Frequently Asked Questions About Fences
There are many different wooden fencing styles available for your property in Atlanta. However, every wooden fence requires three basic fencing materials during its installation. They require posts, rails, and panels. Posts are vertical pieces of wood that are placed deep into the ground to provide support for other fencing components required. They can be of varying heights based on the wooden fencing style you have selected. Rails connect one fencing component to another. They are horizontal and run parallel to the ground. Rails are also the fencing component that panels are attached to. Panels on a wooden fence include wood for a lattice design or a picket fence look.
Aluminum fencing is very popular in the Atlanta area. Aluminum fencing materials don't rust as easily as other fencing materials such as wrought-iron. Also, aluminum fencing is incredibly durable. With some gauges, it's even more weather-resistant than vinyl fencing materials. Aluminum fencing materials can be powder coated to add even extra weatherproofing strength. This type of fencing is very beautiful and functional. It can be used with our rail fencing and other custom fencing styles.
Vinyl fencing materials are extremely weather-resistant. They don't ever fade or crack over time. Vinyl fencing is also virtually maintenance free. It's safe for the environment because it's made from high-quality PVC materials. The manufacturing process for PVC doesn't require any usage of toxic, harmful chemicals. Vinyl fencing is sometimes used as an alternative to wooden fencing because it doesn't splinter. This makes it perfect for backyards and play areas where children may be present.
We believe that our wooden privacy fences provide the greatest levels of privacy and security for residential, commercial, or industrial properties in the Atlanta area. Our wooden privacy fences have stockade style panels. Stockade wooden fencing provides zero space between each board. This means that nobody from outside of your property will be able to look in. Also, our wooden privacy fences are built to be tall so that it's difficult for anyone to peek or climb over them.
Prior to having a new fence installed on your property, you should have a land surveyor come out and determine what your actual boundary lines are. They will help you to make sure that your new fence lies within your property. You should also have a utility worker come to your property to mark spots on the ground where buried wires, cables, and pipes may be. Typically, this service is free of charge to residents.

We recently put in a new pool in our backyard and needed to have a fence installed around the perimeter of our property. Mauldin & Cook Fence told me about what fencing options I had and then helped to decide on the right one. We couldn't be happier with our new privacy fencing. It's made of beautiful cedar and was installed in a matter of days.
