Choosing the Right Lumber
Need some quick help deciding what kind of wood privacy fence you want to build for your home in or around Orlando? Let’s start by selecting the fence material. Fence Workshop™ suggests privacy fences built from pressure treated pine and/or western red cedar lumber. The big differences in these two materials are the look and dimensional stability which is explained below.
Pine Privacy Fences
MCG pressure treated pine has a light and very natural color that will turn a golden brown over time. Because of it’s strength, lower cost and high resistance to rotting, pressure treated pine is most commonly the best choice for the fence posts. If the fence is not placed in direct sunlight, pine pickets are an excellent choice as well. If the fence is in direct sunlight, cedar pickets will be a much better option since they are less likely to warp as the lumber dries out.
Cedar Privacy Fences
Western Red Cedar lumber has a reddish tent and as always, a wonderful cedar smell. Cedar is a very dimensionally stable material and is unlikely to warp. Cedar lumber is naturally resistant to decay and is best maintained with sealant.
Pine + Cedar Privacy Fences
Since pine is best used for posts and cedar is best used for pickets, building a fence with both pine and cedar is almost always the way to go. Be sure to check out the different wood privacy fence styles available on your professional installer’s website and you will be able to see a large selection of wood privacy fences built with both pine and cedar.
Choosing the Style
Now that you know what material you will want to use, you can select the specific style. Here are a list of things to consider when selecting a style.
- Do you want visibility through the fence?
- Do you need the fence to look the same on both sides (good neighbor style)?
- Do you want the fence posts to be visible/exposed?
- How tall do you want the fence to be?
- What is your budget?
