Fencing Wokingham and Maidenhead – Residential and Security

Fencing is a very important feature as it can influence the look and feel of a garden, it may also be used to keep pets in or other animals out.

Whether you require closeboard fencing in Wokingham or Maidenhead for added security, a budget larchlap, or trellis as a decorative boundary, we will measure, select and erect your chosen style. All our wood products are pre treated with preservative to ensure they are protected from the weather. There is no need to further treat them during their life except to make them more attractive and looked after. The choice of colour is between a natural looking pine colour (called green in the trade) and brown which is pre dipped to give a deeper colour finish.

As well as supplying high quality, hard wearing panels and fence posts, we ensure they are suitably erected to withstand all types of weather. We can also add wires to your fencing to help support and train climbers, showing them off to greater effect.

We offer a choice of boards and posts depending on your requirements. For added strength and durability we can fit concrete posts and gravel boards. Although if you have more of an eye on your budget we can opt for wooden posts, which are good for many years and wooden gravel boards which can be easily renewed at little cost.

Larchlap panel fencing – horizontal strips making up 6’x6’ panels – pre constructed by manufacturer.

This was the standard fencing supplied for most developments over the last 20 years. They used to be erected using 3”x3” wood posts – these rotted easily and so now we use 4”x4” posts which last substantially longer. Concrete slotted posts are used in combination with panel fencing to enable quick and easy replacement of worn out or damaged panels. Sometimes we will suggest a temporary repair to a post using a concrete spur to hold up an individual post if the rest of the fence seems to have some life left in it. Typically this is the horizontal larchlap style 6’ x 6’ but the vertical feather-board style ones are specified as a more attractive alternative.

Feather-board or feather-edge fencing – narrow vertical planks of wedge shaped wood.

This style of fencing is more robust and is constructed on site. We fix the posts in the ground with concrete mix (using wood or concrete posts to suit), then brace the posts with longitudinal triangular arris rails and a gravel board across the base. We then nail on the boards individually to give a strong fence with a pleasing appearance. If you would like that extra little touch we suggest adding a top rail and capping to the top of the fence. This style of fencing normally is erected in bays of 3m and work out as economical as a basic larchlap one if the measurements work out just right!

We also provide a maintenance service, applying fence paint or preservative to help maintain the appearance and strength of your fencing year after year.

If your fence has suffered in high winds, or you have a rotting post, the risk of the whole fence coming down is greatly increased. In this instance we will put in a single support spur and measure up for a quote so that you can assess your options.

Wire mesh and chain link fencing

When you need to secure your garden from pets escaping or wildlife such as foxes getting in, wire mesh may be the solution. Chain link similar to tennis court style netting but in lower profile can be installed behind an existing hedge and be virtually invisible.
