A board on board fence is simply built by layering vertical boards on top of each other. With a Board on Board fence pickets overlap approximately 1″ on each side. When built correctly, a fence like this should not allow sunlight to penetrate through the slats. Advantages of this type of fence, other than privacy, are both sides of the fence can be equally attractive and it is true barrier for high winds. It does require the posts to be buried ,deeper than other fence types due to its weight and wind resistance.A board on board fence is commonly used by homeowners who have swimming pools or hot tubs and need more privacy than a side by side fence offers.We suggest this style of fence for homeowners who want not only a quality privacy fence but something that will accent the beauty of their home and landscape. It is not the least expensive type fence to build, but it remains visually impenetrable for its lifetime, even if the boards shrink in dry weather conditions.
Overall, the Side-by-Side fence is often the most economical type of fence style in which the pickets are nailed with the boards edge to edge. A small amount of shrinkage can be expected between the pickets of a Side-by-Side style fence creating a small gap.We recommend this type of fence if you are only doing it for your own side. If you are requiring a fence for both you and your neighbor and need full privacy, board on board is better in this situation.
