The Consultation and Design Process

Every great fence project begins with a detailed consultation. At Heron Building Co, we pride ourselves on our personalized approach, ensuring that each client’s unique vision and needs are met. For this project, we started with an on-site meeting with the homeowners to understand their preferences and any known HOA or Architectural Committee requirements. They desired a fence that provided privacy, matched their home’s facade, and added an elegant touch to their property.

Crafting a Detailed Installation Quote

Following the consultation, we crafted a detailed fence design and installation quote. This included a clear sketch of the future fence, outlining the dimensions, materials, and specific details of the installation process. Transparency is key, so we ensure our clients are fully informed about every aspect of their project.

Premium Materials and Expert Craftsmanship

For this project, we used standard #2-grade pressure-treated southern pine lumber. Southern pine is ideal for pressure treating because its density allows it to accept and retain the treatment better than most other types of wood. This treatment helps protect the wood against rot, decay, and insect damage, ensuring the longevity of the fence.

The pickets were firmly secured with the highest quality ring-shank galvanized nails. These nails are specifically chosen to prevent backing out and ensure a much stronger and more durable hold, reducing warping and loose pickets over time.

Cap and Trim Style Wood Fence

We opted for a cap and trim style wood fence, which not only enhances the structural integrity of the fence but also adds a decorative element. This style includes a horizontal trim board at the top, providing a finished look and added protection against weathering.

The Charm of Brick Columns

One of the standout features of this project is the integration of custom-built wood fence panels with brick columns. This combination is growing in popularity due to its timeless charm and the extra value it adds to a home. The brick columns provide a sturdy framework for the wood panels, creating a seamless architectural element that ties in beautifully with the residence.
