Part of figuring out what you should do with your next fence is learning all you can about that fence. Fence posts are a critical element of both residential and commercial fences. The right post can support the fence for years no matter what weather or other hazards it may encounter. So, what should you know about your next set of fence posts?
Installing Fence Posts
However you decide to establish your fence, you need to make sure that the fence posts are as secure as possible. If the posts are unstable or aren’t strong enough to keep the fence upright, it could be an eyesore. Don’t upset your neighbors or allow the curb appeal of your Virginia Beach home to suffer. Also, don’t forget that weak fence posts can let even the highest-quality fence tip over. Luckily, you can trust the experts at Hercules Fence to ensure that your fence posts are correctly installed the first time, and in a timely fashion.
How far apart should your new fence posts be? The gaps between the posts should occur at intervals of six feet, seven feet, or eight feet. But when you decide where the posts go, you should also remember what the fence is being used for; a security fence will need more posts than an ornamental fence does.
Adding Fence Post Caps
One way to make your fence posts look better than they did before is to add fence post caps. These caps can make your new fence even more appealing than before. Sure, you could just leave the default cap that adorns the post, but with a custom post cap, you can make a statement about your taste and personality. Whether that cap is round, flat, or almost any other shape, the choice is yours.
If what you find in the home improvement stores doesn’t suit you, you could always choose to make some of your own instead.
