How To Transform An Old Timber Fence
Timber fences are a convenient fencing solution but they tend to deteriorate with age. Instead of replacing the fence which is costly and labour intensive, why not cover it? This allows you to retain its structural ability and apply any finish you like to hide its tired look. Whether you prefer an organic or contemporary finish, there are several natural materials you can consider to cover an old tired fence, starting with bamboo rod screens and slatted bamboo timber screens.
For this project, the owner had spent a lot on their new pool but the existing timber fence was too low to meet the requirements for pool boundary fence certification and its old tired look contrasted with the modern finish of the pool.
They did not want to replace the fence but just to increase its height and refresh its look.
House of Bamboo solution
The black rod bamboo fencing was a perfect, relatively inexpensive solution whereby the customer could use the existing fence yet clad it so it complimented the beautiful surrounds and also meet the requirements for pool fencing certification.
AFTER: The same fence clad in our natural, sustainable black bamboo
How to install bamboo rod screens
Bamboo screens are easy to install by fixing batons to your existing fence and screwing our black bamboo rod screens to those. They come as a 1200 mm roll with either 1800 or 2400 mm height and are joined with quality stainless steel wire making them suitable for coastal properties exposed to salt water.

Organic black bamboo fencing contrasts beautifully with light coloured pavers but if you prefer a more contemporary look, slatted bamboo timber fencing could be the perfect solution to upgrade a basic timber fence.
