Denver Fence Company: From Basic To Custom Privacy Fences, We’ve Got You Covered

Privacy fencing is one of the most common styles of fencing used by homeowners and contractors for several different reasons. When privacy fencing is installed it’s mainly for security, privacy, noise reduction, curb appeal and to add protection for your family. Regardless of the reason for installing a privacy fence, this style of fencing will add value to your home and add curb appeal.

In order for a fence to be defined as a privacy fence, it must cover four categories: security, function, durability and design. For example, a chain link fence doesn’t offer much privacy or design, therefore it doesn’t qualify as a privacy fence.


One of the biggest reasons why privacy fencing is a popular style of fencing is because of how affordable it is for homeowners and contractors. A privacy fence can range in price depending on the material you are using for the pickets and posts, the overall size of the project, and the style you are going for.

Calculating the Cost

  1. You will want to calculate the total linear feet that your fence is going to be. You just need to know the lengths of three sides of your yard and calculate it from there. For example, if two sides of your yard are 25 ft, you add those together to get 50 and times that by 2. You will need 100 linear feet.
  2. Figure out how many posts you will need for the entirety of your fence. Normally you will have a post every 8 feet, so take your linear feet and divide it by 8.
  3. Next is finding out how many 2x4s you might need. You can do 2-3 2x4s depending on how much support you are looking for. For optimal results, we recommend 3. For each 8 ft section you will need 2 or 3.
  4. Finally, you’ll need to determine the number of pickets you will need. We carry 1×4 and 1×6 which will turn out to be 1×3.5 or 1×5.5 after milling.

Once you know all your calculations, you will want to set a budget that you want to stay within. Once you have this information, you can bring it to one of our fence specialists and they can recommend the right materials for the job and get the ball rolling.

** We always recommend buying a few extra pieces of material so that you can have back up in case there are any mistakes in measurement or damage to boards once they are purchased**

The Different Styles of Privacy Fencing

Decorative Privacy Fence:
We can understand that sometimes you might want to enhance the design of your privacy fence instead of leaving it the natural cedar look. There are many different ways you can add some décor to your fence with simple additions like post caps, stain, paint or even adding accent boards to act and look as trim. Our fencing specialists are great at not only helping you with the buying process, but helping you design your fence as well.

Standard Privacy Fence:
The standard privacy fence is mainly where you leave the pickets natural with the average cut. This is the most common style of privacy fencing you will see in neighborhoods with the occasional decorative privacy fence.

Horizontal Privacy Fence:
This style of privacy fence is the same as the standard design, just with the pickets facing a horizontal direction instead of a vertical position like most privacy fences. This is an easy way to give your fence some character and a more decorative look without adding any post caps or trim boards.
