Wood Fence Styles With a Top-Rated Tampa, Florida Fence Company

Tampa, Florida Wood Fence Styles and Designs

While the basic components of all fences are the same, their design and style can vary greatly. As a top fencing contractor in Tampa, Florida, we can customize the style of our wood fences to suit your specific needs. Whether you want a classic, welcoming picket fence or a sturdy privacy fence, we got you covered. We also have options for different posts and gates to further customize the look of each fence. We provide a wide range of designs and styles to ensure that your fence reflects the exact aesthetic you’re looking for.

Photo of a shadowbox style wood fenceShadowbox Wood Fence This fence creates a distinct “shadow” effect by alternating pickets on both sides with a gap in between that allows air to flow through the pickets, which is beneficial in high winds. When viewed from the front, the gaps make it appear solid. However, from an angle, you can see through to the other side, making it a semi-private option. Another advantage of a shadowbox design is that each side looks identical, making it the ideal “good neighbor” fence.

The overlapping design results in a sturdy, solid fence that’s just as attractive from either side, though the additional material required adds to the cost. With no gaps or spacing between pickets, board-on-board fencing is great for those seeking maximum privacy. The pickets can be oriented vertically or horizontally, giving you additional options.

It is also sometimes called stockade fencing. Just like board-on-board fencing, this can be installed horizontally or vertically with no overlapping. Additional looks can be achieved with the side-by-side style by customizing the top portion of your fence with a common dog-ear top, scallop top, lattice, or even a cap and trim topper to add a finished look to the top of your fence.

Split rail fences are commonly used to demarcate a residential property line from the road and are mostly used for decorative purposes. Because split rail fences have large openings, they don’t work well for keeping smaller animals, such as dogs, in or out of the property unless additional wire panels are added, but they work well for large animals, such as horses or livestock. Split rail fencing is a cost-effective option for property owners who need to fence large areas of land.

These fences do not have the rough-cut and rustic appearance of split rail fences. Horizontal posts are typically six feet apart and five feet tall. They can have two, three, or four horizontal rails to keep livestock from roaming and are generally considered functional rather than decorative.

Fencing Contractor in Tampa, Florida Uses Quality Materials

When you want your wood fence to last, then using the right materials is key. We use pressure-treated pine for all of our projects. When compared to natural wood, pressure-treated lumber will last far longer in any environment where it is exposed to the elements like consistent moisture. Its insect and fungal resistance also help it to outlast natural wood, and because it tends to be denser than untreated wood products, it also has increased strength. As a top-rated fencing contractor in Tampa, Florida, we make sure to use the highest quality, long-lasting products available so that our customers get the most from their investment.

Vinyl fences are a bright, bold fence choice. Available in a variety of colors, vinyl fencing can be installed in a many configurations to help you enhance the beauty of your property. And, because vinyl isn’t as porous as wood, vinyl fences retain their color and finish much longer than wood fencing so you can enjoy your fence for years to come.

Easy to Clean

Vinyl fencing can be cleaned easily with a regular garden hose. If you get a little mildew from moisture or shady conditions, you can use a mild dish soap and then spray off the fence with a garden hose. Vinyl fences are very easy to clean, making them a great option for low-maintenance fencing.
