Good fences are a great addition to your home. As we laid down the benefits of fencing, it is always a smart idea to add a fence to your property. Though it’s not a necessity, the benefits they bring will help you realise their importance.
It is a common misconception that wooden fencing lacks luster and appeal. In fact, wood fencing has varying types and selection in Bristol.
In fencing today, there are different types of fence materials you can get from the market. We have aluminium fence, PVC, chain-link fence, wrought iron, and wood. Wood alone offers a variety of choices and is highly popular among property owners. Wood’s natural appeal makes it tick among homeowners, designers, and installers due to their versatility in style, cost, and overall appeal.
Bristol Decking & Fencing Pro is a professional wooden deck provider that employs specialists and expert installers using the best quality materials they can offer. We assure that our fences made of wood are resistant against rot, treated well with good preserving agents, and last for many years.
Shadow box fence/Neighbor-friendly fence
This type of fence is also called neighbour-friendly fence because it will also benefit your neighbour next door since it will have the same look on the other side. The shadow box type literally means you are building pickets with an equal gap in between to manage the light that passes through and adjust the privacy you want. You repeat this process on the reverse side but with each picket leaving a smaller gap so that there is room for air to pass through..
Board on board
The board on board type follows the procedure of the shadow box fence but this time you will install or attach pickets filling the gaps so they overlap. This way, the gaps are then closed by the second layer of pickets. The other side would expose the post and rails while on your side offers greater privacy with its board intact.
Cedar privacy fence
Why is it called a privacy fence? Because the boards are tightly fixed together to form a wide board with no gaps in between. Cedar is a great choice for wood because of their natural resistance against rot and decay. You can choose to use green material, the ones that are freshly sourced or dry cedar. The green cedar emits good odour. But if you don’t want gaps to form eventually due to the softness of green material, the boards dry totally and build a zero-gap fence. Furthermore, you can build a cedar fence on your own if you love DIYs. The building of the cedar fence is easy to understand and follow. If you have an old fence made of cedar, you can take that off and reuse the planks on other projects.
Horizontal fences are a different kind of fence in terms of design. They are not the conventional type you see where most fence’s boards and planks are vertical in built. As the word suggests, horizontal fences have horizontally laid boards. But if you look at the build, you know it requires an expert installer to do it.
Highly customised horizontal fence offers a contemporary look on your backyard. This kind of fence design also offers greater privacy. Horizontal planks emphasise the size of your lawn and shows how they complement any property’s design. Aside from the size, its stylish appeal serves as an added attraction to your home.
So if you want a modern solution for your wooden fencing, the horizontal type can be your great option. Additionally, the planks are mounted on sturdier posts since they carry extra weight than when the boards are vertical. This way, it provides a more durable fence, not the one which can be easily moved by wind or another force.
