Cedar Species Information

Yellow cedar is about 15% stronger than Red Cedar, lasts longer in the ground, holds nails better and is more bug resistant. It is also more difficult to stain because of its tight grain and oil content. Red cedar is a much more porous wood and accepts a greater variety of stains. Red cedar also has less of a tendency to warp than yellow cedar. Yellow Cedar grows closer to the tree line than Red Cedar and is therefore less abundant and due to logging restrictions, more Red Cedar Trees are cut than Yellow. In terms of cost, Yellow Cedar is slightly more expensive in smaller dimensions than Red Cedar, but larger Yellow Cedar timbers are considerably more expensive.

You should check with your local city hall, but you will probably find that 6 feet is the maximum height allowed.

We have found it is best to cement the fence posts in the ground. It is important that you tamp the ground firmly as you are replacing the dirt and rocks in order to make the post as sound as possible. Normally we recommend a minimum or 1 but prefereably 1-1/2 55 lb bag of premixed cement per post hole.

We have both cedar and asphalt shingles. The asphalt shingle is available in a black only. If you want to match the shingles on your house we could delete our shingles from the shed package and you could purchase matching shingles elsewhere.

The floor consists of 2×4 Kiln-Dried Spruce for the joists and plates with 5/8″ Plywood flooring.
No, the Shed-kits are completely knocked down. It would be difficult to transport pre-fabricated Sheds without compromising the structure in transit, there is the possibility that it could get damaged en route to the location, and pre-fabricated structures are difficult to tie-down securely without causing some superficial marking or damage to the structure itself.

We recommend a foundation of Pressure Treated 4 x 4’s running front to rear, perpendicular to the floor joists. Cement pads or pier blocks may be used depending on how level or how soft the ground is. Typically on a 8′ or 10′ wide three rows on 4 x 4’s (2 on the outside and 1 down the middle) provided adequate support If cement pads are to be used we like to see a maximum spacing of about 4 feet between pads.
No. Some of our customers have poured cement pads or have the floor deleted from their kits so we leave the Foundation kit as an optional add-on.

Warranty Information

Sunbury has no written warranty on its products because cedar is a natural product that is affected by the environment. However, having said that, we have been in business over 25 years and we stand behind everything that we manufacture.
We have a one year limited warranty on workmanship. The warranty on wood is carried by Mother Nature! However, Sunbury Cedar will give an allowance of repair of 5 boards per 100’ of installed fencing for the first 12 months from completion of the project.

Wood Preservation Information

Staining your wood with a solid, semi-transparent or translucent stain will prolong the life of your cedar structures.
It is recommended that Pressure Treated Posts are left to dry-out thoroughly before applying any Wood Treatment or Preservative. Treated Posts are soaked in tanks during the treatment process and often arrive wet to the core. If you stain these posts before the treatment has a chance to dry out, it can react with the Stain you’re applying. We recommend around 2-3 months of sustained good weather before applying Stain to this product.
