The foundation of a strong horizontal board fence is attaching the posts firmly to the ground. With the posts on the ground, you can now come up with unusual and unique designs for your fence. A horizontal board fencing often involves nailing boards to the posts with uniform gaps between them. However, thinking out of the box does not hurt. You can make use of simple designs like using boards of different widths and nail them I different styles. Our personnel can make sketches for some eye-catching styles, or still, you can present other forms of wood fences.


The rails are necessary to add on the strength of the fence. You can opt to position the top rail behind the top board. This is an example. There are other ways of attaching it depending on what suits your design best. You can then cut the rails in a manner that they will slip between the posts. We then clip the rails to the posts using either nails or screws. Fence clips can also play a significant role in the same. Besides building the fence with the clips is quite simple.

Horizontal Board Fences


After fixing the rails, we attach the horizontal boards, taking measures from center to center. We then fit the boards to that length and horizontally fit them to the posts and fasten them. We fix the solid boards according to the style we agree upon. When fitting them, we leave small gaps to prevent decay. At this point, we can now establish whether the fence is strong or it requires more support. If not, we add more vertical support at the center of each part of the fence.

For a finishing touch, you can add some post caps. We have an array of styles of the post caps you can choose from to get one that matches your design. We have caps made of wood, copper, glass and other metals. We also have others that light with the help of solar power.


For a highly durable fence, it is good you went the pricey way whereby you use a dense wood which does not rot. It is also fire resistant and no damage by animals. You can also go for other options like cedar or pressurized wood.

Also, keep in mind that there is clear cedar and knotty cedar. Knotty cedar is that one with blemishes and is imperfect. Clear cedar nearly matches the quality of ipe and ages beautifully with a lovely gray color. Purchasing the cedar can be quite expensive, but you will not remember this with the merits that will arise from your cedar horizontal board fence.


Some preparations are necessary before installing the fence. If in case the areas have trees or have roots, uproot or cut them. Also restructuring if the area is prone to erosion is essential.

Al these are steps that our professionals are willing to work with you. All you need is to call Bar Area Automatic Gate and Fences for these quality services.
