By far the most popular fencing material in this area, wood provides an all-around good value. There are several species of wood used in fencing; however, the two main types in Oklahoma are white wood and western red cedar. Redwood, white cedar and incense cedar are also available.
Various combinations of northern spruce, pine and fir are referred to as white woods. In Oklahoma, southern yellow pine is the predominant white wood. These woods have little resistance to rot and insects and when properly installed should last 5 to 10 years. White wood is a low cost yet attractive material that can be stained or sealed for longer life. Untreated it will darken within 2 years.
Western red cedar comes from the NW United States or Canada. It is mildly resistant to water and insects and should last 15 plus years. Staining and oil treatment can extend life beyond the average. Although higher in cost western red cedar provides a batter value over the life of the fence.
Designs from the basic “stockade” to highly customized designs involving expert carpentry are highly possible using wood. The examples shown here are some of the more popular looks. Contact us! Click here!
Why Vinyl Fencing?
Vinyl fence (also called PVC fence) has become greatly known for its wide variety of styles, easy to clean material and low maintenance upkeep. Different from wood and chain link, vinyl profiles can be cut and shaped to just about any size that you may desire. This allows for you to select a style and design that will be the perfect match for your home and property. Vinyl fences come in many different colors which are digitally integrated into the vinyl extrusion process which means the time and money that you would have spent painting/staining your wood fence will instead be spent on vacation, a weekend getaway or that special something that you have been waiting to buy!
The lifetime of vinyl fencing will far exceed your expectations and concerns. You will have your vinyl fence installed only ONE time and enjoy its beauty for a lifetime! Your vinyl fence will not rot like wood. Contact us! Click here!
Chain Link Fence - Wear and Tear
Light chain link fence will not be able to undertake extreme wear and tear. The chain link fence’s framework may bend or the fabric may be damaged. Every day wear and tear including people sitting or climbing on the chain link fence may cause damage. In addition, heavy wind can also cause the chain link fence harm. While the structure of the chain link fence can be damaged, poor coating can cause the chain link fence to rust. Light chain link fence is manufactured for light, temporary needs. An unknowing consumer may buy a light chain link fence because of its lower cost or because they do not understand that there is a difference between chain link fences.
Chain Link Fence - Quality
The Chain Link Fence Manufacturers Institute has performed tests on light-gauge chain link fences. Their tests showed that a 75-pound dog and 100-pound child could damage or cause the chain link fence to fall. The Chain Link Fence Manufacturers Institute also learned that once the average consumer was educated on the differences in chain link fence, the consumers would select the heavier gauge fence.

Seal & Stain Fences
While all the lumber we use when constructing fences is either chemically treated or naturally resistant to rot and decay, we strongly suggest water sealing your fencing to extend the life and natural beauty of the wood. Sealing a fence should be done a few months after installation, when the lumber is well dried. Staining wooden fencing is another popular option that will allow your fence to be almost any color desired. By contacting one of our many project managers, they can provide you with pricing and different stain and seal options.
We also provide fence restoration services. Contact us to find out more.
