Pros and Cons of Timber Fencing

Timber fencing is popular in Brisbane. As prolific timber suppliers in the Brisbane area since 1972, we can say proudly that we are responsible for a lot of those fences. We have provided the materials for picket fences, paling fences, horizontal slat fences, channel fences and lap and cap fences.

There are many reasons why timber fencing is so popular in Brisbane, but they aren’t for everyone. Here are the pros and cons of timber fencing.

Why You Want a Timber Fence

Timber is a versatile fencing material. From the basic picket fence to the large paling fence, your options are endless. A picket fence serves as a decorative boundary, but allows you to see out and your neighbours to see in. If you want privacy, you can have a paling fence that keeps neighbours from seeing inside of your property.

Pros and Cons of Timber Fencing

Of all the fencing materials, timber is by far the easiest to work with for a DIY project. It allows you to work at your own pace and dictate the appearance and design of the fence yourself. It is also easy to make your fence whatever dimensions you want. All you have to do is cut your components to size.

If you have damage to a timber fence, you can repair it yourself. Usually, the repairs are easy because only one post, rail, slat or paling will be damaged. If you decide you don’t like how your timber fence looks, you can always paint over whatever finish you currently have.

Drawbacks of a Timber Fence

You need to make sure your timber is sealed and coated. If it isn’t, the timber is susceptible to moisture. Since timber is susceptible to pests such as fungi and termites, you need treated timber to ensure long life.
