Why choose cedar wood mailboxes and posts?

It’s time to spruce up your home or business’s appearance by replacing your old mailbox and post with a new one made of cedar.

Why choose cedar wood for your mailbox or post

Cedar wood mailboxes and posts are 100% natural, environmentally friendly, and full of character and charm. Unlike pressure treated posts, cedar wood is free of chemicals and will not warp or shrink with time. Also, a cedar mailbox and post is naturally insect and decay resistant. Over time, it will slowly continue to develop its own unique, natural color and can be treated occasionally with a standard wood or deck sealer to preserve a newer appearance. No two pieces of wood are alike, so the rich grain and color of each individual piece adds its own uniqueness to your neighborhood. Nothing accents landscaping plants and flowers like the natural color of wood.

Cedar is far more flexible than plastic

A weed whacker guard is available and can easily be mounted on a wooden mailbox post to protect it from landscape workers and make it easy to maintain a neat, clean appearance. In addition, cedar will not fade like plastic, so it will retain its natural beauty and function in front of your home for years. If at any time you want to paint your mailbox or post, cedar is very easy to paint. Paint may or may not adhere as well to pressure treated wood, due to the chemicals that have been forced into the wood post during processing. Plastic is not nearly as durable and fades quickly in the summer sun. Plastic mailbox posts and mailboxes are also more likely to crack and become brittle during the cold of winter.

Considering value, beauty, artistic, and natural qualities, this is why we choose and recommend natural cedar wood mailboxes and mailbox posts. We also advise purchasing a cedar mailbox and post at the same time so that the two will age together and always match.
