When choosing what material you want for your fence, wood is usually the most popular selection. That’s a given. The real question is which kind of wood do you want to use? You’ll have a number of choices and if you don’t know what you’re talking about you might just regret the type of wood that you pick. We’re here to make life a bit simpler. The material you want your newly installed fence to be is cedar. Cedar fences, installed by Campanella Fence, are the best kinds of wooden fences that you’ll come by and this is why.
It’s resistant to rot
This is one of the biggest setbacks to going with wood as your go-to material for your yard. Wood has a tendency to wear relatively quickly. But cedar is the exception to the rule. Cedar lasts remarkably long without falling victim to the elements. It also resists the damages caused by insects, which by the way, are often attracted to fences that are adversely affected by rot. Choose cedar, and you won’t have to worry about rot or insects for years.
It’s exceptionally stable
Another common issue with wood is that, aside from the rot that comes from weather conditions, the wood itself tends to expand and contract based on the humidity and temperature. The more changes in size, the looser it gets over the years, which can impact the fence’s sturdiness. It’s important that the fence stays snug in the soil and when it’s constantly changing its shape with each particularly humid day, staying snug is less likely. But with cedar, dimensionally speaking, the lumber itself is remarkably stable all year around.
It’s natural color is matched by none
When it’s all said and done, the most important factor of them all is how the fence itself actually looks. And that’s precisely where the cedar fence shines the most, literally. The creamy white coloration of the sapwood is the most aesthetic and pure looking fence material that you’ll come by. It looks natural yet unflawed. The hardwood is a perfect light brown that sometimes can have a hint of pink. And if you choose to have your fence finished with an extra coat of your choosing, the wood responds very well to any additional treatment you’d like to add, especially the first time around.
While wood is very popular, it’s also a gamble. Choosing the wrong kind of wood can cost you a lot of money for a fence that lasts you a very short amount of time and doesn’t really end up looking nearly as good as you’d hoped. Not a single bit of that is the case with cedar. It’s the best kind of wooden fence you can get and we’re here to offer it to you.
