me?

Incense Cedar

Incense-cedar is the most common type of fencing that we sell and it’s also the type of fencing that we recommend. Incense-cedar is resistant to rot, decay and other damages it may be exposed to in weather especially here in Colorado. Because incense cedar is so smooth it can easily be stained and looks incredible if left natural. We always keep a stock of incense cedar on grounds and can always order more if needed.

Western Red Cedar

A lot of times customers will think that western red cedar is held at a higher rank compared to incense cedar. This, however, is not true because western red cedar is more expensive and tends to require more care. Western red cedar is also more tricky to get our hands on as we have to order it on an order by order basis. We don’t stock this type of cedar on grounds.

Treated Wood

We tend to not recommend treated wood to our clients as an alternative to incense cedar. Treated wood is much harder to care for and depending on the environment where you live issues can arise such as cracking, warping, splitting, etc. Treated wood is also on the pricier side and wants to recommend styles of fencing that are in the best interest of our customer and their budget.

At the end of the day, you are the only person who will be able to determine which type of fencing is best for you and your family or clients. Before you move forward with a certain style of fencing take your time to conduct all the research possible and to ask all the questions. We recommend working with one of our fencing specialists who can help guide you in the right direction and give you all the information you may possibly need.

We Buy MILL DIRECT

We buy all our products directly from The Mill which means we can offer you products that are under better quality control compared to our competitors along with other benefits that will make your shopping experience better.

#1 – High-Quality Products

All our products are of higher quality than our competitors for one simple reason; we communicate with our mills. We have a relationship built with every mill where we can communicate with them the products we want and don’t want. We get to pick and choose each individual product that comes through our doors which allows us to offer only the best in quality. Another great benefit to this relationship is that each board of material has little to no imperfections and is appearance grade.

#2 – Affordable Pricing

Most big box stores find themselves having to mark up their products in order to come out on top once they purchase their products from the middleman between the mill and them. Here at Cedar Fence Direct, we don’t have to mark up our products to make it out on top because we cut out the middleman cost and save ourselves money so we can help you save money too! Our goal is to offer a product that is high quality while still being affordable to the average homeowner or contractor.

#3 – Custom Orders

As a contractor, you might come across a job that is particularly unique or specific to the client and need specific materials. You don’t want to find a new supplier when your comfortable with us and we respect that which is why we make sure to maintain our relationship with our mill. This way we can contact our mill, give them the specific details on your job and the materials needed to see if we can get the materials custom ordered for you. One of our main goals aside from others is to work with our customers new and existing. We want to make the process as smooth sailing as possible.

We Offer SPLIT Truck Loads

One of the biggest benefits you have when it comes to shopping through Cedar Fence Direct is that we offer the ability to split trucks between materials whether it be pickets, posts, or rails. Most suppliers only offer truckloads of one type of material whereas we want to add to the convenience and split loads up if needed.

Things to Remember with Our Truck Load Orders

We don’t offer any returns or exchanges for materials once they are delivered. If you find that materials were damaged during shipping, we will work out with our third-party shipping company to get the details sorted.

All our truckloads are based on weight. Keep in mind that if the material is shipped during fall or winter, they may be wet which can alter the number of units per truck. The average units are 18-19 with the range being 15-22 units.

There MUST be a forklift on site for unloading. If there is no forklift available for use, we will not deliver. We also only do live delivery’s; we will not drop materials off at any given location.
50% of payment is due as a down payment with the remaining 50% due at the time the truck leaves the mill. Materials will not be en route until the remaining balance is paid in full.

Additional Lumber Options

Ranch Rail Fence

Ranch Rail Fence

Ranch Rail or a board fence is very popular among the state of Colorado. It is commonly used in neighborhoods, country mountain settings, and large farms. It is a popular option among ranchers and farmers to keep their livestock and pets within the border of their land. Typically ranch rail is 2,3, or 4 rail system and will typically be made with 4×4, 4×6, 4×8 cedar posts and with 2×6, and 2×8 cedar boards for the rails. We also recommend using weld wire that can be attached to the rails to help your fence keep smaller animals in and keep predators from getting in.

Horizontal Privacy Fence

Horizontal Privacy Fence

A privacy fence is the perfect addition to any outdoor space especially when privacy and security are a concern. Traditional privacy fences appear with vertical pickets aligned across the perimeter of the fence. This is the most common style of fencing used which means your fence may look the same as a few of your neighbors. If you are looking for a way to design your fence so it stands out and looks unique from other privacy fences but still reap the benefits, horizontal fencing is a great option. This style is the same material and built the same as a traditional privacy fence. It is just flipped horizontally. Consider this style of fencing when looking at your options. This style is perfect for anyone wanting the same benefits as privacy fencing but with a little design twist.

Are You a Contractor, Farmer, or a Rancher?

If you are a contractor, a farmer or a rancher you’re probably reading this page because you need a fence. Whether you are just starting out or are looking to make an improvement to your existing fence it’s hard to know which option is the best for you and your specific needs. Here are a few easy questions to ask yourself before you officially decide which type of fencing is best for you.

Rancher or Farmer FAQ’s

Question #1: How large is the space that I need to line with a fence? What is my budget?

This question is important because it will determine the type of fence you should go with based on the size and your budget. Certain types of fencing like a split rail, for example, are better for larger projects because it’s more affordable.

Question #2: Do I have large or small animals to keep in? Do I have both?

Depending on the answer to this question you can eliminate certain types of fencing if you are looking for a solution that keeps smaller animals in while also protecting your larger ones too. However, you don’t necessarily have to eliminate styles of fencing, you can modify. For example, if you prefer to use ranch rail, for instance, you can add weld wire to it to close off the large openings.

Question #3: Is there a certain style I am looking for?

This is the defying question that will determine the choices you narrow down too. If your looking for rustic – split rail may be the option, if you’re wanting cleaner and simpler – ranch rail may be the one.

The Best Fencing Styles: As a farmer or a rancher you are probably seeking a fencing option that is affordable, easy to take care of, doesn’t require a lot of upkeep and is easy to install. Now, most fencing options would fit these criteria however there are a few styles that would be the best fit. Split rail is a fence style that is used by farmers and ranchers often along with ranch rail. Both styles of fencing are easy to install and care for and are affordable which helps you budget for the large space you have to line with fencing.

Contractor FAQ’s

Question #1: Is this job for a homeowner in a neighborhood or is it a commercial job?

Depending on whether the job is for a homeowner or a commercial setting the style of fencing really matters based on the location. For instance, if you are in a suburb a privacy fence would probably be more suitable for the location, so the client has more privacy and security in their neighborhood. If you are contracted by a farmer or rancher, they might request split rail, ranch rail or post and dowel for easy care, install and affordable pricing.

Question #2: What is the client’s budget?

This is a big deciding factor in the style of fencing you might want to offer a client. Before you give any insight into the style of fencing to choose from you must know what the budget of a client is. This way you can easily give them options and they aren’t expecting something that is over their budget.

Question #3: What is the client looking for?

Does your client want security, privacy, style, curb appeal, protection for their kids and animals and so on? These can be deciding factors in the style of fencing a homeowner could choose, of course, you can alter designs slightly to fit certain needs but it’s a good thing to know beforehand.
