Wood Fencing

IMG_1096All-wood privacy fencing has long been the standard of the typical American home. Fence design can vary considerably from a basic board fence to one that is beautifully detailed with finials and elaborate carpentry. In the beginning the wide availability of redwood and cedar made these a logical choice due to their affordability and resistance to decomposition. Today the rising cost of redwood and overall increase of lumber prices have made homeowners consider other manufactured products to replace the traditional wood fence.

Tips for making your wooden fence last longer:

  1. Use a wood species that has proven itself outdoors (cedar, redwood, cypress or pressure treated pine)
  2. Select the best wood grade you can afford, the clearer the wood the better
  3. Use steel posts rather than wooden posts, they will last longer and provide stronger support for your fence
  4. Have the fence built so that the wood does not touch the ground, this will reduce the risk of moisture problems such as rotting, warping and splitting
