We stand behind our product and our service, and we want nothing more than for you to enjoy your new fence or deck for years to come. That said, here’s some information on what you can expect when purchasing a wood fence or deck from Primescape.
Southern Yellow Pine
All wood is guaranteed to warp, crack, split and check.
Unfortunately, pine seems to be most susceptible to this, but it can happen with any wood. This is something that happens over time and is not covered by any warranty.
To combat this, we only use metal for posts and grade each board for quality before using it in your fence or deck.
Pine is also treated to prevent rotting, insect infestation, and deterioration. Most manufacturers provide a lifetime warranty covering these types of things, but it’s still important to take proper care of your fence or deck.
This means sealing and staining it regularly to keep moisture out and prevent UV damage from the sun.
Western Red Cedar
Cedar has natural characteristics that make it resistant to rotting, deteriorating, and insect infestation. As a result, you can expect to get 10 to 15 years out of your fence or deck before it needs to be replaced. This, of course, depends on the weather conditions in your area and how well you take care of your fence or deck.
Cedar is also less likely to warp, crack, or split because it has a consistent grain structure. This means it expands and contracts at the same rate, keeping it more stable.
As cedar ages, it will turn silver grey if it’s not sealed and stained. This is simply the nature of the wood and not a defect. The cause of this discoloration is a mixture of sun, rain, and age drying up the natural oils and drying up the wood.
To avoid this, we recommend that you stain and seal your fence or deck to prevent water from absorbing into the wood and reflecting harmful UV rays. Staining and sealing significantly lowers the chances of warping, splitting, cracking, and deterioration but do not prevent all of it.
It’s also important to note that wood needs to be at its natural moisture content, typically between 12 to 14%, before staining and sealing.
This allows the wood to absorb the stain. This usually means waiting two weeks after installation to stain and seal your fence or deck. However, in some cases, it may take longer, especially in the winter.
