A fence around your home can serve many functions. It can deter intruders and give you more privacy. It can also keep animals or small children from running into busy streets. Wood fences will improve the look of your property while also increasing your home’s resale value. Southern Lumber features redwood fencing, which is one of the most desirable wood fencing materials. You’ll also find a variety of fencing accessories to complete the installation of your new fence, including:
When your fence is being built, don’t forget to include at least one gate so you can get in and out without having to go through the house. Fences need special hinges that are designed to withstand the elements, as well as heavy use. Southern Lumber features products from Gatemate, National Hardware, and Stanley Hardware that have proven themselves to be some of the most durable and functional hinges on the market. Your gate will open and close with ease when you select quality gate hinges from Southern Lumber.
To keep intruders out and your family in, your fence should have a latch mechanism. After all, a fence won’t do you much good if it’s open all the time. Choose a sturdy latch that is easy for adults to use, and consider something childproof if you have small children. Check to see if your latch can be used with a padlock or combination lock for even greater levels of security. Southern Lumber also offers a keyed exterior locks by Gatemate, specially designed for gates.
If your gate is not properly constructed, it could sag or warp as time goes on. At Southern Lumber, we offer the No-Sag EasyGate Bracket Kit from Homax to help prevent or repair sagging gates. These kits work with many different gate sizes and are suitable for gates that swing either right or left.
