We often get calls for new garden fences when the old ones start to give way, especially when wooden posts have succumbed to rot. It’s a common story, and it’s no surprise that many of our customers are switching to fences with concrete gravel boards and posts. Given our often damp UK weather, it’s a smart move since wood is prone to rot in these conditions.
Why Go for Concrete Fence Posts?
There are plenty of good reasons to choose concrete fence posts, reinforced with steel rebar, over traditional timber posts. Concrete is tough and long-lasting, making it a favorite for commercial fences, like those around car parks. It’s popular for both business and home fencing because, when done right, it needs very little upkeep.
Plus, unlike wood, concrete posts don’t need any painting or staining. They’re pretty much maintenance-free, which is always a bonus.
What’s Special About Steel Reinforced Concrete Fence Posts?
These posts are a top pick for both residential and commercial fencing because of their durability. They’re particularly great when combined with concrete gravel boards and feather edge fencing. Homeowners often choose this combination as it stands up to the elements far better than timber.
Here in Sheffield, where rain is pretty much part of our daily life, having wood directly in the wet soil means it’s only a matter of time before rot sets in. But with concrete gravel boards, the wood is raised off the ground, and the concrete posts, being rot-resistant, last much longer.
