Why Choose a Board on Board Fence?

Good fences may not make good neighbors, but they can certainly be a great stepping stone toward building a good relationship with the folks next door and keeping your own family safe.

A board on board fence offers both neighbors several benefits, including privacy, security, and versatility in designs and finishes. Since board on board fences are wooden, they can be stained or painted for both protection and to suit the style of the homes they're attached to. Staining or painting the boards not only helps the overall design flow well with the houses, but it also works to protect the wood from any damage that might be caused by weathering and helps keep the fence both sturdy and new-looking for years after it was initially installed.

Board on board fences create a 'shadowbox' effect inside by attaching boards to both sides of the supporting structure. While there is some space between the boards once the fence is completed, it's generally not enough for a pet or a small child to squeeze through. If this is a concern for you, just choose a design that places the boards tighter together. Not only does this double-sided design mean great privacy and security, it also means that no one is stuck with the 'unfinished' side of the fence - the one that shows the support posts.
