Everything You Need To Know About Picket Fence Panels

September 26, 20223 min read

Across America, white picket fence panels can be seen gracing the front yards of homes. They are a symbol of classic, suburban living. While they may seem like a simple addition to your home, there is more to picking the right fence panel than you might think. In this blog post, we'll discuss everything you need to know about white picket fence panels so you can decide if they are the right choice for your home.
We'll talk about the different types of fencing available and what factors you need to consider before purchasing. We'll also provide tips on caring for your new fence panel so that it lasts for years to come.
So, whether you're looking to add a classic touch to your home or need a new fence panel, read on for everything you need to know about white picket fence panels.
Two main types of white picket fence panels are

  • Wood

  • Vinyl

Wood is the traditional option and can be stained or painted to match your home. Vinyl is a more modern option and comes in a variety of colors. It's also easy to clean and maintain.
When deciding which type of fence panel is right for you, consider your budget and the amount of maintenance you're willing to do. Wood panels require more upkeep than vinyl but are also generally more affordable.
No matter which type of fence panel you choose, there are a few factors you need to consider before making your purchase.

  • Measure the area where you want to install the fence. It will help you determine how many panels you need to buy. 

  • Consider the height of the fence. You'll want to ensure the fence is tall enough to deter intruders but not so tall that it blocks your view.

  • Consider the style of the fence. There are various picket styles to choose from, so take some time to browse your options before deciding. Once you've found the perfect fence panel for your home, it's time to install it.

Start digging holes for the posts if you're installing a wood fence panel. The depth of the hole will depend on your local building code. Once the holes are dug, insert the posts, and fill them with concrete. Then, attach the pickets to the rails using nails or screws.
Installing a vinyl fence panel is like installing a wood panel, but there are a few key differences. First, you'll need to attach the rails to the posts using brackets. Then, insert the pickets into the rails. Most vinyl fence panels come with pre-drilled holes, so you can easily attach them to the rails.
Once your fence panel is installed, it's essential to take care of it so that it lasts for years. Suppose you have a wood fence, stain or paint it every few years to protect it from the elements. Hose them down with soap and water for vinyl fences when they get dirty.
With some care, your white picket fence panel will be a beautiful addition to your home for years to come. Thanks for reading! We hope this blog post has helped you learn everything you need to know about white picket fence panels.
