Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Benefit with a Wood Fence vs. a Vinyl Fence?
Wood Products are the largest natural renewable resource available. It takes a tremendous amount of fossil fuel to produce vinyl fence. Wood fencing is substantially stronger, easy to install and more cost effective.
Where does the wood come from?
All of the wood we process is lodge pole pine from thinning and watershed improvement projects. We primarily get this wood from Eastern Oregon and Central Idaho.
What is the wood treated with? What is the process?
The wood is put into a pressure tube, where the chemical is forced into the entire piece of wood. The primary chemical used is ACQ or Nature Wood, manufactured by Osmose.
How long will the wood/treating last?
The life expectancy is 25 + years. See more details in Wood Preserving.
Is it easy to install?
It is extremely easy to install. 80% of this sold is installed by the home owner. Check out the "Installation Tips".
Do you need to concrete the posts in the ground?
We don't recommend concreting posts, unless you have real sandy soil. Concrete drives the cost of the project up.
Can you paint/stain a wood fence?
You can stain a wood fence; look for a high pigment stain. We don't recommend painting wood; it will eventually chip.
Do you deliver?
Yes, we deliver. Delivery Charge depends on location.
