Wood Fences

Wood Fences

Our wood fences are made out of two types of wood that are both well suited for the Florida Climate. We carry Cypress and Pressure Treated Pine. While the posts and back rails for all wood fences we carry are pressure treated pine, your pickets could be either PT pine or cypress pickets to make the fence. You choose! One of the most frequently asked questions is which one is better, Pressure Treated Pine (PT Pine), or Cypress? While there are many opinions and preferences, we prefer to share the pros and cons of both types of wood and let our customers decide which is best for them.

Keep in mind that no matter what type of wood you build your fence out of, your fence will warp, crack and twist over time. This is the nature of wood and happens to all wood fences as they age and are exposed to the elements on a daily basis. You can reduce the aging of your fence by following a strict maintenance regimenPaint or Stain will keep the moisture off the fence and will keep your fence from looking gray and weathered. Without the constant cycle of rain and sun, you will see less warping, cracking and twisting. You should also replace all posts, pickets and back rails that warp or crack to prevent them from creating more damage to your fence and to maintain the integrity of your fence. Our wood fences are built with the highest quality products available in our industry.

Another consideration in the longevity of your wood fence is the thickness of your pickets. The thicker the picket, the less chance of it warping, cracking or twisting over time. While this is true, there is also the consideration of the extra cost of using thicker material. 

Cypress grows naturally in the Southeast and is a commonly used in construction. It is a dense coarse wood and its tight dense fibers make it more resistant to warping and cracking when exposed to the Florida Climate. Because cypress generates its own preservative oil, called cypressene, it’s an ideal wood for Florida with constant heat, humidity, and torrential rains. Its slower growth rate also results in fewer knot holes. Cypress is naturally resistant to insects, but it is only used above ground. The posts and rails of cypress fences are Pressure Treated Pine.

The Pressure Treated Pine that we use to build our fences is sourced both domestically and from South America. Pine is a very popular material for wood fences because of its price and because it can be treated (Pressure Treated) to make it resistant to rot, decay and insects. Pine grows fairly quickly and is therefore easier to grow on a commercial scale. When compared to cypress, pine generally is not as dense and has more knot holes in it. Both materials are well suited to the Florida Climate, but it is important to protect either type of material from the elements with a good quality wood stain or sealer to keep your wood fence looking good for a long time.

Regardless of the type of wood you choose, you have the option of a variety of styles of wood fences.

As someone who doesn’t currently live in Florida, working with True Fence in Punta Gorda was a great experience. They took care of all the permits and did a great job with installation.

Just had True Fence LLC installed my fence , the fence looks great . From the beginning the process was very easy , dealing with the owner Keilly Trujillo was great , she was very professional and communicated with me every step of the way !! The crew that installed the fence are very professional and friendly. I added extra panels and they took care of it without a problem , would definitely recommend them for any fence project . Their price was very reasonable compared to other companies I quoted .

What an amazing business practice these guys have! Their customer service is more like 10 Stars.! After many setbacks on completion of our new home, True Fence has been super accommodating and understanding. Keilly is great, helped me obtain all the appropriate paperwork for our HOA and even took time to address some concerns from the HOA. At the time of this review, the builders are still not done with our new house, but looking forward to the final install soon.! Thanks to Keilly and the group for being awesome.!
