How Deep Should My Fence Posts Be?

The depth of fence posts depends on the height of the fence. As we know, the fence posts are necessary in maintaining the stability of the fence. Essentially, without knowing the exact height of the fence, it will be impossible to determine the required depth of fence posts. To give you an idea, average height fences, would typically require 3 to 4 deep fence posts. So, if you have shorter or taller fences than average, you will then need shallower or deeper fences, respectively. When digging for fence posts, also leave enough space for concrete, which is necessary for stability.

Should the Fence Touch the Ground?

It depends on the purpose and the material of the fence. If the main purpose of the fence is to keep insects and pests away, it will then need to be in contact with the ground. Fences constantly touching the ground is a main concern for property owners since it is no secret that moisture can adversely affect fences. Although this is true, there are different materials that you can opt for that are moisture proof. If you need something that will touch the ground, make sure to communicate it clearly with your fence company so they can give you appropriate materials.

Does the Weather Affect the Installation?

Yes, it does. There are several weather conditions that we look out for. During these times, we are likely to suspend the fence installation. As much as we want to avoid delays, we also do not want to compromise the safety of our people and the quality of our work. We normally avoid high humidity, heavy rain, too low temperature, and too high temperature. These conditions can significantly affect the proper setting of concrete. At the same time, too low or too high temperatures can make materials contract or swell. We try to avoid using materials in their unusual state.

What Material Should I Use for My Fence?

It depends on your preferences and the conditions in your area. Each material has its characteristics that you can utilize to your advantage. If you use the right material for the matching purpose, it will be able to last long and serve you well. For example, if you need fireproof fences, then we will certainly recommend vinyl fences for you. Meanwhile, if you need private fences, you might be better off with wooden fences. But if you are looking for a fairly new material that is affordable yet durable and beautiful, then you might want to try getting Simtek fences.

How Tall Should My Fence Be?

It all depends on the type of privacy and security that you prefer. Unless, there are fence restrictions in your community. If security and privacy are not the utmost concern to you, you may opt for short fences. Other than it will not block the façade of your property, it might also cost less because of fewer material. On the other hand, if you want the ultimate security and privacy, you should opt for tall fences instead. With its 7 to 10 ft height, it will be impossible to peek through it. At the same time, it is hard to penetrate for intruders.

How Long Will the Fence Last?

It mainly depends on the material of the fence. Different materials have different life expectancy. For example, metal materials like steel and aluminum lasts longer than most materials. These are solid and compact, making it durable. Meanwhile, Simtek, chain link, and vinyl, lasts fairly long as well, with minimal maintenance. But then, if you have wood, you can expect to need more maintenance to last longer. We can guarantee you that our products here at The Saint Paul Fence Company can last a minimum of 10 years. They can last longer even without minimal maintenance. If you are interested, you can call us at 651-362-2183.
