Kingston Upon Thames based Specialist Fence Company

Oilcanfinish are a fence company who specialise in the installation of bespoke modern slat fencing and Jacksons Fencing fencing systems. We use Use Class 4 Jacksons Fencing Timber Posts or Galvanised Powder Coated Steel Posts providing your property with privacy and security and an immaculate finish.

There are numerous fence panels and posts to choose from when planning your fence. Any DIY Store will be able to sell you entry level panels. We do not install these. The main reason is these budget fence panels life expentancy is 5-8 years maximum because of how they were made, this is why they are the lowest priced products in the market. The type of wood used in entry level fence panels is fast grown timber and is filled with knots, the lower quality of nails used leads to rust marks and lines, the quality of construction means perfectly square corners and joints have not been made, and the treatment process of these fence panels is often dip treated versus pressure treated. All of these factors mean budget fence panels are below our standards and we can not recommend them to our clients. Our entry level fence panel is planed smooth and comes with a 25 year guarantee, and is only slightly more expensive.

As a family friendly business we need our fences and posts to be planed and sanded smooth to protect kids hands from slivers and cuts. We use rounded or chamfered edges on our posts and timber making them visually more attractive. Wherever possible we try to avoid using rough and sharp edged concrete posts for the same reason.

Slat Screen Fencing

We design and build custom fencing with Slat Rails, either as Fence Panel Sections or attached directly to Timber Posts. Our recommendation for these slat fences is Canadian Western Red Cedar slats, primarily due to Cedar’s natural resistances to fungus, wood boring insects, and rot.

Other less expensive options include Redwood Slats or pre-made Fence Panels designed as Slat Panels for ease of installation.

Canadian Western Red Cedar has a slight variance in colour between the slats providing a natural look combined in a modern style.

35-40 Year Life Expectancy for Cedar if treated regularly.

Slats are generally 20mm thick and come in widths of 38, 45, 70, 95 and 145mm and can be built to any height.

Featheredge Fence Installer


We install Featheredge Board Fencing with Arris and Cap Rails with either Timber or Concrete Fence Posts for a traditional look.

The horizontal arris rails can be fitted into Timber or Concrete Mortise Posts using traditional mortise methods or using galvanised brackets into square timber posts.

Featheredge Fencing can be built in any section length up to a width of 3mt between fence posts and to any height.

Fence Staining and Painting


All Fence Panels can be Sealed, Stained, or Painted to achieve your desired look. Staining and Painting not only enhances the appearance of your fence, it also protects your fence and extend the life of your investment.

For fence painting we recommend prime your fence first. Our recommendation for exterior wood primers is Zinnser Bullseye 123 (water based) or Zinnser Coverstain (oil based). Once your fence is primed, use an exterior grade wood paint such as Zinnser Allcoat or an opaque wood stain such as Dulux Trade Ultimate Opaque or Sadolin Superdec.

For fence staining there are numerous options, our preferences are oil based products which offer both UV Resistance and Protection from Wood Decay. Osmo and Owatrol would be our first choices for wood stain. For a more cost effective UV Resistant Treatment, use Barrettines Wood Protective Treatment.
