Gravel Boards and Fence Posts
Panel fences and closeboards are incredibly popular nowadays and individuals frequently have us supply and install them. One of the main reasons why many choose these kinds of fences instead of other types is because they look great and provide the highest level of privacy and security. Additionally, they also serve as wonderful backgrounds for plants and can even support the growth of some climbing species on them.
To complete your fence, gravel boards are necessary as they stop moisture from adhering to their wooden material and thus drastically slow down the rate at which they decay. Apart from that, they also give a neat appearance and can be built on uneven ground while still making sure that no gaps exist at the bottom. Oftentimes, the boards that we construct run beneath the fence in a horizontal direction.
Although wooden boards look great especially in rural areas, they have the propensity to fall victim to the elements over time regardless if they’re treated with special chemicals. Hence, people that opt to have them installed end up spending more on upkeep in the long run. Luckily, gravel boards exist as a great alternative for those that wish to minimise the cost of maintenance.
In addition to wooden and gravel boards, the fence that you’ll have built must have posts. Like boards, they can be made out of different materials. The most common of which are wood and solid concrete. While the former option is cheaper, the latter is more durable and due to that, is more popular amongst individuals. Aside from that, concrete posts are also more stable because they’re firmly anchored to the ground, unlike their wooden counterparts which have the propensity to collapse if pressure is subjected to them. In fact, hundreds of wooden posts collapse annually due to freak storms and strong prevailing winds.
Now if one insists on installing wooden posts because they simply look better, our team at Worthing Fence Contractors can supply posts that employ both concrete and wood to make them strong enough to withstand the elements. However, it’s important to keep in mind that we’re only able to do this if the ground is completely stable and the fence’s position is just right.
