Shadowbox Fence Installation

Families value their privacy but some also enjoy the look of the landscape or are looking for a more stylized option than a privacy fence. Shadowbox fences are the answer to these wants and needs. A shadowbox fence is a semi-privacy fence that uses panels that alternate on both sides of the railing. This creates a unique contrasting pattern of panels that results in an opaque wall from a distance and enough room to see on the outside if you are close-up. This helps satisfy the curious minds of children and pets while ensuring privacy for the family. When it comes to shadowbox fence installation, no one does it better than the professional fencing specialists at A&O Texas Solutions.

Shadowbox Fence Durability

Shadowbox fences boast incredible lifespans that surpass that of other wood fencing. This is due to the intelligent design of the panel spacing. By alternating the panels, there are small gaps in between both panels that result in a better distribution of weight, more breathing room for the wood, and each individual panel has extra support from its alternate panel. Unlike other fencing types, shadowbox fencing helps keep your yard cool by allowing for continuous airflow. This ability to let air through also aids in protection against straining on the panels and the posts during high winds.

Railing Options

All of our fences are reinforced with 2X4 boards. These boards can either be pressure treated or made from western red cedar. These two options boast beauty and durability.

Reinforced by Metal Posts

With our metal fence posts, sagging and falling posts are a thing of the past. Our metal fence posts come in width gauges from 13-16. Our specialists recommend the 13-gauge metal fence posts as they provide the most durability and thickness. If you are looking for added protection, we highly recommend our square metal posts. These posts come in 13-gauge heavy-duty steel and can withstand inclement weather, sagging, and impact damage.  With our metal fence posts, your shadowbox fence can last you 10 or more years.

The Customizability of Shadowbox Fencing

Shadowbox fencing sets itself apart from other types of fencing due to the increased visual interest. Not only does this help boost your home’s curb appeal and value, but it also allows you to show off your unique individual style. A&O Texas Solutions has plenty of material for you to pick from, such as the type of wood, the color, and stain. In addition, the top of the individual panels can also be customized. Here are the most popular styles of our shadowbox fences. 

  • Straight. Straight panels are the classic look for shadowbox fencing. They look great with any home and provide a clean solid look from a distance.
  • Dog Ear. Dog ears look like a hexagon on the top and straighten out towards the bottom.

Shadowbox Fencing Upgrade Options

If you are looking for a way to add some extra flair to your shadowbox fence, investing in these upgrade options may be right for you:

  • Capping. Increased durability by protecting the tops of the panels from water damage due to rain.
  • Baseboard. Baseboards help protect your fence from damage due to animals trying to dig underneath or from excess moisture collecting underneath your fence.
  • Trim. Adding a trim helps add an extra layer of visual aesthetics to your fence, helping accentuate the beauty of your home and yard.
