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.
At Rockwall Fence, running boards are key to making a strong, solid fence. We install a post every eight feet, but we stagger the running boards. Our method of staggering longer runners, coupled with the posts, creates a long lasting framework. Below is a small example of how the staggered method dramatically improves the strength of your new fence. Notice that each 16 foot running board connects to 3 posts and that there is not one post that all the running boards are butted together. Most fence companies only use 8 foot running boards and they are butted against each other making a natural pivot point every 8 feet. When a fence is built this way it is build in sections every 8 feet. Our way of building a fence we build it were the fence is all one unit making it so strong you will never have to worry about it falling over even in the strongest storm.
Only a small percent of Companies build to our standard. WHY? The answer is simple: The material requirements cost more, the skills needed for installation are greater, and the profit margin is lower. It is just a fair exchange between homeowners and companies which promotes long term growth. Our method of building can last approximately 12 to 15+ years in both splendor and longevity. It just depends on how well the individual homeowner takes care of the fence.

Josh and his team at Rockwall fence took the time to do a quality job replacing my existing fence with board over board 8 foot and installing a section on the opposite side of the drive way / house, designing it to place a sliding gate in the future with minimal rework. Josh thoroughly explained the entire process and supplied options as needed on my project. Just finished staining a few days back the fence looks great! I would highly recommend the team at Rockwall Fence for any of your fencing needs.

We moved into a house in Nevada,Tx. in January. The fence was in bad shape, so I knew it needed to be replaced. I wanted to extend it further back also.I wanted a stained cedar fence.I contacted Josh for an estimate. He replied quickly and gave me a good estimate. Josh, Nathan, and the rest of the crew did an outstanding job taking down the old fence and hauling it off. They then built the best fence I have owned in my almost 40 years of home ownership. In addition to building the fence and then staining it perfectly They also built wide gates in the fence for ease of transitioning in and out of the back yard with my truck and garden tractor. Due to the excellent job with the fence, I also hired them to build a 30' X 36' steel building that I ordered from Mueller Steel Buildings. Once again they did an outstanding job. I would recommend Josh and his guys to anyone needing fencing done. I wouldn't hesitate to call them for any kind of work I need done.

Josh Copple at Rockwall Quality Fences and Decks did a great job assuring me of this company's honest, dependable reputation. He provided references who were able to answer my questions about quality and trustworthiness. My fence installation went smoothly and was completed on time. Josh even created a custom dog window in the fence in an area where the ground sloped sharply. He measured my dog's height and head/muzzle width to make sure his design would be absolutely safe and secure while being functional and aesthetically pleasing. It is the nicest dog window I've ever seen! I highly recommend Josh and Rockwall Quality Fences and Decks.
