Your local Atlanta GA fence company is here to tell you about the importance of buying pressure treated wood, or treating your wooden fence! There are many reasons why you should add a wooden fence to your property. Or, maybe you have built one already? The ‘White picket’ style is the American dream, and wooden fences make an excellent privacy fence. However, you will have a lot of work ahead of you if you don’t treat your investment to prevent damage. You have to face things like wood rot, and insects. No one wants to deal with that.
- Rain or snow can cause wood rot to set in.
- Animals and Termites
What can you do about it?
- Make sure you buy pressure treated wood. Many people worry about the threat of chemicals seeping into ground water. Really, there is nothing to worry about. The chemicals have been toned down a lot as opposed to when the treatments were first used.
- If you have already built your fence and realized that you did not purchase a pressure treated wood, it’s no too late. There are many different options in sealers that you can choose from. There are also stains that will add color and seal it. Just be sure you read the manufactures instructions!
