Save Money by Installing a Pressure Treated Fence.

What is pressure treated timber and why is it better?

We are approved installers for Jacksons Fencing across Shropshire, the wooden fence posts and panels are treated with a preservative concentrate through the sapwood of the timber, which as the ‘living’ outermost section of the wood, that is most likely to become adversely affected by the challenges of the outdoor environment, right through and into the heartwood, which although technically dead, is still susceptible to rot and damage caused by wood-boring pests.

The treatment of the timber fence posts and panels with a unique preservative called Jakcure guarantees their life for 25 years.

How will installing pressure treated timber fencing save you money?

The simple answer is if you adopt a long-term view, using pressure treated timber represents a low life time cost. Yes, the initial monetary investment may be slightly higher when compared to untreated timber fencing, however over a 25-year period if you factor in the cost of having to replace rotten timber and possibly the fence posts plus the labour then pressure treated timber.
