Choosing your Type of Wood

Different types of woods have very different benefits and price points. If you are considering a wood fence, choosing the right type of wood is a very important decision!

Pressure-Treated Pine Wood Fences

The pine pickets are pressure-treated to protect against rot and decay using EPA-approved, safe for environment and pets, MCA (Micronized Copper Azole). Southern yellow pines typically have very wide growth rings and thick dense latewood, compared to cedar. This increases its likelihood to warp and twist from the rapid expansion and contraction caused but the inconsistant rate these different parts of the wood absorb, thus causing it to release water and dry out. These characteristics make these type of boards the least appealing to the eye as it starts to weather.

Average Fence Life: 12 - 15 Years*

Fence Warranty: Lifetime Workmanship Warranty
An additional cost to consider upfront is the application of the first staining within two weeks of install and then again every few years, depending on the product. When comparing this option to a lifetime warranty, no-maintenance option like vinyl fence, we find the investment breakeven point is about 5 to 7 years. After which time, the wood fence will cost you more money.

*Average fence life can vary, depending on environmental conditions and protection applied after installation.

Cedar - Wood Fences

Cedar has natural tannins, making it resistant to insects, rot, and decay. It is also an all-natural product, making it even safer for family and pets. Cedar also has a more consistent grain structure, allowing it to absorb and release water more uniformly, thus less susceptible to warping and twisting. It's easy to paint and stain, or can be left to age naturally and develop a beautiful patina.

Average Fence Life: 15 - 20 Years*

Wood fencing is a great option for many properties in the Houma area. The secret to finding out if it's right for you is to determine your main goals and speak to our experts to find out what they would recommend. Wood fencing is often a beautiful accent to spaces needing privacy, borders, or some security. It is one of the most customizable types of fences and very versatile.

Wood fences typically last up to 20 years when properly maintained and protected. Due to their natural material, wood fences can rot and warp, but when protected with high quality paint or stain and routinely checked for problem areas, wood fences can last for decades and beautifully accent your property for many years. The lifespan of your wood fence can also be dependent on the type of wood your fence is made out of. Some types of wood are more dense and durable than others.

One of our favorite aspects of wood fences in the Houma area is its versatility to be able to be modified and work in nearly any scenario. Wood fences are great for privacy, but they also work perfectly for open designs. Wood fences can be adjusted in height and modified to fit the terrain of your property, whatever the shape. The other best part of wood fencing is its natural beauty. While other types of fences can mimic the look of wood, nothing looks quite as natural as a traditional wood fence.

Wood fences do require more maintenance than some other types of fencing, but when properly cared for, they are a wonderful type of fence. To maintain your wood fence, be sure to seal it with a high quality stain or paint product and recoat it every few years. Also, check your fence now and then for any problem areas you may notice, like boards warping or cracking, and get the problem areas fixed right away. When you keep up with your wood fence, it can last longer than expected!

Wood fences are an excellent choice to create privacy at your home or business in the Houma area. Wood fences can be built in solid panels or semi-private designs based on your preferences and needs. Many people who are looking for privacy choose a style of wood fencing. You can even adjust the height of your fence and the shape of the picket tops.

Staining or painting your wood fence is up to you, but we highly recommend it! Wood is a natural material that is prone to breaking down over time sooner than some other types of fences. Coating your fence with a high quality stain or paint will not only look great but will protect your fence from damage and provide the best long-term results. If you would like more tips or information on staining your fence, please reach out to our fence experts anytime!
