Advantages of Cedar Fences and Gates
Displays Unique Natural Beauty
One of the main reasons homeowners choose cedar is because of this wood’s natural beauty. The Western Red Cedar features a uniform grain that is rare in the wood world. This straight-grained lumber provides a high-end material for your fence. It looks stunning!
You decide the design of your cedar fence. Do you want total privacy? A full panel or modified panel design may be your best fit. Or do you prefer a more open picketed look? Horizontal slabs? Vertical? Do you want to keep people from looking in, but perhaps have a top slab to allow friendly squirrels to scamper across? The choices are yours and we can help you make them if you are unsure!
Requires No Maintenance
By choosing our post-on-pipe option your cedar fence is guaranteed to last. The pipe securely stabilizes the posts even in our inclement northwest conditions. We can even scout your yard for potential damaging elements such as sprinkler locations and piles of debri, to help ensure your fence’s longevity.
Cedar is known for its durability. Wester Red Cedar naturally consists of oils and preservatives that increase its resistance to rotting, to bugs, and, allows it to withstand inclement weather conditions. Cedar maintains its structural integrity for a long time – longer than pressure-treated wood. Cedar is naturally resistant to termites and, in fact, people use cedar wood chips to deter moths and other pests in their planting beds!
Cedar Weathers Well
Cedar, like any wood, deteriorates over time. However, the natural oils we mentioned have another benefit: they help cedar deteriorate more slowly. You can go years without having to replace your fence due to structural issues, which would be the case with cheaper material. What’s more, many homeowners prize the silvery appearance cedar takes on as it weathers and blends into your landscape.
