Why Wooden Fencing Makes Sense?
Amongst all the fencing options that are there, wooden fence shines were flexibility and beautiful design matter.
Wood can be cut into almost any height and size to suit your requirements. It can also be painted with any color to match the overall look of your property.
Furthermore, it gives your property a natural look that's in line with vegetation and gardening, thus creating a decorative but protective look for your house.
You obviously don't want to change your fence every year, that's why for soft timber we use pine that is CCA pressure treated for resistance to borer, rot and fungal infection.
We also use hard woods like Garapa, Balau and jatoba which have a long lifespan.
By varying the distance between posts, you can have wooden fence that matches your strength requirements. Should you be in an area with strong winds, sinking the posts deeper into the ground will help fence withstand wind.
And the hard woods are naturally strong.
We stain or vanish your fence with a colour of your choosing. Staining or vanishing the fence guards it against effects of rain.
While Woods like garapa, balau and jatoba are naturally good looking, oiling them will give them a shiny look and preserving their color for a long time.
