Picket fences are a popular option for homeowners across the country and have been around since colonial times.
Picket fences are a great addition to any property with a garden or landscaping. However, they do require some maintenance in order for them to continue looking their best every day of the year. This guide will provide you all of the information that you need when it comes to purchasing the installation of your picket fence so that everything goes smoothly from start-to-finish! It's important to know what type of wood is used on these fences before making a purchase because there are a few types of materials, such as, pine, cedar, composite, galvanised steel and PVC, Pine can be less expensive but this quality product may only last about ten years whereas cedar may last as long as twenty years if maintained properly. You'll also want to make sure that each board has at least one side rounded over so that the rough edges won't scratch your car as it drives past.

What is a picket fence?
Picket fences are inexpensive and easy to install because they don't require the use of nails, screws or any other fastening system. This means you can replace just one panel if it's damaged without having to tear down the entire fence. They're also versatile in design with options for both traditional and modern styles. Picket fencing has been used as security for centuries and still continues today! In addition, there are many benefits that come along with installing them around your garden such as:

We offer all of the traditional styles of picket fencing for your garden or property. Our installation crews make sure that they are installed professionally and securely by following our strict guidelines, including:
The fence is cut to size so it can be precisely fit into place or built onto an existing fence line;
We will set out new posts which will strengthen the fencing as well as create a uniform appearance.
A row of railings is added for increased security and stability in high winds. All pins made from galvanised steel with rubber caps on top will help protect against wear and tear. These rails come standard at six inches apart but spaced closer together if needed depending on what you're looking to achieve .
We will also drill our post and rail into the concrete, removing any risk of them becoming uprooted due to digging by animals or children.
The materials used in constructing a picket fence are as follows;
The posts can be made from wood that has been pressure treated with chemicals to offer protection against rot for up to 15 years, or galvanised steel which is aesthetically pleasing and rust proofed so it lasts 25+ years. If you're looking at composite wooden boards they come in various lengths starting at six feet long but often have additional height options such as eight inches high – this can make sense when using short rails with a taller posts, or if you have tall fencing and want to include additional height for your children. The height of the pickets will also affect your cost and should be carefully considered.
Picket fence maintenance involves annual sealing with an oil-based sealant which prevents rotting from water saturation or airborne exposure while providing some resistance to damage caused by squirrels who chew on them. The type of wood used depends heavily on your location and the type of weather you're likely to face in your area.
Picket fencing installation can be a DIY project, or you might choose to hire an experienced contractor like Premium Fencing Derby for some added expertise. It all depends on how much time and effort you want to put into your fence. A common rule of thumb when determining if picket fences are cost-effective would be that they should only account for about one third of the total expenses involved with building or adding onto a house. This is especially true if there are multiple homes on one property line where each homeowner pays part of the price tag but shares the benefits among themselves.
