When it comes to securing your property, you might find yourself a little overwhelmed with all the available options. Timber fencing is a fantastic choice for properties of all shapes and sizes – it not only offers aesthetic appeal, it is cost effective, easy to install and relatively easy to repair. We have discussed these points in a little more detail in the list below.

Aesthetic Appeal

Timber will provide your property with great appeal. If you live in a natural setting, fencing made from materials like steel will almost intrude into your visual space – wood, on the other hand, is a natural material and will blend in seamlessly. Timber also provides plenty of options for privacy without making the backyard feel or look like a prison.

Cost Effective

You will find that timber fencing is more affordable than many of the other materials available, such as steel. There are plenty of options available, from the more basic through to the slightly more decorative, ensuring that you’re able to achieve the look you desire without the high price tag. If you’re on a budget, timber is an ideal option.

Ease of Installation

It is possible to slowly and efficiently erect the fencing piece by piece. There aren’t any huge rolls (like the installation of a chain link fence) or other complex components to deal with. If you have access to a post hole digger it can be valuable in preparing the posts, but it is possible to dig the required holes without any special tools or expertise.

This type of fencing actually makes a great DIY project, which means that you can save some money on calling in the professionals to handle the installation for you.

Ease of Repair

Since this fencing is installed piece by piece, you’ll find that it is also relatively easy to repair – piece by piece. If one paling has sustained damage, you can simply remove it and replace it with a new one. This is also far more affordable than replacing an entire section of fence just because one small area is broken.

If you are interested in timber fencing, we hope that the points outlined above have shown you just some of the benefits that it will offer your property. There are a variety of styles and designs to choose between, from solid paling fences for maximum privacy through to quaint picket fences. No matter which option you select, timber is an attractive and durable choice.
