Lots of option for the Charleston wood fence ranging from fence height to picket spacing, even picket toppings and post topping. The Maryville Charleston picket fence on the right is prebuilt in our factory wood shop and then brought to the job site for installation.

Notice that the picket tops all have a gothic topping, and that they are built with an arch between the posts.  The posts also have a french gothic topping carved right out of the post.

We built this fence in our factory wood shop on table jigs for a consistent beautiful look. TERMITES? Not to worry, all of these fences are not just resistant to termites, they come with a 10 year termites warranty!

Charleston Gothic Wood Picket Fence

 

This Charleston natural wood picket fence on the left features gothic pickets set tightly together for a privacy effect.  The Charleston natural wood privacy picket fence 5′ high photo on the left replaced a similar termite infested CEDAR FENCE less than 6 years old!

Why are the cedar styles of fencing so susceptible to subterranean termites?  The soft wood cedar fencing used in the East Tennessee area is a low grade with low if any levels of  tannin (the natural occurring chemical that resists termites). Also when using small trees you have a lot of lumber containing both the sapwood and heartwood.  The softer sapwood rots and decays rapidly in the ground, and insects love this lumber.

 

 

So the question remains, if you have a choice in a Cedar Fence that will rot or be eaten up with termites in 6 – 8 years vs. a Natural Pine Wood Fence chemically treated and WARRANTED AGAINST TERMITES, what will you choose?

Both fences will require staining in less than a year or they will turn a barn wood gray coloring.  So they will look about the same until the termites and rot take out the Cedar Fence.  The choice is easy!  Natural Pine chemically treated for termites will outlast your Cedar Fence 2 to 1, even 3 to one!
