Stockade fences are wooden fences, but you may not have heard of them before. They can give your home’s landscape a classic look that many homeowners long for these days. Wooden boards are tightly stacked together to create a stockade, and because of this fabrication technique, stockades are great for increasing the amount of privacy around your property.

They Are Incredibly Durable
For one thing, stockade fences are amazingly durable and long-lasting. As we mentioned before, the boards are stacked together in such a way that they don’t present any gaps between them. Chemically-treated wood lasts even longer, especially when compared to untreated wood fences. Did you know that a treated wood fence can last up to two decades? It’s true!
Many Types of Wood
It should come as no surprise that when you want to choose a wooden fence, you have plenty of options before you. In other words, there are many types of wood you can select from; some examples include spruce, cedar, pine, redwood, and of course, pressure-treated lumber.
Easy to Afford
Despite what you may think, stockade fences are actually quite affordable. If you are sticking to a tight budget, then this might be the fencing solution that you’ve been searching for all this time. It can be found under $20 per linear foot. You also need to factor in the cost of the wood as well. Spruce is a decent choice, but it is also a lower grade of wood when compared to higher quality wooden planks like cedar and redwood.
Simple Installation and Maintenance
Although stockade fences are relatively easy to assemble and erect, we still recommend that you rely on professionals to get the job done for you. Besides, you will probably want to verify whether or not you need a permit to put up a new fence. Talk to your HOA representative about what to do next; chances are good that your neighborhood association will have something to say about it. Fortunately, stockades are easy to maintain since you only need to maintain them once every 1-2 years or so. Cleaning and sealing are all you need to do, which is easy enough for the average homeowner to complete.
