Care and Maintenance

What kind of maintenance is involved with cedar fencing?

Some of our customers prefer a rustic look for cedar and allow the fence to gray or “silver out” by not applying stains, paint, or sealants.Other customers want to keep their fence looking new or need a certain color to compliment their landscape and home.To maximize the time between applications we recommend purchasing a high quality stain.
