Custom Designed Fence
Most fences are constructed with three basic elements: post, rails and infill material. Posts run vertically and create each “section” of the fence line, rails run horizontally between each post and are supported by the posts. You typically find them at the top and bottom of each section.
The infill is where you have a little more room to play around with your design: your boards can go vertically or horizontally, can have flat tops or ones with shapes such as pointed or dogeared, and can be laid in various patterns depending on the look you are trying to achieve.

Privacy fences and walls are great when you live on a busy street or are surrounded by noisy neighbors. Using Pre-Built Cedar Panels makes fence building simple as most of the work is already done for you! Due to cedar’s natural ability to resist rot, insects and moisture, pre-built panels require very little maintenance yet can be stained to match your homes aesthetic.
Fraserview Cedar Products Pre-Built Fence Panels are made with three Western Red Cedar 2″ x 4″ back rails for maximum stability and durability. They also use 1×6 pickets with “no-hole” to eliminate any warp. To learn more about Fraserview Panels, visit them here.
