Strong Wood Posts
The backbone of any durable wood fence is undeniably its posts, and the quality of those posts is paramount!

We exclusively use PostMaster steel posts for all of our wood fences and they are a gamechanger! PostMaster posts provide unparalleled strength and stability compared to traditional wood posts. The steel posts provide a solid foundation for the wood fence, minimizing the risk of leaning or sagging over time. This ensures that your fence remains straight and upright, even in harsh weather conditions. Everything about your fence relies on the strength of the posts, and we make sure you have the absolute best!

In Richmond Virginia, every component of our wood fences - from the posts to the rails and pickets - is meticulously selected and installed to ensure your fence's durability and long life.

Durable Wood Rails
Did you know that there are different grades and types of wood? Our professional-grade wood rails are what separates us from many of our competitors. Our rails are of a higher grade than other options we see across the Richmond Virginia region. This is an important difference, because the horizontal rails fail frequently on lower-quality wood fences. We see it all the time!

People sitting on the top of the fence, climbing the fence, leaning heavy objects against the fence, or branches falling onto the top of the fence can all easily damage a low-quality wood fence rail! Rot, splitting, warping ... these are all much more likely and much more severe with lower quality wood materials. Our wood fences are built to last and a key reason our wood fences last so long and look like new - is because of the higher quality wood fencing materials we install for our residential and our commercial clients.

All of our wood fence posts, rails, and pickets are expertly chosen and installed, to maximize the life of your wood fence in Richmond Virginia.

High-Quality Wood Pickets
When it comes to the quality and resilience of wood fence pickets, we make no compromises, opting specifically for Western Red Cedar pickets. These pickets are thicker, wider, and denser than the inexpensive wood typically sold at big box stores. The enduring quality is unquestionable, especially given the abuse that wood fences must withstand across Richmond Virginia.

Western Red Cedar is renowned for its beauty, stability, and resistance to decay. It's the reason why our fences last longer and continue to look great. For a truly lasting wood fence that stands up to the elements, high-quality Western Red Cedar pickets are essential.

We carefully choose and expertly install all of our Western Red Cedar wood fence posts, rails, and pickets, to maximize the life of your wood fence in Richmond Virginia. Trust in the unique properties of Western Red Cedar for a fence that not only looks impressive but stands the test of time!

Pricing on all fencing materials can fluctuate, but generally speaking, the up-front cost of wood fencing is usually lower than some other types of fencing. Keep in mind that wood fencing needs to be maintained by sealing and staining it over time, so its maintenance should be considered in the total cost of your purchase.

In Richmond Virginia, it's advisable to stain wood fences to protect them from the elements and prolong their lifespan. Guardian Fence is here to help with that need. We offer professional staining services using high-quality Wood Defender products, available in their complete range of colors, ensuring your fence not only has added protection but also maintains its aesthetic appeal.

We encourage you to speak with one of our wood fence experts before focusing solely on price! There are cheaper, inferior-quality fence materials available that will only last for a while. We don't use them. There are also very inexperienced and unprofessional fence installers who continually cut corners and don't stand behind their work, regardless of their so-called warranty.

Wood fences must stand up to Richmond Virginia high winds, harsh weather, and physical abuse from animals, kids, gardeners, and neighbors. Shopping for the cheapest fence is generally not the best way to choose the fence you want to protect and beautify your home and the people you care about.

Wood fences, due to their natural material composition, typically do not come with warranties. However, at Guardian Fence, we understand the importance of quality and assurance. That's why we use PostMaster posts which carry an outstanding limited lifetime warranty. Additionally, we stand by our craftsmanship and are proud to offer a lifetime workmanship warranty on all our wood fence installations.

Whether you need a residential wood fence or a commercial-grade wood fence, it generally only takes a few days (maximum) for one of our fence experts to get to most areas of Richmond Virginia - to walk your property and give you a detailed estimate of your entire wood fence project.

You can certainly call us to get even faster answers from our fence experts!

Once you approve the estimate, we can often install wood fences in most of Richmond Virginia within 1 to 3 weeks, but please check with our office of your specific project. There are times throughout the year where that timeframe may be less, or it may be longer.

There are "other" things that can delay the start of a fencing project. If you select a specific type of wood, or post options or decorative options that need to be special ordered; that will often delay the installation of your fence. We will help you to identify, in advance, any of your choices that are known to be likely to cause these additional delays, and we will offer alternatives whenever possible.

DIY Fence Estimate

If you'd like to get a rough idea on your own about how much fencing you will need, follow these easy steps:

  • If you happen to know the dimensions of the area you wish to enclose, simply add the length of each side together. Use a tape measure. Rough estimates are fine, there is no need to be too precise, this is just a rough estimate at this point.
  • Be sure to subtract the length of any structures (like a building or a storage shed that will serve as part of the barrier). This will give you a rough estimate as to how much fencing you will need.
  • An additional step to get greater accuracy for the amount of wood fencing you will need, is to also subtract the length of any gates you will be using. The gates are often priced much differently than the fencing is. For this reason we usually recommend to property owners who are looking to develop their own fence estimate, to list the gates separately. A standard wood walk gate is approx 4 feet wide and a standard wood drive gate can easily be 10 feet wide or more.


Wood fencing is priced and sold by SECTIONS, not by linear feet! Even when the linear footage is included specifically on price estimates ... the total number of wood fence sections is a factor in this pricing. So, "price per linear foot" is only a rough estimate and rarely represents the actual cost of the finished wood fence!

This is a very interesting difference that we would love to explore and explain to you if you'd like to speak with one of our fence experts further. Be aware, "price per linear foot" is a ploy that many unprofessional fence installers in the Richmond Virginia area use!

Wood fencing is unique in its ability to be utilized for such a wide array of applications. Listed below are some of the most popular applications of wood fencing:

  • Decorative Wood Fencing
    There are many decorative styles of wood fencing - perfect for showcase areas of a property or to set-off a section of your yard. Wood rail fences and wood picket fences are two of the most common decorative styles of wood fencing.
  • Wood Pool Fencing
    Wood fencing is a perfect choice for the perimeter of a property to provide privacy for pool areas. We generally do not recommend wood fencing directly adjacent to the pool itself due to the high moisture content in the air. This moisture can cause the fence to deteriorate more rapidly than normal.
  • Wood Perimeter Fencing
    Wood fencing is the staple of privacy fences. Popular across Richmond Virginia, a 6 foot dogear wood privacy fence is quite possibly the single-most requested fence we install.

Every local municipality in Richmond Virginia has a separate set of requirements when it comes to building permits, and that includes wood fencing. Sometimes the specific height of the fence or placement of the fence or purpose of the fence can impact the need for a permit. There are also HOA considerations in some areas.

We have installed many wood fences in just about every possible area across Richmond Virginia so we are happy to answer these sorts of questions and/or to guide you through the process for your specific situation. This is one of the benefits of working with us!

The best way to get specific answers quickly and accurately is to simply call your town building code office.
