Three Simple Reasons Cedar Wood Is Great for Fences
1. DurabilityCedar will not shrink, swell, or warp as much as other lumbers. When fences made of other lumbers need replacement every five years, fences made of cedar lasts decades with regular maintenance.
2. AppearanceCedar fences will look better 10 years later than other lumbers because it is hygroscopic. Meaning, it won't split as it absorbs and discharges water moisture in its surroundings. It is, therefore, very stable and has a low shrinkage factor. It will remain straight for decades.
3. Ease of InstallationBecause Cedar is a softwood, a very soft one indeed, it is one easiest woods to work with. It is easily sawn either by hand or machine, and has good fastening and gluing properties.
