If you love the classic natural look of wood, don’t be afraid to let it show in your home’s exterior. Sure, wood is traditional, but it is one of those materials that will never go out of style.
Plus, they have a lot to offer other than aesthetic appeal;
- They offer better privacy and security; you won’t have to worry about trespassers and animals getting into your property, and there won’t be a case of your kids and pets leaving your property via the fence.
- You can also think of wood fences as soundproof; with proper installation done, wood fences are able to absorb a significant amount of noise coming from neighboring properties and the streets as well.
- It offers a variety of options. Wood fences come in a wide variety; you can choose picket style, lattice, rail, louvered, or privacy style. And better still, you can customize it as well.
Wood types to choose from
Not all wood types can make a good fence.
When choosing a wood type for your fence, you may need to focus on the qualities of the wood-based on its appearance, rot resistance, durability, and of course, price.
Among the top-quality wood types are:
- Cyprus; is a durable wood, rot-resistant, and contains a natural chemical that repels insects
- Cedar; like Cyprus, it’s an excellent durable wood material that is also rot-resistant.
- Pine; it’s mostly preferred because of its affordability, but it is durable as well
- Redwood; is the fancy high-end wood type, it’s durable, and its good looks supersede its high price.
You can also consider other options such as bamboo and oak, but they don’t meet up the standards of the above four.
Would you consider wood fencing? Which one will that be?
Ultimately, you know what’s best for you.
