Protect Your FenceStain and Seal

Staining your wood fence with high-quality stain and seal products acts as a barrier, shielding the wood from rain, UV rays, and extreme temperatures. This helps prevent moisture penetration and minimizes the risk of warping, cracking, or rotting.

The pros at The Fence Company are dedicated to delivering high-quality wood fences by offering our customers professional staining services. Contact Us today to discuss your wood fencing needs, and let us help you create a fence that enhances the beauty and value of your property.

Wood Fence FAQs

Yes! We are a leading custom wood fencing contractor across the entire Salt Lake City area.

Our crews are specially trained in the latest wood fence installation techniques, ensuring that your fence will look great, function properly, and hold up to the harsh weather typical of Salt Lake City.

Pricing on all fencing materials can fluctuate, but generally speaking, the up-front cost of wood fencing is usually lower than other types of fencing. Over time, wood fencing requires regular maintenance, including sealing, staining, or painting, so remember to consider these expenses when calculating the price of your wood fence.

Proper care and maintenance of your wood fence will extend its life for many additional years. Ultimately, the decision is yours to make, but we recommend using a high-quality stain or sealer to protect your investment.

The harsh weather conditions in Salt Lake City can severely impact wood fences that are not properly cared for. Speak with one of our fence experts to learn more about the specific steps you can take for your particular situation.

Wood fencing is a popular option for homes and businesses in the Salt Lake City region. Wood fences that are properly built and maintained are strong enough to withstand the weather conditions across Salt Lake City.

When cared for, wood fences will look great and last for years!

Prices on wood fences are highly dependent on the amount of fencing you need as well as the exact style, height, and options you select.

We provide wood fencing quotes for free! E-mail us or give us a call and our team of friendly, experienced staff will be glad to walk you through the process and plan a consultation.


We encourage you to speak with one of our fence experts before focusing solely on price! There are cheaper, very poor quality wood fence brands available that are not nearly as durable, will fade, will often warp, and have limited, if any, warranty. We don't use them.

There are also very inexperienced and unprofessional fence installers who continually cut corners and don't stand behind their work, regardless of what their so-called warranty says.

Wood fences must stand up to the physical demands of the Salt Lake City weather, and physical abuse from falling branches, landscapers, neighbors, animals, and more.

Shopping for the cheapest fence is generally not the best way to choose the fence you want to protect and beautify your home and the people you care about.

Wood fences typically have no warranty on materials, but they usually have a workmanship warranty.

However, there are specific options you can choose that may come with warranties, even on the materials! Speak with one of our fence experts to learn the details of the wood fence options you are considering.

Whether you need a residential wood fence or a commercial-grade wood fence, it generally only takes a few days maximum for one of our fence experts to get to most areas of Salt Lake City, walk your property, and give you a detailed estimate of your wood fence project.

You can certainly call us to get even faster answers from our fence experts!

Once you approve the estimate, we can often install wood fences in most of Salt Lake City within 1 to 3 weeks, but please check with our office about your specific project. At times throughout the year, that timeframe may be less, or it may be longer.

Other things can delay the start of a fencing project. If you choose custom wood fence material, style, color, or options that must be specially ordered, your fence installation will often be delayed. Like nearly every fencing contractor in the Salt Lake City, we do not stock a large amount of custom wood fencing options. These materials come from various manufacturers, and shipping and delivery times are beyond our control. We will help you identify, in advance, any of your choices that are likely to cause these additional delays, and we will offer alternatives whenever possible.

Make it Easy on Yourself!

Don't stress yourself! Our fence experts will gladly come to your property and take all necessary measurements! We are a full-service fence company that specializes in wood fence installation. You do not need to work hard to get a great new fence.

DIY Fence Estimate

If you'd like to get a rough idea on your own about how much fencing you will need, follow these easy steps:

  • If you know the dimensions of the area you wish to enclose, add the length of each side together. Use a tape measure. Rough estimates are fine; there is no need to be too precise.
  • Be sure to subtract the length of any structures, like a house, a barn, or a shed, that will serve as part of the barrier. This will give you a rough estimate of how much fencing you need.
  • For even greater accuracy, subtract the length of any gates you will be using. Often, gates are priced much differently than fencing. For this reason, we recommend that property owners looking to develop their fence estimate list the gates separately. A standard walk gate is approximately 4 feet wide, and a standard single driveway gate is closer to 10 feet wide.


Wood fencing is often priced and sold by SECTIONS, not by linear feet! Even when the linear footage is included specifically in price estimates, the total number of sections is a factor in this pricing. So, price per linear foot is only a rough estimate and rarely represents the actual cost of the finished fence!

If you would love to explore and explain this difference, you can speak with one of our fence experts. Be aware that price per linear foot is a ploy many unprofessional fence installers in the Salt Lake City area use!

Fence placement is ultimately the responsibility of you, the customer. Moving a fence after installation can be costly, so getting a survey to be safe is never a bad idea. In many cases, the property lines are clear and well-marked and installing your fence can be done without an official survey. However, some municipalities do require it, so be sure to check!

Many small fence companies in Salt Lake City install wood fencing. Very few specifically train their teams on the best installation techniques and practices for wood fencing. Unfortunately, this means that your wood fence is probably not installed as securely as it could be, which ultimately can reduce the quality and lifespan of your wood fence.

Using inferior installation techniques and improper tools can also damage the wood fence during installation, which may have the unfortunate impact of voiding the manufacturer's warranty since you chose an unqualified contractor not approved by the manufacturer.

Here are some of the main pitfalls of working with non-professionals:

  1. The Wood Fence Warranty is Void
    If the individual or company that installed your wood fence is no longer in business, the workmanship warranty on the fence and the gates is worthless.

  2. The Fence Almost Certainly Won't Last As Long
    As a professional fence company, our team of installers undergoes rigorous training and constant professional supervision. Our dedication to improving our skills, knowledge of the best fencing materials, and best wood fence installation techniques maximizes the strength and life of your fence. Companies that install wood fences as something they do "on the side" usually have no idea how much they don't know about wood fencing or what is best for you and your property.

  3. Your Property May be at Risk
    Installing wood fences in the Salt Lake City area can be risky. Sudden, harsh weather during the fence installation can blow materials and damage your home. We've seen concrete splatter onto cars or drip down beautiful driveways or walkways as buckets of wet concrete are transported. Deep tire tracks sinking into your grass is another common issue. The secondary damage to homes and yards is common when untrained labor installs the fence.

    Additionally, you are at risk if anyone gets hurt on your property while they are working. If you hire an unlicensed or uninsured contractor, you may be liable and your homeowner's insurance may deny payment!

At first glance, hiring a novice to install your wood fence may save you a few dollars, but in the long run, it is almost certainly a price you cannot afford to pay!
