I hope soon to have a wood fence installed – cedar pickets and pressure treated rails, rot board and cap (steel posts). I was thinking it would be helpful to put sealer on the end grain of each piece of wood before installation. Once the fence is constructed I can squirt it with water seal from time to time to try and slow down its rate of decay, but it won’t be possible to get at the ends of the boards; they will all be butted up against something or other (and not visible).
Does this seem like a worthwhile thing to do?
If so, what sealer would you recommend? The ends won’t be visible for the most part, but black would be better than white. The sealer will be slapped on quick and the part nailed up right away.
