Our Western Red Cedar Privacy Fence is the standard 6 ft wood privacy fence that is most common type of fence in Austin. We select the best cedar pickets for our fences because it is essential when building a wood fence to use the best materials available. If you purchase pickets from companies like Lowes or Home Depot, you can only get cedar pickets in a 5/8 inch thick board. Apple Fence only installs a 3/4 inch western red cedar pickets which means your fence will last longer. This is very important when you install a wood privacy fence for a few reasons; it prevents pickets from cupping and warping and the western red cedar #2 grade is made from a denser cedar, will allows for longer picket life when exposed to the elements. Western Red Cedar Fences are also naturally resistant to termites and wood borering insects.
