What Fence Posts Are Best To Use?
When it comes to working out the best fence posts you should use, it really comes down to the style of fence you would like to install, for instance, a timber paling fence generally comes with timber post however a steel post will always outlast a timber post.
Steel Posts vs Timber Posts
A Steel post will always outlast a timber post, this being said you would be looking at an additional charge to have a steel post offer a timber post, but you will get MANY more years out of your fence having steel posts.
A Timber post is cheaper, so if you are looking at wanting to move from your home in the next 5 or so years, we would recommend and timber post as this is a more cost-effective option for you.
Colorbond is made entirely of steel, thus your posts in a colorbond fence would always be a steel post, however, to strengthen your colorbond fence you can always have a 50x50mm post or 65x65mm post-installed with your channel posts making your colorbond fence a lot stronger, this is not always needed, the most important thing when building any style fence is your footing, making sure your post is set 600mm deep into the ground.
