New Closeboard Fencing on Timber Posts, Dorchester

New Closeboard Fence

Here is another job that has been recently completed by Mintern Fencing and Sheds’ team of highly experienced fencers – a new closeboard fence in Dorchester. Timber posts have been set in concrete, with each bay being fitted with bevelled rails and a wooden gravel board to help to protect against ground level moisture and dirt.  The fence has then been clad with feather edge and finished with capping to the top of the fence. All timber that is used has been green tanalised pressure treated, meaning the fence generally requires less maintenance as it is already protected against the elements and pests.

Green Tanalised Pressure Treated Building, Dorchester

Custom Built 15ft x 12ft Timber Structure, Dorchester 

Below we have a great example of some work that has been recently completed by the Mintern Fencing and Sheds team in Dorchester.

To begin with, a level timber structure base has been fitted to allow the following timber structure to be fitted on to. The height of the building is approximately 2 meters with a sloping feature towards the rear. The floor and roof have been clad with 14mm green tanalised tongue and groove, with the sides of the shed having been clad with 14mm green tanalised shiplap.

This shed also has several features including double doors that have been fitted with hinges and secure lock systems, and has three sealed double glazed windows that have been enforced with toughened glass. The roof features a slight extension on north and east sides, with timber posts that have been fitted to the corners which hold the overhang. The roof has then been covered with heavy duty green mineral felt using the bitumen and tack system.

To complete the job, a surround of approximately 5ft of decking has been fitted to the newly formed structure, which as you can see from the photos below, catches the sun perfectly!

Closeboard Fence with Gravel Board

Closeboard Fencing with Gravel Board, Dorchester

Closeboard fencing is one of the most popular choice for domestic fencing, easily blending into its surroundings when necessary whilst providing a smart border for a garden or property. Closeboard also has the potential for plenty of different heights, edgings and finishes to provide a personal touch for the client.

The Mintern team have been in Piddlehinton near Dorchester recently completing this job. The client has had closeboard fencing and gravel board fitted to follow the line of the land. Gravel boards provide a protective barrier between the fence and the ground which helps to reduce any potential moisture damage from the damp earth. The top has been cut level to suit the surroundings of the property.
