Trim boards are the crown molding for your new fence. The ultimate in beauty is the double step trim. There are several installation types to choose from; 1″ x 4″ is the most common use of trim board; however, a 1″ x 2″ may also be used either as a single trim board or in combination with the 1″ x 4″ trim board to give a stair-step look to the trim. You should choose a trim board wood species that matches your fence type.
Installation of the tap cap will add the finishing touch to your new fence. A top cap adds beauty to any wood fence and will set your fence apart from the others. Most top caps will be either a 2″ x 6″ or a 2″ x 8″ and can be either cedar or treated pine, depending on your fence type. Although, we honestly do not recommend pine top cap as it tends to twist and warp in the Texas heat and humidity. Please keep in mind that this is an upgrade and can significantly increase cost.
