Post and Rail Fencing

Made from sturdy, durable and sustainable Golden Cypress, our traditional post and rail fencing will add solidity and value to give your property prestige and memorable appeal.

To make installation easy, all our timber post & rail fence-kits are professionally pre-cut for quick and accurate installation. Choosing between 1, 2 or 3 rail fence-kits will suit projects of all shapes and sizes. Without compromise, all our rails are F7 Structural Grade quality and all our in-ground fencekit timbers are given APVMA approved extra protection against termites and decay.

Why choose concrete fencing imitating real timber (or even worse plastic fencing imitating real timber!) when you can have the real thing?

Maintenance

Good building practice requires that all freshly cut surfaces have an application of a water repellent preservative. End-grains require particular attention, especially post tops.

On all timber to be painted, ends in particular, are to be primed with a compatible primer. If painting, light coloured paint will last longer.

All exposed, uncoated external timbers will tend to oxidise to a silvery grey colour, the degree and rate of greying dependent upon the exposure level of each element to sun, wind and rain. Although Golden Cypress has its own natural durability when used in conjunction with good building practices, we suggest using a high quality penetrating oil with effective fungicidal properties and re-coating according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Should you want a quick and even greying effect, your paint supplier should be able to add a grey tint for you.

Should you want to want to bring the natural colour back from grey,  oxalic acid has proven effective.

Regardless of what you choose, always refer to the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Some customers have suggested these options:

  • Cutek as a preservative
  • Wattyl Exterior Deck Teak Tallow – its tint colour closely matches the colour of fresh-sawn Golden Cypress
  • Livos products (for the health conscious)

Although some products require more frequent re-coating , you should also factor in the ease of re-coating.
