Quality materials are vital for a long lasting fence. Unlike some companies, all of our wood is treated to prevent rotting and breaking. Our method requires the fence is assemble piece by piece using 4" x 4" wood post or metal posts, treated 2" x 4" x 16' running boards and 1" x 6" x 6' rough cut pickets. For extra security for your pets, we can add treated 2”x 6" x 16' running boards at the bottom of the fence to prevent digging and tunneling. Due to the length of the runner, the lumber is milled from the heart of large and mature trees. The pores are small or often closed. As a result, warping and cupping are minimized. To ensure all lumber remains secure, we use a series of special treated tipped, ACQ rated, ring-shank nails. A ring-shank nail has 50 reversed ovular rings which acts like threads on a screw when it punctures the wood.
