Board on Board
Do you want a fence that will give you the ultimate form of privacy. There are no gaps, the boards overlap each other creating a cool almost cascade like design, and it has a surprising amount of durability which is important for Florida residents.
If this sounds like the fence you want then a board on board fence is the one for you. These fences are meant for the ultimate amount of privacy, because by design they have no gaps. The only way you can see inside them is by climbing above the fence. So nobody walking by will see through and even walking up to the fence will not be good enough to see inside.
This style of fence is great for not only keeping people out but keeping loved ones like pets and children inside. Since there are no gaps your dog will not be able to squeeze out through a hole and go for a trip down the neighborhood. Children can play inside the fence safely with no fear of them finding a way out.
Board on board fences are a favorite among Central Florida residents thanks to not only their privacy, but the second row of fences creates durability that gives them a bit more resistance to the constant thunderstorms that they will face throughout the summer.
How Does It Work
A board on board fence is essentially two fences combined into one. The first layer of the fence will be installed on the outside with gaps spread throughout the boards. However, unlike a shadowbox fence where the gaps will remain, a second layer of the fence is installed to close those gaps and overlapping the previously installed boards. Thus why it’s called board on board.
This overlap removes any possibility of a nosy neighbor sneaking over to look inside your fence and see what you are up to on the inside. This creates a comfortable feeling of privacy for you to do whatever you feel like in your backyard.
These boards, while creating privacy from the outside, also help keep everything on the inside. When you wake up in the morning do you let your dog out back and have to watch them before you get ready for work? With a board on board fence it is less likely your dog will be able to leave the backyard, giving you the peace of mind to let your dog out while you do whatever it is you need to do.
Due to the nature of having two layers of fencing there is a little bit more durability in a board on board fence. It will last longer and most storms will not be able to knock a board on board fence down without some serious power behind them. You can feel comfortable that your average afternoon thunderstorm will not do any serious damage to your board on board fence.
This durability also means that your board on board fence may stand the test of time better than your average wood fence. If you plan on staying in your home for an extended period of time then a board on board fence may be perfect for you.
Benefits Of Board on Board Fence
A board on board fence is great but not for everyone. Someone that is seeking out gaps to look through may want to look into a shadowbox, or if you want a more simplistic design then a stockade fence could be better, but for some homes there is no better option for them than a board on board fence. This style of fence is perfect for people seeking out privacy or desire a potentially cool design.
The ultimate benefit of a board on board fence is privacy. These fences lack the gaps of a shadowbox and there’s even less possibility of someone peeking through than a stockade fence. The overlapping board style creates a fence that cannot be easily peeked into it. Giving a much desired sense of privacy.
An Interesting Style
The average fence has a very simplistic style, but when you look closely at a board on board fence there is a very unique cascade effect to it that no other fence has. This unique style gives you the opportunity to have something different from your neighbors. It also may increase your home value which is a major plus!
Do you want a better sense of privacy from your fence? One that is durable and set to stand the test of time better than your average fence? Then a board on board fence may be what is right for you.

Reviews from our previous client's
Doug Michels and his crew were great! Doug personally measured and estimated the screen, made the building permit application and managed the project. That's personal service! His price was fair and very competitive. His workmanship is superb and we love our screened lanai! We could not be happier.
