A Brief Guide to Your Wood Fence Options

wood-2

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 and answer any questions you may have throughout the process, call Fence Connection, Inc. at (857) 388-0321.
