Oak is a general term for a very broad family of trees and shrubs. Oak is extremely strong and hard, making it one of the best choices for a long lasting durable San Antonio fence. Oak is also resistant to insect attacks and fungus growths due to the amount of naturally occurring tannin.
If you’re looking for the most luxurious wood for your San Antonio fence, oak is the one to choose. The grain characteristics of oak are extremely appealing and oak is often used as a veneer for other wood projects due to its sought after patterns.
Everyone is familiar with pine trees, but the association is brought back to Christmas trees more often than fencing. Despite that, pines are one of the most important tree species, commercially speaking. They are highly valued for their timber and they are extremely fast growing. More durable and denser than their cousin, spruce, pine is one of the best woods for construction, assuming it is treated properly for outdoor conditions!
Cedar is an incredibly light and durable wood. Even if cedar contacts soil, it still exhibits rot resistant behavior and is exceptional for use as a fence post. You may have heard of or owned a cedar closet or chest before, and the reason cedar is used in those cases is that it is highly moth resistant. Cedar has a nice rusty color to it, giving a very distinct and appealing aesthetic to your San Antonio fence project.
Benefits of Wood Fences
Some people shy away from using wood fences. Some of the reasons they may cite for not going with a wood fence is that it isn’t as ecologically friendly as other options. While that may be true, wood fences are natural and “of the earth”. There is no need to worry about polluting when you have a wood fence installed. Wood fences are also generally less expensive than other types fences as well, with the exception of vinyl.
A good coat of stain will keep your wood protected and looking sharp, and you won’t need to worry about replacing it for years to come. Of course, that is assuming it is installed and prepared by a team of professionals such as our team at San Antonio Fence Pros.
