Why Cedar Is a Great Choice

Cedar is commendable as a middle-of-the-road option for wood fencing, its alternatives being pressure-treated pine or exotic hardwood, such as Ipe. Even so, cedar lumber comes in different grades; the more knots and imperfections, the lower the lumber grade. Your choice will depend on your goals and budget.

Cedar itself is naturally rot-resistant, having a natural oil that repels insects. Unfortunately, cedar is not immune to mold or mildew growth, which is why, like other lumbers, you will need to protect it every few years.

Even so, it has a lovely warm color and ages beautifully. If you let it weather, it will turn a silvery gray. Cedar can last for several decades at least with proper care.

Cedar Fence Maintenance

As mentioned, you will need to maintain your cedar fence to get the most out of your property border. Maintenance is as simple as washing with a hose as needed; beware of pressure-washing the fence, as cedar is a softwood. 

Also, be prepared to sand and seal the fence once every 2-3 years. The more solid the sealant, the more protected the wood will be from UV light, which turns the wood into a silvery gray. The sealant will keep out unwanted moisture that could lead to mold and mildew growth.

Cedar Fence Styles

A cedar fence is more than just a fence. Like any property border, it can beautify your property by blending in with the landscape or accentuating the architecture. The fence style you choose will ultimately depend on how much security and privacy you want. It will affect the style, height, and fence material.

Popular cedar fence styles include the following:

  • Picket
  • Privacy
  • Split-rail
  • Post-and-rail
  • Lattice
  • Grid

Each of these fence styles has variations within them. 

How Much Does a Cedar Fence Cost?

A cedar fence’s cost ranges depending on the lumber grade and the amount of material used, given the fence style and size. If you have additional questions or would like an estimate, contact Freedom Fence & Deck!
