Customizations You Can Add to Your Wood Fence

You’ve determined that a wood privacy fence makes the most sense for you and your family, but a standard privacy fence doesn’t quite suit your personal taste. There’s no need to worry – there are plenty of customization options for your wood fence that will ensure your fence choice is exactly what you’re looking for.

When looking to customize your privacy fence there are a variety of options to choose from like: rails, frames, caps and trims, fence staining and of course fence height. Below we will go into details of each of these customization options so that you can determine exactly what will suit your taste.

Wood Rails

Wood rails are exactly what they sound like – wooden boards (rails) that are used to support the vertical planks that compose a wood privacy fence. Not only do these provide additional support and security for your fence, but they also add additional character to your fence. Wood rails are typically applied horizontally which can then be supplemented by steel frames and posts

Steel Frames and Posts

Similarly to wood rails, steel frames also provide stability and durability to a standard wood privacy fence. Although steel frames and posts tend to give your fence a more industrial look, you won’t have to worry about any sort of maintenance that comes with wood to prevent insect or water damage and rotting.

Caps and Trims

Fence trim and caps are decorative pieces that are added to the top of a wood privacy fence for added flair. Some decorative trim options for privacy fences include lattice tops and panel inserts. If you’re looking for a smoother, cleaner look however, a fence cap might be your best bet. Either way you go, you can rest assured knowing that your fence will have a unique and custom look.

Fence Stains

Wood fences don’t just come in a single color. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. There are plenty of wood stain options to give you any color fence you could imagine. You can choose to go as dark as possible, or you can go with a light stain color to simply reap the wood-protecting benefits of a fence stain. No matter the direction you choose, your fence is sure to match your style perfectly.


Although there are standard fence heights, fences can really be customized to any height you desire. Typically, fences range from five to seven feet, but eight foot fences are particularly useful when you’re trying to block out commercial buildings or unruly neighbors. You can even select to choose different heights on different sides of your backyard to give your backyard the privacy you’re looking for.

As you can see, there are a variety of customization options you can choose from when designing your fence. The best part is, there are no wrong decisions!
