Closeboard Fencing

Closeboard Fencing (sometimes referred to as Shiplap or Featheredge fencing) is a versatile and fairly robust solid fence suitable for Domestic and Commercial Fencing purposes. If assembled correctly Closeboard fencing can be aesthetically pleasing and last well. It is comparatively easy to construct and repair. This type of fencing is very good for use on sloping ground.  Please contact us or phone 01892 864646 for more information.

Closeboard Fencing is supplied for use with either Wooden Treated Softwood mortised Posts or Concrete mortised Posts.

Note: Closeboard Panels are also available for use with Treated softwood Posts or Slotted Concrete Posts.

As a guide for working out your fencing projects costs, we have included below some basic 3m bay prices. Trade and quantity discounts may be available. If you require a more detailed and accurate cost please contact us for a free, fully itemised quote.

Replacing or installing a new Closeboard fence may require planning permission. Please check this link to the Government Planning Portal which gives some basic guidance. If you are in any doubt we advise that you check with your local planning office, who are usually very helpful.
