When selecting a fence for your property, there are many styles and materials to consider. Vinyl, aluminum, and chain link are popular choices, but traditional wood is still the leading, most affordable fencing available. Wood Fencing Adds Natural Beauty!
Wood Fencing Adds Natural Beauty
If you want a fence to blend in with natural surroundings, wood is the choice for you. Not only does it offer more privacy than a chain-link fence, but it can be painted or stained for a customized look or allowed to age and season naturally.
Wood is relatively easy to repair and maintain or repaint if you want a new look. Wood fencing adds value to your home, whether installed for privacy, the safety of children and pets or to add curb appeal.
Cedar has a tight grain, which makes it more durable than most other woods and less likely to crack or splinter with nails or screws. Red cedar has a naturally vibrant color, so there’s no need for paint or stain. Cedar is also rich in oils that protect the wood from warping and decay in damp weather and repels insects from damaging the wood. Although cedar is generally more expensive than other wood types, your cedar fence will last at least twice as long.
If the color or scent of cedar is not for you, then spruce is another option. Since spruce is light in color, you can easily paint it for a distinctive, personal look. Spruce is not as durable as cedar, but it is more affordable. Using a stain or sealant is recommended to increase longevity.
