When most people think about fencing their property, they think about a wooden fence. It’s a traditional choice and offers a tremendous amount of privacy for a moderate cost. When you are choosing your fence, though, make sure that you are choosing the best option for your home or business both in terms of appearance and durability. Quality counts—and at Apple Fence, we are committed to providing you with the best materials.
Choose a Cedar Fence for Privacy
A wooden fence is a popular choice for homeowners, but not all cedar fences are created equal. The most common of these fences are the standard six foot tall privacy fence, with vertical planks. You’ll see them all over Austin, and they are a fantastic choice for this area. But did you know that all of those pickets are not the same? Apple Fence only uses ¾ inch Western Red Cedar fence pickets, because that choice can make a tremendous difference in the durability and strength of your fence investment.
Our Cedar Fences are Stronger
If you’re like most people who are considering purchasing a fence, you have probably checked them out at a local home improvement warehouse store, like Lowe’s or Home Depot. They carry cedar pickets to create a standard 6-foot privacy fence, but those pickets are only 5/8 of an inch thick. Why does this matter? When you choose to invest in the more substantial ¾ inch Western Red Cedar fence pickets, you are less likely to face damage from high winds or see your fence succumb to the elements in just a few years. The thicker wood prevents the pickets from cupping and warping, and our #2 Western Red Cedar fence pickets are made from a denser cedar. These differences make the Apple Fence option the longer lasting, strongest option.

Longer Lasting Fencing
To extend the life of your fences and make it a little more appealing to the eye, consider adding our popular cap and trim option to your fence. Western Red Cedar Fences are also naturally resistant to termites and wood boring insects. See more examples of cedar fences.
