Wood Fence Materials
Cedar fences are durable and have an elegant look. Cedar is more uniform looking than other wood fence materials, has a tight grain, and does not warp or shrink. The hue will vary depending on whether the fence is white cedar or red cedar. Cedar is a great choice for fencing because it is naturally resistant to insects and decay. In other words, there is no treatment with chemicals, yet the fence is still bug resistant. Cedar naturally weathers to silvery gray; however you can help extend the natural hue by using sealants on a regular basis.
Pressure treated fences, like cedar, is a good option for durability. Unlike cedar, pressure treated fencing is treated, and such treatment provides resistance to rot and decay. Pressure treated is a solid choice for longevity and durability, and has stood the test of time as a favorite fencing choice.
Spruce is the most affordable option for wooden fencing. Being a more budgetary option, spruce fencing may not last as long as a cedar or pressure treated fence. Spruce will weather to a darker gray than cedar. Using a sealant or staining your fence can add a few years to a Spruce fence’s lifespan.
