Traditional Wood Fence

Gives you the most flexibility to customize and create the style you want.

Wood FencesWood can be built in any design or height (check out some examples below). Wood fence is generally less expensive than PVC / Vinyl or Aluminum. Wood fence should be treated with a UV sealer, which inhibits fungus and insects about every 2 to 3 years. This will also prevent the fence from turning to a grey weathered look, although some people prefer that look. For more information please call 314.892.2500 or email us here
