Timbers fences are known for providing a warm and beautiful look to a home, and due to their robustness, they are suitable for building commercial structures. Timber is one of the most affordable and versatile fencing materials in the UK. Wood panels come in different designs, hence challenging to make the right choice. At Edinburgh Fencing Co, we will help you select a fence that complements with your home environment.
Timber comes in various forms – mainly softwood or hardwood. The softwood includes Pine, Deal, and Fir. Redwood is the popular softwood for our customers across Edinburgh. Hardwoods are usually used in constructing heavy structures like walls and decks. In the UK, the common hardwoods are Oak, Walnut, Beech, etc.
Unlike metal or concrete, timber fencing panels are lighter and easier to install. Our fencing contractors are adept at selecting and installing timber panels around your home or firm. Poor maintenance of wooden fences can make them susceptible to adverse weather elements like extreme heat and rain. Our fence builders can maintain your fences within your budgets and timelines.
There is a variety of timber fencing styles to choose from. For instance, if you need a private and serene environment, the privacy style will suffice for this. The traditional picket style will be a better option if you are interested in the feel and look of the wall. If you are operating on tight budgets and want something to contain your firm animals, the split-rail fence is ideal.
