Types of Cedar Fences

When it comes to cedar fencing, there are two main types: solid wood fences and picketed fences. Solid wood fencing is designed to be more durable than picket fencing and can be stained or painted to enhance its appearance. It’s best suited for homes that need more privacy or security from potential intruders. Picket fences are usually much shorter than solid wood fences and can often be used as decorative accents around flower beds or other landscaping features. They’re typically available in white or stained shades and come in a variety of styles such as scalloped, lattice-top, or gothic-style designs.

Advantages of Cedar Fences

Cedar offers several advantages over other materials when it comes to fence construction and installation. For starters, cedar requires less maintenance than other woods because it naturally resists rot and decay without the need for chemical treatments or preservatives. This means that you don’t have to worry about your fence deteriorating over time due to exposure to moisture or insects like termites. Additionally, cedar has an attractive natural look that can easily blend into any landscape design without compromising on aesthetics. Finally, since most cedar fences are custom built according to your specifications, you can rest assured knowing that you will get exactly what you want from your fence project.
