Timber fence capping
Timber fences are one of the most popular types of fences. They are used in a wide variety and come in many designs and styles to choose from. One of the applications of timber is to form the fence capping that holds the fence in place. Let’s take a look at different styles in which we can use timber to make fence capping.
Treated pine fence capping
Treated pine is usually a great and lighter substitute for timber. It is given special treatment to make it free from rotting and protection against fungi and termites. Treated pine capping is made to sit on the top of the post and the overhang on the fence slats to protect your fence from rain. They do not allow accumulation of rainwater due to their slope, which allow the water to run down.

On the other hand, is rail capping which is mostly attached to the vertical timber fencings. The top of the fence capping is usually sloped so that the water from rain do not damage the fence.
