Folks, here we are again. I wanted to take you and show you the Cedar Mount Vernon Wyngate picket fence we just completed. The reason we like to use cedar is because it’s a lot more dimensionally stable than pressure treated southern yellow pine. It’s not a sap wood; it doesn’t warp and crack and twist and split like the southern yellow pine pressure treated boards do.
We do a tremendous amount of cedar fence. As a matter of fact, most of the homes that I’ve owned, I’ve always done to cedar fencing at my personal homes. It takes a paint or a stain a lot better than pressure treated pine. It’s a green product because it’s not full of chemicals which are environmentally unfriendly.
This particular fence was done because the customer had a sports court built and wanted a little bit of privacy from the street. Also keep the kids and balls and everything from running around. So fencing has many, many purposes.
In a minute here, we’ll take a walk around the side of the yard and show you the finished product on the side of the property.
Here we are. Welcome back. Notice one of the green Mid Atlantic signs on the fence. You see these all over the county. We’ve done about 10,000 jobs in and around the county since 1986 that’s just fencing jobs. We accented this job with the colonial Gothic posts. We added in another gate so that in case the kids hit the ball over the fence, they could get out and not have to run around the whole entire yard.
This turned out really, really nice. I really love the way the cedar looks. If you’re interested in fencing, definitely take a look at western red cedar. It is affordable. It is a green product. And it is, I would have to say, one of the best choices for fencing that can choose for wood fencing.
Thank you for viewing the video. Hope you come back. We’ll be doing a lot more of these throughout the year.
