A Privacy Fence for Your Backyard

small garden and privacy fenceYour home is your domain; you want all your spaces to be secure and protected from both outsiders and unwanted attention.

At Titan Fence, we specialize in backyard privacy fences to give your family a safe space to live and play. Our sturdy, well-built fences give you peace of mind that your family and pets can play, swim, cook-out, and enjoy your outdoor spaces without having to worry about breaches in your perimeter. We also specialize in building privacy fences that enhance your property values and complement the aesthetics of your home.

Are you looking for a Frisco fence company to handle your next fencing project? Titan Fence has years of experience building strong, long-lasting fences in the North Texas area. As a family-owned business, we pride ourselves on using the best materials and building methods, so we can protect your family as if it was our own.

The most common building material for a privacy fence is wooden boards. At Titan, we use Western Red Cedar or Spruce Pine, depending on your needs and budget. Cedar contains natural oils that help protect it from insects and erosion, while more affordable spruce can be treated with oil-based stains and sealants. Both of these materials are ideal for side-by-side or board-on-board fences, and can be made in a traditional vertical alignment or with a more modern horizontal construction.

Customize Your Fence – We Can Keep Up!

At Titan Fence, there are no cookie-cutter solutions for backyard fencing. We love giving our clients a fence they will love, so we encourage you to look at customization options. There are many features we have provided in the past: dog-eared picketing, ornamental iron accents, view-through windows, dog windows, and customized gates. Tell us what you are looking for and we’ll find a solution.

We routinely build access gates for residential communities, and can provide swinging or sliding gates to maximize your space. We routinely install secure access gates with card, code, or other entry systems.

Wrought Iron Gates for Residential Communities & Homes

iron gatesStrong, Beautiful, and Durable – Ornamental Iron Gates

Are you in the market for a new residential fence or gate? Wooden fences are the standard for backyard privacy fences, but they lack the appeal and strength of elegant ornamental iron. If you are looking for a way to secure your residential property that doesn’t interfere with the natural beauty of the landscape, ornamental wrought iron gates may best meet your needs.

Are you looking for a Plano fence company to help you with your next fencing project? As a family owned and operated business, Titan Fence takes pride in the exemplary quality of our work. We treat every job as if it were our own home or community, and ensure you get the best materials and craftmanship for your property.

Control Access with Elegance

Ornamental iron gates and fences offer homes and residential communities a way to control access and driveways with elegance. Durable powder-coated iron is strong enough to maintain a secure perimeter, but conveys a classic manor-style aesthetic that adds sophistication to your property.

Gates made from iron tend to last decades longer than wooden fences and can secure a home or community without hiding or interfering with the beauty of your buildings and landscaping.

Options for Wrought Iron Gates

There are a number of features to think about of you are thinking of having wrought iron gates built. Will they be needed at multiple entry points, or just one central entry point? Are they needed solely for car access, or will a pedestrian gate also be needed? What height is suitable for your needs? Whatever your goals, Titan Fence has the experience and knowledge to get the job done.

Iron Gate Design – If security from trespassers is the primary concern, fence and gate height and post-width may be different than if you are hoping to keep animals inside or outside your fence. We also offer a number or ornamental iron accents and post-tops, to ensure your fence and gate convey the image that best complements the property.

Gate Opening Mechanism – For private residences, gates can be constructed with a sliding or swinging entrance, to best meet your space and design goals. Sliding gates tend to work better when space is limited, as they can retract into existing fencing without impeding traffic flow or parking space.

Energy Saving Features – Our gates can be constructed to run on either electricity or solar power. If you are concerned with energy and money-saving features, a solar powered gate is an excellent way to add to your “green” factor.

Secure Entry – Whether a one-family or multi-family residence, we can provide access gates with keypad, telephone, remote control, and/or card entry.

Your Local Experts

At Titan Fence, we’ve built thousands of fences and gates in the North Texas area. We know how best to select and prepare materials for the unique elements of our local weather and seasons.

With iron, the high humidity and heat can create an environment that contributes to rust, so we make sure our iron fences and gates are treated with the highest-quality powder coating. We use a strong, protective layer to inhibit scratches and rusting; this finish enhances the appearance of the iron fence and offers a smooth surface for painting.

Ranch Style Fencing

Many of our clients still have a need for ranch style fencing.  Believe it or not there are still quite a few functioning ranches in and around DFW.  Texas and the term “Ranch” go hand in hand.  So what is the real definition of a ranch?  Patrick Murfee, the administrator of the Ranching Heritage Association in Lubbock, actually laughed out loud when we asked for one when being interviewed by Texas Monthly Magazine.  After talking to him and other experts in the field, they settled on four criteria that a Texas ranch must meet.

  1. On the land in question, livestock—cattle, goats, horses, and the like—must be raised for profit.
  1. The land can be noncontiguous but must be managed as one ranch—an important point, since many ranches, including the King Ranch, are made up of several chunks of land, some of which are hundreds of miles apart but are overseen by the same person or group.
  1. The land must be in Texas. (Nearly 50 percent of the ranch owners on our list have acreage in other states or countries.)
  1. The land must be primarily owner-operated; that is, owned and run by the same people, or at least members of the same family. Leased land doesn’t count. That’s why the venerable Kenedy Ranches aren’t on the list.

IN TEXAS IN 1998 THE RECIPE FOR FAME AND FORTUNE CALLS FOR NERDS, not herds. But you couldn’t get the owners of the state’s twenty largest ranches to trade their hundreds of thousands of acres—not even for millions of dollars in Dell Computer stock.

Protecting your fence from the elements!

stain-fenceThe amount of rain DFW has received this year is a reminder that protecting a fence is a critical to extending its life expectancy. As a rule of thumb you should stain a fence every 5 to 7 years depending on the type of wood.

It’s impossible to completely prevent the natural weathering that occurs to a wood fence over the years, but you can slow the process by protecting the wood regularly from the elements. The stain you use to on the wood must cover every part of the wood exposed to moisture. It’s also important to use galvanized or stainless steel hardware in the wood because these metals won’t rust and they resist warping.

We always recommend a Cedar fence.  Cedar has natural oils and acids in the wood that make it undesirable to most insects. This allows the wood to be installed in its unfinished form and last for many years. Cedar also warps less than Whitewood or Pine fences.

Fences provide security for our homes

SAMSUNG DIGIMAX D530

Nothing provides security for a home like a fence.  A well-built quality fence is a visual and physical deterrent for criminals looking to break into our homes.  A fence will force a criminal to scale it – thereby alerting anyone else observing this act suspiciously.

Fences will provide a “psychological barrier” to some would-be criminals – meaning that the act of climbing over a fence will discourage some folks from wandering into a yard.  However, in general, fences will deter some and slow down others; they will not stop a determined criminal.  Making sure your fence is secure and gates are locked at night or when leaving town will help protect all of your property and loved ones.  See more tips on how to protect your home.

Titan Fencing in Raytheon Headquarters in Richardson

The ongoing economic development in the North Texas area is certainly keeping Titan’s commercial division busy.

Titan is installing industrial commercial fencing from www.ameristarfence.com at Raytheon’s new Richardson location.   Once complete, the three-building, 489,000-square-foot facility in Richardson will house about 1,700 employees. The City Line development is southeast of President George Bush Turnpike and North Central Expressway.

Richardson Mayor Laura Maczka said the project helps the city strengthen its Telecom Corridor moniker with a development firm that has worked on a number of Richardson developments, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, Fossil, and the former Nortel Networks campus.

Raytheon plans to move into the new corporate campus by the end of 2015.

Rot boards for fences

wood fence rot boardThe life expectancy of a privacy wood fence can be extended a number of ways.  These include first and foremost using quality materials, staining the wood and the use of rot boards.  The base of a fence is subject to more wear and tear than any other part of a fence.  Fence pickets that come in direct contact with the soil begin to breakdown due to moisture in the soil.  Lawn mowers, weed eaters and moisture account for the majority of damage the bottom of a fence sustains.  A rot board is typically a treated piece of lumber that is a two-by-six placed horizontally along the bottom edge of the inside or outside of a fence to protect it from the elements.

 

A privacy fence with a rot board in place also helps keep smaller household pets from digging under a fence as well as keeping out such unwanted pests as wild rabbits that tend to be a nuisance in many residential communities.    Having a rot board installed during the initial construction phase allows the fence pickets to be placed above ground level to prevent normal wear and tear as well.  Rot boards may also be easily replaced after years of use to further extend the life of a wood fence.

 

Rot boards are expensive but if you consider the years of additional use it adds to your fence they are well worth the investment.

FENCE REPLACEMENT MAINTAINS PROPERTY VAUES

Wood FenceKeeping our neighborhoods attractive is a responsibility every homeowner shares. The overall outside appearance of our properties is a combination of several things in addition including the lawn, the landscape and of course our fence. As a home ages so does the fence and if not replaced they can become an eyesore that negatively affects an entire neighborhood. The life span of a standard cedar picket fence provided by most home builders is only 6 to 8 eight years. Fence replacement becomes a must at this point since homeowner associations do fine residents for fences that do not meet specific standards. Repairing a fence that has exceeded its life expectancy is not recommended since it ends up being an ongoing repair project.
At Titan our fences are built to last. We only use the  highest quality fence materials and supplies, and we adhere to the highest design standards. We delight in adding value to your property by beautifying and securing it with a fence that’s designed and installed properly.
