Types of Wood Recommended by A and A Fence & Concrete
The best type of wood to use for your wood privacy fence in North Texas is Western Red Cedar. A and A Fence & Concrete mainly uses Western Red Cedar that comes from the Pacific Northwest of North America. We offer other types of wood mentioned below if you prefer a more economical option.
WESTERN RED CEDAR
Western Red Cedar contains natural, aromatic oils that are a deterrent to insects, making this a great choice for fences, especially in the extreme weather of North Texas. This wood is rot-resistant and has a longer lifespan than other wood choices. Increase the lifespan of your cedar fence by using dip stained pickets to prevent it from turning gray in color and protecting your investment. A and A uses Hand Select Grade 2 Western Red Cedar.
SPRUCE and FIR (Whitewood)
Spruce and Fir pickets are common choices for wood fences because of their affordability. If you are looking for an economical option to cedar these Whitewoods are available.
