So, you’re thinking about replacing your wood fence and changing it to a horizontal fence. What you have now is a traditional tall privacy fence; the pickets are graying vertical boards, and the boards are warped. Do I repair the fence or install a new fence? Researching fence companies and styles online and you stumble across a horizontal fence. You fall in love with the look! Is this the new style of fence we are looking for? Can we have a horizontal fence installed in our neighborhood? These are common questions the Fence Makeovers team gets routinely.
For sake of argument, it may be best to choose a new fence installation. In recent years a different style of fence has been emerging and that is a horizontal fence. This means that the boards on the fence are installed horizontal whereas the traditional installation is vertical.

What Is The Cost Of A Horizontal Fence?
The last question on installing a horizontal fence is “How much does it cost?” A horizontal style fence will cost more than a traditional fence however the quality of cedar will be higher in order for the fence to last a long time and not warp!
The other item that a homeowner will need to investigate is the Homeowners Association (HOA). There may be ordinances not allowing the direction of the wood for the fence. Check with your city as well. Nothing like getting your hopes up and the city or HOA telling you no.
