Post and Rail Fence Derby
Post and Rail Fencing
The post and rail (P&R) method of fencing utilises wooden posts (generally 6x6in" or 8x8in" size), set approximately 4ft - 6ft apart, onto which flat rails are nailed. The fence is traditionally very strong and can offer many years' service without undue maintenance problems. It also provides a good boundary definition and is considered the most aesthetically pleasing fencing method.
Post and rail fencing has been used in Britain for many years, but it is now becoming less popular as more maintenance-free types of fencing become available. The main problem with standard post and rail is that they can be very labour-intensive to construct, especially large residential and commercial jobs. It all depends on your fencing requirements and for what purposes you need the fence for? Is it for containment, security or just as a nice looking fence to surround your home or business.
If you're looking for a traditional, classic and rustic way to keep your garden and home safe and secure then look no further - the post and rail fence is the solution. If you're looking at methods of fencing in your garden or yard, or if you are considering building a new fence for security purposes has a post and rail fence is an excellent option.
Probably the most expensive fencing method that exists, a post and rail fence might seem something of a luxury to your average person looking for a new way to secure their property or garden from potential intruders. But if you have the cash to spare it's worth considering, if only because of its aesthetic appeal. Call Premium Fencing if this kind of fence interests you.
Certainly, a post and rail fence would go well with the other high end items that you might own, like an expensive car or gold watch. The cost of having this type of fencing installed (which can be up to twice as much as other methods) is more than made up for by how it will improve the appearance of your property, commercial building, land or stately home.
The post and rail fencing method is a great way of creating a barrier around your garden to keep your pets or other animals safe . It's very important to make sure that your fence is high enough to prevent other animals from hopping over, but it also needs to be low enough for you to get in and out easily. The price of a post and rail fence varies depending on the size of your property. Remember the larger the area the more expensive it will be!
The benefits of using post and rail fencing are that is long lasting and durable so it will last you a life time if properly looked after. It's also very easy to repair as it can be taken down within minutes. If one post does become loose it's easy to repair.
