One of the most
popular materials used for fencing one’s backyard is wood, which
offers versatility in fencing that is unmatched by any other
material. To ensure a long life for your wood fence, we recommend
choosing a rot resistant wood or a pressure treated option.
For rot resistance,
red western cedar is a distinct species of cedar that is ideal for
fencing, since its wood is exceptionally lightweight, of soft
texture and close, even straight grain. It is very easily worked,
and can be finished to a smooth, silky surface with little effort.
The wood holds stains, paints and enamels excellently, and has
superior gluing qualities.
If you are looking
at pressure treated lumber, generally southern yellow pine is the
choice for homeowner use. Pressure treated woods are preserved to
resist damage caused by moisture and termites.
