Cement Board Fencing

Modern. Low Maintenance. Affordable. Unique. What’s not to love?

Cement boards, often referred to as “Hardie Boards”  (after a popular manufacturer) have been around for a while as a house siding alternative, made up of 90% sand and cement.  We love it on outdoor fences. Dattola Designs has installed a few Cement Board fences recently and we decided to use it on our own yard for a couple of reasons;

  1. Price: It is WAY cheaper than a wood fence (especially with the rising cost of lumber)
  2. Style: It’s different and modern looking.  We like different & we LOVE mid-century modern
  3. Longevity: It wears much longer than a traditional wood fence.
  4. Fire Resistance: The last local wild fire came within 25 yards of our house, so fire resistance is important!

We chose to add a panel of wood to the top of our fence to bring in some warmth; with Hardie Board fence is it can come across too sterile.

First Step: Weld frame and attach wood panels
