Post & Dowel | Pressure-Treated Fence
Post & Dowel Fence
A Post and Dowel fence, also known as Western Rail Fencing, is identified by its round posts and round rails. Manufactured from pine logs, Post and Dowel fencing has been chemically pressure treated to help prevent rot and decay. This treating process is what accounts for the greenish hue that Post and Dowel fences are known for. Post and Dowel fences are relatively easy to install and maintain, and even hold some resistance to things like rot or moisture. These fences provide a clean look while strating away from a stereotypical or conservative design- giving you a unique project unlike other homes in your neighborhood.
This classic style is also renowned by homeowners for its uniformity. Which sometimes makes it a more preferable selection than our other fence options, depending on your desired style and look. With its long lifespan, a post and dowel fence will keep your yard looking great for years to come.
