How Good is Cedar Fencing?
If you are looking to construct a fence around your house and are looking for something not only attractive but durable, cedar wood may be your best option. Cedar wood provides a number of structural benefits as it is one of the most durable woods and contains natural oils that act as a deterrent against insect infestation and rotting, along with being bio-degradable and eco-friendly. Cedar Fences are very resistant against the elements due to their low percentage of sapwood and they are easier to maintain as they don’t require chemical treatment as these chemicals can have a negative effect on the natural oils that already protect the wood.
Despite the natural protection of the cedar wood, after being exposed to the elements over a long period of time the wood can begin to fade and take on a grey color.
Proper maintenance, cleaning, and treatment are necessary in order to ensure a long lasting cedar fence as poorly maintained fences will deteriorate over time and may require a complete restoration, which can be costly.
