For Strength and Beauty, Choose Wood Fences

- October 13, 2014

Wood fences are a great choice for both beauty and strength. And thanks to American Fence & Deck’s expert craftsmanship and fair pricing, you can enjoy all the benefits these structures offer without breaking your budget.

If you’re considering a wood fence, here are some things to think about:

  1. Pressure-treated wood offers a great combination of strength, looks, and affordability. Modern techniques make this material stronger and more weather-resistant than ever before. Finished lumber can also be sealed and painted to match your tastes, making it an incredibly versatile option to complement any home.
  2. For the ultimate in long life, nothing beats cedar wood fences. Its great looks and pleasant aromatic smell set it apart as a superior choice for many reasons. This material shrugs off the effects of even the heaviest and most prolonged rains.  If you’re looking for beauty and endurance, cedar wood fences are a can’t-miss option.
  3. Pressure-treated lumber fences require only a modest amount of care in order to maintain their beauty and strength. The following tips will help to keep yours in top shape:
    1. Brush off dirt and cobwebs as needed.
    2. Once or twice a year, rinse the fence with a hose, then scrub it gently with a long-handled brush and a general cleaning solution; liquid dish soap and water works great for this purpose. Then rinse once more. Do this on a warm, sunny day so the surface will dry quickly.
    3. Keep sprinklers from constantly soaking wood fences.
    4. Make sure water doesn’t pool at the bottom of fence posts. If you notice this being a problem, then your property may need landscaping to eliminate grading issues.
