Low-maintenance fence materials such as vinyl and composite have been made
to resemble wood so homeowners can have that natural wood look without
having to stain and reseal their fences. Still, faux wood is not wood,
and some people would prefer to have their property boundaries marked
with a real wood fence.
If you want a wood fence on your property, but are undecided about what
species of wood to use, it is important to do some research before making
your decision. Cedar and redwood are the most popular choices because
they are naturally more resistant to rot and damage from pests than most
wood species, but pine, mahogany, and other hardwoods are also still used
in the construction of fences.
Choosing a species of wood is just the first step in this process. After
you decide, one must choose a fence type: shadowbox, picket, lattice,
stockade, etc. If you are looking for an experienced commercial and residential
fence contractor to custom install a wood fence on your Chicagoland property
