Folsom Douglas Fir Fencing
A wooden fence made of Douglas fir is not a bad call at all. The material’s Janka Scale rating of 660 means it’s a tough wood to break down. Along with its good rating on Janka Scale, it also scored high in how well it will resist decay and being eaten away by bugs, giving you fencing that lasts for years without the need of any maintenance.
Folsom Fencing Contractor will make your Douglas fir fence perfect by applying a protective stain that will give your fencing a beautiful golden amber color. This is especially important as Douglas fir can naturally have a silver-gray hue to it, which would make the coloring of the wood look dull and lackluster.
Folsom Fencing Contractor offers two types of staining for Douglas fir fencing: semi-transparent or transparent.
Semi-transparent stains allow the natural beauty of the wood grain to show through, which is especially beautiful for fences with knots and other unique wood markings. The advantage of semi-transparent staining is that not only will your fencing look great, but it will also be protected from ultraviolet rays and water damage, keeping the fencing in great condition for many years.
Transparent stains, however, add a coat of color to your Douglas fir fencing without making it look dull and drab like semi-transparent staining could potentially do. With clear color added to your fence, you get protection from ultraviolet rays while also protecting it from water damage and bugs. But you also get the added benefit of having a great-looking fence that would look nothing short of amazing with its golden hue.
Both types of Douglas fir fencing staining by Folsom Fencing Contractor will protect your fencing from water damage, which can drastically shorten the lifespan of wooden fences. Re-coating your fence every couple of years with transparent or semi-transparent stain will prolong the life of your fencing, making it an excellent choice for homeowners who want fencing that can last for ages.
On top of all this, we pressure-treat our Douglas fir posts, which impedes underground rotting. This is a huge benefit for those who live in damp climates and places near the coast, where wood is more likely to rot quickly. Many homeowners would often turn to more expensive cedar or redwood, but with proper treatment, there is no reason to forgo Douglas fir. Pressure-treating your Douglas fir posts will result in no rotting, even without staining. Along with that waterproof staining, Douglas fir will last even longer.
