Western Red Cedar and Treated Fences
Shadowbox style of wood fence is popular for it's good looks on both sides of the
fence. This style is also known as a board on board wood fence. There is no
worries about which side faces in or out on this style. This style of wood fence is known
as a "neighbor friendly" fence style that is aesthetically pleasing to
both you and your neighbor. This style of fence is available in red cedar or treated pine.
Treated posts are recommended, cedar posts will rot prematurely when concreted. Cedar
pickets and rails are recommended over treated, they have less tendency to warp or bow.
Advantages: "Neighbor Friendly" fence that looks the same on both sides. Board on board styles are more ornamental than plain privacy fence styles. Some wind is allowed to pass through spaces in fence pickets. Cedar boards are more resistant to warping than treated pine. Treated posts should be cemented in the ground for strength.
Disadvantages: Initially treated fence posts do not match exactly in color if using cedar pickets and rails (until it grays in about a year or is stained). More expensive than some styles due to the overlapping picket design.Treated yellow pine posts may turn or warp. Cedar posts will rot prematurely if set in concrete. Wood is not a man-made product and will warp, crack, and fade. Consider a vinyl fence or aluminum fence for less maintenance and more consistent product. A similar style is available in low maintenance vinyl called the Columbia Vinyl Fence.
