The average lifespan of wooden fences is between 15 to 20 years. What you need to note, however, is that multiple factors determine the lifespan of the fence. Key among them include the type of the wood, maintenance, usage, and climatic conditions.
Most of our clients prefer cedar fences because they last for long and look attractive. You should also maintain your wood fence well to prolong their lifespan.
Weather conditions can also determine how long your fence may last. Harsh weather conditions like storms and hurricanes can spoil the fence. The poor weather can also attract specific insects that may attack and spoil the wood.
