If you’ve ever installed a privacy fence, you know how tedious it can be to attach one picket after another. And it’s even worse with warped or twisted wood.

So, the folks at Alta Forest Products have introduced fence material that addresses those issues and more with their Premium Treated Dog-Ear Fence Pickets.

Easy Installation

Most fence pickets are only three to five inches wide. Alta’s Premium Treated Dog-Ear Fence Picket, however, is a full six inches wide, allowing for faster installation and requiring fewer fasteners and labor. 

It’s also a full 3/4-inch thick, which combined with the addition of a wood-stabilizing additive, makes this product extremely stable and minimizes the amount of warp and twist typically seen in other products. 

These fence pickets’ ends are sealed to resist splits and cracks, for a stronger, longer-lasting fence. 

Alta’s Premium Treated pickets come with a 10-year warranty that protects against rot, decay and wood-ingesting insects, including Formosan termites.

Lasting Beauty

Each picket is individually treated and stained — saving you time and money. Plus, your completed fence will have a more uniform appearance. 

These pickets also come with a two-year color-fade warranty, so your fence will stay looking new longer. 

More Details

Alta Premium Treated pickets are non-toxic, so there are no special handling or disposal requirements, making this the safe alternative to cedar and pressure-treated wood pickets.
