There are many reasons why the owners of holiday homes, cottages, campsites and other properties in Australia choose timber fences over other types. These fences provide the owners of these properties with a very high quality of security. They are highly resistant to attack from animals like koalas, emus, capibaras and other large herbivores. Moreover, the timber in these fences is kiln dried to a tough grit which makes it extremely dense and strong. This feature makes the timber fencing the perfect barrier for keeping unwanted animals out of a particular area.
The other reason why timber fences Perth is so popular is that they are easy to maintain. No matter how difficult it is to work with wood or to maintain wooden sheds and fences, they can be easily maintained using a pressure washer and a power washer. The timber fence may have to be painted occasionally depending on the climate where it is located. If the painting starts drying out and cracking, wood stain will have to be bought and applied onto the surface to restore the original gloss. To ensure that no pests or animals get into the timber fence, sealant must be used regularly and new timber stains should be bought on a regular basis.
Timber fences are usually galvanised so that the steel bars do not rust or corrode. However, the galvanised steel bars do not interfere with the aesthetic value of the timber fence since the fence is not made out of pure wood. The owner of a cottage in Australia’s South West would surely prefer his fence to be made out of timber as it looks great even without any nails or timber posts. The use of timber in a fence can also be very beneficial as it is the best material for fencing around a swimming pool.
