News From The World Of Fencing And Gate Automation World FENCE NEWS November 2018 Fence industry veteran Jef- coat Fence Co., Inc. of the greater Jackson, Miss. area recently com- pleted a residential project utilizing a new wood product on the mar- ket – Pre-Stained Red Pine – and found that it overcame a lot of the issues with other wood fencing, and, most important, made the customer happy. Jamieson Fence Supply's Pearl, Miss. branch provided the Select Cut ® ColorPro Premium Pre-Stained Fencing, manufac- tured by Biewer Lumber and dis- tributed by Pine River Group. The project utilized 250 lineal feet of 6 ft. high Select Cut ColorPro Premi- um Pre-Stained Fencing at a resi- dence in Brandon, Miss. Jefcoat Fence, a family-owned and -operated business, has been installing fences in Mississippi, Al- abama and Louisiana since 1972. The team has seen a lot of fenc- ing products come and go over the years and serves as a trusted voice in their area. Bill Johnson, the installation crew leader, commented through- out on how straight and consistent the boards were. "We never had this kind of quality with the other product we used to use," he said. "Those pickets would be one width at the top and another at the bot- tom; useless for installations." Upon completion of the job, while looking across the lengths of fencing just installed, he remarked, "With regular treated fences, cus- tomers are always asking how long until we can get it stained, and really it's hard to say. It's kind of a waiting game that depends on the weather. This [ColorPro] elim- inates that question. Being able to make customers happy on day one is a game changer." Kelsey Biewer, marketing di- rector and fence product coordina- tor for Pine River Group, expanded on the benefits of pre-staining. "As Bill said, one question we hear a lot from fencing retailers, contractors and homeowners is how soon after the wood fence is installed can it be stained? The answer varies depending on the region and climate, but can be anywhere from a couple of months to a year. For property owners wanting a rich looking, uniform wood fence from day one, this an- swer is less than ideal and has left a lot within the industry searching for better alternatives," she said. "Cedar fencing was once thought of as a good solution for those wanting a rich brown color. However, certain developments have left many questioning that. We've seen costs and lead times of Western Red Cedar (WRC), for example, skyrocket, making it dif- ficult to stay in stock and remain affordable," she noted. "As a result, imported species are being brought into the U.S. to help remedy the supply and price concerns of domestic cedar. While this has helped to some ex- tent, we've heard many express One of first installations of new factory-stained Red Pine fencing has crew singing its praises continued on page 6 The project utilized 250 lineal feet of 6 ft. high Select Cut ® ColorPro Premium Pre-Stained Fencing at a residence in Brandon, Miss.
