Wood is the most popular type of fence across America that gives your property a natural and traditional look. Cedar is decay-resistant and is therefore low-maintenance. It can also be easily custom-built according to your preference. Its extreme durability, resistance to insects and ability to withstand the elements make it an excellent choice if you want a fence that will last the lifetime of your home.
Western Red Cedar, with its straight grain and a medium to coarse texture, is a main choice. Another option is the Northern White Cedar. Its grain is usually straight and has a fine, even texture. Its natural luster is moderate.
When allowed to weather naturally, cedar takes on a silver gray tone or it may be stained as such.
