Timber paling fences are generally installed on domestic house blocks. Timber is used for privacy, and taller fences have the added advantage of security. Timber fences can also help also used to reduce noise from road traffic.
Jory’s Fences use and recommend CCA treated pine for all our fence components. Pine is cut from trees grown in plantations which helps save our environment by not cutting down natural forests. We used galvanised bolts, nails and screws. All our gate frames are manufactured from galtube steel with welded ball bearing hinges.
There are many ways to change the look of your timber fence. Of course, if you are keeping to a budget, square topped palings can be installed with a gap between them. If a more decorative style is required, then there are many choices. The palings can have round or pointed tops or chamfer tops (with just the corners cut) and also colonial or windsor style.
The palings can be spaced with any gap you require or butted together. For greater privacy, the palings can be lapped or installed “neighbour friendly” with palings on both sides of the fence. The fence can also have a capping rail. The posts can be exposed and can also be profiled to match or complement the palings. Sleepers can be installed at the bottom of the fence as a plinth rail or to retain soil where necessary.
