There are different types of timber fencing and timber gates available in Adelaide. The purpose of installing a lap and cap timber fence includes privacy, protection, boundary identification and decoration purposes. There are also many styles available in timber fencing but generally privacy panelled, picket and ranch style fencing are used in residential and industrial areas.
Residential fencing, post and rail fences are widely used in big cities and rural areas. The split chestnut timber fencing is mainly used on industrial level. Privacy panelled timber fence is used in Adelaide to provide services such as security, privacy and protection. In this type, flat thin wooden panels are attached horizontally with vertical support pillars with the help of nails of some kind of adhesive. The boards are put together to block the inside view to provide full residential privacy. Sometimes, these boards are placed at a distance from each other to add more decoration in the design.
Timber fencing is painted with high quality water resistant paint and varnish to make the timber rot resistant, pest resistant and also for aesthetic purposes. The tops of vertical boards also have a lot of choices; you can leave them flat, dog eared, rounded or pointed depending on your choice. On the other hand, picket style timber fencing is usually installed only for decorative purposes and the boards used in this type are very thin and can't bear heavy pressure.
You also have the choice to paint, stain or just leave it in its original form. If you want to add a little security along with decoration, you should go with ranch style timber fencing. Main boards are grounded vertically and just to keep them together, two or three horizontal lengths are attached to the boards. There are many fencing companies available in Adelaide which can install timber fencing at your home or office.
