Red Cedar fencing is an excellent way to improve your backyard fence. Western red cedar is the most popular type of wood used for residential fences. Cedar wood has natural beauty and durable characteristics which makes it a great building material for fences. It is a natural product that is not treated in any way. Each picket has a rugged look and is unique in color and grain. In addition, it is naturally resistant to insects, moisture and decay. Western red cedar is one of the best fencing materials because of its high amount of tannins — a natural antioxidant — that protects the wood. It also offers more stability than other woods and it is easier to work with, while being resilient enough to withstand the weather in Texas. While the weather conditions and the way you care for your fence undoubtedly influence how long it will last, generally new western red cedar fences last 20 – 25 years.
