Cedar split rail fencing is a type of fencing made from cedar logs that are split lengthwise into rails. The rails are then used to create a fence that is simple and rustic in appearance. This type of fencing is typically used in rural and agricultural areas, but it can also be a great option for residential and commercial properties that want to add a touch of rustic charm to their landscape.


There are many benefits to choosing cedar split rail fencing for your property. One of the biggest advantages is its durability. Cedar is a naturally rot-resistant wood, which means it can last for many years without needing to be replaced. Cedar also has a natural resistance to pests, such as termites and carpenter ants, making it a great choice for areas with high pest populations.


Another benefit of cedar split rail fencing is its aesthetic appeal. This type of fencing has a timeless, rustic look that can add character and charm to any property. Cedar’s natural color and grain patterns also make it a visually appealing option that can complement any landscape design.

When to Stain

I am often asked how soon you should stain your fence this is the answer that I have found:

The most common reason for staining a fence is two-fold; aesthetics (the look of the thing) and preservation (stain helps to extend the life of some types of wood). 

For untreated wood (except cedar) you can and in most areas should stain your fence immediately you finish putting it up. 
Semi-transparency or solid, latex/acrylic or oil based stains all work and have various pros and cons.

For cedar fences, personal taste is your best guide. This is one of the woods where preservation is less needed. Teak and cypress being two others (but the prices for these can be prohibitive). 
Good cedar will “silver” within a year or two, depending on your area, and the amount of “weather” you experience. If you like the look of silvered cedar, it is completely unnecessary to do anything but wait.
If, however, you do not like the “silvered” look, the fence will need to be stained, usually after the first year.

Pressure treated wood should be allowed to weather a bit before staining. It usually comes with a bit of color from the chemicals used in the process, so it is best to let that fade, particularly if you are using a semi-transparent stain. 
Depending on your area and the amount of “weather” you get this will take anywhere from 2 months to a year.
Once the wood has started to grey give it a good cleaning, allow it to dry, and then apply your stain.
If you are using a solid stain, the timing is less important, you can usually paint it with a solid stain within weeks of finishing your project.

Clearance Materials

Here at CFC Fences and Decks we accumulate quite a bit of fence and deck materials that we can offer at clearance prices. This materials is sometimes extra from install jobs we do, sometimes it is slightly damaged materials that is not good enough for us to use on our install jobs. We often have Cedar Fence materials like, posts, slats, and rails that are damaged, have cracks, or are warped. We offer these materials at sometimes 50% off retail Prices.

We also have shorter pieces of composite decking that we offer at super good deals! If you have a small deck, a landing or even just some stairs there is a chance we might have enough for the job. We have random railing parts that could also be of use. We have had people buy our wood for firewood. People often buy our clearance decking and wood to build garden boxes. We even have had customers buy clearance materials to build a tree house. We have a clearance page that has an updated list of the clearance materials that we have. Also look out for our red clearance flag when we have special deals or items we are trying to sell fast.

Utahs Acceptance of Wood Fencing Alternatives

Utah’s fencing market is prime for alternatives to wood. There are several cultural reasons that seem to have driven this demand. Utah’s predominant religious community emphasizes church and family pursuits on Sunday and specifically discourages yard work related activities on this day. That means shorter weekends to take care of things like fence maintenance. For anyone who has spent time in Utah, you have likely experienced what I’m referring to.

Additionally, with over 225 sunny days per year and a moderate climate, Utahan’s spend a lot of time outdoors and away from home during their free time. Although we sell materials in addition to installations, we have found that a significant number of our customers, even those with the skills to do so, prefer to pay others to install and maintain their fences and yards because they simply do not want to allocate time away from other priorities.

Another factor that seems to contribute to decisions on fence building and maintenance is a higher than national average family size, which likely leads to higher demands for family time and a significant need for privacy and enclosed yards.

With an aggressive construction growth market over the last several years, we note that residents pay close attention to what their neighbors are doing. A quality Installation with an attractive fence in one home always leads to calls from neighbors. In some areas, such as the Traverse Mountain community in Lehi, we joke that we should set up a satellite office right in the neighborhood since we have done literally dozens of fences surrounding our initial installation.

Obviously, this is an unscientific set of observations, but based on 18 years of building in Utah I think that a combination of these and other similar factors is what led to the a need for change from traditional wood fences and therefore the rapid and widespread adoption of vinyl fencing in the past and now the growing demand for composites.

That change came in the early 1990’s. At the time, we noticed a sharp increase in demand for vinyl. We were receiving so many requests that we decided to add vinyl installations to our service line. The appeal of vinyl was clearly coming from its low-maintenance attribute and distinct look. This gave it an attribute of being perceived as a premium product and it initially sold at a much higher price point than wood.

When we first entered the market, there was relatively low competition and therefore margins were high. The market grew rapidly and consumers drove demand so high that at one point that there was more vinyl being installed in Utah than in any other state.

However, by the late 1990’s to early 2000’s, a significant influx of manufacturers and installers not only depressed pricing but the sheer number of installations (particularly because the product was becoming increasing available to lower-valued homes) diluted the sense that vinyl was a premium product. As a matter of fact, in the last few years, we have actually seen a backlash in our area. Several recently developed and very large master-planned communities in Utah and Salt Lake County explicitly prohibit the installation of vinyl fences because they feel it cheapens the look of their communities.

Day Break Academy Fence Installation

Zions Builders, the general contractor for the DayBreak Arts Academy located in South Jordan, Utah, has chosen to sub contract the custom wood fencing for the project to CFC Fences & Decks based out of Provo, Utah. The custom wood fencing with an architectural touch of design will go around the 464’ perimeter of the property.

DayBreak Arts Academy’s initiative is to “make parent’s jealous that they don’t get to stay and play” with the services provided for childcare, traditional schooling, and other extracurricular activities for children ages six week to six years old. At the DayBreak Arts Academy children get the chance to learn and grow from a world-class team of instructors in the subjects: math, reading, science, music, dance, singing, cooking, story-telling, theatre, yoga and karate. DayBreak Arts Academy’s goal is to “prepare their students for a lifetime of learning and high achievement in life.”

CFC Fences & Decks was excited to install a fence for a facility serving the community and helping kids reach potential goals. The custom wood fence design is a semi-privacy fence that includes 1×6 slats, 2×4 and 2×6 rails, 2×8 top cap, and 6×6 posts. This is a fence designed to match the “Out-of-Box” thinking that the exciting DayBreak Arts Academy will be providing for children to learn and excel in a nurturing environment.

Using Existing Posts

Throughout the years, we have encountered some fence projects that already have chain link posts cemented into a retaining wall. To save some money in the fence installation project, an option for this situation is to use box posts to sleeve over the existing chain link posts. Although CFC cannot warranty the chain link posts, it is a very viable option. It not only saves money, but it also saves time and resources.

If there is a project that is going to be putting the fence on top of a retaining wall, the most commonly used practice is to have a concrete cutting company cut circular holes into the cement. These companies use a diamond tipped blade to cut the cleanest cut in the cement. These are also pretty spendy. So if there is any chance to save money (if this is necessary for you), using box posts to sleeve over existing posts is an option.

When any projects needs box posts, we create a post with a hole in the middle so the box post slides over the top of the chain link post. The crew then uses a special fastener (screw) to secure the post onto the chain link post.

You may think this won’t be as aesthetically pleasing, but it’s actually very hard to tell the difference between a fence that uses box posts and a fence that uses regular solid 6×6 or 4×4 posts.


High Shipping Standards

I have been in the shipping industry for quite a few years. I take pride in being able to ship almost anything. CFC distributors specialize in shipping your custom fence to your doorstep in a safe and efficient way. Sometimes that can pose a problem. While most other companies would walk away from a shipment that is out of the norm CFC Distributors jumps at the challenge. One of those challenges is 16 ft long material. This usually occurs when a customer orders ranch rail.

I started out in logistics on the docks of a national shipping carrier. I always found it comical the way some company’s ship. We as dock workers only had so much time to load and unload freight. Freight was often damaged when it was not packaged correctly. This resulted in an unhappy customer and end user.

Fast forward quite a few years later. Everything that ships out of CFC Distributors location is package to insure safe transit delivery. Our biggest success is shipping large “out of the box” sized items. How do you ship a 16 ft long pallet that weighs 2,000 lbs plus?

The answer is easy. Build it strong from the ground up. Our 16 ft pallets are shipped with heavy duty casters on the bottom of the pallet. Since this kind of pallet cannot be picked up with a forklift the casters allow 1-2 people to easily push around this mammoth of a pallet. No one else in the industry ships like we do. It’s a standard that CFC Distributors holds very high.

If you’re looking for high quality fence and deck materials at job lot quantities then CFC Distributors is your last stop. Unsurpassed customer service and product awareness no one else does it like we do.

Properly Packed Shipments

A common question that I often hear is how hard is it to ship fencing. My answer to that is with the right packaging and care anything is possible. Trex Seclusions fencing when properly handled can be shipped anywhere. It is amazing to see all the places that we ship our fencing. From the warm tropical waters of Hawaii to the bitter cold snow of Canada we here at CFC Distributors enjoy the challenge of logistics. We pride ourselves in being able to ship anything, everywhere at anytime. While most other companies cut back on the shipping preparation we consider that our greatest strength. Our customers are always amazed at how we are able to ship such large shipments with such little ease. Whether its Fortress Iron fencing or Trex decking and fencing, we are committed to customer service. Which is why we are the preferred fencing distributor in Utah and the Nation.
