THE KING OF WOOD
Cedar Fences in Edmonton
For a fence material, cedar has two very necessary qualities – durability and appearance. Simply put, cedar results in a straighter and more visually appealing final product versus treated lumber.
Although cedar is a softwood; it is still one of the most durable types of wood – standing toe to toe with the likes of cypress and fir, while outclassing spruce and pine. Aesthetically, cedar is unsurpassed. It is straighter, more resistant to cracks/splinters/chips, and has a finer grain, leaving your property with a rustic, yet naturally beautiful curb appeal. Cedar is naturally resistant to insects and decay, unlike pressure treated which has these qualities through the chemically applied treatment.
Since cedar doesn’t require chemical treatment to ensure its strength, it is more environmentally friendly, and easier to dispose of – cedar makes a great firewood. Overtime, cedar fades to a light soft gray, if not stained or painted. We recommend if you are to invest in cedar that you stain it with a natural grain stain every 8-12 years. If you do this, the fence will last longer than you will. During construction of your cedar fence, we only use stainless steel screws. Beware of contractors who are inexperienced working with this material, and use standard screws or acq screws which will eventually cause unsightly black streaks to run down your new cedar fence.
Our #1 Recommendation
It is no wonder that cedar has remained a common choice for fences in Edmonton. As long as the budget can accomodate for the higher upfront installation cost, and the fence is properly maintained, cedar can still be an economically sound choice in the long run. This wood is crowned to be the #1 recommendation by Sovereign Fence for Edmonton cedar fences, our customers that decide to go for cedar are left speechless with the beauty of their new fence.

Why Cedar Wood is the BEST choice for your fence
Other Fence Choices
If you are unsure that cedar is the right choice for you, perhaps a more “set it and forget it” style of fencing is more appropriate. Cedar does require staining to ensure maximum life time, but with the right stain, you’ll only be staining every 8-12 years. However, if you’re looking to forgo any maintenance, then consider either vinyl fencing or chain link fencing for your next project.
