One of the biggest threats to the condition of your fence is the rain. If the rain works its way into the margin of the wood, it can cause core damage and rot. Cappings are a vital fencing component that are very important in protecting your fence from potential rain damage.  The cappings are designed to cover the top of the fence, and without them the top of the fence is exposed to the elements. By adding cappings to your fence, it will provide extra protection and resist for longer against the elements. Not only are they vitally important in protecting your fence, but they also have great decorative qualities. Cappings are available in a range of colours, styles and shapes to match the rest of your garden. At Express Timber, we stock and supply high quality fence cappings.

Fence Rails

Fence rails are the component of your fence that is responsible for preventing sagging and bowing of the fence over time. Two rails, one at the top and one at the bottom, is usually sufficient enough.  A middle rail can be added to help keep the boards in position and it may limit warping and twisting. However, they aren’t always necessary and the general rule of thumb for fencing rails is to have a rail for every 24 inches in height. Therefore, the amount of rails really depends on the height and style of your fence. Pickets attach to the rails which run horizontally between the posts, The fence rail connects the posts with the fasteners.
