Pictured above is a naturally beautiful solid cedar custom board fence. This 100% northern white cedar fence was installed recently in Middletown, NJ 07748. This fence was designed to replace an existing wood fence that had seen better days. Cedar is a low-maintenance option for fencing and can be left in its natural state without staining. However, cedar can be stained, painted, or sealed with a clear sealant to extend its life and protect it against the elements. The lifespan of a cedar fence can range from 15 to 20 years and up.
