Process We Follow for Post and Rail Fencing

Installing a properly constructed post and rail fence requires expertise, planning, high-quality materials, and precision workmanship. Here is an overview of our process when installing your custom post and rail fence:

Site Evaluation and Planning

  • We thoroughly evaluate your property to determine the best placement and layout for the fence. Important factors include existing structures, trees and landscaping, property lines, and municipal codes.
  • We calculate the linear footage needed and map out post size, spacing, rail height, and other specifications tailored to your site.
  • If permitting is required, we handle the permitting process from start to finish.

Material Selection

  • We use only the best Western Red Cedar or Douglas Fir timber for a durable, long-lasting fence that is naturally resistant to rot and insect damage.
  • Post and rail size and length are determined based on factors like fence height, wind load, and span between posts. We use properly graded and rated lumber.
  • For hardware, we use galvanized steel brackets, rails, bolts, and screws that provide stability without rusting.

Digging Post Holes

  • We use equipment like an auger or backhoe to dig holes for posts at the correct depth and spacing according to the build plan.
  • The holes are dug deeper in areas with loose or sandy soil to ensure sturdy support when set in concrete.
  • If utilities are marked on the property, we carefully avoid them when digging.

Setting the Posts

  • Pressure-treated wood posts are placed in the holes and aligned plumb using post levelers and braces.
  • After verifying alignment, we pour concrete into the holes and allow adequate curing time.
  • For added stability on uneven terrain, metal anchors are driven into the ground at the base of end, corner and gate posts.

Attaching Rails

  • Once the end, corner, and gate posts are set and cured, we span the fence line by attaching rails using galvanized metal brackets.
  • The rails are attached flush or with decorative spacing depending on your preference. The fence will follow the contours of your landscape.
  • For sloped areas, step down cross members are installed to maintain an even rail height throughout.

Finishing Touches

  • We carefully assess the finished fence and make any adjustments needed to ensure straight, properly aligned post and rail assemblies.
  • Once approved, a clear preservative sealer is applied to protect the wood while allowing the natural grain to show through.
  • We do a final walkthrough with you to ensure your complete satisfaction and answer any questions.

We take great pride in every post and rail fence we build, and it shows in the quality of our craftsmanship. Contact us to get started on your custom post and rail fence today!

Cost of Post and Rail Fencing in Vacaville, CA

  • Whether decorative post caps, finials, or lattice inserts are added. These embellishments add to the overall price.

  • Whether stain or sealer is applied for extra protection and aesthetics.

FAQs About Post and Rail Fencing in Vacaville, CA

What are the most common heights for post and rail fences?

The most popular post and rail fence heights are 3, 4, and 5 feet. We can also accommodate custom heights up to 6 feet. Taller fences usually have additional rails for support.

What is the best type of wood?

Western Red Cedar is preferred for its natural beauty, strength, and weather-resistance. We also use Grade A Pressure Treated Pine as a more affordable option.

How far apart are the fence posts installed?

We space posts 6 to 8 feet apart on-center for stability. The span may be shorter in high wind regions. Corner and gate posts are reinforced for added strength.

How long does it take to install a post and rail fence?

It typically takes 1-2 days to install 100 linear feet, depending on the terrain. Permitting and concrete curing add 1-2 weeks. We provide a complete installation timeline.

What is involved in maintaining a post and rail fence?

Occasional checking for damage from falling limbs or wildlife. Re-sealing the fence every 2-4 years will prolong the life. We provide tips on proper care.

What if I want to add a gate?

We can accommodate single gates up to 6 feet wide and double gates up to 12 feet wide. The gate is custom-built from sturdy timber to match the fence.

Can you incorporate decorative elements?

Certainly. We can add post caps, finials, lattice sections, scalloped rails, arbors, and more to customize the look.

How long will a post and rail fence last?

Properly installed Western Red Cedar or Pressure Treated Pine post and rail fences typically last 15-20 years or longer when meticulously maintained.

Can a fence be installed on a sloped yard?

Absolutely. We use special installation methods for slopes and uneven terrain to keep the fencing straight and structurally sound.
