Specializing in Western Red Cedar Wood Fences

Viking is the only fence company in Texas with its own mill, where we mill and grade western red cedar. Western Red Cedar requires no chemical treatment or kiln drying, so it has a much lower carbon footprint and environmental impact than inferior materials like pine, spruce and fir. You can build your fence of this top-quality material and feel good about its effect on nature and your neighbors.

Texas Markets Served

Viking offers both residential and commercial wood fence installations, as well as fence material sales, in the Austin and Dallas/Ft. Worth areas:

Better Quality

The majority of the industry has transitioned to a 5/8" thick fence picket… ?" thick in some cases. Not Viking. Our supply of raw material is as secure as ever and we'll continue to mill a true ?" fence picket for our customers. We're also, the only fence company in Texas to also offer a 5/4" fence board.

Naturally decay-resistant

Western Red Cedar requires no chemical treatment or kiln
drying, so it has a much lower carbon footprint and environmental
impact than inferior materials like pine, spruce and fir.

Renewable

Western Red Cedar’s growth is limited to British Columbia
(B.C.). Only 1% of B.C.'s cedar growing stock is harvested each
year, according to the Ministry of Forests, and soon after logging,
public lands must be reforested with species suited to the site. The Western Red Cedar Lumber Association estimates that three trees are planted for each that is harvested.

Pine

Prone to warping. Pine does not have any of western red
cedar’s natural decay resistance.

Chinese Cedar/Fir

Not a cedar, probably a fir, recently introduced to the U.S. Has failed to deliver long-term quality in New Zealand and Australia over the last 20 years.

Spruce/Doug Fir

Lacks dimensional stability. Prone to decay. Inexpensive for a reason. Does not meet Viking Fence’s quality standards.
