Wooden Fences and Wood Gates
Venice, Marina Del Rey, Los Angeles, Brentwood
This fence and gate page is focused on the use of the Common Redwood. This type of wood is a lower cost here in Los Angeles compared to the fence boards that we use on the designer fences and HD fencing. This wood is known as clear redwood. "Clear" refers to having no knots, and it is also a much smoother, higher end finish because this wood is also dry.
Common redwood is generally on the "greener" side of fencing materials. That is the main reason that it saves you money, because "green" refers to wet wood. When it dries out this wood can split, crack etc. It also shrinks to provide 1/8" - 1/4" gaps between the fence boards, even if they were touching when it was assembled. Our midrange fences and gates still contain all of the professional craftsmanship that we are known for, as well as the finishing details even when this common redwood is used.
Note: the fences on this page will save you 25%-35% compared to the fences on the designer fence category.
One of our past clients in Brentwood, California wanted a unique color for his fence. Because the plan was to cover the fence with all of the trees, this color was something we hadn't done before on any prior wood fence. I gotta say when the wood stain came out of the can we were a little surprised by the magnitude of the green. However, like a an article of clothing, this color looks way better on the fence than expected. We love the collaboration with our clients to provide us with the experience to share with all of our future fence clients. Brentwood, West LA, Westwood and Bel Air are packed with many types of vegetation that could work well with this fence color.
