We’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions people have about log fencing, stairs and rails along with answers to those questions (courtesy of Adirondack Fence & Rail Company):
What types of wood are used
in the manufacture of your Fences and Railings?
We use some of the most beautiful and durable woods you will find anywhere. Our hand crafted railings and. Fences are made from Northern White Cedar or non-treated Adirondack White Pine.
Are the fences and rails durable enough for outdoor use?
Yes – These are true natural wood products, with a natural resistance to Decay Cedar, both Northern White and Western Red, grow in moist conditions and swamps and are very highly rated for natural decay and disease resistance by the Forest Products Laboratory.
Do unfinished railings and fences have to be finished?
No, White Cedar can be left Natural (and many people do this). However, your unfinished wood Fences or railings will last longer if a finish is applied. At the minimum, we recommend treatment with an easily applied water sealant of the type used on outdoor decks (we do this ourselves). Left this way, the wood will slowly weather to a soft silver gray. Some natural cracks may appear, however these do not usually affect the strength of the wood.
Is assembly of your railing systems difficult?
No – these are kits! All Rails are predrilled for easy assembly. You can have your rail system partially assembled so you only need to attach Newel posts for a small assembly charge. Assembly instructions are available on the website and are included with shipped items. Note: Stair handrails do not come pre drilled, they are measured and assembled on site.
