Cedar Fence Gates

Cedar fence gates are an attractive option for adding the finishing touch to a fence. The natural variations in the cedar wood allow for the manufacture of gates that have their own individual beauty. Western cedar is particularly attractive with a clear or light colored finish, because the rich natural reds present in the grain are highlighted. There are cedar gate styles to meet most fence closure needs, ranging from those that enhance privacy and security to those that are more decorative in nature.

Gates manufactured in a style similar to privacy fences, with slats placed closely together, are ideal for privacy and security. People can't see through them and they don't encourage climbing. However, this cedar gate style can also be among the most attractive of cedar gate options, as they also display more of the gorgeous western cedar wood grain. This gate style is available in a variety of widths.

Other gate styles, also available in those widths, are more decorative in design, though they are sturdy in construction. These gates feature narrower slats that are placed farther apart, allowing a person to see through the gate. These offer the advantage of being able to see who is on the other side when looking from a window, door or while comfortably seated on the porch or in the yard.

Some feature horizontal rows of western cedar slats in addition to those running vertically, providing a happy compromise between the complete privacy of the larger, closer together slats and the more open designs. Well-made cedar fence gates crafted of premium quality western cedar are as durable and lasting as they are attractive. Choosing a reliable gate maker is the key to being able to enjoy the beauty and functionality of a cedar gate for years to come.
