Best White Stain For A New Cedar Fence?

Hey guys
the company that puts it together and installs it says they use latex.
isn't oil always longer lasting ( deeper penetrating) ?
I figure I'll stain it, with oil, myself, after they've installed it ( so my customer will never have top complain). Anything wrong with that idea?
thanks in advance

On fences though, it is nice to stain the parts if it is raw wood so all edges can be coated completely. Otherwise, the areas without stain will tend to rot and let water in causing problems.
