All of the fencing that we stock here in Denver is cedar lumber. The three key benefits of using cedar lumber here for wood fencing are aesthetic appeal, durability and value. The natural beauty of a wood fence remains desirable in residential, commercial and agricultural settings. Wood privacy fences are the choice for anyone looking to enhance their yard, secure their home, keep the dogs in, keep the kids safe, and create a private outdoor addition to their living space.

Step 1: Determine Spacing for Fence Posts
Typically, fence posts are spaced about eight feet apart. The corner posts are always set first. Sets stakes at your corner post measurements and then stretch a line from one stake to the other to serve as your guide. Mark the exact position where you’d like each post hole dug.
Step 2: Prepare Holes and Posts
When setting the fence posts, make sure about 2 feet of each post is buried in the ground. This helps the posts endure heavy weight and high winds.
Step 3: Set Posts
Place two to three shovel scoops of gravel at the bottom of each post hole before placing the post into position. Use a level to make sure the post is plumb. After the posts are properly aligned, brace each post with stakes.
Step 4: Attach Rails to Fence Posts
Install a bottom and top rail to attach to the fence posts. A “butt joint” is a basic wood joint where the ends of the rails are aligned, placed together and then secured. Be sure to measure that the top and bottom rails are perfectly aligned.

Cedar vs. Pressure-Treated
Which type of material will work best for your privacy fence in the harsh Colorado climates? Maybe what you really need is an exotic material for your horizontal privacy fence. No matter which type of project- whether it’s to keep the dog in or to impress the neighbors- we have what you need.
Although pressure treated is seen as a viable privacy fence for most locations in the US, this is not true for Colorado. The climate here tends to dry out pressure treated boards. They begin to warp, crack and twist after only 2 years. Our number one seller is cedar picket fence with cedar rails and post. Cedar will last longer than pine and, in our opinion, looks better for the cost. We offer the largest selection of cedar fencing in the state. This allows us to meet any budget or quality need.

A Post and Dowel fence, also known as Western Rail Fencing, is known for its round posts and round rails. Manufactured from pine logs, Post and Dowel fencing has been chemically pressure treated to help prevent rot and decay. This treating process is what accounts for the greenish hue that Post and Dowel fences are known for.
Split rail fences are made by splitting logs into crude rails. Their organic appearance has made this style of fencing popular in everything from small decorative applications in the front yard of a city lot to large ranch boundaries. The simple design of Split Rail allows it to be installed with very few tools.
Vinyl/composite fence is on the rise in popularity and there are a number of reasons for that! Vinyl/composite fencing has very low maintenance, easy to clean and easy to install. One more added benefit is that you never have to worry about termites either. Our fencing is more environmentally friendly as well, since it will last much longer than the competition, which saves you even more money in the long run.
A typical Ranch Rail, two, three or four rail system, will typically be made with 4×4, 4×6 or 4×8 cedar posts and nominal 2×6 or 2×8 cedar boards for its rails. We keep all of these in stock and can also supply weld wire that can be attached to your fence to keep small pets or animals in and predators out.
