Franklinton Fenceowner Letter:

Apex Fence Builders did an A1 job on our fence! We needed a privacy fence for a new patio area. Kevin came in with great ideas I had never imagined and the end result was amazing. Great consultation, a free estimate, competitive pricing and the job was completed on time. I even got a follow up call to see if I was completely satisfied. I always refer Apex Fence Builders to anyone near Franklinton who asks about a fence!

Nice job guys!

In my opinion,Wood fencing is the best way to go.A well built wood fence has a natural look,can circumvent obstacles and there are many more options to chose from. After your wood fence has dried (from the treatment process) I suggest a good water sealer with a built in UV protectant and a fungicide. This will ad years to your fencing and is a cheaper option than stain. You can expect your wood fencing to last about 20 years with occasional maintenance.I know of fencing I built 18 years ago that,although weathered,Still looks great.


Wood Fencing has many options and picket sizes: 6' privacy fence with a dogear picket ,arched top,scalloped top,Pointed picket or capped with a 2x4.Also available in 3 or 4' high or 5 and 6' high and 4" pickets. These are the most common styles of wood fence and the easiest to maintain.


Custom wood fencing is what we do the most of, A custom fence can be as fancy as you like with framed in lattice on top or 2x2 spindles,decorator post caps alternating picket styles and sizes,The list is endless.I do however warn that though all our fences are very well built,Some styles of custom work with alot of mitered trim work and toe nailing is more likely to separate in time. This is what I do most,but I do want the homeowner to be aware of this so there are no surprises down the road.


All of our wood is treated southern yellow pine We generally use 4x4 post unless you specify another size (4x6 or 6x6) All post are set 22-24" in ground on 4 through 6' fences On 4' fences we use (2) 2x4 rails,5 and 6' fence has (3)rails and 8-10' fence has (4) rails


I only use 3/4 inch pickets,I have found that over the years the standard 5/8" pickets have become Very ununiform in size and I prefer not to use a product that will look bad in a year.This refers to the thickness of the picket. The styles include: Dogear,Gothic,French Gothic,Pointed,Flat,Saw tooth,or Custom Design.


We do not install pre-built panels,ALL of our fencing is stick built!


This is a great option for pet owners and is much less expensive than other styles,comes in 4,5 or 6' and will last a very long time,although not alot to look at, It is a very durable fence option and now comes in many colors other than the standard Galvanized or silver. Although the vinyl coated is nicer to look at,I have found it to be much higher in price and not as durable.


All gates are custom made on site to fit the opening,Both wood fence and chain link fencing.

Why did you become a fence contractor in the Franklinton/Triangle area?

I formed Apex Fence Builders in the early 90's after the company in Cary I was working for was sold. Having been a subcontractor for most of the Franklinton and triangle market, I thought it only wise to go out on my own. Apex Fence Builders is a full service family owned and operated Franklinton area fence contractor

What makes you different than other similar businesses in the Franklinton area?

What makes apex fence builders different is the simple fact that I AM the business. I do the sales calls, the fencing estimates and the fence installations. My motto: No salesmen, No Subcontractors, Just 20 years of quality owner built fence. We have been building high quality fencing in Raleigh , Franklinton , Youngsville and the Triangle area for years. Being a small business we understand the importance of getting a great product for a great price,not the most profitable for the company!

What do you like most about your community (Franklinton/Triangle area)?

I like the fact that I can work with homeowners to find the right fence to meet the needs and budget of each customer, something a sales person cannot always do. I also like that I am able to see the job through from start to finish, not just stop by when it's time to pick up the final payment. This has earned us an "A+" rating with the Franklinton BBB.
