Wooden Fence FAQs
How long does a wooden fence last?
Untreated wooden fences can last anywhere from 4 to 30 years depending on material and care. Hardwoods like cedar last about 15 to 30 years while softwoods like spruce last around 4 to 7 years. Treated wood lasts longer such as around 20 years for spruce and 40 years for cedar.
How much does a 6-foot wooden privacy fence cost?
The cost of a wooden privacy fence ranges from $24 and $40 per linear foot. This includes the cost of labor and materials. Other factors that influence the total cost include the type of wood and the desired style.
How often do wood fences need to be replaced?
Wood fences should be replaced about every 15 to 25 years to maintain maximal protection and aesthetics. Environmental factors like wind lead to leaning, and moisture from the ground and weather leads to eventual rotting and splitting. To increase the longevity of wood fences, ensure your fence is treated with a preservative to withstand these factors.
How do I extend the life of my wood fence?
You can extend the life of your wood fence by having your fence cleaned roughly every five years to remove built-up dirt and mildew. Also, getting your fence painted and stained helps to seal out moisture and protect against weathering in the long run. Between these periods of maintenance, inspect your fence every year to look for signs of damage. Individual panels and posts may need to be repaired or replaced if they are decaying or missing pieces which will prevent the entire fencing from declining in quality.
How do I know that my fence company is installing wooden fence posts to keep them from rotting?
To prevent wooden fences from rotting, your fencing company should offer you materials that are more resistant to rotting or that will last longer overall. Hardwoods like cedar are great options. Your fence company should also be reliable in proper installation to minimize the contact your fencing has with soil and excess moisture.
Does it matter what type of wood is used to build a wooden fence?
Certain types of wood are more ideal for fences. Hardwoods like oak and redwood tend to be more expensive, but last longer. Softer woods like pine are less expensive but are more prone to rotting. The type of wood best suited for your fence depends on the look and style you are going for, and the amount of upkeep you are willing to put in. Talk to a trusted fencing company to select the best wood for you.
Is the price difference worth it?
The type of wood used for fencing affects the total cost. More durable woods tend to cost more since they stand up to insects and don't rot as easily. Softwoods are more affordable as they are less durable and don't withstand conditions like dampness very well. If you want fencing that lasts a lot longer and does not require as much maintenance, investing in more durable woods is worth the price.
What things can be done to make wooden fences decorative?
You can transform the look of your wooden fences with unique styles. Some popular styles include privacy layouts and picket fence. You might also be able to customize your fencing layout depending on the fencing company. Another way to make wooden fences more decorative is to add outdoor decor. Some popular methods include adding plants along fences, adding string lights, and playing with color alternatives.
