Why Isn’t Wood Recommended for Security Fences?

Friday, June 17th, 2022
Wood fencing is a great option for privacy, but it doesn’t hold up as a solid security fence.

Fences can be made of several different types of materials, but security fences tend to be metal. You might be wondering why—wood fencing is excellent for residential and privacy fencing. It’s affordable, easy to install, and it keeps prying eyes off of your property. This is all true, but a good privacy fence tends to be a bad security fence. These fences perform distinctly different duties—good privacy goes both ways and good security requires a lack of privacy for anyone hoping to breach the perimeter your fence protects.

High Security Fence for Residential Properties

Do you need to better secure a residential property or commercial property? Do you prefer a fence that’s not made of aluminum or wrought iron? If this sounds like you, you may want to have a custom wood fence designed and installed for your property.

A wood fence can last on average 20 years with proper maintenance. You can expand that average life span by paying more upfront for your wood fencing. The better quality wood material used for the fence project, the longer it will last.

Here are some excellent woods Hercules Fence High Security can use to build you a private and secure fence:

  1. Red Cedar. This wood is resistant to many elements that would naturally damage wood such moisture, mold and infestation by insects. If you want a picket wood fence, you can never go wrong with a red cedar fence.
  2. White Oak. This wood is very durable because it solid and holds up well to the elements. With regular maintenance you will not have to worry about warping or bowing ruining your fence.
  3. Exotic wood. If you are looking for a fence that’s resilient and beautiful in design, you cannot go wrong with any type of tropical wood. Some popular tropical hardwoods are Brazilian cherry and Tigerwood. These types of woods are very dense; pre-drilling is required. The tropical woods are also considered green fencing.
  4. Pressure treated wood, specifically pinewood. You can count on this fence type to be very durable and moisture resistant because it’s chemically treated to combat natural degeneration of wood.

If you do not want to deal with the potential high maintenance of having a wood fence, you can always opt out for a plastic lumber fence. What is plastic lumber? Plastic lumber is a synthetic fence, also known as a PVC fence. The average wood fence can last nearly 20 years, but the average plastic lumber fence can last 100 years and counting. It’s a low maintenance fence that’s definitely worth the price.

No matter you choice for a wood fence, a well-designed wood fence will 100% define your borders while giving you the privacy you desire for your home or business.

The most commonly used wood for creating wood fences are cedar and pine.
