Description

If you are looking for a versatile garden fence that does not detract from the look of your home, then look no further than a Dunster House Picket Fence. These incredibly popular panels will add substance and style to your fence line. The Picket Fence is Pressure Treated to ensure that it is free from rot and insect infestation for up to 10 years.

Product Features
 
 
10 year timber guarantee
 
All of the timber fence panels are pressure treated, protecting them against rot and fungal decay for up to ten years. We’re so sure of this that we offer a 10 year guarantee. The pressure treatment method means that you won’t have to retreat your fence for at least ten years. Once it's built, you can just sit back and enjoy.
 
 
Pressure Treated
 
All the timber we use in our fencing system is pressure treated, rather than dip treated like our competitors. We use a non-toxic treatment that forces the preservative deep into the pre-cut timber using a large pressure treatment vat. The fence posts are treated to Class 4 which is suitable for in-ground use and the panels are treated to class 3 which is suitable for above ground use. So each piece is not only pressure treated, but is pressure treated to the correct level for its function. We add a brown colourant to the treatment to ensure our fence panels have a far more attractive finish than the unsightly green that pressure treatment commonly leaves. This is an added cost for us but we think the finished look is worth it.
 
 
Planed Wood
 
Every single piece of timber in our fence systems is planed after being cut to size, even the fence posts. This gives our fence panels an attractive, polished finish. Many competitors use thin, rough sawn timber that leaves your fence looking frayed with splinters and leaves unsightly gaps as they don’t overlap properly.

To ensure the very best quality, we only use slow-grown White Spruce Timber, which is harvested in cold climates to ensure solid, dense log rings. This gives the wood superior strength and longevity, and also a much more consistent colour than the likes of Pine.

 

Despite the care we take in selecting the very best Timber available, it’s not like predictable brick or cold steel, this natural material has characteristics and quirks unique to every log.

 

Because our timber logs once fed water and nutrients back and forth from its roots to its leaves, its very nature is to be porous and swell up when it gets wet. Any wooden product will do this throughout its life, but there are a few things you can do to help limit this movement.

 

These include:

1. A great design!

  • Don’t worry, we’ve got this one covered. We’re experts when it comes to all things timber, so we have designed our products from the ground up with its natural properties in mind.

2. Water Repellent Treatment.

  • How you customise and decorate your product is up to you, however we would recommend that you use an appropriate water repellent treatment. This really helps minimise the amount of moisture that the timber can absorb. Therefore minimising the risk of any major movement.
  • (Please note: water repellent treatment is not the same as pressure treatment, which protects against rot and insect infestation, and which we guarantee for 10 Years!)

3. Ventilation.

  • Keeping your timber building ventilated is no less important than keeping your house well ventilated. This is especially true if you plan to cover up your floorboards with something (double check with an expert, that the material is suitable to do so), as moisture can become trapped between layers of non-breathable materials and build-up, leading to floors becoming rotten.

4. Regular Seasonal Maintenance.

  • Whether you opt to build your product yourself, or have us do it for you, don’t be afraid to tighten the odd bolt here and there. Your product is a life improving investment, so it’s only right to give it some love and care from time to time. Make sure that it’s properly treated before the rainy months, and you make adjustments to doors and window frames, when needed.

 

Natural Timber Properties

After building your timber product, this natural construction will begin to ‘settle’. This means that you will likely see some natural timber imperfections appear. These types of natural imperfections can include:

 

  • Cracks

 

 

  • Splits

  • Shakes

 

 

  • Warping / Twisting

 

  • Expansion and Contraction

 

 

Please be aware that, as these are natural timber properties they are not considered as defects under our Terms & Conditions (for more information, check out our Ts&Cs here). However, in most cases, these imperfections will not impact the integrity or function of your timber product, and/or can easily be rectified. For advice on how to rectify these and for more support, please get in touch with our Customer Services Team on cs@dunsterhouse.co.uk.
