Care & Maintenance of a Cedar Wood Fence:
Cedar is a durable and resilient wood that can withstand the Minnesota weather if it is cared and maintained properly. A cedar fence provides beauty and privacy to the exterior of any home. Cedar fences are low-maintenance, although specific care is required to keep the fence in good condition. Cleaning and general maintenance is necessary to preserve cedar wood fences. If cared for properly, a cedar fence will remain attractive and structurally sound for many years to come.
Overtime your cedar wood fence will turn a gray-ish color from the Minnesota weather. Follow these steps for a long lasting beautiful cedar fence.
- Spray the fence with a power washer with a pressure of 1,500 to 2,000 pounds per square inch. This level of pressure should not damage the wood. Keep the nozzle 18 inches from the fence surface and move the spray evenly over the fence. Do not linger too long in one area. The outer gray layers will wash off, exposing the red wood underneath.
- Combine 3 quarts of warm water and 1 quart of oxygen bleachin a bucket. Spray the solution on the fence with a garden sprayer, allowing it to sit for 10 minutes. Scrub the fence with a scrub brush to remove mildew and dirt. Rinse the fence with clean water when you are finished. Do the fence in sections to keep the oxygen bleach solution from drying before you scrub. Wear rubber gloves to protect your hands. Wash the fence each year in spring or early summer.
- Brush a coat of sealant evenly over the entire fence. Let the sealant dry and apply a second coat. Re-apply sealant every three to five years. Wash the fence and allow it to dry before each application.
