Long-Lasting Cedar Fences

Cedar fences with top-quality hardware in Whatcom County Washington

We use stainless steel nails and coated screws to preserve the appearance of our cedar fences for years to come in Whatcom County Washington.

Avoiding Streaking

Our stainless steel nails and the protective coatings on our screws ensure that your cedar fence will not develop dark, teardrop streaks. The chemical composition of cedarwood makes it a highly-durable, weather-resistant fence material. However, the chemicals in the cedarwood will break down standard galvanized screws, leaving large, dark stains.

Preventing Rusting

Inferior screws and nails will begin to rust when exposed to the elements. Rusted hardware will break down and can cause the boards, pickets, and rails of your cedar fence to become loose. After an extended period, rusted nails and screws can leave unsightly stains. We utilize high-quality stainless steel nails and coated screws on all of our cedar fences in the Whatcom County Washington area.

Strong Wood Posts
We cannot emphasize enough the critical role of strong, properly installed posts in ensuring the strength and longevity of your wood fence!

When handled and installed by our expert fence team, our wood fence posts will not only stand strong but will endure for years to come. The quality truly matters! From the foundation of strong fence posts, our wood fences are constructed and meticulously installed to look fantastic and withstand the test of time. It all begins with a solid, robust fence post!

In Northern Washington, we take pride in selecting and fitting all of our wood fence posts, rails, and pickets with the utmost expertise, maximizing the life and appearance of your wood fence. Trust in our quality for a fence that lasts!

Durable Wood Rails
Did you know that there are different grades and types of wood? Our professional-grade wood rails are what separates us from many of our competitors. Our rails are of a higher grade than other options we see across the Northern Washington region. This is an important difference because the horizontal rails frequently fail on lower-quality wood fences. We see it all the time!

People sitting on the top of the fence, climbing the fence, leaning heavy objects against the fence, or branches falling onto the top of the fence can all easily damage a low-quality wood fence rail! Rot, splitting, warping ... these are all much more likely and much more severe with lower-quality wood materials. Our wood fences are built to last, and a key reason our wood fences last so long and look like new - is because of the higher quality wood fencing materials we install for our residential and our commercial clients.

All of our wood fence posts, rails, and pickets are expertly chosen and installed to maximize the life of your wood fence in Northern Washington.

High-Quality Wood Pickets
When it comes to the quality and resilience of wood fence pickets, we make no compromises, opting specifically for Western Red Cedar pickets. These pickets are thicker, wider, and denser than the inexpensive wood typically sold at big box stores. The enduring quality is unquestionable, especially given the abuse that wood fences must withstand across Northern Washington.

Western Red Cedar is renowned for its beauty, stability, and resistance to decay. It's the reason why our fences last longer and continue to look great. For a truly lasting wood fence that stands up to the elements, high-quality Western Red Cedar pickets are essential.

We carefully choose and expertly install all of our wood fence posts, rails, and particularly Western Red Cedar pickets, to maximize the life of your wood fence in Northern Washington. Trust in the unique properties of Western Red Cedar for a fence that not only looks impressive but stands the test of time!

Pricing on all fencing materials can fluctuate, but generally speaking, the up-front cost of wood fencing is usually lower than some other types of fencing. Keep in mind that wood fencing needs to be maintained by sealing and staining it over time, so its maintenance should be considered in the total cost of your purchase.

Your wood fence should be protected with a high-quality stain and sealer, but the decision is ultimately yours to make. Proper care and maintenance of your wood fence will absolutely extend the life of your fence for many years to come!

The harsh weather conditions in Whatcom County Washington can severely impact wood fences that are not properly cared for. Speak to one of our wood fence experts to learn more about the specific steps you can take for your particular situation.

Whether you need a residential wood fence or a commercial-grade wood fence, it generally only takes a few days (maximum) for one of our fence experts to get to most areas of Whatcom County Washington - to walk your property and give you a detailed estimate of your entire wood fence project.

You can certainly call us to get even faster answers from our fence experts!

Once you approve the estimate, we can often install wood fences in most of Whatcom County Washington within 1 to 3 weeks, but please check with our office of your specific project. There are times throughout the year where that timeframe may be less, or it may be longer.

There are "other" things that can delay the start of a fencing project. If you select a specific type of wood, or post options or decorative options that need to be special ordered; that will often delay the installation of your fence. We will help you to identify, in advance, any of your choices that are known to be likely to cause these additional delays, and we will offer alternatives whenever possible.

We are a full service fence company that specializes in wood fence installation ... you do not need to work hard to get a great new fence to protect your home or business.

DIY Fence Estimate

If you'd like to get a rough idea on your own about how much fencing you will need, follow these easy steps:

  • If you happen to know the dimensions of the area you wish to enclose, simply add the length of each side together. Use a tape measure. Rough estimates are fine, there is no need to be too precise, this is just a rough estimate at this point.
  • Be sure to subtract the length of any structures (like a building or a storage shed that will serve as part of the barrier). This will give you a rough estimate as to how much fencing you will need.
  • An additional step to get greater accuracy for the amount of wood fencing you will need, is to also subtract the length of any gates you will be using. The gates are often priced much differently than the fencing is. For this reason we usually recommend to property owners who are looking to develop their own fence estimate, to list the gates separately. A standard wood walk gate is approx 4 feet wide and a standard wood drive gate can easily be 10 feet wide or more.


Wood fencing is priced and sold by SECTIONS, not by linear feet! Even when the linear footage is included specifically on price estimates ... the total number of wood fence sections is a factor in this pricing. So, "price per linear foot" is only a rough estimate and rarely represents the actual cost of the finished wood fence!

This is a very interesting difference that we would love to explore and explain to you if you'd like to speak with one of our fence experts further. Be aware, "price per linear foot" is a ploy that many unprofessional fence installers in the Whatcom County Washington area use!

There are many small fence companies in Whatcom County Washington that install wood fencing. Very few of them specifically train their teams on the best installation techniques and practices for designing, building, and installing wood fencing. Unfortunately, this means that your wood fence is almost certainly not installed as securely as it could be - which, ultimately, can reduce the quality and lifespan of your fence.

Be sure to choose a reliable fence company that has been around. Here are some of the most common pitfalls of using an unreliable, unlicensed, or uninsured wood fencing contractor:

  1. The Wood Fence Warranty is Void
    If the company that installed your wood fence isn't still in business down the road, the workmanship warranty on the fence and the gates is worthless. Additionally, even if you do choose the few wood fence products and options that do come with material warranties - some manufacturers won't warranty their fence material if it was damaged during installation or installed improperly - which is fairly common.

  2. The Fence Almost Certainly Won't Last As Long
    As a professional fencing contractor, our team of installers undergoes rigorous training and constant professional supervision. We are dedicated to improving our knowledge and skills of the best fencing materials and the best fence installation techniques for wood fencing in order to maximize the strength and life of your fence. Companies that simply install fences as something they do "on the side" usually have no idea how much they actually don't know about wood fencing … and what is best for you and your property.

  3. Putting Your Property at Risk
    Installing wood fences in the Whatcom County Washington area is actually somewhat risky. Sudden, harsh weather during the installation of a fence can blow materials - damaging your business or customer's cars. We've seen concrete splatter up onto cars or drip down long stretches of walkways and driveways - as wet concrete or other materials are transported. The secondary damage to businesses or your customers' vehicles while installing fences by poorly trained labor is a very common thing.

    Additionally, anyone hurt on your property while they are working puts you at risk! If you hire an unqualified fencing contractor - you may be liable.

At first glance, hiring a "cheaper" fence company to install your wood fence may appear to save you a few dollars, but in the long run it is almost certainly a price that you simply cannot afford to pay!
