Spruce (also called pine, white wood and SPF). It has the shortest lifespan among all wood types. Spruce has a yellow tone, big amount of imperfections and knots. This one is considered to be the lowest quality material for wood fencing. But it’s cheap. The average lifetime of such a fence is 6 to 10 years if cared properly.
Western Red Cedar (WRC, or redwood) lasts much longer and has better quality. It’s more visually attractive and clear of imperfections. The average lifespan of this one is 10 to 15 years. The wood is quite durable and can resist pests and rotting. Best be sealed throughout life. (Don’t confuse WRC with Incense Cedar and Chinese Cedar. These two are easy for bugs or rot and won’t last long. Make sure you are picking the right Cedar.) Fencing services in Houston
