We recommend waiting at least 60 days following installation to stain your wood fence. Any of the sealants made by major manufacturers are fine. We suggest you check with your neighborhood hardware or paint store for their recommendation for your particular climate.

Staining or weatherproofing your fence protects the natural oils and fibers in the wood. Without the protection of the stain/sealer, overtime the wood will turn grey as the oils are leeched out by the sun and rain.

Cedar has natural oils and acids in the wood that make it undesirable to most insects. Thus, cedar is naturally insect and rot resistant. Cedar is also non-toxic and safe to handle. It’s perfectly suited to ground contact applications without the use of chemicals. Untreated, white cedar generally lasts 15 to 25 years and will weather gracefully to a silvery gray. Cedar also warps less than spruce or pine fences.

You must first determine what the job of your fence will be. For instance, is it simply for decorative purposes or to add value to your home? Or is it for privacy, security or pool safety? Then you can explore your options on fences that will accomplish that job. Our sales team will review the different options available and assist you in choosing the best type of fence to meet your needs.

You can’t go wrong with PVC or Vinyl fencing. Vinyl fencing is virtually maintenance free. Vinyl fences are durable, long lasting, easy to clean and environmentally friendly. You’ll never have to worry about staining, rotting, warping, termites, corrosion or rust.

Chain link fences also require very little maintenance. Chain link is durable, economical and easy to install.

Before starting work, we will contact Dig Safely NY. In turn, they will contact their facility operating members. Each member will send someone out to locate and mark their underground lines and wires on the property.

The most important element in maximizing the life of your fence is quality installation. Staining or weather proofing your wood fence annually with a quality sealer will help to increase the life of your fence.

Siena Fence offers a 2 year workmanship warranty on installation. Materials are covered by the individual manufacturer’s warranties. A copy of our warranty will be sent with your order.

Your finish coat will be determined by the look you want to achieve as well as the type of wood you use. There are three options in finishing treatments: paint, stain and waterproofing sealer. However, we do not recommend painting your fence.

Stain provides a durable finish coat while still allowing the look and texture of the wood to come through. Semitransparent stains are best on new wood and give an even appearance and hint of color while allowing the grain to show through. Heavy or solid-colored stains cover the grain but keep the texture. They’re ideal for older wood that needs a face-lift.

Waterproofing sealer or repellent is the choice for woods such as spruce, birch, hickory, red oak and poplar that are not resistant to decay and exposure to weather. The sealer/repellent will help prevent rain and moisture from soaking into the wood. These need to be applied annually to preserve the natural wood color.

While it’s not rocket science to set a post into the ground, careful consideration should be given to this phase of the work. Most manufacturers of post-setting materials suggest a hole in diameter 3 times that of the post. This is a good rule for secure foundations. Other factors to consider are rocks, roots, and the occasional pocket of sandy or loose soil. All of these require special techniques if the desired result is a secure and hidden installation that matches the craftsmanship of the above-ground finished product.

Ideally no, but then all sorts of things would be coming and going from your yard. Leaving a gap at the bottom keeps your fence from trapping soil and water and thus from rotting the fence bottom. And if you ask your termite control company, they will tell you this is the only sure way to keep termites out of the fence.

At a minimum, your pool or spa must comply, with all applicable federal, state, and local laws, ordinances, rules, and regulations. In most cases, a pool or spa, or the area where it is located, must be completely surrounded by an intact fence or barrier at least 48 inches high; gates must be self-closing and self-latching; one or more pool alarms, door alarms and/or gate alarms may be required; and the pool or spa must have anti-entrapment drain covers that are compliant with the Pool and Spa Safety Act, the State Uniform Code, the New York City Building Code, and any applicable local law, ordinance, rule or regulation.
