The Green Kiwi can supply and install an array of different types of fencing to suit your garden and budget. There are a number of options available and we have listed the three most commonly used fence types below as a guide.
Featheredge is the most common type of fencing used and is more expensive than standard panel fencing. This is due to the fact that the sub components of the fencing require assembling manually and is therefore the strongest type of fence due to the feather boards being nails to cross section and has a life span of approximately 10-15 years. Whilst the initial cost is higher, the maintenance costs are cheaper than prefabricated paneled fencing as individual boards can be repaired rather than the whole panel. It is arguably the most aesthetically pleasing fence and comes in a various shades which differ from supplier to supplier.
Closeboard fencing is a prefabricated fence and has a similar look to featheredge fencing in that it has vertical boards. Whilst it is generally stronger than lap fencing, it is not as strong as featheredge fencing and maintenance costs are higher as whole panels require replacing. This type of fencing usually lasts for 7-10 years. This is a mid-ranged fencing option in terms of price, quality and aesthetics.
Lap Panel Fencing
Lap Panel fencing is a pre-fabricated panel which consists of horizontal panels of rough-sawn timber and is the generally the cheaper option. Lap panel fencing will usually last approximately 5-7 years before a whole replacement fence is required.
Whichever fence type you provide, you can be sure that The Green Kiwi will install it to the highest standard and on budget.
