Although there are many choices when it comes to fencing your yard, many Texans still feel that you just can’t beat the timeless look of a beautiful wood fence. There are virtually endless options when it comes to the look of a wood fence. From the type of wood used, to the height, pattern, stain, and accents selected – you can customize your fence in every way. The fence posts you choose will determine how often you’ll need Fort Worth fence services – which can be expensive. Today’s blog post discusses why Postmaster fence posts add durability and a longer life span to your fence without taking away from the curb appeal of your home.
Fence post options
In the past, an all-wood fence would traditionally have wooden fence posts. This means that the supports holding up your fence are no stronger than the fence itself. It is subject to the same elements as your fence and if you have to repair or replace the wood, you’ll have to fix the posts as well. Over time, wind and rain can warp, damage, or rot wooden fence posts. Wood can also be vulnerable to termite damage. If the wood posts are chemically treated, implanting posts into the ground raises concerns about safety and seepage of said chemicals into the local water systems.
Steel posts are a much more durable choice for supporting your fence. Steel holds up to high winds and is not subject to termite damage or rot. However, round steel posts are attached to the fence with brackets and are visible. It’s also important to note that many steel fence posts may rust over time if not properly rustproofed.
Why is Postmaster different?
Postmaster steel posts are manufactured differently from traditional round steel posts. Their U shape allows them to hide discreetly within the wood of your fence and be covered with a wood plank. The post sits flush with your fence planks and cannot be seen. This does not limit your fence design options. Any size fence and any arrangement can benefit from Postmaster fence posts.
Postmaster is rust-resistant. The open design allows easy water drainage. It’s made of structural steel with a galvanized zinc coating which prevents rusting.
Patented by Master Halco, Postmaster fence posts are backed by a 15-year limited manufacturer’s warranty. You can choose Postmaster with confidence knowing that the people behind it stand by their product. Master Halco has been in business for over fifty years and is known as the premier provider in the fence industry.
You’ll benefit from weather resistance, because Postmaster posts have been shown to withstand winds of up to 70 miles per hour. They also won’t warp over time from rain or water damage like wood does.
Unlike wood, steel posts are not subject to termite damage or rot. Damaged wooden fence posts could be worse than they appear. You could end up with sections of your fence collapsing before you even realize you have a termite problem!
In addition to being superior in every way to wood fence posts, postmaster posts are also environmentally friendly because their posts are made from recycled steel. Additionally, there’s no worry about the environmental effects of chemically treated wood posts.
Because they don’t rely on a bracket system, Postmaster is easy to install. Each flange has symmetrical pre-drilled holes for installation. This helps keep manufacturing and installation costs down which is a win for the consumer, and DFW Fence Contractor is always thinking about our clients first.
Should you invest in Postmaster? If you plan on living in your home for more than 5 years, then the answer is yes. Postmaster is affordable! The slightly higher cost will pay dividends over the years in minimizing the repairs you will (or should we say won’t) need. The value you will get out of your beautiful wood fence will be so much greater with the peace of mind that comes with knowing it’s built to last.
