Ring Shank Galvanized
Pressure Treated Lumber
We Never Take A Penny Down! Payment On Satisfied Completion.
At Los Gatos Fence Company we use .ring shank-ed galvanized nails, which are 75% larger than 95% of the competition, and prevent streaks and unsightly stains, and add extra protection from the natural acids in wood. They also have a screw like shape on the ends of the nails which makes it very hard to pull or fall out. Our fences are also built with Douglas Fir - NOT Hemlock Fir) inferior) pressure treated .40 ACQ posts and kick boards - the best available. Our Redwood on all standard fences is Select (Premium) Construction Common Grade, unless Heart wood is requested. Our fence boards are full nominal 1" boards - a full 3/4" actual size, not 11/16 as the majority of all the other local contractors use. We will not install cracked or waned fence boards. We focus on the details that make your fence investment last for years and years and the quality of craftsmanship can not be matched. Your fence will look more like a piece of furniture with perfect cuts and the lines will be as strait as an arrow.
Los Gatos Fence Company always makes sure to crown the concrete around every post! And at no extra charge! You will find most other contractors will charge an additional fee to do this, and not even mention it because of the extra labor cost. Crowning or mounding the concrete ensures that the water from rain or sprinklers runs off and doesn't rot your fence posts. At Los Gatos Fence Company we use pressure treated posts that are milled form Douglas fir. We have found these posts generally last longer with less twisting or bowing than Hemlock Fir and are more water resistant. However, even the best posts will rot if they are in contact with water for a long period of time. So by taking the extra time to crown the concrete around your posts, your fence could last twice as long.
