Fasteners for Cedar Fencing And Other Cedar Projects

The best choice for use with cedar is hot-dipped galvanized, aluminum and stainless steel fasteners. These fasteners are recommended because they are corrosion resistant.  Other types of nails and screws are not recommended because they can react with the cedar causing staining of the wood and possibly rust and disintegration.

When using larger, heavier timber you will need heavier fasteners than just nails and screws. You could use bolts, lag screws, split rings, shear plates, or sometimes custom made hardware is necessary. You will need to make sure that what you choose to use is corrosion resistant to prevent future problems. This can become costly if the proper fasteners are not used so a well planned project is the best route.
