Choosing Cedar for Fencing

When choosing lumber for your cedar fencing, there are many different things to consider. Basically, there are two different grades of cedar. These are clear and knotty. Clear grade cedar is a better choice for appearance sake. The grades come in various classifications based on size and what you need it for.

When you go to purchase your cedar you could be asked what species you want, what product pattern, the size and grade, quantity and the Grading Agency Paragraph. They also may offer different textures to choose from and you will have to take into consideration what type of fasteners you are going to want to use. With all these choices, it pays to do some homework before you go and buy your cedar.
