How to keep your fence looking like new

What can you do as a new owner of a Cedar wood fence? How can you prolong the life and beauty of your new wood fence?

Cedar wood is a popular choice for fencing due to its durability and attractive appearance. However, like any wood, it can deteriorate over time if not properly maintained. Here are some tips for keeping your new cedar wood fence looking like new:

  1. Apply a wood sealant or stain. This will help protect the wood from moisture and sunlight, which can cause it to fade or rot. Make sure to choose a sealant or stain that is specifically designed for cedar wood. We also recommend having your fence re-stained every 4-5 years to help it looking great year after year.
  2. Clean the fence regularly. Use a pressure washer to remove dirt and debris from the surface of the fence. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaning tools, as these can damage the wood.
  3. Repair any damage as soon as possible. If you notice any splits, cracks, or other damage on your fence, fix it right away to prevent further deterioration.
  4. Trim any plants that may be growing against the fence. Overgrown plants can put extra strain on the fence and cause it to rot or become damaged.

By following these tips, you can keep your new cedar wood fence looking like new for many years to come. Remember to perform regular maintenance and repair any damage as soon as it occurs to ensure the longevity of your fence.
