What Makes Our Wood Fences Better


Built on property: We hand choose each picket and offer only the best wood fences in Houston. This means your choice of southern yellow pine, more commonly known as pressure-treated wood fences and cedar wood fences. We stick build your wood fence on your Houston property so that it is custom graded to your land.'

Screws: One of the most important components is the faster that holds all the pickets securely in place. We use screws, not nails which allows the wood fence to last far longer. This is just one of the reasons we can triple the warranty time that most other Katy fence companies offer.

Post: Your fence is only as strong as the posts ... and ours are expertly installed. We use 50 pounds of concrete, not sand or pea gravel, so when bad storms come, your fence is left standing tall and proud. We also offer our customers the option of steel posts for maximum strength and durability.

Wood Rails: Unlike many of our competitors, we use a three-rail system. We include a middle rail to protect your wood fence from warping and bowing, which is commonly found in poorly installed wood fences in Houston, Katy, and Cypress.  

Picket Wood Fence Ideas


​Standard Dog Ear Picket Wood Fence

The term “dog-ear” comes from the shape of the top of the board and is a common colloquial term for a page of a book that is folded over, resembling the floppy folded ears of your favorite beagle or golden retriever. Instead of a flat top, we hand saw the corners to provide it the shape you see on many wood fences throughout Houston.


​Picket Wood Fence With Gothic Post: Gothic top posts are a simple way to dress up your wood fence in Houston. Not only does it add style to the top of your fence, but it’s hand carved to prevent the cap from coming loose over time and needing to be replaced.


Positive Scallop Wood Fence​: Another popular way to personalize your wood fence and add instant curb appeal that will boost your property value is with a scalloped design. While remarkably beautiful, don’t let these fences intimidate you; they still provide a protective barrier to keep your dogs and kids corralled and safe.

Additional Options

​While most customers choose a picket wood fence in Houston as the leading Katy fence company, we know customers want a one-of-a-kind wood fence that meets all their needs. This is why we offer a variety of options to meet your specific needs. Some of the extra features you may want to add include:


Kicker Boards: A kicker board is a great way to protect the investment of your wood fence against Houston’s harsh weather. This feature is added to the bottom to keep your wood fence from touching the soil, which enables your wood fence to last longer as it prevents the wood from splintering, warping, and cracking due to rain, heat, and humid weather conditions.


Cap & Trim: While most people see the cap and trim of their wood fence as a decorative element, it’s also another safety feature as it protects your post from rain which leads to mold and wood rot. We offer caps in trim in a natural finish, traditional white, black, green, and brown.

Our Hassle-Free Installation Process


Step #1 - Contact US! When you need a wood fence in Houston, we’re the team for the job and having the right team is half the battle to making sure you have a long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing wood fence. Simply give us a call or complete our online form to schedule a free in-person estimate. We will come out to your property to measure and evaluate your existing fence and offer any recommendations. Once you have selected your fence style and materials, we will collect a deposit that is guaranteed to lock in your price and secure your installation date.


 Step # 2- Verify HOA Requirements: If you are a customer whose home is managed by a homeowners association (HOA), we will verify their guidelines to ensure the fence you have chosen to have us install falls within their requirements to make sure there are no unforeseeable issues. Most wood fences in Houston cannot be taller than 8 feet, and unless your property is located in the flood plains, no permit is required.


 Step # 3- Speak with neighbors: Most fences are a shared expense between you and your neighbor. However, we are happy to speak with your neighbors on your behalf and handle payment arrangements to make installing a new wood fence as hassle-free as possible.


Step # 4 Calling 811: Prior to digging any holes in your backyard, we will notify 811, so the utility companies can come to mark the yard to avoid hitting any underground wires, including water, cable, and electricity when using post-hole diggers. Unlike many other wood fence builders in Houston, we do not charge any processing fee, but we do ask that you leave your gate unlocked to allow them to access your property. Most perimeter markings occur within two business days, and our crew will start immediately afterward. The average wood fence in Houston takes only three days to construct, weather permitting.


Step # 5 -Fence Installation: One of the many things that separate us from other Katy fence companies is that our crew starts your installation within 48 hours of the ground being marked, and there is no gap or break during service. This is to ensure our customers are not left waiting between the time the post holes are dug and the time the fence is built.

Step # 6 Completion: Once we have installed your new fence, we will do a final walkthrough to ensure you are satisfied with your project and answer any questions before we send your final invoice. Once the final payment is rendered, we will issue you a warranty certificate.
