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.

Wood Fence Design

Wood sections can be built to be solid, spaced, or board on board. That offers a variety of wood fencing options for your installation needs. Solid fences offer privacy and can reduce noise in your yard. They are great if you are trying to keep your yard quiet and serene. Spaced, picket-style fences are visually appealing and allow plenty of airflow through the yard. These give added curb appeal to your property, while allowing you to maintain an open-space feel.

Board on board fencing, also known as shadow box fences, offer the best of both worlds. These fences offer privacy, but still allow air to flow through your yard. They are a great option for homes with pets or if your yard lacks shade. Board on board fences are also easily rackable, meaning they can be installed on a hill, without leaving large gaps underneath the fence. Additionally, board on board fences are visually appealing on both sides of the fence. Solid and picket fences have rails on one side, which must face into your yard. With board on board fencing, the rails are between the pickets, giving it a beautiful look from both sides.

At Carl’s, we pride ourselves on our quality, our customer service, and our affordability. We use high-quality materials and best installation practices, so you know your fence will last. We also offer affordable pricing and financing so that you can pay overtime. So, even if you are on the fence about getting a fence, give us a call and schedule your free estimate.
