When choosing a material for your Tulsa residential fence, there are a lot of factors to consider. In this article, we will focus on the pros and cons of wood fencing in Oklahoma. Since wood fences are a popular type of fence in our area, Allied Fencing, a top Tulsa fence company, put together a list that might help you make the best decision for your property.

Wood Fences and The Tulsa Climate

Due to the fact that it is a natural material, a fence made of wood will need lots of maintenance and upkeep and eventually even need to be replaced. That being said, wood fences do weather the harsh Tulsa climate pretty well, and with a little maintenance on your part, your wood fence will look great and remain in good condition for many years to come. Also, when you factor in the lower cost of most wood fences compared to other fencing materials like aluminum or vinyl, wood fences really can be a good choice for most Tulsa homeowners. 

Strength of Wood Fences

You might ask yourself, “Are wood fences strong enough for my Tulsa property?” The answer is yes, when you use a trusted Tulsa fence company like Allied Fencing to install your residential fence. Allied ensures the strongest wood fencing possible by meeting the following criteria:


  1. Strong Steel Posts that are Properly Installed
    Allied builds our fences with strong steel posts that are crafted with the best practices and industry standards for optimal durability. Our skilled installation team has been trained to use the most advanced methods, ensuring your wood fence will last for years to come.


  1. High-Quality Wood Fencing Material
    Many low-budget fence companies use lower-quality wood, which is less dense or has many imperfections. Big box stores often carry this lower grade of fencing wood. Allied only uses high quality cedar for our wood fences, ensuring a longer lifespan when installed by our professional installation team.


  1. The Boards Are Properly Fastened
    Fence pickets and rails must be fastened properly using the proper exterior-grade hardware.  Again, some discount fence companies in the Tulsa area save a few dollars by using inferior fasteners.  When this happens, the fence loses strength and long-term integrity. When you want a quality, durable Tulsa residential fence, the fence experts at Allied can be trusted to meet your fencing needs.
