How Wood Fences Are Made More Durable
In our recent conversations, we delved into the robustness of chain link fencing, which derives its strength from galvanized iron wire and vinyl coating, safeguarding it against environmental elements.
Likewise, the durability of wooden fences, encompassing both privacy and picket variants, hinges upon defensive strategies against nature’s forces. Pressure treatment takes center stage here, involving the infusion of chemical preservatives into the wood under pressure.
This technique forms a protective shield against termites, wood-boring insects, and fungal decay that leads to rot.
Pressure-treated lumber has garnered popularity for wooden fencing, particularly when the fence faces the challenges of weather exposure and potential insect threats. Having accrued over six decades of expertise in fence installation across the Twin Cities, Midwest Fence has pioneered an innovative pressure treatment method for Western Red Cedar.
Named the DuraCedar™ system, it employs Durazyme™, an eco-friendly, clear treatment renowned for its rot-resistant attributes. This treatment is meticulously applied to the heartwood of Canadian old-growth red cedar. The culmination is a cedar wood that effortlessly absorbs staining and remains steadfast against warping, twisting, checking, or discoloration.
