Wood Fence FAQs

Today’s wooden fences typically endure 7 to 12 years, depending on a variety of conditions including the amount of moisture in the soil and exposure to the sun.

Cedar is stronger and more durable than pressure-treated pine. Pressure-treated pinecan warp and weather within a few years if left untreated, while cedar is more capable of naturally keeping its shape. However, cedar is more susceptible to cosmetic damages, such as dents and scratches. On average, cedar deck planks cost between $3 and $7 per square foot, while regular pressure-treated pine costs between $2 and $5 per square foot.

While cedar privacy fences only require two runners since it is kiln dried before installation and does not need to cure in the environment, pressure treated timber privacy fences require three 2×4 frame runners to prevent the fence pickets from bending. Due to the decreased distance between frame runners, picket fences, which are normally 4′ tall, only require 2(2) 2x4s.

No, you don’t “need” to stain your new wooden fence, but over time it will improve its lifespan and appearance.

A stained fence will last years longer depending on which product is used and will look more pleasing to the very end.
