Most feather edge fences, which we build in Cardiff, takers between 1 to 3 working days to build.

However, we do sometimes use machinery, such as mini diggers, that allow us to build the garden fence even faster. For example, sometimes on the end of the excavator, is an attachment, which allows us to dig holes in the ground, for us to put the fence posts in. This is a much faster than digging the holes by hand.

Some Cardiff fencing contractors, therefore dig the holes by hand, using a spade, and then they have to lift the soil again into a wheelbarrow.

We always by top quality timber, the vast majority of the timber we purchase is pressure treated timber, many fencing companies call this green timber. The reason for this is pressure treated timber often has a green colour, because it is sprayed with wood preservative, and this is what gives it its green colour.

We purchase most of our timber from Mon Timber, a timber merchants within Newport.

More durable

Here in Britain, we have a lot of rain, and it can be very windy, this means that some lap panel fences can simply blow down in the wind quite easily.

For example, really strong gusts of wind, can damage a lot of panel fencing, this is why a lot of customers ask us to build feather edge.
Do you use pressure treated timber or dip treated timber?

We use both, however we have to say that most fencing companies now use pressure treated timber more often than dip treated timber.
Pressure treated timber is sometimes referred to as green timber, it is good quality pressure treated timber it can last a long period of time. We go to builders’ merchants in Newport and builders merchants in Cardiff, that we know suppliers with top quality timber, we pay more for our timber than some other fencing contractors, but we do that because we want good top quality timber that we know will last a long period of time.

Buying the cheapest timber that we can buy, we think is a total false economy, because what can happen is the wood can split, for example, really cheap feather edge slats, can often split very easily, so we are low quality, simply because often the two thin.
Instead, we buy top quality timber.


Have you built many feather edge fences?

We have built a huge amount of garden fencing, we’ve been building feather edge fences for over 10 years. We therefore build very high-quality wooden fencing.


So, what is feather edge fencing?

It can be made with concrete posts, but more often our customers wants a close board fence built with wooden posts.
You need to make sure that the fence is built with really chunky wooden posts, really good thing quality fence posts. As a fence post are like the backbone of the fence, they are what holds everything up, with a starter move, the whole fence can fall apart.

So, what you are is really good thick wooden posts, they either need to be made from pressure treated timber, or dip treated timber.
Then there needs to be a good solid fence rail, this should be made from pressure treated timber or dip treated timber.

Then there’s the feather edge slats, these need to be good-quality, they need to be quite thick, and again they need to be made from pressure treated timber or dip treated timber.

Then there needs to be concrete mixed with sand water and cement, and some fencing contractors use gravel as well to make the mix even stronger.

The holes need to be dug very deeply, and then the fence post needs to be put in the hole and concrete put around it.


How much does feather edge fencing cost?

The price of timber, does move up and down. For example, if we were to offer a quote to build a fence in January, then the quote might have moved up or down if we to offer to build the same fence in say December. Therefore, timber prices do fluctuate, therefore we leave our quote open for a few weeks, but then we might need to adjust the quote, because timber prices do fluctuate.

So, we would need to come out your garden, measure how long the fence needs to be, how many skips we need to get rid of the waste, and we would need to see if we need to cut back any bushes, and then we can offer you a quote.

Once we come out to see your garden, in Cardiff or in the Vale of Glamorgan, we then aim to get a quote back to you to build a fence or decking within 48 hours of meeting you.

Normally we can start work on building the new fence then within a week, we have a very large team of labourers, so we can often build most garden fences in one single day.

If you do have a large garden then it might take is more than a day to build the fence, but we will aim to build the fence as fast as we can.
