We supply and fit all types of fencing in Peterborough and surrounding areas. Below is some examples of what we do.
Closeboard Fencing – AKA Feather Edge . Closeboard is the strongest of all closed wooden fences, It is built to last decades. It is more expensive than panel fencing or interwoven fencing. It is usually constructed on site from a kit, although ready made panels are available. When the pales are attached to the frame they can be butted (edge to edge) or feather edged (over lapped). Capping rail is fixed onto the top of the fence to protect the pales from the rain and to give a professional finish.
Panel Fencing – Panel fencing comes in various heights and widths. The panels are made from strips of wood attached to vertical stiffeners. The panels are secured by either wooden or concrete posts secured into the ground. 6ft panels are by far the most popular.
Picket Fencing – Pales are rarely more than 3 – 4 foot high and are attached to 2 horizontal rails. The bottom of the pales should be 2 – 3 inches above the ground to avoid rotting.
Post and Rail Fencing – Post and rail fencing is often seen surrounding horse paddocks or on agricultural land. It is an ideal fencing for keeping something in or keeping something out. It is usually erected using a combination of half round post and rails or full post and rails. Wire fencing is commonly used in conjunction with it, usually running along the outside.
Chestnut Paling – This fencing is bought in a roll – the chestnut stakes are bound together by horizontal lengths of twisted wire. It is not a particularly attractive fence but it is cheap and easy to erect. It can be camouflaged easily by planting shrubs in front of it.
Trellis - Trellis is made up of thin strips of wood (laths) arranged in a diamond or square pattern – it’s main use is to support climbing plants. It can be employed as an internal boundary fence.
Wire Fencing – Wire fencing is generally used to keep Dogs, Livestock, Rabbits, Horses and even Humans in or out of a certain area. It is attached to wooden posts, which are used to support and straign the wire. This enables the wire to be tight and secure.
