Wood fencing can give any home a classic look and feel. But what are the best kinds of wood to use for your residential fencing? Mid-Atlantic Deck and Fence is here to let you know all about the best woods to use for home fencing.
The following are the top four kinds of wood fencing:
1. The Redwood Wood Fence. Redwood can be used to create your entire fence but you do not have to use the same grade throughout. You can use different grades for different parts of your fence. However, the highest quality of redwood is the wood that appears as a deep red tone. You should have this wood treated with a stain or clear finish. If redwood is not treated with a finish, its beautiful red tones will turn grayish.
2. Cedar Wood Fence. This wood makes for a wonderful backyard fence because the natural oils and acids serve as insect repellent and the wood is resistant to rot. This helps increase the life span of your wood while enhancing the beauty of your home.
3. Cypress Wood Fence. This wood is an excellent alternative for cedar and redwood fencing. It’s tan, red coloring is elegant while it maintains the insect repellent and rot resistance found in redwood. Cypress wood is used for both structural and ornamental needs.
4. Pressure Treated Wood. This wood is the most affordable kind of wood. It is chemically treated to preserve and protect your wood from insects and rot. When your fence is pressure treated lumber it can last up to 20 years or more.
A wood fence will make a great fencing for your home because it is cost effective, versatile ( any shape and size), provides full privacy, and it is environmentally friendly(biodegradable) . Keep your fence in its natural state or make more lively with your choice of color paint.
