Spruce Fencing by Fence Pro

Spruce Fence Details

Spruce fence, often referred to as whitewood, is our least expensive option in wood fence. While not a “top of the line fence”, spruce offers a very affordable option for those on a tighter budget that still desire a privacy fence. The average life expectancy of a spruce fence is approximately 8-10 years.

Spruce Wood Fencing InstallationThere is a vast array of options available to increase the overall appearance and longevity of your new wood, spruce fence.

Steel posts eliminates the need to replace posts that decay at ground level due to moisture or abuse from line trimmers.

Adding an oil based stain/sealant not only protects the wood but enhances the overall appearance as well.

Treated pine baseboards, often referred to as kick boards, allow the more vulnerable fence pickets to be raised 4-5” above the ground virtually eliminating damage to the pickets from moisture and line trimmers.

Aesthetic options include decorative trim,corbels,2×8 cap boards as well as numerous other optional upgrades to personalize or enhance the beauty of your new fence.

Spruce wood is also referred to as white wood. It is a light color when first installed, but darkens with exposure to the sun. A spruce fence will turn gray with exposure to direct sunlight.

Wood Fence Notes

Spruce pickets are cut from 2 x 4′s that are regularly stamped or sprayed with grade markings. These markings are normal and usually fade away as the wood weathers. It is common for some wane (barky edges) to be found on spruce pickets and rails. Pickets will shrink as they dry out.
