While wood fences in general can be rather expensive and require higher maintenance efforts, they come with a variety of benefits—especially if the wood is cedar. Wood fences are considered some of the most attractive and appealing fences, and they are a great solution when you want privacy. In some designs, the lack of posts and rails make scaling the fence more difficult, adding to the security of your property.
Cedar fences also have one of the lowest impacts on the environment out of all fencing materials. Because of their natural resistance, they do not typically require chemical sealants, and they are fully biodegradable. In noisy residential and commercial areas, they can even dampen “noise pollution” by absorbing sound waves. Finally, when compared to other wood fencing options, cedar is more durable and reduces some of the maintenance requirements that wood typically demands. It is able to adjust its internal moisture levels to closely reflect the atmosphere, allowing it to perform well against the elements and protecting it against cracking, warping, shrinkage, and splitting.
