Residential fences are available in a range of heights and designs and are a great way to mark your property line.

Residential Privacy fence

A residential privacy fence will offer you the most privacy for your property. That’s because the fence, once constructed, will be solid without any gaps in it. Privacy fences can be built taller than average fences, local ordinance permitting. They are ideal for keeping animals or small children inside your yard as well.

Residential fence and gate

For getting in and out of your front yard, why not add a residential fence gate to complete the look? These can be built along with the original fence or even added later.

Fence Components

A residential fence is made up of a few different parts and it’s helpful to know what they are.

Residential fence panels

Fence panels are the section of the fence that go between the fence posts. You can build panels in a variety of widths, but most common are eight feet wide. If wind resistance is a priority, six feet wide panels are recommended instead to increase stability.

Residential fence rails

In fences, rails are the horizontal support for your residential fence. They are typically a couple inches thick and around five inches wide. For most traditional styles of fences, you will see two rails - one at the top and one at the bottom of the frame.

Residential fence pickets

Pickets are the part of the fence that stand vertically next to each other and are joined together by the rails. Residential fence pickets come in three inch or six inch widths. There are decorative tops to choose from for your picket fence. Those include dog ear, gothic, pointed, or flat tops.

Residential fence post

Fence posts are the main support structures for the fence. The posts can be made of wood, vinyl or metal. Typically posts will be installed every eight feet and set in the ground two to four feet. Standard post thickness for wooden posts are 4” x 4” and 5” by 5” for vinyl. Metal posts can be different thickness.
