Closeboard panels, also known as feather edge or featherboard fencing, are a popular wood fencing option that provides enhanced privacy and security for gardens and properties. In this article, we will provide an overview of closeboard panels, discuss their advantages and disadvantages, and explore East Coast Fencing's closeboard panel pricing.

What Are Closeboard Panels?

Closeboard panels are made from tapered, vertical wooden boards (feather edge), which are placed side-by-side and overlapping each other. They are secured to horizontal rails with the use of galvanised nails, providing a strong and sturdy fencing option.

There are several advantages to closeboard fencing, including:

  1. Privacy: Due to the overlapping nature of the boards, closeboard panels provide excellent privacy, making them ideal for enclosing gardens or patio spaces.
  2. Durability: Closeboard panels are made from pressure-treated timber, which helps them resist rot and insect damage. This makes them a long-lasting choice for fencing.
  3. Customisation: Closeboard panels can be easily painted or stained to match your property's aesthetic, and they are available in various heights to suit your specific requirements.

However, with these benefits come a few drawbacks:

  1. Installation: Closeboard fencing can be challenging to install for DIY enthusiasts due to the precision needed for overlapping the boards correctly, making professional installation a necessity for some property owners.
  2. Maintenance: Although they are pressure-treated, closeboard panels may require periodic maintenance, such as painting or staining, to keep them in good condition and extend their lifespan.
