Black Cedar Fence
We are so excited to announce that we are adding “Black Cedar” to our 2017 product line of fencing.
As you well know, we at Bockman Group Fence are always looking for cool new ideas to work into our fences and this year Black Cedar is our pet project!. We are on a continuous mission to find the greatest and latest fence products and new and modern ideas out there in fencing and this one really caught our attention. So, what is black cedar, you may be wondering?
Black Cedar is actually regular cedar wood but we use a special procedure to treat the wood called “Shou Sugi Ban.” Shou Sugi Ban is an ancient Japanese method of preserving wood. Its a method of burning the wood and scrubbing it to get the deep baked natural preservation of the wood and when its done, it turns out just beautiful!
There are so many benefits to black cedar that you are just going to love!
- It is the best known wood preservative there is and it is thought that Shou Sugi Ban wood will last up to 80- 100 years
- The colors are gorgeous and can be done in many different shades of black from full black cedar to lightly highlighted black
- The preservative method is 100% chemical treatment free and completely all natural. If treating chemicals are a concern to you, you will love the Shou Sugi Ban method
- You never have to worry about staining, painting or treating you fence ever again.
You don’t need to worry about getting charcoal on your hands and close because the method of Shou Sugi Ban cleans all the excess coals off the wood and leaves only the black color that is baked into the wood. You can touch this fence and not get your hands black!
Let us know what you think! A black cedar fence installed by Bockman Group Fence will more than likely out live you. When installed on Steel PostMasters, this fence is a truly maintenance free fence.
