How, our scientifically based installation techniques, using a foolproof installation process and use of high quality materials gives you a wooden fence that lasts for over 20 years. 

 We cracked the secret code for a long lasting wooden fence! 

Best part… Fence is easy to maintain

Dear friend,

If you would like a wooden fence that will give you privacy, security or safeguard your dogs for more than 20 years guaranteed to remain straight , sturdy and intact , then you will definitely love our installation process and selection of materials.

In a moment , I will reveal to you the surefire installation techniques which extend the lifetime of any wooden fence far beyond the normal expected time.

 

Imagine this, looking at your fence 20 years from now, it’s still straight & sturdy serving its original purpose well, though it has taken a heavy battering from the elements

 

There’s more…

 

Imagine not having to worry about premature wood decay, warped wooden slats and loose slats.

 

That’s what our clients enjoy with our installations

How is this possible?

Simply because we use sure-fire installation techniques, that most contractors simply choose to ignore so as to cut costs and time to complete the project. 

We get called every month, 3 or 4  times, to repair wooden fences built by others. 

Though some of the fences are falling apart because time has caught up on them the majority are a result of 2 things that can be avoided. 

Namely use of wrong materials and poor installation techniques. And these issues appear in many different ways. 

 Sometimes you find very thin vertical supports used to support a large mass of fence. 

 What ends up happening is no surprise. The supports break under the weight of the fence and the fence falls apart.

 Some fences are built with a fatal mistake, that will bring down the whole fence in a matter of a few years.

 These have wooden posts not treated for ground contact buried in the ground. What then happens is a no brainer. 

 The wooden posts will rot faster than meat buried in the ground. The result is a wobbly, leaning fence that is an eyesore to look at.

 In other cases, the poles are properly treated for ground contact but are planted in shallow holes. And that’s not good.

  Whoever dug the holes didn’t dig deep enough because of laziness or maybe to cut time short. Who knows? 

 Fence post holes should be at least 600mm deep. But we frequently find poles buried less than  400mm deep. 

 Shallow holes present two problems.

 First a shallow hole doesn’t hold a volume of concrete with sufficient weight to hold the post firmly in the ground. Again a wobbly, leaning fence is the result.

 The second problem is that poles in shallow holes will heave as the ground freezes and thaws during winter. A wobbly, leaning fence again.

 In other cases the span between vertical posts is way  too big. Exceeding 2.4m. This makes the fence weak and it won’t have a prayer when high winds blow.

 All these problems compromise the structural integrity of the fence. Soon sections of the fence become loose or break off completely. 

 Your security and privacy is compromised. And the safety of your kids or pets is put at risk.

 No to mention the eyesore sight of a dilapidating fence.

Yes you can have your fence built right from the start

The good news is  your next installation can completely avoid these problems from the get go. That’s if you take advantage of our installation process and quality materials.

We have been installing wooden fences for 5 years now. Plenty of references are available on request.

Here’s the deal: you will be hard pressed to find any other business that gives a warranty that covers a wood fence installation for 7 whole years. But we do… 

And the chances are very high , in 7 years you won’t have to call us to fix the fence… It’s only a few times we ever get called to correct work done.. 

 

Now I don’t say this to brag… but to show you that we know a thing or two about getting a wooden fence to last for 20+ years…

 

But wood decays…(Why you should not worry about this)

That’s probably the number 1 worry you have right now.

Well, we use wood that is CCA pressure treated to SABS specification.

The wood undergoes a high pressure industrial process that results in a preservative called CCA impregnated in it.

The chemical protects the wood from borers, fungi, insects and rot. 

And please don’t worry, the chemical is odourless and not poisonous to you or your pets.

Plus, you don’t need to treat the wood any further to preserve it from insects and rot. CCA on its own is enough.

Why does it matter that a fence lasts for 20+ years?

It’s all about avoiding frequent repair costs and the inconvenience that comes with a broken fence.

A broken fence compromises your security and privacy. And threatens the safety of your children or dogs.

Not to mention the ugly sight of a dilapidating, broken fence.

While it might be cheap to get a poorly made fence done today, you will soon spend a fortune to have it repaired.

So why take that path when we can build for you a solid fence that will stand the test of time.

Won’t the installation leave me broke?   No its a steal

How much do we charge? Due to the custom nature of the work, we cant give a fixed price but a price range.

For treated pine picket fence, the costs ranges from R700 – R1500 per meter. This works out to R35 – R75 per meter for a 20 year fence. And that’s a steal.

Remember the longer the fence the lower the cost per meter.

For a small length of fence like below 5m it’s usually R1500 per meter.

Hardwood fence

For hardwood fences the cost ranges from R1500 – R2800 per meter depending on the type of hardwood. The cost per year being R75 – R140 per meter.

What comes with the package

The way to a 20+ year wooden fence

Here’s just some of the installation techniques we use..

  • Use of industrial pressure treated wood; wood treated against termites, borers, fungi & rot.  Your Wood will last for 20+ years
  • 100% rust proof stainless steel screws used … fence slats remain firmly held in place. No loose sections
  • Drainage underneath wooden poles in ground… water quickly drained away, preventing premature decay of poles, fence remains straight for many years 
  • 600mm deep x 400mm wide post holes. Heavy weight of concrete to hold poles firmly in the ground… fence won’t be blown off by the wind nor lean on the side but remain straight.
  • Strong joinery techniques for gates… Gate will not sag, and will keep closing properly
  • Heavy duty galvanised hinges on gate.. Keeps the gate in place closing properly to keep your pets safely in
  • Use of wood sealant with strong UV protection- protects the wood from the sun thus preserving the color you like for many years
  • Span wood poles to at most 1.8m, gives the fence enough strength to resist force of wind. Your fence won’t lean on the side
  • Wood stained only if moisture content is below 19%. Prevents flaking or peeling of wood sealant

 

If only you want it to last, should you  then get in touch with us… we don’t install temporary wooden fences

Every fence big or small we install it paying attention to detail. We understand your fence is an investment.

That’s why we built it so that 20 years from now it’s still securing your property, safeguarding your dogs and giving you privacy just as well as the first year it was installed.

When you want a wooden fence that will last more than 40 years, hardwood is the best.

Because of the strength, durability and nice look of hardwood, a hardwood fence will add real value to your property. A true investment.

Wood staining

While you may prefer the natural raw color & eventual graying of wood, consider staining the wood.

Staining the wood will prolong your new wood fence & add ambiance to your home.

We recommend you restain your wood fence after a couple of years. This is much cheaper than replacing your entire fence.

Benefits of staining wood

  • Water proofs your wood
  • Protects your wood fence from UV rays
  • Keeps your wood fence color bold
