FAQs About Wood Fences

Why should I choose a wood fence?

Choosing a wood fence for your property comes with several compelling advantages. Wood fences exude a classic and natural beauty that adds a timeless appeal to any landscape. With a wide range of styles available, wood fences offer versatility and the ability to customize the look to suit your preferences and property’s architecture. Moreover, wood is a renewable resource, making it an environmentally friendly option, and when properly maintained, wood fences can withstand the test of time, providing both privacy and security for your home. Overall, a wood fence offers a winning combination of aesthetics, flexibility, and sustainability, making it an excellent choice for homeowners looking to enhance their outdoor spaces.

What maintenance is required?

A wood fence has certain maintenance requirements to ensure that the fence lasts for many years to come. Compared to metal or vinyl fences, they require more maintenance because of their aversion to moisture. Our Western Red Cedar fences, however, boast natural resistance to rot and decay, setting them apart from other wood options. WRC wood exhibits minimal warping and twisting tendencies, ensuring long-lasting durability. While staining and sealing can help preserve the fence’s fresh appearance, it is not mandatory to maintain the wood’s structural integrity. Thanks to the inherent qualities of Western Red Cedar, you can enjoy a stunning and enduring fence without the need for extensive maintenance.

Is cedar still my best choice for wood fencing?

Cedar is undoubtedly one of the best choices for fencing due to its exceptional qualities. Its natural aromatic oils act as a repellent to insects, reducing the risk of pest infestations. Additionally, cedar’s inherent rot-resistant properties ensure that the fence will endure for an extended period, making it a durable investment. While cedar is attractive and reasonably priced, alternatives like cypress and pine also offer excellent options for long-lasting and resilient fencing solutions. Their durability and affordability make them great alternatives for homeowners seeking reliable and visually appealing fencing materials.

Are treated materials safe for my family and pets?

Our team at Paramount Fence is passionate about providing our customers with the best options for quality fencing. What we care about even more, though, is the safety of our customers. This is why we use safe treatment materials for your family and pets. Our pressure treated wooden materials are industry-approved ACQ-treated materials. We also avoid using any CCA (Cooper Chromate Arsenic) materials. Please ask us if you have any questions about specific products we will use on your fencing. We can provide you with detailed information on every product we use.


Are wood fences hard to fix?

One of the incredible benefits of wood fences is the ease of fixing and repairing the fence. Other fence types can be much more difficult to repair as they require large sections of the fence to be removed. Wooden fences, however, are built piece by piece, meaning they can be removed piece by piece. If one spot is rotted, you don’t have to remove the whole side. That one piece can be removed and replaced. This also means that repairs are less expensive for wooden fences because there is less labor and not as much new material needed.
