Composite Fencing- Outlast the elements

http://www.wcontracting.net

Below are a few pics of a composite fence we recently completed. The fence is 6′ tall and runs approx. 170′. This fence is located on top of a large hill so high winds are a regular issue the h0meowner. To address this issue we built the fence with 6×6 pressure treated posts with a minimum of 120 lbs. of concrete at the base of each post. The ground here is very rocky so its very stable, if I had softer soil I would be adding at least another 60 lbs per hole. The framing of the fence is all pressure treated lumber with the rails being attached the the post by means of a Simpson tie fence bracket (FB24z). The composite fence is Fiberon brand and is attached to the framing with 1 1/2″ galvanized staples. The completed fence looks great. Using a composite material for fencing is a great way to go. It gives you a long lasting, very nice looking, easy to maintain fence. The cost of the fence is definitely paid off by the longevity. Get a composite fence for long term performance and ease of maintenance.
