Pristine New Orleans Wood Fence - Enjoy Your Yard with Enhanced Privacy

Your yard should be a peaceful place to end your day – not an awkward space occasionally invaded by wandering pets, nosy neighbors, or contractors. Wooden fences provide the beauty of natural, stained wood in place of a view of the neighbors’ yard.

Stained installation to match your home or your garden, or painted a bright, cheerful color to brighten your mood. Whatever your tastes, we’ve got you covered. With our wood fence installation service, design options are as limitless as your imagination! Additionally, because of today’s increasingly advanced wood treatment technology, modern wood fences are more rot- and weather-resistant than ever before, requiring very little maintenance.

If you think a wood fence installation would help enclose your yard, beautify your landscape, and help you enjoy the outdoors, give us a call today!

Big Easy Iron Works New Orleans fence contractors will personally walk you through the details of installing and maintaining a wood fence, answer any questions you may have, and help you decide on the best option for your residence.

If you’re not sure if a fence is in your current budget, we offer free estimates and can customize options to accommodate most circumstances. Just give us a call!

Why install a wood fence?

Wooden Fence New Orleans - Crescent Iron WorksWhen deciding on a fencing material, not everyone chooses wood. Why should you install a wood fence over, say, an iron fence?

Many of our clients like wood fences, for a variety of reasons:

  • They appreciate the natural amber colors and earthy tones
  • They don’t want a fence that stands out too boldly – but rather one that blends in with the natural landscape
  • They appreciate the ease at which wooden fences can be transformed to a fresh new style with just a lick of paint or stain
  • They’re not interested in high-maintenance options (a wood fence, properly maintained, should only need to be painted once a year)
  • Their kids or pets would benefit from the safety of an enclosed space
  • They’re getting ready to list their home on the market (fences boost resale value)
  • The property lines between their yard and their neighbor’s yard aren’t clear
  • Their neighbors have pets or kids that sometimes wander into the yard
  • They want to increase their privacy

With our trusted wood fence services, you’ll be able to protect your pets, your kids or grandkids, and your peace of mind – while enhancing the attractiveness of your yard.

Give us a call to talk with our reputable New Orleans wood fence contractor about installing one for you.

What styles are available for wood fences?

Wood fences come in all shapes and sizes! Some things that may determine the best design for your fence include:

  • The amount of privacy you need.
    Vertical board, lattice, louver, and panel fences are best if you need privacy.
  • The amount of airflow you want.
    Vertical board blocks airflow (for wind protection) while louver allows airflow (if you’d like a breeze blowing through your yard).
  • Your personal design style.
    Picket, lattice, and post and rail are the most decorative and stylistic types, while vertical board, louver, and panel tend to be more subtle and neutral.

There are also a variety of wood species available to select from for fences in the New Orleans area. Give us a call to learn more about available materials and stains for a natural-looking fence.

Our local fence contractors you can count on in New Orleans

Wooden Fence New Orleans- Crescent Iron Works

When you’re starting a major backyard project, you don’t want to trust just any contractors.

You want someone you know who will care about your yard and fence installation, someone who will do the job right, and someone who is easy to contact if you have questions or concerns.

Our contractors don’t just install fences; we help improve our community with our work and are passionate about what we do.

Our team is:

  • Skilled: Our fence company employs professionals with the expertise necessary to install a strong, quality fence with efficiency and attention to detail. We believe this is a city that deserves the best!
  • Local: We’re your neighbors – the good ones. By rooting our fence company in the area, we committed to building up this community and improving the lives of the people here one fence at a time.

Want a wood fence contractor? – Why you should call us

Not all contractors are the same. While the location has many great contractors, not all of them are worth your trust (or your wallet).

We work to maintain the following values so that our customers can enjoy their fence design and installation process, rather than stressing about their contractors.

  • Your satisfaction is our goal. More than just a cliché for us, this sentence sums up our attitude toward our work. We’re recommended because we value your satisfaction, and communicate with you at each step to ensure things are in alignment with your expectations and needs.
  • Our mess is our responsibility. Part of being a reputable fence contractor in New Orleans includes cleaning up after ourselves – every time.
  • Your vision is our plan. When you hire a contractor to build a fence, you expect them to build something specific; that’s your vision. Anything less, and you’ll be disappointed. Our reliable contractor clarifies building plans with you to ensure you’re both on the same page, and that the end result coincides with your beginning ideas.
  • Your fence deserves our time. We don’t believe in throwing together a fence just to get a job done. Instead, our trusted wood fence contractors take their time assembling your wood fence on-site, so that boards are straight, evenly spaced, and anchored properly before they leave.
  • Our fences reflect your high standards. We know you value your home and landscape. So do we. That’s why our team uses high-quality wood and trained professionals to get the job done right the first time.
  • Our fences serve your life. Our fences serve two purposes – to enhance the appearance of your yard, reducing your view of the neighbors while blending in and complimenting the landscaping, and also providing a practical solution to problems such as security and enclosing the area.

About New Orleans

There’s a reason we made our home in New Orleans: it’s a remarkable city. We’re home to the oldest collection of living oak trees and the #2 museum in the world, as well as many local artist and musicians who give our city spirit.

Here are a few of our favorite places to go:

  • New Orleans Pharmacy Museum: From experimental medicines to voodoo and even cocktails, this museum is full of unusual antiques and scientific stories. Even if you aren’t very science minded you can take a tour with a museum guide and learn plenty about New Orleans’ contributions to (and experiments in) modern medicine.
  • NOLA Comedy Hour at the Hi-Ho Lounge: Every Sunday at 8 PM, you can catch the greatest new and seasoned comedians (as well as a great drink and meal) at the Hi-Ho Lounge.
