Wood

Wood fences are the most popular type of fence, and they make up the majority of the work we do. Fences made from wood are environmentally friendly, easy to repair, and relatively cheap compared to their counterparts. They do need more care than those made of aluminum or vinyl, including staining and clear coats, but their price point keeps them at the head of the pack. It’s no wonder that wood fences dominate neighborhoods and urban settings.

Vinyl

A vinyl fence is constructed from a type of plastic called PVC (polyvinyl chloride). This PVC material is combined with certain chemical components to give the fence outstanding strength, long-term durability, and protection from the elements. Since the fence is manufactured from PVC or similar materials, vinyl fences come in a staggering array of colors. Vinyl can be a low-maintenance option when compared to other fencing materials, but the initial costs are high.

Wrought Iron

These fences are constructed of wrought iron, which is an extremely durable material. Wrought iron fences are able to hold up to a lot of pressure while still needing minimal upkeep. Iron will rust, so any portions of the fence that are scraped or scuffed should be primed and painted quickly. Although they don’t provide much in the way of privacy, their attractive look and longevity make them a good selection for numerous applications.

Chain Link

Chain link fencing is a great option to prevent pets, children, animals and unwelcome visitors from entering a yard, but it is generally not thought of as attractive like wrought iron or some wood fences. This type of fence is comprised of galvanized steel posts that sit at regular intervals, rails that typically run on the top and sometimes bottom of the fence, and mesh fencing. Installing is not a hard job, but the parts are all fairly heavy and not easy to get into place. Since chain-link fences can be tough to install, most homeowners will opt to hire a professional fence company. On its own, chain link does not provide much privacy, but homeowners can add privacy slats made from aluminum or plastic if desired. These slats are interwoven into the chain link to reduce the line-of-site.

Split-Rail Fences

Chances are, whether you know it or not, you’ve come across a split-rail fence at some point. Commonly found in rural areas, these fences are constructed from simple rough-sawn planks or split lumber (hence the name “split rail”), and their design has roots dating back to early colonial times. Displaying a distinctive rustic and straightforward appearance, split-rail fences offer a natural and beautiful option for those seeking an unassuming fencing solution.

Do I need a permit to build a fence in Gladewater?

You may need a permit before you build a fence in the city limits of Gladewater. If the fence is new and over 6 feet tall, or if a fence over 6 feet tall is being replaced, you will need to apply for a permit before construction can start. Check with the city before you start any large projects.

About Gladewater

Gladewater, Texas, is a charming city located in Gregg and Upshur counties in the northeastern part of Texas. With a rich history and a population of approximately 6,400 people, Gladewater has played a significant role in the development of the East Texas region.

The history of Gladewater as we know it started way back in the early 1800s, when the area was inhabited by several Native American tribes, including the Caddo and the Cherokee. Sometime in the mid-1800’s, the first European settlers arrived. The settlers set up homesteads and started farming due to the abundance of natural resources and the fertile soil on which they could farm. In the 1870’s, the Texas and Pacific Railway came through the area and brought more settlers. The railway also brought an easy way to trade supplies, which helped the community grow. In 1873, the city was officially incorporated.

As with most of the communities in East Texas, once oil was found, Gladewater experienced significant economic boosts in the early 1900s. In the early 1930s, the east Texas oil boom began and turned Gladewater into a thriving oil boom town. More businesses were set up and more residents moved into the area. The population climbed higher as more work was available, and investors flocked to the area.

Today, Gladewater retains its small-town charm and is proud of its historical legacy. Visitors can explore the downtown area with its antique shops, historical buildings, and museums that highlight the town’s past. The Gladewater Museum, for example, provides a glimpse into the city’s history and the impact of the oil boom.
