Why some wood fence last longer than others?

To put a line of cedar fences alone the property line can both provide you great privacy for yard activities and improves looking for your property. They are nice but do have about 10 years lifetime before you need to repair or replace the whole thing. In this short article, I will explain the common types of cedar fences in our current market and how to prevent rotting and make the fence last as long as possible.

Solid VS lattice

Most common manufactured cedar fences are “Solid panel” and “Solid panel with lattice (Web like structure sets on a short solid panel)”, they are generally height range from 4 foot to 8 foot, and 6foot to 8 foot wide. Which kind last longer? The Solid panel or solid with lattice? I usually prefer solid panel if durability is the priority because it has simpler structure and less thin parts compare too manufactured lattice fence. It’s also easier and a bit cheaper to repair, all the parts can be purchased at local home centers such as Home Depot, Rona or other small lumber retailers.
