Wood – General Information

Wood continues to be a very popular construction material in North America. It has a familiar look and feel and it's easy to work with. It's a tradition that’s more than 200,000 years old.

The life expectancy of wood, particularly in outdoor settings, is largely determined by the requirements of the particular application. While an untreated 7’ high spruce fence may start to show rot in less than 1 year, a well maintained cedar fence, deck, railing or gate – in the right conditions, with the right framing, installed low to the ground, but not on the ground – may possibly be good for as long as 25 or 30 years.

Because all of our designs are meant to be installed in outdoor applications, Fence-All’s preferred choice of wood has always been Western Red Cedar.

Fence-All strives to offer our customers the most advanced and highest quality products available anywhere while keeping the price friendly. Based on our local climate, the typical applications for wood designs, and the options available to help maintain wood in the outdoors; Fence-All offers hundreds of combinations of wood fence, deck, railing and gate choices along with options for upgrading and/or customizing as desired.
