The Western Red Cedar
Not only is Western Red Cedar a beautiful wood that will compliment any home, but one of its greatest qualities is its built in decay defense. Western red cedar also has fewer knots than other types of common materials, which is good news for you, since knots are often culprits of rot growth. The Western red cedar consists of tight fibers and grain patterns, making this material all-around sturdy and enabling it to keep out moisture more naturally than other wood options. Its dense composition provides the perfect material to build a long-lasting fence that will stand up to what climate decides to blow through your backyard.
In spite of being extremely durable, Western red cedar is one of the softest woods out there, making it lightweight to work with and lessening the possibility of damage to your home or yard in the event it happened to get torn out.
Redwood Fencing Material
With many similarities to Western red cedar, redwood is a fantastic option for your fence, particularly if you want a fence that will offer beauty and privacy to your home. As its name suggests, redwood has a beautiful red color that doesn’t usually need to be stained a particular way to bring out its color. Maintaining the natural color of redwood by using a clear sealant will be enough to provide a beautiful fence.
Redwood is also extremely pest resistant and is said to even deter insects that would otherwise be drawn to it by secreting a natural oil that repels insects. Similar again to Western red cedar, redwood is extremely durable and will not warp, bend or crack.
Chain Link Fence
Chain link fences are always a low-cost, versatile option when it comes to considering what kind of fence you want to have around your yard. They serve their purpose in keeping things that should stay in, in and keeping things that should stay out, out. But when it comes to durability and curb appeal, chain link fences are lacking in both categories.
