Types of soundproof fence
When you’re researching the cost of a soundproof fence, you’ll notice that there are a number of different types of fences available. Here is an overview of the most popular types of soundproof fence:
By far the most popular material for garden fences in the UK, strong wooden fences tightly installed can provide an excellent barrier to noise in your garden. The thicker and more dense the wooden fence, the better soundproofing it will provide.
One of the downsides to using wood as your soundproof fence material is that it is prone to weathering when exposed to the elements. To help extend the lifespan of a wooden soundproof fence, you’ll need to make sure it is treated with a weatherproof sealant – and a layer of insulation can also help.
Metal soundproof fence
If you’re after a more industrial look to your soundproof fence, metal fences offer excellent soundproofing. To really amp up the level of soundproofing you can install a multi-layered metal fence. Just make sure you choose a water-safe and erosion-safe metal material so that you don’t end up with a damaged, rusty fence in the future.
Concrete soundproof fence
Concrete or stone blocks tend to naturally work as a good soundproofing material due to their thickness – making them ideal for a soundproof fence. Often to improve their aesthetic, concrete fences are covered in wire mesh and then undergrowth and bushes planted in them.
Combining a concrete or stone fence with plants and branches means you add an extra layer of soundproofing as well as creating a more natural look for your garden.
