Most often, corrugated fences are chosen for one simple reason – they are inexpensive, while durable and reliable. At the same time, they do not put forward special requirements for their external parameters, believing that we are only talking about the choice of color. We will prove that a fence made of corrugated board can also be beautiful!
Today, a corrugated fence can be seen around many private houses and summer cottages. But most often, such fences look rather boring, although they reliably perform their main function – they mark the boundaries of the site and hide its inhabitants from prying eyes..
Meanwhile, today manufacturers offer a wide selection of corrugated board, which perfectly imitates such natural materials as stone and wood. Believe me, in some cases, without coming close to such a fence, it is impossible to understand what kind of material is in front of you.
If you want your inexpensive fence to be also very attractive, unusual and look much more expensive than it really is, use our tips and ideas regarding the use of corrugated board, which looks completely different from the usual metal sheet.
Such a high fence, built from real planks, would cost an order of magnitude more. In addition, wood needs additional protection from external influences, but corrugated board with such a coating does not.
Decorative corrugated board most often imitates stone, wood and brickwork. But wood, stones and bricks themselves can be very different, differ in texture and shades! So there can be a lot of options for decorative corrugated board. Such a corrugated board is also made of steel sheet with a layer of zinc, but on top it is covered with a polymer material, which gives a decorative effect.
Of course, it is better if the sheet of metal is covered with such a layer on both sides. And the point here is not only in the decorative effect, because from the side of the yard the fence will look no less beautiful than from the street. Just a polymer material significantly extends the life of the fence. If a fence made of ordinary corrugated board, as the manufacturers assure, will last about 20 years, then a fence with a polymer coating on both sides can stand up to 30 years.
Decorative corrugated board can be flat or embossed. In the case of such an imitation of wooden boards, the vertical relief is very appropriate.
The fence looks truly reliable, unapproachable, giving the full impression of solid brickwork, especially from afar
The most successful options for combining decorative corrugated board with other materials are:
- Decking, imitating wood, next to the supports made of real stone or brickwork. This combination can be called classic and win-win. Landscape designers advise to select shades as follows – the “tree” of the corrugated board can either contrast with the dark stone of the supports, that is, be much lighter, or be in the same color scheme with it.
- Decking under a stone should be combined only with a concrete base and brick supports. As an option – together with massive logs-pillars. Or apply independently, without combining.
- The corrugated fence can be combined with a variety of materials, in this case the choice is limited only by the imagination and capabilities of the owners.
- Decking for brick should not be combined with supports made of real brickwork. So you only emphasize – this is a fake. It is better to use combinations with siding for finishing fence posts or artificial stone.
The bright shade of the wood goes well with the lighter shade of brickwork. In general, the brick could be darker, it would not spoil the overall harmonious picture
