Close board fencing – the best for homes
Close board fencing is probably the most popular type of fencing for homes and gardens. Its solid, classic construction provides a good measure of privacy for home owners at ground level.
One of the things people like about this type of fencing the most is that individual panels can be easily replaced. At G&G Fencing & Landscape Supplies we carry an extensive range of fencing panels all of which offer unbeatable quality.
To ensure that our customers are purchasing products of the highest possible quality, we make all of our panels by hand at our shop in Dartford. The panels are then pressure treated to develop strength and durability and then dipped in a surface treatment to prolong the life of the wood. You don’t need to purchase an entire fence from us; if you just have individual boards which have been damaged you can simply order the amount you need.
If you are considering installing close board fencing on your property we would advise that you also fit concrete gravel boards and concrete posting. Although close board fencing is extremely durable and long-lasting, concrete gravel boards as well as concrete posting can help prolong the life of your fence even further. The concrete will have the most prolonged contact with moisture and provides an excellent barrier that protects your wood from excess moisture which can lead to rotting.
In addition to the concrete gravel boards and concrete posts, we would recommend that every two years you treat the wood with a solvent-based treatment during the summer months. The summer is the best time to do this so that the treatment can soak into the dry wood. The measures outlined above would ensure that your fence would last for at least 15 years.
The benefits of close board fencing
- The fence is easy to repair. If there are any signs of damage or aging, it won’t be very costly to install new boards. With other types of fencing, you would need to replace larger sections, if not the whole thing.
- It’s the ideal fencing for either the front or back garden.
- The individual boards have been pressure tested, meaning that they last longer.
All of the fencing and posts mentioned are available from our online store and can be delivered to your front door. Check to see if we deliver to your area.
