If you’re considering installing a wooden fence around your Topsail home or business, call Cape Fear Fence. We strive to build wooden fences that stand up to the elements and last for years to come.

At Cape Fear Fence, we never slouch on materials, so our customers can rest assured that they’re getting the best wooden fence on the market. Our popular wood options include:
Most of the pine used to build fences is Southern yellow pine that has been treated with chemical preservatives to prevent weather damage, insects, rot, and fungus. However, pressure-treated pine still typically does not last as long as cedar, and will need more maintenance over time. However, at $10 to $25 a foot, it’s quite affordable.
Douglas firs are lesser-known cousins of redwoods—or at least, they look very similar, inhabit the same forests, and are often mistaken for one another. However, Douglas Fir is about half the cost of true redwood. Fir also has a Janka Hardness rating of 660, making it harder than most other domestic softwoods, including redwood.
Cedar has a beautiful aesthetic appearance, and that crisp, fresh scent is insect-deterring. In terms of budget, cedar wood is a middle-of-the-road option that is affordable, long-lasting, and rot-resistant, meaning it will need less fence repair over time, saving you money and hassle.
Nothing beats the authenticity and texture of a genuine wooden fence. If you’re considering installing a wooden fence in Wilmington, just contact Cape Fear Fence today.
