Strong Wood Posts
There is simply no way to stress enough - the importance of strong posts that are properly installed for the strength and life of your wood fence!

When properly installed by our expert fence team, our wood fence posts will stand strong and last for years. Quality matters! Our wood fences are built and expertly installed to look great and to stand the test of time! It all starts with a strong fence post!

All of our wood fence posts, rails, and pickets are expertly chosen and installed, to maximize the life of your wood fence in Birmingham Alabama.

Strong Wood Rails
Did you know that there are different grades and types of wood? Our professional-grade wood rails are what separates us from many of our competitors. Our rails are of a higher grade than other options we see across the Birmingham Alabama region. This is an important difference, because the horizontal rails fail frequently on lower-quality wood fences. We see it all the time!

People sitting on the top of the fence, climbing the fence, leaning heavy objects against the fence, or branches falling onto the top of the fence can all easily damage a low-quality wood fence rail! Rot, splitting, warping ... these are all much more likely and much more severe with lower quality wood materials. Our wood fences are built to last and a key reason our wood fences last so long and look like new - is because of the higher quality wood fencing materials we install for our residential and our commercial clients.

All of our wood fence posts, rails, and pickets are expertly chosen and installed, to maximize the life of your wood fence in Birmingham Alabama.

High-Quality Wood Pickets
Just like our posts and our rails, we install high-quality wood fence pickets. The thicker, wider, and higher-density wood cost a little more than the cheap wood sold at big box stores - however wood fences across Birmingham Alabama take a lot of abuse and our high-quality pickets are proven to be more resilient! For wood fences that last and look great, high-quality wood pickets are a must!

All of our wood fence posts, rails, and pickets are expertly chosen and installed, to maximize the life of your wood fence in Birmingham Alabama.
