Building a new fence on your property can add character as well as security for your home, family, livestock, and pets. Among the many different types of fencing available, fence pickets are a popular option for residential property because of ease of installation, cost, safety for kids and pets, and enhancing curb appeal.
When deciding what type of fence to build for your home, you have several fencing options to choose from including picket, privacy, metal, chain link, and split rail.
Picket fencing is the most popular type of residential fencing because it offers the best of all worlds. They are decorative, add security for your family, and denote a clear boundary line between you and your neighbors. Fence pickets are the perfect choice for an attractive, secure perimeter around your property. Plus, there is great versatility when it comes to designing picket fences.
You can place your fence pickets close together to create a solid fence. You can opt for a classic look, with a picket’s-width space between each picket to allow visibility and airflow. A more contemporary look can be achieved with staggered heights and spacing. Pickets placed in arches or scallops and hidden posts or exposed posts with or without caps all create a different look.
There are three common fence picket styles based on the look of the top of the picket. Each type of fence board lends a different character to your fence.
In addition to the style of picket, there are also a variety of picket materials to choose from including wood, vinyl, and wrought iron. The most common is wood and the only fence picket material McCoy’s carries. Wood provides that classic look and feel for residential yards and McCoy’s sells imported cedar, treated, and Western Red Cedar fence picket options. Our cedar options are naturally insect- and decay-resistant while our treated wood fence picket options protect against rot, fungal decay, and termites.

We also carry 2 different height options at 6’ and 8’ giving you flexibility with your own design ideas, your HOA’s rules, and/or city ordinances.
