Cedar is the most popular wood fence material in Meridian for good reason. A wood fence built with metal posts will last for years. Western Red Cedar is a naturally durable wood fence that matches up perfectly for the Idaho climate.
Red cedar is lightweight and possesses high weather resistance plus decay properties.
99 % of the cedar pickets we use are kiln-dried 7/8 inch thick, a premium #2 grade-board. You will get the minimal warping or shrinking of any cedar picket available on the market.
Cedar fence boards look great the day they go up and will continue to look great long after we are gone.
Wood fencing is also highly customizable when it comes to design. Vertical, horizontal, total privacy, semi-privacy, simplistic, decorative or anything you might desire.
Premium pickets with 2 3/8 inch round galvanized posts set in concrete make for the strongest cedar fence. If you are spending the money on a new fence choose metal posts.
Typically steel posts only slightly raise the cost per linear foot on a new fence. With metal posts you will not have to worry about posts rotting off in the ground, versus wood posts will start to fail within 10 years.
Cedar fencing is lightweight and possesses high weather resistance and decay properties. It is less susceptible to moisture, fungi growth and insect infestation.
Cedar can withstand long periods of baking sun, heavy rain, snow, hail and strong winds.
Cedar fence has naturally stunning wood with deep, tonal properties that accentuate the richly textured wood grains and exposed heartwood. When new it contains a light colored hue with a tinge of red, gradually turning to gray as it ages over the years.
If you prefer to avoid the “graying”, cedar is porous and resin free so it holds a variety of finishes from clear sealers to rich darker stains.
