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 most. Incense-cedar is resistant to rot, decay and other issues it may be exposed to, especially with the ever-changing weather here in Colorado. Because incense cedar is so smooth, it can easily be stained and looks incredible if left natural. We usually keep a stock of incense cedar on the ground and can accomomdate most sizes of orders.

Western Red Cedar

If you want to impress your neighbors with that next project, then choose one of the world’s most beautiful woods – Western Red Cedar. Western Red Cedar is resistant to rot and decay and is a great choice to use with stains, sealers, and paints. The wood is easy to work with because it’s so light and durable.

Using Western Red Cedar for your next fence project will be a great addition to any home!

Treated Wood

We tend to not recommend treated wood to our clients as an alternative to incense cedar, especially in Colorado. Treated wood is much harder to care for and depending on the environment where you live, issues can arise such as cracking, warping, and splitting. However, treated wood is popular in certain areas of the US and we are happy to source that product for our clients that desire it for their fence projects.

At the end of the day, only you determine which type of fencing is best for your fence project. 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 mills across the US, which means we can offer higher quality products at a better price than our competitors. You’ll never go back to purchasing your fence products from the big box stores again!

#1 – High-Quality Products

All our products are of higher quality than our competitors for one simple reason; we buy mill direct. We get to choose the quality of the product we get. If we want a certain quality of fencing, we can tell our mill that and get that product, no issue. Bigger stores don’t get to choose the level of quality their products are, which means you don’t know if you’re getting a lower quality product or a higher one. This allows for more consistency across board.

#2 – Affordable Pricing

Most big box stores find themselves having to mark up their products in order to remain profitable. Here at Cedar Fence Direct, we have cut out the middleman which brings our cost down and allows us to sell our materials at a lower price to our customers. 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 you need specific materials. Our relationship with the mill allows us to request custom orders with quick turnaround times. We can get our hands on products that most suppliers are unable to. Not sure if we’re able to source a specific material? Just ask!

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 ship split load trucks with a combination of materials, whether it be pickets, posts, or rails. Most suppliers only offer truckloads of one type of material, whereas we are able to customize it to your specific needs.

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 out.

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, typically ranging anywhere from 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 deliveries; we will not drop materials off at any given location without someone on site.

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

Cedar Fence Direct

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.

Cedar Fence Direct

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 defining 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.
