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.
