Cedar Fencing is the most expensive wood choice, but you will spend more in the long run if you have to replace fence panels and posts every few years because you used a cheaper wood.
Cedar is the longest-lasting wood choice lasting 20-30 years or more. Compare this to untreated spruce pine that lasts only 7-10 years if untreated, or 13-16 years if it’s treated. It is naturally water-resistant, repelling water and ages slower than other wood types.
Strength and Durability
The oil present in cedar fibers acts as a natural pesticide, giving it increased resistance when used outdoors compared to other wood varieties. Cedar is also more flexible than other woods, making it less likely to splinter and break.
