fence posts treated

Constructing a fence is a common project among homeowners, and an essential component of any good fence is the posts. A preservative is often applied to the posts to promote their longevity, shielding them from roadway debris, insect invasion, and rotting. There are a variety of preservatives to consider when treating fence posts; each has its own unique characteristics with different rewards and drawbacks.

Wood fencing can be preserved and protected over time with creosote, a natural preservative made from coal tar oil. This remedy has been employed for generations and offers the advantage of being both economical and efficient. Creosote is recognizable by its appearance—it is usually dark in hue—and it may be accompanied by a distinctive yet tolerable odor.

Fence posts are often given an additional layer of protection by the application of pentachlorophenol. This chemical compound is synthetic in origin and commands a steeper price tag than creosote, though it boasts remarkable defensive properties – keeping wood from succumbing to rot or falling prey to pests. Unfortunately, as with many specialized products, this preservative isn’t always easy to come by.

Preservatives exist in various forms, ranging from affordable and natural to expensive and man-made. When selecting one for your fence posts, it is necessary to factor in the cost, toxicity level, and efficacy, enabling you to decide whether to pick a naturally derived product or an artifically created option.
