Closeboard Fencing

Closeboard Fencing
Closeboard Fencing

Closeboard fencing is one of the most popular fencing types among our customers and across the UK, and it’s easy to see why. It’s known for its strength and versatility, as well as the classic design. This type of fencing is built using vertical featheredge boards that partially overlap for privacy and stability. These are then fixed to horizontal boards behind. It is the most efficient way to build a wooden fence.

Benefits of Closeboard Fencing

Fencing constructed with individual lengths of wood is extremely versatile and offers a lot of benefits. These include:
• Ease of repair: individual boards are easily replaced and repaired over time without having to remove entire fence panels.
• Sizing options: this type of fence can be built to practically any height and length
• Longevity: the featheredge boards that make up Closeboard fencing are pressure treated, meaning that they last longer
• Versatility: Closeboard fences can be built on slopes and on practically any ground

Getting the Most Out of Your Fence

While Closeboard fencing is very durable and long-lasting, there are ways to extend its life even further and reduce the ongoing cost of maintenance. You can do this by using concrete posts when building the fence, as well as concrete gravel boards. These materials come into the most prolonged contact with moisture and degrade slower than wood, so your fence will last longer and any components that do need replacing will all be well above ground level. Lawsons stocks everything you need to build your fence, including gravel boards, posts, accessories, and panels or boards. We even offer the initial tools needed for fencing projects, including spirit levels, post hole grafting tools, and ranging lines.
