There is a huge plethora of amazing and money-saving benefits to entirely upgrading to composite fencing for your outdoor space at home, and, contrary to popular belief, the installation of composite fence panels yourself in your own back garden is as relatively simple as installing a traditional wooden fence boundary.The Main Benefits of Composite Fencing
The main advantages of upgrading to eco-friendly fencing from reputable suppliers such as eComposite Products include a substantial decrease in necessary maintenance levels, a lightweight and far more easily transportable material, aesthetically impressive color and texture options, and a significantly larger longevity lifeline for the fence itself.
Planning Your Composite Fence
The density and quality of the foundations that you intend to have when constructing your composite fence heavily influences what type of fence posts are best for you to use.
For example, if you are installing your fence in soft soil or any other material that isn’t of concrete origin, it is strongly advisable that you use round metal poles to install the posts. However, it is much safer and will create a much sturdier composite fence finished product if you install the posts on solid, concrete foundations.
How to Install the Fence Posts
Ensure that when you install your fence posts they are on your side of the fence, so you are constructing your fence on your side of the garden.
Drill pilot holes in the base of each post and ensure the hole goes completely through to meet the solid stand in the middle. The pilot holes should be as close to three millimeters as possible, and there need to be two holes drilled in each post.
Using a good quality spirit level, place the post supports in the correct position and make sure that each post support is entirely level with the next. Use the four pilot holes to accurately mark where you need to drill the support fixing holes.
Drill the support fixing holes to the right depth, and securely press the fence post stand into the ground before placing the fence post carefully and steadily on the support.
How to Install the Composite Fence Panels
Insert the smallest end of the panel cap clip into the side of the panel cap and repeat this step on the other side of the cap. Now it is time to add your composite fence panels.
Skim the first composite fence panel down each of the post grooves until it sturdily rests on the panel cap, then slide each subsequent fence panel onto the one below. Once you have inserted the right amount of composite fence panels to achieve the height of the fence that you require, insert the cap clips to either side of the panel cap and place the fence post caps into the very top of the fence posts. Once your composite fence is constructed, slide the post inserts into any grooves in the fence that are open to complete the sleek, aesthetic appearance.
