QUESTION OF THE MONTH

QUESTION:   I live on Lake Virginia in Winter Park and Don't want the post to rot.  What is the best type of materials to use as we approach the water's edge? Amy S.

ANSWER:  More likely than not, Winter Park requires the use of some type of metal, aluminum, or vinyl fence within the last 50 feet of the edge of the water which is running perpendicular to the lake.   Winter Park can be strict on height, type, and location of fences when it comes to lakes.  Every property is different, so the best thing to do is speak with planning and zoning department and ask.  Kip HudaKoz

      Lisa:

      Great question. The type of design and material should be determine in the architecture of your home. For example, lets say your house is linear by nature its important to incorporate a fencing system that possesses the same linear concept. As for materials, examine your home a look for architectural elements made of wood, metal, or stone. Pick the one that would create an aesthetic blend.

      Great Question:

      Ninety percent of the effects mentioned are created by two simple misconceptions:
      (1) All lumber is created equal.
      (2) All fence companies can create quality custom fence.

      At CustomFenceOrlando.com, we are well researched. We visit the wood millers, pressure treating plants, and chemical makers of the treatment it’s self. Most importantly, we do are own in house test and experiments. We understand how the species of the tree, the milling method, the size and grade, and the fasteners contribute to the long term aesthetics of a fence. It’s little things such as the number of growth rings a tree possess is directly tied to the lumbers ability to resist against fungal decay and termites. Simply put, we take the time to understand the little things others often over look.

      Then there are the discount and outlet fence companies who deliver lowest cost custom fence solutions directly to the Orlando Florida market, all at the lowest quality and highest possible mark up. What they don’t see are the little things. What they do see are dollar signs. What the homeowner see is warping and cracking and discoloration So yes. wood does have the potential to only look good for a year or two before it warps, cracks and fades.

      The key is to have that fence built by a company who understand the little things. Below are four things to consider which should help minimize the warping, cracking, and discoloration:

      (1) Finish Grade Cedar, Kiln Dried Cypress, Pressure Treated Pine preserved with Eco-life, must be used to minimize warping, splitting, and checking.
      (2) The thicker the lumber the better it will perform.
      (3) The post spacing and depth matter. Post should be a minimum of six feet apart and maximum of eight apart with a 50% leverage ratio.
      (4) Stainless steel screws and ring shank nails is your best options.
      (5) A preservation budget for a good oil base wood sealant.

      I hope that helps,
