Cedar: The Ultimate Fence Material
Cedar is among the most popular fencing materials in Massachusetts for good reason. It’s more affordable than vinyl and more attractive than chain-link. Here are a few more reasons cedar reigns supreme when it comes to wood fencing options:
- Naturally insect- and rot-resistant: Cedar contains oils that naturally repel insects and keep the wood from rooting. A well-maintained cedar fence can last up to 30 years.
- Unique aesthetics: In attractive red shades with a straight grain not found in other redwoods, cedar provides a truly unique look. It also ages well, turning a rustic silver.
- Doesn’t shrink or warp: Cedar doesn’t shrink or warp, eliminating the risk of cracked or splintered pickets.
- Lower maintenance: As the wood is insect- and rot-resistant, doesn’t shrink or warp, and ages well, it doesn’t require nearly as much maintenance as other wood fencing materials.
- Offers sound-reduction: Cedarwoodhas tiny air pockets within the grain that give sound-blocking properties—it can reduce noise pollution in your yard by up to 70%!
- Versatile: As a softwood, cedar can be shaped into endless picket designs, latticing, and more.
Our team is happy to help you select the right fencing material for your project. Beyond cedar, we offer a wide range of options, from aluminum to vinyl.
White Cedar Vs. Red Cedar Fencing
Whether white or red cedar is better for fencing is a long-standing debate, but in reality, both have their advantages and disadvantages. Which is right for your property will depend on your preferences and budget. Here’s a quick comparison of the two:
- Better longevity than red cedar (some say it lasts 11-15 years longer)
- Tends to have more knots
- Lighter in color (closer to yellow than red)
- Typically costs less than white cedar
- Higher percentage of heartwood
- Superior insect resistance
Both white and red cedar can be used in a variety of wood fencing styles, such as picket, shadow box, spindle top, stockade, board-on-board, post and rail, and more.
