How To Build A Composite Fence

Installing a composite fence does not require more or less work than installing a traditional fence. The main factor that would make it easier, is that you can purchase composite fence material in prefabricated segments or sections, which can easily be mounted to your main stabilization fence messages. You'll want to make sure your fence posts are properly treated and covered to prevent runoff from rotting over time at the base. Your fences should be easily mounted to these posts once they are installed and secured, with very little effort.

Step 1 - Map of your Line Fence

Calculate how much composite fencing you will need to do the job, and then determine the number of messages you will need to install to make your fence solid. When using fence panels, which are fence sections that are already constructed, you will want after a fence for each end of the length of the panels. For example, if you have 4-foot composite fence panels, you will have to post once every 4 feet to fix them. Each sign attaches to the middle of each post and continues on the row until it is finished.

Step 2 - start digging the post holes

Start on the right or left corner of where your composite fence will be mounted. You can then determine where your first job will be.

The height of your fence will determine how a deep pole hole you are going to have to dig. maybe you want it to be 1/3 of its length underground to provide the firm stand needed to hold your composite panels.

The wood does not stick to the cement, and the water will sink your messages and into the hole after pooling around it over time. This can cause decay and instability in composite fence posts over time. To avoid this, it is suggested to cover the bottom of your poles with tar before pouring into cement footers.

This will help the post stick for the cement, and also help keep the drain water from entering the post itself. It is a good idea to dig a bowl or ball shape into the bottom of your pole holes, so the cement creates a ball around the base of your pole, forcing the water away from its base.

Step 3 - Installation of composite panels

Once the messages have dried, you can install your composite fence panels. Make sure that when installing the posts, that you have the flat surfaces pointing in the right direction to allow the attachment of your panels. You can now take a measurement of how high you would like the panels mounted on the posts to be.
