We were very happy with the process and final product from Big Jerry's fencing. Their team worked quickly to give us an estimate and help us start the process. We only had to wait a few weeks for fencing material to be delivered - the supplies actually came earlier than expected. The crew that installed the fence was on time and very professional. We have received great customer service throughout the entire process.

Big Jerry’s completed our new wood fence today and we could not be more pleased! The online estimate process was great, such a time saver. Big Jerry’s quote came in at more than a thousand dollars lower than several competitors, and given their great reputation AND their lifetime guarantee on workmanship (versus 1 year offered by everyone else), the choice was simple. Their online team was always prompt and helpful. The crew that did our job, Edwin and Abel, were outstanding— professional, courteous, reliable, and really hustled to get the job done. We couldn’t be more pleased!

he best way to get an estimate is using their online tool which is very accurate, they quickly respond to emails because they are working from home due to COVID, so don’t be disappointed if you can’t reach them via phone. If you don’t have your property marked they provide a contact for a professional surveyor (not expensive). They also coordinate to get all utilities marked prior to installation. Installation was flawless, clean and professional.

Wood Fence Styles in the Nashville, TN Area

Dog Ear Privacy Fence Styles

The term “dog-ear” comes from the shape of the top of the boards. Instead of a flat top, the boards have the corners sawed off, providing a “dog-ear” shape you see in many wooden fence styles.

Dog ear stockade wood fences are the most common typical wood fence found in residential neighborhoods.

Consider board on board for added privacy or shadowbox for a more breathable “double-sided fence” look.

Shadowbox Fence

What is a shadowbox fence? Shadowbox fencing is a wood fence design where every other vertical picket is attached to the opposite side of the fence rails, creating a gap in the fence. This gap allows for better breathability and wind movement in your yard. Shadowbox design is ideal for neighbors sharing the cost of a fence project to achieve a similar look on both sides of the fence.

Board on Board Privacy Fence

The board-on-board wood fence is ideal for privacy and longevity. In a traditional privacy fence, wood shrinkage causes gaps to form between the boards that compromise the fence’s ability to offer true privacy. That shrinkage problem is solved by the board-on-board design because the overlapping layer of pickets compensates for the eventual shrinkage.

Although most fence styles can be installed directly next to another fence, it is uncommon because it is not the most aesthetic option.

Depending on fence style, additional spacing may be required between fences. Additionally, the direction the fence faces may be impacted by a neighboring fence as our installers will require approximately 2ft of clearance when installing wood fence pickets on the outside of the fence.

Most of our Big Jerry’s Fencing locations install all posts set in concrete, however, due to the moisture in the ground in some areas, locations may vary with the method of installation. Please be sure to clarify this with your local Big Jerry’s Fencing office.

All pressure-treated lumber will be wet when it arrives on your job site. As the lumber dries, it will shrink a little. This shrinkage is particularly noticeable in the gaps between pickets. Pickets on privacy fences spaced 0” apart during construction; can be expected to shrink to result in a 1/8” to 1/4″ gap between each picket. Let us know if you would like to know about fence styles that offer total privacy.

When the property line is obstructed by trees or other vegetation, you can either clear them or install fencing on your side of the property line. You cannot install fencing on your neighbors property.

Yes, Big Jerry’s Fencing offers repairs on fences installed by us or a competitor. Depending on the situation, we may determine that a repair is not practical, and a replacement fence is needed.

This will vary by location and is dependent on the fence type, as some fence styles allow for a quicker installation than others. Most of our crews can install approximately 150ft of vinyl & wood fences per day and upwards of 300+ feet per day for aluminum and chain link. If you have a specific timing need, please discuss this with your local Big Jerry’s Fencing representative.

Most roots are not a problem and can be handled. Larger roots can require additional tools for digging/cutting, or we may be able to span over the root system with a longer section. However, an additional fee may be charged if a jackhammer or other additional power tools are required for extra hard soil or rocks.

We ask that you meet the crew on the morning of the install to go over final details, but you do not need to remain at home throughout the installation. When possible, a final walkthrough at the time of completion is preferred so that we can ensure that you are 100% satisfied with the final product. 

It is industry standard to leave small spacing at the bottom of the fence to allow for drainage. We can install your fence as close to the ground as possible. However, in cases where it may affect the lay of the fence line, you may not want the fence installed too close in order to have the most aesthetically pleasing fence.

Wooden fences have a 10 to 20-year life expectancy.
