How To Choose The Perfect Fencing

When it comes to picking the right fencing, there are a few different options available to you. A well built fence will last many years, so it’s important you choose the best installation to match the look and feel of your property. To help you make this decision, we’ve put together a short guide on what to consider before you contact a fencing contractor

Design Choices

First of all, we recommend picking the right design style of fencing. There are a few to choose from, and each has its own advantages. These are the following:

  • Tongue & groove
  • Panel
  • Feather board
  • Picket

Tongue and groove is a sturdy and consistent style of fence, whereas picket is more decorative. Alternatively, feather board is the most affordable and panel fencing is a great all-rounder

Fencing Materials

Fencing can be made from a variety of different types of timber. Which you choose will depend on a few factors including budget and property aesthetic. Generally speaking, you can choose between softwood and hardwood. There are different specifics involved with each, such as pine and oak, but overall, the main difference is the look and price. Hardwood is more expensive, but has a more sophisticated look and generally lasts for longer. Alternatively, softwood is more affordable and widely available.

The Height Of Your Fence

The height of your fence can play a big role in how it looks and feels. However, you should always stay within the regulations. If you opt for a tall fence that blocks out the sun and towers over your garden, it could be too claustrophobic and dark. In contrast, a fence that’s too short may fail to maintain privacy and keep any pets or children within. Be sure to assess the look and feel you’re going for before choosing your fence height.

Fencing Colours

The colour of your fencing needs to match your property. We recommend choosing a scheme that complements other palettes found within your home. If you choose a garish colour that conflicts with the paint on your house, then it may create an aesthetically displeasing effect. Fortunately, you can always repaint if you decide the colour is not right as time goes on.
