Close board fencing is the most traditional type of fencing and is probably the most common fence you envisage.
It is comprised of wooden board overlapped against each other. This makes it extremely strong and durable against both the elements and intruders. However, like with all wood fencing, without adequate care and protection, there is the potential that damp and rot can get to it – destroying its structural integrity and rendering your new fencing useless! There are certain steps you can take to protect your fencing, such as installing garden fence capping atop your close board fencing. Read on for more about the benefits of capped board on board fence, how to choose the right fence capping for you, how to install close board fence capping, and why to choose Berkshire Fencing for all your fence capping needs!
Choosing Close Board Fencing Capping
When choosing your fence capping, you can choose between a few designs. The close board fence capping options are for style, but also for protection of your new fence. When browsing our range of high-quality fence capping, you will see we supply a few designs, including counter rail close board fence capping, and standard pentagon shaped fence capping. Counter rail fence capping is flat and provides a straight edge top to your fence. It essentially sits atop your fence, and gives it a cohesive look, but also helps protect it from the elements. Our pentagon shaped garden fence capping gives a decorative touch to the top of your fence, but also helps protect it an extra layer from the elements. Because it is pentagon shaped, the water simply runs off the top of it, down the fence, rather than sitting atop it, and seeping into the wood. This helps protect your new fence. Fences should last years – don’t shorten its lifespan but inadequately looking after your fence, or by missing the tiny step of adding close board fencing capping onto your fence!
Why Choose to Install Garden Fence Capping
Choosing to install close board fence capping is a great way to secure your investment. Close board fencing capping is generally used by fence fitters n order to secure the fence, keep all the boards together, and make sure the fence remains upright, secure and that all the boards are stabilised together. Aside from this, it also ensures the fence lasts for a long time, as it stops wate retention in the wood, and lets it run off – keeping your fence dry. So, while installing capped board on board fence might seem like it’s an unnecessary expense, it’s actually a very easy, cheap way of ensuring your fence is stable, and remains safe and dry – increasing its longevity and lifespan.
