Carnahan-White Discusses Wood Selection

Carnahan-White: Which Type of Wood Should My Fence Be?

Once you have decided to have a wood fence installed, selected the site, and determined the dimensions, it is time to select the right material. The perfect wood for your fence may be different than your neighbor’s. Not only do you have to factor the aesthetic value into your choice, but different wood materials will have a range of benefits and difficulties. Today, the experts at Carnahan-White Fence Company will discuss some materials you could potentially choose for your wood fence.

Your Choice of Materials

One of the benefits of a quality wood fence from Carnahan-White is the wide selection of types of wood to choose from. Some of the wood materials available are listed below.

Cedar

Selecting cedar gives your fence a beautiful color, and it contains aromatic oils and chemicals that help to deter insects. Cedar is also rot-resistant, giving your fence a long lifespan. Cedar is a very popular selection among Carnahan-White customers for a good reason.

Copperwood

Looking for a fence that will stand the test of time? Copperwood fences are manufactured from pine and treated with copper naphthenate. Copper naphthenate is recognized by the EPA as having the best environmental profile for wood preservatives. Copperwood is also known for having incredible durability against fungi and insects.

Pressure-Treated Pine

Pressure-treated pine uses a process that forces preservatives deep into the wood. This process not only helps to make the wood unappetizing to vermin, insects, and fungus, but also helps the wood last much longer — all at a lower price point than many other choices.

While the above are our most popular choices, they are not all we offer. We offer Wildwood, Pinehill, Oxbow, and Timber Breeze. With any of these selections, you can trust that our technicians will install your fence to our company’s exacting standards. You can also stain any of these woods if their aesthetic doesn’t quite match your home design. You are only limited by your imagination when selecting a wood fence from Carnahan-White.
