The Concave Solid style
provides both privacy and good looks. Red cedar is
normally used for the pickets and rails, treated pine posts are used to cement in the
ground. The beauty and weather resistance of red cedar combined with the rot proof
characteristics of CCA treated pine posts makes this fence a winner both in appearance and
durability. The treated posts are used so they can be set in concrete to resist high
winds. Matching cedar posts are not used, because the concrete would rot out the normally
rot resistant cedar prematurely. The fence is built with no space between pickets and will
shrink to leave a 1/8" to 1/4" space between the pickets. The vertical boards
are attached with aluminum nails, which will not rust and leave unsightly stains, ruining
the cedar as years pass by. If left to weather, the green tint of the posts will
eventually match the graying of the red cedar. Stain can be applied, but the cedar does
require a lot. It is also available in CCA treated pine.
privacy, attractive appearance and durability of red cedar.
Disadvantages: High wind load as with all tall solid fence styles. Has a neighbor side (the
good side) and your side (the post and rail side) as opposed to some styles that are the
same on both sides.
