Privacy is a topmost concern for commercial businesses with outside storage. One of the more attractive types of privacy fencing is made from cedar or redwood planks ranging from 4” to 6” in width. Wood privacy fencing constructed using any materials other than cedar or redwood would be discouraged in Fort Collins. Privacy fencing is available in a variety of thicknesses from 1/2” to 7/8”. The thicker the material used to construct the privacy fence directly impacts the overall strength of the fence from environmental factors such as bowing and warping. Wood privacy fences can be erected using zinc coated screws as well as ring shanked nails. Certain privacy fence options are fast becoming the product of choice amongst government agencies on the state and federal level throughout the United States.
