Best Wooden Fences for Texas' Extreme Weather
Living in Texas means sudden floods, blizzards, lightning storms, and hail damage--sometimes all at the same time. In order for you to prepare for this as a homeowner or commercial property manager, start with the right wooden fencing for severe weather.

Types of Wood to Consider
Heat, insects, and damp conditions all cause havoc on wooden fences in Texas. Starting with the right type of hardwood or softwood for your fencing will make or break your fencing budget. Go with an expensive top of the line wood and you will easily eat away at how much fencing you can maintain.
On the other hand, if you opt for the most affordable fencing just to save a penny, you can lose all of your return on your investment after just one summer’s damage. Here are the most common softwood species that residential and commercial property owners use in Texas:
Cypress--is not highly available and lacks durability in TX weather, but is easy to paint or stain, and is also very affordable
Southern Yellow Pine--is highly available, resists rot and mildew, and is more affordable
Spruce--is highly available, withstands severe weather well, has a natural gray hue that is attractive, and is also very affordable
Western Red Cedar--highly available, handles extreme temperatures well, is colorful by nature, and is also expensive
Each of these types of trees can easily be honed into a well crafted fencing solution. You can also have your own matching gate custom made to fit the fencing style. Fences offer superior protection against intruders on two legs and four after a storm. You also offer security and safety against burglars and unwanted vehicles on your property. Consider installing new fencing to help manage your property this year as part of a renovation project.
Choosing the Best Wooden Fencing
When it comes to the best wooden fences in Texas, there are several ways to stylize your fencing. You can choose cedar or treated pine fencing. Decide if you want to go with pressed spear points or straight top for the ornamental features. End with your very own custom gate made from a matching design.
