How often should I stain my fence?

imagesAs a rule of thumb you should stain a fence every 5 to 7 years depending on the type of wood.  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.

 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 cover 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.

 

 

Outdoor Fireplace

Titan Fence can create exterior living spaces with amenities that range from fireplaces, pergolas and outdoor kitchens.

Sliding Vs. Swing

electric gateThe majority of rear entry homes in North Texas have a fenced in backyard that stops at the driveway.  If a homeowner extends the fence across the driveway then up the property line, the size of the entire backyard increases as much as 40%.

Having a driveway fenced in creates a larger play area for children perfect for a basketball court, skate boards or roller blades.  The driveway being fenced off from the alley also eliminates the fear of children being struck by a car while playing in the driveway.

Sliding vs Swing

If you’re planning your automated access gate, you may be stuck on deciding which to go with: sliding or swing. Truly, neither mode of operation is better than the other. Both sliding and swing gates can provide years of lasting use. For Automatic Swing Gates, use of hydraulic or mechanical operators will ensure trouble free installation and use. Sliding gates occur more frequently in commercial or industrial applications, but can be modified for residential use. Titan Fence offers an inventory flush with different operating and control options Titan Fence expert will work with you on deciding which mode is best suited to your new or existing fence configuration.

Referral Program

Keeping our neighborhoods attractive is a responsibility every homeowner shares. The overall appearance of our properties has three primary ingredients other than the house itself.
The ingredients are the lawn, the landscape and of course our fence. All three of these items drastically affect the value of a home. As a home ages so does a fence and if not replaced it can become an eyesore that negatively affects an entire neighborhood.
If you know someone who has a fence that desperately needs replacing we are offering a free $50 gift to you if you refer them to us and they purchase a new fence. All you have to do is have them contact us and give us your name and phone number. Once the fence is purchased and completely installed we will send you the gift card. It is that simple! This referral program will run until the end of 2014.

High Quality Wood Fencing

Why pay more for high-quality wood?capped-crop-250-175

 

A fence constructed from high-quality materials is your best defense against the elements. Overtime, the harsh Texas weather can exact considerable damage to your property. Our experts use high-quality fence supplies and materials that work to resist extreme temperature and humidity. Updating your fence is an investment in your future and increases your home’s value.
According to the International Association of Certified Home Builders, a wood fence has an approximate lifespan of about 20 years with regular maintenance. A fence’s life expectancy can be increased significantly if you pay more up front for a high-quality wood.

Here are a few of the species that tend to hold up better than others:

Western Red Cedar

White Oak Pressure

Treated Pine

Plastic Lumber

Frisco is Growing

Frisco logo

Frisco is going to need several new fences!

One North Texas city got a glimpse at its future and leaders were shocked by what the area is projected to look like in 20 years.  Frisco city leaders are developing a new plan for  future growth now that the population will be much bigger than earlier projected.

http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2014/04/24/frisco-leaders-shocked-by-increase-in-population-projections/

The Frisco Independent School District is desperately trying to keep up with the city’s growth.  In 1998, the district only had 3,800 students. Today, just 16 years later, there are 45,000. And by 2020, the district estimates it will have 62,000.

As this explosive growth occurs Titan Fence is poised to meet the fencing needs required by schools, businesses and homeowners.
