Benefits of Cedar Fencing

Cedar Fence

If quality, appearance and longevity are what you value most in a wood fence, you cannot do better than cedar fence styles. Western red cedar contains natural oils that help make the wood resistant to decay and insect attack, increasing its durability and strength without the use of chemical treatments. Western red cedar is highly stable to the point where there is minimal shrinkage when used to build a fence, meaning your fence will stay straight and sturdy for the long haul.

Western red cedar is also resistant to stain and rotting and offers a truly unique grain and smooth texture that ages gracefully over the years. However, if you want to apply colors other than the cedar’s natural tones, you can easily stain and seal this DIY cedar fence. Homeowners concerned about their carbon footprint often turn to natural cedar fencing material as it lasts a long time and does so without having to use chemicals to strengthen its toughness.

Because this is such a strong wood, we often use western red cedar to build the fence posts and gates even on fences made out of pressure treated pine because of its strength and resistance to warping, rotting and insect infestation. Cedar also has pores that interlock which can help lower the noises surrounding your home.
