Each wood fence will have these important parts.
If you can name any parts included in the anatomy of a wood fence, the posts probably come to mind first.
As for the pickets, they’re the big planks that make up the body of your wood fence. They sit in between the posts and perpendicular to the rails.
The cap goes on top of your fence’s main posts. If you enjoy personalizing your property, the cap is a great tool to incorporate a sense of aesthetics to your fence.
Or, you can leave it simple, clean, and classic. The choice is yours! Just another one of the benefits of a custom fence.
A gate can open to allow entry through your fence. It consists of a latch for unlocking, hinges to let it swing open or closed, and a handle to move it. It may also feature a padlock or keypad for additional security.
Moisture is the enemy of all wood fences. Not only can it cause rot, but it can invite pests. Fortunately, a kickboard can prevent those problems.
How? It provides a pressure-treated foundation to your wood fence.
Some fence owners want a sleeker look. Trim can make everything look more uniform, as it conceals the fasteners connecting different parts of the fence.
