To fully understand installation, service and repair of a picket fence, it is a good idea to understand exactly what a picket fence is and what it does. A picket is an upright board that is attached to horizontal cross pieces, that are fastened to posts. The advantage of a picket fence is that parts of it can be replaced or refurbished without having to replace the whole fence. Its parts can be made from a variety of materials, including plastic pickets, cross-pieces and posts made from recycled vinyl. The usual material is wood that either has a natural weather resistance, such as cedar or redwood, or that has been treated for outdoor use. The wood can be left its natural color, cedar and redwood look great for this, or can be painted. The paint could be the traditional white, or it could be any color you desire. White was a common color for fences because it could be made from locally available materials such as lime or milk. That might sound crazy, but milk paint is amazing stuff and was used on many antique materials. It is still used to restore antiques or to give a traditional look to modern imitations.
