When it comes to privacy fencing, wood is a very promising material. It can be built high and compressed which can help block sightlines. It also very durable and comes with other added benefits like temperature control and noise control.
Wood is often thought of as the least ideal material for fence installation. However, the distinction really lies upon what type of wood is used for the project. The red cedar is a species of lumber that is considered to be very durable because it doesn’t warp, shrink or split (compared to a pressure treated pine). With proper maintenance, it can even last up to a decade at best.
As previously mentioned it offers the added benefits of temperature control and noise control. For temperature control, it has natural air pockets that act as insulation. It offers relief in extreme weathers conditions, like very hot summers and very cold winters. For noise control, it can absorb noise and reduce ambient sound for about 6 to 10 decibels.
Cedar wood fencing is also actually very stylish and preferred by our clients who want an added natural element to their yards.
Cedar wood fences have two types:
- Standard privacy style – wood slabs are nailed side-by-side with no sightlines in between
- Shadowbox style – semi-private design; identical on both sides, with sight-through openings in between boards
The price range increases the more exotic the cedar wood material is. Still, it is regarded by most of our clients as a worthy investment.
