Purchase a new stack of fence panels and you have a complete, brand-new looking fence that will last for years to come, right? I’m afraid not. But do not worry, we are here to help.
Your boundaries could look a lot better, and last longer, with a little support from some carefully considered fencing accessories. In this article, we explore the top five fencing accessories to consider for your next fencing project.
1. Fence posts
Your brand-new panels will not look their best if supported by old, wonky, or cracked fence posts, so be sure to consider a high-quality fence posts system. Not only will a new set of fence posts determine the structural integrity of your fencing, but also play a part in the aesthetics of your outside space too.
Now, you are probably wondering, so, what fence posts are best for my panels then? Should I choose concrete? Or perhaps timber? And what about galvanised steel? In our eyes, there is only one right answer, let us explain why.
You may not be aware of the issues that timber and concrete posts can bring to your fencing. Prone to splitting, warping, rotting, and cracking, the durability of both materials is relatively underwhelming. Then there is installation times, long-term costs and sustainability to consider. In short, we know of a much more effective choice for your fencing.
